QNAP IP network solution successfully launched in Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital

 QNAP network surveillance system successfully launched in Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital
 QNAP network surveillance system secures the largest hospital in Taiwan
The leading surveillance solutions provider QNAP Security recently announced its VioGate Network Digital Video Recorder (NDVR) and the VioStor Network Video Recorder (NVR) are adopted by Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital (VGH-KS), one of the largest hospitals in Taiwan.  The existing closed circuit television (CCTV) system of the hospital is expanded and upgraded to a network surveillance system for more flexible management, higher expansibility, and stability.

The former CCTV system of VGH-KS has nearly reached its full capacity for monitoring and recording of the existing 400 cameras in the medical and OPD building.  QNAP's VioGate NDVR and VioStor NVR solutions were introduced in two phases for merging the analogue-based monitoring system with the new IP-based surveillance.  200 new cameras were installed with the use of the VioStor series which increased the total number of analog and network cameras to 600 in the hospital.

"QNAP has set a successful example for merging the CCTV system with NDVR and NVR solutions," said Peace Kuo, Senior Product Manager from QNAP Security.  "Traditional CCTV systems were widely used in hospitals, banks, and shopping centres, etc.  However, there are a number of restrictions, e.g. remote monitoring is not allowed, very low scalability due to the physical wiring limitation.  By installing our NDVR and NVR systems, the existing CCTV system can be upgraded to an IP-based system which supports monitoring multiple cameras from remote locations and remote recording.  While the old analog cameras are retained, new cameras can be flexibly added to the surveillance system by simply connecting them to the network.  This saves much cost in establishing a network surveillance system with higher flexibility."

QNAP NVR solutions support the widest range of the network cameras from Panasonic BB/ BL/i-Pro, CanonArecont, Sanyo, Sony, Mobotix, IQeye, ACTi and Toshiba etc.  They are compatible with GPI and GPO devices for event handling.  The Linux OS is embedded on the surveillance system which guarantees lower chances of virus attack or hacking compared to PC-based solution.  The recording data can be saved on the built-in hard drives or to a remote storage location (e.g. QNAP NAS).  For further information of QNAP NDVR and NVR solutions, please visit the website here.
