Samsung Techwin CCTV cameras have been installed in over 200 Komercni Banka branches throughout the Czech Republic.
Komercni Banka is one of the largest banking organisations in the Czech Republic serving approximately 1.5 million customers via a nationwide branch network. It was founded in 1990 following the division of the former State Bank of Czechoslovakia.
The cameras have been supplied via ADI-Olympo, Czech's and Slovak's leading CCTV distributor. Zdenek Kubiczek, Product and Sales Manager for ADI-Olympo, said, "We have been supplying a mixture of Samsung Techwin SHC-721AP fixed cameras, SVD-4120P vandal proof domes and SID-452P camera domes. They were easy to recommend, as they are cameras with very good price/performance ratios. They also all incorporate Samsung's Super Noise Reduction technology which offers so many additional benefits, particularly when the cameras are expected to work in demanding lighting conditions."
The Samsung Techwin cameras were installed as part of the Bank's programme to replace older cameras that had served their purpose but were outdated in terms of their functionality. Several separate installation companies are involved in the project
Samsung Techwin Super Noise Reduction technology (SSNR) makes images cleaner and sharper by eliminating high levels of noise normally generated when lighting levels are low, without creating ghosting or motion blur. With SSNR applied, the file sizes of the recorded video are dramatically reduced and SSNR offer the potential of an overall cost reduction of a large CCTV system of up to 25%. This is because a major part of the cost of large CCTV systems is attributed to the provision of hard disc storage and associated equipment.
