Messoa video surveillance solution secures Taiwan Life Insurance headquarters in Taiwan
Messoa video surveillance solution secures Taiwan Life Insurance headquarters in Taiwan

The new headquarters building of Taiwan Life Insurance, one of the top insurers in Taiwan, was complete in late 2012. Sit in the heart of the busy commercial district on Zhongshan North Road, Taipei City, the 12-storey, stone-facade building with the elegant interior design is a modern architecture engineered to meet the most stringent standards in engineering, green sustainability, and safety. Looking to house thousands of staff employees while integrating corporate resources all under one roof, Taiwan Life Insurance needed to employ a video surveillance solution that fulfills its highest requirements for securing the building’s overall safety. The insurer wanted both quality and reliability to ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone working and paying visits at the venue. Solution Several system integrators competed for the tender, and eventually Siemens came through based on the MESSOA video surveillance solution with the leading specifications and imaging performance. In early 2013, a total of just over 100 MESSOA CCTV cameras were deployed, covering the capacious 30,000sqm of gross floor space of the building. Among them, a dozen of SDS730PRO speed dome cameras were installed on the exterior of the building to secure the perimeters; thirty some pieces of SCR368 IR bullet cameras were mounted at security-concerning areas, overlooking the lobby, and key access points where adverse lighting is present; and the rest were SDR447 dome cameras, which were used for discreet monitoring of elevators, hallways, and staircases on each floor. Built in with Sony CCD and top-tier components, all three models deployed in this project deliver up to 700 TVL high quality images that are positive for identification and video analysis in case of any incidence. The camera sensitivity and image processing capability are further improved by the proprietary Lumii™ Technology to deliver sharper and crisper images under all lighting conditions at all times regardless of the locations the cameras are installed. Both the SDR447 and the SCR368 are fitted with varifocal lenses, which offer maximum flexibility in installation such that the security system can be easily adapted to various environments and be operated without any difficulty. The lean, compact size of SDR447 made the cameras discreet and unobtrusive, which goes rather well with the building’s classy interior design. Result The inspection team from Taiwan Life Insurance expressed their satisfaction after they had run a complete test on the system. They paid extra attention on the cameras’ performance, including the pan-tilt-zoom functions, as well as live view and playback video of all critical monitored scenes inside the building. Everything they saw on the monitor turned out clear, even where places that may be poor lit. The team was confident that the safety of its brand new headquarters can be well assured.

MESSOA cameras help keep the traffic in Santa Marta, Colombia in order
MESSOA cameras help keep the traffic in Santa Marta, Colombia in order

Located at northern Colombia, the city of Santa Marta is a popular tourist destination due to its colonial past and proximity to the Caribbean Sea. Job opportunities have drawn many Colombians to the city in recent years, but the urban development cannot catch up with the surging population and vehicles, which have led to congested roads and increase in traffic infractions. To mitigate the problems encountered, Santa Marta's traffic authority decided to apply stricter law enforcement while prohibiting cars with certain license plates from being on the road during rush hours on certain days to stop traffic conditions deteriorating further. To ensure the policies could be effectively enforced, the authority officials decided to deploy surveillance cameras at 10 strategic locations throughout Santa Marta. Solution With an extensive experience in traffic surveillance solution and successful case from the past, MESSOA's local partner recommended the most appropriate MESSOA traffic surveillance cameras to meet the challenging tasks. Each site is then monitored by 1 MESSOA SDR431U and up to 3 SCR515PRO cameras depending on the number of the lanes for that particular roadway. The SCR515PRO is an LPR camera specifically designed to capture close-up snapshots of vehicle information in remarkable clarity, particularly license plates. The camera is powered by MESSOA's advanced CatchAll™ II and Lumii™ III intelligent technologies. CatchAll™ II significantly improves the SCR515PRO's surveillance capabilities in tracking vehicle information even when cars are travelling at a high speed, whilst Lumii™ III further enhances camera sensitivity to deliver sharp images in adverse lighting conditions. The SDR431U is a 30M IR vandal-resistant fixed dome camera with mechanical D/N function to provide round-the-clock surveillance of the intersection. SDR431U was selected to provide an overview and panoramic video recordings of the monitored scene. All the data captured are then sent to a centralised control site, where an LPR system is used to identify whether any vehicle is not supposed to be on the road or violating traffic regulations, such as speeding, running on red light and etc. Should any infraction be detected, the system will then verify the license plate and automatically send a traffic fine notice to that driver with photo evidences attached to it. MESSOA's local partner recommended the most appropriate MESSOA traffic surveillance cameras to meet the challenging task Result With the help of traffic surveillance technology, the restrictive car policy and traffic law can be effectively enforced in Santa Marta. The authority officials are especially impressed with the performance of the MESSOA's surveillance solution as traffic violation and congestion have been notably alleviated since the deployment. Having seen how successful this project has turned out in Santa Marta, city officials from Cali and Bucaramanga, Colombia have also decided to duplicate this model in their respective cities in the near future.

Bangkok digs deep into traffic congestion issues with the help from MESSOA
Bangkok digs deep into traffic congestion issues with the help from MESSOA

In Bangkok, there are more than 2.6 million vehicles are on the roads daily. It is estimated that drivers on average have to spend around 22 days each year stuck in the traffic. One of the busiest roads penetrating the heart of Downtown Bangkok, Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway is no exception. This Highway is frequently congested with cars and motorcycles as commuters travelling in and out of the capital city, especially during the rush hours. MESSOA traffic cameras brought in to meet high requirements for traffic analysis In an effort to understand more about the traffic patterns on this congested highway for future planning, the MESSOA partner Digitalcom was commissioned by Department of Highways to set up a traffic analysis system at one of the busiest sections along the route. The main objectives are to monitor the traffic conditions, to analyze the traffic volume, as well as to calculate the time taken to travel through this section at any given time of the day. Traffic analysis requires higher standards in terms of captured image quality in order to collect the most accurate information possible for data analysis. The MESSOA cameras deployed in this project successfully met such requirements with the company’s extensive know-how in traffic surveillance. Positive identification with excellent plate capturing capability The MESSOA SCR515PRO and SCB265iPRO traffic cameras were strategically installed at four locations spread across the monitored section. The SCR515PRO was used to capture the license plate of any target vehicles. By identifying the plate numbers to track a particular vehicle, it allows the system to accurately calculate the time taken for that vehicle to pass through each of the four location points within the heavy traffic. On the other hand, the SCB265iPRO was used to capture an overview of the entire road span that allows the system to estimate the total traffic volume. Both SCR515PRO and SCB265iPRO are driven by MESSOA’s proprietary CatchAll™ engine, a self-developed image processing technology specially designed to accurately capture vital vehicle information regardless of any extraneous noises, such as vehicle headlights, heavy rain, fog, etc. This is particularly useful for installations situated in humid, raining tropical climate such as Bangkok. This CatchAll™ technology also enables the camera to capture images of vehicles traveling at all speeds up to 200kph, delivering crisper, clearer images at outdoor lighting conditions and to ensure precise captures for positive identification all day long when integrated with any LPR and car counting software solutions. Helping to collect valuable traffic data The project leader at the Department of Highways was satisfied with the analysis results and made the following remark: “The MESSOA traffic cameras deliver an exceptional image quality that will help us attain accurate information that we need for analyzing the traffic patterns on Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway. The data collected will become really valuable references as we draw up traffic policies and regulations, as well as future traffic planning for the city that is still growing and expanding”.
