Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital
Hikvision, the leading supplier of digital video surveillance products protects Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital

Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital is one of the best public hospitals in Johannesburg of South Africa, offering a full range of specialized healthcare services with professional physicians and cutting edge technologies. With more than 1000 beds being served, the hospital provides huge convenience for patients across and around Johannesburg. Ensuring the safety of the staff, patients, visitors and assets, therefore, is critical for Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital.


Considering more than 4000 people visiting Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital every day, a reliable surveillance platform to tackle against theft and crime, as well as to keep an eye on every corner of Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital is therefore highly required.


Hikvision, the leading digital surveillance products supplier with the headquarters in China, was selected to provide its high performance cameras and technical supports to ensure absolute safety of the hospital. In total of 500 units of cameras including DS-2CD812P-IR1 IR Network Camera, DS-2AF1-617 Analogue High-speed Dome and DS-2CD712PF-E Network Dome are being installed throughout the hospital.

Hikvision DS-2CD812P-IR1 IR Network Camera adopts H.264 video codec and advance DSP technology, offering high-definition images with resolution up to 752×582 effective pixels (480 TVL video output). The camera provides effective 10-meter coverage with minimum illumination of 0.1 Lux at F1.2 when the IR LEDs are off and 0 Lux while the IR LEDs are on. The IR LEDs would turn on automatically when illumination falls under 4 Lux, which enables the product to provide Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital high quality video surveillance 24/7.

Besides, Hikvision DS-2AF1-617 Analogue High-speed Dome, which adopts 1/4 inch Sony EXVIEW CCD, also plays a big part in safeguarding the hospital. The product supports 480 TVL horizontal resolution, 360° high-speed continuous rotation and auto flip function. Furthermore, with the features of back-light compensation, and auto/manual shifting (Color and B/W) on low illumination conditions, DS-2AF1-617 Analog High-speed Dome is capable of providing excellent inspection for the hospital. The product also supports multi-zone motion detection and sensitive area mask function, which fits into different security and privacy concerns of Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital.

Along with DS-2CD812P-IR1 IR Network Camera and DS-2AF1-617 Analogue High-speed Dome, DS-2CD712PF-E Network Dome is also being used to fully match security requirements of scenarios in Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital, such as the main entrance, porch, wards and outpatient clinic, etc. That is, security staffs in the surveillance centre are enabled to set their eyes in every corner of the hospital, and take further actions once crimes occur.

"Thanks to Hikvision's high quality cameras and professional technical supports, the crime in the hospital has been descended by 80%," said Almero Bourbon, manager of Sizoma Group that took care of the supply and installation of Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital's surveillance system. "And we also received many other projects from the South African government due to the success of Charlotte Maxeke General Hospital project."
