Case study

Sony HD network cameras enhance security at Bank of China’s Shanxi branch
Sony’s HD network cameras featuring wide dynamic range and backlight compensation, deliver clear images in low-light and high-contrast areas
SNC-RH124 Network HD Rapid Dome Cameras are installed at the entrances

Background:

The Shanxi branch is headquartered in Taiyuan, the capital city of Shanxi Province. Opened in 1977, the branch has expanded to include 10 second-level branch offices and five sub-branches, with a total of 305 locations serving 11 Shanxi cities. It currently employs about 9,000 people. Services may be accessed in person at branch locations, or by using self-service facilities, telephonic banking, and online banking.

Challenges

With its business base expanding, the branch moved its headquarters into a newly constructed building in 2011. To support its growing business, the branch deployed an advanced security system that is superior to conventional analog systems, as it offers better image quality, centralised management and maintenance, and superior scalability. This system uses HD network cameras on a broad scale to achieve high-quality surveillance.

Sony’s solutions

The network at the new office incorporates 500 HD network cameras, 200 SD network cameras, and Sony’s analog cameras deployed in elevators and other small spaces.

Sony’s SNC-CH140 Network HD Fixed Cameras, featuring wide dynamic range, are deployed at counters and in the consumer credit area, overseas services area, and ATM and safety deposit box areas. SNC-RH124 Network HD Rapid Dome Cameras are installed at the entrances, and SNC-DH140 Network HD Mini Dome cameras – featuring wide dynamic range and high sensitivity – are installed in offices and underground parking areas. Low-cost, compact SSC-N11 cameras are installed in elevators.

Results

Sony’s HD network cameras equipped with View-DR technology, featuring wide dynamic range and backlight compensation, deliver clear images in low-light and high-contrast areas. These cameras are equipped with a DEPA™ Advanced intelligent video and audio analytics capability, and include two-way audio, advanced audio detection, and voice alert – they quickly generate an alarm when detecting use of a forged bank card. Criminals may commit various illegal acts at ATM sites: stealing money; making money transfers; and damaging or destroying machines by hitting them, breaking them in half, or even digging them up. Sony’s cameras are very helpful in recording the details of these offenses both visually and audibly, in real time.
