VIVOTEK’s security surveillance solution deployed at Sama College, Iran
VIVOTEK’s security surveillance solution deployed at Sama College, Iran

Sama College has deployed high-performance security network cameras from VIVOTEK Background Founded in 2004, Sama Technical and Vocational Training College is affiliated with Islamic Azad University, one of Iran’s premier institutions of higher learning. As part of the University‘s branch spreads throughout the cities on the west side of Kermanshah, there has been a pressing need for the College to expand and enhance its infrastructure as rapidly as possible in order to satisfy the students, the faculty members, the staff and other stakeholders. This expansion has led Sama College to embark on a multi-year project to deploy and extend a surveillance solution provided by VIVOTEK. Solution Pouya Fara Negar (PFN), a highly esteemed distributor of VIVOTEK in Iran, has worked with system integrator Gostaresh Informatics to implement the project, which relies on a range of VIVOTEK cameras and its in-house ST7501 software. According to PFN, the project commenced at Sama College Building No. 1 in 2006 with the installation of a combination of VIVOTEK IP7131s and FD7132s. In later years, additional VIVOTEK cameras were deployed to extend the security system to Building No. 2. In the latest phase of the project, which rolled out over the past year or so, Sama College has extended the security system to the newly constructed Building No. 3 and a workshop facility, outfitting each with an ST7501 server along with high-performance network cameras from VIVOTEK, while strengthening the existing security system at Building No. 2. Cameras installed during this phase include the FD8134, the IP8332 and the SD8362E. Even at night, with IR illuminators effective up to 15M, the bullet camera guarantees superior image quality around the clock According to Sahar Hadian from PFN, the FD8134 is chosen for monitoring indoor areas, mainly hallways. With the 3-axis mechanical design for ceiling/wall mount installation, the compact, user-friendly fixed dome has always been a favourite among system integrators and installers. As for outdoor areas, the IP8332 is selected for large outdoor public spaces, such as student lounges, court yards and hangout spots on campus. Even at night, with IR illuminators effective up to 15M, the bullet camera guarantees superior image quality around the clock. Last, but not least, the SUPREME, full HD SD8362E plays a vital role in watching over the grounds around the buildings, as the 20x zoom lens enable the speed dome to capture sharp details at an extensive distance. The device also incorporates Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, allowing the device to be able to capture clear footages even under challenging lighting conditions. Customer Feedback Hadian indicates that excellent quality and reasonable cost are the reasons why the management members of Sama College have put trust in products from VIVOTEK. She also reports that their actual performance in operation, as well as the robustness of the ST7501 management, makes it an easy choice for the College to continue working with VIVOTEK for the remaining part of the project. Hadian notes that with the level of complexity and difficulty of this project, the fact that the decision makers at the College have maintained their favour of VIVOTEK products is a testament to the ability of VIVOTEK teams to satisfy the requirements of demanding applications.

VIVOTEK cameras ensure complete security and safety of India’s oldest library collection
VIVOTEK cameras ensure complete security and safety of India’s oldest library collection

116 VIVOTEK cameras were utilised to design the surveillance solution for the library Background Goa Central Library, located in the State of Goa, West of India, is the oldest library in the country. Since the Library opened its door in 1832, the facility has maintained a collection of nearly 200,000 books in Goa’s official language of Konkani, as well as many other languages. The book section carries Goan newspapers dating back 130 years as well as a collection of literature printed in Goa of the 17th century. The Library also houses a number of rare collections documenting Goa’s past as a Portuguese colony and other items of historical importance. Challenges While the Library owns many valuable items, its most recurrent security issue has been visitors thoughtlessly tearing pages out of books or otherwise damaging them. Lost and stolen books, disturbances resulting from loud conversations, and theft of stationery were other problems that administrators hoped an effective monitoring regime could help alleviate. Solution Goa Library’s facilities encompass a wide variety of environments – from dimly lit stacks with long narrow aisles to brightly illuminated reading rooms with broad unbroken spaces – posing a challenge for system integrators aiming to provide a robust surveillance solution while keeping administration simple. Ultimately, Reconnoitre Systems, in association with AUTOCOP, developed a solution adopting a total of 116 pieces of VIVOTEK cameras – 78 pieces of FD7131s, 30 pieces of SD8121s and eight SD7323 units, in addition to VIVOTEK in-house ST7501 software. Benefits The new surveillance solution offered greater coverage and excellent image quality VIVOTEK FD7131 is a fixed dome network camera designed for indoor surveillance. Its wide-angle vari-focus lens provides maximum coverage, while a sophisticated 3-axis mechanical design enables simple, flexible installations on either a ceiling or a wall. The FD7131 fields not only a rich feature set but also advanced technologies like a passive infrared sensor for motion detection and built-in white-light illuminators for situations where light levels are low. The FD7131 can even transmit dual streams of video at different resolutions, allowing simultaneous real-time viewing on separate devices—for example, on an on-site administrator’s PC and on a mobile phone, thanks to 3GPP support. VIVOTEK SD8121 speed dome network cameras, which are now in use at the Library, is like an icing on a cake to FD7131’s baseline of features by adding powerful 12x optical zoom, enabling administrators to obtain sharp details even at considerable distances. With sophisticated remote pan/tilt capabilities, the camera offers a full 360° pan and 90° tilt, controllable via a mouse or joystick, with up to 128 preset positions available for patrolling set-ups. Moreover, the SD8121 generates excellent image quality even in challenging lighting conditions, thanks to its Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology. When a camera attempts to capture footage in a high-contrast, backlight, glare or light-reflective environment, subjects may be unrecognizable. WDR compensates for the unbalanced lighting, restoring the details throughout the field of view. Furthermore, the implementation of an auto-iris lens allows the SD8121 to adapt to changing levels of light without intervention from an operator. VIVOTEK SD7323 is another high-performance speed dome network camera with a 35x zoom lens. In addition to going beyond the SD8121’s ability to obtain crisply detailed images from afar, the SD7323 features ground-breaking technology such as electronic image stabilization to mitigate the effect of vibration and other camera movement, and a 3D privacy mask that allows the Library to prevent designated areas in the field of view from being filmed, even when the remote PTZ functionality is used to pan, tilt or zoom the camera. Customer Feedback After deployment of the Library‘s new surveillance was completed in June 2011 came the real test: how would it perform in actual use? Fortunately, the system has not only met the Library‘s requirements, but surpassed expectations, bringing benefits like greater convenience to the staff, ability to monitor more of the Library‘s indoor environment than ever before, and excellent image quality far surpassing what Library had anticipated. According to VIVOTEK‘s valued partners, Reconnoitre Systems and AUTOCOP, the installation has helped the Library resolve security issues, calling VIVOTEK hardware and software "a great investment". The Curator of the State Central Library Goa is the Head of State Central Library and it is under the administrative control of Government of Goa, Directorate of Education.

VIVOTEK’s IP cameras and video recording solutions secure Al-Qusoor stores

VIVOTEK's IP7138 incorporates a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor and incorporates Compact Flash storageAl-Qusoor is one of Saudi Arabia's leading manufacturers and retailers of candy and other snack foods. Last year, at the recommendation of security solutions provider International Edaat, Al-Qusoor had VIVOTEK network security cameras installed at its main manufacturing complex in the city of Makkah. It was so pleased with the results that it subsequently adopted VIVOTEK cameras for security applications at its retail outlets.Demanding requirements met:Al-Qusoor was looking to upgrade the security infrastructure at its factory, which operates 24 hours a day. The company hoped to be able to effectively monitor the work of production staff, as well as secure valuable equipment and supplies at the site.According to International Edaat's Kamal Hamidoi, the Al-Qusoor manufacturing facility presented several challenges. Foremost was the open layout of the very expansive main production floor. Kamal explains: "To simplify management of the security system and stay within their budget, Al-Qusoor wanted to minimise the number of cameras installed."Therefore, Kamal recommended that Al-Qusoor use VIVOTEK's PZ7111, which can provide full coverage of large areas by drawing on its ability to pan 300 degrees and tilt 135 degrees, as well as its built-in motorised 10x optical zoom. For sensitive locations where very high-resolution video was desired, Kamal suggested VIVOTEK's IP7138, which incorporates a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor and incorporates Compact Flash storage, which can serve as a fail-safe for preserving video in case of network issues.Making it easy:"One of the great things about VIVOTEK's network cameras is how easy they are to install and manage," exclaims Kamal. He is particularly enthused about how easy it was to integrate the VIVOTEK hardware and software into Al-Qusoor's existing network. Administrators at Al-Qusoor marvelled at the ST7501 video recording application's sophisticated functionality and ease of use as well.Kamal says that another feature of both the VIVOTEK camera models that Al-Qusoor praises is their ability to provide simultaneous streams in both MJPEG and MPEG-4 formats. This feature allows video to be viewed from a variety of client devices, such as computers and mobile phones. Al-Qusoor managers and production foremen are taking advantage of the feature to monitor operations when off-site.Beyond expectations:With the new VIVOTEK-based security system in place at its manufacturing facility, Al-Qusoor soon began reaping its benefits not only in the enhanced effectiveness of its monitoring and security operations, but also in improved ease of use and reliability.In fact, Al-Qusoor was so delighted with the new setup that it decided to install VIVOTEK security cameras at its retail stores as well. It has since deployed more IP7138 cameras at these outlets, along with fixed-dome FD7131 models. Kamal concludes: "The VIVOTEK cameras have exceeded Al-Qusoor's expectations, so we are looking forward to providing them with more as their business expands."
