VIVOTEK network surveillance cameras and Exacq video management software deployed at Prairie Hill School District
VIVOTEK network surveillance cameras and Exacq video management software deployed at Prairie Hill School District

The Prairie Hill School District is a gateway community on the North East state line. The District is part suburb and 100% committed to offering the finest instructional program in the area. It believes that an effective instructional program requires a school environment where student safety is top priority. To ensure the safety of its students, as well as staff, the Prairie Hill School District recently deployed VIVOTEK network surveillance cameras with Exacq video management software. While student safety is a main concern at the Prairie Hill School District, it is also important to create a friendly and open learning environment. With this in mind, the district was looking for an advanced surveillance system that could deliver clear and accurate image detail with fewer cameras installed as inconspicuously as possible. With the recommendation from Professional System, Inc., a local provider of technology services, including surveillance system design, installation, and services, Prairie Hill School District decided to deploy the VIVOTEK network cameras because of their superior image quality, resulting in significantly fewer cameras needed and providing overall surveillance success while maintaining a friendly school atmosphere. “After comparing solutions from multiple manufacturers, it quickly became clear that VIVOTEK meets all the requirements,” said William A. Burton, President of Professional System, Inc. “With a mixture of indoor and outdoor VIVOTEK cameras, we were able to create a complete surveillance system that not only provides safety to students and staff, but also help the school to catch and record conflicts and interactions between students during school activity, which helped the school administration to control and maintain peaceful activity.” A total of 196 VIVOTEK cameras ranging from 1 to 3 Megapixel resolution were installed throughout 8 campuses by Professional System Inc. in three installation phases to serve different surveillance needs. In phase one, a total of 74 VIVOTEK cameras were installed in interior and exterior areas throughout the main 3-story building for general surveillance, including 41 units of FE8171V, an outdoor vandal-proof fisheye camera with 360° field of view. FE8171Vs were mostly installed in the hallways and library because of their wide angle field of view which significantly reduce the amount of cameras needed for complete coverage. “One of the security concerns was monitoring incidents during break times when there were large amount of students moving between classes. Using a VIVOTEK FE8171V wide angle camera, we were able to capture a panoramic image that normally requires 2-3 IP cameras,” said William. “This installation not only resulted in significant savings to the school district, but also provided an open and friendly learning environment due to the discreet form factor of the camera housings.” "The VIVOTEK surveillancecameras help the schoolto catch and record conflictsand interactions betweenstudents during schoolactivity" During the 2nd installation phase, 60 VIVOTEK cameras were installed mostly on the exteriors of the remaining 7 campuses, including multiple units of SD8314E, an outdoor pan tilt camera with 18X optical zoom to monitor parking lots and other outdoor activities. With the 18X optical zoom capability, an administrator can easily zoom into a particular area of interest to record important data, for example, license plate details. After the completion of installing all the outdoor cameras, Professional System plans to kick off the final installation phase in August 2014 to install additional 62 VIVOTEK cameras in the interior areas throughout 7 campuses. The security team at the Prairie Hill School District seamlessly manages and monitors the recorded high definition video captured by VIVOTEK cameras using Exacq management software in the security office, with the surveillance video also being accessible by selected administrators, including the school Principal. The combination of VIVOTEK’s cameras with Exacq management software has proven to be a reliable enterprise surveillance system. “We were impressed with how well VIVOTEK’s cameras work with the Exacq software,” said William. “With the user-friendly features from Exacq and superior image quality from VIVOTEK cameras, we delivered the most ideal solution for our customer.” With student and staff safety a key priority at the Prairie Hill School District, the new VIVOTEK surveillance system offers the ability to keep everyone safe while maintaining an open educational atmosphere. “The VIVOTEK surveillance cameras help the school to catch and record conflicts and interactions between students during school activity; this is a very important piece to help the school to control and maintain peaceful activity,” said Julia Veazey, Director of Technology at the Prairie Hill School District. “We are very happy with the result and look forward to deploying more VIVOTEK cameras later this year to further enhance the level of security across the board.”

VIVOTEK IP CCTV system installed at Siam Paragon shopping centre in Thailand
VIVOTEK IP CCTV system installed at Siam Paragon shopping centre in Thailand

Siam Paragon, the eponymous shopping centre built by Siam Paragon Development Co. Ltd., opened its doors to the public in 2005. The complex was well received and has since enjoyed eight years of steady fanfare, enough time and growth to warrant a comprehensive CCTV system upgrade. Moving toward the Intelligence Overhauling the eight-year-old CCTV system involved a delicate process of replacing the original coaxial cable with a new UTP cable. Both systems had to be fully operational for the entire duration of the swap, running parallel to each other until the new cable was successfully in place. Only once the new CCTV system was completely installed could the old system be disengaged. Aside from the tricky hands-on aspect of the upgrade, time pressure further presented a twofold problem. First of all, the project had to be completed within four months. Even under normal circumstances that is a relatively tight deadline, but there was yet a second catch: work could only commence after shopping hours. When the Siam Paragon closed its doors for the night, a new wave of activity was set in motion on the inside. Thankfully the team was able to pull off the project in due time, and the migration to VIVOTEK’s new system proved fruitful. The project served as a testament to the nature of VIVOTEK’s clientele. The discerning customers in Thailand have an eye for quality, which was the only factor they had to consider given their flexible budget. They compared VIVOTEK products to those of the industry’s top 5 leading brands and decided on upgrading to VIVOTEK’s full IP CCTV system. VIVOTEK’s Supreme Series products come with an impressive host of features, including Full HD, WDR sensors, IR illuminators, and top of the line Day/Night cameras. For VIVOTEK’s distributor TSOLUTIONS, who won the bid for this project, the choice was obvious. Siam Paragon installed a total of 700 cameras ranging from five of our models: FD8161, FD8162, SD8362E, IP8362, and MD8562. TSOLUTIONS proposed VIVOTEK’s Supreme Series for this project to maximise customer benefit. VIVOTEK’s cameras, coupled with intelligent video system NVR, provide the option of full function analytics: People Counting evaluates the number of visitors per given period of time; Point-of-sales integration assists in Loss Prevention, allowing desired footage to be accessed almost instantaneously; Face Detection captures the face images and indexes them for easy investigation, should the need arise. Using this technology any suspicious activity or alarm triggering events can be analysed with ease. The integration of this system with VIVOTEK’s cameras not only provides great image quality, but also ensures that customers at Siam Paragon have a safe and secure shopping environment. Advanced security, enhanced safety After Siam Paragon migrated to the new IP CCTV system, the upgrade exceeded Mr. Wornphom Kerdniyom’s expectation. Wonphom, who is the BAS Manager of Siam Paragon, commented on the new system, “We can see major improvements in the image quality, especially during strong sunlight. The increase in resolution from D1 to Full HD is also remarkable, now we can get clear visuals of customers’ faces from 15 meters away.”" The system utilises a comprehensive networking design as a module, meaning there is no single point of failure, a brilliant safety feature to which Wonphom remarked, “the system comes with a brain that accurately triggers the alarm, and it does so right upon setup, it’s very intuitive. If we have an intruder entering a hot zone, the alarm is set off and our operators can respond in real time. Besides, we provide the back-up storage inside SD Card of the camera itself to ensure that in case of network congestion problem, we still got the video footage, together with NVR Failover system, when some NVR got problem, we can move that NVR to record in Failover Server Instead. We thank TSOLUTIONS that bring the great VIVOTEK IP CCTV system to Siam Paragon.” With the new system in place, Thailand’s top shopping center just got a little bit better.

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.
