VIVOTEK PTZ dome network cameras secure Turkish Soil and Water Conservation Bureau
VIVOTEK PTZ dome network cameras secure Turkish Soil and Water Conservation Bureau

The Turkish Soil and Water Conservation Bureau The Turkish playwright and novelist, Mehmet Murat ildan once said “Sand is for fun; soil is for life.” Well, Mehmet’s respect for the natural resources of Turkey is shared by people of the Turkish Soil and Water Conservation Bureau, who work tirelessly to protect and preserve these vital natural treasures for future generations of Turkish people. The Bureau’s work is considered fundamental to the health and security of the great country of Turkey, as well as important for its ongoing development as a nation.   The challenge: Establishment of plant-monitoring office In 2015 the Turkish Soil and Water Conservation Bureau realised the need to provide surveillance and thus security to its office site. To fulfil this important task, the bureau decided to establish a purpose-built central monitoring office from which the entire area could be monitored and secured. The central monitoring office would face a serious challenge however as the office site broad open spaces not only needed to be covered in wide angle views, but individual areas of interest would also need to be studied closely and in fine detail. To make the challenge even greater, the office site outdoor areas were subject to high contrast lighting conditions during the day and very low light over nights. With these requirements in hand, the Bureau reached out to system integrators Fibercom and distributors ONCU to help them find the perfect surveillance system for their office site. The solution: VIVOTEK PTZ camera Fibercom and ONCU had a simple answer to this complex challenge – VIVOTEK. Having years of experience dealing with diverse surveillance demands, VIVOTEK has developed an impressive toolkit for any challenge. To provide both wide coverage and close detail, VIVOTEK developed the Panoramic PTZ solution, combining the wide range of a fisheye network camera and the high speed zoom and fine detail of a speed dome network camera. Panoramic PTZ combines these two unique cameras into one powerful, all-seeing surveillance system. At the monitoring station, this synergy was realised through the combination of the VIVOTEK FE8174V 5MP fisheye network camera and the VIVOTEK speed dome network camera SD8364E. Working in tandem, the two cameras allow users to simultaneously monitor an area overview from a fisheye model while providing the capability for a detailed regional view from a speed dome. The VIVOTEK megapixel fisheye camera provides 360° surround view without blind spots, while the VIVOTEK speed dome provides fast, precise pan/tilt/zoom movement through its robust design and captures details with precise quality from extreme distances. With this perfect pairing of hi-tech cameras, every inch of the office site could be tightly monitored and recorded.  VIVOTEK IP8365H with WDR Not only did the office site’s grounds need to be monitored both broadly and in fine detail, they also needed to be protected no matter what the lighting conditions, no matter what time of day or night. To provide superb image quality in any light, Fibercom and ONCU reached for VIVOTEK’s IP8365H Bullet Network Camera. The IP8365H features Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, which improves a camera's image quality under high-contrast lighting conditions where both dimly and brightly lit areas are present in the field of view. It enables the camera to capture details clearly in both the poorly and strongly illuminated areas of the video. Thus WDR allowed the monitoring office to view clear and vivid imagery even in the harshest glaring light. When the sun goes down on the plant, the IP8365H keeps working. A professional day/night camera, the IP8365H is armed with 30 meter IR and Smart IR technology which prevents overexposure by adjusting the IR lighting intensity instantaneously based on the changes of light in the ambient environment. To add to this, the camera is also equipped with 3D Noise Reduction Technology, which enables the IP8365H to capture clear, polished video under low-light conditions and reduce bandwidth from sensor noise.

VIVOTEK fisheye network cameras help Bialystok update municipal traffic monitoring system
VIVOTEK fisheye network cameras help Bialystok update municipal traffic monitoring system

Bialystok, a beautiful historic city of 300,000 in the northeast of Poland, is one of the nation’s major population centres. Devastated in World War II and languishing for a long period afterward, the city has seen a renaissance in recent years, with restoration of its beautiful architecture and modernisation of infrastructure as the Polish economy has boomed. One particular change that has come upon this serene city with unexpected rapidity is the increase in car ownership, which has more than tripled in Poland since 2005. Over the last decade, the growing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive traffic monitoring system has become increasingly apparent. Surveillance enhancement for traffic surges The growing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive traffic monitoring system has become increasingly apparent Cameras were the most costly item within the traditional traffic surveillance system originally deployed in Bialystok. To capture as many angles as possible, large numbers of cameras were required, often several at each intersection. As well as being an eyesore, this also meant that the cost of linking and synchronising the array of cameras to the central surveillance system was exorbitant. To avoid impacting traffic, which is heavy during the daylight hours, installation and construction work was usually carried out at night. The restricted hours for installation caused long delays in camera setups. Worse, the system itself no longer met the needs of the rapidly developing city. Despite the large numbers of cameras, the field of view of individual cameras was too narrow and when accidents happened it was difficult to try to piece together footage from several cameras in an attempt to reconstruct the incident. Often, there was no way to determine from the footage just who was at fault. A better solution was needed. Seamless collaboration to seamless implementation Zarzad Dróg Miejskich (ZDM), the municipal unit responsible for the road system in Bialystok needed to revamp, simplify, and upgrade their inefficient traffic camera system, so they worked with systems software manager Siemens and engaged VIVOTEK’s local distributor Suma Solutions to come up with an answer that would meet their needs. Siemens developed the system software around technology provided by VIVOTEK, a provider of IP surveillance solutions, offers dedicated traffic surveillance and management solutions, and has recently released its remarkable FE8174V H.264 5-megapixel fisheye network camera.The hemispherical images captured on camera can be automatically retooled to conventional projection specifications for easy viewing  The FE8174V is VIVOTEK’s fisheye network camera. This vandal-proof, WDR-enhanced, day/night camera features a detailed 5-megapixel resolution sensor with superior image quality. Its fisheye lens captures a 180° panoramic view when wall-mounted, and a stunning 360° surround view with no blind spots when mounted overhead. With its choice of display layouts—surround view, panoramic view, and regional view—it is the perfect solution for those who need coverage of wide, open areas as well as a high degree of flexibility. With the advanced image processing capabilities, the hemispherical images captured on camera can be automatically retooled to conventional projection specifications for easy viewing. As the camera’s primary application is outdoors and demands reliability in all conditions, a weather-proof IP66-rated and vandal-proof IK10-rated housing keeps the camera body clear of rain and dust and maintains functionality in all types of weather. The VIVOTEK FE8174V features a removable IR-cut filter, which is unquestionably the best choice for those who need a hardy, all-weather, 24/7 system with a full range of coverage. Enhanced resolution means better traffic safety ZDM installed 130 VIVOTEK FE8174V cameras at intersections throughout Bialystok. Now, with far fewer cameras, traffic controllers can get a clear, sharp overview of the whole field without any blind spots. VIVOTEK’s fisheye camera dewarping capabilities allow monitors to adopt different presentation modes A single VIVOTEK FE8174V provides the coverage of four outdoor bullet cameras in one image, and has resulted in cost savings at the same time as providing more complete coverage. Fewer cameras has also meant a decrease in costs associated with the backend management platform, network communications equipment, and storage equipment; it has also protected the aesthetic properties of the city by decluttering the skyline. Further, VIVOTEK’s fisheye camera dewarping capabilities allow monitors to adopt different presentation modes. Now, Management Center operators can easily monitor and verify traffic incidents and use the image recognition software to increase traffic control efficiency. The city of Bialystok has finally achieved a traffic management and surveillance system that can keep pace with its rapid growth while remaining in harmony with the local culture and architecture.

VIVOTEK delivers optimal security coverage at USS Midway Museum in San Diego, California
VIVOTEK delivers optimal security coverage at USS Midway Museum in San Diego, California

Decommissioned in San Diego, California, the USS Midway served from 1945 until 1992, as the longest-serving American aircraft carrier of the 20th century. The historic naval ship museum opened to the public for tours on June 10th, 2004, and receives 1,000,000 visitors annually. The USS Midway’s mission is to preserve, inspire, educate, and entertain visitors as well as serve as America’s living symbol of freedom. Video surveillance system Throughout USS Midway’s 47 years of service, the aircraft carrier played key roles in the Cold War, served with the Atlantic Fleet, was combat deployed in Vietnam as well as the Arabian Gulf for Desert Storm, and many other operations throughout the world. The aircraft carrier is home to flight simulators, a gift shop, café and a theatre, measures 1,001 feet long, and contains 18 decks. The large number of tourists, volunteers, and museum staff occupying the facility, along with the many events held on-board on any given day, make safety and surveillance a top concern for the museum’s Board of Directors. Earlier this year, Director of Safety and Security, Bill McClurg, with the full support of the CEO and the museum’s board, led a team of USS Midway department directors including information technology, finance, and operations, and launched a project designed to update and improve the museum’s existing video surveillance system. The process culminated in the selection of VIVOTEK’s valued partner, Layer3 Security Services, a systems integration company headquartered in San Diego that serves companies, government agencies and institutions throughout Southern California. Network cameras The new video surveillance system features dozens of VIVOTEK network cameras including fixed domes, box cameras, and Pan Tilt Zoom models. “There were many reasons for selecting VIVOTEK for this demanding application,” said Dario Santana, President of Layer3 Security Services. “These include the breadth of VIVOTEK’s product line, the high degree of integration with ExacqVision’s VMS platform, and the products’ superior price and performance. In the end, it only made sense to select VIVOTEK for the USS Midway upgrade,” concluded Dario. In the end, it only made sense to select VIVOTEK for the USS Midway upgrade" VIVOTEK’s FD8365HV and FD8338-HV fixed dome network cameras were also positioned in areas in need of surveillance. Both camera models are able to withstand inclement weather and the IP66 and IK10-rated housing protects the unit against acts of vandalism, making these units a great selection for installation aboard the aircraft carrier. A variety of camera models were chosen to monitor specific areas of the museum and surrounding areas. VIVOTEK’s FD8373-EHV fixed dome network cameras were installed throughout the premises due to the 3-megapixel wide dynamic range CMOS sensor’s excellent ability to adjust to challenging lighting conditions. The WDR Pro feature allows the camera to capture both the dark and bright areas of an image and combine the differences to generate a highly realistic representation of the original scene. Zooming capabilities Working closely with Layer3, Bill McClurg also chose SD8364E, speed dome network cameras for the zoom capabilities in parking lot as well as ship deck monitoring and IP8155HP, box network cameras. VIVOTEK’s SD8364E 1080p full HD resolution speed dome delivers superb image quality with its 30x optical zoom lens, perfect for monitoring wide open spaces. SD8364E’s IP67 and NEMA 4X-rated housing protects against rain, dust, and corrosion as well as operates under extreme weather conditions making it suitable for San Diego’s climate. The IP8155HP professional box network camera offers 1.3-megapixel resolution and WDR Pro II providing extreme visibility in high contrast environments. “Layer3 Security Services and VIVOTEK far exceeded our expectations with the installation of our new upgraded surveillance system. Layer3’s ability to translate our needs into a workable design and their recommendation of VIVOTEK’s superior yet efficient product line led to a successful deployment. Effective video surveillance on a museum, whose mission is to be, ‘America’s Living Symbol of Freedom,’ is an essential element in preserving it for generations to come,” said Bill McClurg, Safety Director.
