VIVOTEK IP surveillance system deployed at Aceros del Toro steel plants across Mexico
VIVOTEK IP surveillance system deployed at Aceros del Toro steel plants across Mexico

Aceros Del Toro steel manufacturer With humble beginnings as a scrap collector in 1978, Aceros Del Toro has gone through many years of tempering to become one of the key steel manufacturers and providers, serving both Mexico and the United States. With a Mexico City service centre beginning operations in 1990, a Guadalajara distribution centre opening in 1992, and the commencement of manufacturing at plants in 2011 and 2012, this young and driven company has grown to become a market leader with branches in Mexico City, Guadalajara and Celaya. Since 2009, after achieving ISO 9000 certification, the company has diversified with a forklift and logistics division and is now expanding into further fields.  Upgrading surveillance to meet new standards Behind the rapid growth and solid performance of Aceros Del Toro is a philosophy of reliability and security, summed up concisely in their slogan, “stronger than steel is your trust.” Aceros Del Toro has always placed reliable service and impeccable quality assurance ahead of profit margins and continues to do so as the company grows. In today’s turbulent times, and with increasingly high international standards of security, Aceros Del Toro decided it was time to revolutionise its surveillance systems. Doing so would further ensure the reliability of Aceros Del Toro’s steel products and secure access to United States markets through compliance with the anti-terrorist C-TPAT protocol. The company required a system that offered around the clock centralised surveillance control and monitoring, and IP networking to facilitate total HD surveillance of Aceros Del Toro’s expansive manufacturing plants and offices. Mr. Cesareo Guajardo of Aceros Del Toro reached out to distributors Novalan Computadoras y Redes to see if such a system could be installed. The solution: A total surveillance system VIVOTEK has never shied away from a challenge, and quickly presented a design tailored to the requirements of Aceros Del Toro. Despite the large operating area, including both indoor and outdoor spaces, manufacturing areas, offices and surveillance booths, VIVOTEK was able to provide a full HD, long range IP network surveillance system which utilised only 40 IP network cameras. Each model was chosen specifically to meet the diverse surveillance demands found across Aceros Del Toro’s facilities. IP8335H bullet network cameras, installed throughout the office areas produced clear imagery no matter what the lighting condition IP8362 bullet network cameras For the outdoor zones of the facilities, 15 IP8362 bullet network cameras were installed in order to cover an area of more than two thousand square meters. The IP8362, with full HD resolution in 16:9 aspect ratio and WDR enhancement, provides crystal clear coverage in both the bright Mexican sun and through the darkness of the night. The rugged nature of the steel business combined with a high range of temperature fluctuation across the location of Aceros Del Toro’s facilities poses no challenge to the IP8362; its IP67-rated housing protects the camera body against rain and dust and ensures operation under all weather conditions. IP8335H bullet network cameras Office spaces throughout the facilities of Aceros Del Toro posed a further challenge as many were exposed to bright light, however 10 IP8335H bullet network cameras, installed strategically throughout the office areas proved more than capable of producing clear imagery no matter what the lighting condition. The IP8335H features an HD WDR CMOS sensor, and the resulting WDR Pro feature enables the camera to capture both the dark and bright parts of an image with double shutters, enabling two frames to be combined. FD8335H fixed dome cameras Completing the upgrade of Aceros Del Toro’s facilities, VIVOTEK’s FD8335H fixed dome cameras provided eyes in the sky at surveillance booths especially for their audio recording capability and compatibility with door-frame metal detectors. Two SD8313E speed dome network cameras, offering wide range coverage and high-resolution imagery were installed at external surveillance booths to monitor both access points and indoor facilities. The whole system was connected to VIVOTEK’s central management software- VAST IB8367 bullet network cameras Finally, two IB8367 bullet network cameras, providing 2MP easy and cost effective installation options for long range surveillance projects, and equipped with Smart IR, secured both the indoor and outdoor areas of Aceros Del Toro’s rental warehouse. Moreover, the footages of 8 channel network cameras have been recorded to VIVOTEK’s 8-CH standalone network video recorder- ND8321 and the whole system was connected to VIVOTEK’s central management software- VAST. In fact, Aceros Del Toro was so satisfied with the upgrade in surveillance provided by VIVOTEK and Novalan Computadoras y Redes that it has already commenced installation of further VIVOTEK IP cameras at several of its other facilities outside of the steel sector and is investigating surveillance options at other plants in Mexico and Guadalajara. Mr. Cesareo Guajardo of Aceros Del Toro, said, “We obtained the C-TPAT auditors approval, complied with the vision of a globalised monitoring centre and are satisfied with the quality of the cameras as well as with the design of the solution in general. For this reason we were requested to make a proposal for each of the plants as well as businesses not related to the steel industry. It was an excellent decision to acquire these top-notch systems –high quality, user friendly- and we want to replicate the experience in my other plants.”

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.
