Arecont Vision provides megapixel cameras for bank applications

Megapixel cameras from Arecont Vision have helped bank applications    

Arecont Vision 2 and 3 megapixel cameras monitor teller transactions and keep watch on bank employees and customers in a proof-of-concept video surveillance system installed for Absa Group Limited, one of South Africa's largest financial services groups. Arecont Vision SurroundVideo 8 megapixel 180-degree and 360-degree panoramic cameras (AV8185 and AV8365) also watch over customer queues, automated teller machines (ATMs) and the general banking hall, delivering extreme image detail.

"There is a lot at stake in the banking environment, and megapixel imaging can vastly improve the performance of video surveillance systems in this important market," said Ethan Maxon, Middle East and Africa Regional Sales Manager of Arecont Vision. "Absa Bank has experienced these benefits first-hand."

Seeking to streamline its processes and reduce costs while maintaining a clear focus on the individual customer's experience, Absa Bank deployed Arecont Vision megapixel network cameras to leverage the greater system efficiencies, functionality and superior image quality of megapixel technology. The use of megapixel video enables a larger area to be covered with fewer cameras, which reduces overall system cost. Megapixel images also provide much more detail in playback mode for forensic investigations. Operators can zoom in to view specific parts of a larger image, such as a person's face. Another benefit for Absa Bank is creation of a database of suspected criminals to allow operators to identify them easily.

"Arecont Vision outperforms all the current competitors," said Alex De Barros of AV Enforce Electronics (AVEE) of South Africa, installer of the system. "The price compared to analogue cameras is better considering the fact that you gain so much. We were able to capture images for the bank that were never achieved before."
