|VIVOTEK cameras with superior image quality and performance ensure safety and security in Zamin Bank|
The Iran Zamin Bank in Iran’s capital city, Tehran, is a non-government owned bank that was established in 2011. The bank takes pride in providing its customers with first-rate services and ensuring a safe and comfortable banking environment. The security system, equipped with some of VIVOTEK’s finest cameras, is just one testament to how much the bank values its clientele. Having entered the financial industry in the last decade, Iran Zamin Bank has the major advantage of keeping abreast of technological advancements, and is thus able to present new and distinguished services to its clients. Iran Zamin Bank, along with other Iran banks, plays a significant role in leading the nation’s economy forward.
From analogue to IP
Due to the high degree of sensitivity a bank surveillance system demands, Iran Zamin Bank decided early on to replace several of their analogue cameras with IP options. The low image quality of analogue presents potential security issues, especially when finely detailed analyses of video images are required, which may be the case in a bank branch setting. Additionally, the standardisation solutions of analogue cameras are deficient. The alternative, IP cameras, is not only much easier to operate, but also boasts solution credibility that far exceeds analogue. Considering these factors, the manager of Iran Zamin Bank decided to exchange the analogue cameras with the several digital IP cameras. The move was quite well received, as technological improvements via VIVOTEK eventually spread to every branch.
Enhanced security inside and outside
Having already decided on an IP-based solution to bolster infrastructure, the next order of business was to weigh out the options. The manager of Iran Zamin Bank, in preparation for the security and surveillance system migration in all Iran Zamin Bank branches, began scouting for hardware and consulted with Prooya Fara Negar (PFN) Technology, VIVOTEK’s local distributor. With superior quality and a competitive price, VIVOTEK cameras proved to be their first choice. Once the decision was made, the PNR-C032R NVR model was promptly installed in all branches, providing much needed recording storage. The professional storage device has a 12 terabyte HDD storage capacity and comes with VIVOTEK ST7501 software. As instalments of the PNR-C032R model were under way branch wide, plans to put in various other VIVOTEK models were also in the making.
VIVOTEK cameras with superior
The FD8135H was another model employed in all four branches, specifically for monitoring indoor areas. With one-megapixel resolution, night visibility and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, the device can capture clear footage even when both bright and dark areas are present in the same field of view. Another addition to each branch was the FD8162. It has the capacity to capture sharp details of people coming and going through the bank’s main entrances. This 2-megapixel powerful camera also performs particularly well indoors; equipped with the WDR Enhancement technology feature, this camera ensures security through clarity, and a PNR-C064R NVR was installed for more storage. This model comes with 36 terabytes of HDD storage, plenty of space to record and store all that goes on in the bank. Moving to the exterior of the bank, the FD8372 camera, with 5-Megapixel or Full HD resolution at a superb video streaming up to 30 fps, was used for outdoor areas of the branches.
When it came to the central building of the bank and its branches, still other VIVOTEK cameras were selected, including the FD8335H. Twenty units of this camera were installed to monitor parking lots and different floors within the branches. The IP8335H with the IP67-rated weatherproof housing, one-Megapixel resolution, and night visibility was therefore strategically positioned outdoors.
Reliable surveillance strengthens the protection
William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK’s International Business Division, stated: “It’s great that we participated in the surveillance upgrade project of Iran Zamin Bank. As we know, the reliable security infrastructure in bank is important since it can not only act as the deterrent, but also provide the post-event footage as undisputable evidence. VIVOTEK cameras with superior image quality and performance are undoubtedly the ideal choices, fully cementing the safety and security in Zamin Bank.”
