Megapixel solutions are a key trend in video surveillance. However, high I/O, huge capacity, and stability of the overall solution tend to be challenges for SIs.
Surveon's NVR2000 series is the only NVR on the market that has a built-in H/W RAID controller.
The simple and reliable megapixel solutions made possible by its excellent performance, 50TB capacity and lineup of enterprise megapixel cameras allowed Sunshine Information Co. to handle the Kainan University project quickly and make it a success for all parties involved.
Kainan University, founded in 2000, is the leading comprehensive college located in Taoyuan, Taiwan. It occupies an open area of nearly 17 hectares, and has 2500 students, 25 departments, 16 graduate schools and four master programs.
In the campus area of Kainan, the number of security guards was limited, and there were many places that were not being monitored. Traditional DVR solutions were no longer able to meet its surveillance needs, and Kainan University started looking for an advanced security system to tighten up campus security. As megapixel cameras offer up to four to six times the image quality provided by analog cameras, the school hoped to deploy complete megapixel surveillance solutions for the campus.
Megapixel solutions offer significant benefits for surveillance operations. However, the large number of megapixel cameras (up to 90) and the need for 60-day recordings presented many different issues for the SI, Sunshine Information Co, including the I/O performance of traditional NVR, stable integration of storage solutions and proven solutions that can assure end-to-end integration. To successfully deal with all these issues, Sunshine adopted Surveon's eminent end-to-end megapixel solution, including cameras, real-time VI engine, RAID NVR and enterprise VMS solutions.
"At the beginning, we had lots of concerns about the proprietor's needs for megapixel solutions. But by using Surveon's complete megapixel solutions, we were able to bring this project within budget, and provide the customer with extra functionality and extremely reliable RAID NVR without affecting our profits", said Jeff Lu, the product manager of Sunshine.
88 Surveon cameras, including 70 CAM4260 outdoor IP fixed domes, 10 CAM2201 IP box cameras and 8 CAM6180 outdoor speed domes have been installed for strategic monitoring of classrooms and hallways, as well as building entrances, pedestrian areas and campus grounds.

They make use of Surveon's video analytics functions to control recording. The facilities are split into three levels in an existing university building, with a dedicated 32-channel NVR2000 serving each level, each archiving up to 60 days of surveillance footage for associated cameras.
Surveon's H/W RAID NVR makes capturing, analysing, managing and searching video surveillance easier and faster. Its active VI detection has a preconfigured base for a number of scenarios, such as intrusion detection on the campus, examination of important gates or parking lot detection. The NVR distinguishes what's important from what is not, turning the raw surveillance videos into useful information. The recorded events are analysed and labeled with details such as time, date, direction, color and size of the objects, etc.
Upgrade security management for the customer
Surveon's solutions surpassed Kainan University's expectations for its new campus surveillance system. Surveon's solution is a truly megapixel solution with highly effective H/W RAID offering extraordinary recording and playback quality, and meeting the need for 60-day recording. Furthermore, Surveon's enterprise-grade intelligent VI transforms the previous passive monitoring mechanism into active detection and tracing; incidents such as theft or vandalism can be detected in time, enhancing the efficiency of security management.

Simplify project integration for the SI
With megapixel surveillance emerging as a key trend in the market, Sunshine Information Co. believe what system integrators truly need is highly integrated and certified solutions that can overcome the problems of storage capacity and efficiency.
"Surveon is the best available choice for this type of project due to its 100% in-house production and 3-year warranty", said Jeff Lu.
Surveon's all-in-one and highly integrated solutions, including megapixel cameras and intelligent 24TB hardware NVR, not only speed up project planning for SIs with high integration and stability, but also meet the need for immediate and full service support. Their integrated designs reduce maintenance and integration costs.
Jeff Lu continued, "The megapixel video quality and industrial grade designs of Surveon cameras were already very attractive to us. However, we were absolutely sold on the versatility of the CMS solution. We believed this type of setup was beyond our price range before being presented with Surveon's solutions."
