delivered as a part of refurbishing works in 2008 soft and hardware products for the video surveillance system. This installation exist of seven MULTIEYE®NET recorders
, seven VideoCenter II
monitoring stations and all together 200 IP cameras, including 72 speed dome cameras.
Each 32 channel MULTIEYE®-NET recorder includes three TB data storage to store the data of 30 days. The installed fixed and domes cameras are from the Asian Manufacturer A-MTHK. As part of this project artec programmed and implemented special camera profiles into the software because the camera brand is not commonly used in Europe.
In the Central Monitoring Room 42" flat screen TV's are connected to each of the 7 MULTIEYE®-Net recorder. The Central Management Software Video Center II runs on local PC´s with a 17" monitor to show live pictures and to grant authorized personal the possibility to watch the recorded streams.
Beginning of November 2008 an artec technologies technician supervised and supported the installation of the system and trained the operators as well. On 6th of November the commission took place and the system was officially handed over to the operating company.

The installation in the Al Ain Mall was a mile stone for artec in this region. A very complex IP network video surveillance system was realized together with the local installer. The system sets very high performance requirements on the MULTIEYE®-NET recorder, especially through the large number of simultaneous client requests. To guarantee the performance on one side and leave buffer on the other side, artec did a special setup for the whole system which considered all the specific needs of the network cameras, MULTIEYE® recorders and the VideoCenter II monitoring stations.
The direct stream technology for storage and remote access of video streams (developed by artec technolgies ag) came to play successfully again.Project partners:
