ACTi IP cameras and Milestone XprotectEnterprise were successfully installed in Wodzislaw Slaski, in Poland's first IP surveillance project for city monitoring. The installer was SUMA, a Polish professional surveillance distributor in. This project was for improving safety of citizen and reducing defect of road offences with the development of this city.
Because of critical bandwidth and good video quality demand, SUMA chose ACTi products as the best solution to fulfill the city requirements. The city decided to use wireless technology due to the distance problem (from camera sites to the monitoring centre the distance is 300-1500m). However, the video quality should be as good as with an analogue solution. After managing and recording, the city officials are very happy with the deployment of ACTi IP cameras with Milestone software.
Moreover, ACTi MPEG-4 ASP compression technology can reduce the size of the recorded file. "Using ACTi products can reduce the requirements of disc spaces, which saves cost of storage size," said engineer Rafal Chmielewski, from SUMA.
There were 6 ACTi cameras installed in this project, which were IP speed domes (CAM-6610). Each ACTi IP camera worked well with wireless devices, so government officials are allowed to access the video under ID/ password authority everywhere.
