2nd largest bank in France upgrades to digital recording
Societe Generale, the second largest bank in France recently deployed Grundig Security video surveillance equipment to help combat armed assaults that target ATMs and cash-in-transit vehicles. The bank upgraded each of its branches to a digital video recording solution, each with local and off-site recording capability, which amounted to 1,200 video recorders. It also added 2,000 hidden and external Grundig cameras at its branches, vehicles, and ATM points.

Societe Generale, the second largest bank in France recently deployed Grundig Security video surveillance equipment to help combat armed assaults that target ATMs and cash-in-transit vehicles. The bank upgraded each of its branches to a digital video recording solution, each with local and off-site recording capability, which amounted to 1,200 video recorders. It also added 2,000 hidden and external Grundig cameras at its branches, vehicles, and ATM points.

According to a recent survey by the National Observatory of Crime and Criminal Responses, such incidents have increased by 75-percent within the last 2 years. “Banks, cash-in-transit and cash handling providers are being targeted by criminals and this type of crime can often be violent,” explained Andre Molinengo, Alarm Monitoring Center Manager for Societe. Societe chose Grundig because its systems offered the level of security required, without compromising business operations, and due to its comprehensive understanding of the statutory requirements.

The external cameras operate effectively, day and night, in busy town and city environments. The cameras also provide privacy zones when used in residential areas. Each branch is centrally monitored, so remote access and multiple, simultaneous user operation is enabled. The bank implemented full HD video for evidential purposes, and by combining video and audio detection technologies operators could respond to incidents in real time, said Molinengo.
