Brazilian leisure club heightens guest safety and comfort on HD

Founded in 1960 in Sao Paulo, the Paineiras Morumby Club recently upgraded recently upgraded its outdoor parking lot video surveillance system to an IP-based video surveillance system, consisting of 13 VIVOTEK network cameras, to identify license plate numbers, perform event detection, people identification and crime prevention. The integration unit of local distributor Alca Network's, IP Extreme, implemented the project.

The Paineiras Morumby Club is a prestigious large-scale sports complex with facilities such as seven heated pools, 13 tennis courts, five squash courts, badminton courts, fitness center, soccer field, running track and more than 40 sport courses. The club has a highly selective membership screening process. After the inconvenience caused by the old and poor-quality cameras installed in its outdoor parking lot, the Club believed that the existed old surveillance system can no longer meet up with the club's expectation and the upgrade to IP surveillance with quality video was regarded as necessary.

The main purpose of the cameras installed in this project was the recording and monitoring of all entrances to the parking lot. Images of license plate numbers and some damages caused by cars when entering needed to be precisely captured and delivered to the security team of the Club. With this requirement in mind, the 1-megapixel HD network bullet camera was selected for use in challenging lighting conditions.

Equipped with the WDR feature, the camera is able to ensure the identification of persons or objects of interest under high-contrast lighting conditions—or when strong backlight, glare, or reflection is present—by capturing both the dark and bright parts of an image with double shutters, enabling two frames to be combined to generate a highly realistic image of the original scene. In addition, along with a removable IR-cut filter for D/N monitoring functionality and a P-iris lens. The camera's IP67-rated weatherproof housing can also resist damage caused by rain and dust, allowing it to be operated in outdoor areas.

 “The most notable difference between the club's old system and VIVOTEK's is the image quality and ease of operation,” said Bruno Zambrini, CEO of IP Extreme. “Previously, high-resolution images with clear details were impossible to capture with the Club's old cameras. This year, the Club will expand the use of VIVOTEK's camera to all areas of the Club."
