EverFocus upgrades Taipei City to IP surveillance

A new EverFocus IP surveillance system was installed to secure entrances, exits, hallways, parking lots, and the outdoor areas near the City Hall building.

Mission
Always attentive to technological innovation, Taipei City Government Hall, the government building located by Taipei City Hall metro station in Xinyi District, Taipei, decided to upgrade its video surveillance system from analog to network at the end of 2013.

A new IP surveillance system was designed to secure entrances, exits, hallways, parking lots, and the outdoor areas near the City Hall building. The new IP surveillance system provides Taipei City Government real time image and better image quality, and thus provides citizens a convenient and safe environment to visit.

Solution
WebChain Technology is responsible for providing the Taipei City Government building a new network camera surveillance security system. With network system planning, designing, constructing, and maintenance professions, WebChain Technology chose EverFocus' products to cater customer's needs.

3 EverFocus IP cameras are chosen in Taipei City Hall project. EDN3260 2 MP Full HD Network Indoor IR & WDR Dome Camera is mainly installed indoor for hall way monitoring, EZN3260 2 MPHD Outdoor IR & WDR Bullet Network Camera is installed at the entrances and exits, and EPN4220 2 MP True Day/Night Outdoor Network Speed Dome Camera are put outside of the building to protect the surrounding areas.

EDN3260 is a 2 MP HD network camera which delivers high definition image quality. EDN3260 optimizes the IRIS opening under all lighting conditions with motorized Vari-focal P-IRIS Lens. EDN3260 is suitable for indoor applications that require clear image details and WDR supported. EDN3260 conforms to ONVIF / PSIA for compatibility with other network video devices – even from other manufacturers. Users can also use EverFocus Mobile Applications to remotely view the live views of the cameras through your handheld devices; or use EverFocus CMS to remotely manage multiple IP devices connected on the network.

EZN3260 captures the most details in stunning HD quality, it supports multi-streaming in both H.264 and M-JPEG for various network conditions. It features a built-in slot for micro SDHC card, providing uninterrupted recording in case network is down. Power Over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) provides power to the camera via a single network cable, eliminating the need for power cables and greatly simplifying the installation. The EZN3260 supports motorized vari-focal auto IRIS lens and remote Zoom & Focus lens control via web browser. With IP66 waterproof rating, the EZN3260 is suitable to perform in moisture and various outdoor weather conditions that require superior image details. The EZN3260 conforms to industry ONVIF/PSIA standard, allowing great interoperability with a wide range of 3rd party network video devices.

EPN4220 is installed outdoor around the Taipei City Hall building. It is a high-performance, multi-stream, H.264 IP speed dome camera that provides MP HD image size at a frame rate of up to 30fps. With a built-in slot for a micro SDHC card, providing local recording when events trigger – EPN4220 conforms to ONVIF / PSIA for compatibility with other network video devices –even from other manufacturers. Functions such as exclusive masking, pan / tilt limits, tracking on patrol and flexible resume functions are all supported. The EPN series is designed for simple installation and supports all types of outdoor / indoor mounting applications.

Result
The existing analog camera in Taipei City Hall building has been converted to IP-based technology using EverFocus HD network cameras, allowing real time monitoring in public areas. The speed dome EPN4220 which is installed at the petition area supports dual streams, providing a two-way communication between the control room and citizens when there's a protesting event taking place.

The IR function of EverFocus cameras have allowed the video images of low light areas easier to be captured by the network cameras and send it to the control room, which is not feasible with analog system.

With the new IP-based surveillance system, Taipei City Hall now can sufficiently prevent crimes and obtain the recording data easily in the future.
