Nascimento Construcao, a construction store located in the city of Caucaia do Alto in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, decided to update its analog surveillance system with network cameras. VIVOTEK's network cameras and wireless counterparts were chosen for this solution, with an initial total of 11 network cameras. All cameras were supplied by Alpha-Digi, VIVOTEK's Brazilian distributor. With the idea of using megapixel cameras in the security expansion and adopting the benefits of IP surveillance, Nascimento Constru??o also installed two VIVOTEK fixed cameras, boasting crystal-clear resolution of up to 2 megapixels.
Two-megapixel cameras were installed in environments where the high image definition is best utilized. Instead of installing a cumbersome amount of standard VGA cameras, two separate megapixel cameras are able to cover the entirety as the 2-megapixel sensor can offer a wide field of view with its 1,600 by 1,200 resolution. One network camera was installed at the rear of the store, giving a general view of the floor area, and the other camera was installed at the store entrance, guaranteeing a defined image of the customers entering and exiting the location.
The software for image recording utilized in this solution makes all cameras monitored from a central location. The solution allows for the e-PTZ feature to be utilized with megapixel cameras, making the surveillance system more dynamic and efficient and able to navigate an image with PTZ capabilities.
The Director of Nascimento Construcao was satisfied with the surveillance system, especially after the installation of the VIVOTEK megapixel cameras. "With megapixel cameras, I have detailed video of my costumers and product at a high resolution," he said. "I can now concentrate on setting higher goals and objectives for my store and achieve them with the peace of mind afforded by the new surveillance system."
