Banking on Bank

September 2011 Surveillance, Financial (Industry)

The Dallmeier recorder series Bank receives DGUV Test certificate for use with IP and HD cameras.

Especially for universal banks and savings banks reliable video surveillance systems are indispensable these days. Robberies, burglaries, cheque card fraud at ATMs or vandalism require swift reactions. Very often, video recordings are the only way to get on to the perpetrators. With the recorder range ‘Bank’ Dallmeier has developed a series of digital recording systems whose certifications and specific system parameters make them ideal for bank applications.

The VideoNetBox Bank as well as the DMS recorders of the Bank series are also certified for use with IP cameras according to DGUV Test. It is therefore now possible to also use HD cameras in banks. “HD cameras provide better image quality, which is especially advantageous with overview cameras. The circumstances of a robbery can thus be reconstructed more clearly and staff can be better protected,” explains bank expert Armin Biersack, manager Application Engineering at Dallmeier. “Additionally, if HD cameras are used, it is possible to reduce the number of cameras necessary, which in turn means that infrastructure requirements are lower.”

The certificate ‘DGUV Test’ (formerly UVV-Kassen) guarantees a high-quality standard of digital recording systems for the use in banks and financial institutions. Various requirements have to be met for the DGUV Test certification, eg, pictures cannot be deleted or overwritten unintentionally, it has to be guaranteed that nobody unauthorised can view or change pictures and the system has to provide the opportunity to export pictures to ensure that after a hold up the police are able to save pictures immediately and without any loss.

A highlight of the Bank recorders, which has proven itself in practice many times, is the ATM activity survey where the recorder regularly checks if transactions take place at the ATM. The survey intervals can be set individually. If no transactions take place during the defined interval the recorder issues a warning. This is done so as to prevent an accidental recording failure and to make sure that it does not go unnoticed if it happens. Such failures frequently occur due to changes of ATM protocols. The ATM activity survey ensures that, in case of need, no important data is missing.
