Mobile DVR secures armoured trucks

CCTV Handbook 2009 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

With crime tactics becoming more diversified and intelligent, it is critical to use new technology to detect crime in armoured trucks in the banking industry. China Merchants Bank, one of the biggest state-owned commercial banks in China, has been using mobile surveillance products to guarantee the safety of its armoured trucks in Beijing.

The priority for armoured trucks is to have a mobile surveillance system that adopts high-performance anti-shock technology and can function normally while DC input fluctuates in different operational situations, in order to help ensure security for the armoured truck and the cash and people it carries.

After a thorough investigation the head office of China Merchants Bank decided to use DS-8003HM-12 Network Mobile DVRs from Hikvision in its armoured trucks.

The DS-8003HM-12 Network Mobile DVR is designed for mobile applications. It uses H.264 video compression technology to enhance efficiency of data processing and supports realtime viewing and playback with the resolution up to 4CIF. One of the highlights of the product is its power management capability which protects the devices against fluctuation of voltage – the voltage is lowered to 7 V when the vehicle is accelerating and rises above 16 V when it is braking. If the device did not allow a wide range of DC input, it would restart when the voltage was low. The DS-8003HM-12 DVR, with a power input range between 6 V and 36 V is a good mobile surveillance solution for critical security applications.

In addition, the anti-shock technology of DS-8003HM-12 DVR makes the product function normally when the vehicle is operating. The GPS module embedded in the DVR can help security staff locate the truck via an e-map on the client software. An alert signal can be sent to security personnel who are able to take the necessary actions when an emergency strikes.

Hikvision’s Mobile DVR has been providing surveillance and a secured environment for the armoured trucks of China Merchants Bank head office since 2006. Hikvision’s Mobile DVRs have also served in various transportation departments, including the City Bus Surveillance System, the City Police Command Vehicle Surveillance System and the Traffic Police Vehicle Surveillance System in major cities, such as Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xi’an.

Hikvision secures Burger King in UK

Burger King, one of the biggest worldwide fast food chains, has over 11 300 restaurants in 69 countries. In Glasgow, United Kingdom, approximately 90% of Burger King Restaurants are operated by independent franchisees in different locations. Ensuring the security of restaurants as well as offering unified management for this food chain, therefore, is critical for Burger King.

The priority in security for Burger King is to have a management platform that supports realtime viewing and high-definition retrieval in order to centrally manage the surveillance systems in different restaurants, keeping security staff in the surveillance centre up to speed on the security status in realtime. In addition, night surveillance is also crucial when there are no employees on site.

Burger King decided to use the DS-8000HCI Series DVRs from Hikvision. These new generation digital surveillance products have a maximum 16-channel video and audio input, with optional 12-channel, 8-channel and 4-channel inputs. Using the H.264 ACE (advanced code efficiency) video compression algorithm, the products offer high-definition video quality with the resolution up to 4CIF.
