A bank in China was founded in May, 1997, which is the first local share-holding commercial bank in the central area of China. Confronted with all kinds of opportunities and challenges, it has been devoted to the development of market-orientation, localization, shareholding diversification, capitalization and globalization. It is characterized as “government’s bank, medium-and-small-sized enterprises’ bank, and citizens’ bank”. By the end of 2010, its capital has reached 754 million RMB, with 32 subordinate branches, 57 operational networks and 1695 employees.
It has a running CCTV system for most of the gates however in 2010 a bank robbery was happened in one of the branch sites. When they tried to find out the mugger from the video which was taking by the analog system, they found that the video quality of the analog system is too poor to identify the face of the mugger. Although mugger was under arrest in 2011, the central government in china decided to obtain megapixel cameras in order to replace the analog ones at the entrance and lobby. In comparing with many brands of cameras, they chose ACTi KCM-5111 to monitor the entrance and lobby, because ACTi KCM-5111 has 4-megapixel image that can easily to obtain facial detection and car plate identification.
ACTi cameras provide 4-megapixel video quality which is easy to obtain facial detection and car plate identification at the entrance and lobby, and the wide angle image also can cover about 4 counters of the lobby. No blind side surveillance is provided to this bank.
The chief of security department of the bank said, “Many thanks for ACTi to provide such a good solution for us, it is obviously safer since we installed ACTi KCM-5111 with 4-megapixel image and wide viewing angle, no one would have illegal attempts under the surveillance environment!”
