The CMT has over 200 units existing analog surveillance system in the factory and they have refurbished headquarter office and with existing network cable, L2+L3 switch can reduce overall infrastructure cost and can be easily managed. Meanwhile, facial identification is important for CMT due to over 10,000 employees work in the factory. According to the past experience, CMT realized it is difficult for D1 resolution analog camera to achieve the requirement.
As for remote site office management, video transmission bandwidth is main concern of system setup. ACTi IP cameras can adjust different frame rate, bit rate, video quality to be able to achieve bandwidth limitation for CMT IT dept. Eventually, 22units ACM-3411 Megapixel IP Fixed Dome Cameras, 7 units ACM-3511 Megapixel IP Fixed Dome Cameras, 13 units ACM-1231 Megapixel IP Bullet Cameras, and 4 units ACM-4001 IP Cube Cameras installed at office area and demo room with ACTi NVR Enterprise software. Phase 2 and 3 of installation will be started when refurbishing work done.
The unified solution from ACTi is another reason CMT adopted the solution. The stability, compatibility and the most important for single contact window to reduce time consuming if any possible critical issue happen. The entire system is deployed according to the highest standards to protect CMT’s valuable data and properties.
ACTi cameras provide megapixel picture quality which is easy to do the facial identification.
