Kainan University, founded in 2000, is the leading comprehensive college
located in Taoyuan, Taiwan. It occupies an open area of nearly 17 hectares,
and has 2500 students, 25 departments, 16 graduate schools and four master
In the campus area of Kainan, the number of security guards was limited, and there were many places that were not being monitored. Traditional DVR solutions were no longer able to meet its surveillance needs, and Kainan University started looking for an advanced security system to tighten up campus security. As megapixel cameras offer up to four to six times the image quality provided by analog cameras, the school hoped to deploy complete megapixel surveillance solutions for the campus.
Megapixel solutions offer significant benefits for surveillance operations. However, the large number of megapixel cameras (up to 90) and the need for 60-day recordings presented many different issues for the system integrator, Sunshine Information Co, including the I/O performance of traditional NVR, stable integration of storage solutions and proven solutions that can assure end-to-end integration. To successfully deal with all these issues, Sunshine adopted Surveon’s eminent end-to-end megapixel solution, including cameras, real-time VI engine, RAID NVR and enterprise VMS solutions.
“At the beginning, we had lots of concerns about the proprietor’s needs for megapixel solutions. But by using Surveon’s complete megapixel solutions, we were able to bring this project within budget, and provide the customer with extra functionality and extremely reliable RAID NVR without affecting our profits” said Jeff Lu.
88 Surveon cameras, including 70 CAM4260 outdoor IP fixed
domes, 10 CAM2201 IP box cameras and 8 CAM6180 outdoor
speed domes have been installed for strategic monitoring
of classrooms and hallways, as well as building entrances,
pedestrian areas and campus grounds. They make use of
Surveon’s video analytics functions to control recording. The
facilities are split into three levels in an existing university
building, with a dedicated 32-channel NVR2000 serving each
level, each archiving up to 60 days of surveillance footage for
Surveon's H/W RAID NVR makes capturing, analyzing, managing
and searching video surveillance easier and faster. Its active VI
detection has a preconfigured base for a number of scenarios,
such as intrusion detection on the campus, examination of
important gates or parking lot detection. The NVR distinguishes
what’s important from what is not, turning the raw surveillance
videos into useful information. The recorded events are analyzed
and labeled with details such as time, date, direction, color and
size of the objects, etc.
