The Solution: VIVOTEK – Being Smart Doesn't Mean You Can't be Tough
VIVOTEK produces a wide range of IP cameras and often will work with system integrators to find a number of different cameras to match the requirements of the end user, but in this case VIVOTEK had one single camera that was built for job. The VIVOTEK MD7560 Fixed Dome Network Camera is custom designed and manufactured to provide the highest quality video and audio surveillance while sitting encased in a vandal-proof shell that protects it from the roughest treatment and the most extreme weather.
A total of 500 MD7560 Fixed Dome Network Cameras were mounted on both the front and rear of the fire engines of the Istanbul Fire Brigade. The compact 2 mega-pixel camera is equipped with a wide-angle fixed lens, producing broad coverage of the busy streets and buildings of Istanbul. By utilizing high definition 1600x1200 resolution, the MD7560 can deliver extremely clear and detailed images. This means that while attending to a fire, if any event takes place that needs to be analyzed later, the footage can be used as forensic evidence. To add to this, the MD7560 can provide crystal clear two-way audio, enabling rapid communication between members of the fire crew in situations when every second counts.
But what really set the MD7560 apart from its competitors and made it the perfect camera for the Istanbul Fire Brigade was its ability to deal with the most extreme operating conditions. With full EN50155 compliance & IP67-rated design, the MD7560 can withstand shock, vibration, humidity, dust, and temperature fluctuations, maintaining stable and reliable video during even the most jarring vehicle movement. Furthermore, the vandal-proof metal housing delivers robust protection from vandalism. As such, the combination of high-resolution imaging and protective housing endows the MD7560 with the perfect combination of features to serve the Istanbul Fire Brigade, who can now rest assured that their crew and trucks will be protected – leaving them free to invest all of their energy on serving and protecting the 14.4 million people of Istanbul.
