Live broadcast of polar bears at Shizuoka Municipal Nihondaira Zoo

Providing clear live images of moving subjects with outdoor-ready PTZ dome network cameras

Initially, there were arguments both for and against the plan to broadcast live online images of the polar bears. Once the equipment was actually installed, however, we received wonderful feedback from both inside and outside the zoo, and many favorable comments through social media.“ Mr. Takuya Hashiguchi, Manager of Nihondaira Zoo.


In a bid to promote the attractions of its newly refurbished zoo, the Shizuoka Municipal Nihondaira Zoo is utilizing live video streaming of the polar bears in Wild Animal House 299 and is eager to have as many people as possible view the lively images of its polar bears.


The introduction of a high-definition PTZ dome network camera, which is not only capable of withstanding all kinds of outdoor environments but is also easy to install, was the primary solution. The polar bears in Wild Animal House 299, the subjects of the video streaming, are among the zoo’s most popular animals.


The project turned into a program that can be enjoyed by both visitors to Nihondaira Zoo and persons unable to make a direct visit by offering participatory content through social media via multi-stream images.
