Advanced video surveillance system for banks

High quality imaging, easy access to video recordings and low costs are clear benefits of IP video surveillance systems

“We had to adhere to our low-budget, but at the same time needed a high-quality image and stable solution with minimal maintenance demands. Our experience thus far indicates that the IP camera system solution was a very good choice.“ Josef Bílek, Head of IS Security, Equa bank.


Equa bank a.s. is a modern banking institution in the Czech Republic operating 12 branches with more than 50,000 clients. The company entered the Czech market in July 2011 after taking over Banco Popolare Česká republika, a. s. During reconstruction of 6 branches owned by the previous bank, management needed to resolve several video surveillance system issues. The existing analog camera monitoring system was unreliable and the bank needed to elaborate a user-friendly and reliable solution while keeping the cost as low as possible.


MC Systems & Services s.r.o, as one of the suppliers of bank security systems, decided to design a completely new system based on IP. Eight to twelve AXIS P3304 Network Dome Cameras with 1 MP resolution and WDR (wide dynamic range) were installed at each of the 6 branches. Camera recordings are stored at the branch in a compact NUOO Mini or NUOO Titan video management (NVR) network storage system, allowing the connection of up to 16 cameras.


The installed camera system provided Equa bank branches with an economical, user-friendly and simple video surveillance solution. Axis network cameras provide high-quality imaging with high resolution and wide dynamic range, and thanks to local NVR storage the capacity of the data network is not overloaded. Authorized personnel, either at the bank branch or at the bank headquarters, may easily access video recordings online at any time. Technicians may also perform remote maintenance or make minor corrections to the camera surveillance system via the network connection.
