Deployment of Axis network cameras helps to optimize production
From four simple cameras to a robust solution at ZAMPRA
“Since the launch of the camera system, there has been a demonstrable increase in production quality, growth in productivity and a reduction in work injuries and unreported absences in the workplace.” Tomáš Dřízga, Material Purchasing Manager at Zampra.
At the beginning of the project, there was a requirement for a simple analog camera system to monitor a hired property. The individual terms included simplicity of operation, system clarity, easy allocation of user rights, the fastest possible searching for records, easy installation and low requirements for further infrastructure.
A small camera system was designed with a total number of just four camera points, but with the option of prospective expansion in years to come. ZAMPRA did not have a clear idea whether to choose a cheaper analog or more expensive IP version of a camera system. Eventually, the system integrator and Axis partner, TINT, chose the IP option in the form of Axis network cameras. In the end, the foresight in deploying IP cameras from Axis enabled fast expansion of the system in the period of subsequent great corporate expansion.
The start of the system dates back to 2009, when the integrator deployed the first four IP cameras, namely AXIS 209FD Network Cameras. Today, ZAMPRA uses 45 cameras, which considerably facilitate the acquisition of evidence to prove criminal activities or accidents due to infringements of safety at work. Furthermore, the digital camera system enables monitoring of yield in production and the observance of production processes. Since the launch of the camera system, there has been a demonstrable increase in production quality, growth in production and a reduction in work injuries and unreported absences in the workplace. So far, the camera system works independently, but for the future, connection with other systems is being considered.
