Bosch Korea Installs ioimage Intelligent Video Appliances
ioimage, a provider of intelligent video appliances, has announced that its products have been installed at Bosch Korea's automotive motor plant in Buyong (RBKB).
RBKB is a leading Korean domestic automotive motor and system supplier, wholly-owned by the Bosch Group since 1998. The company has annual sales of approximately $255 million and produces about 29 million automotive motors per annum.
The RBKB plant was retrofitted with ioimage intelligent video encoders with built-in self-sustained video analytics, providing automatic autonomous Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) and trespassing applications. Self-directed, vision-guided PTZ tracking capabilities keep a moving target in constant focus, offering numerous identification and information-gathering possibilities. The system can be rapidly configured to detect fence-jumpers and security breaches - both incoming and outgoing activity - along the facility’s entire 90,000 sqm perimeter fence.
“ioimage’s solution outranks the competition when it comes to key parameters such as performance, cost effectiveness, customer satisfaction and low false alarm rate,” said Jung Dong Young of Samsung Aerospace Information Co. Ltd., who installed the system in collaboration with local ioimage partner G2 Solomon Co. Ltd., ioimage’s local business partner and distributer.
The ioimage system has enhanced the effectiveness of guards monitoring the plant and at the same time alleviated their workload. A spokesperson for RBKB’s management team commented: “Knowing that we have the best video surveillance system on the market protecting us against intruders gives us real peace of mind.”
“More and more companies worldwide are realizing how simple and cost-effective it is to retrofit their site with video analytics,” said Maoz Tenenbaum, ioimage Senior Sales Director, Asia Pacific. “With its reputation for easy installation and maintenance, and true video analytics, ioimage is their natural choice.”
Further ioimage installations are planned at other Bosch subsidiary factories in Korea.
