Nuuo Success Story

Japanese Chemical Fiber Company Improves Data Center Performance with NUUO Crystal?

Chemical Fiber CompanyA?leading Japanese chemical fiber company was looking to upgrade their video recording systems in their data center building. The company has installed 120 surveillance cameras in key business areas such as server rooms, corridors, and parking lots for security. Video images are transmitted to the control center for real-time monitoring and also stored in network video recorders to allow for rapid access and search in the future. As the old recording system became obsolete and unable to fulfill the company’s growing needs, the company needed a solution featuring high performance and scalability.

One of the major considerations for the new recording system is high integration with the existing surveillance system. Support for a large number of channels and comprehensive management functions are also important requirements to meet the company’s needs for centralized recording and management. After comparing a variety of video recording systems, the company has decided to replace the existing recording system with NUUO Crystal?.

Three NUUO Crystal? NVRs have been installed in the offices of the client’s data center building to store image data from 120 cameras. Each NUUO Crystal? can record up to 64 megapixel footage at a remarkable recording throughput of 250 Mbps. Through the integrated interface which supports Japanese language, the client is able to manage recordings and camera settings centrally while performing many other advanced functions. The client is also impressed by NUUO Crystal?’s support for an unlimited number of video walls and video displays with up to 100 channels per monitor, allowing them to record and manage 120 channels simultaneously with ease.

After installing NUUO Crystal?, the client is able to manage a large amount of video data in a more efficient and cost-effective way. The client is very pleased with the results and is planning to introduce more NUUO systems to their new offices in the years to come.
