IDIS Video Supports Mercedes-Benz Investment in Egypt

End-to-end IDIS solution, delivered by G4S, provides comprehensive coverage of showroom and warehouse facilities, with extended video storage

The IDIS DirectIP® solution included all cameras, recorders, VMS software and accessories needed, with instant compatibility and full functionality guaranteed. The system, comprising fixed and varifocal 2MP and 5MP bullet cameras and domes, was delivered in phases with the showroom system installed first, then expanded to cover the warehouse. The system is monitored live, with the license-free IDIS Center VMS giving operators easy control tools for efficient system management and viewing. Specific user permissions allow appropriate access for operators, senior managers, and system administrators.

For future flexibility, the VMS can be seamlessly upgraded to the IDIS Solutions Suite software, adding enterprise-level functionality but retaining the same user interface and easy controls. All IDIS technology and devices are forward-andbackward compatible, making system adaptations easy and eliminating the cost and waste of discontinued product dead-ends.

Sixty-day storage of data was required, to allow warehouse operations to be reviewed over extended periods, and IDIS’s advanced Intelligent Codec combined with H.264/ H.265 compression technology reduces the video data burden by approximately 60 percent, allowing footage to be retained more affordably.

IDIS has consistently encouraged video end-users to look for better value across their complete system lifecycles, and this project is a perfect example said Dennis Choi, General Manager, IDIS Middle East & Africa, “Customers should always factor in the burden of installing and integrating, operating, maintaining, and adapting solutions as needs change. This project for Mercedes-Benz is a clear demonstration of the benefits of this approach, showing IDIS’s true value offering in action.”

“IDIS has partnered with G4S for over a decade in the Middle East, to deliver advanced video solutions on projects from power stations to pharmaceuticals,” added Choi.
