Simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams, a comprehensive set of network security features and two-way audio support increase the surveillance and monitoring options

Techmedia uses these cameras to monitor passage data and to send these data to Techmedia’s remote servers which collect and prepare passage data for further analysis. Our People Counter program proved successful in one of the most visited shopping centers in this part of the Europe – Usce shopping center.

Numerous cameras have been installed in Usce Shopping Center, automatically and constantly collecting and sending the passage data to Techmedia’s remote server, where these data are processed and prepared for Usce Shopping Center management analysis. Usce Shopping Center management always has a clear picture and full insight in the number of visitors who pass through every vital point in the Shopping Center.
