Vimicro International Corp., an image-processing integrated circuit and surveillance solution provider, and its partner, Zhongtianxin Science and Technology Co. Ltd., are providing the public security bureau of a large Chinese city with a surveillance video and audio coding solution under a contract valued at approximately $20 million.
The order for the SVAC-based video surveillance products and solutions from the Chinese city is the first phase of a major video-surveillance system, to be installed along highways, sidewalks and at key public facilities, according to Vimicro.
The SVAC equipment is to be deployed over the next two months, but the unnamed city’s government plans to implement a large-scale SVAC-based surveillance system over the next three years, Vimicro said.
The project will feature SVAC technology, which is a core standard for video surveillance in China, co-developed by Vimicro and China’s Ministry of Public Security, along with contributions from more than 40 scientific research institutes, universities and security-industry companies, the company said.
During the past two years, Vimicro has installed many SVAC test sites across China and recently completed a successful field-trial of the SVAC standard. “We are pleased to have been selected as the primary technology and solution provider for this major video-surveillance system in a large Chinese city, said John Deng, Vimicro’s chairman and chief executive officer.
The latest deployment of Vimicro’s SVAC solution represents the first major citywide surveillance system employing our national SVAC technology standard, Deng added.
