Toll stations built for fee collection are the key stopping spots, making them ideal for surveillance, as closer and clearer monitoring of vehicles can be performed.
PT Jasa Marga (Persero) was established in 1978 by the Indonesian government to build and maintain toll roads in the country. Jasa Marga now functions as a toll road operator and developer. Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road, a 73 kilometer-long toll road from East Jakarta to Cikampek, Karawang (West Java), has been under the administration of Jasa Marga since it opened in 1988. Earlier this year, Jasa Marga upgraded CCTV from the toll road’s analogue cameras.
After receiving consulting services from PT Hotware Indonesia, a CCTV products supplier and VIVOTEK’s official distributor in the Indonesia market, Jasa Marga decided to install 70 of VIVOTEK’s IP8335H 1-megapixel network bullet cameras outside toll stations for traffic monitoring.
Cameras that are installed outside of toll stations must be able to withstand harsh weather and cope with challenging light conditions while giving usable video. The IP8335H, designed with the WDR Pro function and a weather-proof IP67-rated housing, was the choice. With WDR Pro, even under high-contrast lighting the camera can deliver video of quality close to that of human vision the makers claim by capturing the dark and bright parts of an image with double shutters, enabling two frames to be combined to generate an image of the original scene.
With an IR-cut filter and built-in IR illuminators with coverage for up to 20 meters, the IP8335H can capture high-quality video at all hours. The IP8335H incorporates a P-iris lens, which controls the iris with precision using a built-in stepper motor, maintaining the aperture at an optimal size at all times, resulting in superior sharpness and depth of field.
William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK’s International Business Division, said: “VIVOTEK has accumulated quite a breadth of experience in transportation projects worldwide. We are delighted that PT Jasa Marga chose VIVOTEK’s cameras to complement the rest of its surveillance infrastructure. More importantly, thanks to our local partner PT Hotware Indonesia’s great support for and deep involvement with the entire project, the surveillance enhancements for the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road were completed smoothly and successfully.”
