IT Gallery assists BIA in COVID 19 prevention efforts
IT Gallery Computers Private Limited, Sri Lanka together with Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co. Ltd, China, recently donated a Hikvision Temperature Screening Thermographic camera to the Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Ltd in an effort to help identify people with abnormal body temperatures. The donation took place at the chairman’s office of the airport premises with the participation of the Minister of Industrial Exports and Investment Promotion, Tourism and Aviation, Hon. Prasanna Ranathunga and Chairman of Airport and Aviation services, Retired Major General G.A Chandrasiri. Shortly after the donation, IT Gallery team finalized the process by installing the camera at the Premier Gateway of BIA.
Through this donation, IT Gallery expects to contribute to COVID 19 prevention efforts as this Thermographic camera is capable of identifying people with abnormal body temperatures, thereby allowing the airport authorities to take necessary action. IT Gallery also envisions this as a social responsibility to support the country at a time when this global pandemic is troubling the entire world. As a company which believes in disruptive technology, IT Gallery is always focused on empowering Sri Lanka by introducing world’s latest and leading technology solutions.
‘’As a socially responsible corporate, we are extending our support in this hour of need introducing latest technology solutions to help BIA. Safety of the people around us is of utmost importance right now as we are wading through tough times and we need to stay together and support each other if we are to overcome this. We take this moment to honor health officials, armed forces and other responsible authorities for their great commitment to keep the people safe while ensuring that the country moves forward. We are looking forward to carry out more similar sustainable initiatives”’’ said Dilantha Perera, CEO of IT Gallery.
This Thermographic camera is a full standalone solution that combines the storing of the video footage using a Network Video Recorder (NVR) and incorporates two lenses: thermal lens and optical lens. Thermal lens comes with a high sensitivity thermal module with 160×120 resolution and the optical lens has a 2688×1520, 4mp resolution with WDR and an IR distance of 40m. This particular camera is highly efficient when compared to a thermometer as it is capable of detecting the temperature of 30 individuals at once. There is also the possibility of seeing both the optical image and the thermal image on the same screen and the footage recorded with each individual’s face and the detected temperature are stored for further analysis. Thermographic camera offers a host of key benifits such as it takes only one second to detect skin temperature of a person and it uses a contact-free measurement which further optimizes security. Its in-built alarm system notifies as soon as it detects a person with abnormal temperature and its AI detection minimizes false alarms from other heat sources.
‘’Hikvision temperature screening solutions promise a high accuracy of 0.5C and are reliable and effective unlike the unbranded thermometers that do not guarantee an accuracy in their readings. Thermometers have their own disadvantages such as time consumption, manual procedure and are not effective for places with long queues. Hikvision temperature screening solutions come in as ideal replacements for thermometers and are easily deployable and fully automated. ’’ Dilantha further added.
Hikvision’s skin-surface temperature screening portfolio includes Thermographic Bullet cameras/ Turret cameras featuring AI detection coupled with Blackbody Calibrator to increase the accuracy from ±0.5°C to ±0.3°C and handheld cameras that can be connected to a PC or smartphone and walk through devices that cater to the multi-faceted customer needs. These products are suited for hospitals, schools, factories, supermarkets, shopping malls.
