With over 166 years’ experience of seaports, ships and ferries, City Lines offer comfortable and safe sea transportation services to tourists and those who live and work in Istanbul. Over 150,000 passengers use City Lines services every day.

Having decided to offer a new ferry service between Istinye and Cubuklu, which are both part of the Istanbul conurbation but on different sides of the Bosphorus, City Lines asked security systems integrator InfoMET Technologies, to recommend video surveillance cameras which could help keep passengers and the ferries safe and secure. The cameras would be required to cope with sea conditions as well as capture high resolution images day or night.

250 Wisenet cameras have been installed throughout 20 City Lines ships. In addition to keeping a close eye on passengers, the cameras are also used to monitor the movement of 2,000 vehicles which are transported daily and are a valuable navigational tool for captains, as they enable them to view blind spots which cannot be seen from the bridge.

The majority of the 250 cameras installed are Wisenet QNO-7080Rs which are part of the Wisenet Q series. These 4 Megapixel bullet cameras have built-in IR illumination and are packed with innovative features such as H.265 compression and WiseStream, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression, according to movement in the image.

One of the biggest factors in choosing Wisenet cameras is they do not have any problems in the environments we operate.” said Cuneyt Danaci, IT Specialist for City Lines
