When utilising weighbridge software with camera functionality, existing cameras can be utilised as long as they meet the minimum standard requirements. Alternatively, Mandalay can supply and install cameras.
Cameras will need to be made available on the same network as the POS terminal /device, maintain a static IP address and be accessible via a URL on the local network.
Connection to the cameras will be configured through the Facility Product Suite Hardware Layer to automatically capture images from all cameras and store these images in the cloud.
The following are minimum requirements needed to ensure compatibility with the Image Capture module:
Can request JPEG image via HTTP URL request.
The size of the image returned can be configured down to at least 1080 x 720 (720p).
The images returned can be in a compressed format so that image file size is no larger than 500kb.
Text overlay for easy identification of camera position.
Wide Dynamic Range.
Optical zoom or options for fixed focal length lenses rather than digital zooming. This will provide a better-quality image.
Mandalay currently supplies the AXIS Q16 series cameras for Image Capture needs.
