The Image Capture extension product is designed to automatically capture images from CCTV cameras and any other type of camera available over a local network installed at your facility. Images are recorded at the point a weight is stored or when a transaction is completed, allowing you to verify transactional data.

Capturing more information from each transaction
Facility Product Suite Extension Product
Transactions can be verified, and queries or disputes resolved using the image and location details that are attached to each transaction.
Search based on ticket information
System users can search and identify images based on the ticket number, site, date, time or other information.
Transactional information containing the images is accessed via Transaction Search within the naus Platform ensuring information is accessible across your organisation.
Backup and security
The records are stored depending on settings on the naus Platform with all the backup and security the platform offers.
What information is captured?
Cameras installed at the weighbridge will take photographs of the vehicle involved in a transaction from one or many angles.
The date and time an image is captured will always be stored.
Cameras could be oriented to capture:
Vehicle registration details
Truck load contents
What are the features of Image Capture?
Weighbridge not required
The Image Capture module does not require a weighbridge to function.
Up to four cameras per weighbridge (or gate) are included in the standard subscription. [One subscription per weighbridge (or gate) is required.]
For a transaction that captures weights for both inbound and outbound, up to 8 images could be captured for the complete transaction (4 in and 4 out).
The Store and Print ticket functions will trigger the image capture. HotKeys are not configured for Image Capture.
Dual Weigh: Inbound image(s) are captured when the ‘Store’ button is selected.
Stored Tare or Final Weigh: Images(s) are captured when the ‘Print’ button is selected.
If you wish to capture images manually, Manual Image Capture and Image Capture Alerts are both available options.
Storage & Access
Images are stored and accessed via naus Transaction Search within the naus Platform.
Images will be stored for 7 years.
Images are attached to Corresponding Transaction
All cameras configured to a PC will generate an image and attach it to the corresponding transaction. Cameras cannot be isolated.
Transaction flows are not interrupted by the image capture function.
How do you access images & associated information?
Transaction Search is an easy-to-use ticketing search engine accessed within the naus Platform. This application allows users to quickly find a specific transaction or a set of transactions that relate to a customer, keyword, vehicle, ticket number, or date-range. Items are filtered by site and presented in an easy-to-use table format that allows for quick processing of key information.
What is Required?
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.
Contact the Mandalay Team for more information about how Image Capture can be used to benefit and enhance your facilities.
