Nuremberg's Municipal Sewage Treatment Plant Uses EIZO IP Decoding Monitors for Wastewater Screening


When the screening system at the sewage treatment plant was due for renewal, the city of Nuremberg’s municipal sewage treatment plant, Urban Drainage and Environmental Analysis (SUN), decided to equip the site with the market leading EIZO IP decoding solution DuraVision FDF2711W-IP in customized splash-proof housing. This solution provides both plant operators and visitors a direct view of the brush unit during on-site tours, while securing the monitors from external damage.

The screening system used in the inflow of the wastewater treatment plant is equipped with a warning system, this serves to protect the plant from large objects entering the wastewater. Part of the warning system, among other controls, is a camera, and its images are transmitted to a central control room. Since the screening plant is a closed system, it is not possible to simply inspect them on site therefore, they needed to find a suitable decoding and monitor solution.


During his research, Lars Fenner, a technical employee at the City of Nuremberg, who works in the area of wastewater treatment process control technology, came across the EIZO IP decoder monitors. Lars Fenner has been looking after the video systems of the sewage works for several years. It was clear to him: "I was looking for a solution via TCP/IP. In the process, I discovered that not all video streams are the same and that the ONVIF standard still means nothing because every manufacturer understands and defines it differently. I was looking for a replacement for the decoders we had been using up to now. The new solution is able to display the H.264 video streams from different camera manufacturers throughout 24-hour operation. This total solution was found at EIZO.


"Apart from the excellent image quality, what I particularly like about the EIZO solution is that I only have one device with an integrated decoder with one housing, power supply, network connection, and that's it!" He adds further: "The test device that was provided to me by EIZO worked straight away and was absolutely self-explanatory. This convinced me completely and I therefore didn't look for any more alternatives."

A colleague of Lars, who personally edits his photos on an EIZO ColorEdge graphics monitor, is also convinced of the special quality of the EIZO IP decoder monitors: "EIZO is simply quality. It does what it's supposed to do. Did you expect anything else?"
