Sopraco, a Belgian corporate group, is one of Europe’s main meat suppliers. It supplies meat for wholesalers, supermarket chains, butchers, and the hospitality industry.
“We focus on maintaining the highest quality standards when it comes to meat quality, animal welfare, and food safety along the entire chain of production,” says Mark Ameloot, final responsible for ICT and technology within Sopraco.
In order to guarantee this, Sopraco uses cutting-edge technology to carry out quality control on its work processes. The group’s integrated slaughterhouse features three separate routes for calves, cattle, and pigs. Over 100 IP cameras supply video streams of the three slaughterhouse routes. Employees evaluate these live on monitors 24/7. Sopraco also uses the same technology to monitor the factory entrance, and thereby verifies the license plates of all vehicles that enter the company premises.
The group uses EIZO DuraVision FDF2304W-IP (23”) and FDF4627W-IP (46”) IP decoding monitors for this purpose.
“As we saw it, there were several reasons to choose the EIZO solution. Both of the IP decoding monitors feature excellent image displays. Moreover, operating them doesn’t require any computers, software, or other hardware that requires time-consuming update processes or might break down. This reduces the total cost of ownership for us. The network connection for both devices works quickly, inexpensively, and with little effort on our end. We also don’t have to establish a connection to the local video management system. We can even carry out camera management in a flexible way through the user-friendly Web interface during ongoing operations,” Ameloot explains. He adds: “Alongside the excellent product quality, we also appreciate EIZO’s outstanding customer service.”
