Chendu Imaging to provide campus card system for Chinese high school

Monday, February 8, 2010

The Dragon Capital Group announced that its subsidiary, Chendu Imaging, has partnered with Sichuan Sunbelt Culture Communication to construct a centralized card access and security system for a community high school located in Chengdu, Sichuan.

The proprietary campus card system will provide a range of functionalities to manage the various activities of faculty members and students on campus.


The campus card will be used as a debit card at campus cafeterias and stores, as a library card, and as an identification card for different levels of access throughout the campus.

The system will be fully integrated with Chendu Imaging’s proprietary surveillance system which provides for a direct uplink to China Mobile’s mobile network to enable full remote monitoring. [end]
