If you are looking for a new CCTV System an upgrade &/or additions to your existing system or just maintenance of your existing equipment then you’ve come to the right place. Come on in and take a look around, I’m sure we can help you
In today’s fast-moving world of technology its important that the correct technology is applied in all areas of business and CCTV is no exception. Many variants of IP Based solutions are available on the market today so it is critical for you that your integrator provides the correct advice
What is IP CCTV?
IP based cameras are the future. They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this data over a network or Internet connection. The key benefits of this over analogue CCTV systems are:
IP cameras can be installed on to existing Local Area Networks (LAN) Wide Area Networks (WAN) or be transmitted via the internet and/or using wireless technology. The images can then be managed for recording, storage & viewing almost anywhere within a network
Higher Quality Images
Whilst IP CCTV has been available for around 10 years, it is only in the last few years that the technology has matured, leading to the developments in Megapixel and High Definition (HD) technology. Take a look at some of our examples and see for yourself.
We are able to provide IP Based CCTV Solutions using the latest technology and recognized reliable brands such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Axis, Dallmeier& Milestone. Whether you wish to use ‘Open Architecture’ Video Management Systems (VMS) such as Milestone or more proprietary systems such as the Dallmeier, we will design the most appropriate solution for your needs.
We have recently upgraded a number of service stations’ CCTV Systems to IP technology Solutions. We have also been able to assist with budgeting for the future of the systems providing true ‘Hybrid Solutions which target those Higher Risk areas such as forecourts and cash handling area with HD 1080P cameras whilst maintaining (for the time being) some analogue cameras in lower risk or general surveillance areas.

With the advent of IP and Mega Pixel/HD technology, together with advanced video compression techniques, we can now comfortably incorporate IP based CCTV in to any education environment. The added advantage of high bandwidth fibre backbones, large numbers of low bandwidth IP cameras can be deployed around education facilities.

Some of our larger retail stores are now upgrading their analogue CCTV Solutions either to Full IP systems or (where there is already significant investment in analogue cameras) to true ‘Hybrid’ analogue /IP solutions. In one such case we transferred more than fifty analogue cameras from one site to the customer’s new development and enhanced the solution with ‘Hybrid’ recording and 1080P Full High Definition (HD) camera in those Higher Risk areas. We also future proofed the system be utilizing CAT5E, CAT6 and Fibrefor video transmission which will allow migration over to a fully integrated IP system in the future.

Video surveillance in car parks presents its own unique challenges. Achieving wide area coverage and obtaining registration numbers within the same image is now achievable. Take a look at the 5 Megapixel image below and see what can be done.
IP Technology in Carparks
Carparks do of course have obstacles such as pillars, posts and other vehicles so its extremely important to take in to account the ‘physical location’ of cameras to ensure the best possible coverage.
