Redeployable CCTV Systems across Northern Ireland provide highly-effective temporary surveillance coverage to assist in the reduction of crime, vandalism, fly tipping and anti-social behaviour.
One of the main challenges of converting analogue systems to HD is the variety of platforms which are found in older coax systems. Integrating IP cameras can be a difficulty with an existing cabled system. Not all DVRs suit all the difference platforms and it is important to find the right recording device, however configuring it can be another struggle.
The Ultra and Pro DVRs offer Penta-brid compatibility and deliver a streamlined, open-source recording solution and explore five additional reasons to embrace the newest additions to the HDCVI 3.0 group.
Many organisations consider implementing new video surveillance systems or even upgrading their outdated systems to make use of the recent technical improvements. There is a wide variety of security threats which businesses and other facilities have to face including theft by employees or visitors, violence, threats from outsiders and many other types of crimes. Each installation presents a unique coverage challenge in order to ensure that cameras are capable of providing useful images across all possible areas which require coverage. Multi sensor panoramic cameras provide many different benefits which can help organisations meet any unique challenges.

Small and medium businesses (SMBs) are an area of opportunity for security resellers, especially in video surveillance.
Surveillance systems for SMBs are more straightforward than for larger companies, however no matter how many employees or buildings there is, each successful installation would start with designing a system which is appropriate for the business.
Surveillance systems which cover the extent of your facility are crucial in order to protect your assets and provide extremely important business data. Cameras are the foundation of any surveillance system and for the highest functionality it is important to provide the most camera coverage that is possible. This however, doesn’t require a higher camera count. It is important to consider the value of each individual camera and performance which it delivers, when looking at the density requirements of your camera installation. Businesses require security systems which perform to the highest of standards, therefore these cameras must have the resolution which would recognise faces and license plates, read numbers well and observe customer activity. Standard cameras provide 300,000 pixels per camera, while megapixel cameras provide atleast 1.3 million pixels per camera. Multi-sensor cameras have the ability to provide up to about 16 million pixels by combining several imaging sensors, therefore they can cover a greater distance while delivering higher performance and more capability, requiring lower camera densities to be built into the systems.
What is WDR?
A dynamic range is the the ratio between the largest and smallest measurable quantities of something. In the case of video surveillance, the dynamic range is the ratio between the lightest and darkest elements of the image. WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology is great for high contrast scenes, which balances the brightness and shaded areas simultaneously so that an image doesn’t appear blown out or too dark.
Decibels (dB) are the value in which dynamic range is measured. IHS defines WDR at 60 dB or greater, though it’s not uncommon to see WDR cameras with capabilities of 120 dB or more. While comparing product datasheets, it is possible that a camera with a lower ratio outperforms a competitor with a higher dB ratio. Read more
