- CCTV, the short form for Closed Circuit Television, is a Television system that sends a signal to one or more monitors rather than broadcasting over a public network, hence “closed circuit.” A standard CCTV system normally includes a CCTV camera for capturing video, transmitters and receivers (to transfer the video from the source to where it is recorded), a recording system (for video playback), and a monitor (for video monitoring).
- You get considerable amount of cost savings by being able to monitor multiple sites from one location. With IP CCTV, you can monitor up to 32 cameras on two screens with a single camera at a time, and respond to events in real-time without having to perform multiple patrols.
- Yes. CCTV use in the UK is covered by the Data Protection Act if it is used to gather information about an individual; is monitored remotely; or is given to people other than law enforcement authorities. If CCTV use falls under the ambit of the DPA, then the employer would need at least signage, and a policy for the retention of data. However, these restrictions do not come in the way of us providing CCTV Monitoring service to our clients.
- The limits of CCTV are extended according to increasing needs. Originally installed to thwart burglary, assault, and car theft, in practice most camera systems have been used to combat anti-social and disorderly behavior such as littering, urinating in public, eve teasing, traffic violations, obstruction, drunkenness, and evading meters in town parking slots. The clarity of the pictures is often excellent, with many systems being able to recognize a cigarette packet at a hundred meters. The systems can work in pitch-blackness, bringing images up to daylight level.
- No. Our service is available to global clients. However, we focus in the UK because Britain is clearly the lead nation in implementing CCTV.
- You are assured of foolproof service including the following: monitor multiple sites from one location, almost no limitations on where you can place cameras, remote accessibility, fantastic picture quality, retrieve information immediately, and playback of recorded information.
