CCTV Advantage

More and more businesses are moving to DIGITAL BASED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS over conventional analog VCR based systems. The Digital Video Surveillance System replaces the switching unit, multiple monitors and a time-lapse tape recorder with one centralized system, which can be accessed and controlled from several locations. Because the system is automated, there is no need to replace the old video cassette tapes which allows minimum intervention from the system controller.

Our Digital Video Surveillance System records video images on the hard drive, depending on capacity, for several weeks. The digital system allows the user to instantly retrieve relevant data without any recording interruption. There is no need for screening through hours of video tape to find a single frame of video. Data is stored digitally and can be searched by a specific camera, time, date, motion and more. This saves time in identifying the target.

Even at the most basic level digital video images are superior to video recorded on analog systems. Sharp, crisp images are stored which can be viewed over and over again without image deterioration.

Yet another advantage of digital systems is their flexibility of recording modes. Recording can be done by schedule (ie. time or date), alarm activation or via smart motion detection.

The Digital Surveillance CCTV System finally allows a remote access through the Internet. A designated person, through a secure connection, can access and monitor the surveillance system from anywhere in the world!

  • Faster retrieval times - No more screening through hours and hours of videotape. Utilizing digital CCTV, users can instantly retrieve video. Users can rapidly search events by time, date, location and camera.

  • Less storage space required - Users may set the system to record when motion or other pre-defined events are detected - so there’s no wasted "dead taping". Video is then compressed and efficiently stored to a PC’s hard drive.

  • Archiving - Important information can be archived to external HDD, CD-R or DVD for later retrieval.

  • Higher image quality - Digital CCTV provides unbeatable quality. Digital video can be easily enhanced and copied over and over without losing its original quality.

  • Better quality - Digital Video Recording provides much sharper better quality images to aid in evidence and image recognition.

  • No Tapes - with analog systems tapes need to be replaced regularly, but digital storage media has an almost unlimited lifetime.

  • Immune to noise - Digital systems are less affected by noise than analog systems.

  • Transmit and retrieve stored data - Across town or across the world, video images can be remotely viewed, easily saved, retrieved, displayed, copied, printed, faxed and e-mailed.

  • Less Obsolescence - Most systems’ software is upgradeable which extends the systems’ lifetime.

  • Maintenance Cost – Through the Internet connection, we are able to quickly log into the system and detect any malfunctions. The system maintenance can be performed the same way.
