CCTV has been around since 1942. However, until relatively recently low resolution and grainy images mean it has been of limited capability. It is only since digitisation started to change the industry in 1997 that CCTV began to evolve to become the powerful security tool that it is today.
The latest generation of HD CCTV cameras and associated video recording, storage and software analytics solutions make CCTV the most potent element in any integrated solution designed for protecting people, property and places.
HD CCTV installation with PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) capability enables sophisticated monitoring in real time. HD CCTV imaging that is stored on Network Video Recorders (NVR) can be instantly analysed by software that has been configured to identify actions which break security policies. CCTV monitoring staff can be alerted automatically by the software.
