Installation of Uniview Cameras
In today’s fast-moving world of technology, it’s 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 Uniview IP CCTV?
Uniview 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 Uniview 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.
IP System Design
At Uniview Camera Installations we are able to provide IP Based CCTV Solutions using the latest technology and recognised reliable brands such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Hikvision, Dallmeier & Qvis. Whether you wish to use ‘Open Architecture’ Video Management Systems (VMS) such as Uniview Camera Installations or more proprietary systems such as the Dallmeier, Uniview Camera Installations will design the most appropriate solution for your needs.
IP Technology in Service Stations
Also, Uniview Camera Installations have recently upgraded a number of service stations’ CCTV Systems to IP technology Solutions. Uniview Camera Installations 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.
The UK education facilities are well known for their Multi – Building layouts over large areas which traditionally made it extremely difficult to deploy an analogue CCTV Solution. With the advent of IP and Mega Pixel/HD technology, together with advanced video compression techniques, we can now comfortably incorporate IP based CCTV into any educational environment. The added advantage of high bandwidth fibre backbones, large numbers of low bandwidth IP cameras can be deployed around education facilities.
Uniview IP Technology in Retail
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. Uniview Camera Installations also future-proofed the system be utilising CAT5E, CAT6, and Fibre for video transmission which will allow migration over to a fully integrated IP system in the future.
IP Technology in Carparks
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.
Carparks do of course have obstacles such as pillars, posts, and other vehicles so it’s extremely important to take in to account the ‘physical location’ of cameras to ensure the best possible coverage.
