The Streamline Systems team has the technical experience installing of some of the region’s largest institutional CCTV projects including CCTV for Head of States, Universities, Conference Centers, Supermarkets and Ports of entry. Our CCTV systems are designed from the ground up from simple 8-channel analogue systems to nation-wide Megapixel IP video systems. Video analytics are often used to reduce the dependence on technical staff and to draw attention to potential issues such as a crossed line (jumped fence) or a person loitering late at night, all automatically. Additionally Long range infra-red systems can be used as coastal defense and early warning systems.
The advantages of IP Networked Video Cameras over traditional Analog
Accessibility – As the market strives to reduce the amount of staff needed to operate security systems, IP networks allow further centralization. A single operator can monitor remote and wireless cameras from anywhere on the network, and the video can be stored remotely as well. And while many competitors offer point-to-point wireless capability, Bosch allows wireless access anywhere on the network.
Simplified installation at lower costs – Rather than requiring extensive coax cabling like analog systems, IP Network Video systems connect through CAT-5 or wireless communication systems that already exist in many buildings. Reduced storage costs – When CCTV video moves into the networked world, it allows you to take advantage of IT technologies like network attached storage and storage area networks, which can hold huge amounts of data. The system is using dedicated high-density storage servers rather than relying on a single hard drive. The video on those servers can then be shared with anyone anywhere on the network. Reliability – IP uses the benefi ts of Internet technology to create a more reliable security system. It can automatically redirect video traffic to a backup storage system in the event of a power failure or network outage. Scalability – IP networks offer improved flexibility for enlarging a CCTV system. It is not only easy to add cameras, but also to add storage space and distribute it across the network. Plus, IP networks are uniquely able to support multiple viewers. In the same way that an e-mail server can send the same data to multiple people at the same time, the network switch has the ability to clone the video and use the same data multiple times. Video quality – Modern IP systems use H264 compression, which makes more efficient use of the network than M-JPEG. IP gives you the ability to customize the quality of the video output based on your viewing needs and storage capacity.
