For environments such as banks, prisons, railways, nuclear power stations or gas utilities, it is mission critical that video surveillance cameras are able to capture superb quality images which can be instantly displayed on a control monitor to provide operators with greater situation awareness and to be able to respond quickly to any incident or emergency. It is also essential that operators are provided with a robust, high availability recording solution which will allow them to review video evidence of any suspicious activity.
If you are designing a video surveillance solution for a high security application, we suggest that you take a close look at the latest generation of high definition Illustra Pro Mini-Domes. The Smart Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology built into the 2,3, 5 and 8 megapixel models, greatly improves the quality of images captured in varying lighting environments and the Mini-Domes also benefit from Illustra® IntelliZip bandwidth management, network failover redundancy and Video Intelligence Analytics. Bullet camera variants of the Illustra Pro series, with long distance IR capability and enhanced telephoto lens, offer a practical alternative option.
Video recording and storage: Choose one of the high capacity exacqVision Z-Series NVRs, each of which are able to record and store images captured by up to 64 analogue cameras, as well as up to 128 IP network Illustra Pro Mini-Domes. Depending on the size of the project, a VideoEdge NVR with up to 140TB of data storage onboard could be an effective alternative option. Both NVR’s offer RAID support and are equipped with dual power supplies.
