Surveillance

Empowering video surveillance.

Solutions that help protect what’s important to you and your business – in Banking, Education, Government, City Surveillance, Retail, Gaming, Healthcare, Transportation and any business where security is a concern.

  • Banking on Promise

    Data protection is vitally important in banks to ensure that your customers, employees and assets are protected because any loss of data caused by faulty storage can result in huge problems. The banking industry has strict regulatory requirements for how long video must be stored, therefore, if the deployment does not have high-capacity, scalable solutions it will soon run into a storage crisis.
    Banks also have strict site restrictions which limit the number of outside support personnel that can access the storage systems, so if the system is difficult to use and maintain it can cause huge complications. And while banks are filled with money, spending lots of their own isn’t always practical. Security integrators face tight budget constraints in the banking industry which means it is paramount to find solutions that enable the customer to do more for less.
  • Keeping an eye on Education

    Today, schools and universities around the world are faced with pressure to reduce costs, yet increase security. Integrators have to do more with less or put the entire campus at risk. Students and buildings can be spread across large campuses and the systems must be set up so all buildings and areas can be monitored so both students and faculty feel safe. Consistent and stable recording throughput is crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped and the entire campus is being monitored.
    As campuses continue to grow in size, surveillance solutions must provide the flexibility to add capacity when needed, or face huge costs to replace the entire system. Flexibility is also important when integrating IP cameras with analog cameras from legacy systems.
  • Government – shrinking budgets and big challenges

    Government budgets are always heavily scrutinized, so security integrators must reduce costs but still be able to boost security capabilities as the number of possible threats continues to grow. Government facilities, such as legislative or city halls, can be spread across several buildings and absolutely everything needs to be recorded and monitored as efficiently as possible. Consistent and stable recording throughput is crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped and all buildings are being monitored and safe from potential threats.
    In today’s evolving political climate, Government infrastructure can change quickly, and with it, new security requirements. Surveillance solutions must provide the flexibility to add capacity, additional cameras, as well as integrating existing elements - or face the huge costs associated with replacing the entire system.
  • City Surveillance - downtime places the city at risk

    Some cities never sleep, which means in order to keep the streets and its citizens safe, you can’t afford downtime from your surveillance system - or the whole city could be at risk of a major event. With hundreds of cameras recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, capacity restrictions effect how you can safely archive video for long periods of time. A surveillance solution must provide the flexibility to add capacity when needed or face the huge costs to replace the entire system.
    More than any other surveillance environment, city surveillance projects are spread across huge areas that need to be recorded and monitored as efficiently as possible. That means more cameras, more footage, and of course, more throughput needed to monitor everything. Consistent and stable recording throughput is crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped and all areas of the city are being monitored and safe from potential threats.
  • Retail – reducing risk, reducing shrinkage

    To keep shoppers safe and reduce vandalism and theft, retail customers require all-in-one integrated solutions that are easy to install and set up so the system can be up and running quickly. Overly complicated systems from retail IT specialists, can be a real pain to manage and hurt the overall efficiency of your surveillance solution as you can miss critical data that can hurt your bottom-line.
    Retail surveillance projects need to store more information than ever before and require the flexibility to easily and affordably add capacity when needed or face huge costs to replace the entire system. Individual stores often require small-size NVR solutions that support local recording and playback on a unified platform.
  • Gaming – where there’s big money, there’s the possibility of theft

    Gaming is an industry with high stakes that make it a target for all sorts of criminal activities. Casinos need solutions they can trust to safeguard their data to protect themselves and their guests. Security requirements in the gaming industry are constantly evolving so any surveillance solution must provide the flexibility to add capacity, efficiently and cost-effectively.
    Casinos cover huge areas that may be spread across several buildings and every inch of the gaming floor needs to be monitored by video surveillance or the casino could be at risk for major losses. Consistent and stable recording throughput is crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped and all areas of the casino are being monitored and safe from potential threats.
  • Health Care - creating a safe and welcoming environment

    Health care facilities can be huge buildings, which present a series of challenges to how the surveillance system should be set up and monitored so the guests and staff feel safe, yet never feel intruded upon. Because there is a constant turn over in patients, the amount of footage captured and archived continues to grow. Health care infrastructure is constantly evolving so the surveillance solution must provide the flexibility to add capacity as needed.
    As anyone who reads the news can tell you, the health care industry faces a lot of pressure to save money, so security integrators must reduce costs, without reducing the level of patient and staff security.
  • Transportation – securing more than just a facility

    Unlike a typical surveillance environment, missing a piece of footage doesn’t just impact what happens at your facility. It could have much greater ramifications at the local, state, national, or even, global scale. Missing any angle can be devastating. Every inch needs to be monitored by video surveillance so all travelers are safe. In short - downtime is simply not acceptable.
    With hundreds of cameras recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can’t risk a capacity crisis that affects how you can safely archive video data for long periods of time. Consistent and stable recording throughput is crucial when multiple feeds are being viewed to ensure frames are not dropped. And a growing number of projects require the convenience of being able to share and view surveillance video without any geographical limitations.
