IP Surveillance Package Available From Chubb

Chubb : 20 July, 2012  (New Product)
Designed for smaller businesses, the new CCTV package from Chubb gives access to the advantages of IP surveillance technology
IP Surveillance Package Available From Chubb
Chubb Fire & Security UK has launched its own IP CCTV surveillance system, a ‘packaged’ security solution that enables any company with Internet access to protect and monitor its business from anywhere in the world, 24/7..

IP CCTV turns images and audio into data that can be transmitted over high bandwidth dedicated networks (and in some cases a company’s existing network infrastructure) with an Internet connection to a central location or PC. Digital technology delivers high quality images that do not degrade on playback, recording or onward forwarding, and gives security managers greater flexibility to view and manage CCTV images from a networked computer or smart phone.

Easy to install, configure and use, IP CCTV cameras have considerable advantages over ‘traditional’ analogue systems in that they do not require dedicated cables for power and camera control, says Matthew Holliday of Chubb Fire & Security: “IP cameras use a single standard network cable to simply connect the camera to your network,” he says. “This single cable can be used for power, control, video and data, resulting in less disruption to your workplace and less time to install.

The system comprises a graphical user interface (GUI) that is intuitive to use, with features such as single-button image archive and back-up operation. Users can display multiple cameras in a single ‘drag and drop’ operation and can view any combination of cameras from a single workstation.

Image quality is one of the most important features of any high definition (HD) CCTV system as it is frequently called upon for police evidence. IP cameras use megapixel technology for excellent image quality at up to three times the resolution of the best analogue cameras on the market, Matthew explains: “Analogue cameras have a maximum 400,000 pixels per frame, whereas IP cameras record to 1.3 million megapixels per frame and higher, so the quality of the image never degrades.”

Businesses that currently use analogue technology can still integrate their current cameras with an IP surveillance solution. Video encoders enable analogue video to be digitised, transmitted and viewed over an IP network, thereby giving the user all the advantages of IP surveillance, such as viewing live images using a web browser or any local or remote computer on a network. Users can simultaneously access images from analogue cameras as well as any IP CCTV cameras that are added to the system.

“Users can migrate from analogue CCTV to IP at their own pace,” Matthew continues, “as the two camera technologies can run alongside each other as long as needed, allowing time to plan and budget the upgrade of a surveillance system. Furthermore, they can record the images in a central location, avoiding the cost of requiring local recording devices at each property.”

An IP network CCTV system can be expanded quickly and easily by adding more network cameras as required. Strict adherence to industry standard open protocols means that the system has the future ability to integrate with other equipment, such as access control and building management systems.  As IP CCTV uses standard CAT 5/6 cabling, this can further reduce disruption and expense through the use of existing structural cabling as opposed to dedicated coax cable, further leveraging the existing investment in IT.
