Evidence Quality CCTV Cameras to be used Community Security Study

Viseum : 28 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Viseum is to use its multitasking CCTV camera equipment in a study to measure the effect on the technology in providing evidence quality footage and improving crime detection rates
Evidence Quality CCTV Cameras to be used Community Security Study
Viseum is launching a study to help identify just how much its new CCTV
cameras could save individual communities, and the massive positive effect this
could have on Government budgets and the overall UK economy.

Of 10 field installations where Viseum IMC deployments have been publicised, the
intelligent multi-tasking cameras have made a significant impact on crime
statistics, killing previous problems stone dead. Establishing just how much
the UK will save on its crime bill is the purpose of Viseum's new study. In fact
this track record proves that the best-in-class IMC (Intelligent Moving Camera)
technology is set to save the UK economy Łbillions per year. Its widespread
deployment across the UK would also ensure Home Office Recommendations on crime
detection and prevention are supported, and assist local authorities and law
enforcement agencies in hitting relevant targets.

The UK economy suffered a cost of Ł64 Billion in 2003/4 based upon Government
crime statistics; more worryingly, a more recent independent study indicates
this cost is now running at a staggering 78 Billion pounds per year. Stuart Thompson,
Viseum's Managing Director and inventor of the IMC technology, said: 'By being
less reliant on infrastructures our cameras have proven to help CCTV schemes
capture 25 times more useable evidence than any other manned solution. That is a
massive incentive both socially and economically for local authorities and other
Government agencies to provide protection to large numbers of open space problem

Viseum will launch a savings calculator in the near future, to help identify
just how much money a single IMC will save each particular community with
specific crimes and antisocial problems - thereby providing local authorities
and police forces with the financial data they need to justify the investment.

'In fact Viseum will be encouraging members of the industry to take part in
supporting our study or challenging these numbers,' added Stuart Thompson. 'In
return for the industry's input we will be offering a significant financial
incentive - in addition to these proposed savings.'

A very conservative clear up rate for Viseum IMCs in catching close up evidence-
quality video is 70%, i.e: Viseum aims to clear up at least seven out of 10 open
space incidents, whereas Viseum reports it is actually achieving nearer 100%
clear-up of problems with the IMC so far.
