A good CCTV system is made up of different components all working together to accurately produce images and recordings that a certain secured environment requires. The best way to understand exactly what makes up a best of class CCTV surveillance solution is by examining the individual components that it requires:
• The DVR/NVR serves as the brains of a CCTV system. These abbreviations stand for Digital Video Recorder/Network Video Recorder. They are products that work in the same fashion as DSTV PVRs as they basically contain the same basic technology. With the use of digital hard drives, recorded video data is then stored simultaneously with real-time monitoring, or for later analysis. High-end NVR systems usually include server-mounted computers that features, among other useful capabilities, can identify and follow capability for selected targets, thus warning users when there have been any item removed or added to a particular room. Other more advanced systems can even identify and log vehicle plates. Some of the newest technologies use high-powered computers that allow for efficient digitization and analysis of incoming feeds from across a network of multiple IP cameras. These systems can also be integrated with other complementary technologies like POS systems, access control systems, weighbridges, and smart building management systems.
• IP CCTV and analog CCTV cameras serve as the eyes of a modern day monitoring system and the quality of the camera determines the quality of the image being fed across your surveillance network and into its NVR unit. Different brands lead the way in terms of camera quality but regardless of your brand preference, always go for cameras that can record in HD clarity over long distances (ideally 100 meters). Good features that new generation IP cameras offer might be too many to list, but make sure that your system devices offer essential features like night vision, internal SD card recording, microphone listening ability, and full fish eye imaging and recording. Find a systems integrator that can provide you with the best combination of best of breed cameras and NVR/DVR systems for world class recording and viewing capabilities.
• Cabling systems and other sundries serve as the arteries of your CCTV system. They are just as vital as the first two components, because they are the backbone of every CCTV solution, responsible for transporting and moving HD images effectively, quickly, and with minimal loss to the NVR. Choose a CCTV solution with a fibre backbone to ensure longevity and efficiency.
