Cameras deter criminals

Megapixel proves its worth.

AVEnforce Electronics is offering the South African market a well-proven IP-based, high-resolution video surveillance system that delivers the exceptional levels of detail required for forensic analysis and successful prosecution.

Alex De Barros, divisional MD at AV Enforce Electronics, says one of the many strengths of a megapixel IP-based video surveillance camera is its capability to clearly capture the tiniest detail.

He adds that an excellent example of this is the implementation of an IP-based, high-resolution video surveillance system at Scan Computer International, one of Europe’s largest independent technology suppliers.

The new system replaced a traditional analogue CCTV system. It featured megapixel IP cameras from Arecont Vision, and included AV1300M (1,3 MP) models for key entrance and exit areas and the AV2100M (2 MP) and AV3100M (3 MP) cameras to monitor warehouse aisles. A combination of AV3100DN (3 MP) and AV5100M and AV5100DN (5 MP) day/night cameras with facial recognition and licence plate recognition software were deployed for external areas.

“This had an immediate impact in reducing on-site crime for Scan Computer International. They have been able to provide the police with excellent video evidence of incidents. The quality of the video from the megapixel cameras also helped to resolve many disputes and reduce costly problems such as shrinkage, which were caused by short shipments by delivery personnel or internal theft,” said De Barros.

AV Enforce Electronics offers South Africa the industry’s broadest range of Arecont Vision megapixel IP cameras ranging from 1.3 to 10 megapixels in colour or day/night versions, over and above 8 megapixel panoramic cameras.

“This megapixel performance is offered at prices comparable to IP VGA cameras and opens a broader range of applications to the technology,” says De Barros. ”Arecont Vision also combines H.264 compression and proprietary image processing to provide greater compression efficiency that overcomes concerns about bandwidth and the storage implications of megapixel technology.”
