Rectron, the computer component distributors in South Africa, has installed a comprehensive CCTV system in its Head Office at Midrand. Nazeer Khota from Burglar Guard Security Systems - who was awarded the contract - approached Frank Street to design the CCTV system.
Frank Street supplied the Chiper CPT8067P colour dome cameras, Chiper CPT-8800P colour DSP cameras and the Diginet 3000 digital video recorders with realtime display. In total, 96 cameras are being used in the surveillance system. All cameras are being recorded to six Diginet 3000 DVRs. All the Diginet 3000 DVRs are networked to a server across the local area network (LAN). The Diginet 3000s were assembled with 60 Gig hard drives for longer recording periods.
The Chiper DSP Dome uses UL material and is fireproof with a resolution of 420 lines with auto backlight processor. The Chiper CPT-8800P colour camera is a DSP Super-HAD image and micro lens on-chip device. The colour camera uses a built-in 16 bit microprocessor and EEPROM, 225 Windows for picture compensation and picture enhancement.
The Diginet 3000 records using JPEG (joint photographic expert group) technique. The JPEG technique provides an effective method providing balanced algorithm to variable compression ratios. The Diginet system can be networked using the multisite multi-user software via LAN, PSTN or ISDN networks.
Rectron have also installed CCTV systems to their Durban and Pretoria branches and are currently linking these systems to their head office in Midrand.
