While on contract overseas, Eugene Kayat was exposed to various major role players in the electronic security industry, including Intelligent Security Systems. Impressed with the company's offering, he decided to bring these technologies back to South Africa.

Branevision was initially launched as an IT business, specialising in applications design for businesses, with emphasis placed in the shutdown of vulnerable systems, utilising both hardware and software-based technologies.

"With an ongoing interest in the ever evolving field of compression technologies, we moved into the field of CCTV, with our emphasis being placed on the PC-based systems, which we felt offered greater development opportunities, and customisable possibilities than other systems," says Kayat. "The fine line of distinction in the development of lossy and lossless compression technologies and the partial amalgamation of the two, has led to major breakthroughs in the field of compression technologies."

IP-based systems are rapidly changing the way CCTV is viewed, with leading players opting for the utilisation of existing network infrastructures, as a means of video transmission. Branevision provides both analogue and IP systems, as well as the amalgamation of the two in certain situations. Emphasis is also placed on the use of existing cameras where possible and new systems are structured in such a way as to deliver excellent return on investment, culminating in a well structured and designed system that provides great value at an affordable total cost of ownership.

Focus on ISS

Branevision's core business is to supply Intelligent Security Systems' (ISS) products to systems integrators and to provide comprehensive training and backup.

ISS was founded in 1997 in Moscow, Russia. Today, worldwide operations are centred at the company headquarters in Woodbridge, New Jersey. Research and development is conducted simultaneously in New Jersey and at the world renowned Baumann's Institute in Moscow. Sales offices and partners are located throughout the United States and Europe, and now in southern Africa, covering the Sub-Saharan regions.

Dr. Roman Jarkoi, founder of ISS, began developing revolutionary multichannel video systems as early as 1993. The system, which automatically tracked the displacement of objects, had the means of vocal notification of events and controlled the video recording of tape recorder. In three more years, he developed a completely digital system, capable of writing video directly to the hard disks and reflecting live and multiplexed video on the digital monitor. Jarkoi is currently the chairman and chief technology officer of ISS.

"Branevision prides itself in providing advanced intelligent systems which have been proven in mission critical environments in over 50 countries," adds Kayat. "We are in the process of appointing integrators in the various cities of South Africa, with whom we can form a long and trusting relationship."

The company has recently established contacts in Africa to complement its established partners in the Middle East. However, Kayat says the company's short-term goal is to recognise integrators that are professional in their attitude and business ethics to appoint as partners. We work ethically, honestly and professionally, providing real solutions to customers.
