Are you ready for HD CCTV?

June 2010 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The market has a demand for higher and higher definition solutions in video surveillance applications. Nevertheless, the conventional technologies and composite video standard have restricted the resolution of surveillance video in the last few decades. TeleEye, a pioneer in the field of advanced video surveillance, has developed a complete end-to-end HD CCTV solution to cater for the market needs. The solution consists of MX Series HD CCTV cameras, HD sureREC Recording and sureSIGHT HD Video Management Solution.

World’s first multistream coder for HD video

Conventional video generates a vast amount of data, HD video can generate even more. An efficient video coder is of the utmost importance in any HD surveillance solutions to make a HD system practical at all. TeleEye has developed the HD SMAC-M coder, the world’s first multistream coder for HD video. The MX Series HD CCTV cameras can generate four independent video streams. There is an independent HD recording stream to ensure recordings do not affect the video streaming performance running on the Internet or even on mobile networks. HD SMAC-M has proved to be more efficient in comparison with standard video compression technologies like MPEG-4 or H.264. With the HD SMAC-M video coder, TeleEye MX Series delivers 'no compromise' on both HD video recording and video surveillance functions.

TeleEye HD CCTV Solution provides great image details, a wider view and video recordings in the most demanding surveillance applications.

TeleEye HD cameras are compatible with existing TeleEye Central Monitoring Station equipped control rooms, offering alarm dial-back features, alarm event management and alarm reference images.

16:9 aspect ratio providing wider view

TeleEye MX Series records HD video with a wide screen aspect ratio of 16:9. There is a significant advantage over those conventional cameras providing only a 4:3 aspect ratio. The wide screen format of TeleEye MX provides 33% more viewing area and much better clarity when compared with that provided by conventional cameras. This wider view provided by the TeleEye MX Series can greatly reduce blind spots in a surveillance system.

Superb video quality with great details

TeleEye MX Series HD CCTV cameras provide ultra-high resolution video quality. The resolution is increased to over 800 TVL which exceeds the maximum 540 TVL usually provided by conventional cameras.

High definition progressive scan video

TeleEye MX Series HD CCTV cameras employ progressive scanning. This means the images have less distortion and jaggedness. Progressive scanning is especially useful when looking at fast moving objects.

IP-based video surveillance solution

TeleEye high definition video surveillance system is an IP-based solution. TeleEye HD CCTV system can utilise existing network resources, provide a reasonable degree of noise immunity and transmit video through different media such as CAT5 cable, WiFi or mobile network.
