CCTV images the way they should be seen
WE OFFER OUR SERVICES TO END USERS OUR OBJECTIVE IS SIMPLY TO ENSURE YOUR CCTV SYSTEM GIVES VALUE FOR MONEY AND CONFORMS TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS.
Organisations in over 32 countries have bought our equipment or attended seminars and training courses on the methods we employ. All that have employed our services or been trained to use a defined method for planning a CCTV system have reaped considerable benefit.
We conduct site visits to advise on the drafting of an Operational Requirement “OR” without which no CCTV system should be installed. We can test and evaluate the effectiveness of newly installed CCTV to ensure it meets the requirements of the “OR” we can evaluate an existing system and make recommendations to improve the effectiveness.
System planning, testing methods and equipment has been sold to some of the world's most security conscientious countries in the world: Israel, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, South Africa, USA. Countries renown for their security procedures. Our clients in these countries and others range from government organisations down to individual business owners.
We spent 4 weeks in Taipei City, Taiwan overseeing the testing of cameras, lenses and infrared projectors . We also undertook training of 150 police officers in understanding the need for an Operational Requirement and what makes a good CCTV image….
Is it your eyes? Or is it your camera setup that has got a problem? We are clad to say its not your eyes. It is the lack of objective testing of CCTV systems that results in images like the one top left. If these cameras had been tested against known standards to internationally accepted practices on a regular basis then corrective action could have been taken to avoid the embarrassment of having to admit that you have been paying for a CCTV system that produces images that are not fit for purpose.
Modern forward thinking management looks at mitigating risk and preventive maintenance to ensure organisation and equipment, does not fail us. This is never more important than when dealing with security issues, CCTV systems need regular objective testing to ensure they are fit for purpose. When was the last time you tested yours? What method did you use? Have you a bench mark to test against? Do you have the records to validate the tests were undertaken?
You could just wait until an incident occurs and hope all will be well!
