After the initial inspection it became apparent that not all cameras needed to be high definition as some of them had to be focused at a very small surface area. In the end we decided to go mostly with HD-TVI cameras for the open areas and lower picture quality ones for the smaller areas. We chose to use a hybrid recording device, capable of receiving both HD video signal and normal one. This way the client has more flexibility when it comes to camera choice and ultimately it will not be necessary to only have expensive HD cameras installed.
Having suspended ceiling in place helped us run the cabling faster than usual. We ran additional cabling for a second spot monitor that is independently controlled to show as many cameras as needed. This second monitor helps the staff to keep an eye on customers in blind spots, where the main monitor is used to view all the 16 cameras at once and can be used to preview the footage from past events.
As with all of our CCTV systems, the recording devices we used allow for a remote viewing through a wide range of devices - laptops, tablets or phones. In addition to that, the remote viewing software can be setup in a way, so the footage can be recorded in real time on a laptop as well. The Software is very intuitive, so searching is made to be very easy and straightforward.
It took us three days to complete the installation, leaving another customer happy with the results.
