Joining forces to improve CCTV surveillance of Aylesbury town centre, Thames Valley Police and Aylesbury District Council have chosen the latest Ganz C-Allview high-speed ruggedised PTZ cameras from CBC to monitor two key road intersections.
In the first installation of its kind for the town, the cameras have been set up using a wireless link. Telemetry signals are transmitted to receivers on the police station roof, 1 km from the monitored site. "We're very pleased with this solution as it has enabled us to fill an important gap in our CCTV coverage," says CCTV control room manager Ken Foot.
Aylesbury DC and Thames Valley Police jointly run what is one of the newest, and most technically advanced digital CCTV control rooms in the country. And while the Aylesbury surveillance team has used alternative cameras of a similar type in the past, the new C-Allviews are proving a better solution.
"They are priced competitively and give great results," adds Ken Foot. "When I first saw them at a local trade show last year I was immediately impressed by them and they have not disappointed me." He says he'll be looking to fit more of the C-Allviews at remote locations around the town centre in the coming year.
The Ganz C-Allviews are designed to deliver superior performance and cope with all weather conditions. With their distortion-free, optically flat glass, built-in wipers, and IP67 rating, the cameras deliver crisp, clear images in conditions where other models might struggle.
