IP Video Surveillance

Veracity has its roots in the IP video industry, and they have tailored their portfolio of products to meet the specific needs of installers and users of IP video surveillance equipment.

Installation of IP video cameras

Veracity PINPOINT IP camera setup tool is carried by IP video installers everywhere, as it allows direct network access to IP cameras for set-up and focusing, while still using power available on the installed network.

Setting up an IP camera using a laptop and PINPOINT

For new installations or test sites where power or network connections are not yet available, the POINTSOURCE battery powered POE injector allows IP cameras to be fully configured at the time of fitting.

Upgrading from analogue video

Veracity's range of HIGHWIRE Ethernet over coax converters allow coaxial cables from legacy analogue CCTV systems to be transformed into full-bandwidth network connections. This removes significant expense and time from the process of upgrading to IP video. HIGHWIRE products will even run from legacy 12V or 24V power, and can deliver POE to up to four new cameras.

Upgrading a coaxial installation to IP using HIGHWIRE

In some cases, Cat 5 or similar UTP cable will have been used with video baluns. This can be used directly for the new network and POE installation, unless it is greater than 100 metres (328 feet) in length, the limit for Ethernet.  A simple solution to this is to use Veracity's OUTREACH Lite Ethernet Extender or OUTREACH Max POE and Ethernet extender.

Using Power over Ethernet

As the POE experts, Veracity can offer a range of products to complement your IP video surveillance installation.

If POE is not already available on a network port, OUTSOURCE POE midspan injector provides a fast way to upgrade it.  The OUTBREAK POE splitter can also be used to upgrade non-compatible IP cameras to POE.

For edge switching applications, even if only a 24 volt DC or 24 volt AC supply is available, Veracity's CAMSWITCH Quad (superceded with CAMSWICH Plus) can be used to deliver POE and network connections to up to four devices.

Finally, adding new cameras or extending and distributing POE power is made easy and reliable with our OUTREACH QUAD POE-forwarding Ethernet switch. (OUTREACH QUAD has been replaced by CAMSWITCH 4 PLUS.)

Access Control

Veracity's range of innovative network transmission products are widely used in access control system installations.

POE Plus power

ACS equipment such as door interlock systems often requires more electrical power than is available from regular 802.3af POE.  For these, OUTSOURCE Plus is a fully compliant IEEE 802.3at POE Plus injector, which features enhanced POE Plus for extended range and power.

OUTREACH Max enables extension of Ethernet and POE Plus, to allow optimal positioning of equipment and cabling.

Multi-device support

Up to four POE devices, such as interlocks, cameras and control panels, can be connected to a single Cat 5 network connection using Veracity's OUTREACH Quad POE-forwarding Ethernet switch. (Note OUTREACH Quad has now been replaced by CAMSWITCH 4 PLUS).

CAMSWITCH Plus is a 12 or 24 volt-powered POE switch housed in a rugged enclosure designed for easy, reliable installation

Surveillance Storage Systems

Veracity has developed a range of storage systems designed specifically for IP video surveillance. The surveillance storage systems are aimed particularly at storage of mega-pixel video and long-archive time applications.

Our unique, sequential filing system (SFS) was developed specifically for the COLDSTORE Surveillance Storage System and delivers significant benefits. Combine this with COLDSTORE's Linear Array of Idle Disks (LAID) COLDSTORE provides extremely high disk reliability, high capacity and reduced disk costs with a 90% power saving versus RAID.

Simple to operate, user friendly, easy to maintain with removable, playable disks. Fast access to evidence. Surveillance Storage designed specifically for long retention requirements.


COLDSTORE - Surveillance storage system

Now with 120TB of video storage, using only 60 watts!

COLDSTORE 3U is a highly reliable, high capacity system. Veracity's Linear Array of Idle Disks (LAID™) system combined with their unique Sequential Filing System™ (SFS) produces a powerfully simple system providing large capacity video storage at very low cost.

Networking, Wireless and VoIP

Veracity's expertise in LAN and POE technology, coupled with a thorough understanding of the practical needs of IP equipment installers, enables us to offer a unique range of solutions for all types of network installations.

Easy installation and optimal positioning of wireless APs

Veracity POINTSOURCE battery powered POE injector allows rapid onsite configuration of wireless access points and other POE-powered equipment, even before network or power cabling is available. It can also be used for effective site surveys and trial placements of equipment.

Where long cable runs are required for optimal location of equipment, the OUTREACH Max POE and Ethernet extender can increase UTP cable run length up to several hundred metres, while extending POE, POE PLus or even non-standard POE to high-power equipment.

Where only 12 volt power is available, for example mobile applications, or if a 24V system is specified, Veracity's CAMSWITCH Mobile POE switch offers a compact and rugged solution for connection of up to four Power over Ethernet devices.

Increased range and reliability for wired networks

LAN installations over Cat 5e or similar cable are restricted in length to 100 metres (328 feet), yet often longer connections are required. Veracity's OUTREACH Lite Ethernet extender provides a very cost-effective solution for this, and does not restrict the 100BASE-T network's bandwidth or require local power.

Using OUTREACH Lite to extend network connections

Similarly, a single cable run can branch to many network outlets at increased distances using the OUTREACH Quad Lite POE-powered switch. Using POE to power remote switching equipment not only saves cost, but also increases reliability, as all power can be sourced from a central, UPS-backed supply.

Rapid expansion of VoIP phone systems

Veracity's CAMSWITCH 4 Plus POE-forwarding switch allows rapid addition of handsets to a VoIP network, with all power still coming from the network socket. POE power can be upgraded centrally using the OUTSOURCE Plus POE Plus injector if required.

CAMSWITCH 4 Plus allows four VoIP phones to share a single powered network connection

Veracity products find a range of applications in transport installations, thanks to their flexible power inputs and rugged construction.

Power over Ethernet from a car battery

Their CAMSWITCH Mobile POE switch is used for 12V and 24V applications such as providing POE power to four IP cameras on buses from a single 12-24 volt source.

CAMSWITCH QUAD can deliver POE to up to four cameras or other devices from a single low-voltage supply and carries VCA E-mark type approval for automotive use.

Create network connections between train carriages

HIGHWIRE Ethernet over coaxial technology is used in rail applications, where coaxial cable that has already been installed between carriages can easily be upgraded to an unrestricted 100BASE-T connection, delivering a significant cost saving over installing new network cable and connectors.
