Each relocated camera now features a NVT Single Channel Video Transceiver located in the base of the camera pole. From there, images are transmitted via a 20-pair UTP backbone cable to a street-side communications cabinet containing multiple NVT Video Transceivers. The video signals are then transferred to the fibre ‘backbone' for transmission back to the control room.

Connecting each camera via a 20-pair UTP backbone also meant a smoother and less cumbersome installation process versus that required by a traditional RG59/RG11 coax system, due to UTP's significantly reduced dimensions. This proved critical during the installation period, when the reduction of civil works on Slough's busy streets was a top priority.
Additionally, NVT Hybrid Video™ UTP products also feature Ground Loop Isolation and Interference Immunity as standard; delivering crystal-clear images in the control room, even among the challenging environment of a modern town centre that

By installing a 20-pair NVT Hybrid Video™ UTP network to the fibre link, CDS Integrated Security Systems have also supplied the council with a future-proof and easily expandable network, allowing any additional cameras needed to be simply added, using the multiple spare UTP pairs. This inherent expandability can also be harnessed to further relieve the financial constraints of the existing end-to-end leased fibre links, by converting more of the existing cameras to connect to the new
central fibre ‘backbone' via NVT UTP Hybrid Video™, a strategy under strong consideration for the future.
CDS Integrated Security Systems are using NVT UTP Hybrid Video™ transmission on existing and forthcoming projects, from town centres like Slough, to high-profile single sites/multi-camera projects such as the Welsh Assembly.
