Demand for high specification, rapid re-deployable video solutions continues to grow as national governments, local authorities and police worldwide look to work smarter by reacting quickly and effectively to combat activity in criminal & terrorist hotspots.
Both public and private sector organisations are increasingly taking an interest in video solutions which combine image capture, recording, storage and transmission technology in one product and yet can be installed within minutes, unlike traditional CCTV which incurs large infrastructure and maintenance costs.
Hazardous environments such as construction sites, factories and quarries are just a few examples of where businesses are turning to re-deployable video solutions as a means of economically monitoring activity across a number of sites. The Event Management industry is also appreciating the advantage of an all-in-one video solution that can be easily deployed on a temporary basis. Similarly, government and law enforcement are finding re-deployable CCTV a highly effective tool in counter-terror and street crime operations alike.
Reflecting this increased demand, Revader Security has introduced five new vandal resistant rapid re-deployable models which collectively provide customers with the choice to capture D1 resolution images via a 36x zoom PTZ camera or HD images with a 360 degree camera. All models offer the potential for 2TB of video storage, with most being able to offer transmission through WiFI, Ethernet and 3G connectivity.
The new robust high specification products are designed to be installed in minutes, are vandal or ballistics resistant and take into account that quite often may need to be located where no power source exists, which is why the Revader Totem and Transit models can be powered by a 12v battery, whilst Revader’s ‘miniature’ Tuu model utilises PoE (Power over Ethernet).
“We anticipate that our 360 degree models will be particularly popular as they can significantly reduce the number of cameras and personnel needed to monitor an area without any blind spots” said Phil Burns, General Manager of London-based Revader Security. “All models are however provided with all the component parts of a plug and play style re-deployable solution which has the means to record, store and transmit the captured images.”
Revader’s new models utilise the highly reliable Wavestore Linux-based video recording and management software. Users who deploy the 360 degree models can capitalise on the software’s highly acclaimed de-warping capability which provides the ability to create a unique video clip of a moving object, an individual or a group of people. To track activity, operators can control a virtual PTZ function to zoom, navigate and roam through seamless de-warped video in both recorded and real-time. Video clips of an unlimited number of individual events captured in the camera’s entire field of view can then be saved, encrypted, watermarked and exported for evidential purposes within seconds.
