Siemens release a CCTV Planning Guide to help Installers, Integrators and Consultants build the right systems

Product Profile

Overview of cameras, from recording to display
The newly published CCTV Planning Guide from Siemens is an invaluable guide to the products available in the CCTV range.

Available in both brochure and poster format, the Guide is a key sales tool for the installer, supporting the selection of the right products.

The products are shown in a portfolio, from the first component in a system, through to cameras and transmission to switching and recording, as well as monitoring and control. In this way, the guide acts as a checklist, so that no products are forgotten when putting together a system, ensuring compatibility.

Technical background information
Next to the portfolio overview, the Guide contains technical background information in the form of advantages and disadvantages of the different transmission modes to help in the selection of the correct type for the respective application.  Explanations on streaming and transmission rates further supports product selection.

IP based products & technology
A special section on IP products provides an overview of the IP based products: from hybrid and dual codec IP cameras, to IP fixed domes to the SISTORE range of recording systems; SISTORE CX, encoding camera signals and transmitting them via IP network and SISTORE MX Hybrid recording both analogue and IP cameras.

Network Video Recording
The new SISTORE MX NVS, also shown in the Planning Guide, brings all the recording and monitoring capabilities of the SISTORE MX system on a software basis - forming a complete IP network-based system, from recording IP cameras, transmitting the images over an IP network, and displaying them on a standard PC that is connected over an Ethernet network.

Integration possibilities
Plus there is a section on Video Software showing the benefits of displaying camera images and controlling several SISTORE DVRs via a single interface.  Additionally it demonstrates the possibility of integration of CCTV with the SiPass access control system.
