Closed Circuit Television (CCTV):

Also known as video surveillance is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a set of monitors.

Closed Circuit TeleVision, is a TV system that does not broadcast TV signals to public but transmits them over to limited monitor(s). CCTV system usually utilizes CCD video cameras (to produce the video), cable or wireless transmitters/receivers or Internet (to transmit the video), and monitors (to see the video). CCTV system is not only applied to the security and surveillance purpose but also to the other fields like laboratory in schools or in private companies, even to production lines in factories. As the application of CCTV system increased, the CCTV industry has developed variety of CCTV equipment like Time Lapse VCRs, combiners, infrared illuminators, Pan/Tilt, etc. The most recent development is web camera server which uses the Internet for remote surveillance.

Analyze detailed regions from single or multiple cameras. Use viewing tabs to allow single operators to switch between multiple cameras located throughout large enterprise systems. Digitally zoom and pan within an image with a mouse or surveillance joystick. Automatic dynamic contrast enhancement reveals low-light details for unmatched digital PTZ performance. View live or recorded high-definition surveillance footage.

HDSM technology

Avigilon Control Center uses our proprietary HDSM technology, which efficiently compresses and preserves image quality while intelligently managing HD image transmission throughout the Avigilon system—sending only the requested portions of captured images to operator workstations. This technology delivers the best possible image quality while providing immediate savings in transmission bandwidth allowing operators to use less powerful workstations and thereby reducing costs. Our HDSM technology leverages leading imaging, hardware, data compression and information technology to maximize performance of the Avigilon system.

 Access Control Systems

Depending on the installation requirements, the use of a Stand-alone or Centralized access control system is recommended. An audio or video door entry installation can be included in both setup variations.

1. Stand-alone systems:
Controlling one door/one access. These are indicated when a simple access control with no incidents record is required and also to backup the electronic or video door entry system and allow residents access to the building, for example: offices, small businesses, garages.

2. Centralized systems:
Systems that let you undertake complex installations with many accesses and advanced functions.

There are several technologies, depending on the type of interaction between the identifier and the reader that allows or denies access to the restricted area.
