Integrated CCTV Solutions

Saturday, 01 August 2015

Over the last year, customers across the UK and Ireland have seen huge benefits from IP cameras integrated with the latest DVRs. An IP camera captures HD quality footage, covering larger areas in a higher resolution than its predecessor, the analogue camera. This improved clarity of image has enabled operators to extract a larger amount of crucial information from the footage - and in a shorter time at that. 

Here at Synectics we understand how important and valuable time is to operators. We are currently working with our customers to integrate wireless, IP, new generation recorders and software to create cost savings, improve business efficiencies and increase productivity. 

With large fleets recording for long periods, the efficiency of footage handling and the management of a large number of on-board systems is an important issue for operators. Wireless connectivity can help in both areas, with potential for significant efficiency savings.

With wi-fi access to on-board DVRs, physical visits to the vehicle are no longer necessary to download footage during a vehicle’s visit back at the depot. The functioning of the recorder can also be checked without a physical visit – automatic health checker functionality can carry this out via a wireless connection at depot or cellular connection whilst on the move.

Footage can also be pre-requested for download from the vehicle on its return to the depot and will therefore be available the next day – without staff having to be physically there to retrieve it.

A wireless set-up paves the way for more advanced features such as “geo-fencing”, which allows the swift identification and downloading of relevant footage from vehicles, to assist in providing evidence for criminal prosecution. This removes the need to trawl through footage vehicle by vehicle and manually compile evidence relevant to an event under review. 

This year, Synectics will be exhibiting at Coach and Bus Live at the NEC in Birmingham. At the show we will be demonstrating our next-generation integrated solution and discuss the benefits that can be reaped from integrating technology. This new approach to CCTV can be tailored to individual operators and their business challenges. We are excited about the future of on-board CCTV solutions and look forward to welcoming you to our stand T6 in the Technology Zone, 30th Sept – 1st Oct.
