The Latest in CCTV

What’s going on in the world of CCTV? Closed-circuit televisions are used for a variety of reasons, but most commonly as surveillance devices for areas that need such monitoring. Over the years, businesses big and small have installed CCTV systems, often accompanied with a human monitor (hence the term). This concept and technology has been around for some time, and we are all familiar with the cliché image of a semi-retired security guard taking a snooze in front of the monitor screen. However, with today’s more advanced technology, the CCTV industry has progressed in effectiveness and overall affordability when it comes to successfully securing an area. Although one might assume that these technological advances would make human monitoring obsolete, this is not true; but with today’s technology, the industrial standard is making a shift into IP and integrated CCTV systems.

Simply put, IP is internet protocol, and the demand for IP video surveillance is at an all- time high, mainly because it is becoming a more affordable security solution. IP cameras use the internet to transmit video across data networks in digital form. It is projected that in the next 2-5 years, most buildings will have some sort of integrated system, meaning a mixture of IP and analog cameras. These options include Digital Video Recording (DVR), Network Video Recording (NVR), and Hybrid Video Recording (HVR), all available through Advanced Control Corporation.  Advanced Control Corp. offers full-service CCTV solutions, offering a cost-effective approach to a successful transition from analog to network, which is specifically shaped to fit your businesses needs.
