- While designing CCTV systems, much time is spent on estimating the adequate focal length and the right location and height of video cameras to get the perfect image on the screen. Moreover, estimating persons’ identification areas and vehicles’ license plates reading-out areas could cause additional difficulties.
- The task becomes more complicated when locating optimal positions of numerous cameras or when assigning to one same camera several tasks (for example identification of incoming people and surveillance over the perimeter).
- It is essential to determine upstream how and where this or that object will be displayed on screen, to calculate the triggering parameters of the motion detection function, and to check the availability of enough light and contrast ratio.
- Objects, walls, columns, desks, plantings, lights and backlights, are factors that, if not taken into consideration in the initial layouts, will definitely affect the final display of your CCTV system and therefore, create an enormous gap in your security issues. These gaps would lead to either open the way to non-monitored and non-recorded acts of theft, burglary, vandalism, terrorism, and/or to gender future unforeseen costs in order to correct the previously made mistakes.
Proximity, throughout its professional CCTV software, offers the following:
- Choose the most suitable lenses, heights and locations for camera installation in order to provide the required parameters of viewing areas, detection, identification, and license plates reading, using CAD interface in the graphics window.
- Calculate the horizontal projection sizes of viewing areas, person detection, identification and license plate reading-out areas and draw them on the object plan.
- Measure the viewing area distortions and shadows, arising from natural obstacles..
- Display the viewing area actual image enabling to measure any parameters at any point using the graphics window.
- Study the influence of the criteria of person detection, identification and license plate reading-out on the sizes and location of the corresponding areas by changing the parameters according to the video image quality obtained.
- Save the actual view area image in graphical format.
- Create, save and load projects containing up to 100 cameras and up to 10 layouts.
- Export projects into text files.
- Keep the databases all parameters, depending on quality levels of video image.
- Calculate automatically the length and electrical parameters of cables.
In summary, when our team creates a CCTV design, 3 major targets emerge:
- Reduce cameras’ quantity and increase of their efficiency.
- Reduce time and boost the design quality.
- Cut down controversial situations with customers and accelerate CCTV solutions.
