IP Video Surveillance
IP Video Surveillance (IPVS) has been used for many different reasons over the last several decades and end users are continually establishing new ways to utilize valuable video information. As the analog (VGA) market is still somewhat relevant, IP video surveillance has emerged in the last 5 years not only as the new kid in town but also now the preferred choice by top security integrators such as Teknon.
We fully embrace this shift to IP based systems due to the vast improvements in image resolution, flexibility, transmission, redundancy, distributed intelligence and interoperability with other security systems. Gone are the days of video serving merely as a way to document events in and around a property. Video surveillance is now not only used to catch pre and post criminal activity but also to gather valuable business intelligence that is important to the present and future direction of an organization.
Many decisions regarding the design and installation of a video surveillance system have to be made, such as, determining frame rates, retention periods, and fields of view. On the surface this is quite simple and has been the norm for many years using traditional analog-DVR based systems. Now with wide acceptance, increasing market share, and decreasing cost, IP video surveillance significantly expands the value of a camera surveillance system deployment.
There are multitudes of hardware and software manufacturers emerging in the video surveillance marketplace at all levels of performance and application which can make it difficult to decide just what systems to use. Teknon has partnered with the best of breed IP video surveillance manufacturers to bring you the best proven solutions for most vertical markets. We believe in subscribing to industry standardizations such as ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance). This allows our network savvy technicians and designers to work closely with your IT administrators and security directors in determining the best solutions for your organization’s network infrastructure and security policy.
While mitigation of risk is our primary approach in the world of physical security, video surveillance and the data it provides can assist in strategic decision making and organizational goal achievement. We listen to your present and future needs, educate you on industry best practices, and provide solutions that consider budget, total cost of ownership and maximum return on investment.
