So would you like to play "Spot the CCTV Camera?". Eagle eyed visitors may recognise the profusion of street furniture, surrounding a single heritage dome camera keeping watch over part  of Londons' prestigious Oxford Street shopping area.

Pelco CCC 1390 Day / Nigth WDR camera

It never rains in California, it pours ...
Dateline:- April 6th 2005, Clovis, California, USA

As DVR's continue to be adopted as replacements for analogue recording in almost every situation, the security industry is increasingly moving towards Network Recording for many multi camera installations.

In rising to the challenge, Pelco have introduced their new NVR 300 Network Video Recorder, a product designed and built to efficiently centralise the recording of multiple video and audio signals.

With the option of either internal or external RAID 5 storage, or where cost limitations dictate, an internal non RAID version is also available.

Multiple units can be seamlessly integrated, and with in built ADR (Automatic Data Replenishment) technology, the system can be configured with a PelcoNet NET 350 to provide a Compact Flash 'back up' to ensure video stream continuity; even if the network is temporarily interrupted due to adverse localised conditions.

If used in conjunction with the VMX 300 Video Management System, a complete "Hybrid System" can be created, to seamlessly integrate both digital and analogue devices, in the most demanding applications.

Standard features include full featured searches, continuous or alarm recording, full duplex operation over TCP / IP networks, and secure digital watermarking to ensure evidential integrity.

If you're looking towards uprgading to an NVR system, it's obviously also worth thinking about existing imaging technology.

Pelco obviously have, as they've just come up with a new Day / Night Wide Dynamic camera, the 1390 series. With a removable Infra Red cut filter for enhanced sensitivity at night, this new series offers 'on screen' programmable menus, accessible from the camera or remotely using a system controller with either 'P' or 'D' protocol.

With a compact design, customisable camera settings, and both Wide Dynamic and DSS Lowlight technologies, this model is clearly built for demanding situations.
