CCTV is both a crime prevention and crime-deterrent measure and increasingly a tool for intelligence gathering and post-incident detection and arrest.
The continually developing role of CCTV within society is creating the need for huge volumes of image data that can be stored for lengthy periods of time and can be searched intensively for evidence.
The improvement in video compression and the reduction in hard disk storage costs have combined to create an opportunity for effective and cost effective CCTV digital storage solutions to replace traditional analogue VHS-based storage systems in the CCTV control room.
A safer investment by modular design
Investing in a digital storage solution can be a significant investment, you don’t want to be stuck with a system that is obsolete in only a couple of years.
Unlike many current video storage systems that have a finite storage capacity, the BT i-Witness digital video storage solution comprises modular units, allowing you to upgrade various component parts when your needs change or technology improves.
Future technological developments in any one area - for example in coding standards or storage techniques - can be easily accommodated without the requirement for a complete system upgrade.
Evidence that will stand up in court
The BT i-Witness digital storage solution, as its name suggests, gives you video that will stand up to the toughest defence in court. The combined elements of video coding, authentication and audit-trail facilities ensure that BT i-Witness is able to deliver virtually tamper-proof video for use as evidence by using market-leading levels of data integrity using the latest security encryption algorithms.
Spend more time working with evidence than searching for it
BT i-Witness digital storage solution is designed to use less of your valuable operator or police officer time searching for evidence. Equipment is connected using gigabit networks and interfaces that ensure users can retrieve data quickly and efficiently when reviewing images immediately post-incident. What’s more, users can search for footage based on time and date.
