Business intelligence – the wider use of CCTV


Amax provides retail analytics and recovery solutions

Advances in technology have transformed how CCTV can be used in business. Traditionally only used for security, CCTV systems had low quality images, poor monitors and slow recording & playback. In many circumstances, the images could not provide the evidential quality required for security or give any business insight. Now they can give real business intelligence. How?

Enter hi-def cameras and video analytics

Digital technology now means that the images from CCTV have incredible clarity. The recording devices allow for fast processing and analysis of footage and the internet allows you monitor entire CCTV networks from a single, central location or mobile device.  Intelligent video management systems (VMS) utilise a wide range of software capable of being configured for specific uses. The What does this mean for business, apart from superb security?

Many of the latest video analytics system can also be installed as software and used over existing systems, provided they are digital. By applying sophisticated algorithms to video feeds and adding an analytics layer, CCTV’s full potential can be realised – all on systems that are easy to use. For example, retailers are using the systems to better understand their customers. Airports, transport hubs and visitor attractions can better understand people flows, detect operational incidents and optimise their operations and turnover.

Just with all technology, these systems are becoming more and more affordable. As many of the systems are powered using their own cables and use wi-fi, the installation of new systems is simple, and non-disruptive. Hi-definition means less cameras, lower maintenance costs, less power consumption and are easy to upgrade.

Amax can show you how all this can be achieved. Call us today to arrange a free consultation on how your business can benefit.

What our clients say:

Amax took over our fire and security systems in 2011 and the service we have received since that time has been impeccable. The quality of the CCTV is world class, the system is very easy to use and recording data is as simple as inserting a memory stick. We have had a number of successful investigations due to evidence gained through the HD CCTV system. I would recommend this system to anyone.
