Promoting the company’s ethos of establishing close technical working partnerships, CCTV design and manufacturing organisation 360 Vision Technology – working in conjunction with systems control company Meyertech – has developed fast and easy set-up and “deep control” for 360 Vision’s range of ONVIF-compliant security cameras.
Right from the outset, the manufacturers’ technical relationship has spearheaded an objective to develop product offerings from both companies that will easily and seamlessly integrate when installed within any application using the ONVIF protocol.
Thanks to the ongoing technical partnership between the two UK-based technology manufacturers, simple product set-up, deep systems integration and performance benefits are built into many applications and sizes of CCTV installations across the globe.
However, the manufacturers’ long-term technical partnership extends much further than just a shared protocol, as Mark Rees (business development director at 360 Vision Technology) explained to Risk UK.
“From the design stage of any new product, our respective R&D teams interact to ensure the camera equipment we introduce to market is as best performing and simple to set-up and use as it can possibly be.”
For installations using the enterprise-class FUSION-Eclipse Video Management Software (VMS) through to the simple (four-camera) Nano VMS, the deployment of 360 Vision Technology’s ONVIF-compliant cameras offers simple two-click integration with any Meyertech control solution.
David Wood, business development executive for Meyertech, stated: “Users of our FUSION-Eclipse VMS software simply select the ‘Discovery’ tool and then add the desired 360 Vision camera from the list of devices available in a drop down menu. The camera is then ready for use in the system. Further to that, the usual IP camera options such as frame rate and video resolution are easily configured in an intuitive sub menu. Features such as IR and white lights, wipers and pre-set tours on 360 Vision’s Predator cameras can be selected directly.”
In this way, any 360 Vision camera can be integrated into a Meyertech-controlled CCTV system in minutes. The partnership continues to ensure that 360 Vision cameras are as simple as possible to integrate into existing systems or add to new installations, in turn minimising installation times and maximising system performance.
Rees concluded: “360 Vision Technology is always looking to partner with like-minded CCTV systems integration manufacturers. With our long term technical relationship with Meyertech, we’re not only ensuring installers and end users can enjoy a fully-integrated, hassle-free systems control experience, but also promoting the benefits to be gained by specifying ‘Best of British’ integrated surveillance solutions.”
