Revader Security to demonstrate enhanced mobile CCTV system capabilities at Security and Policing 2018

Mobile CCTV manufacturer Revader Security will be demonstrating its new and improved redeployable cameras and mobile surveillance tower at Security and Policing 2018, which takes place at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre on 6-8 March.

The company’s specialist security products are engineered to perform in harsh environments. They’re straightforward to install in virtually any location and can be rapidly repositioned to respond to changing security demands. Power options include mains, battery, Power over Ethernet (PoE), diesel and renewable sources.

The company will be presenting two new products at the show – a new mobile CCTV tower and a compact redeployable CCTV solution.


The Galaxy Mobile CCTV Tower is a complete outdoor surveillance solution on wheels which acts as an all-seeing ‘eye in the sky’. The product incorporates four high-end HD cameras set at 360° for 30-metre viewing, a single HD PTZ camera with 150-metre viewing, night vision capability, sensors, alarm inputs, audio, wireless/4G connectivity with dual SIM architecture, extensive local storage, remote monitoring/download and several power options ranging from battery through to diesel.

The CCTV tower is primarily intended for overt deployment by law enforcement and security operators in remote or hazardous locations or at public events and demonstrations. It has also attracted interest for use as a cost-effective solution for construction site CCTV and security guarding replacement in high security areas.

In parallel, Revader Security’s new compact redeployable CCTV solution, designated the Tuu, is constructed from high-grade aluminium or stainless steel and suitable for use in harsh IP67/IP68-rated environments. The Tuu network combines HD PTZ or 360° cameras with 5 TB on-board storage and PoE single cabling.

The units are ideally suited for use by the police, the military and Government customers for evidential recording in custody suites, bio-hazard units and interview rooms and at  operating bases. They’re also a cost-effective option for general purpose indoor and outdoor CCTV, offering end users the ability to rapidly reposition the cameras according to changing surveillance demands and operational requirements.

Stuart Caldecourt, managing director at Revader Security, told Risk UK: “We’re looking forward to demonstrating our enhanced redeployable CCTV solutions to police and Government customers at this important event. We’ve already had a great deal of interest in our new mobile CCTV towers from security operators wishing to replace traditional security guarding with a more cost-effective and reliable alternative. We’re also continuing to impress customers with our ruggedised and redeployable CCTV cameras which are being used in an ever-growing range of scenarios, from construction sites and quarries through to town centres and even in high security laboratories.”

Can demand match supply for wireless in mobile video surveillance?

According to a new report entitled ‘The World Market for Mobile Video Surveillance’ which has been published by IMS Research (now part of IHS), a surplus supply of wireless download technology was fitted to 16% of all video recorders sold in mobile video surveillance markets during 2012.

This is technology that the customer either never intends to use, or doesn’t have the back-end software to support. So does this mean, then, that manufacturers are wasting their money on ‘oversupply’?

As part of new research into the market presented in the report, IHS tracked the current adoption rates of wireless download technology across each vertical market as one of the fastest-moving trends in mobile video surveillance in the past two years.

Adoption rates on the increase

“Adoption rates have increased quickly, with the technology really suiting the usage cases for these larger fleets of trains, buses or police cars,” said David Green, senior analyst for video surveillance at IHS.

“Using Wi-Fi for downloading saves time and cost for the operator, can improve reliability and also offer added value features such as remote vehicle health checks.”

However, in 2012 it would appear that demand lagged behind supply. While 45% of recorders sold were fitted with Wi-Fi that the customer will use, 16% were fitted with technology the customer won’t use – meaning that manufacturers are adding to costs by paying for components that don’t actually need to be fitted.

“In reality, manufacturers won’t be losing out,” asserted Green. “The 16% statistic might sound a lot in terms of unit shipments, but it’s only a small portion of the revenue. Economies of scale mean the component costs will be low to start with, plus most of the oversupply is coming from recorders made by low-cost Asian manufacturers. These companies can’t move on price since they’re already at the bottom, so they compete with each other by loading up on features even though they know the customers won’t use them.”

Green also noted: “You take a look at the high-end manufacturers and the level of oversupply is certainly less than 16%.”

Are the supply levels as they should be?

So does that mean the high-end manufacturers have their supply levels right, and do they expect adoption rates to continue increasing at current rates?

“Definitely they see adoption increasing into the future,” suggested Green.

“Mobile video systems are evolving and wireless is a key part of the more intelligent system, linking with back-end software to provide an end-to-end solution. Manufacturers aren’t wasting their money here, and they’ll see the rewards when the market witnesses a boost in sales over the next couple of years.”
