The Video Surveillance Report 2021


Video upgrade projects from IDIS shortlisted for the Security & Fire Excellence Awards

Two major video upgrade projects, utilising IDIS surveillance technology, are on the shortlist for the upcoming virtual Security & Fire Excellence Awards on Wednesday 25th November. We find out a little more about the projects from the video technology vendor.

IDIS-SEAwards-20A scheme in a south London neighbourhood has been shortlisted in the Security Project of the Year category. A crime-cutting initiative, implemented by IDIS integration partner Hall & Kay, involved the replacement of ageing column-mounted PTZs with more powerful but less obtrusive bullet cameras.

The end-to-end solution at the Meridian South estate in Hither Green ensures full area coverage without the need for overt PTZ cameras and has had a transformative effect on reducing crime. Evidence from the system is now captured day and night without blind-spots, and has cut problems including fly-tipping, theft, and anti-social behaviour.

And, for the Security Manager of the Year category, a major, multi-site IDIS surveillance upgrade contributed to an award shortlisting for Tracey Edwards at Southern Heath NHS Foundation Trust. The project spanned several locations, and incorporated 12MP fisheye cameras, full HD IR domes, and failover-protection, cybersecure storage and transmission, providing a resilient comprehensive record of events to be captured at the Trust’s various care facilities. Ease of use for clinical staff is enabling rapid retrieval of footage, helping to improve standards of care.

Welcoming the double awards shortlisting, Jamie Barnfield, Sales Director, IDIS Europe said: “We are working closely with our integration partners to deliver affordable solutions that deliver dependable results, long term. These awards also illustrate how we’re helping customers adapt to the challenges being seen in every sector, from healthcare and housing, to education, retail and logistics.”
