Better Pub surveillance with Megapixel

Changing light levels in pubs tends to be a challenge not always best coped with by surveillance systems.

More and more pubs are being subject to theft, scamming operations and accusations of breaches of health & safety measures. Against this backdrop, publicans are demanding much better quality video surveillance systems but with an eye on price. Traditional box cameras are becoming less popular as they don’t blend in to surroundings. Dome cameras are the preferred choice for wall & ceiling mounting options. 720p and 1080p Dome cameras cover wide areas giving 1 million to 2.1 million pixels respectively. This allows for sharp detail even when zoomed in, whether during daylight hours or during night time. Using megapixel cameras over tills, gives a sharp image of what notes are transacted, so any shortfalls when cashing up can be isolated using special Transact tools in the Video Management Software. This Transact tool synchronises the video footage with the till receipt, so the POS system is an intelligent video data driven analysis

tool. They can isolate the video footage quickly by searching by transaction type e.g. Laser. This syncs all Laser transactions on the till with the corresponding video footage. This system has helped many a Publican to amicably resolve customer disputes over allegations of incorrect cash back given. The famous traditional music pub in Westport - Matt Molloy’s – recently upgraded its surveillance system to an IP system. The pub has some very low lit areas and the internal day/night dome cameras are delivering superior results than the previous analog system as you can see in the stills below.
