Architecture

The tipping point has arrived where IP sales have started to outstrip sales of Analogue systems on new projects. This trend is customer-driven, rather than being sold by installers. Customers are demanding increased image quality, flexibility and functionality on their systems. Traditional installers on the other hand are struggling to deal with information technology and network systems which are core components of modern IP systems

Modern IP systems by their nature far more complicated that the older analogue systems. The vastly improved picture quality highlights flaws in a system more evidently making up front architecture design even more important.

All our clients require a degree of certainty in what is being delivered in their new camera system. We have developed a flip chart of options based on picture quality in varying lighting conditions and common scenarios such as shop floors, car parks, corridors etc, which allows the client to choose from a menu and choose exactly what they want. This in turn feeds back into cost savings where clients may choose basic coverage in less critical areas than others. Finally, we bring our real life and practical experience to the conversation and assist the client in finalizing their decisions. Ultimately the client knows what they are getting. No surprises.

The Multisys approach to IP System architecture

When designing the architecture of a new IP system, Multisys pays particular attention to;

  • Client requirements
  • Functional requirements including risk assessment
  • Camera placement and angles of view
  • Lighting conditions
  • Visibility of cameras – Overt or covert
  • Network layout and throughput
  • Appropriate storage and robustness of recorders
  • Access to live/recorded video with sufficient processing power to meet client requirements
  • Fail-safe mechanisms
  • Integration with third party systems such as intruder and fire alarms, access control, building management, POS, cash counting facilities, and third party integration in general.
  • Controlled distribution of video and remote viewing
  • Cost savings at installation time, reduction of complexity and amount of cabling requirements, number of cameras, licensing, loading, ongoing maintenance overhead, ease of training and ease of system use for target environment.
  • Legacy Analog reuse and integration.
