Intelligent CCTV Technology Partners
Viseum is the unique and rapidly growing Intelligent CCTV brand, known internationally for its ability to sustain the long term deterrence of CCTV surveillance schemes, by automatically presenting the right amount of high quality intelligent CCTV video evidence to the right person at the right time, no matter where they are allowing them to:
- React quickly and effectively during the course of security threats, and
- Clear up crime efficiently during investigations.
Offering Viseum Intelligent Moving Camera (Viseum IMC) solutions are proven to help win and even bypass tenders by using this approach:
Questions about your CCTV schemes:
- Is your CCTV lacking the ability to produce high quality close-up video when needed?
- Are your current CCTV solutions too expensive to cover all your areas effectively?
- Are any of your CCTV installations failing to provide the strongest available deterrent?
- Do your CCTV installations require live monitoring using costly infrastructures but are still not able to deliver results?
Viseum UK’s intelligent CCTV solutions are proven to deliver the best results and the strongest available deterrent, with the most advanced and the most economical CCTV security to cover all required areas. It has been independently endorsed that it would take at least 5 – 6 times more installations of any other advanced outdoor pan, tilt, zoom or “PTZ camera” solution, or at least 10 of the industry’s latest panoramic megapixel cameras, or a minimum of 200 times more standard fixed camera installations, to provide the level of CCTV security that each Viseum Intelligent Moving Camera or “Viseum IMC” provides without being dependent on any security surveillance operators or CCTV Monitoring infrastructures.
The Viseum outdoor surveillance camera captures close up forensic video evidence of crime in large open space as standard.
- No matter where the site gets broken into.
- No matter where the theft or criminal damage takes place.
When other CCTV cameras do this, it is such a rare occurrence, it makes headline news.
The use of the Viseum IMC:
- Solves the problem of having PTZ cameras used to monitor remote open space sites, but without knowing who is going to use them and where they should be pointed.
- More than doubles the strength of intelligent CCTV security, whilst more than halving the equipment and infrastructure needed to monitor and secure remote sites.
Intelligent CCTV Camera Installation:
Unique Technical Advantages:
Automated Surveillance – All other PTZ camera installations need an operator to catch close-up evidence in open space environments. The Viseum 360 degree camera gives resilience to operator fatigue and remote CCTV infrastructures failing at any time by capturing close-up evidence of events completely automatically.
Multiple Attack and Diversion Tactics – All other PTZ camera installations can only ever see one area at any one time. The Viseum 360 degree camera continues to monitor the entire area in all directions at the same time, to follow all suspects no matter if they speed up, slow down, or change direction, and automatically switches the PTZ in close-up between events that occur at the same time.
Coverage – Each Viseum 360 degree camera automatically protects a vast open space area up to the size of up to 14 football pitches, night and day from just one easy plug-and-play installation.
Local Stored and Central Recordings – The Viseum 360 degree camera captures and locally stores fixed wide contextual view camera evidence together with close-up recording of events, at a higher quality than can be stored remotely over a typical wireless network. For primary use or backup recordings, distributed storage eliminates loss of evidence resulting from a single point of failure.
Investigations Smart Search – Activity in the whole area is indexed by the Viseum outdoor surveillance camera providing the ability to rapidly produce close-up and wide contextual view evidence of events that occurred in certain areas over certain periods of time.
Multi View Playback – All fixed wide contextual view camera evidence can be replayed together with the close-up recorded event, to see what happened all at the same time on the same digital video player.
Viseum outdoor surveillance camera automation makes remote CCTV monitoring a highly efficient option instead of a necessary cost. The unique technical advantages provided by the Viseum 360 degree camera give superior surveillance services for both high security and general CCTV applications. This means that larger areas of more locations for 24/7 remote monitored CCTV schemes, manned response monitored CCTV schemes, and standalone CCTV schemes, all benefit from more effective coverage and performance.
Constant Protection – Business and residential communities see constant protection and potential wrong-doers see long term deterrent.
Crime Clear up – Crime is cleared up and deterred faster, and for longer, than by any other crime reduction initiative.
Privacy Issues – Privacy issues are reduced by the Viseum outdoor surveillance cameras targeting of people for their activity as opposed to the way they look, and depending on the application the images may never actually watched by people unless there is an incident.
Digitally Integrated into Remote Command Control
(central or mobile):
Unique Technical Advantages:
Intelligent Video Wall – The video wall can be intelligently populated with close-up identification (ID) and recognition video evidence of suspects and events of interest as they unfold.
Multi Views – For a complete view of the entire area at the same time, all or any one of the Viseum outdoor surveillance cameras fixed contextual view cameras can be watched and recorded in the central control room at the same time as the operator is following and recording a live event close up with the PTZ.
Crime clear-up and KPI’s – The CCTV operator is more productive than ever before, during an incident, and for rapid investigations after a crime has been committed. This means that fewer CCTV operators are needed to clear up and deter more crime in larger areas of more installations, providing a greater level of CCTV service for less operational expenditure.
CCTV Operator Training – The CCTV operator requires only limited or no additional training depending on application. Searching for, selecting and following suspects with the PTZ camera becomes easier or no longer required because it is completely automated.
To use Viseum’s local DVR requires no additional training because it is seen by the CCTV operator as part of the central control’s existing storage.
Market Opportunities for the Viseum IMC:
Security organisations around the world spend millions each year, many with large numbers of permanent staff, trying to collect suitable surveillance images, searching through days or even months of video for just a few seconds of crucial evidence. The vast majority of these efforts result, daily, in lengthy reports as to why the CCTV evidence available could not be used because the incident did not occur close-up to the CCTV camera, or was missed completely because the camera was pointing the wrong way.
The Viseum IMC is a modular hardware configured multiple camera unit used to simplify the following deployment options:
- Retrofits – replace or upgrade existing permanent installations
- Redeployable – temporary installations such as on street lighting columns
- Rapid deployments – self contained CCTV trailers for temporary events
It is designed for the following applications:
- Populated open space
- Unpopulated multiple or single attack intruder environments
- It is designed for the following environments:
- Large open spaces
- Close proximity areas
It operates as an unmanned standalone camera and can be integrated for operator override when used with:
- 24/7 monitored central control rooms
- Part-time monitored central control rooms
- Manned response central control rooms
- Mobile observation posts
Central to our business is the commercial protection we provide our partners in sharing our secured markets. We have invested heavily in the protection and policing of our intellectual property rights (IPR), to protect our developed markets.
We commit to the policing of this IPR in the following way: As with any infringement, its trade reseller is the primary target for legal action, which is in turn followed up by making the potential user aware of the infringing product’s recall due to its illegal use. This is then followed up with full and complete legal action with the suppliers of such goods. The policy of proactive policing our markets in this way since 2002 has proven so successful that we have only ever identified one infringing party. A PLC entity was found to be trading with infringing goods and they can now no longer sell such goods into our international territories, nor can they secure investment due to this breach.

Most open space CCTV schemes suffer the same problem of most PTZ cameras usually pointing the wrong way when incidents occur. Viseum UK has not only helped solve this problem, but has created new markets where CCTV security schemes are displacing crimes to. By bridging the gap between manned surveillance and standalone unmonitored CCTV schemes, Viseum IMCs’ running costs and unobtrusive operation are making intelligent CCTV in open space areas more feasible for many business and residential communities, whereas old technologies precluded them.
The UK market for Viseum IMC
Crime alone in the UK costs around £45 billion per year yet only 21% of it is cleared up. In the many public areas where random crimes occur, Viseum IMCs are well proven to provide up to 25 times more court quality evidence than any other camera solution. This enhanced surveillance could save the UK economy £billion’s per year in cleared up crime.
In the UK alone, the public open spaces where CCTV evidence of random unpredictable crime is currently being missed, is estimated to number at least 50,000 sites.
The UK PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) and PTZ dome camera market has already reached maturity as a significant component of the intelligent CCTV industry and is central to the protection of open spaces.
The UK VCA (Video Content Analysis) is in its early life and was expected to be the next major development in CCTV because it can be deployed to automatically monitor CCTV cameras. Until now, VCA only used fixed cameras so limiting open space applications, and PTZ cameras have only been effective if members of staff are available to control and monitor them.
Local authorities need help make the most of their CCTV schemes by providing them with cost savings at the same time as improving performance.
The Viseum IMC Solution
To address this need, we have produced a ground breaking patented technology; the convergence of PTZ and VCA technologies, which is now at the heart of an established product range called Viseum Intelligent Moving Cameras (Viseum IMCs), which are designed, developed, built and supported in Great Britain. Until Viseum, VCA only used fixed cameras, so limiting open space applications and PTZ cameras have only been effective if members of staff are available to consistently control and monitor them.
Viseum-driven IMC CCTV is the easiest and most cost efficient method of protecting open spaces with effective intelligent CCTV surveillance. It works with multiple camera units to see everything at once, intelligently moving a PTZ camera to zoom into, follow and record specific activity. Viseum IMCs are well proven to automatically capture crucial evidence that would have been missed with any other solution, by providing greater coverage than multiple fixed camera installations and better performance than intermittently manned moving cameras.
One Market Sector Example – UK Public Open Space
In the UK there are over 1000 towns & cities, covered by around only 350 public space CCTV schemes. Research with CCTV control room managers show that at least 10% of the estimated maximum 60,000 cameras protecting public open space areas are immediate candidates for Viseum IMC upgrades, giving an initial target market of 6,000 Viseum IMC sales in this segment, worth around £30 million.
Just one of the new growth markets for Viseum IMCs is the many public open space areas that suffer crime and anti-social behaviour, but available budget and locality precludes them. There are at least 10,000 such areas (10 per 1000 UK towns and cities). If only 20% of these take up a Viseum IMCinstallation, then this represents an additional 2,000 sales, worth at least £20 million. The majority of troubled ‘hot spot’ open space areas that eventually justify investments in security, typically result in them having CCTV cameras installed and the majority of these can now be Viseum IMC enabled because the benefits over standard PTZ cameras are significant. Viseum products can be deployed in a full range of housings from street lamp based to mobile trailer based housings.
