The head of CCTV surveillance for this police force also said, "Viseum's technical capability is unquestionable. We always remember Viseum above anyone else for their main strength of listening to us to develop their innovation."

Viseum’s Town Centre Regeneration Intelligent CCTV Camera

Criminals are learning of a new Town Centre Regeneration camera. It is used for automated crime detection and prevention. A camera that delivers the strongest long-term deterrent by catching criminals red-handed. One of the London authorities to experience the Viseum’s IMC (Intelligent Moving Camera or 360 CCTV Camera) is the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames.  They report the Viseum 360 CCTV Camera is an instant success in clearing up trouble in their reported crime hotspots.

Stuart Thompson, Viseum UK Group President and inventor of the best in class camera technology, said, “We’re incredibly excited about the 360 CCTV Camera and our customers are too. We have developed the multitasking camera that doesn’t just tick all the boxes – it actually records and prevents crimes, unlike traditional PTZ cameras that simply face the wrong way most of the time and have become a laughing stock with hardened criminals.”

In Richmond, the borough’s first Viseum 360 CCTV Camera captured high-quality evidence from over 150 m away This was of criminals preparing themselves for a ‘day’s work’ by putting on the tools of their trade – the hoods and gloves they would then use to try and commit crime anonymously. This is just one of the scenarios where the Viseum 360 Security Camera really comes into its own.

Town Centre Regeneration Caught Criminal Red-Handed“Groups of men putting on black hoods and gloves in broad daylight is a very unusual activity,” explains Stuart Thompson, “and it is certainly something that CCTV operators and the police would be interested in. Yet standard PTZ Cameras would simply miss everything unless they had the good fortune of pointing the right way with an operator controlling and watching the scene. With the Viseum 360 CCTV Camera, we pre-programme the intelligence so that a range of unusual activities like this are not only recognized, but are exactly the specific activity our cameras are ‘trained’ to zoom in on.”

The Manager of the Richmond CCTV scheme said, “Viseum’s IMC camera had only been deployed for a couple of weeks. Just after a burglary was reported, the video caught these criminals were caught red-handed. The quality of the evidence was excellent. Despite it being taken automatically from over 150 m away. Also, the suspects being disguised in hoods, the police were even able to identify them leaving with stolen goods.”

Town Centre Regeneration - Redeployable CCTV camera“A standard PTZ Camera would, unfortunately, be ineffective in this and many similar scenarios where multiple areas and activities are required to be monitored. The local area has had no reported crime or antisocial behaviour since. The Viseum 360 CCTV Camera proved very effective in targeting antisocial behaviour and we are in the process of deploying further IMCs in other identified problem areas across the borough.”

Elsewhere, the Viseum IMC has also killed antisocial behaviour problems stone dead. It has immediately had the effect of making criminals realise they were actually being watched. Also making the general public realise they were actually being protected. Unlike previous technologies which often prove so ineffective that criminals disregard them. Most PTZ cameras have already exceeded their life expectancy. Also, through cost and lack of resources, most of these are pointing the wrong way when crimes happen. Viseum presents an unparalleled value for money offering for customers to stay on top of all their camera installations. This is being achieved by replacing or upgrading PTZ Cameras to become Viseum 360 CCTV Cameras, which in turn enables control room staff to spend their time most effectively, maximises overall efficiencies and enables a much more viable solution for CCTV scheme expansion.

Now it’s possible for everyone to be tuned in to the power of the Viseum 360 CCTV Camera and to have well-managed schemes in operation. Local authorities and law enforcement agencies can view real footage at, as well as connecting to a real-time live camera demonstration, and pre-register for forthcoming technology events.

“Our revolutionary 360 CCTV Cameras are killing the problems they are used for stone dead. This is proving a success with local councils and police forces across the country. Including Richmond, where a gang of criminals was recently caught red-handed.”
