CCTV Surveillance Technology Patents

Major Step Change in CCTV security and surveillance

Best PTZ Camera - 360 CCTV Camera Technology Patents

Gigapixel Analytics 360° CCTV Camera

The CCTV and surveillance industry-standard deterrent and automated security and situational awareness


Viseum UK holds CCTV Technology patents that are granted globally for the major step change in CCTV security and surveillance. This invention has solved the many problems with standalone CCTV security systems, manned CCTV surveillance systems and manned guarding patrols.

The Viseum IMC Camera and Software Technology Services are internationally regulated. This maintains the success of Viseum’s Disruptive Technology throughout the world. What this means for our customers is, Viseum and its Certified Corporate Partners are the only organisations that can ensure end users will always receive support for such security assets, and throughout the life of their security estate.

Patent Infringing Products – Substantial end-user risks

There are always substantial risks for customers purchasing Illegal patent copies. Only false economics can drive such uninformed decisions. Worse, this could also irreparably harm the service that such a customer is employed to deliver. For example, it is becoming increasingly common for members of the public, and even criminal defence lawyers, to discredit public safety and law enforcement CCTV systems. This is because authorities have not complied with legislation. Also, Viseum has completed a full analysis of all patent infringing products:

Supply and operations

  • Unnecessarily draining the customer’s operational budget. Quality compromised patent copies are designed and priced to only make profits from its warranty service. The whole unit will need to be swapped out for any maintenance. This relies on frequent, lengthy and costly downtimes.
  • The risk of product recall due to illegal use is very real. It is Viseum’s intent to target all businesses dealing with infringing products. This also means there will always be an increased risk of product availability with its traders going out of business.

Training and support

  • The camera hardware will be produced independently of Video Analytics Software. This creates compatibility and in-life issues with camera protocols and device drivers. All of these issues need cross-company collaboration to resolve.
  • Technical and operational training and support will need to be provided separately by each software and CCTV camera vendor.


  • The number and arrangement of cameras will have little or no configuration for coverage. Also, each camera sensor will not be selectable for optical requirements.
  • The technical capability to collect and use key evidence needed to protect and secure their security estate will be negatively affected.

Strong Defensive Patent Qualities:

Value of Viseum's CCTV Technology Patents

In 2008 an international PLC manufacturing video security products infringed our technology patents with a new product. As part of our standard legal process, we made their suppliers, customers and shareholders aware of this illegal trading. Their multibillion-dollar PLC customer/reseller immediately and formally declared their ‘cease and desist’, and the infringing PLC’s share value fell by over 90% whilst offloading their entire stock of products targeting the security industry.

In 2014 one of our largest competitors invested over $1 million trying to legally compete with Viseum, but failed. One of the world’s leading intellectual property practices undertook an extensive analysis of the validity of Viseum’s granted European Patent EP1579399. These experts applied their vast depth of knowledge in physics, electronics, engineering and computer science to probe the novelty and inventive steps of the Viseum IMC Camera. The extent of this investigation compared Claims 1 to 9 with 3 inventions dating from before Viseum’s patent was granted in 2002. The conclusion of this extensive exercise resulted in the British Patent Examiner stating that in their opinion claims 1 to 9 of Viseum’s patent are both novel and inventive over this suggested prior art.

The Viseum® Brand


The Viseum brand is recognized for its patented configuration of fixed and moving cameras in the same unit. People who see an image of a Viseum camera configuration naturally think of Viseum being the internationally patent-protected CCTV brand. Any other brand of this configuration is seen as an illegal quality-compromised copy, that generates more business for the Viseum UK Group. We operate a formal Branding Policy which is an integral part of the Viseum business.

Viseum’s International Technology Patents


click to download Viseum's European Technology PatentsOur patents were initially filed for the invention of the most practical, cost-effective and aesthetic solution to mass population people surveillance. When compared to any other solution, this patent helps win citywide security projects, typically worth $20 million initially and eventually in excess of $80 million excluding ongoing revenues.


click to download Viseum's U.S. Technology PatentsViseum’s international technology patent portfolio is testament to the company being the world’s leading brand for solving the problem of wide-area CCTV security and surveillance, as well as being the leader in the video content analysis (VCA) marketplace. These technology patent inventions provide 20 years of protection. Any non-Viseum branded IMC camera system is noticeably inferior and an illegal copy in breach of international law.


CCTV Surveillance Patents


The key benefit of Viseum’s technology patented 360 Security Camera method is the use of fixed and moving cameras co-located on the same common structure. This also benefits Viseum’s iVOS Video Analytics Software Technology Services by constantly gathering and analysing the real-time and historical activity of suspects from fixed cameras. This continually predicts accurately where, and how far, to automatically direct the optical zoom of the PTZ Camera, no matter how many suspects are being followed, which separate directions they travel, or if they speed up, slow down, or change direction. This system therefore consistently captures close-up situational awareness and court-quality evidence of single and multiple incidents.

Our surveillance technology patent invention portfolio includes:

European Patent – EP 1 579 399

United States of America Patent – US 7,952,608 B2


Surveillance Technology Patent-Protected Markets

Viseum has invested heavily in the protection and policing of its intellectual property rights (IPR). Central to our business is the commercial protection we provide our partners in sharing these secured markets. We commit to the policing of this IPR in the following way: as with any patent 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 legal action with the suppliers of such goods.
