OXFORD STREET CAMERA - © Picture Perfect cctv Ltd
For example, in the Oxford Street area, one camera could be located behind an upper floor office window overlooking Regent Street to capture both sides of the street ; another camera could be positioned in the ticket office at the underground station; while yet another camera could be positioned in a shop premises to cover not only everybody entering the shop but also pedestrians passing by!
Each camera is attached to a laptop or pc, and therefore by simply inserting a broadband adapter into the computer, the live camera scene and recorded images can be viewed from each location via the internet! An operator who wishes to quickly view or retrieve images from a number of camera locations can therefore do so without moving from the central office.
This enables images of suspects to be viewed and retrieved quickly for the purposes of law enforcement as soon as a crime has been reported.
(Images on this page were taken with a Canon Powershot S2iS camera).
