Idyllic Dorset Coast

Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole are situated along the idyllic Dorset coastline in the South of England. With seaside activities a clear attraction to the area in summer; beyond the beach one can enjoy visiting museums, galleries, parks and gardens. Furthermore, Bournemouth hosts the annual multiple award-winning Bournemouth Air Festival, which has entertained nearly 10.5 million people since 2008.

Alongside the popular tourist activities affiliated with the region, Bournemouth offers two universities, both of which located in Poole, and a professional football club, AFC Bournemouth who are known as the Cherries.

One of the Best Coastal Regions

Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole (BCP) council have ambition to establish the local region as one of the best coastal places in the world in which to live, work, invest and play. Utilising the potential of the beautiful coastline, BCP council believe the region is the ideal place for people and businesses to inhabit due to the vibrancy of the community and strength of the economy. Moreover, the council understands the importance of safety and security, employing CCTV to help prevent and reduce crime, public disorder, and anti-social behaviour.

Firm Commitment to Customer Service

Chroma Vision were established in 2001 with the aim to provide reliable and cost-effective support on security systems, coupled with high standards of technical ability and a firm commitment to customer service. This is still the ethos today and has resulted in continued success within public space security surveillance systems, providing the experience and expertise required for BCP council.

Extreme Coastal Conditions

The geographical location of the three sites poses extreme conditions, especially for coastal facing CCTV cameras, which will have to endure corrosive salt-water environments. Following years of success using Redvision PTZ cameras, Chroma Vision continue to install the reliable, rugged X-Series range including the X2 Combat, X3 Storm and X4 Commander PTZ cameras. With ONVIF compliance and full integration with a host of VMS platforms, the range has been the ideal solution for BCP council.

Redvision CCTV Manufactures Rugged CCTV Solutions

Redvision has a unique heritage in CCTV manufacturing and the Redvision brand is synonymous with rugged CCTV solutions for tough locations. The X2 Combat and X4 Commander PTZ cameras are manufactured marine-grade as standard, with a die-cast aluminium body which is anodised before being powder coated. For an ultra-rugged camera requirement, the X3 Storm PTZ camera boasts a 316 stainless steel camera body designed to withstand the toughest of environments. Furthermore, to ensure high definition recorded images in all conditions, the X-Series PTZ range has a long-life, tooled soft silicone wiper as standard, keeping the lens clear of water and debris.

Rugged Exterior, Superb Picture Quality

Not only is the X-Series PTZ range mechanically tough, but the superb image quality matches the rugged exterior. Utilising the latest in sensor technology, each camera boasts a low-light progressive scanning CMOS sensor to provide fantastic night-time footage. The addition of infrared (IR), up to an astonishing 500m detection, provides line-of-site adaptive illumination in areas of no light. Optional dual IR and white light illumination enables 24/7 high-definition colour images, while giving operators the option of overtly deterring intruders by utilising the powerful white light.

A Compliant and Resilient Solution

Aaron Pardy, Chroma Vision’s South Coast Area Manager, comments “the coastal environment poses a particularly harsh environment for CCTV cameras but having worked with Redvision for many years the product quality has been top draw. In addition, the customer and technical support Redvision provide is second to none, providing the perfect technology partner with which to supply into BCP council.”
