AD Network Video introduces enhanced high definition IP video surveillance solution for food processing sector

01 August 2014

Security surveillance specialist AD Network Video is introducing its enhanced integrated HD IP video solution to the food processing sector in August.

Virtual NVR delivers high definition IP video images for evidential purposes to directly monitor food manufacturing processes in a completely secure way.

Jamie Horastead, business development manager responsible for AD Network Video and the Virtual NVR Solution, comments: “Ensuring food is free from contamination and that processes follow guidelines for suppliers is more than a quality control issue. It can be a PR issue that affects bottom line. Customers want to know that standards are followed. If not, there is the potential for real damage to customer relations and loyalty.”

The issue was highlighted by a campaign in 2011 showing the lack of procedure at many abattoirs pushed leading supermarkets such as M&S and the Co-Op into taking action, insisting on installing CCTV at suppliers.

The Virtual NVR solution intelligently distributes video storage across single or multiple locations, with IP cameras recording and storing images on the in-camera server. These will carry on recording even in the event of a network outage as the devices operate as if they were standalone systems resulting in no single point of failure.

The evidential recordings are easily accessible locally or from the control room via a single user interface and are exported in compliance with police and home office guidelines. Recordings can be archived and managed from a central location driving greater efficiency and flexibility in locating and retrieving video from multiple sites, which is very useful for supermarkets.

Jamie Horastead states: “AD Network Video Solutions offers supermarkets and food retailers as well as food manufacturers greater flexible and scalable qualities, including transcoding for reviewing high resolution footage from remote locations.”

Pauline Norstrom, chief operating officer of AD Group, of which AD Network Video is a part, comments: “Virtual NVR illustrates the continuing commitment to bringing to market uniquely beneficial and effective video security management solutions.

“Our in-house R & D capability continues to underpin our industry reputation for innovation.

“In a vastly undifferentiated IP video market where price and not value can be attractive to buyers, AD wins out over and above the "glorified web cam" by combining effective video transmission, database integration and HD storage mitigation in a way that no competitor can match. As a result the food processing sector will recognise that we have something special here that will help them improve security, increase ROI and lower cost of ownership.”
