Barron McCann - Delivering Service Excellence


Barron McCann’s state of the art IP CCTV Systems and Video Management Systems (VMS) open up a wide range of quality loss prevention solutions and Video Analytic capabilities.

 In the Retail Sector, the application of CCTV has traditionally been limited to basic surveillance, with many systems still centred on analogue cameras and recorders.

 However, the migration to IP based cameras (IP CCTV) has now reached a tipping point – retailers need to maximise profit and minimise loss in order to compete in an aggressive marketplace, and also get the greatest business value from the data available on their systems. 

Disadvantages of Legacy CCTV SystemsAdvantages of IP CCTV Systems

Benefits of IP CCTV in Retail

 Greatly improved quality of images – Far more likely to be acceptable as evidence assisting  in securing a conviction.

Access CCTV system from remote sites – Lower costs and better information sharing, accessable by PC client, web interface, or smart phone.

Sophisticated viewing and reviewing facilities – Powerful features to swiftly access and review activity, as well as highlighting key information.

Open VMS platform allows addition of further Video Analytics applications – Access to wide range of applications such as LPR (Licence Plate Recognition), People/Zone Counters, heat tracking, integration with ePOS systems, etc.

Centralised monitoring of some or all of estate – Not only for security purposes but also marketing and planning.

Integration with Smartphones – Provides push/pull video so shop floor guards can feedback incidents to the control room, images/clips can be sent to mobile staff.

Support for legacy analogue devices – These can be connected to the VMS, lowering the cost of adoption and allowing a transition to IP cameras over time.

Wide range of solutions, whatever the size – Whether a small corner store or a multinational retailer, there is an IP CCTV solution to meet your requirements.
