Security begins with surveillance for most companies — video cameras that record to one or more computers. Gone are the days when viewing a recorded incident required finding the right tape to load into a VCR. Today, video surveillance systems utilize sophisticated technology to provide the most critical data.

When designing a surveillance system, the certified security technicians at Sound Communications review the full scope of the security requirements and select the best hardware and software to meet the security needs for a single or multi-location facility or campus.
Since your security cameras serve as the “eyes” of your surveillance system, it is imperative to choose the right camera to match each specific application. Today there are many types of cameras available for recording: indoor, outdoor, fixed, pan/tilt/zoom, night vision, vandal-resistant, weatherproof, analog, IP, fisheye, covert, motion detection, color, black-and-white, infrared, high definition. These security cameras are also available in various combinations of these features. Many of the newest security cameras provide additional capabilities like built-in intelligence, analytics and recording.
Video Recording Servers
Once video has been captured by a security camera, the video recording server determines how the video will be processed. Today’s servers are often hybrid and can accept input from both analog and IP cameras. Video recording servers are often administered conveniently through a remote client interface, and can be integrated with Active Directory as well as point-of-sale, access control, intrusion detection, alarm and other systems. Detecting independent incidents, our video recording systems can send email alerts as the incident is in progress.
Video Management & Storage
These hardware and software components enable your security system to protect and manage your assets with monitors, video walls, network attached storage servers and other security operations. Additional benefits include organizing your security videos so the data is searchable and centralizing the management of multiple servers and/or multiple sites.
