Adata was founded in 2002, originating from an IT background with over 20 years’ experience, the company migrated into the evolving digital security market, where technologies were converging with the release of Digital Video recorders, replacing traditional analogue tape based solutions. As an early adopter of digital based security solutions, Adata was quickly recognised as a leading innovator, manufacturer and supplier of professional surveillance solutions.
As an industry pioneer there was a dynamic and passion to introduce ground breaking products and solutions that would enhance the way CCTV was used and the results it delivered. Early achievements included becoming the 1st manufacturer to provide a DVR, complete with integrated CD writer, allowing evidence to be removed digitally and direct from a DVR.
Adata was also the first company to introduce an H.264 real time recorder into the UK market, all of which have now become industry standard.
Since the inauguration of Adata, it has become one of the most prominent figures in the security market, supplying in excess of 25 countries worldwide, spanning 4 continents.
Closed Circuit Television systems have become a major aspect in improving many companies' security measures in the last decade. As technology continually advances improvements and cost reductions in the microprocessor have made CCTV control affordable for large and small businesses alike whilst improving systems performance.
From a simple black and white system with one camera, viewed via one monitor - to a multi-camera colour system viewed and controlled from a remote site over a computer network... most businesses can benefit from the features of CCTV.
Integration with other security systems is becoming more and more popular with CCTV cameras being connected to Access Control and Intruder Alarm systems for a variety of reasons. For instance; when an employee gains access through a security door a local camera can be set to automatically zoom in and record the employee, or bring the view up full screen on a security monitor. Connection to other systems such as time and attendance can take snapshots of employees as they register their attendance. Effectively this stops people from registering as somebody else.
Cameras vary from the traditional fixed units on wall or ceiling brackets or enclosed in weather proof housings to miniature board cameras which can be mounted on almost anything imaginable. CCTV is becoming more and more popular for covert operations.
Controllable dome cameras are becoming more cost effective and are packed with the latest features which manufacturers are not building into conventional models. These units can be set to carry out pre-programmed tours of their coverage areas. They can also have specified pre-set views which can over-ride a tour or a static view if an alarm condition is received from a detection device, e.g. movement detector or input from another system.
