IndigoVision’s complete end-to-end IP Video technology has been deployed in nine John Lewis department stores, with more to follow.

IndigoVision migrated 9 of the retailer’s stores from analogue CCTV to a digital IP solution, and will now provide CCTV surveillance in three new stores, including a flagship branch in Liverpool.

One hundred and thirty cameras have been installed in John Lewis’s Liverpool store, by Orion Security Solutions, an approved partner of IndigoVision.

Security consultant, Dowling Blunt, advised on the installation, which is designed to protect the retailer from theft, provide staff protection, reduce wastage and comply with health & safety requirements.

In keeping with the high-quality retail environment provided by the store, IndigoVision used unobtrusive and visually pleasing fixed and PTZ IP dome cameras.

IndigoVision’s advanced MPEG-4 compression technology delivers high video quality with a minimum bandwidth and storage requirement, and the company also installed its IP Video and alarm management software, Control Centre.

Paul Newbury, John Lewis’s Development Manager for Business Protection said:
“The features in ‘Control Center’ are very powerful, we particularly like the playback and search tools and the snapshot feature that allows us to capture and print off pictures of suspects in the store”.
