CCTV Design Tool

Our older version of CCTV Design Tool became quite popular among of CCTV designers and installers.  To support modern IP cameras we created a new line of CCTV design software called  IP Video System Design Tool (download) that supports both analogue and IP cameras.

Using “IP Video System Design Tool” software, the CCTV designer can ease the design process and eliminate a risk of design errors. The designer loads site/floor plan into the software and then creates objects such as walls, cameras etc in order to get a realistic 3D model of the surroundings.
The software can also estimate the video archive size and the required network bandwidth for IP cameras.

The customer base of IP Video System Design Tool has already crossed the one thousand mark and it is being used by designers to speed up the design process, ease of documentation and minimize risk of errors.
