Simplify evidence gathering where detailed step-by-step information is crucial and ensuring no detail is missed.
What is Command and Control?
The purpose of Command and Control is to give clients the capacity to easily toggle between hundreds of surveillance technologies with minimal transactional friction using a single display interface.
How does it work?
Enhancing existing hardware
The benefits of digital surveillance can be enjoyed using existing analogue CCTV hardware, so that upscaling visual surveillance capabilities does not require a wholesale and costly replacement of existing equipment.
Be prepared for difficult situations
For optimal visual oversight, monitors and media wall components can be configured to best suit specific scenarios: public events, day and night time periods or post-emergency response situations can trigger specific display configurations, so that control rooms are best prepared to respond to incidents.
Visual surveillance capabilities can be supplemented by ‘outbound’ and ‘inbound’ audio. Users can pre-record audio messages which will be played at the scene of an incident once an alarm has been triggered; and recorded audio can be streamed to the control room.
Aiding law enforcement
Should an incident arise, control room operators can upscale camera resolution to 25fps for a refined view of recorded events. Also, control room operators can retrieve and disclose recorded footage while capturing and displaying images in real time.
Controlling data access
To help information handlers comply with statutory requirements, access hierarchies can be programmed to ensure that only specified personnel can access recorded data.
Where is it used?
“It was important that we selected a command and control system that was both easy to use and simple to navigate. With VIEWSCAPE’S intuitive navigation and menu structure, backed by a comprehensive reporting function, our operators are now free to employ more of their time being effective in their primary role, rather than being tied up with generating reports.”

In 2010, Boots UK, an established supplier of consumer goods, overhauled its national CCTV control room. The company’s surveillance equipment was degrading along with its ability to ensure its premises were safe.
