#1 Our Technology is the best!


Remote access is a standard feature in camera systems nowadays, but it's not their primary objective. Nonetheless, our clients have been remotely accessing their security cameras since the days of flip phones and dial-up internet. Our unwavering focus on remote access has facilitated the faster evolution of our system than internet capabilities.

The AVM NVR systems we provide ensure smooth and immediate video delivery in real-time from any place across the globe. By comparing our apps to those of other camera systems, you'll notice the distinction instantly. Merely possessing internet access or a phone app is insufficient. Your security cameras' software and hardware quality will be essential, especially in critical situations.

Find your video fast

Security camera systems often leave you with a video search that is almost impossible due to their limited hardware and confusing software. Platinum CCTV was founded over 20 years ago to address this issue and we have never looked back since. Our systems are designed to give you lightning-fast access to your video visually. The AVM NVRs allow you to scan through days, weeks or even months of video in a matter of seconds, even remotely.

With this, security cameras can now be used for far more than just security purposes. Our clients utilize their cameras to gather more data about what's happening around their homes or business, enabling them to manage their facilities and people more effectively. The cameras are designed to work for you, not the other way around, a core principle that has guided us since the beginning. The rest of the industry has yet to catch up to us still to this day.

When video is easy to find, that video is useful

The Best Quality Video

Our AVM NVRs offer better quality than competing recorders, even when connected to the same cameras. This is due to the enhanced processing capabilities and software of our NVRs. While many systems advertise based on video resolution, this is only part of the story. Video quality during screen movement is determined by bitrate, which is where our NVRs excel.

Most DVRs and NVRs are standalone devices that are easy to spot - they resemble old-school VCRs or DVD players. Regrettably, these recorders were obsolete even before they were marketed. They have very little processing power, as demonstrated by their inadequate cooling systems. In computing, more processing power equals more heat, requiring more cooling.

The latest Intel processors, RAM, and software power our AVM NVRs, offering tens of thousands of times more processing power than standalone NVRs and DVRs. With exceptional processing power and software, the most significant difference is the video quality due to bitrate. This is why security footage can be clear until there's movement on the screen, resulting in blocky and pixelated video. Our systems at Platinum CCTV are designed to deliver the maximum bitrate that today's high-definition cameras can provide.

Our AVM System can record at the full bitrate, framerate, color depth and resolution provided by the cameras, giving you better quality without even upgrading your cameras

Find Vehicles and People Quickly

Lightning-fast is how some of our customers describe it. With our AVM system and CMS4 software, along with the latest generation of HD IP Cameras that come with A.I. capabilities, you can easily scan through days or weeks of video footage to identify animals, individuals or vehicles within designated zones. This technology is unparalleled in the industry.

Our A.I. technology enables the camera and NVR system to differentiate between ordinary motion and the presence of animals, individuals or vehicles. While our video scanning is swift, it cannot compare to the power of VCA (Video Content Analysis) in combination with A.I. cameras. A.I. allows the NVR to continue recording all motion and maintain a database of all animal, human and vehicle events in each specified zone, resulting in instant access to search and alert capabilities.

Our NVRs deliver, where others give only empty promises

Find Vehicles Instantly based on License plate

Our new License Plate cameras, when paired with our AVM NVR system, are favored by many clients. They can capture license plates at speeds of up to 75 MPH in complete darkness, and also read and save the data to your database for quick searching later. With this convenient technology, you can easily monitor when people come and go from your establishment.

Security is always a priority, especially so in todays society. By utilizing our ANPR LPR Cameras, you can receive alerts when particular vehicles enter your parking lot, before their occupants even access the facility. This feature can prove vital in unsafe scenarios. Take advantage of this technology, which is yet to be adopted by several police departments.

Smart Camera Alerts

Although most systems support alerting, many users turn them off soon after enabling them due to constant notifications from their camera caused by even the slightest movements, such as the wind blowing. This is because most systems rely on video motion to trigger alerts, lacking the processing power or hardware for complex VCA analysis on their video. However, our NVR systems are equipped with more processing power and advanced software, allowing for more intelligent alerts with minimal false positives.

Our approach to camera system design is to be proactive, not reactive. By utilizing our AVM NVR software, we can configure your system to alert you when someone or something is in a restricted area. With our cutting-edge 8th generation HD IP cameras, which include built-in A.I. capabilities, we can differentiate between people, vehicles, animals, and other motion on the screen, guaranteeing that you only receive alerts when needed.

At Platinum CCTV, we are experts in Smart Camera Alerting, we've been doing it for 20 years

Lifetime Technical Support

Our ongoing remote technical support for security camera systems

I look forward to working on more projects with them in the future."
