Poor quality CCTV prevents ID of London looters

It is a pity that poor picture quality from the many CCTV systems in London is affecting the positive identification of looters. For the police to just release 15 images today is surely a reflection of this.

Furthermore the burning of so many buildings has destroyed the CCTV systems – this could have been avoided had the CCTV systems considered resilience in their design. If resilience had been considered when these systems were designed the video images would have been recorded off site and would have been valuable evidence for the identification and prosecution of the arsonists.

CCTV as ever is all about the image quality and we take a closer look at the benefits that IP based CCTV can bring along with Megapixel cameras that improve image quality in the article “CCTV image Quality is everything”.

    Im not going to say what everybody else has already acknowledged, however I do wish to comment in your information of the topic. Youre actually properly-informed. I cant think about how lots of this I merely wasnt conscious of. Thanks for bringing extra knowledge to this topic for me. Im truly grateful and actually impressed.

  2. I’m not sure that the security camera quality is to blame, but in fact that most of the rioters were people the police had no knowledge off, just wanting to gain free stuff.
