Dedicated Micros and AD Network Video -- both part of the AD Group of Companies -- are taking an
innovative approach to exhibiting at IFSEC this year with the main feature of the stand being their new
state of the art, articulated demonstration vehicle.

together with the latest innovations from the AD Group, and are now at the fingertips of integrators,
installers, specifiers and end users in the UK all year round.
New products on show include additions to the CamVu IP camera range including the CamVu 720 dome
and box cameras which feature exceptional low light performance, high definition resolution with up to two
megapixels of on-board recording to micro SD card, transmission on alarm and multiple video streams in
MPEG4, JPEG and H.264 simultaneously to meet bandwidth requirements, while maintaining a
differentiated high quality record rate for use as evidence.

which leverages the inherent de-warping capability of the Group’s ChipWrights ViSP, combined with the
capability of it’s five megapixel sensor. Multiple independent streams are managed seamlessly, with no

The new CamVu IP cameras add to Dedicated Micros growing range of easy to use IP video products
including the IFSEC Awards finalist, the SD Excel Closed IPTV, the hybrid DVR/NVR capable of
recording, streaming and displaying multiple HD IP cameras seamlessly alongside a mix of analogue
cameras. The IFSEC Awards finalist, the high definition NetVu Console is at work displaying multi-media
video content around the stand while providing demonstration points which illustrate the seamless
integration of IP and analogue cameras within a single, embedded user interface -- a key capability which
has been inherent in NetVu Connected products for many years.
Offering high definition recording and powerful re-display performance, the NV8 joins the DV-IP,
enterprise server/decoder range, boasting an impressive 300Mbits of video streaming bandwidth,
delivering a flexible configuration solution operating as either a real-time HD/hybrid multi-screen decoder
for high performance video wall deployment or as a dedicated real time encoder for recording and
transmission of both analog and HD IP cameras.
Strategic partner, BBV's Pick-a-Point video management system forms part of the AD Group's enterprise
video management system, which offers a user friendly, map based touch screen workstation, scalable to
large enterprise solutions. Compatible with NetVu Connected video products, Pick-a-Point provides
seamless management of hybrid systems incorporating crucial security features such as alarm handling,
video download and evidence burning, integration with 3rd parties such as GDX, Protec, Commend and
AD Group's patented Emergency Messaging System. New to Pick-a-Point at IFSEC, is the integration of
Dedicated Micros Point and Go, PTZ capability which allows the operator to select the area of interest on
screen with a simple click of the mouse, a perfect solution to PTZ control over IP networks.
Continuing it’s focus on vertical markets, AD Network Video strengthens it’s Fire and Transport market

operates in practice.
The TransVu mobile video recorder takes center stage in an innovative motor racing display, showing off
it’s performance in extreme conditions. Testing TransVu on AD Group’s Le Mans Sportscar has played a
significant part in making the product robust and reliable to meet the demands of the transport sector, and
when combined with vehicle telemetry and telematics data, offers a significant return on investment to the
