Bespoke Design

Review a case study of our project with Essex Police.

ClearView manufactures a range of prison cell cameras, specifically designed for installation in police and prison cells and are available in a variety of options:

  • Colour/mono 600TVL with wide-angle 2.6mm auto iris lens
  • Infra-red illumination
  • In-built microphone or Two-way intercom
PTZ camera
Vast experience of mainting and installing CCTV in Custody Suites
Highest level of vandal resistance

Since forming in 1996, ClearView have provided thousands of ligature-free cameras for police forces requiring coverage of cells within custody suites. We were the first company to provide CCTV coverage to 100% of cells at Kilburn Police station in London.

The cameras are provided in specially designed two part “cell” housings and are colour/mono 600 TVL resolution. Cameras have a wide angle 2.6mm auto iris lens. This gives a complete view of the cell which includes the area directly under the camera itself.

In-built “Black” 850nm infra-red illumination is available as a camera option. This leaves the cell in complete darkness at night, as far as the prisoner is concerned, but provides bright illumination for clear video pictures.

The cameras are designed with no sharp protrusions or ligature points and provide the highest level of vandal resistance. They are installed utilising 2 part construction for ease of maintenance

ClearView’s cell cameras are available in two formats; both can be provided with IR illumination and optional microphone.

Video Masking

To protect prisoner privacy, a video mask is available to cover the WC area with the area of mask set according to the size and position necessary for CCTV viewing.

In-built Microphone

High-sensitivity microphones may be built into the camera housing. These do not require batteries or separate mains supplies and will pick up all sounds within a cell.

Two-way Audio

An add-on facility is available that enables a custody sergeant to communicate with each cell via telephone handset or computer at the charge desk. A two way conversation can then be held between the desk and cell.
