To celebrate the launch of 'ColourSmart' - our 24/7 colour CCTV camera from Concept Pro we invited local graffiti artist, Hyro to our HQ to create a one-of-a-kind mural.
“The inspiration behind the artwork was the new camera by Concept Pro" said artist Hyro, "the mural depicts ColourSmart mixed with security and elements of CCTV".
Working with Bolton based 'Total Productions', we were able to capture the piece being created from start to finish - which included the full colour imagery still clear and crisp into the early hours of the morning.
Offering crystal clear images day and night, the new 5MP fixed lens turret is a stand out addition to the Concept Pro range. Combining deep learning technology, ColourSmart can drastically reduce false alarms compared to traditional motion detection due to being able to distinguish people and vehicles from other moving objects - therefore alerts are only sent for events that matter most.
It was a delight to welcome Hyro to our offices to create this fantastic piece of art to celebrate the launch of our new range of 24/7 full colour cameras” said our Managing Director, Matt Rushall
“The pandemic has been a tough time for everyone, so when we had the idea to have a mural at our head office to commemorate the launch of the ColourSmart – we didn’t think twice about bringing in a local artist to help boost the sector and showcase the talent that we have within our region.”
“Like everyone, the last year has been difficult and as an artist it has been difficult to find work" Hyro explains "but it’s great to see companies like Videcon supporting local artists and facilitating me to be able to do the thing I’m most passionate about. I enjoyed it and I’m glad how it turned out”.
The work with Hyro is the latest in a number of our local collaborations over the last 12 months and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working with businesses, schools, and care homes throughout Yorkshire and beyond, we provided technology that helped limit the spread of Coronavirus, including; face-mask detection and temperature detection.
Going forward, we aim to support young people in the region by introducing a new apprenticeship scheme. The scheme, which begins in June next month offers young people a chance to gain experience in all aspects of the business covering; Sales, Finance, Marketing, Technical Support, Customer Services, and Operations.
