Reliance High-Tech, part of the Reliance Security Group, have installed Sanyo cameras on the Royal Yacht Britannia.
Nine Sanyo VCC-9612P cameras were used on the vessel and in the adjacent visitor centre at the Port of Leith, Edinburgh, as part of a CCTV system at the visitor attraction. Since her decommissioning the Royal Yacht Britannia has made Leith her final home. The ship and visitor centre are open to the general public and provide facilities to learn about the history of the world?s most famous yacht which travelled over a million miles in the 40 years she served the Royal Family. David Haswell of Reliance High-Tech says: ?We were obviously very pleased to have been awarded this prestigious contract. Sanyo dome-shaped cameras were chosen because the customer wanted us to recommend cameras that were unobtrusive but nevertheless could offer the best possible performance. The Sanyo VCC-9612P cameras are small and aesthetically attractive. Equally important they come with a veri-focal lens, a pan and tilt facility and a revolving unit. This means that if the customer should at any time wish to change the layout of the centre or move one of the displays, this could be done without having to incur the cost and inconvenience of relocating one or more of the cameras.” The video images provided by the cameras are monitored and recorded at a control room on the yacht. Alison Dow, Visitor Services Manager for Britannia says: ?We want to ensure that everyone who visits the centre is safe and secure as well as ensuring that theft is minimised. The CCTV system provides our security personnel with a discreet but extremely valuable tool to monitor what is occurring around the centre without encroaching on the enjoyment of our visitors.?
