*Okinawa knows Security and IT*
The security market today is a bewildering array of offerings, a hodgepodge of products and solutions. To find the optimal choice and design the best-suited solution, technical staff need full and complete information about available products and solutions. More importantly, they know that the “proof is in the pudding”: the best proof of marketing promises is found in real-world installations. Nowadays, modern security deployments require both security specialists and IT specialists for a successful completion of any project. Here is where Okinawa Consulting comes in.
Okinawa is specialized in network video surveillance infrastructures. Most installations are still running on analog technology, while network video solutions offer the following benefits:
- Remote accessibility
- Easy, future-proof integration
- Scalability and flexibility
- Distributed intelligence
- Proven technology
Since a couple of seminars we organized in 2009, now also other security integrators started to believe in the application of mega-pixel technology and offering this to their customers as well.

We service both medium and large organizations. The solutions we offer to these type of organizations start from 16 cameras, and can scale to hundreds of cameras. Through turn-key projects we deliver an integrated solution consisting of a myriad of technologies, including mega pixel and HD cameras, specialized video storage servers, structured network cabling, wireless networks, and solar energy equipment for remote installations.
Okinawa’ approach always starts with a functional requirements analysis (“what do you want to see, in what detail”), and a site survey. The collected information in combination with other information (i.e. the retention time of the video images, building and perimeter maps, etc) will be translated in a preliminary design and a technical requirements document. This document forms the base to determine the choice of camera brand/models, video management software, video storage equipment, and the wired/wireless network mix.
Open Platforms and Integration
At the center of our designs we always include Open Platform Video Management Systems (VMS) and Physical Security Integrated Systems (PSIM). Benefits of Open Platforms include the use of almost all camera brand and models, and the seamless integration of the video platform with other security technologies like Burglar Alarm, Access Control, Fire Alarm, Hazardous Material Detectors, Panic Buttons, etc.
Equipment Installation and System Integration
Okinawa Consulting is a turnkey technology integrator, with expertise in full deployment of new IP-based video surveillance systems or converting existing analog or CCTV systems. Okinawa Consulting designs, recommends, sells, and installs both stand-alone infrastructures as camera systems to enable video hosting, with successfully implemented solutions in the financial, telecommunication, transportation, petrochemical, hospitality and gaming industry.
