Cortech Developments


Cortech Developments specialise in software integration solutions for building, fire and security management systems. We have a proven track record in delivering software development and integrated system solutions for high security environments and critical national infrastructure.

Cortech’s core software suite, Datalog 5, provides smarter interoperability and integration of building, fire and security control technology including CCTV, access control, intruder, perimeter, fire, intercom, staff safety, BMS and energy systems.

Managing building, fire and security operations across multiple sites and complex building environments can be a significant challenge. Extensive sites can often involve the monitoring of thousands of circuits with multiple control systems. These events could be critical life safety situations and require immediate action to limit risk and escalation.

Datalog 5 provides quick and effective real time monitoring and control of events. System warnings, events and alarms are all clearly identified [with pre-determined event help information], prioritised, graphically located and visually verified with automatic CCTV video to enable a more efficient and accountable response.

Cortech Developments ‘holistic’ software solutions can assist you in reducing costs and risk, improving operational efficiency and providing greater situation awareness.



Our focus is to deliver the highest quality of IP video images anytime, anywhere.

Our focus is – to reduce storage costs and network strain without compromising
video quality.

Quiet scenes with little or no movement require a lower bitrate. By intelligently distinguishing between noise and relevant information, such as movement, intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR) reduces bitrate by up to 50%. Because noise is reduced at the source during image capture, the lower bitrate does not compromise on video quality. With iDNR, our focus is to significantly reduce storage costs, and lessen network strain by only using bandwidth when needed.

Our focus is – to provide you with perfect exposure every time. Fluctuations in backlight and front light can ruin your images. To achieve the perfect picture in every situation, intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE) automatically adjusts the exposure of the camera. It offers superb front light compensation and incredible backlight compensation by automatically adapting to changing light conditions. With iAE, our focus is to provide you with perfect exposure every time.

Our focus is – never to lose track of objects of interest. In video surveillance, moving objects are usually the most significant objects of interest. Intelligent Tracking (iTracking) automatically tracks moving objects based on predefined alarm rules or a simple click. By intelligently distinguishing between single and multiple reference points, iTracking will provide uninterrupted tracking. Optimal capture of the object of interest is assured by dynamically adjusting the field of view. With iTracking, our focus is never to lose track of objects of interest.
