Mark Joycemade his debut appearance at the Crucible at the start of this year’s World Snooker Championship, facing defending champion, Ronnie O’Sullivan. Although he didn’t make it through, Mark said he was thrilled to have had the experience of playing at the Crucible and is determined to qualify and come back next year.


e will continue to make the most of his own personal, purpose-designed training

facility to help improve his performance. It is here that he constantly records and plays back his training sessions using the high specification CCTV system that was specified and supplied by ESP. Working from photographs,

required dimensions and specific requirements that Mark had supplied, ESP’s system designer, Matt Tighe, created a number of 3-D drawings of how the system would look and how it would operate to capture the details that Mark required. Products from ESP’s Rekor IP CCTV range were chosen to provide Mark with the optimum solution. A total of four cameras were installed, with one acting as a security measure to cover

the facility as a whole, and the other three positioned at various locations within the room so that all angles of the snooker table are covered. The IP CCTV kit utilised consists of a

1TB hard drive, with capacity to provide a continuous recording time of 7 days; 4 x 20m pre-made leads for wiring the cameras; 2 x 2MP 3.6mm IP rated Dome Cameras; 2 x 5MP 2.8mm Wide Angle View Mini Dome Cameras. Set up required the connection of the NVR to Mark’s flat screen TV using a HDMI cable, to allow for HD 1080p viewing of the cameras. Mark also has the opportunity for remote viewing via an internet connection between the NVR and modem.
