Hikvision helps secure operations at a leading Food Distribution facility

Hikvision helps secure operations at a leading Food Distribution facility

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 9/9/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Hikvision partnered with Imperial Surveillance, a full-service security company, to protect operations at Midwest Foods, one of the North America's largest food distributors. The project allowed the end-user to upgrade the existing technology to create a hybrid system and a gradual upgrade to digital without significant capital investment. The new technology offered by Hikvision also allowed for increased operational efficiencies, enhanced security, and additional cost savings.

Hikvision's technology was brought in when Midwest Foods called upon Imperial Surveillance to integrate their existing analog cameras into a state-of-the-art digital network. When they decided to add IP cameras in key areas, Hikvision's 3MP EXIR Turret Network Camera, with long-range infrared and three-axis lens adjustment, was the only sensible choice. Hikvision's 960H Hybrid DVR and the eight-channel 7608 Embedded NVR with built-in PoE switch rounded out the installation, making a seamless connection between analog and digital on the production line.

“Hikvision's products have more features and functionality than the competitors',” explained Domenic DiPietra, security consultant at Imperial Surveillance. “The communications capabilities between the cameras and the NVR are impressive, especially when working with a hybrid system. What's more, Hikvision offers ‘plug and play' functionality like nobody else, which makes for a smooth and straightforward installation process.”

Midwest Foods began to notice the benefits of their new system immediately. “The new security system prevents basic theft in a way that the old system couldn't have done.” Dan Tingle, IT Manager for Midwest Foods, affirmed. The new system has also given Midwest Foods a more effective way of monitoring food safety concerns. Midwest's strict guidelines guarantee that their products are void of biological and physical hazards. Video surveillance prevents everything from allergen contamination to potential terrorist activity.

“I also appreciate how I can check in on things using an app on my phone,” Mr. Tingle added. Hikvision's iVMS-4500 app, available on iTunes and the Google store for smartphones and tablets, includes powerful, user-friendly capabilities such as playback and live view at the tap of a button. Features like this are another example of how Hikvision empowers security directors to utilize advanced technology in a simple and skillful way.

Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA, remarked, “Hikvision provides proven and tested video surveillance solutions for a diverse array of markets. We are thrilled to be able to show measurable improvements in security operations for our customers. Success of our project with Imperial Surveillance serves as a great example of the kind of benefits our technology provides to the end-users like Midwest Foods.” Mr. He continued: “As we continue to rapidly expand in North America, we look forward to bring even more success stories to the marketplace.”

IDIS DirectIP adopted in Thai luxury hotel resort

Editor / Provider: IDIS | Updated: 9/5/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

A luxury hotel and resort group has completed the first installation of IDIS DirectIP full-HD surveillance at its new flagship resort in Phuket, Thailand, as part of a wider DirectIP rollout programme. Commissioned ahead of the resort's inauguration in December, the project is the first of twelve DirectIP solutions to be installed across the group's new properties in Asia and North America.

Ahead of opening the Phuket resort, the group's security team needed to implement a modern and high performance HD video surveillance solution that would be unobtrusive and match the resorts luxury brand and image. The solution needed to ensure the safety and security of the resort's guests and staff, while the implementation needed to meet extremely tight deadlines ahead of the inauguration in late 2013.

In November 2013, the hotel group turned to their trusted systems integrator, Rutledge Integrated Systems (RIS). RIS worked in partnership with CCTV specialist's iCenter HD to review a number of server-based surveillance solutions. After thorough evaluation, the team selected DirectIP, based on its innovative high performance combined with its capability for fast and simple implementation, affordable pricing and bundled IDIS Center™ video management, requiring no ongoing licence fees.

The complete end-to-end DirectIP solution, comprising 45 internal and external dome cameras and two 32-channel network video recorders (NVRs), is managed through the simple and intuitive IDIS Center video management software (VMS). The IP-enabled and vandal proof range of one and two megapixel cameras, also feature pan-tilt-zoom, low light and audio functionality. Eighteen terabytes of storage provided by the DirectIP NVRs support the resort's requirement to store 31 days of footage all in full-HD.

The user-friendly solution operates just like a traditional analogue DVR-based system with all the necessary accessories supplied by IDIS to build a complete full-HD surveillance solution.

Andy Rutlege, Managing Director at RIS, said, “The luxury resort group are an existing prestigious and important customer for RIS, and we were determined to complete the project ahead of the inauguration. As an established systems integrator, having completed a large number of IP CCTV projects, DirectIP offered us a previously unseen level of seamless integration. To ensure we delivered the project on time and on budget, iCenter HD distributed the kit in record time to Thailand and remained incredibly responsive throughout the project.

“We are currently rolling out two similar DirectIP solutions in the Maldives and Miami with another nine scheduled over the next few months. We intend to use IDIS DirectIP™ combined with the services offered by iCenter HD for these and many projects in the future.”

Hard disk drives work hard to ensure data integrity

Hard disk drives work hard to ensure data integrity

Editor / Provider: William Pao, a&s International | Updated: 9/4/2014 | Article type: Tech Corner

Hard disk drives (HDDs) are the core of a storage system, which is critical in a surveillance installation. With growing demand for storage devices capable of storing bigger and more complex video data for longer periods of time, the need for higher-capacity and more reliable hard drives also rises. Today's surveillance HDDs consume less power, have better error detection capabilities, and are designed specifically for intensive writing that is typical of surveillance operations. All this is intended to meet users' growing storage needs.

The history of HDDs goes way back; they were Introduced in the 1950s. Yet for a long time, HDDs focused primarily on the storage of personal and corporate data and lacked surveillance applications. However, this has changed with the growing importance of the security industry. As camera resolutions get higher and video retention periods become longer, demand for HDDs that are bigger in volume and designed specifically for writing-intensive surveillance operations has increased.

In fact, it can be said that surveillance is a growth driver for the hard drive industry. A recent study by IHS predicted that revenue for both internal and external HDDs in video surveillance applications would rise from US$638.7 million in 2013 to $1 billion by 2017, a remarkable 57% increase. The market research firm attributed the increase in storage demand to various factors, including better performance and the use of high-resolution cameras. “The HDD industry as a whole will reap the benefits of a fast-growing video surveillance industry,” the report said. Indeed, today's HDDs come with advanced features, such as error detection and vibration tolerance, to make sure no data is lost. Capacity, which totals 4 terabytes (TB) in most of today's enterprise-level HDDs, will only increase over time. All this is meant to ensure data reliability and integrity over a long period of time and boost the overall performance of the surveillance deployment.

Consumer vs. Surveillance HDDs
The major difference between HDDs for consumer and surveillance applications is that the former is reading intensive and the latter is designed for data writing most of the time. “Consumer electronics (CE) HDDs' primary focus is entertainment systems, like a consumer DVR, where you typically record content and play it back over and over again. In this environment, smooth playback is very important,” said CN Chu, Technical Manager for Taiwan at Seagate.

Surveillance, on the other hand, requires constant writing of data as video feeds from different cameras are continuously transmitted to the storage device. HDDs for surveillance applications must therefore be designed from a writing-intensive perspective. “For surveillance applications, the customer needs an HDD that writes data 90%of the time, while reading accounts for just 10%or even 5%,” said Patrick Lo, Director of APAC Marketing, Digital Video and Data Center Storage Division at WD. “If there is no event, the video data is either retained or overwritten.”

Moreover, surveillance HDDs must be able to withstand lots of heat, being often enclosed in systems such as NAS or servers. Surveillance HDDs must also have more stringent fault tolerance requirements, able to perform even in the event of a components failure. Finally, consumer HDDs work at an average of eight hours a day, five days a week. Surveillance HDDs, on the other hand, must work round-the-clock. And given surveillance systems are always on, HDDs with improved energy conservation features can help users save on power.

Features to ensure data Integrity
Imagine the horror of not being able to find or retrieve a vital piece of data in the event of an accident. Since surveillance HDDs are tasked with storing piles upon piles of video data that is too valuable to be lost, they come with cutting-edge features to make sure all the data is kept securely and intact.

Error Detection
Error detection is a feature that activates when the system detects an impending HDD failure to allow the engineer to act accordingly, such as backing up data or making replacements. To make sure that error detection works, the HDD must be able to “shake hands” with the error detection software developed by the system manufacturer. “We do not just sell HDDs. In this industry, we sell a service and work with system manufacturers from the very beginning during the R&D stage,” Lo said.

Power Management
The more power a hard drive consumes, the more heat it will emit. Overtime, this will shorten a hard drive's life expectancy. Power management is therefore, in the words of Lo, “a topic that, for surveillance players, will never go out of style.”

Power management also plays a major role in the economics of running surveillance. “Because surveillance HDDs run 24x7, power consumption is a big deal. The less power required by the drive the lower overall cost of ownership for the end user — especially as you scale into larger surveillance data centers,” Chu said. To lower overall power consumption, HDD manufacturers have developed various technologies to achieve this purpose, for example minimizing disk operations during periods of downtime and reducing the “spin-up power” — power needed to get the disk from a state of rest to full rotation. A sudden surge in power consumption during this time may be costly and may even affect system operations later.

Read/Write
The hard disk's read and write speeds are dependent upon the user's surveillance system. A hard drive that supports a maximum sustained data rate of 180MB/second, for example, can accommodate up to 32 simultaneous recordings from HD cameras. “If you're streaming from a higher camera count and in higher resolution formats, you will need a drive that can support a higher throughput,” Chu said.

Besides read/write speed, effective and accurate writing into the hard drive is also critical. “Sometimes the HDD will keep recording, yet frame drops may occur, and that can be a huge problem,” Lo said, adding WD has a solution, called AllFrame, for this situation.

Selecting the right HDD
Picking the right HDD to install really depends on various factors. Installers and integrators should consider a range of things, for example the size of the project, the level of reliability demanded, and the number of drives that will be packed in a unit, before choosing the right product.

Type of Project
One way to figure out which HDD to get is by determining the size of installation. For a home environment with a camera count of four to eight, the installer may choose a standardlevel drive with workload of up to 60 TB a year and warranty of three years — that's total workload of 180 TB for three years. For companies or businesses with 40 to 50 cameras, an HDD with total workload of 900 TB over a five-year period (180 TB times five) may be considered. For the more missioncritical operations such as casinos, airports, and government agencies, total workload of 2,750 TB over a five-year period (550TB times five) is preferred.

Number of Drives
When HDDs are deployed in multi-drive units such as NAS or large servers, rotational vibration (RV) may become an issue that may cause data loss and corruption. “In systems with more than five drives, vibrations from the chassis or other rotating drives may cause enough vibration to impact the system performance as well as data integrity,” Chu said.

To address this issue, RV sensors are built into surveillance-purpose HDDs to minimize the impact of vibration. WD's technology, for example, has a sensor that detects vibration and triggers a response that keeps the drive heads within the safe operating region during read and write operations.

Level of Reliability
If the user requires a higher level of data reliability, then it's preferable to choose HDDs with a higher mean time before failure (MTBF) — the predicted time before the drive goes out. HDDs in the market now have MTBF ranging from 1 million hours to 1.4 million hours.

HDDs vs. SSDs Solid state drives (SSDs) are storage devices that are based on integrated circuits rather than on electromagnetism like HDD. SSDs do have a place in surveillance. They are more resistant to extreme conditions and vibrations, making them suitable for outside or vehicular applications. They also boast faster read and write speeds.

However, HDDs still have advantages. First, HDDs can stand a lot of roughening up. Enterprise-level HDDs can read or write 600,000 times, while SSDs can do so only 30,000 to 50,000 times. Secondly, HDDs are a lot more inexpensive. The price of a 512 GB SSD, the maximum spec in the market right now, can get the user more than one 4TB HDD.

“SSDs are suitable for many applications, for example car digital recorders which do not require big capacities. But will they completely replace HDDs in the near future? I don't think so,” Lo said. “And I don't think it's an issue of who replaces who, as finding the right storage technology really depends on your operating environment and budget.”

Bigger and faster is the future
As for the future of hard drives, the trends are that they will feature bigger and bigger capacity. Currently, maximum HDD capacity is 4TB, a figure “that is set to double every two years,” Lo said. “You can never satisfy customers' storage needs.” PCI Express (PCIe), a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard, is meanwhile expected to replace SATA as the mainstream interface for connecting storage to PC systems. PCIe boasts transfer rates of 1 to 2GB/s, faster than 3 to 6Gb/s for SATA.

Good prospects down the road
With bigger capacity, better performance, and less power consumption, today's surveillance HDDs help surveillance players big time by keeping data safe and secure. It has been said that a hard disk will be able to hold 20TB of data by 2020. With storage technology continuously improving, that scenario is no longer a far-fetched dream.

Honeywell offers HD IP video kits to Performance Series line

Honeywell offers HD IP video kits to Performance Series line

Editor / Provider: Honeywell | Updated: 9/3/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Honeywell is now offering bundled IP Video kits that give small to mid size businesses a hassle-free option for upgrading to high definition IP video. The kits consist of Honeywell's new four-channel embedded NVR with four ball or four bullet style high definition IP cameras. These kits are affordable, easy to install and provide a complete end-to-end video surveillance solution.

The network connected system allows business owners to view video from smartphones, tablets and computers. E-mail alerts can be programmed to warn users of network failures or motion detection.

Public school district in Nebraska deploys IP solutions with Genetec and Axis

Public school district in Nebraska deploys IP solutions with Genetec and Axis

Editor / Provider: Genetec | Updated: 9/2/2014 | Article type: Education

North Bend Central School District (NBCPS) in America has installed Genetec Security Center to better protect its elementary and junior high school students.

North Bend Central School District serves a community of 1,200 residents in the southwest corner of Dodge County, Nebraska. Its facilities include a PK-6 elementary school and a central junior-senior high school campus, accommodating approximately 560 students. While North Bend is a close-knit community and usually devoid of serious risk, NBCPS always stays vigilant in ensuring its students and faculty are safe.

The school district had been using a very small analog digital video recorder (DVR) camera system to track minor incidents of vandalism in its high school building, and doors to both buildings were secured by keys. The manual process of locking and unlocking doors and tracking keys was tedious and cumbersome. Upon receiving a sizeable financial federal bond, the school district planned a major infrastructure improvement which included a complete security upgrade. NBCPS turned to Prime Communications, a certified security solutions provider, who proposed Genetec Security Center, for a unified approach to security with video surveillance and access control.
Today, NBCPS is using Security Center to manage a total of 36 network cameras from Axis Communicationsand 15 HID Global door readers and controllers across both buildings.

Synergis, the access control system of Security Center, has been pre-configured to automatically lock and unlock the main entrances and exits of both school buildings according to school schedules. Since the community also uses certain facilities after-hours, the NBCPS facility managers can easily make schedule adjustments within Synergis to accommodate different events or special exceptions. Administrators can also quickly activate or de-activate cards as required. “Because everything is automated, we don't need to have someone come in and manually lock or unlock doors anymore. We schedule everything in the system or we assign community members visitor badges with specific privileges and access rights. Synergis has been really easy to use,” explains Jim Cody, Technology Coordinator at NBCPS.

From an IT perspective, Security Center has also been extremely adaptable by running within a virtualized environment and thus allowing NBCPS to minimize hardware. Omnicast, the video surveillance system of Security Center is also set to record on motion.
“We're a small district and we don't have the money to spend on terabytes and terabytes of data storage or servers for our security system. Having motion detection supported within Omnicast has saved us a lot of time searching for video and minimized storage costs,” added Cody.

NBCPS is using Security Center mainly for after-the-fact investigations, yet rotating video feeds are consistently displayed on monitors in administration offices. Being able to quickly locate, time-stamp and export video as evidence has proven to be useful to identify a suspect who had damaged school property during a school event and also provided video evidence to parties with different recounts of a traffic accident that was caught on camera.

While Security Center features such as remote monitoring have saved staff considerable time in handling video investigations from home, more powerful features like Security Center Mobile, Health Monitoring and Active Directory Integration are top of the to-add list in the future.

AHD, TVI, ccHDtv, and HDCVI see different analog security markets

AHD, TVI, ccHDtv, and HDCVI see different analog security markets

Editor / Provider: Erica Lin | Updated: 8/27/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

The 13th Taiwan Security Road Show hosted by Mess Frankfurt New Era attracted nearly 1,000 visitors today.

Among the seminars, one of the most asked keywords are analogy HD solutions — AHD, TVI, ccHDtv, and HDCVI.  Nowadays, 60% of the security market is still using analog systems. What are the available technical solutions for upgrading traditional analog system into HD system?

 

ccHDtv: digital HD system for high-end market
ITE Tech, the chipset developer for ccHDtv system, announces that the ccHDtv technology have become matured, with real-case implementation in China, the US, Australia, and Southeast Asia. The advantages of ccHDtv are what the higher-end market demands — least work days required, stable long-range transmission, and 720/1080p HD solution ready. Mostly, it takes only very basic type of the cables for transmission. In other words, cabling can be easy and costs very little.

Eyeing on these advantages, places that have implemented ccHDtv solution include banks, casinos, ancient historical site, and high-end private residential buildings, ect.

“While the price appears higher compared to AHD/TVI solutions in general, ccHDtv at present is targeting on the high-end market in which the clients tend to demand for wide-range surveillance and least interruption caused by construction at the same time.

The up-to-date ccHDtv technology has reached transmission range of 3c/500m, and 5c/1000m, 720p/1080p HD quality, and 16ch DVR, with 32ch DVR coming soon to market.

For system integrators, the ccHDtv products are different from others in terms of market and profits, while AHD/TVI targets to the wider but relatively price-sensitive analog market, according to Jeffrey Lai, Senior Manager of Product Marketing dept. of ITE.

While the technology has become mature, with the releasing of 32CH DVR, there are still challenges for promoting ccHDtv systems. ccHDtv technology is to upgrade analog surveillance system to HD and digital surveillance system. It takes more efforts to introduce the new concept to clients. Meanwhile, ITE now is aggressively planning on increasing ccHDtv device makers. More product choices help in a way persuade clients to adopt ccHDtv system instead of others.

TVI/AHD: broader and price-sensitive market
While the market is more familiar with HDCVI, launched by Dahua(related report: Dahua debuts HDCVI: First long-distance HD analog technology), the U.S. and Korean chip designers also release other choices for analogy HD upgrading solutions, AHD and TVI.

TVI is available with both 720/1080p solutions; AHD's 1080P solution has to wait till 2014 Q4.

However, unlike ccHDtv, AHD/TVI targets on a broader analog market where users require quick and easy installations for HD upgrade, but with low cost. The market focus falls much more on the channels rather than the SIs. Between 2015 to 2016, it is forecast that the market growth of AHD/TVI HD solutions will be critical, according to Morris Fang from HI SHARP.

For analog system surveillance, HD-SDI is evolving into 1080P@60fps to meet even higher demands, but at the same time AHD and TVI are rising and expected to become popular choices beside of HDCVI.
