South Africa's medical blood center provided Hikvision value-added performance

South Africa's medical blood center provided Hikvision value-added performance

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 11/6/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Located in city of Pinelands, South Africa's Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) is a non-profit, independent organization operating throughout the Western Cape. However, in reality, this is largest blood bank in the nation, and shoulders a medical responsibility commiserate with this status.

Annually in charge of over 165,000 units of blood, the WPBTS operates in accordance with both the World Health Organization's international standards and local South African national law to assist patients with their medical needs.

In late 2011, the WPBTS contacted South African security installer Verivision to develop a hybrid solution that would:
* ensure that sensitive medical areas are continually monitored
* logistically monitor the packaging and dispatching of blood stock
* monitor the movement of individuals throughout the facility

Interestingly, from its very inception, this solution was meant to transcend the traditional goals of a normative security. This is to say, instead of only stopping bad guys, this WPBTS solution is intended to be a value-add and bring logistical benefits to the medical facility. This is not to say that security was de-prioritized; instead it is meant to highlight the multi-functional IP role that Verivision aspires towards.

iVMS Smart Search
A big part of this value-add was the logistical tracking of blood packets.

In this case, it was a Hikvision software feature that helped facilitate this aspect of the solution. Specifically, it was Hikvision iVMS-4200 Software's "Smart Search" feature for both the facility's existing analog and IP cameras.

Essentially, this feature provides motion detection, in a specified area, for security functions. In the case of the WPBTS, cameras are trained onto a certain area containing valuable blood stock; if activity occurs, Hikvision's DS-8132HFSI-SH Standalone DVR is programmed to start recording a particular camera's video feed.

Furthermore, if a bookkeeping incongruence is later detected, Smart Search allows the Material Manager (the individual largely responsible for the day-to-day and managerial duties associated with this IP CCTV system) to quickly search for the associated video based upon related date & time parameters.

Keith Lewis, owner of Verivision, noted, "In many respects, this Smart Search feature is the key to the entire solution. Of course, it is only one of many aspects; however much of the hardware and technical work that went into designing the overall system was based upon the idea of efficiency. Smart Search very much epitomizes this efficiency, and has improved overall security while concurrently reducing shrinkage [loss] by a large margin. We are even able to better ensure laboratory standards are more efficiently met with WPBTS blood resources."

Keeping with the DS-8132HFSI-SH, Mr. Lewis explained that in the WPBTS, the CCTV system has a unique internal design. Essentially, the CCTV system is maintained by the Central IT Department. In turn, the aforementioned Material Manager has an office in close proximity to this Central IT Department, and is connected by fiber-optical cable. Through these means, the Material Manager has the facility's lone client PC used to access any live or recorded video that is deemed of importance.

The WPBTS requires video storage of anywhere between 50 - 90 days. With the medical importance of this facility, Mr. Lewis stated, "I only want the best possible resolution for both live and recorded views. This is why I chose the DS-8132HFSI-SH - it gives me 4CIF resolution real-time recording and an HDMI/VGA output at 1920×1080P resolution ... the best resolution possible for any of the analog cameras in this medical facility."

Current and Future IP Possibilities
Hikvision's DS-9632NI-ST Embedded NVR was selected to allow the facility's IP cameras to function. As can be expected, Mr. Lewis expected nothing less from this NVR model. With up-to 5MP recording resolution, and identical HDMI / VGA output as the previous DVR, he was not disappointed.

Additionally, this NVR provides the ability to add 32 IP cameras to the overall solution, providing both an element of foresight and fiscal practicality for whatever the future may bring.

IP Eyes
Placed in critical areas, such as the blood dispatch / transport area, and biometrically-secured access control stations, Hikvision's DS-2CD2012-I 1.3MP IR Mini Bullet Camera relies upon its excellent high-resolution capability to provide quality images.

Almost antithetical to this 1.3MP technology is an equally important aspect: the DS-2CD2012-I's small, low-profile design. Mr. Lewis elaborated, "Since this model is primarily in main passageways, we wanted a camera that did not ... stick out. Instead, the goal was for a durable, unobtrusive camera that does a great job ... and with its IR ability, it had no problem doing this job in the middle of night, when the facility is locked-down and lights are off."

Adding the proverbial cherry-on-top, is the Hikvision DS-2CD7153-E 2MP Mini Dome Camera. Placed in the Transport Control Room, a logistical nerve-center of the medical building, the DS-2CD7153-E is responsible for keeping a visual record of exactly who is entering the building, and exactly why they are doing so.

In this transport control room, Hikvision's 2MP resolution mini dome is able to easily view the attendant's activities. A clear view of the logbooks and of people in the area. Providing a super wide angle view, this IP mini dome camera is both a security and value-added logistical benefit.

As for motorized ones, which have been expected for a long time by the market, Dahua adopts optimized algorithm to realize faster and more accurate focus for instant and convenient adjustment.

On top of that, there are seven models in total in various designs, including eye-balls, IR-bullet and domes with IP66 waterproof and IK10 vandal-resistance helps cameras to withstand strict environment condition and sabotages.

HDcctv Allinace HDCVI 2.0 standard is based on HDCVI technology, which is to say, Dahua dedicates to a 100% sure plug ‘n' play remote control of any camera from any compliant DVR among manufacturers. “Dahua advocates interoperability, and the cooperation with HDcctv Alliance accelerates the development to HD, which, undoubtedly, helps our growing customer to enjoy more of the benefits of HD surveillance,” Shen added. The latest HDCVI family will be displayed at Security China 2014 from 28th October to 1st November.

ALCON wireless solution makes Indonesia harbor monitoring easier

ALCON wireless solution makes Indonesia harbor monitoring easier

Editor / Provider: ALCON | Updated: 10/2/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

Requirements and challenges:
In 2006, as the W-iFi technology was blooming, the Indonesia harbor administration department was looking for wireless transmission solution for analog speed dome cameras, so they could monitor the traffic of containerships conveniently. They also want the wireless systems to be easily installed and maintained. And the durability was also important for them. However, it was a time that most of the Wi-Fi solutions do not come with a utility for users to do centralized management.

Solution:
The local system integrator came to ALCON with such requirement and asking for assistance. We asked the system integrator to conduct a site survey to find out the distances between the control room and each location, if line-of-sight available, the bandwidth taken by each camera, and the power supply system.

ALCON selected ASU-24005g, the most top-selling product. This compact size model has a flat panel antenna built in, and powered by PoE (Power over Ethernet).

PoE is a technology which passes electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless devices or IP cameras.

It also comes with a centralized management utility, the AP Locator, which shows basic information of all connected ASU-24005g.

Considering the speed dome cameras are analog type, ALCON recommended an encoder and decoder system that converts the data type. The encoder converts the analog data into digital type for ASU-24005g transmission while the decoder converts it back to analog type so the video streaming could be stored on DVR or seen on the TV wall.

Performance feedback:
ALCON's wireless solution is fully capable of transmitting video streaming, as well as the PTZ function. The installation could be done in seconds as you just need to fix ASU-24005g on a pole with a metal ring, and both data and power go through the CAT5 cable which is 25m length.

This kind of installation saves a lot of time and cost on man power. Not to mention its user friendly utility AP Locator provides a convenient maintenance afterward.

*Our latest model AMU24 is designed to replace ASU-24005g. It uses 11n 300Mbps technology which provides better performance than ever.

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

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.”
