Axis and Genetec safeguard Surf City in California with crime investigation

Axis and Genetec safeguard Surf City in California with crime investigation

Editor / Provider: Axis | Updated: 7/29/2014 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Case study: Axis cameras help the City of Huntington Beach, California , which is nicknamed “Surf City, USA,” investigate crimes downtown over a completely wireless network.

Mission
Huntington Beach, California is a booming beach community of 200,000 with a thriving summer tourist scene. With major events like an annual surf competition and dozens of bars and restaurants along Main Street, the city needed a video surveillance system to support its police force during incident investigations. But the police department headquarters was two miles from downtown, and the city did not have a fiber infrastructure to support a video system over that distance.

Solution
Reston, Virginia-based systems integrator and Axis partner CelPlan Technologies recommended a completely wireless solution with a mix of fixed and pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) Axis network cameras at key locations along Main Street and the pier, including AXIS Q6034-E PTZ Dome Network Cameras and AXIS P3363-E and AXIS P3364-E Fixed Dome Network Cameras. The PTZ cameras are set to guard tour to capture multiple views up and down the street on a rotating basis. Each camera is connected to a wireless RADWIN device that transmits the video back to police headquarters. The video is centrally managed from Genetec Security Center, the unified security platform that merges video surveillance with other security systems in one easy-touse solution. The open API architecture of the Axis cameras let CelPlan assemble the best components for the system.

Result
The Huntington Beach Police Department now has critical video evidence available to aid in the investigation of crimes and other incidents. In one instance, the cameras captured an assault with no witnesses, and the police were able to use a description of the suspect's clothing to make an arrest. The video surveillance solution proved so successful that the city launched a second phase to add an additional 15 Axis cameras at various hot spots around town.

Riding the IP video wave
Huntington Beach, California is a beachside community of 200,000 that swells with an additional 40,000 to 50,000 visitors each day during the summer tourist season. Nicknamed “Surf City, USA,” the city plays host to special events such as an annual surf competition, concerts and movie nights on the Pier Plaza. Its popular Main Street District also boasts dozens of restaurants and bars. With all the visitors, the city needed a video surveillance system downtown to provide additional support for its police force. However, their police headquarters is two miles away from the beach, and the city did not have a fiber infrastructure in place to transmit video over that distance. Reston, Virginia-based systems integrator and Axis partner CelPlan Technologies recommended a completely wireless, IP-based solution using Axis network cameras, RADWIN wireless transmitters and Genetec Security Center for efficient video surveillance management. “A wireless, IP-based system was the most affordable choice for the city. Installing a fiber network would have been simply cost prohibitive,” said Jasper Bruinzeel, vice president Wi4Net, CelPlan Technologies. “Additionally, with IP, you can scale without limit.”

No fiber? No problem. Shaping traffic on an all-wireless solution
For the first phase of the project, the city installed four AXIS Q6034-E PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) Dome Network Cameras, two AXIS P3363-E Fixed Dome Network Cameras and one AXIS P3364-E Fixed Dome Network Camera. The cameras' durable construction helped to withstand the salty sea air and ocean-front weather conditions. The city uses the PTZ cameras' guard tour feature to pan up and down streets and capture video over a much larger area. Additionally, the cameras provide the ability to fine tune resolution and compression rates, which are all easily configured from Genetec Security Center. “Features like H.264 compression allow us to shape the network traffic and make things much more predictable,” Bruinzeel said. “Those elements become very important when you try to push megapixels over wireless links.”

The open standards platform on which the cameras are built meant CelPlan could select the best possible system components without worrying about proprietary compatibility issues. “As an integrator, we try to use open architecture concepts as much as possible. This way we aren't tied to a single vendor for all the components, and we can use a ‘best-of-breed' approach to designing systems,” Bruinzeel said. The Axis cameras are connected to RADWIN wireless devices which transmit the signal back to police headquarters where it is stored on Dell PowerEdge R520 servers. Using Genetec Security Center for video surveillance, officers have the ability to monitor live video feeds 24/7, control the PTZ cameras and quickly retrieve and playback video from the archives for investigative purposes.

Case closed
The Huntington Beach Police Department saw results right away. Shortly after the cameras were installed, a man was caught on video stealing an expensive bicycle. A broadcast-quality image still was sent to the local news, and the man was subsequently spotted and arrested. The video evidence has also been used to investigate more serious crimes, including an assault where the victim was knocked unconscious. No witnesses came forward, but the police monitoring the video were able to use a description of the suspect's clothing and the direction he ran to make an arrest. “The evidence the video system provides is a huge plus,” said Lieutenant Kelly Rodriguez, Huntington Beach Police Department. “I am confident the cameras will aid in apprehensions following future criminal activity.”

 

MOBOTIX introduces new thermal sensor modules for S15D

MOBOTIX introduces new thermal sensor modules for S15D

Editor / Provider: MOBOTIX | Updated: 7/28/2014 | Article type: Security 50

MOBOTIX introduced the new thermal sensor modules for the S15D, being the first thermal devices to use MOBOTIX' revolutionary dual flexmount video cable technology. This is available with all S15D upgraded to software version MX-V4.2.1.43.

The flexible video cabling, weatherproof design and tiny footprint allows the two S15D thermal sensor modules to be installed into any location up to two meters away from a single S15D core unit. The advantage of using thermal sensor modules is that they can visualize heat radiating from vehicles and persons, for the purpose of accurate movement detection up to 400 meters away from the camera, even under the most challenging lighting and environmental conditions.

Another world first innovation, available in the MOBOTIX M15D and S15D, is the ability to combine both thermal and optical sensor modules in the one camera. While the thermal sensor provides movement detection, the optical sensor provides crisp clear object identification. This enables the M15D and S15D to deliver accurate detection of motion in all lighting conditions and visual verification of who or what triggered the motion event. ??The MOBOTIX M15D and S15D dual lens cameras come as standard with MxActivitySensor, a state of the art intelligent motion detection software. When enabled in the thermal camera, MxActivitySensor registers movement without artificial lighting in pitch black conditions and during the day time, with stunning accuracy “MOBOTIX has re-engineered conventional thermal camera technology so that you can do more in a wider range of applications,” said Dr. Ralf Hinkel, MOBOTIX founder, “As with all of our products, we are committed to quality and this is why we can guarantee an average MTBF of 9 years on all of our thermal sensors.”

High Quality Construction
The new S15D thermal sensor modules are encased in a special housing made of aluminium and stainless steel, allowing the module to be securely fastened to surfaces without additional mounts. As with all MOBOTIX products, the thermal devices are made in Germany. The thermal sensor modules are built for continuous operation in extreme conditions, with an impressive *MTBF of 80,000 hours.

MOBOTIX thermal sensor modules have a sensor value of 50 mK, which places them in the premium range of thermal cameras currently available for commercial use. The devices are all weatherproof – M15D (IP66), S15D (IP65) and S15D thermal sensors (IP65).

Lens Options – L43, L65, L135?The MOBOTIX S15D thermal sensor modules are sold separately and available in three different focal lengths:?
* MX-SM-Thermal-L43 with a horizontal image angle of 45°
* MX-SM-Thermal-L65 with a horizontal image angle of 25°
* MX-SM-Thermal-L135 with a horizontal image angle of 17°

The MOBOTIX M15D thermal sensors are factory fitted in the following camera models and also available in three different focal lengths:
* MX-M15D-Thermal-L43 with a horizontal image angle of 45°
* MX- M15D -Thermal-L65 with a horizontal image angle of 25°
* MX- M15D -Thermal-L135 with a horizontal image angle of 17°

The S15D thermal sensor modules cannot be fitted to the M15D.

Energy Efficient
MOBOTIX, known for producing low power IP video devices, has brought unprecedented energy efficiency to its thermal camera range. For example the S15D, when fitted with two thermal sensor modules uses an incredibly low 7 watts of power and can be easily powered via a standard (IEEE 802.3af) Power over Ethernet power supply. This is outstanding energy efficiency. By comparison other competing brands of thermal cameras are 30 times less energy efficient than MOBOTIX!

Hikvision launches Turbo HD analog solution

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 7/28/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Analog CCTV users can now enjoy HD resolution while safeguarding their investment in existing cabling infrastructure with Hikvision's launch of its Turbo HD Analog solution. This revolutionary technology supports latency-free 1080P HD over up-to 500 metres of coaxial cable and offers seamless compatibility with traditional SD cameras, Hikvision IP cameras and HDTVI-compliant cameras and DVRs. At launch, the Turbo HD product family consists of a comprehensive, 32-strong range of Hikvision DVRs and 720P/1080P cameras, including Bullet, Dome, PTZ Dome, Turret, Vari-focal, Vandalproof and Low-Light units.

HD Performance at 1080P/720P
The Hikvision Turbo HD product family is based on HDTVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface) technology and is ideally suited to upgrading existing standard definition systems at low cost. It retains the ease-of-use of an analog system while offering up to 1080P HD video output.

Open HDTVI Technology for 3rd Party Device Compatibility
All Hikvision Turbo HD products adhere to the HDTVI open standard, which guarantees trouble-free connection to other HDTVI-compliant cameras and DVRs. The Hikvision Turbo HD DVRs can also connect with traditional SD analog cameras and all Hikvision Turbo HD cameras can access third party DVRs equipped with HDTVI technology from other manufacturers.

Tribrid System – Futureproof by Combining Turbo HD, Analog and IP
The Hikvision Turbo HD DVR offers simultaneous connections to network, analog and Turbo HD cameras, auto-detecting the incoming signal and recording accordingly. This means that existing systems can be upgraded simply by replacing the current cameras and DVR while new areas may be covered with the addition of IP network cameras.

Up-to 500m HD Transmission via Coaxial Cable
Hikvision HDTVI technology guarantees up-to 500 meters of high-quality and reliable transmission at 720P / 1080P via coaxial cable. A conventional analog solution will struggle to achieve this resolution while HD-SDI solutions are limited in terms of long distance capability. This makes Hikvision Turbo HD a perfect solution to fit all requirements. In addition, the Turbo HD Analog solution supports UTC for remote set-up and configuration, and enables control of the OSD menu and PTZ control via coaxial cable. This means that users no longer have to go to the camera to make changes and enables much faster and easier camera installation and management.

According to Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision, “Turbo HD is a hi-tech tour-de-force in zero-latency, long distance HD-over-coax that demonstrates our commitment to pushing the boundaries of CCTV technology. Until recently, the only option for HD CCTV resolution was the wholesale adoption of IP cameras and their associated technology. Now, with the launch of the Hikvision Turbo HD Analog solution, users can enjoy 720P/1080P without even upgrading to IP or even replacing their existing cabling structure.”

D-Link: Home is where the smart is

D-Link: Home is where the smart is

Editor / Provider: Veronica Chen, Sponsored by D-Link | Updated: 7/28/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

D-Link is a leading global networking solutions provider for enterprise and consumer markets. With 189 sales offices in 66 countries, the company's next mission is to find its way “home.” D-Link's Head of Global Marketing Quenton Miao sat down with us to talk about the company's plan to become a global designer, developer, and manufacturer of smart home solutions.

In May 2014, D-Link made its first foray into the smart home market with the launch of its WiFicontrolled smart plug, the aptly named WiFi Smart Plug. Shortly after, D-Link announced its WiFi Motion Sensor and the mydlink Home app, a home management app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

These three elements form the basis of the company's smart home strategy. Users can pair their D-Link Smart Plugs with WiFi Motion Sensors to make home appliances respond to motion, such as setting the lights to turn on when someone walks in a room, or a fan to keep the living room cool while a person is present, or music to play when a user steps on the treadmill. The mydlink Home app provides a simple way for users to set and manage automation rules and schedules, as well as view live feeds from D-Link home security cameras.

D-Link's stream of announcements in the first half of 2014 is only the beginning of its Connected Home Initiative. “The home is becoming increasingly ‘IP-cized'. This is D-Link's strength, so it is a very logical step for us to capitalized on the growing interest in smart home,” said Quenton Miao, Global Marketing Head at D-Link. “With more than 27 years of experience developing networking and communication solutions, we have all the ingredients to build a compelling smart home offering.”

What sparked D-Link's interest in smart home?
About 15 years ago, I was Factory Director at D-Link. Telephones were analog at the time, and the transition to digital was picking up momentum. I didn't even know how to test the keypad on an IP phone. But, it was a necessary for us to adjust, and it was a logical step for telephones to turn digital.

D-Link has always been a pioneer in IP (Internet protocol) data communication. With advances in communication technology and the transition to digital and IP, many industries have become relevant to us; factories, industrial facilities, retail businesses, office buildings—they have all taken a similar path. Now it's fi nally making its way into residences. So, smart home is actually coming to D-Link, not the other way around. We're not taking a leap of faith into the market; we're taking another logical step.

What role does D-Link hope to play in a smart home?
Our mission is to become the core of a smart home, which we believe is the smart home hub or gateway. All smart home services and features, be it security, safety or automation, rely on the hub. Everything is on the hub, and the performance of software and services are highly dependent on it.

Think about your home computer. Over the past 20 years, we have gone through at least fi ve or six generations of PCs. Why do we upgrade? We want new features, more powerful performance, new applications, better aesthetics, convenience and more. We think smart home hubs will take a similar route, where users will continually upgrade to get a better experience.

That's why we see the hub as a tasty cake in the smart home market. Sensors, on the other hand, is icing on the cake. They are essential, but they also have a longer product life; users won't upgrade sensors—they will replace them when they cease to function.

Another cake is the home camera. Adoption of home cameras is picking up not just because of security concerns, but because the camera is the ‘window' to the ‘soul' of connected home. There are so many ways you can apply what the camera captures to achieve a high level of home control.

Does that make D-Link an equipment/device supplier or a solution provider?
D-Link has always been a solution provider. We are very different from most Taiwan and China makers. While others are more OEM/ ODM-oriented hardware suppliers, D-Link's DNA is the brand. Being a brand means we have to look at the big picture and work on solutions.

But, what is a smart home “solution”? We think some essential components are mobile apps, software and a cloud platform. We have done this for 10 years with mydlink. Our plan is to bond D-Link's connected devices with the platform. The cloud platform allows users to easily install and pair the products and monitor or control them from anywhere with an Internet connection. For example, with our home cameras, no matter how far away you are, mydlink can lead you to your video footage.

In terms of revenue, does solution refl ect a higher portion than hardware?
As a brand, all of our hardware comes with a solution, software and platform. For example, D-Link's smart devices are not mandatorily tied into mydlink, but the platform is a free service that provides extra benefits and additional features for each user. In this sense, D-Link has always been a solution provider, and this is one of our strengths. At the moment, we have almost 2 million registered accounts.

A recent report said D-Link has the highest shipping volume among consumer network cameras. Our market share is around 40 percent in the retail market. Solutions brought us not only a high market share but also a group of very loyalty fans. To answer your question, “Yes,” Solutions are definitely more profi table than hardware.

What kinds of distribution partners do you work with?
Our three main partners for smart home products are retailers, installers (SI), and telcos. Retailers are interested in this territory because it's another way they can provide service. For example, if you buy water filter at B&Q, Home Depot, or some other home improvement retailer, they'll help you install it. In our case, we partner with many tier-1 CE shops and home installation SI's around the world.

Telcos are also eager to enter the connected home market. They are similar to retailers in the sense that they have retail stores that sell mobile phones and accessories, but they also offer home security and other service packages. Their services also help promote network routers, smart home hubs, sensors and cameras.

How does D-Link approach the different markets around the world?
Each market is unique. In emerging markets like India, UAE and others, users look for traditional installers because DIY has not caught on yet. For these markets, smart home is a nicety rather than a necessity, so we have to educate the market on the benefi ts of home automation and security. We approach these markets with our cameras, introducing them to the merits of remote monitoring and control. If users enjoy the experience, they might adopt some of our other offerings.

In mature markets, such as Australia, the U.K. and U.S., acceptance and adoption of smart home is also very high. DIY is also very common. However, they do have different needs for smart home solutions due to different housing structures and cultures. For example, European housing is generally narrower and deeper, while US houses are wide and have basements. Our solutions need to cater to those differences.

What can we expect from D-Link's next launch?
At D-Link, we currently have four main areas of focus: network cameras, 802.11ac network routers, portable 4G routers and connected home solutions. Our mydlink platform synergizes all these product lines to form a practical solution.

We already have cameras, sensors, sirens, CO and PIR detectors. We have doorbells arriving soon. Aside from those, future product development strategies will depend on how the market develops and what it wants. We listen carefully to our 189 global sales points; they inform us of customer needs and wants in different markets, and we discuss with them which products to develop and launch.

What is D-Link's vision for smart home?
An essential requirement for smart home to materialize is connectivity, so we actually prefer the term, “connected home.” This happens to be our core competency. For example, D-Link cameras are designed as a networking device rather than just a camera, so it provides much more than visualization. The cameras also serve as a wireless repeater or sound detector. Most camera manufacturers do not know how to embed these functions into a camera. The designing mindset is totally different.

We believe the traditional view of home automation, where people set different scenes for their homes and change them at the push of a button, has gone very basic. It is also no longer a toy for the wealthy—it is affordable and provides numerous tangible benefi ts stemming from connectivity. To me, a connected home means four things: Communication, Control, Comfort and very, very Cool.

Bulgarian-Turkey border protected by TVT IP surveillance solution

Bulgarian-Turkey border protected by TVT IP surveillance solution

Editor / Provider: TVT | Updated: 7/25/2014 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Kapitan Andreevo - one of the most important European border check points is deploying TVT's IP based surveillance solution. The location is known as a jammed border line crossing by trucks, bused, and vehicles from surrounded areas the whole year. Therefore, reliability and value for money were the key requirements for Bulgarian Government.

The importance of this trasnportation security project is that the border check point is not merely an European community border, it also separates christianity and islam countries around this area.

Furthermore, Bulgarian-Turkey border is under serious supervision by the EU authorities due to the severe political and internal shocks in Syria over past decades. In fact, this CCTV project is part of Bulgarian national total control on the borders. This system is mainly used to help the authorities not only to control and monitor the traffic and order and border area rules, but also passenger's behaviour.

Solutions
RAK, the leading surveillance products supplier, also TVT's official distributor in Bulgarian market, supplied the equipment for this Kapitan Andreevo project. The project is completely IP-based solution providing 120 units of TVT's TD9511D - 1.3 Megapixel Network IR-dome camera; 80 units of TVT's TD9411D –1.3 Megapixel Network IR-dome camera; 15 units of TVT's TD-9620 – 2.0 Megapixel Network Speed Dome camera; 14 units of TVT's TD-2816NE-L – 16CH 1080P Network Video Recorder; NVMS1000 -- TVT's video management software for local monitoring and control.

Cameras, which are mostly installed outside in this bulgarian boarder surveillance case, must be able to withstand harsh weather condition and capture clear video image at night. The TD9511D and TD-9411D, equipped with ICR and weather proof IP66 housing, are ideal equipment to be deployed under such condition. Furthermore, the cameras' WDR function enable them to capture quality image from the high-contrast light environment. The IR illuminators around the lens can reach up to 20-meter distance for night vision. The 2-megapixel TD-9620 Network high speed dome are mainly installed at the outdoor area to safeguard the boarder by utilizing its 20x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom.

The storage system, NVR TD-2816NE-L, provides a storage of 6TB allowing the users to connect with at most 16 IP cameras on each unit and record 1080P/720P image. With TVT's NVMS1000, a video management software that support 1000+ cameras, the whole boarder region is under good watch.

Feedback
“We could proudly say that TVT IP devices – camera and NVR – have successfully reached EU requirements for specification and quality,” the project manager of the local installer said . “The climate at the Balkans area is very extreme. During the summer we have temperatures over 40 celcius degrees; and during the winter, sometimes the temperature could fall lower than minus 25 celcius degree at night. We have to make sure that the systems will run nonstop under any condition. ”

Bosch MIC IP 7000 HD family goes IP

Bosch MIC IP 7000 HD family goes IP

Editor / Provider: Bosch Security | Updated: 7/24/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Bosch Security Systems offers the MIC family of ruggedized pan-tilt-zoom cameras for reliable surveillance in the most difficult outdoor locations and other challenging environments, combining high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture. The new MIC IP 7000 HD family delivers the highest quality of IP video surveillance images everywhere, even in areas with extreme conditions like roads or highways, transportation facilities, city surveillance and critical infrastructure sites. The cameras withstand a wide range of harsh conditions – from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius with up to 100 percent humidity, as well as rain and snow, high wind gusts and significant vibration.

The new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD camera delivers HD video images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It delivers video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux. Clear HD images are captured in color down to 0.05 lux – when others switch to monochrome – to reveal accurate color details that support significantly in security event identification. Its ability to capture fast moving objects and excellent performance in extreme low light situations make the MIC IP starlight 7000 HD ideal for securing, for example, areas along highways.

The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene to provide maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions. The wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects or specific objects of interest are enhanced and can be easily identified in scenes with simultaneously bright and dark areas, which typically challenge standard cameras.

Both cameras also feature intelligent de-fog technology to dynamically adjust camera contrast settings to deliver the best quality in scenes affected by fog, smog, mist or other low contrast scenes.

Detection of objects of interest in complete darkness is ensured by the optional MIC illuminators. These illuminators consist of both IR and white light LEDs, and operators can switch between the two light sources with a single click. This enables detection of objects up to a distance of 175 meters.

Intelligent Video Analysis
Another differentiating feature of the MIC IP 7000 HD family is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). It helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or automatically tracking objects of interest. IVA also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata already in the camera. This allows the quick retrieval of the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimize business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information. By smartly using the camera's ability to simultaneously combine 8 of the 15 available IVA rules, complex tasks are made easy and false alarms are reduced to a minimum.

Among other uses, IVA can assist in monitoring unmanned stations or pipelines where people are not expected during normal operations, and since security guards cannot be everywhere all the time or watch everything at the same time, IVA alerts can also be sent to mobile devices when needed.

In addition, 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 intelligent tracking, it becomes easier never to lose track of objects of interest.

24/7 remote access and camera control
Limited bandwidth makes it impossible to stream HD video on mobile devices whereas Dynamic Transcoding delivers both smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images when needed, regardless of available bandwidth. Combined with the Video Security app, users are allowed access to camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime and from anywhere. It also enables you to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material. The new MIC IP 7000 HD family is fully supported by Dynamic Transcoding in combination with either one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET transcoder.

Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain the new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD and MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD cameras feature intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR). The benefit of this intelligent technology is that it leads to bandwidth only being used when needed. When there is little or no movement in the scene, less bitrates is required. Therefore, iDNR actively analyses the scene distinguishing between relevant information such as moving objects and image noise artefacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artefacts suppressed, optimizing the camera's bitrates. Thus, iDNR saves up to 50% on bitrates and hence storage and network strain without compromising video quality. Local storage on the camera further enhances network performance by compensating for short network outages, so ensuring that video data is continuously available in VRM systems without breaks.

Dependable operation and easy installation
Using the VIDEOJET connect 7000 with MIC and other Bosch IP cameras provides high Power over Ethernet support and added flexibility in network configuration and remote video access. Its built-in network switch supports connections to multiple IP cameras, which makes it an ideal configuration for installations along perimeters or highways. Smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images within limited bandwidth connections and full access and control of HD video images from anywhere at any time is made possible through its built-in transcoder which supports the Dynamic Transcoding technology.

Bosch IP standard-definition and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and many other industry providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which gives developers immediate access to software development tools to easily integrate Bosch products with third-party systems.

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 7/24/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Hikvision is set to reveal its newest edition: the DS-2CD6362F-I(S)(V) 6MP IR Fisheye Network camera. This 6MP IR Fisheye features a 1/1.8” progressive scan CMOS sensor to provide high-resolution images of up-to 3072 x 2048, 30 frames-per-second, and a 1.19 mm fisheye lens for a 360° panoramic view.

Choice of 3MP Model with WDR
A 3MP model of the WDR Fisheye Network Camera is also available - the DS-2CD6332FWD-I(S)(V). This 3MP model features a 1/3” progressive scan CMOS sensor, 120 dB WDR (wide dynamic range), and streams video of up-to 1536 x 1536 resolution at 30 fps.

See All Around with Only One Eye
It's all about seeing more with just one camera than with multiple cameras. Case in point, a single 6MP/3MP IR Fisheye Network Camera does the work of multiple cameras in both indoor and outdoor surveillance environments. Hikvision's unique fisheye is designed to capture images from every corner of a particular location and eliminate blind spots with only its single camera. Both models are equipped with IR functionality, offering up-to 15m IR distance of visibility under low or even zero-light conditions. Features such as these make both Fisheyes a great choice for detailed coverage of wide, open areas like airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, restaurants, classrooms, and more. Furthermore, a state-of-the-art housing unit and IP66 rating protect the camera against outdoor elements like rain and dust, and allows it to confidently withstand temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C.

Multiple Display Modes
The 6MP/3MP IR Fisheye Network Camera supports several viewing modes, including the aforementioned 360° overview (in 6 megapixel resolution and 3 megapixel resolution, respectively), a horizontal panoramic view, PTZ quad window, and PTZ multi-window modes. Customers can also utilize this smooth PTZ functionality to easily zoom, and focus, on any region of interest (ROI).

Multiple Compression Formats
MJPEG and H.264 video compression formats are supported. Additionally, these cameras feature multiple H.264 compression profiles, allowing users to optimize bandwidth and storage without compromising image quality. Furthermore, supporting ONVIF, PSIA, and CGI standards, both Fisheye models offer the ability to easily integrate with other video surveillance equipment and systems.

Other features include a built-in micro SD/SDXC slot (with a total capacity of up-to 64GB), a DI/DO interface to connect to alarm devices for further security control purposes, and an inbuilt high-quality audio intercom that allows two-way communication.

Fisheye Camera Combines with PTZ Dome
To further benefit the users, Hikvision has launched a Fisheye Camera and IP PTZ Dome Camera combo which elegantly provides a panoramic's 360° surround view while offering the capability for a detailed regional view from a speed dome. A perfect solution to monitor wide areas in the greatest of detail!
