Sedar rolls out IDIS DirectIP across its Middle East operations

Editor / Provider: IDIS | Updated: 1/19/2015 | Article type: Security 50

IDIS announced that Sedar, a leading brand in the world of window fashion and fine furnishings, has rolled out IDIS DirectIP full-HD surveillance across is sales, manufacturing and warehousing operations in the Middle East.

Headquartered in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sedar employs 2,500 people serving a multicultural base of middle to high-end income customers. With ambitious expansion plans, Sedar wanted to increase the security and safety of its customers and staff, increase productivity and manage authorised entry into company premises. The company also wanted added flexibility to help maintain quality control across the business and to ensure compliance with best working practices.

After careful evaluation, Sedar selected IDIS DirectIP based on its high performance, quality, low cost of ownership and the customer service and responsiveness of the IDIS sales and technical team. DirectIP offered Sedar a complete end-to-end solution comprising a range of IP cameras, Network Video Recorders (NVRs), monitors, bundled IDIS Center™ Video Management Software (VMS) plus switching hubs and accessories.

Following a successful trial in March 2014, Sedar began a phased roll out of a 400+ camera and forty NVR DirectIP solution across its UAE multi-site company headquarters, twenty plus prime location showrooms, a 50,000 square metre distribution centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and eight major warehouses.

Plug and play simplicity meant the installation was completed with minimal engineer training and no disruption to routine operations. At each location installation took approximately two days including all infrastructure, configuration, and commissioning. A control centre at Sedar’s

Sharjar headquarters coordinates centralised live monitoring of all locations by a small team of operators. Supporting Sedar expansion plans, the company can easily extend video surveillance connectivity to each new international location that comes online, including franchise operations worldwide.

Imad Najjar, Sedar Marketing Manager said: “Sedar is a trusted brand with a strong commitment to quality. To uphold our high standards while supporting an ambitious multinational growth strategy, we wanted a state-of-the-art security surveillance system that offered exceptional performance without placing a heavy burden on company time and resources. We were immediately impressed with IDIS DirectIP™. It was user friendly, technically robust and offered everything we required – it was in a different class.”

Since implementing the solution, Sedar has reported a 10% increase in staff productivity, fewer reports of unauthorised access to company premises and fewer calls to investigate potential concerns about employee behaviour.

Harry Kwon, General Manager, IDIS Middle East, noted: “The speed of the Sedar rollout across multiple international sites is testament to DirectIP’s true plug-and-play simplicity, which also eases the burden of routine maintenance. Combining this with no annual license fees and low power consumption, we were able to offer Sedar an industry-leading low cost of ownership, while enabling significant operational efficiencies. We look forward to working with the Sedar team as they continue to expand their operations across the region.”

Sedar is pursuing an ambitious growth strategy, including franchise opportunities, to further extend its reach. During 2015 new retail outlets are due to open in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region that will implement IDIS DirectIP for all security and safety operations.

The City of Venice chooses Avigilon to protect city's residents, visitors, and historic architecture

The City of Venice chooses Avigilon to protect city's residents, visitors, and historic architecture

Editor / Provider: Avigilon | Updated: 1/19/2015 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Challenge
One of Italy's most scenic cities needed to deploy an advanced HD video surveillance solution that could provide safety for its residents and tourists, protect historic buildings and landmarks from vandalism, and meet the city's multiple regulations.

Solution
Security personnel for the City of Venice manage their HD video surveillance system from the city's police telecommunications and video surveillance operations center that spans two rooms and has a total of 12 full HD 55-inch monitors installed on the wall. Additional client control centers are located in an inter-police force center in the Piazza San Marco, in the provincial operations center of the Carabinieri of Venice, and in the state police of Venice operations center. The City of Venice uses the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) Enterprise software with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM)™. This is the core of the central recording system, located at the city of Venice data center, managed by Venis, an information technology company based in the city. Avigilon 16 MP and 8 MP HD Pro cameras were installed to protect three important sites in Venice: Piazza Ferretto (the main square in Mestre), Piazza San Marco, and the Rialto Bridge. In addition, all video feeds from existing analogue cameras are converted to HD using Avigilon encoders. The city also uses Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs) to store a minimum of seven days of continuous surveillance footage. The entire video surveillance network is based on an MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) fiber optic infrastructure, built by Venis and owned by the City of Venice.

Benefits to the City of Venice
- Protect residents, tourists and historic architecture
- Save on staffing costs - Strengthen relationships with state police forces

Benefits of the Avigilon Solution
- Faster search times
- Provide indisputable evidence for incidents
- High-quality image detail

The City of Venice Chooses Avigilon HD Video Surveillance System to Protect City's Residents, Visitors and Historic Architecture
With its stunning architecture, canals and bridges, the City of Venice is universally considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, attracting over 50,000 tourists per day. Located in Northeastern Italy, there are 118 small islands that are separated by canals and connected bridges. The City of Venice includes island and onshore territories and extends across the two distinct centers of Venice (on the Venice lagoon) and Mestre (onshore). Because of its unique landscape and artistic heritage, there are logistical problems associated with controlling the area. In a city like Venice, it is not only important to ensure the safety of its residents and tourists, but is also critical that the city secures its historic and world famous buildings. In the past, the Rialto Bridge had been vandalized by graffiti artists.

After years of relying on an outdated, analogue surveillance system, the city was ready to switch to a sophisticated, IP-based video solution that has an open platform. “The existing video surveillance system comprised of a city-owned system of approximately 60 analogue, low-resolution cameras which were very hard to analyze,” said Luciano Marini, Police Commander for the City of Venice, who also spoke of problems with the previous system's software and NVRs. “The video recording apparatus experienced frequent malfunctions that caused the partial loss of video feeds making it difficult to provide evidence in situations.” With the assistance of their security systems partner Venis, the City of Venice chose Avigilon because of the image quality and detail provided by the Avigilon cameras, and the efficient storage capabilities of the intuitive ACC software. Avigilon was also chosen because it is the only manufacturer capable of providing high-resolution cameras with a wide choice of lenses. “Other producers did not have comparable solutions in terms of resolution, nor did they offer the most suitable choice of lens for the type of frame,” said Commander Marini.

Superior Image Quality
In the Piazza San Marco, the two Avigilon 16 MP cameras were installed in St. Mark's Campanile, hidden inside the arcade. One camera provides coverage of the Piazza in the direction of the jetty on the San Marco dock and the other in the direction of the Ala Napoleonica (Napoleonic Wing) of the Correr Museum. “The use of high resolution cameras, like the 16 MP ones, gives us highly detailed images that can also be displayed while analyzing the recordings,” said Commander Marini, who states the image quality has been helpful to the police in solving crimes. “To obtain the same result, we would have had to install more cameras on neighboring monuments, with all the complications involved.” In the past, the city was forced to monitor key, high-traffic areas or areas subject to vandalism using multiple analogue cameras. “Using multiple cameras, it was easy to miss significant frames because of their position or being out of focus,” Commander Marini concludes. “The high-resolution fixed cameras, on the other hand, don't pose this problem: they are always in the correct position and they offer a high level of detail.”

Versatile and Scalable Solution
As a result of the Avigilon HD system's open platform, the City of Venice has been able to efficiently scale up their system in the last few years. With the assistance of Avigilon encoders, officials have been able to integrate existing analogue cameras and can now seamlessly manage all cameras under a single platform. The advanced search capabilities of the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software have enabled officials to locate events in a fraction of the time of their previous system. “We find the ACC software to be very simple to use and it has helped us be a lot more efficient with our searches,” said Commander Marini, who is also impressed with the software's zooming capabilities. “The ability to display different parts of the same image with various zoom levels, and get those images in HD while continuously recording the entire frame is incredible.”

Effective Crime Fighting Tool
Identifying perpetrators of vandalism or crime by image analysis has been a key advantage of installing the Avigilon HD system. “The Avigilon system has on many occasions been a valuable aide to research operations, including for investigative purposes,” Commander Marini said. The high-resolution images have been beneficial in providing indisputable evidence for the city's police force. On top of the technical capabilities of the Avigilon HD solution, security personnel at the City of Venice also found the system to have an excellent price to performance ratio. “The benefits are seen on a daily basis,” concluded Commander Marini. “For example, in the field of fighting unlicensed trading in public areas, we now save on manpower. Previously we had to verify all reports of the presence of illegal traders but now we can constantly monitor the affected areas and intervene with certainty.”

Baltazar Zuniga, Director, TVC, Mexico

TVC is a professional and awarded security device wholesaler in Mexico for systems integrators, installers, and some local distributors. Being in the market for over 13 years, TVC has16 offices and branches in Mexico. Recently, the company just opened another new distribution center with a point of sales in Iztacalco, Mexico City, with almost 3,000 square meters.

Baltazar Zuniga, Director of TVC, said IP adoption in the Mexican market still remains very low, and IP is used mostly in large-scale, infrastructure, and government projects. The ratio for the number of IP versus analog systems is probably around 25 percent against 75 percent. There are several factors that cause the low IP adoption in this country: Mexico is a quite price-sensitive country, and also its IP infrastructure still couldn't be compared with other developed countries. Zuniga added, “It also explains why the latest HD-over-coaxial solutions, such as HDTVI and HDCVI, look very promising in Mexico.” Although the IP penetration is comparatively low in Mexico, TVC still has worked with several leading brands, such as VIVOTEK, for more than 10 years, and the company just recently started the partnership with Bosch.

In this price-sensitive country, TVC has started to become more focused in solutions since two years ago in order to get more involved in project markets. Zuniga said there are two ways for them to offer solutions. “One is through the original system/solution suppliers. For instance, VIVOTEK, Dahua, and Bosch provide solutions themselves. So, we just join them in the trainings for our channels. Otherwise, we cooperate with some suppliers to make some changes on the firmware in our device to make our products more compatible with other device. Recently, we tried developing a time-attendance system, particularly designed by ourselves through cooperation with ZKTECO. We worked with our own engineers to develop a time-attendance system using fingerprint recognition, and the connection can be through a cloud server. When the device sends the information to the server, the management in the headquarters can see all the information from the devices. With fingerprint recognition, the employees can freely go to any offices of the company.”

Maulik Shah, CEO, Facility Security Division, Autocop India

Autocop Facility Security Division, having a complete distribution and service network across India, is a one-stop-shop for all security and safety needs that caters to individuals and organizations across verticals. Maulik Shah, CEO for Facility Security Division at Autocop India said, “We have grown by 35 percent year-on-year and expect 40% growth in 2015. We have shed non-performing brands and been focusing on key brands and models to drive growth next year. We are also investing on refining technical and sales team and planning to expand in tier two cities. In addition, we would add brand-specific team members and business development teams for certain verticals.”

Maulik also said the company has moved from box selling concept to solution offering concept and is a valued-added distributor, offering technical end-to-end solutions, paid commissioning, and training services. He continued, “We are reaching out to key specifiers via roadshows and events and closely working on key projects that help partners win the case in their favor. We ensure that our partners are well trained and become more responsive in the areas where they are weak. We also reach out to end customers jointly and offer proof of concept, design assistance, and technical support. Recently, besides video surveillance, we also have added access and entrance control over last year which has given us new customer base.”

Leonard Tye Lee Yew, Business Development Director, Bricomp International, Malaysia and Singapore

Bricomp International, a major distributor in Malaysia and Singapore, has embarked on a transformation journey to become a total security solutions provider since 2011. Leonard Tye Lee Yew said the company has grown its team to include solution specialists and architects that can help customers design and tackle the most stringent requirements. “We've also spent many hours in educating our partners (systems integrators) in the latest IP solutions and technologies,” Tye said.

Introducing a partners' program is key to a successful relation with Bricomp's partners as this is a form of recognition to them. “Our partners' program includes the three main elements of support to our channel partners: sales and presales, marketing, and after-sales and technical. As projects become more complex, we have also started introducing professional services to our partners. In the event a partner needs a certified engineer to help with testing and commissioning, we can offer this option to them,” he said.

“We are also working with our partners to provide budgeting for customers planning to migrate to a hybrid/IP solution with the integration to electronic access control systems. The process is longer as educating the end-user about their options and the available technologies takes time. However, we find this segment very potential for real growth as systems start to age and products become obsolete and can no longer be supported/repaired,” he said.

Feodor Zhidomirov, CTO, Luis+ Security Systems, Russia

Luis+ Security Systems is the official distributor of many well-known Russian and foreign brands. The key points of its strategy are to work both in the field of simple distribution and in complex project realizations by selling affordable security products and supplying expensive security products. “We are the distribution partner for many Russian leading security manufacturers, such as Bolid, Argus-Spectr, PERCo, ITV-AXXON, and foreign leading security manufacturers such as Bosch, Honeywell, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Axis, Panasonic, Samsung, and Hikvision. We do not need to change anything in our strategy,” said Feodor Zhidomirov, CTO of Luis+ Security Systems. “We get a very high customers' satisfaction by suggesting complete security solutions to our customers via our strong marketing strategy, technical engineers, fair price, and technical training center that provides legal certification on different brands. We also develop our own OEM product lines: LTV (video surveillance) and LPA (PA),” Zhidomirov continued.

Mansour Farzaneh, Chairman, PFN Technology, Iran

PFN Technology is a major distributor of IP video surveillance and network devices in Iran. Mansour Farzaneh, Chairman of PFN Technology stated in 2015, there will be more challenges and competitions in the security market (Iran), which mostly comes from low cost brands like Chinese brands. “Our plan is to compete with them by reducing our cost, expanding warranty to three years, increasing free technical and marketing supports in training and exhibition, and free project consultant,” commented Farzaneh.

“We have free project consultants because we want to take care of our customers more. We want to have a more frequent communication with them to help find out what kinds of products and solutions are suitable for them since mostly the customers don't have enough product knowledge,” he continued. In addition, return merchandise authorization service and free technical support are also very important for us to get a project.

Moreover, to gain more market shares, “We need to provide our partners with solutions, not products only. We bundled cameras and NVRs as total video surveillance solutions for educational centers, hospitals, and healthcare offices. We also have developed and expanded our product range, for NVR, PoE switches, and software for better support for our partners.”

Rustu Arseven, GM, Tesan Iletisim A.S., Turkey

As a value-added distributor of many global brands, Rustu Arseven, GM, Tesan Iletisim A.S., Turkey shared the following: Tesan is unfortunately challenged by companies which import cheap, low-quality, and nonstandard equipment with false information in Turkey. With our sales, technical, and marketing teams we are able to stand strong against this price-oriented trend.

Hikvision protects India's Uka Tarsadia University

Hikvision protects India's Uka Tarsadia University

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 1/8/2015 | Article type: Education

Recently, Hikvision's assistance was enlisted to secure Uka Tarsadia University's newer Maliba Campus in India. This solution was notable for a number of reasons.

However, first and foremost, providing a secure environment for the 4200 students and 200 faculty members on this campus was paramount.

Uka Tarsadia University is located in India's northwestern coastal state of Gujarat. Due to the location, historical footnotes, and other environmental factors, Gujarat is one of India's primary economic hubs. Since Uka Tarsadia University is considered one of this state's elite centers of learning, it was vital for this facility to be safe.

In this vein, Indian-based installer Master's Mind Technologies was contacted to help the university:
* Build a state-of-the-art CCTV system
* Future-proof the solution
* Provide an easy learning curve for university IT administrators
* Provide top-shelf support for the solution

Starting from Scratch
Ketan Patel, owner of Master's Mind Technologies noted, "This solution was unique in the sense that the Maliba Campus was a blank slate - the campus did not have any existing CCTV solution when we began."

Mr. Patel explained that generally in large-scale projects such as this, it is often a case of upgrading an existing solution - not building one from scratch. "This presented both opportunities in the caliber of solution we could offer, as well as potential drawbacks. Namely, the costs associated with building a solution from the ground-up and cost of hardware provided," furthered Mr. Patel.

Ultimately, both Mr. Patel and the university's IT department determined that, despite the size, instead of a more economical analog CCTV system, an IP solution would better serve the university's overall needs. Additionally, it would help future proof the solution in coming years.

This was due to a number of factors.

High-Tech Components and Performance
Due to the massive distances between academic departments and outdoor surveillance points, fiber-optics were run between these locations and connected to each other using PoE switches. While fiber-optics are expensive, multiple PoE switches helped reduce the costs associated with installation. Importantly, this setup allows state-of-the-art video transmission, as well as providing an easy platform for any future upgrades that the university may request.

However, the lynchpin of the solution is a pair of Hikvision camera models: the DS-2CD2112-I 1.3MP IP66 Network Mini Dome Camera and the DS-2CD2012-I 1.3MP IR Mini Bullet Camera.

The DS-2CD2112-I IP66 Network Mini Dome Camera was primarily tasked with the interior of the campus. Mr. Patel stated, "This camera's 720p real-time video is much better than analog, which obviously serves the school's security goals to a higher degree. Furthermore, Hikvision's support really allowed us to customize this camera to our specific needs."

Mr. Patel was referring to Hikvision's ability to help modify the camera's lens. Out-of-the-box, the DS-2CD2112-I is equipped with a 4mm standard lens. This 4mm lens provides 75° of coverage. However, due to the specific dynamics of many of the school's classrooms, a wider field of coverage was needed. In conjunction with Hikvision engineers, Mr. Patel instead placed a 2.8 lens on the DS-2CD2112 to provide 90° of coverage - enough for the entire classroom.

Furthermore, while some indoor facilities are lighted overnight, the majority of classrooms are not. In this instance, "the up-to 30m of IR visibility is invaluable for proper surveillance in off-hours," added Mr. Patel.

Ironically, outdoors, the vast majority of the environment is lighted, thus reducing the need for the DS-2CD2012-I 1.3MP IR Mini Bullet Camera's identical 30m IR range. However, the unit's 1.3 megapixel high resolution is vital for university IT personnel to quickly identify a possible threat, regardless of time of day. Additionally, the DS-2CD2012-I's IP66 rating is critical to withstand India's notoriously punishing weather conditions.

Master's Mind Technologies Promising Future
Citing a need to both reduce the learning curve for the university's IT department (the operators of the CCTV system), as well as reduce costs, Mr. Patel used Hikvision's iVMS software to create a PC-based solution. Instead of NVRs, IT administrators are able to view up-to 135 cameras per PC, allowing the entire network to be fully viewed on 4 PCs.

Mr. Patel again cited Hikvision's exemplary product support as a boon for the growth of his company. With Hikvision engineers quickly and efficiently addressing any issues that arise, Mr. Patel is excited for the future of this solution and the prospects of his own company.

Hikvision supports student safety at Texans Can Academies

Hikvision supports student safety at Texans Can Academies

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 1/7/2015 | Article type: Education

Hikvision, the global leader of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, partnered with ASG Security -- a leading security dealer and installer in the United States, and their customer Texans Can, an open public charter school, to help provide high-quality education for students who have previously struggled in a high school setting. Hikvision solutions met and exceeded the organization's diverse set of security needs, ranging from ensuring the safety of campuses across Texas to protecting the auction site of their sister organization, Cars for Kids. With a user-friendly product line that offers the superior performance of crystal-clear video, Hikvision solutions allow Texans Can to elevate the security of students, faculty, and visitors.

Since 1985, Texans Can has served students aged 14-21 who have been unsuccessful in traditional high schools, providing alternative learning environments in Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Texas, Houston, and Fort Worth that encourage them to attain their high school diplomas. The campuses are equipped with special resources that include programs for students with learning disabilities and childcare centers for students who have children. Teachers and counselors adopt a hands-on approach to helping their students succeed.

“The teachers really know the students, and the students really know the teachers,” elaborated Malcolm Wentworth, COO of Texans Can and Cars for Kids. “We care. With 1,400 students graduating each year, it's clear that we are using an approach that works.”

Texans Can sought the expertise of ASG Security for a cutting edge surveillance solution. After researching camera models across the market, they selected Hikvision equipment due to high value and high image quality, including the DS-2CD2232-I5 3MP EXIR Bullet Network camera and the vandal-proof DS-2CD2132-I 3MP IR Fixed Focal Dome camera, along with 16- and 32-channel NVRs.

“We as an integrator have the opportunity to sell any number of different brands, but we chose Hikvision because it's easy to use, easy to install, very low maintenance, and very high quality,” detailed Fred Harris, Core Commercial Sales Representative for ASG.

Also benefiting from Hikvision products is Cars for Kids, a nonprofit organization that supports Texans Can with the proceeds from vehicle auctions. Their Dallas site boasts 40 Hikvision cameras in two separate buildings that are linked via a wireless bridge and an 8-port PoE switch. Because of the high volume of cash transactions taking place at the facility, it was crucial that the image from the cameras be crisp enough to identify various monetary denominations. Again, the DS-2CD2132-I and the DS-2CD2232-I5 rose to the challenge.

“Hikvision cameras are the best I've ever seen,” Mr. Wentworth remarked. Chad Dawald, Vice President and General Manager of ASG, added, “When we research a product, we look for something that makes sense to the customer and makes sense to us. We're thrilled to deliver Hikvision security solutions to Texans Can.”

Jeffrey He, President of Hikvision USA, explained why Hikvision is making great strides in the education vertical: “Hikvision's security products offer a particularly user-friendly and cost-effective solution to organizations who don't necessarily have extensive resources, but whose students are invaluable assets that deserve the highest caliber of security. It is an honor to provide this security to Texans Can and to be elevated by integrators nationwide.”

Surveillance gets ultra clear with 4K

Surveillance gets ultra clear with 4K

Editor / Provider: Lisa Hsu, a&s International | Updated: 1/6/2015 | Article type: Hot Topics

4K has made a place for itself in the consumer market, with 4K television and displays becoming increasingly popular. Now, it is slowly making its way into the security industry. “4K video systems are not only a trend of the future, but also a ready solution going to impact this market. With the capability to cover wider areas, budget can be saved due to fewer units and installation,” said Ken Huang, Marketing Specialist at DynaColor. With the release of 4K, new solutions can be explored in several verticals to make use of the UHD resolution.

DEFINITIONS AND VERTICALS
Boasting 4,096 x 2,160p (8.3 megapixels; around four times that of full HD resolution), 4K has the ability to display UHD video footage. In the same way 1080p was first introduced, the initial 4K applications tend to be for outdoor surveillance with a large field of view and the need to resolve detail (e.g., sport stadiums). According to Andres Vigren, Product Manager of Axis Communications, “HDTV network cameras are already used for installations where there is a requirement to overlook an area with the capability to zoom in on details with high precision. 4K UHD takes this to the next level by allowing larger areas to be monitored with a single camera without compromising on level of detail should this be required when an incident occurs.” The ability to capture a large scene and zoom in on images without sacrificing pixels makes 4K ideal for monitoring large areas, which is useful for city surveillance and transportation. Additionally, as one 4K camera can substitute many HD cameras, it presents as a cost-effective solution while minimizing blind spots.

With 4K, data collected from video recordings creates opportunities for improved investigations, but also business intelligence. For instance, personnel and customer paths are more accurately traced, and the resolution is high enough to support multiple content analyses for functions like people counting and license plate recognition (LPR), which provides more precise identification and reduced false alerts. This also allows for faster and more accurate monitoring in crowd management and perimeter protection requirements. 4K can also be applied to safe cities, wide-lane traffic monitoring, police dispatching using geographic information systems (GIS) maps, and more. “Optical zoom becomes a useful feature thanks to the 4K cameras. The quality of the camera means it can provide a stream of information, such as metadata for marketing, operations, and processes purposes,” said Gerard Figols, European Head of Product Marketing at Panasonic System Communications.

CONSUMER CONCERNS
Although it holds great potential, 4K systems are not yet mature. There are a few things consumers need to keep in mind when purchasing a 4K system: is it suitable for the application and whether they have a full 4K-compatible system. “The main factors for 4K video systems to be ready mainly depend on the development of (well-matched) codec capability of camera and backend devices, as well as storage capability and display devices such as TV walls and monitors,” said Adler Wu, Product Marketing Manager at Hikvision Digital Technology. With Theia and Fujinon as the only two companies currently offering 4K lenses, the market is still limited in 4K lens choices. Moreover, these products are still early in development; therefore, it is likely that most video surveillance system operators will be using a standard HDTV monitor. And, with complications in low-light environments and limitations in capturing fast movements, 4K still has much room for improvement.

In addition, many misunderstand that 4K will replace current panoramic cameras; however, for now this is not true. This is because where there is a large area to be monitored that requires situational awareness, a regular 4K camera will have the same limitations with respect to blind spots in terms of wide-angle monitoring. At the moment, 4K fisheye lenses have yet to be developed, as many are experiencing difficulties in eliminating distortion on the side of the lens. “4K is not optimal where large panoramic scenes need to be covered. Loading docks, hotel lobbies, and parking lots will continue to be better served by multisensory panoramic camera systems,” concluded Brad Donaldson, Director of Product Management at Arecont Vision.

Companies are tripping over themselves to be one of the first to release their own 4K cameras, yet very few provide a whole 4K system, which forces users to buy 4K NVRs and monitors separately if they want to employ the system. This may also create compatibility issues when companies do decide to release other 4K products, or when customers upgrade to H.265 chipsets. In a hurry to promote that their own 4K cameras are using H.265, many companies have cut corners in efficiency, meaning early adopters using products embedded with “H.265” may in fact be less efficient than the now-standard H.264, Ed Thompson, CTO of DVTel warned.

Suggestions
Moreover, one must consider the storage and bandwidth required to stream and store 4K, especially when using H.264 video compression technology and older hard drive disks, as 4K systems are resource intensive products. Luckily, advances in network architecture and technology have developed 40 gigabit Ethernet technology, enabling transfer of Ethernet frames at speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second, which is suitable for 4K media workflows. “That said, the ability to compress 4K files for easy transmission while maintaining image performance and integrity is still important even on a 40 gigabit Ethernet,” said Riki Nishimura, GM of Visual Security Solutions for Professional Solutions Company (PSAP) for APAC at Sony Electronics.

The upgrades and additional equipment needed in order to fully deploy a 4K system can be costly at this time, although prices for 4K lens are dropping drastically. “Last year a true 4K resolution lens could cost several hundreds of dollars, but prices have now dropped to below US$20 for a decent lens,” commented Bengt Christensson, Senior Director Marketing at Ambarella. Growth of 4K systems will be more widespread once the cost for 4K equipment drops, which will allow solution providers to explore more ways to use recorded data where 4K footage is applicable.

Additionally, Peter Pan, Product Manager at Dahua Technology believes that 4K real-time streaming is not absolutely necessary when it comes to surveillance monitoring. This largely depends on the user's budget, project requirements, as well as bandwidth consumption.

FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
In the near future, 4K will inevitably become the new standard for surveillance resolution; however, there are many challenges manufacturers have yet to conquer — management of the increased amount of video data (higher bitrates), capture of fast moving objects, and challenging lighting conditions, according to Pieter van de Looveren, Marketing Communications Manager of Video Systems at Bosch Security Systems.

4K's problem in low-light environments is due to the small sensor and pixels crammed in an image, resulting in less light absorbed. “Most models use a lower quality sensor with slower aperture lens and do not provide any infrared (IR) illumination; these are poor choices for many applications where the lighting is not ideal,” explained Thompson. Similarly, Donaldson also noted most verticals will benefit from high resolution and faster frame rates, however low-light environments might prove to be challenging due to the pixel size on the sensor. Companies are overcoming this issue by embedding different features in 4K cameras that will perform better in low light, such as Arecont Vision's camera with a 1-inch sensor that creates larger pixels, and DVTel's implementation of IR illuminators with F1.4 lenses to provide optimum low-light performance. This development will prove to provide better surveillance for applications like casinos where the premises are often filled with flashing or low lights from gaming machines.

Once 4K is fine-tuned for better use in various applications, it will definitely bring change to the security industry. With H.265 in the works, it will still be at least a year before it becomes commonly available. “We see the first generation of 4K cameras use H.264 with optimized low-bitrate tuning, and that H.265 will mature and become the next standard in the years following,” said Christensson. Though the current compression technology can handle the high resolution, and manufacturers are developing other technologies to reduce bitrate, such as Bosch's Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction technology that reduces noise based on motion and light levels, it is predicted that H.265 will be more appropriate to compress the hefty data. It's no doubt that H.265 will become the best solution of high resolution camera applications. With the latest compression technology, H.265 is promising to reduce up to 50 percent of bitrate usage. This brings great advantage to the most important part of high resolution surveillance solutions: Internet bandwidth and storage capacity control,” said Huang. To solve the current problem, Vigren suggested, “to manage bandwidth consumption, users can view the live video stream in HDTV 1080p and take advantage of 4K UHD recordings for forensic purposes.”

To further accommodate application needs, such as monitoring outdoors, it will be essential that 4K have features such as high dynamic range (HDR). “Due to the high resolution of 4K video and common outdoor applications, HDR will become a valuable feature and over time a requirement. There is a focus from the main sensor vendors on new 4K sensors, benefitting from increased sensitivity technologies and combined with advanced noise reduction processing one can expect 4K cameras to improve low-light performance considerably,” said Christensson.

4K: FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY
4K has come a long way since 2013 when the International Telecommunications Union set the standard specifications for UHD television. As manufacturers continue to improve and upgrade systems to provide users with more detailed resolution and smoother streaming, it is evident 4K will not only be the standard in future surveillance solutions, but also the key to opening a door to new ways of using the data collected.

4K Application Challenges
Although 4K can bring a clearer picture and better user experience for security, compared to 1080p HD, data collection, encoding and decoding, transmission, display, storage, and processing for 4K all require higher standards.

  • Higher resolution lenses: Lenses need to be at least 8 megapixels in order to display the full effect of 4K resolution; however, cost for these high resolution lenses are expensive and limited, especially ones that are suitable for surveillance and are able to support zoom lens movement.
  • Network transmission, higher bandwidth, and greater storage capability: In security applications, transmission of 1080p HD video requires around 4 Mbps bandwidth; under H.264 encoding, 4K resolution at present requires at least 12 Mbps bandwidth in order to achieve better image quality. Meanwhile it is foreseen that the era of 4K will soon lead to double the storage requirements as surveillance demand for reliability and safety increases.
  • Chip encoding performance: In order to reduce 4K resolution pressure caused by high bandwidth and storage capacity, it is necessary to optimize the performance of H.264, or deploy the new HEVC standard H.265. Currently many manufacturers have started to optimize the H.264 chipset focusing on various applications to lower bitrate while maintaining quality for 4K resolution.
  • Stronger back-end decoding and display capability: Powerful graphics processing units are required both to process 4K resolution output as well as to display 4K video.
  • Higher resolution display devices: 4K compatible monitors are required to display the full effect of 4K resolution. Since a reliable and cost effective display compatible for 4K streaming is not yet available , widespread adoption is difficult. Although LCD 4K monitors are available for consumers, it is not yet suited for the security industry.
  • Video processing capability: For 4K resolution surveillance images, elements displayed are more detailed, but at the same time computing power is needed to handle the richer detail, especially for abilities such as image enhancement, de-fogging, and video analyses.
  • Price: Currently, 1080p and 720p HD resolutions are able to meet the needs of daily monitoring; however, as costs for 4K systems drop, popularity for 4K will increase.

    The Capital of Armenia Deploys Avigilon High-Definition Surveillance System As Critical First Step in Safe City Initiative
    One of the oldest cities in the world dating back to 782 BC, Yerevan, the capital of the Republic of Armenia, is the country’s political and economic hub. With more than a million residents and attracting tourists from around the world, Yerevan is compact and crowded, with an intense cultural life that draws a lot of traffic. Like all municipalities, Yerevan is vulnerable to threats driven by overcrowding, criminal activity, and natural disasters. To improve the safety of its citizens and visitors, the city has launched a “Safe City” initiative to reduce and prevent crime, and enhance the quality of life in the city. At the heart of its Safe City initiative is the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system, currently deployed in the city’s roads and parking lots with plans to cover the entire city to better protect its people, property, and assets.

    The First Step
    As a first step in Yeravan’s Safe City Project, the municipality engaged Parking City Service, a local provider of surveillance system design, installation, and support, to manage the surveillance system deployment at the city’s parking lots and to monitor traffic in the crowded downtown core. “We believe that customers of the new paid parking system should receive good value for their money – ensuring the safety of vehicles is absolutely critical,” said Vazgen Harutyunyan, director at Parking City Service. “We looked at solutions from all the major players and selected the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system for its exceptional image quality that captures the smallest details, advanced search and playback functionality, and ease-of-use.”

    Avigilon in the City
    Parking City Service has installed 1,600 Avigilon HD 5 MP Bullet cameras with adaptive IR technology in designated parking areas to date and plans to install another 5,400 Avigilon HD cameras for complete coverage across the entire city. Six operators manage the surveillance system using Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM)™, storing up to two weeks of continuous surveillance footage on 20 Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs), located in the company’s new air-conditioned data center.

    Parking City Service installed the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system in no time, with excellent support from the Avigilon team. “We had no issues with installation and set-up, and Avigilon answers any questions we had promptly and accurately,” confirmed Harutyunyan.

    Parking System Management
    The Avigilon high-definition surveillance system is used primarily to manage the city’s new paid parking system and regulate what has been a disorderly situation for years. “We leverage the image quality of the Avigilon HD cameras to capture the license plates of vehicles parked in our lots and if payment is not made, a ticket is issued,” explained Harutyunyan. Operators review archived footage to identify vehicles that have not paid, creating a five-minute video clip that is attached to the ticket. “We create between 500 to 600 video clips each day, which we are able to do efficiently using the advanced search and playback features of the Avigilon Control Center software,” noted Harutyunyan. The Avigilon high-definition surveillance system ensures patron safety and parking availability, and also helps generate revenue for the city that can be used to further improve traffic flow in the downtown core.

    Intuitive Searching Saves Time
    Searching through large amounts of footage can be time consuming work, but operators can dramatically reduce the time required using the advanced functionality of the ACC software. Operators can digitally zoom in on image details from single or multiple cameras to capture necessary data and have full control over forward and reverse playback with drag and zoom capabilities for faster search times. “Avigilon Control Center is extremely user-friendly and intuitive, so we can quickly search through multiple cameras for fast results – in fact, we can complete all our reports in just a half an hour, even when multiple cameras are involved,” stated Harutyunyan.

    Exporting Video Boosts Safety
    The city also leverages the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system for public safety purposes, reviewing footage of theft, vandalism, crime, and accidents in surrounding areas for investigative purposes. Feedback from local law enforcement and municipal agencies has been positive. “We can quickly and easily export video to help police in their forensic work,” explained Harutyunyan. “In one case, in which a man entered a building with a rifle, we were able to immediately provide footage which led to his arrest within hours.” Surveillance video is also shared with the city to assess traffic flow or analyze other urban planning concerns. “By collaborating with the city, we can help improve traffic flow, reduce crime and congestion, and enhance the overall quality of life in Yerevan.”

    Clear Image Detail
    Another key selling feature of the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system is its exceptional image quality – both day and night. The Avigilon HD Bullet cameras are equipped with built-in adaptive infrared (IR) illumination to increase in-the-dark visibility without using a visible light source, important for operators to effectively capture minute details, such as license plate numbers, at any time of the day or night. “I also really like the fact that the Avigilon HD cameras come with an integrated lens for remote focus and zoom control,” said Harutyunyan. “I can easily change a camera’s focus from 3 mm to 9 mm or 22 mm for even greater clarity.”

    Future Scalability
    Scalability was another important requirement, especially given the city’s plans to expand the surveillance system right across the municipality. “With the Avigilon surveillance system, we will have no blind zones in the city center, with cameras installed on posts every 30 to 40 meters,” described Harutyunyan. “The Avigilon system will easily grow with us as we work towards 100 percent coverage of the entire city within the next few years.”

    A Safer City Environment
    The parking lot surveillance solution is just the first step in Yerevan’s Safe City Initiative to enhance public safety and protect critical infrastructure, property, and assets. With broader access to surveillance footage, city officials can respond to events faster and more accurately than before to reduce crime and manage crisis situations in real-time – on every street corner. “Our final goal is to create a safer city for residents and visitors alike,” concluded Harutyunyan. “With easier and more timely access to high-quality surveillance footage through the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system, we can easily achieve greater situational awareness for better overall protection.”
