ITE presents ccHDtv: future-proof technology for video surveillance

ITE presents ccHDtv: future-proof technology for video surveillance

Editor / Provider: Jill Lai, a&s International | Updated: 4/17/2015 | Article type: Hot Topics

4K resolution video coupled with advanced analytics is more than just buzz words — it will eventually become a future standard for security. In the meantime, thanks to the increasing adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in different industries, more and more high-quality video will be put on the Internet. Then, data storage and transmissions will soon become a major issue for a video surveillance system. H.Y. Lin, President of ITE Technologies, a well-known IC design company and the solution provider of ccHDtv, further emphasized, “The solution which is able to stand out in transmission technologies will define the best video surveillance system in the future.”

The company, therefore, invented the ccHDtv solution to address future transmission problems in a video surveillance system. ccHDtv is an industry-first, pure digital HD video surveillance solution, based on DTV (Digital TV) technology, and is able to transmit video and audio data over coaxial cables. ccHDtv leverages the AV transmission capability of DTV technology, featuring high noise resistance and high bandwidth, so it can easily overcome some common transmission challenges of current IP video surveillance and analog technologies.

Unique Transmission Technologies
What makes ccHDtv unique is its “transmission technology,” according to Lin. Based on DTV technology, ccHDtv uses COFDM and radio frequency (RF) transmission technologies, which bring many benefits to the whole system, such as high noise resistance and bandwidth. He further explained that current IP video surveillance system use TCP/IP transmission technologies to transmit digital signals over Ethernet cables. Therefore, an IP video surveillance system usually has image latency problems. It goes without saying that these problems might get worse when transmitting 4K video. However, ccHDtv is different from IP because of the COFDM and RF transmission technologies, which are able to provide high bandwidth at 31.6Mb/s per channel. Using one single coaxial cable, ccHDtv can connect 16 to 32 cameras in total and transmit signals between 500 meters and one kilometer without using amplifiers or repeaters. Most importantly, “ccHDtv is the one of the kind solution that can transmit 4K video simultaneously via multiple channels,” Lin highlighted.

Furthermore, because ccHDtv is a pure digital HD technology it can deliver superior image quality and high noise resistance, regardless of the quality of coaxial cables and the limitation of a 200-meter transmission distance, compared to other HD-over-coax solutions. Because most HD-over-coaxial technologies are analog based, they might encounter problems with bad image quality as the legacy coaxial cables age or image distortion when transmitting more than 200 meters, according to Lin. He also noted that re-cabling may cause hefty fees and problems in public safety, so users of HD analog products might need to take precautions of its future expansion. Instead, ccHDtv gives users ease of mind in the usage of coaxial cables.

Flexibility and Cost Effectiveness for Project Implementation
Due to ccHDtv's unique transmission technologies and the above-mentioned advantages, ccHDtv is suitable for middle- to large-scale projects. Lin further explained, “For a new-installation project, we hope to provide an alternative digital solution, besides IP. What ccHDtv focuses on is the project within eight to 16 cameras. In such a project scale, using ccHDtv system is very cost-effective in terms of the total cost of ownership, compared with using a total IP video surveillance system.” Again, using one single coaxial cable to connect multiple cameras saves high cost in cabling, and could be even more beneficial to a retrofit project, too.

On the other hand, ccHDtv could also be a complement for an existing IP video surveillance project too. According to the company, if the end users would like to expand their installation base, they can choose the ccHDtv solution. By using a ccHDtv ONVIF-compatible gateway, it can connect to their existing back-end IP systems, such as NVRs or CMS systems. “From our company's point of view, the system which utilizes both IP and ccHDtv technologies should be regarded as the most robust surveillance system. We should not put everything on the Internet, since it might cause problems in transmission and also bring future cyber security concerns. With this system, we provide a new concept of ‘IoT' and guarantee high performance and efficiency for a video surveillance system,” Lin explained.

Unique Selling Propositions for Projects
ccHDtv provides the security industry an alternative HD video surveillance solution, in addition to IP and analog technologies. However, what might intrigue systems integrators and installers the most might be its business potential. Lin explained that the security industry is now facing a major problem due to product standardization, which results in price competition and then low profit margin, even though the global market demand for security products is still increasing every year. In light of that, “since ccHDtv is so unique in its transmission technologies, we [ITE] ensure ccHDtv can provide systems integrators unique technologies for a project and most importantly, good profit margin,” said Lin.

In addition, particularly for some traditional “CCTV” installers, ccHDtv makes it very easy to install a camera without complex set-up procedures and cabling. So, even for an installer, who doesn't know much about network, they can still easily install ccHDtv products. “ccHDtv is a DTV technology, so it is very similar to a plug-and-play solution and provides a very flexible and cost-effective method to deploy a video surveillance system, which totally changes the mind-set of current project installation,” Lin emphasized.

This year, ccHDtv products are ready for market, with cameras, DVRs, gateways, and other accessories. “We will start the international marketing this year, targeting European market and then U.S., and Japan, who are the early adopters of DTV technologies in the world. We think those countries have a better understanding about DTV; therefore, ccHDtv would have a better opportunity there,” he added.

What Kinds of Projects Need ccHDtv Only?
ccHDtv can be the only solution in some special occasions. For example, “If you want to have over 16 daisy-chain surveillance cameras on one coaxial cable, ccHDtv is the only solution. If you have a coaxial cable that is over 1,000-meters ....... Read On

Honeywell security solutions chosen to secure Groupama's Noisy-Le-Grand premises

Honeywell security solutions chosen to secure Groupama's Noisy-Le-Grand premises

Editor / Provider: Honeywell | Updated: 4/16/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

The customer
Groupama is one of the largest mutual insurance groups in France providing insurance, banking and other services in 11 countries. Activeille is a subsidiary of Groupama focussing on the protection and remote monitoring of property and people since the 1990s. Activeille's services are APSAD certified, and include risk assessment as well as security system installation for Group members and customers. In 2011, under the direction of Activeille, Groupama decided to upgrade its security system at the Noisy-Le-Grand site located in Ile-de-France. Honeywell's video protection and intrusion detection solutions were chosen to secure the 40,000 square metre site. Christophe Pillet, key-account sales manager at Activeille, and Group security expert was appointed to oversee each stage of the project.

The situation
Built in the 1970s, the Groupama offices at Noisy-Le-Grand are spread across two buildings including 8 floors and 3 basements within which are offices, kitchens, and other facilities.

In addition to close to one thousand people accessing the Groupama buildings daily, the site is located adjacent to “Les Arcades” shopping centre and shares public access via an esplanade located between the two Groupama buildings which is also accessible to the centre's 12.5 million annual visitors. So risk on this site is therefore twofold; firstly with Groupama employees and customers and, secondly with the general public eager to access the shopping centre's retail space.

In 2011, Groupama recognised that its incumbent security system had become obsolete and no longer met the security standards required for this type of site. Activeille recommended that the entire security system be modernised. "We had to completely rethink the security system on the site, while adhering to APSAD certification standards. We had no video surveillance system, only an intrusion detection system. We wanted to put in place a comprehensive solution that would allow us to see the entire site," explains Christophe Pillet.

The solution
Implementation of the new security system was subject to a preliminary assessment carried out by Activeille, taking into account Groupama's needs and the specific requirements of the site. Following this assessment, the project was put out to tender. The solution had to allow the integration of video surveillance with the intruder detection system. Christophe Pillet explains why Honeywell's integrated solution was selected - "With the buildings being relatively large, we had to find technology that enabled us to secure all the premises while limiting the number of security guards required. The Honeywell solution allowed us to respond to all these challenges by combining the integrated intruder detection and access control system - Galaxy® Dimension with Network Video Recorders (NVRs) from the Honeywell Fusion range.”

The advantages
* Optimal security across the entire site
Given the surface area, location and multi-site infrastructure, Activeille had certain requirements for the security system. It required a solution that would provide remote, centralised management from security posts and also respond to the needs of the security team to improve their safety and increase their autonomy, particularly at night when the number of guards would be reduced. Activeille therefore installed the Galaxy Dimension integrated intruder detection and access control solution covering over two hundred zones and six Fusion NRVs at two control centres. The recorders manage eighty IP cameras, including two PTZ domes. Security guards can now monitor areas remotely from PC screens, which reduces the number of physical interventions required alone on site, thereby improving their safety and saving time. "The security system is like a second person", reports one of the site's security guards. Christophe Pillet adds "The intruder detection system is integrated with the video surveillance system, so when triggered, verification images are sent directly to the control centre, making it possible to manage the situation quickly, securely and effectively."

* A comprehensive security solution able to provide large-scale customisation
The Honeywell intruder-detection system makes it possible to define autonomous groups. "On this site we have identified up to 16 groups, enabling us to programme and set the alarm in specific areas of the building at certain times, while keeping other areas operational. The security system is operational 24/7 depending on which parts of the building are occupied. As an example, when the company's restaurant is closed, the intruder alarm is automatically activated. “This unique, integrated solution is really easy to use, programme and activate", explains Christophe Pillet.

*A reliable and certified security system
The new security system has been designed to be APSAD R81 certified, facilitated by the NF&A2P 3-shield certified Honeywell Galaxy Dimension solution. APSAD R81 is an installation regulation that defines minimal technical requirements and methods for implementing automatic detection systems designed to detect and alert to the approach, penetration and/or movement of an intruder in monitored areas. "To do this, we have fitted access control modules and motion sensors on the main entrances and emergency exits to provide two levels of detection. In the event of an alarm, the access control module will trigger the cameras. Hence video surveillance is in place, where cameras are automatically triggered to film the monitored area using cameras corresponding to the entrance in question. We can thereby verify the source and cause of an alarm quickly and easily. The risk of false alarms is reduced and the reliability of the system reinforced", explains Christophe Pillet.

Christophe Pillet concludes, "the implementation of this Honeywell system has allowed us to fully secure the entire site and all staff, as well as shopping centre customers who frequently use the esplanade, an area monitored by Activeille. Installing security cameras in this location has significantly reduced cases of vandalism and damage. We have expanded the Honeywell solution to other Group buildings, using the Galaxy® Dimension integrated intruder detection and access control solution and for video surveillance with Honeywell's Fusion NVRs and IP cameras. We also offer Honeywell solutions to our clients. For businesses with complex sites, we install the same system, while for residential properties and small businesses, we recommend Honeywell's Domonial wireless intruder alarm solution.”
