2013 Security50 video trend(9-4): Total IP solutions are preferred

Editor / Provider: Jill Lai, a&s International | Updated: 11/15/2013 | Article type: Hot Topics

When it comes to IP, interoperability is significant. This pushes suppliers, especially those targeting the U.S. and European markets, to provide total IP solutions for customers to eliminate further problems from integration, installation and migration from analog to IP.

“Our strategy is to offer a complete one-stop-shop solution. Packaged as a single source solution, it comprises a range of IP cameras and NVRs, as well as all the necessary network accessories. We identified that installers did not want to involve third-party IT vendors into the buying chain and end users weren't happy with additional margin added to the mix. We provide everything an installer will need to build a complete next-generation networked and HD surveillance solution,” said Brian Song, MD, IDIS Europe.

“Panasonic is unique in its ability to provide customers with a complete end-to-end solution from a single manufacturer, including software, cameras and hardware- or software-based recorders so we can deliver a complete video surveillance and security solution, or support a hybrid environment and help customers migrate over time,”said Greg Peratt, Senior Director of the Video Solutions Integration Team, North America, Panasonic System Communications.

 “End users/customers do not want products, they want solutions. The key to this is flexibility of choice. As a manufacturer, we understand that the requirements of end users are diverse. They can vary greatly depending on the unique characteristics of each individual customer. For this reason, our customers can choose a complete Samsung solution or they can integrate our product with products sourced from our network of partners that we have established and continue to grow, in order to be able to offer solutions together,” said Jonas Andersson, Senior Vice President for Product Planning and Strategic Marketing, Samsung Techwin.

Port of Greater Baton Rouge improves IP surveillance system with Bosch

Port of Greater Baton Rouge improves IP surveillance system with Bosch

Editor / Provider: Bosch Security Systems | Updated: 11/8/2013 | Article type: Infrastructure

Port of Greater Baton Rouge is one of the top 10 ports in the United States. It is situated 230 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, covering multiple facilities that spam 85 miles in its Port jurisdiction.

Business Objective:
The port needed a security solution that would ensure the secure transportation of cargo and the safety of staff and visitors working within the port as well as personnel of tenant companies with operations on port property. The solution also needed to conquer the logistical issues of port's main Terminal and Inland Rivers Terminal; example issues are distance between locations.

The installation includes more than 50 fixed and PTZ cameras, with VideoJet X10 and VIP X1 encoders strategically placed throughout each location. Connectivity to the cameras and encoders is provided via an IP network, including point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless devices, as well as more than a mile of multi-mode fiber optic cable.

Protection against intermittent network connectivity is built into the system with the use of encoders with two gigabytes of storage. If network connectivity is lost, recording at the edge continues. Once connectivity is restored, the central NVR tracks any gaps in the recording and automatically replenishes the missing pieces with the stored video.

Each authorized operator has instant access to live video from all cameras, as well as any new camera that may be added to the system, using the VIDOS Video Management Software Suite. Archived video is stored centrally on four NVRs using several terabytes of fault-tolerant RAID array storage.

Cameras positioned on the Mississippi River feature video content analysis capabilities, which primarily help to draw operators' attention to significant events, while also reducing the amount of video traffic sent across the network. Using VCA at the edge, only alarm video, such as a vessel moving up the shipping channel or an unauthorized ship present in the river, is transmitted. An alarm notifies security officers and a PTZ camera will automatically track the vessel.

The cost-effective system allows key personnel access to security data from a number of locations. With remote management tools, port executives and facility security officers can manage the installed devices from the internal network or through secured Internet access.

The solution is an essential element to security, stepping in where fencing and gates is impractical, if not impossible, along the waterfront.

Hikvision upgrades Kuwaiti supermarket security system

Hikvision upgrades Kuwaiti supermarket security system

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 10/31/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

While names like the Los Angeles-based Ralphs appear ubiquitous for the United States due to the popularity of Hollywood filming in this area; in Kuwait the market leader is Rawda & Coop Society. In fact, with 16 branches, it is also the largest coop in the country.

Rawda & Coop Society contacted Atheer United Company which an authorised distributor of Hikvision in Kuwait to improve overall security. Atheer United introduced Hikvision to the top Management of the COOP by several presentations & demos and after getting the acceptance they required:
- Monitor cashier areas in high resolution
- Provide better surveillance and control for the exterior of entrance areas
- Provide a better method to centralize security operations

Eng.Ali Taleb, Business Development Manager at Atheer United Company - the Integrator / Installer of this project - noted that "a big focus was put on bringing high-resolution megapixel technology to every register. Coop management wanted to very clearly see the detailed exchange of money between customers and employees."

Largely, this goal stemmed from a high incident rate of disagreements between customers and employees, as well as incidents of theft and balance issues with cashier trays at the end of employee shifts. Previously, the best - and only - resolution method was to simply deal with each problem after the fact. This was not only slow, but highly inefficient.

To reverse this trend to a proactive stance instead of a reactive stance, Atheer United Company chose Hikvision's DS-2CD7153-E 2 MP Network Mini Dome Camera. Placed opposite each register, "Coop management is now able to see what is happening in real-time and react accordingly. Most importantly, 2 megapixel resolution provides the means needed to achieve this goal," noted Mr. Taleb. Additionally, the DS-2CD7153-E's 1/3” progressive scan CMOS and HD 720P real-time video give additional tools to make sure these images are clearly visible. With this new technology, Coop management has already seen a markedly improved situation at the registers, as well as far fewer incidents of dispute regarding these related issues.

Another goal helped with Hikvision technology was a better, and more secure, environment for both the main entrance and the general areas in front of the stores. In this case, it was the DS-2DF1-512 5" Network PTZ Dome that secured this environment.

Based on the fact that these areas are potentially very large, the DS-2DF1-512 was placed outside the store. As such, this model's IP66 rating was a perquisite due to the challenging weather conditions Kuwait presents.

In addition, due to the previously-noted issue of large coverage areas, Atheer United Company assessed the DS-2DF1-512's 12x optical zoom and its 360° endless pan range and -5°-185° tilt range as equally vital.

Eng. Taleb added, "This model not only provided tremendous value from an overall solution standpoint, but security personnel are able to completely control the DS-2DF1-512 with Hikvision's DS-1100KI Network Keyboard further adding convenience to the overall solution and drastically reducing training time requirements for Coop personnel."

Finally, the goal of streamlining all 16 individual branches' security needs into one centrally-located control room was also facilitated by Hikvision. In this case, it was not a camera model, but instead NVRs. Specifically, three Hikvision NVR models: the DS-7608NI-ST, DS-7616NI-ST, and the DS-8632NI-ST NVR Series.

While each model differs in its specific approach (for example: the DS-7608NI-ST's smaller size and smaller camera capacity with 8 channels makes it ideal for smaller Rawda & Coop Society shops, while the DS-8632NI-ST's dramatically larger memory and 32 channels camera capacity provide for larger branches), all three models provide up-to 5 megapixel resolution recording to make sure that regardless of number of camera units, or store size, the pictures are crystal clear.

But for Rawda & Coop Society, Internet connectivity tied this whole solution together. Previously, individual shops were not connected to the main headquarters also in Kuwait. This obviously exacerbated all of the earlier problems. However, with Internet-capable Hikvision NVRs, now each of the 16 shops are wired to corporate headquarters. Specifically, all security responsibilities are now a function of one specially-designed central control room.

This sharply contrasts with the previous method of security being a responsibility of 16 smaller, and uneven, in-house procedures.

In this fashion, Coop management - with the help of both the Atheer United Company and Hikvision technology - streamlined and addressed chronic problems in a proactive, rather than inefficient, reactive manner. Most importantly, all of these issues have become greatly improved.

All Dahua NVRs conform to ONVIF protocol and support a wide range of third party cameras.

Taiwan update: Go for IP transition or get left behind

Taiwan update: Go for IP transition or get left behind

Editor / Provider: a&s editor | Updated: 10/16/2013 | Article type: Hot Topics

Concluding with the its resounding success, Taiwan Security Road Show 2013 consisted of several seminars focusing on HD solutions and industrial safety and risk management. Here are some trends and findings from the show:

IP Demand Evident
70 percent of project-based and government bidding in Taiwan have gone IP while projects in Taipei took up 50 percent, followed by cases in Kaohsiung. However, cases in Taichung are still analog-oriented, some of which even analog exclusive.

From the perspective of verticals, current hybrid systems for traffic monitoring will gradually be upgraded to full IP ones. On the other hand, residential and commercial sectors such as apartment buildings, retails, and temples are still analog-based.

Total Solution Shines
To ride with this IP tide, local integrators were searching for collaborating opportunities via the show. Despite with great numbers of cameras and NVRs, many local brands are still insufficient with large scale IP integration experiences and outgunned by international brands. With advantages of complete product line, scalable and flexible solutions, and extensive international experiences, foreign brands such as Axis Communications, Bosch Security are winning big contracts. It is expeted that Arecont Vision, Avigilon, Genetec, Mobotix , Milestone Systems, Nice Systems and many more will join the pursuit.

Make it or Break it
Under this weather of IP migration, local brands are eager to reorganized their business structure and maximize IP offerings. For those manufacturers who successfully move from analog to IP such as Dynacolor and Hunt Electronic, fruitful rewards are reflected in revenues and profits. Automation controller and software provider, Adcantech, rejoins the security market to take market share as well.

Regulations safeguard bank security

Regulations safeguard bank security

Editor / Provider: Alyssa Fann, a&s International | Updated: 10/18/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Banks are where the money is and although online banking has reduced customer visits to the bank, the brick-and-mortar branch bank is here to stay and remains a crucial component of financial institutions. Taking the U.S. for example, a survey by consulting firm Novantas2 showed that the branch remains the preferred sales and service channel for opening accounts (75 %), getting advice (58 %), and buying financial products (62%). In other words, bank customers are not ready to phase out brick-and-mortar banks to migrate completely to the virtual banking world.

For the security industry, opportunities come from several areas. First, the upgrading of legacy systems in surveillance, access control, and alarms offers plenty of business opportunities. Next, mergers and acquisitions in the financial sector also represent business opportunities as corporate policies on security might have differed and would now have to be unified or brought together under the expanded corporation. Finally, like every other sector, the financial sector faces changing threats and security systems need to be upgraded to adequately address new challenges that include sophisticated crime organizations armed with state-of-art technology.

Hence, the security market in this vertical is still very much present. System integrators, however, need to understand the specialized needs of the financial sector, such as dealing with large sums of cash and being subjected to robberies and fraud on a daily basis.

In financial transactions, every transaction is akin to a legally binding action. Every piece of document and security footprint serves to legitimize the transaction, such as the withdrawal of money by a specific customer that took place. Coupled with the daily risks of robberies and fraud, bank security systems are often subjected to government regulations. The experienced system integrator would have to ensure that all minimum requirements are met.

At the same time, there are corporate policies on security that need to be taken into account. In other words, when designing a bank security system, banks would consider their corporate policies, in addition to government regulations. These are then assessed against local security conditions to determine the level of security necessary and the systems that are to be deployed. With regards to government regulations, some banks will undoubtedly simply adhere to standard government regulations, while others will exceed them depending on corporate policies and perceived threats.

Regional Differences in Legislation
Manufacturers are well aware of the differences in government regulations. “Within the European Union, each country has its own approach in terms of the legal requirements for bank security. In Germany, for example, bank security is covered by health and safety regulations, which are relevant for all workplaces dealing with a certain amount of cash. So while this applies to banks, it may also be appropriate for the money-counting room in a huge cinema,” said Stephan Beckmann, Product Marketing Manager of EMEA at Tyco Security Products.

While the overarching main document in the U.S. for banks to follow is the Bank Protection Act, there are other regulations, including state stipulated ones. “The Bank Protection Act is the main document that must be followed, but Regulation H from the Board of Governors of the Federal System also governs membership of state banking institutions, including describing a member bank's obligation to implement security procedures to discourage certain crimes,” mentioned Chris Mullins, North American Inter-Company Sales Manager — Banking and Financial at American Dynamics (Tyco Security Products).

Security Equipment Requirements
Each region has its own regulations pertaining to physical security installations, such as equipment standards and storage requirements. “In Germany, video hardware such as cameras and NVRs must be UVV-Kassen certified, which is the health and safety standard,” said Beckmann. “When looking at regulations regarding camera types and locations, there are test charts and testing procedures that an UVV-Kassen compliant camera installation has to pass after the installation. For instance, the picture quality for the camera at the cash desk must support proper identification of individuals, while other cameras must provide an overview of the scene,” added Beckmann.

In Asia, banks in Hong Kong are required to have bulletproof windows, while armed guards are employed at Singaporean banks. On the other hand, although banks are permitted to apply for armed guards in Taiwan, most banks do not feel the need to do so, based on risk assessments of local conditions. In other words, while there are government regulations, some clauses may not be mandatory and banks have the flexibility to adjust accordingly to their risk analysis conclusions. Hence, the security solution deployed depends on a combination of factors that include corporate policy, government and insurance regulations, lifestyle determinants, and preferred equipment.

Storage Period
Video storage length is regulated by law and varies vastly between countries. European countries tend to have stricter privacy laws. “Countries such as Austria, Germany, and France limit the maximum length of stored video to a few days, but for banks, incident-related footage must be stored longer — at least 10 days or until it is released as a protected partition of the video system,” mentioned Beckmann.

Across the Atlantic pond, “some local jurisdictions impose their own specific regulations, such as the New York ATM lobby law — the ATM lobby has to be fully covered for video so there is no dead space and there is adequate resolution,” noted Mullins. “In Maryland, there exists a regulation that ATM video has to be kept for 60 days, although a general rule of thumb is usually 90 days,” Mullins added.

In China, where there are more explicit regulations, recorded video from around ATMs and behind the teller lines are stored for three months. The storage period for other areas of banks, such as waiting areas and halls, is one month.

As most banks have overseas branches, some may choose to unify video storage policies across their branches.

Intrusion Alarms
Intrusion alarms are the first line of defense when unauthorized people attempt to access bank zones with malicious intent. In Europe, the EN 50131 standard is driving the adoption of video-enhanced verification, which aims to combat the false alarms issue common with traditional alarm systems to enable more effective, faster police response and save the customer from paying fines incurred by false alarms. The EN 50131 sets a grading system for installations and guides the prioritizing of responses from local law enforcement. The choice of the grade level varies between countries and is largely guided by insurance companies. The deadline for mandatory adherence also varies between countries, but 70 percent of the market in Spain and roughly 50 percent in the Nordics are already employing video-enhanced verification.

“Most countries refer to European standards on intruder systems. [However], in Germany, there is another organization, originally founded by insurance companies, called VdS. VdS provides regulatory guidelines such as which devices should be used, and how the overall security system should be configured,” noted Beckmann.

While there doesn't appear to be an explicit government standard in the U.S., “intrusion alarms have to be registered with local jurisdictions in most cases,” commented Mullins. “[This way] if the police departments receive an alarm, they have prior knowledge about the location of that alarm.” Nevertheless, there is a trend towards video-enhanced verification for intruder alarms.

In the end, a key factor to success in the banking and financial vertical is to understand the security needs of these customers and assist them in integrating their corporate policies with government and insurance regulations in their security solutions. While the security equipment used may be no different to other verticals, banks security systems are more likely to be subjected to regulations due to their business nature. Security systems in this vertical need to be legally viable if necessary. Mergers, acquisitions, and upgrades will continue to create business opportunities for the security industry.
