State of HD-SDI in 2013

State of HD-SDI in 2013

Editor / Provider: a&s International | Updated: 4/11/2013 | Article type: Tech Corner

Real-life HD-SDI deployments have been scarce, due to practical issues such as component options, truly full HD performance (1,080p at 25 to 30 fps per channel) and pricing acceptability; the relatively high costs of 8- and 16-channel packages have limited uptake by the traditional channels. Things are changing for the better in 2013, however, and this feature looks into what the future holds for this common broadcast technology in security.

HD is an unstoppable trend, thanks to advances in consumer electronics. Security surveillance has been bitten by the same bug; once you go for sharper images, you never go back. Previously, the only way to get better-than-analog surveillance footage was through megapixel cameras and NVRs. Not any more. According to IMS Research, HD over coax products (SDI, SLOC, 960H) are forecast to capture around 5 percent of the video surveillance market revenues by 2016; with the overall worldwide projection at US$20.5 billion, that means a slightly over $1-billion business.

Price has been a chief stumbling block. Choices in deliverable HD-SDI DVRs were limited and at a premium, until late 2012. “The average price for 4-channel HD-SDI DVRs has dropped about 30 percent,” said Danny Tang, VP of Sales and Marketing at Shany Electronic. “As more manufacturers and chip developers, more models are coming out. We are looking forward to the increased competitiveness this year.”

Tony Lin, Manager of EverFocus Electronics, agreed. “We foresee SDI prices coming down to a level on par with high-end traditional analog devices, with a better chance to win over customers looking to upgrade. We believe the improved product availability will hit squarely in the middle of the traditional analog market. This will include any market that hasn't already turned to IP.”

Applications That Could Benefit
Most of the approached industry contacts found it hard to see large-scale HD-SDI deployments, but some saw unique potential. “Our SDI solution is ideal for recording legal proceedings and can be used across multiple courtrooms simultaneously,” said Vanne Lin, Executive VP at iCatch. “Advantages include ease of use, no lag time or frame-rate interruptions, free from bandwidth limitations, stability and reliability, and high image quality.”

Keeping existing analog cabling infrastructure intact is another advantage. “For example, there are quite a few historic sites in Europe, and changing all the wiring to Ethernet might be out of the question,” Tang said. “We already have some European customers asking for HD-SDI solutions. Japan also shows great potential, due to a large analog installed base. To offer customized solutions and meet local needs, we designed features to include power over coaxial and remote control.”

More cost-effective HD-SDI bundles could spark increased deployment in retail. “In the U.S., chips and PIN codes on credit cards never caught on, and they still prefer to sign slips or checks,” said Alan Hayes, founder and MD of AMG Systems. “This slows down payment processing. Currently, there are considerations in terms of introducing ‘touch panel payment solutions' that the customer simply touches their credit card to a pad. [In this case], there may be a requirement for HD for proof of identity solutions.” Dahua Technology targets market segments that require HD but have huge existing coaxial infrastructure, such as banking, gaming and traffic monitoring. “Korea and Japan are leading SDI deployment in the APAC region,” said Xuping Zhong, Product Engineer at Dahua Technology. “Growth in other countries is moderate in verticals such as banking, casinos and city surveillance.”

Gas stations may also benefit from HD-SDI. “Gas stations mostly install only limited or basic surveillance,” said Lin of EverFocus. “We have noted, however, the need for increasing resolution in this sector, especially in self-service areas. Due the fact that gas stations are potentially dangerous environments, we believe that SDI is the perfect solution because it can provide resolution increases over existing coaxial cable.”

Advances in Components
HD-SDI reference designs are now available from Altera, Ambarella, Hisilicon Technologies, Texas Instruments and Xilinx, possibly making overall solutions more price-competitive. Increasing availability of ISPs also means that integrators and installers may need to pay more attention to different combinations and developments of sensors, FPGAs and reference designs, said Alf Chang, Senior Technical Consultant at a&s.

Design and Installation Considerations
The situation for video system designers has improved markedly over the last year with the widespread availability of HDcctv equipment, which makes any installer experienced with regular CCTV equipment already prepared to make the move to HD surveillance, said Todd Rockoff, Executive Director at HDcctv Alliance. “Despite this simplicity, newcomers to HDcctv should be aware of some technical points in interoperability, cable length, storage and integration. The next-generation HDcctv standard is on track for ratification mid-2013, bringing new capabilities and benefits for integrators and installers. The chips soon to be introduced that implement next-generation capabilities of the HDcctv standard promise to further accelerate the migration of security to HD surveillance video.”

HD-SDI Enabled
Some manufacturers are thinking ahead to offer easy migration or hybrid solutions for installers and end users. For instance, Hi Sharp offers HD-SDI and analog hybrid DVRs so that users can choose the most suitable cameras for different locations.

Shany provides DVRs with 2 channels of SDI and 8 channels of analog, along with embedded management software, to target the SMB market. Tribrid solutions, with IP, are available as well. “We will continue our efforts in easy-to-use remote configuration design and increased transmission distance to cope with the needs of installers,” Tang said. “SDI for nonsecurity applications and SDI speed domes are our R&D focus as well.”

Webgate (a Daemyung Enterprise company) will focus on integration of HD-SDI DVRs and ONVIF compliance to accommodate diverse user needs. “Since our HD-SDI DVR has network connectivity, video from our HD-SDI cameras can be acquired through a DVR or IP encoder,” said Chris Kim, Marketing Manager. “Hybrid products for analog and HD-SDI will lose their merits soon. We are preparing a long-term plan for hybrid products with IP and HD-SDI.”

iCatch concentrates on management software and mobile applications. “We are one of the first to develop 16-channel HD-SDI DVRs with real-time record/playback function in Asia,” Lin at iCatch said. “Users can fully enjoy the bundled CMS feature. In addition, the DVR also supports Windows/Mac OS and app (iOS/Android) platforms, so users are able to keep an eye on what they care about most, regardless of where they are. Users might not care or know whether their surveillance solutions are IP-based or HD-SDI, but they will care whether the surveillance system can be viewed and managed remotely.”

Top US bank upgrades 1,300 branches and facilities using hybrid solution

Editor / Provider: March Networks | Updated: 4/11/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

The Fifth Third Bancorp (FTB), one of the top 15 banks in the U.S., has launched an upgrade program to replace more than 1,600 of its existing March Networks NVRs with new hybrid models. The bank has already initiated the deployment, which reaches across its 1,300 full-service branches, data centers, corporate offices, operations and cash-handling facilities in the U.S.


"With the hybrid NVRs, we gain expanded IP camera capacity, dramatically improved image quality from existing analog cameras, and support for a range of software options that we hope to adopt in the future to combat losses from fraudulent transactions," said Mike Neugebauer, VP and Senior Manager of Safety and Security at FTB.


The recorders supports 32 IP cameras in an all IP video deployment, or hybrid combination of up to 16 analog and 16 IP cameras, which enables the bank to continue adding HD IP video capabilities, while taking full advantage of its existing analog surveillance investments. The NVRs' clear videos, also offers the improved image quality critical to identifying bill denominations and other detail. Advanced H.264 video compression ensures that the noticeably sharper video quality is captured without increasing bandwidth or storage requirements.


FTB is currently evaluating video and data analytics software for the financial industry, which is supported by the hybrid NVR platform. The software is proven to help banks and credit unions significantly reduce fraudulent losses through centralized searches on correlated surveillance video, transaction data, license plate numbers, colors, and facial images. The software proactively detects ATM skimming and cash harvesting, speeds investigations and helps financial institutions deliver clear and compelling case evidence to law enforcement. In addition, FTB is assessing the use of the software's queue-monitoring and loitering analytics enabled on the hybrid NVRs to gather valuable operational data, such as how customers are interacting with new self-serve kiosks it is introducing in select branches.

Asia Update: LILIN revamps to embrace IP

Asia Update: LILIN revamps to embrace IP

Editor / Provider: LILIN | Updated: 3/11/2013 | Article type: Hot Topics

Merit LILIN, a company that is no stranger to the security industry, was established in 1980 in Taipei, Taiwan. Under the charismatic leadership of Cheng Chung Hsu, President of LILIN, it is one of the few dynamic Taiwanese companies that was able to confront and overcome the turbulent times associated with the economy. Today, it has successfully transformed and shifted its main strength from analog to IP video surveillance.

Hsu, the personification of honesty and determination, embodied his ideals into his company. Since LILIN cares a great deal about the quality of its products, its high manufacturing costs make it almost impossible for the company to accept orders for OEM/ODM. Hsu once joked that he had no other choice but to set up his own branches to sell his products. All humor aside, it is evident that LILIN is a company dedicated to upholding its ideals of product quality and company image. Over the past 30 years, though LILIN did not invest in flashy marketing hype, the company still earned a reputation for quality based on exceptional product performance.

Determination to Go IP
LILIN had originally focused mainly on hardware and analog video surveillance products, but the falling prices for analog products, along with the increase in competition from China, from 2006 to 2007, drove Hsu to redirect his focus to IP products. Slowly, Hsu led his company to embark on its journey of IP development. LILIN took four years to launch its IP line into the market. Underlying factors can be attributed to a number of reasons. IP requires vast software proficiency, but LILIN's strength had been in hardware. In comparison to analog, which required a team of no more than 10 to develop, IP needed a much larger team, including network communication and software specialists. To produce and manufacture IP products, LILIN sought experts in IP and software design.

After encountering a series of obstructions in its early stages of development, LILIN was able to overcome its obstacles and ensure the compatibillity of its products with third-party solutions. The company successfully launched its IP products in 2011. Currently, its products are fully compatible with the top 15 leading VMS brands.

LILIN's network cameras are aimed at the mid-to high-end market, and emphasize excellent quality and reliability, Hsu said. Taking into consideration its late entrance into the IP market, LILIN's prices are set to be more flexible, providing end users with more quality products at an affordable price.

Aside from network cameras, LILIN also developed back-end storage systems, such as NVRs, available in four, nine and 16 channels. LILIN launched the industry's first embedded stand-alone touch NVR that supports a multi-touch screen and records 16 channels in full 1,080p HD at up to 25 frames per second. This NVR is currently at the forefront of its kind, as NVRs of other brands can only record four channels in 1,080p or 12 channels in full D1. Hsu reasoned that if the NVR was stand-alone, it should not resemble traditional models with regular front panels. Thus LILIN incorporated touch-screen technologies into the device. When connected to LILIN's own network cameras, the NVR will automatically detect and connect to them, simplifying the setup process for end users.

The NVR touch is also supported by LILIN's own software, a VMS capable of face recognition, tamper detection, masking and other functions. LILIN had strict requirements for the VMS, since it plays a crucial role in an IP system. Not only does it have to possess smooth and reliable performance, it must not skip any frames, lag, or freeze. After all, each frame is critical in terms of video surveillance. As of now, LILIN's software is free for up to 36 channels, while registration is required for 72 channels and above.

Furthermore, LILIN wants to strengthen its solutions for vertical markets. The field of IP revolves highly around system integration, and that is something LILIN plans to concentrate on. It is focusing on the retail sector, which requires highly integrated solutions with POS, alarms and audio systems.

Reforms in Products, And New Organization for IP
Today, LILIN has successfully established 12 branch offices all over the world, including the U.S., the U.K., France, China, and even Germany and Australia. This is something rarely seen from companies founded in Taiwan.

In the five years since the company made the decision to go IP, about 70 percent of its foreign sales are from IP products and the remaining 30 percent come from analog. Each of the foreign branches is able to rapidly grasp the IP technology within a short period of time because each product manager must enroll in all the trainings. Strict implementations were set in place for new hires as well. Even new sales candidates must have prior knowledge of this technology or have previous experience in an IT-related environment. They must also be able to develop new clients, while they educate existing clients about the benefits of IP video. New employees with IT-related knowledge hired in foreign branch offices rose to 60 percent.

Staying Ahead
As for 2013, LILIN is more than ready to embrace this new year with a fresh start and leave 2012 behind. LILIN will begin a total restructuring of all of its offices worldwide. The company's regulations will also change accordingly to allow for further advancement. Not only will Hsu continue an internal review of all his branches, Hsu plans to have all marketing for its different branches centralized at its headquarter in Taiwan. As of right now, LILIN's US office assumes first priority since the U.S. makes up a larger part of the global market share. Hsu intends to increase the number of employees in his US branch and distribute the remaining employees evenly throughout his different branches. LILIN's Chinese branches assume the next priority of total restructuring, as the market potential is enormous and proper management must be put in place.

An industry veteran, LILIN humbly reforms its teams and products to accommodate the swift transformation to IP. The company is striding into the new world of IP with the same serious dedication it started with
