Hikvision bundles technology and convenience for Shell gas station in South Africa

Hikvision bundles technology and convenience for Shell gas station in South Africa

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 6/27/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Johan van Zyl of South Africa has a very interesting hobby. Unlike many business owners, he considers security solutions an intriguing pastime.

As the owner of Shell Sentra Motors (a gas station / convenience store) located in the town of Bellville, in the Western Cape of South Africa, security is obviously a priority. However, it is not simply a means-to-an-end; instead it both an opportunity and a hobby: "I love playing around with computers and understanding what is happening in the tech world ... so when I began switching from analog to IP, I was really excited to see what Hikvision IP technology offers."

For Mr. van Zyl, it has already offered:
* allowing live-viewing from his home
* providing superior coverage, both indoors and outdoors
* increasing employee productivity
* providing additional business benefits

Convenience from Home
Mr. van Zyl lives near his Shell Sentra Motors station. As such, he often chooses to work from home, and was set upon incorporating this into his new solution, "I really wanted a solution that gave me much better resolution, but I also wanted the ability to access every camera from my home. This was a must for me," explained Mr. van Zyl.

To accomplish this, Hikvision's IVMS-4200 Client Software was installed for Mr. van Zyl to control the entire solution on his PC.

A Clear Inner World
Now, with the ability to view all of his cameras from any location, the benefit of IP technology was readily apparent. Inside the station, Hikvision's DS-2CD2112-I 1.3MP IP66 Network Mini Dome Camera, DS-2CD2712F-I(S) 1.3MP IP66 Network IR Dome Camera, and DS-2CD2412F-I (W) 1.3MP IR Cube Network Camera were all installed.

Each model filled a specific logistical need. For example, the DS-2CD2112-I 1.3MP IP66 Network Mini Dome Camera was chosen for its 1.3MP (1280 x 960) high resolution to better view the store's corner spaces. Previously, earlier analog cameras did not provide enough resolution quality in these areas, leaving virtual blind spots. With this improved camera quality, this is no longer a concern.

For the cash register, Mr. van Zyl had a slightly different goal, "I wanted great resolution, but also the ability to zoom in on details. Obviously, where money is handled, I wanted to verify what is going on in great detail, so I love being able to zoom in on a small item ... or zoom out to a larger overview."

To do so, the vandal-proof DS-2CD2712F-I(S) 1.3MP IP66 Network IR Dome Camera was selected. This model features identical 1.3MP high resolution, but adds a 2.8-12mm vari-focal lens to meet Mr. van Zyl's zooming requirement.

Rounding out the inside, Hikvision's DS-2CD2412F-I(W) 1.3MP IR Cube Network Camera was placed in office rooms located adjacent to the main shopping area. Interestingly, it wasn't only improved resolution that was key; it was also the camera's ability to hear. Since many business transactions take place in these office rooms, the DS-2CD2412F-I(W)'s audio microphone allows the camera to provide both a visual and audio record of any agreed upon terms. While this isn't always necessary, "It's a good form of protection, nonetheless," noted Mr. van Zyl.

A Safer Outer World
Outdoors, differing Hikvision cameras were again combined to provide security. For perimeter security, the DS-2CC11A2P-IRA Weather-proof IR Bullet Camera was placed on poles and onto building's corners.

Newly added on the top of gasoline pumps, the DS-2CC1197P(N)-A(-C) High Definition WDR Box Camera represents Mr. van Zyl's selectivity. Due to the ever-changing outdoor lighting conditions, this pump area represented a chronic security problem. For example, if the sun was in a particular location, issues with glare and backlighting would render most video images essentially useless. However the DS-2CC1197P(N)-A(-C)'s Digital Wide Dynamic range overcomes this backlighting issue for clear and usable images, regardless of time of day.

Lastly, located near the station's carwash facility, as well as selected indoor areas (such as the employee "break room," etc.) is the DS-2CE5582P(N) DIS Dome Camera; a camera model that provides a good overall picture of these environments.

More Than Just Stopping Robbers
Because of this improved IP resolution, Mr. van Zyl has already seen dramatic improvement both indoors and out. Now, gas pumps are just as secure as the cash register, and vice-versa.

However, this technology extends beyond traditional security concerns. "Obviously, I want better resolution in my cameras to stop crime-related loss, but I also want to improve overall employee productivity. For me to be able to work from home, and accurately see what is happening in my station, has made all the difference in the world ... for both me, and the betterment of my business," summed up Mr. van Zyl.

Axis releases F Series modular miniature cameras

Axis releases F Series modular miniature cameras

Editor / Provider: Axis | Updated: 6/18/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Axis Communications has newly introduced modular camera series --F Series-- that gives customers discreet surveillance solutions that provide high image detail, and allows great flexibility in choosing the units that are ideal for the installation.

Axis F Network Camera Series presents a highly flexible, modular network camera series that involves extremely discreet HDTV 1080p cameras with wide dynamic range. The new series is ideal for ATMs (automated teller machines), banks, stores, hotels, as well as rugged environments such as ambulances and police cars.

“Axis F Series enables great flexibility and discreetness with superb video performance, even in high-contrast lighting conditions,” says Erik Frannlid, Axis' Director of Product Management. “The series is based on a divided network camera concept, where the camera is split into a lens and image sensor unit, and a main unit. This concept was first introduced in the Axis P12 Series. When we developed the Axis F Series, we took into account the feedback we received from Axis P12 to provide customers with even better solutions.”

The divided network camera concept allows a small sensor unit to be installed discreetly in tight places and the bigger main unit to be placed elsewhere and away from public view. Axis F Series consists of units that are all sold separately. The series includes Axis F41 Main Unit and four compatible Axis F sensor units with different form factors and lens types for different field of views. Axis F41 Main Unit houses the processor, network, power, SD card slot and other connections, and can connect to one Axis F sensor unit. Each sensor unit, which consists of a lens and image sensor, comes with the choice of a 3-m or 12-m (10-ft. or 39-ft.) pre-mounted cable for connecting to the main unit.

“The small sensor units give users the flexibility to easily and discreetly install them, even in very tight spaces,” says Frannlid. “They can be flush-mounted in walls, ceilings, doorways, elevators and behind sheet metal with only the small lens surface visible—in the case of the pinhole unit, just a tiny hole for the lens. Certain Axis F sensor units can also withstand tough conditions such as vibrations, shocks and temperature fluctuations, which make them ideal for use inside and outside of emergency vehicles. The modular concept also gives customers the flexibility to purchase the sensor unit that is ideal for their application.”

Axis tailored surveillance solutions for Brazil luxury venture

Axis tailored surveillance solutions for Brazil luxury venture

Editor / Provider: Axis | Updated: 6/18/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Luxury venture in southern Brazil uses high-quality images to provide customers with security inside the building and in the parking lot.

Mission
Security is a major concern among shopping center patrons in Brazil, yet camera quality is not always up to the task of meeting these needs. When designing Patio Batel, an upscale shopping center in Curitiba, in the state of Parana, the Soifer Group opted for high-reliability cameras with good image quality.

Solution
Jugend, a consultant with extensive experience in shopping centers that has worked with Axis Communications on various projects, approved the installation of Axis equipment at Patio Batel. All three lines of Axis cameras were involved in the installation, from the most affordable to the highest performers – a total of 320 cameras and 14 different models. Important parts of the setup include the AXIS P3346-VE and AXIS P1346-E Network Cameras, offering Full HD image quality and advanced iris control. XProtectR Corporate software, from Axis partner Milestone, was chosen for image management.

Result
The choice of Axis equipment offers the shopping center operators increased reliability of their video surveillance system, in terms of both image display and storage. The peace of mind for this critical operation means a greater sense of security for shop owners and mall customers.

Parking facilities
Patio Batel is a large-scale development. Occupying 20,450 m2 of land, it houses 200 operations, in addition to 4 anchor stores. There are countless accesses, with various forms of internal circulation, involving 7 elevators and 32 escalators. This meant that even the very architecture of the shopping center was a challenge in terms of integration. The most critical areas were the vehicle entry and exit points, where the shopping center needed superb image quality in order to monitor access to its five-level garage with 2,300 covered spaces. These accesses were a concern because one of them faces Avenida do Batel, a roadway with high vehicle traffic that could not tolerate traffic jams at the mall entrance blocking the roadway. The other access, off Rua Hermes Fontes, experiences very bright sunlight at certain times of the day. This bright light can be blocked abruptly when a car passes by – a common situation in many parking lots. “The challenge was to use one camera with very fast light compensation speed. Based on a study conducted in conjunction with Axis, we decided on the AXIS P1346-E Network Camera. The camera handles light compensation using software, and it proved to be the best choice,” says Eduardo Wojciechowski, project manager at Axis's consulting partner Jugend. But this is not the only model used for vehicle access control. “We chose to work with several models of strategically positioned cameras, achieving complete coverage and ensuring quick staff response when needed.”

Variety of spaces
Shopping centers have specific surveillance needs. The heavy influx of people must be monitored from the moment they arrive, either by car or by pedestrian access. With a high volume of data traveling on the network, good database management is a necessity, and above all, fast and efficient video information search capabilities. The Patio Batel shopping center handles all this through cutting-edge solutions.
There are cameras covering the main entrance, technical areas, the food court, and access to ancillary areas such as bathrooms, baby changing facilities, the “teen space,” senior bathrooms, the information desk, and more. Some of the M-line models used include AXIS M3204 and AXIS M3014. From the P-line, the solution uses AXIS P3344, AXIS P3346-VE and AXIS P1346-E. AXIS Q6034-E Network Cameras from the Q-line were also installed. “The correct placement of each camera contributed to the creation of an efficient design,” says Cristiano de Morais Lima, for Patio Batel.

Milestone's XProtectR Corporate platform was selected to manage all 320 cameras. “Only major video management and storage solutions can offer this kind of reliability and efficiency in a system like this one,” notes Giovanni Ferraz, Channel Business Manager – Brazil at Milestone. The video wall located in the control room uses the XProtect Smart Wall Base License specifically. The shopping center's network assets are balanced for optimal performance of the video surveillance systems, with scalable redundant uplink throughput. “The right specifications for products such as cameras, switches and storage arrays required extensive deployment studies,” acknowledges Cristiano de Morais. Bandwidth was carefully defined, from the camera through storage, making Patio Batel an example for other newly built or expanding shopping centers.

FD8154V and IB8354-C are especially designed for diverse outdoor applications. Both cameras are encased in an IP66-rated weatherproof housing for protecting camera from rain, dust and harsh environmental conditions. FD8154V is especially made of IK10-rated vandal-proof housing, making it a robust choice.

Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK, stated, “With the rising demand for intelligent video content analysis and the high business value that the video contains, the video resolution, quality and usability should be taken into consideration at the same time. We are pleased to launch three new network cameras FD8154, FD8154V and IB8354-C with our advanced SNV technology. They are absolutely the ideal options for performing high quality surveillance around the clock.”
