Bosch launches DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera

Bosch launches DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera

Editor / Provider: Bosch | Updated: 6/20/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Regardless of time-of-day, object of interest movement or extreme low light situations, the new 5 megapixel DINION IP starlight 8000 MP camera delivers relevant IP video images 24/7. With this video surveillance camera, Bosch Security Systems sets a new quality benchmark in round-the-clock video surveillance. Due to its comprehensive technical specifications this is the ultimate 24/7 camera securing critical infrastructures, parking lots, city surveillance projects and many other applications with challenging lighting conditions.

Becoming the ultimate 24/7 camera
The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP delivers five megapixel details even in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 5 megapixel resolution at up to 30 frames per-second. The latest sensor technology combined with the sophisticated noise suppression results in a light sensitivity of 0.0121 lux at full 5 megapixel resolutions in color and even 0.00825 lux at 1080p resolution. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP produces full color images in the dark beyond the point where other cameras have turned to monochrome images. Where others show no image at all, it still delivers detailed monochrome images. Possible disturbances caused by fluctuating front or backlight are eliminated by Bosch' built-in intelligence. The intelligent Auto Exposure (iAE) technology dynamically adjusts the exposure of the camera to automatically adapt to changing light conditions providing perfect exposure of objects of interest every time. The iAE technology also contributes to the outstanding dynamic range of the camera which boasts a massive 103+16 dB for the 1080p mode.

Intelligent Video Analysis
Another differentiating feature of the DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is built-in Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA). It helps to focus on relevant situations by alerting you when needed, or automatically track objects of interest. IVA also adds sense and structure to video data by adding metadata. This allows the quick retrieval of the relevant images from hours of stored video. Metadata can also be used to deliver irrefutable forensic evidence or to optimize business processes based on, for example, people counting or crowd density information. By using the camera's ability to simultaneously combine 8 of the 15 available IVA rules, complex tasks are made easy and false alarms are reduced to a minimum.

24/7 remote access and camera control
Limited bandwidth makes it impossible to stream HD video on mobile devices whereas Dynamic Transcoding delivers both smooth live video streaming and instant access to HD (1080p) images when needed, regardless of available bandwidth. It also allows access to camera controls, live video streams and HD images via a mobile device anytime from anywhere. Dynamic Transcoding also enables you to instantly retrieve the correct video data from hours of recorded material. The DINION IP starlight 8000 MP is supported by Dynamic Transcoding in 1080p mode in combination with either one of the Bosch DIVAR IP recording solutions or a Bosch VIDEOJET.

Lower storage costs and network strain
To reduce storage costs and network strain the camera features intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction (iDNR). The power of this technology is that it leads to bandwidth only being used when needed. When there is little or no movement in the scene, less bitrate is required. Therefore, iDNR actively analyses the scene distinguishing between relevant information such as moving objects and image noise artifacts. The degree of noise reduction is adjusted accordingly so that important objects are captured and image noise artifacts suppressed, optimizing the camera's bitrate. Thus, iDNR saves up to 50% on bitrate and hence storage and network strain without compromising video quality. Local storage on the camera further enhances network performance by compensating for short network outages, so ensuring that video data is continuously available in VRM systems without breaks.

Bosch IP standard-definition and high-definition cameras, encoders and analytics work seamlessly with a wide range of security software and recording solutions from Bosch and many other industry providers. This is backed by ONVIF conformance (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and the Integration Partner Program (IPP), which gives developers immediate access to software development tools to easily integrate Bosch products with third-party systems. Further details of the Bosch Integration Partner Program are available at ipp.boschsecurity.com.

Condominium in Brazil installs Axis full HDTV cameras

Condominium in Brazil installs Axis full HDTV cameras

Editor / Provider: Axis | Updated: 6/19/2014 | Article type: Residential & Consumer

Mission
The Helbor Magnifique residential condominium, located in downtown Joinville, in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, is comprised of three 18-story towers, with two units on each floor. More than 100 families come and go at all hours using three separate entrances, overseen by a 24-hour security desk that also monitors vehicles entering and leaving the development's parking area, with nearly 350 parking spaces. The video surveillance system therefore needed to be able to handle the size and busy activity of the condominium development.

Solution
A study was conducted to identify the surveillance points needed to provide complete coverage of the condominium facility, including all common areas and entrances for residents, employees, and service providers, among others, as well as the surrounding areas. The study suggested installing 79 Axis network cameras. Traders Service, an Axis partner, installed AXIS P1357 full HDTV network cameras, along with Axis high-resolution models AXIS P1354 and AXIS M2014-E. The elevators were equipped with AXIS M3113-R units. All cameras are managed using software from Aimetis, another Axis partner.

Result
The Helbor Magnifique condominium became a trendsetter in Brazil as the first residential building to install a professional video surveillance system using full HD cameras. The wide coverage provided by these cameras enables 24-hour surveillance of building interiors and the surrounding area, ensuring that all residents enjoy the sense of security that they expect at home.

Mixed transmission mode
Due to the horizontal and vertical distances the video surveillance system needed to cover, Traders Service chose to use Ethernet cabling throughout the project, except in the elevators. In order to avoid running cables over the entire 70 meters between the lowest level of the garage and the top floor of the buildings, Traders Service opted for wireless transmission using AXIS M3113-R Network Cameras. The client said that the motors did not create any interference in the image quality provided by the cameras. In such a varied environment, the ability to create appropriate solutions for each space was essential. The entire property, covering 130,000 square feet, has a recreational area that includes swimming pools, saunas, a spa, yoga room, multi-sports court, fitness area, playroom, party rooms, home cinema, home office facilities and a games room, as well as gardens and patios, adding complexity to the undertaking's security needs. Some 31 AXIS M1054 units were installed in the hallways in the residential and service areas. There is also an AXIS M2014-E bullet-style camera in the corridor leading to the service entrance using Corridor Format, a feature unique to Axis. This transforms the 16:9 HDTV camera image aspect ratio to 9:16 - ideal for corridors, entryways or narrow passages. This feature maximizes image quality and eliminates wasted bandwidth and storage space.
The underground garage has three interconnected levels that have access to the shared service area and elevators. 18 AXIS P1354 day/night camera units were installed here, providing fixed video surveillance offering high performance, robust design. Another nineteen AXIS P1357 units were installed to cover the outdoor areas of the condominium; these allow large areas to be scanned, while maintaining exceptional image detail. These day/night cameras feature a P-Iris lens to provide optimal image clarity.

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.

The ease of high-quality and high-definition video is the most important piece. Users can take the HD-SDI video and record it in 1080P, and watch the HD-SDI video remotely or locally – EverFocus makes it easy and cost-effective. Everyone can benefit from this beautiful resolution in HD-SDI. EverFocus expects a substantial portion of our revenues to be attributed to HD-SDI going forward.

Since EverFocus has made the acceptable HD-SDI products to the market, applications of the HD-SDI solutions is no longer exclusive to the high-end markets, but can be widely applied in different sectors. In the early 2014, EverFocus built up the HD-SDI systems, including 20 DVRs (EPHD04+) and 50 outdoor IR dome cameras (EHH5101) on the NEXCO-West (West Nippon Expressway Company) highway toll booths located in Hiroshima, Yamaguchi, Japan. According to the customer, the toll booths require a system that is reliable and can produce clear images both on the staff or the POS machine. Moreover, cameras with anti-raining/snowing and small-in-size features are considered as the key considerations in this case. Therefore, they chose EverFocus' HD-SDI DVR and outdoor IR dome camera.

At present, HD-SDI product lineup that EverFocus offers includes HD-SDI DVRs up to 8-channel, and HD-SDI cameras with variable types, including mini metal, bullet, dome, and box types. The outdoor HD-SDI cameras are also IP66-rated for weather resistance. Furthermore, EverFocus also provide HD-SDI accessories, including HD-SDI to HDMI converter, HD-SDI to fiber transmitter/receiver and HD-SDI repeater. The UHDR16 universal DVR will be soon released to the market in June, 2014. With the announcement of the UHDR16 universal DVR, users can benefit from its low latency, best-live-view HD-SDI signals over hundreds of meters of coaxial or Cat5e/Cat6 cables and easy installation with an affordable price.
