Customized and networked security solution from Bosch for new prestigious building complex in Mexico City

Customized and networked security solution from Bosch for new prestigious building complex in Mexico City

Editor / Provider: Bosch Security Systems | Updated: 6/26/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Bosch Security Systems was chosen as the supplier of a comprehensive networked security solution for the new building complex Capital Reforma in Mexico's capital city. The solution comprises video surveillance systems, fire detection and voice evacuation systems as well as access control. The entire solution can be monitored and operated centrally.

Capital Reforma is located in a prestigious neighborhood with many tourist attractions, luxurious restaurants, office buildings and public art exhibitions. It has also become a traditional place for the Mexicans to celebrate; for example, many parades make their way through this avenue. Capital Reforma is a multi-purpose building complex with two 108 meter high towers each with 25 floors and 30.000 square meters of office space, 14.000 square meters of luxury condominiums and a parking space with 1.760 square meters. In order to provide a secure environment for visitors and anybody working or living in the building complex, a comprehensive security solution fulfilling any requirements of the different areas was needed.

With regard to fire detection, the local Bosch partner Insecom decided on an integrated and highly-scalable solution that is based on the Modular Fire Panel 5000 Series.

The selected fire detectors 420 Series guarantee fast and immediate response on the one hand, on the other hand robustness against false alarms and thus provide reliable operation in each of the different areas.

Miguel A. Reyes from Insecom confirms: "Bosch not only offers the flexible and high quality products we are looking for, but also proves to be a great partner to work with. Additionally, the Modular Fire Panel 5000 Series is much easier to install, operate and maintain than the third party systems we had mostly used in the past.”

An important aspect of the Bosch systems is also the offered backwards compatibility, something Insecom had missed with other suppliers before, where they had been faced with frequent model changes. The fire detection system is interfaced with the PLENA Voice Alarm system, which allows the operator to distribute targeted evacuation instructions tailored to the different areas and their escape routes.

A comprehensive video solution has been realized using the AUTODOME IP cameras, which meet the requirements of the building's aesthetic. The cameras provide high quality images, even in low light or high contrast. Access control is based on the Bosch AMC (Access Modular Controller) and efficiently rounds off the security solution. Access, registration and control of visitors and tenants are consequently ensured at any time.

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by VIVOTEK | Updated: 6/30/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

The Acapulco Resort, North Cyprus: Cyprus Tradition Meets Western Comfort
Located on the sparkling white sands of one of Northern Cyprus's most naturally beautiful beaches, and looking out over the shallow, crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea, the Acapulco Resort (North Cyprus) is not just a place to relax and have fun, it is a place to be seen. As well as a long, 1km stretch of golden sand beach, offering a wide range of water-sports, the resort also features the biggest pool complex in Northern Cyprus, replete with a waterfall and a sunken bar. And in the evening, as the sun melts into the ocean, the Acapulco Resort creates its own bright lights, with an extensive array of restaurants, an open air disco and bar, and the stylish, high-class Pasha casino.

The Challenge: A New Security System, Stylish and State of the Art, was Needed for the Casino
In any luxurious holiday resort, the safety of the guests and their personal belongings is of utmost importance and the Acapulco Resort spares no expense in this department. However, one area of the Resort has always posed the greatest challenge for any security system – that is the extensive and stylish Pasha Casino. While the casino is built for the comfort and entertainment of the Resort's high-rolling guests and thus must present an elegant face, the gaming area also needs to be monitored closely to ensure fair-play. Until this year the casino management had attempted to carry out this surveillance with an old analog surveillance system, but in 2015, they finally reached out to distributors ONCU to help them bring the casino's security system up to speed, as well as into style.

One of the great things about the Acapulco Resort is that there's such a wide variety of facilities available. However, the diverse range of facilities at the Pasha Casino presented a diverse range of security challenges. The surveillance system needed to be stylish and with a small footprint, it also needed to provide coverage of a range of areas, some brightly light and subject to glare, some with less light than most IP cameras could cope with. Perhaps most demanding was the casino floor, where precision focus was required to monitor the gaming activities.

The Solution: What Challenge? VIVOTEK's Wide Range of IP Cameras See More but Show Less
Thankfully, VIVOTEK, no stranger to diversity, or to challenges, provides such a wide range of IP cameras and surveillance solutions that the Pasha Casino could be covered without difficulty or fuss. Particularly well matched to the job were VIVOTEK's FE8181 and FE8181V fisheye network cameras which both offer 360-degree surround coverage while keeping out of sight, and Smart IR illumination to bring dark areas into view. The FD8135H fixed dome camera took care of the other end of the spectrum, with its WDR Pro enabling the camera to provide crystal clear imagery even in areas of high contrast light. The IP8371E bullet network camera played its part too, incorporating Smart Stream technology, which can be used to optimize resolution on a desired object or area to maximize bandwidth usage. Joining this already impressive team, VIVOTEK's SD8364E was chosen for its superb image quality, sophisticated pan/tilt mechanism, patrol function, auto detection and tracking modes, making the camera able to easily keep track of the busy action on the casino floor.

One hundred and thirty FD8168 ultra-mini fixed dome network cameras were also chosen for their unique ability to provide surveillance of the highest quality, while blending into even the most stylish interiors. Knowing how important it is to avoid down-time in a casino, VIVOTEK has also made the FD8168 extremely simple to install with compact housing and standard PoE power input design, as well as a MicroSD card slot for local storage use.

A casino presents another challenge for surveillance systems. While visibility is vitally important, not every area can be brightly lit. VIVOTEK's FD8169 fixed dome camera, equipped with 15 meter infrared and 3D Noise Reduction technology, is specifically designed to produce crystal clear images even when the lighting is set low to enhance the atmosphere of the casino.

With adopting the comprehensive surveillance solution of VIVOTEK, the full coverage is ensured as the games goes on. Even in the busy and constantly changing environment of the casino gaming floor, security operators can remotely monitor every flip of a card and every spin of a roulette wheel from their high-tech control room.

Making Total Surveillance Simple: VIVOTEK's VAST Central Management Software
As is clear, VIVOTEK has provided a broad range of IP cameras to meet the needs of the Pasha Casino. However, just because the network of cameras is diverse, doesn't mean managing them needs to be complicated or difficult. Thanks to VIVOTEK's self developed VMS VAST central management software, the whole system can be intuitively managed remotely. VAST supports hundreds of cameras and stations in a hierarchical structure of system for monitoring, recording, playback and event trigger management with ease-of-use and efficient control. Moreover, VAST also offers a video wall solution, VAST Matrix, allowing the live monitoring of hundred of cameras. Serving as the brains of this diverse team of IP cameras, VIVOTEK's VAST software ensures that this diverse range of VIVOTEK cameras all work in perfect harmony to ensure the safety of the guests of the Pasha Casino at the Acapulco Resort, North Cyprus.

H.265 — The hat of a magician

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by Dahua Technology | Updated: 6/8/2015 | Article type: Security 50

Driven by ever growing demand for high definition and the development of image processing, 4k is definitely a buzz word on the market, playing an increasingly vital role in video surveillance, especially in applications such as safe city, parking lot, harbor, plaza and elsewhere large scaled and has strong demand on detail capturing, which, at the same time, pressuring on decoding and storage. Luckily, we see a future there with the introduction and development of H.265, which brings extensive possibilities and optimism to the industry by addressing problems such as shortage of bandwidth, improving transmission efficiency and delivering other benefits.

Benefits of H.265
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, is a proposed video compression standard, a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), currently under joint development by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG).

Compared to the current mainstream AVC standard H.264, H.265 is said to be capable of further reducing by 50% the data rate requested for high quality video coding. Bitrate is acclaimed to have around 40% to 50% down at 1080pwhile
rendering superb image quality.

Put it in summary, first, H.265 can downsize video footage to a great extent while playing fairly smooth video with low bandwidth, and all these benefits further drives market demand on 4K/Ultra HD; second, with the fast development of 4G and mobile technology, the integration between the two industries will have much more amazing possibilities.

Dahua'sH.265 Product line-up
Despite all the benefits, the current phase seems a little bit embarrassed for H.265 as this compression standard is still new to video surveillance industry, which means it will take some time to be adopted and adapted. Dahua Technology, as a leading and innovative corporate, can't resist its charm and prospect, have the blue picture not only just in mind, but also bring it to reality already. The company has adopted H.265 in its latest product portfolio, including network camera, NVRs, transmission devices as well as video-wall systems.

To start with cameras, Dahua has a latest-released 5.0-Megapixel ultra-smart network camera that uses H.265/H.264 dual codec, allowing over 40% lesser bandwidth use while acquiring outstanding image quality. Moreover, with its functions such as ultra defog, RoI, and intelligent detections, the camera can make surveillance clearer, smarter and smoother; based on this trend, we can foresee more H.265 cameras in different resolution are on its way.

When it comes to back-end devices, Dahua was the first in industry to introduce a comprehensive H.265 4K NVR product lineup, which covers various demands, including small-to-medium as well as large-scaled applications. These NVRs are up to 12.0-Megapixel decoding capability, supporting 1080P@60fps and H.265 preview &playback; 4 channel 4Kreal-time live view & playback; meanwhile, its intelligence functions including behavioral analysis, facial detection and etc. are also supported. What worth mentioning is that the R&D team put energy consumption into consideration at planning phase to make the product ec0-friendly.

In addition, Dahua also introduced a control platform M70 with H.265 standard, the platform can decode multiple channels of H.265 videos at the same time; and thanks to modular design, M70 can maximize to handle up to 40-channel UHD video outputs with each supporting H.265 decoding; what's more, these HD output videos can be presented as an integrated image by combining HD outputs.

H.265 Brings More Possibilities
“Obviously, H.265 is one of the major compression standard that allow us to implement UHD solutions, such as 4K or even 8K, which is definitely the trend of video surveillance.” said James Wang, Product Director of Dahua Technology.

“The benefits H.265 brings are not limited to the above,” Wang continued, “just like a magician hat, you can expect much more from it, for example, our R&D has carried out some great performances on bitrate control, image quality balance as well as intelligent analytics and tracking.”

“For me, I always feel thrilled towards new things and technologies as they have the potential to nourish many new possibilities, to bring products, industry, even the society to a better shape,” Wang added. “H.265 is just the case, we have confidence to tap out of the potential of this standard and make full use of it, so my advice is stay with us, stay with the latest trend and see how we use it as a magic.”

The new 14 floor adult hospital will house 1109 beds, state of the art emergency, acute receiving, critical care, 30 modern operating theatres, diagnostic services and a full range of in-patient and day case paediatric services.

Part of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, the publicly funded hospital development gives Glasgow one of the most advanced adult acute service hospitals in the UK.

Working with CEM Approved Reseller Boston Networks the CEM AC2000 solution was selected as part of an overall Intelligent Building solution for this new state of the art hospital. Commenting on the partnership, Paul Goodbrand, Director of Intelligent Buildings, Boston Networks states, ‘‘Due to the sheer scale and complexity of the new South Glasgow Hospitals project, Boston Networks had to consider numerous factors when choosing our security partners, such as future proof technology, integration capabilities and the ability to provide a solution that would allow us to meet all elements of the installation and commissioning program”.

Solution
The CEM AC2000 system provides the South Glasgow Hospitals a powerful and fully integrated security management solution. AC2000 offers a comprehensive suite of client and browser based applications including central alarm monitoring, integrated command and control, sophisticated ID badging, visitor management and much more. The AC2000 set of software applications enhance site operations and security.

The new South Glasgow Hospitals utilize AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging & Pass Production System), which allows users to design professional, quality ID passes which can include text, logos, graphics, photos, barcodes and signatures. The hospital can easily personalize ID badges to suit their security requirements, enabling them to produce both permanent and temporary ID badges for medical staff, students, contractors and other people who require access to the building.

The Hospital is also using AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display). AC2000 AED provides a dynamic and real-time graphical view of all alarms and events that occur on the AC2000 system. AC2000 AED allows the hospital to easily view the status of their entire AC2000 system. Therefore if a door is forced at an access point, such as a ward entrance or pharmacy, an alarm will trigger on the AC200 AED, allowing hospital security to respond quickly.

Power over Ethernet
As a new building with an Ethernet infrastructure the hospital was also able to utilize CEM's Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. This means that only one Ethernet cable is required at the door, ensuring simplified installation and time savings; a welcomed benefit in such a huge project.

“The technological capabilities of CEM's unique Power over Ethernet (PoE) solution along with AC2000 met the needs of the Hospital's multifaceted Access Control demands and also provided Boston Networks with the integration capabilities essential to deliver a robust and future proof IP security solution, within program and budget”, continued Paul Goodbrand, Director of Intelligent Buildings, Boston Networks . “By having complete control of the installation and working closely with CEM, Boston Networks will ensure that we meet and exceed the project milestones, installation and commissioning dates.”

The AC2000 video interface for Pelco Endura provides the ability to associate access control alarms with Pelco Endura digital video clips. The system allows the Hospital to fully integrate the power of a Pelco Endura video system with the central AC2000 Alarm Event Display (AED) application. AED enables all alarms, events and associated camera footage to be displayed centrally on the AC2000 system.

The AC2000 Galaxy Dimension interface enables zones from intruder panels to be placed as icons on the AC2000 AED. This provides, on a single screen, a graphical representation of the physical layout of intruder sensors and allows for central alarm monitoring of both access control and intruder alarms.

CEM Hardware
The South Glasgow Hospitals have selected CEM EtherProx readers to secure the site. EtherProx is the industry's smallest Ethernet card reader with integrated keypad, LCD display and internal database giving off-line validation and intelligent decision-making at the point of entry, even when host communications are not available. EtherProx readers can display hospital cardholders with immediate text descriptions on the swipe of their card i.e. a hospital porter trying to access the hospital pharmacy may get the message - Access Denied and a red LED will flash indicating access has not be granted.
