Samsung Techwin adds 6 new 3MP IP cams to WiseNetIII family

Samsung Techwin adds 6 new 3MP IP cams to WiseNetIII family

Editor / Provider: Samsung Techwin | Updated: 5/19/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Samsung Techwin has further expanded its WiseNetIII network camera range by adding six new 3 megapixel models.

The new ONVIF compliant day/night network cameras and domes are all able to capture high quality colour images when lighting levels are as low as 0.1 Lux at an ultra fast frame rate of 30fps at 2048 x 1536P. They are designed for retail, education and healthcare applications as well as for any environment where evidence grade images are required, such as airports, ports car parks and other transport facilities.

“We can now offer a family of WiseNetIII 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel network cameras and domes which collectively provide customers with the flexibility to specify the ideal high definition model to match the requirements of each individual camera location,” said Tim Biddulph, Product Manager for the security solution division of Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “We are confident that the outstanding quality of the images captured by the new 3 megapixel cameras will attract the attention of installers and systems integrators across Europe, whilst our high definition 1.3 and 2 megapixel models continue to offer outstanding value for applications where bandwidth limitations and storage requirements are important considerations, as well as image quality.”

All of the models in the new WiseNetIII 3 megapixel series utilise P-iris technology which optimises clarity and depth of field, whilst enhanced Wide Dynamic Range, which with performance greater than 120dB, overcomes the challenge of monitoring areas such as receptions or lobbies where there may be strong external lighting and large amounts of glass.

Utilising bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, all of the models incorporate a multi-crop feature, enabling users to highlight and crop areas of interest in order for the camera to only send the images within that area at a preferred resolution and frame rate. A full overview, as well as multiple cropped images from the whole area, can if required, be transmitted simultaneously with this flexibility in the video's resolution and frame rate, allowing a much smarter and efficient use of the available network bandwidth.

Built-in Intelligent Video Analytics(IVA)
The new models are also equipped with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as face detection, tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear and ‘tampering', which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view. Alternatively, the motion detection technology built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset can greatly reduce the false alarm rate by learning what the normal motion of the scene is and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees.

Other key features include Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), which negates the effects of vibration, and Defog which can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog. A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card.

The 6 new models in the WiseNetIII network 3MP series
* SNB-7004 – 3 megapixel network box camera
* SNO-7084R - 3 megapixel network weather proof IR bullet camera
* SND-7084 - 3 megapixel network dome camera
* SND-7084R - 3 megapixel network IR dome camera
* SNV-7084 - 3 megapixel vandal-resistant network dome camera

Hikvision provides safer schooling environment in South Africa

Hikvision provides safer schooling environment in South Africa

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 5/14/2014 | Article type: Education

It seems there isn't a week that goes by where some type of horrific school-related incident is in the news. This phenomena isn't linked to any country, but the unfortunate script usually includes someone - often a student - arriving on campus intent on doing harm to fellow classmates and faculty.

While this represents the absolute worst case scenario, there is also a less dramatic variety that has recently gotten a great deal of traction: bullying.

A great deal of effort has been put into the elimination of student bullying. Much time has been spent on the best possible methods to reduce this phenomena, and one tool that is gaining popularity is the usage of professional CCTV solutions.

South African Campus
In South Africa's Western Cape Province lies the town of Strand. Known for its beautiful beaches, the town also has excellent academic facilities, with one of these being Strand High School.

Fortunately, Strand High School offers a peaceful learning environment to provide an excellent Afrikaans school education for its student body.

Recently however, as a proactive measure, school administrators drew up plans for a security solution that would:
* make sure that school rules and regulations are adhered to
* decrease occurrences of bullying
* offer clear video surveillance of school entrances and exits
* monitor any individual entering onto, or leaving, school property
* offer clear video surveillance over athletic fields and general school grounds

From Idea to Reality
In essence, administrators wanted a CCTV solution that would provide surveillance over access control and the school's general grounds.

To turn this idea into a reality, Hikvision's Official South African Distributer, Sensor, and South African security installer Cam Live Vision combined to design, and install, a solution that addresses these security goals.

Ben Bekker, Director of Cam Live Vision, noted, "It became clear in the initial stages that the specifications of the client, combined with school budget concerns, required that very specific cameras were used ... we had to be very intelligent about designing a solution that addressed these often disparate goals."

PTZ for Close and Far
Mr. Bekker opted for a PTZ model to cover surrounding school grounds (including playing fields, outdoor cafeteria, and parking garage), as well providing optimal viewing of school entrances and exits.

Specifically, Hikvision's Smart PTZ — DS-2DF7284 Series 2MP Network IR PTZ Dome Camera was chosen. With units placed on the front and back of the school building, PTZ functionality offers a full 360° of coverage.

However, this PTZ functionality is only one piece of the puzzle. Another was a 20x optical zoom that provides the coverage needed for all the school, in its entirety. Yet, "It's the DS-2DF7284's 2MP resolution that allows the school Principle and Vice Principle to accurately identify an individual ... regardless if they are at the main front entrance or behind the rugby field," explained Mr. Bekker.

One additional bonus is this model's Smart IR capability and 150m of IR range, a tool "that is definitely of use during the night, to give us security even if students are not present," Mr. Bekker added.

Box Cameras for Indoor and Other Areas
Hikvision box cameras were chosen for indoor locations and specific outdoor areas. The DS-2CD864F-E(W) 1.3MP Network Box Camera was combined with Hikvision's TV0309D-MPIR Lens to view indoor school hallways, indoor cafeteria, and outdoor courtyard space. As this courtyard is largely covered, weatherproofing was not a camera issue.

As with the previous speed dome, great megapixel resolution was also a must. However, with the addition of the TV0309D-MPIR lens, spaces that experience difficult lighting are properly addressed. This is due to the lens' vari-focal IR function and auto iris - providing clear images in quickly-changing lighting environment. One example is "Strand High School's interior hallways," said Mr. Bekker. "These hallway doors open directly to the outside ... so when a door is suddenly opened, normally dark areas are immediately saturated with bright sunlight, requiring this Hikvision lens ... and IR functionality when returning back to the dark."

A Sense of Security
Since Strand High School's Principle and Vice-Principle use their PCs to conveniently monitor this IP solution, Hikvision's iVMS Software was combined with the DS-9632NI-ST Embedded NVR. As this NVR supports 32 IP camera channels, it is an excellent tool to allow these administrators access to whichever camera that is currently needed.

This comes in particularly handy during peak hours, such as the morning (with students arriving) and the afternoon (with them leaving for the day). And the results are already in: after only one week using this solution, instances of bullying decreased. Mr. Bekker noted this was confirmed by both students and Strand's principle. Furthermore, teachers can now review high-quality video to easily identify students who break school rules, such leaving school grounds during breaks.

Importantly, everyone entering and exiting school premises is closely monitored - bringing Strand High School both security and a sense of confidence during these changing modern times.

VIVOTEK panoramic PTZ cameras integrate with AxxonSoft VMS

VIVOTEK panoramic PTZ cameras integrate with AxxonSoft VMS

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 4/14/2014 | Article type: Security 50

VIVOTEK has announced successful integration of two of its latest security solution technologies with AxxonSoft's widely used Axxon Next video management software (VMS). The first integration move allows Axxon Next users to transparently access and control VIVOTEK's sophisticated Panoramic PTZ feature as implemented on two coordinated VIVOTEK cameras. In a further move, VIVOTEK has enabled integration of the Axxon Next interface with VIVOTEK's Smart Stream technology for optimizing video streaming from one of its award-winning cameras.

The integration with Axxon Next has enhanced the agility and scalability of VIVOTEK's Panoramic PTZ solutions. Panoramic PTZ draws on a combination of VIVOTEK megapixel fisheye camera SF8172/72V with speed dome camera SD8363E, allowing users to simultaneously monitor an area overview from a fisheye model while providing the capability for a detailed regional view from a speed dome. The fisheye camera provides 180° panoramic view or 360° surround view without blind spots. With sophisticated mechanism, the SD8363E provides fast, precise pan/tilt/zoom movement and captures details at top-notch quality. With the new advance in integration, Axxon Next users can take advantage of the VMS package's new Tag & Track feature—which allows the labeling and tracking of moving objects either selected manually or detected automatically—using VIVOTEK's box camera IP8162P for overviews and the speed dome camera SD8363E for detailed views of the tracked objects. As a result, existing Panoramic PTZ users have an additional popular VMS option that allows them to continue drawing on the powerful capabilities of VIVOTEK's technology without compromises to usability.

In addition, VIVOTEK has also completed integration of its Smart Stream technology on its IP8371E camera with the AxxonSoft VMS. VIVOTEK's Smart Stream reduces bandwidth consumption and storage requirements of video from the IP8371E camera, by using full resolution only for predefined areas in the field of view—either regions of interest, or automatically detected moving objects—while utilizing a lower baseline resolution for background areas of no interest for the surveillance application. Integration of Smart Stream with Axxon Next allows users of the VMS to gain the benefits of this advanced feature while providing simple management from the VMS's native interface.

Commenting on the company's latest moves, VIVOTEK Executive Vice President Steve Ma said: "We're delighted to build even greater integration of our Panoramic PTZ and Smart Stream technologies with AxxonSoft's terrific open-platform video management software. Existing customers of both VIVOTEK and AxxonSoft will benefit, and seamless interoperability between our cameras and Axxon Next make for an extremely appealing surveillance solution for potential new customers as well."

EverFocus HD-SDI system secures NEXCO West highway toll booths

Editor / Provider: sponsored by EverFocus | Updated: 4/8/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

EverFocus has recently built-up the HD-SDI system, including 20 DVRs (EPHD04+) and 50 outdoor IR dome cameras (EHH5101) on the NEXCO-West (West Nippon Expressway Company Ltd) highway toll booths located in Hiroshima, Yamaguchi.

According to NEXCO-West, the toll booths require a system that is reliable and can produce clear images no matter on the staff or the POS machine. Moreover, cameras with anti-raining/snowing and small-in-size features are considered as the key points. Therefore, they chose EverFocus' HD-SDI DVR and outdoor IR dome camera.

Compact size along with elegant design has always been the major feature in the Japanese market. The EPHD04+ is a four-channel HD-SDI DVR that comes with a fine outlook and a small chassis design, plus its 1080p full HD resolution for live video recording, playback and archive videos, all these features have satisfied the customer's requirements. The easy installation, which is just the same as what we do for the traditional CCTV system, has also save the time and money.

On the other hand, for highway customers, they often choose box or bullet type cameras; however, cameras being hit by trucks or buses happened frequently. Hence, NEXCO-West has made a decision to adopt dome type outdoor IR dome for this project. The EHH5101 is weather resistant (IP66) and is able to provide 1080p HD video over coax.

With EverFocus' HD-SDI system, the evidence can be safely and clearly collected, especially the POS machine and bill can be seen clearly through the monitor. According to the customers, accidents like vehicles passing by without paying the highway fee, or missed receiving toll bills have been decreasing. The full HD video images and the stable system bring the successful surveillance to the highway toll booths.

Hungarian Spa in Hajduszoboszlo upgrades surveillance solutions with VIVOTEK

Hungarian Spa in Hajduszoboszlo upgrades surveillance solutions with VIVOTEK

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 3/31/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Hajduszoboszlo, a small town in Hungary, has been well known for its thermal spring with a healing power since 1920s. HungaroSpa, located in Hajduszoboszlo, offers to international tourists a variety of facilities, such as medical spas, open-air baths, aqua parks, and an aqua-palace. In order to create a safer, more comfortable and reliable environment for tourist, in January, 2013, the management hired Satrax, a system integrator in Hungary working with VIVOTEK and VIVOTEK local distributor Alphasonic, to upgrade the surveillance system at HungaroSpa by installing 173 VIVOTEK network cameras.

For the center of the swimming pool (a 50 m X 50 m area), VIVOTEK's innovative and award-winning Panoramic PTZ solution was installed. Incorporating VIVOTEK's latest 5-Megapixel fisheye fixed dome network cameras and latest launched full HD speed dome network camera, the solution provides a 180° panoramic view or 360° surround view without blind spots, making it an especially ideal solution for monitoring open areas like the swimming pool and its surroundings. Panoramic PTZ offers wide coverage and can be used to monitor elderly tourists and emergency situations.

In addition to Panoramic PTZ, a variety of other cameras were implemented. Specifically, IP8332 was installed at entrances, outdoor swimming pools, and indoor spa pools because of its day & night function, weather-proof casing, and tamper detection features. IP8335H cameras, which feature an HD WDR CMOS sensor for use in challenging lighting conditions, were installed in outdoor swimming pools, which also open at night. IP7361 cameras were installed for outdoor swimming pools, entrances, and spa pools in the block. IP7361 is a high-end 2-megapixel network bullet camera with high resolution and a combination of outdoor specific features such as concealed wiring to prevent tampering. Additionally, the auto-iris capability can protect the lens from damage induced by direct sunlight.

FD8136 were installed for entrances and exits. As the world's smallest network fixed dome camera, FD8136 features a megapixel sensor enabling viewing resolution of 1280x800 at 30 fps. FD8134, an easy-to-use fixed dome network camera specifically designed for indoor security applications, were installed in the entrances to indoor dressing room (ceiling is about 2.6 m). IP8131 cameras were installed for the control center room, where 2 operators monitor the whole scene all time. IP8131 is a compact cube camera designed for indoor surveillance. Activities around the control center room, such as intrusion or vandalism, can be monitored. With supporting VIVOTEK's iViewer, the smart phone application, operators can monitor live video off-site.

The spa was equipped with several analog cameras. However, as the requirement for security increased, a more advanced and comprehensive network surveillance system is necessary. VIVOTEK's video server VS8100 was therefore adopted to connect to existed analog cameras, which the client wished to continue using. VS8100 was used to upgrade analog into digital surveillance system. Additionally, VAST, the central management software, was also implemented. It was designed to support 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.

Steve Ma, VIVOTEK's Executive VP commented, "We are proud to present an innovative panoramic PTZ to our clients. The entire surveillance network made possible by the advanced cameras and servers developed by our R&D team will guarantee 100% high-quality images for the spa management. We hope tourists from all around the world will be able to have safe and enjoyable vacations in the VIVOTEK-equipped environment."

Samsung Techwin IP video solution installed at Paveletskaya Plaza

Editor / Provider: Samsung Techwin | Updated: 3/4/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Samsung Techwin cameras are at the heart of a network video surveillance system installed at Paveletskaya Plaza, one of the most prestigious business centers in Moscow.

Despite tough worldwide trading conditions, Russia is enjoying strong growth in its economy and this is reflected in the increasing demand for office accommodation from international organizations, as well as locally based businesses in Moscow. Developers have responded to the shortfall in the availability of high quality commercial space with a dramatic acceleration in the number of building projects.

By the end of 2014, Russia's capital is expected to be able to boast 4 of the 5 tallest buildings in Europe, whilst many projects have already been completed, including theimpressive Paveletskaya Plaza complex.

Paveletskaya Plaza, which is constructed in the same architectural style as the adjacent Paveletskaya Railway Station, comprises two 12 storey and one 27 storeys tower. Collectively the buildings offer 65,000 squaremete of office accommodation fully fitted with the most modern technologies to provide tenants, which include Adecco, Allianz, Nestle and Tommy Hilfiger, with comfortable and stress-free working conditions. On site there are also several bank branches, a translations bureau, a printing centre and a travel agency, as well as shops, boutiques and restaurants for the benefit of office staff and visitors.

Electronic security and network specialists, YECONS Technology Solutions, were awarded the contract to install the video surveillance system, said: ”It is not perhaps a surprise that there were no shortage of installation companies keen to be invited to tender for this very important project,” said Yusuf Yesilova, General Director of Moscow based YECONS Technology Solutions. “However, although it was a very price competitive tendering process, the owners of Paveletskaya Plaza, ENKA, made it clear from the outset that there should be no compromise in respect of the coverage and quality of the video surveillance solution.”

Single Source
Having successfully installed Samsung Techwin professional video surveillance equipments at a number of other large projects, it gave YECONS Technology Solutions the confidence to single source all the required components of the video surveillance system from one of the fastest growing electronic security manufacturers in Russia.

Working closely with Samsung Techwin's locally based pre-sales support team, YECONS Technology Solutions' engineering design team took a close look at every location where a camera needed to be installed and subsequently recommended what their research had led them to believe was the best model for what it was expected to do.

228 cameras, together with Samsung Techwin network video recorders (NVRs) and monitors, have been installed to enable security personnel to monitor 24/7 all activity within the Paveletskaya Plaza buildings and the surrounding areas.

Fit for Purpose
“At certain locations, where positive identification of unwanted visitors needed to be achieved, we recommended the installation of 3MB Full HD camera models that could deliver evidence grade images, as well as technically advanced features such as Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) and face detection,” said Yusuf Yesilova. “In the majority of locations however, 1.3 megapixel cameras were more than able to capture high definition images of a quality which easily met the client's requirements. We were therefore able to deliver a competitively priced solution that took full advantage of Samsung Techwin's product portfolio that includes both extremely high specification cameras, as well as models which, although competitively priced, deliver a high level of performance.”

The Samsung Techwin cameras have been installed on all floors of the 3 buildings, as well as elevators, reception and parking areas. 124 of the 228 cameras are SND-5010s. Measuring just 100 x 115 x 42mm and part of the LiteNet camera series, the ONVIF compliant SND-5010 1.3 megapixel camera is designed to provide an affordable HD video surveillance solution for environments where there may be limited space. There are also 89 SNB-5000 cameras which are equipped with built-in license-free Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) capability which includes a scene change tampering function, as well as optical tripwire, enter/exit direction detection and an Appear/Disappear function to detect the movement of objects. Of the remaining cameras, 8 are SNB-6004s and 7 are SNB-7080s. With the ability to capture superb quality 2MP Full HD (1080P) images, the SNB-6004 is part of Samsung Techwin's highly acclaimed WiseNetIII camera range, whilst the SND-7080 is a 3 megapixel Full HD network dome camera with 3~8mm motorized varifocal lens.

24/7 Monitoring
Images from all of the cameras are transmitted over a LAN to a central control room where they are monitored live 24/7 by Paveletskaya Plaza operators who are able to direct patrolling security personnel to the precise location where an incident or suspicious activity may be taking place. At the same time the images are recorded onto 1 of 8 Samsung Techwin SRN-1000 NVRs which are able to work in harmony to provide a seamless server style video recording solution. Each SRN-1000 provides up to 24TB of on-board video storage capacity with the potential of an additional 24TB of storage via two external e-Sata direct storage devices. It also features support for Raid 5 storage.

“The video surveillance system plays a crucial role ensuring that our tenants can go about their daily work activities in a secure environment and that their staff, visitors and customers feel safe whilst taking advantage of Paveletskaya Plaza's superb facilities,” said Zihni Coskun, Facility Management Director of ENKA. “The partnership between YECONS Technology Solutions and Samsung Techwin has been a great success. It has resulted in a system that is working extremely well and the feedback from our operators is that it is highly reliable and easy to use.”
