Tyco safeguards Romanian Carrefour

Tyco safeguards Romanian Carrefour

Editor / Provider: Tyco | Updated: 1/3/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

When Carrefour expanded its presence of hypermarkets across 3 continents, they hired security system integrator UTI to establish loss prevention systems within their unique shopping environment. The security company met the challenge, equipped with state-of-the-art video surveillance equipment from American Dynamics and successfully improved Carrefour's security.

A hypermarket like Carrefours is essentially a super-sized supermarket that typically stocks some 70,000 items and has a sales floor as big as 20,000 square meters or approximately 215,000 square feet. But as of 1999, no one in Romania had yet seen a hypermarket — at least not on their home turf. Carrefour executives noticed the void, and devised a plan: open 2 hypermarkets a year in every Romanian city.

A crucial part of any retail endeavor is loss prevention. Shoplifting and employee theft or internal shrinkage can take a balance sheet from black to re. According to Jack Hayes, who conducts an annual retail theft survey, these are serious crimes that not only take a toll on retailers' bottom-line profits but also “hurt our economy, costing consumers higher prices at the cash register, and causing a loss of jobs when retailers are forced to close stores or even go out of business.” Unfortunately, this problem appears to be especially severe in Romania.

Seizing the Opportunity — and Securing It
“Because Romania is so far from our home base in France, I wanted to make sure that if there was a problem, someone would be there to fix it,” he said. Luckily, about this time, UTI Retail Solutions' Managing Director Simona Dinca heard about Carrefour's plans to enter Romania. She called to see if they could help.

Tyco Fire & Security's distributor for the region, UTI's had the technology to address security issues unique to the mega-sized hypermarket. Besson tested the products in their showroom and was impressed with the quality and performance. Very soon Dinca assembled a team and together they set about designing a security system tailored to hypermarket specifications.

Rolling It Out
The first store, Carrefour Militari, located in Bucharest, was slated to break ground in 2000 and would feature a sales floor of 10,500 square meters stocked with 50,000 products. That's a lot to keep an eye on, especially considering the unprecedented temptation such a vast selection of goods posed to the potential shoplifter who was unaccustomed to a market economy.

The UTI team addressed the challenge with 2 SensorRail video systems, 18 SpeedDomeR Ultra IV programmable dome cameras, 4 SpeedDome Optima programmable dome cameras, multiplexers, analog video recorders, and a VM96 matrix switcher system . All are from American Dynamics, part of Tyco Fire & Security's Access Control and Video Systems business unit.

After the installation, Besson had full video coverage of everything— from the commercial areas to the warehouses—just as he had requested. Moreover, The SensorRail, in particular, gives security staff a vantage point over all of the hypermarket's enormous display aisles. It's ideal for warehouses or high-ceilingedbuildings like a hypermarket, serving as a motorized perch for domes that noiselessly move along its tracks the same way a train does, only inverted, to close in on wherever the action is. “The SensorRail enhances the roving perspective that the SpeedDome Optimas offer,” said Viorel Luta, UTI's technical manager for the project. “Combined, they expand your ability to cover broad expanses of retail space far beyond what you can manage with a dome camera by itself.”

In addition, American Dynamics' IntellexR Digital Video Management System and Network Client had also been installed. Intellex enables Besson and his security personnel to establish a perimeter around certain areas, such as the place where employees make cash drops, so that anyone who crosses into these areas triggers an alarm. They can set alarms to go off based on the speed, direction, or size of an object in motion as well. For instance, someone entering the hypermarket through an exit door could trigger an alarm that would appear on the monitor screen.

On the other hand, Network Client grants Besson and his staff remote access to the system. As further protection against shoplifting, UTI outfitted the cash registers and entrances at all Carrefour stores with Acousto Magnetic Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS). EAS systems help curb shoplifting by tying together electronic article surveillance, video, and point-of-sale systems, and delivering real-time intelligence to the store or corporate office.

A Wholesale Success
The security installation at Carrefour Militari alone paid for itself in the recovery of stolen merchandise within 18 months, helping them catch an average of 10 wannabe shoplifters daily. And now, Carrefour has 4 hypermarkets in Romania.

“We're enormously pleased with how well our high tech surveillance equipment is performing,” said Besson. As he and his staff have found, it does more than stop shoplifters. Stores remain open as late as 10 p.m. and the surveillance cameras outside have helped deter car theft and acts of violence that are more prone to happen at night.

Hikvision solutions assist in Iraqi security industry rebound

Hikvision solutions assist in Iraqi security industry rebound

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 12/19/2013 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Obviously, Iraq has gone through a great deal of upheaval in its recent history. Where much of its infrastructure was damaged by the first Gulf War in the early 90s, 2003's second Gulf War had a far more crippling effect.

Ahmed Shakir, CEO at the Iraqi-based security integrator Khairat Annabaa, explained: "After 2003, the private security industry was dealt a variety of problems; however the lack of IT professionals really affected our ability to provide modern solutions and modern security for our businesses."

However, with a decade's worth of hard work and dedication, both Iraq, and its businesses, are starting to bounce back. Mr. Shakir noted that the private security sector is beginning to thrive and Hikvision products are a growing presence in this revival.

Professional Security
For over 20 years, many private Iraqi businesses relied on an armed guard for security purposes. While this does provide a basic level of security, it also has a great many drawbacks and shortcomings. A guard is far from a comprehensive solution.

However, with the revival of professional solutions, its benefits have extended beyond solely better protection for a particular business. Khairat Annabaa's fuel storage distribution center project in Iraq's Amarah City illustrates this point.

Utilizing Hikvision's DS-2DF1-716 IR Network Speed Dome Camera, DS-2CD8254-EIS Network Bullet Camera, DS-2CD2012-I Network Bullet Camera, DS- 1100KI Keyboard, and DS-9616NI-SH NVR, this Amarah City solution not only provided an upgrade over guards, but also helped build security Infrastructure, improved overall security and most importantly, it promoted tourism

Building Security Infrastructure
Khairat Annabaa was initially an IT company. Now, through the improvement in both Iraqi infrastructure and economy, the time was ripe for Khairat Annabaa to use its IT knowhow and move into the security industry. Mr. Shakir noted, "The emergence of better Internet capacity, namely WiFi, has provided a great opportunity in the security industry for us."

Specifically, WiFi has greatly lowered the cost for solutions. In this fuel distribution center project, Hikvision's DS-2DF1-716 IR Network Speed Dome Cameras are placed on exterior towers to view the adjacent road; and utilizing its 30x optical zoom and 80m IR range functions, the license plates on cars entering the facility.

Additionally, the DS-2CD8254-EIS and DS-2CD2012-I Network Bullet Cameras are placed at specific fixed locations - such as critical areas such the primary fuel storage area - and along the borders to provide broader perimeter security. Both models can be as close as 100 meters or as far away as 4 kilometers from Hikvision's DS-9616NI-SH NVR.

For both camera models, WiFi makes this solution economically viable and provides the ability for managers and security personnel to access these cameras in their own offices; thereby providing an easier, cheaper, and more efficient solution. Additionally, Hikvision's DS- 1100KI Keyboard benefits by allowing 255 cameras to be used by 1 keyboard, and the ability to automatically utilize the cameras' zoom function on this keyboard.

Improving Overall Security & Terrorism Concerns
This fuel depot represents an important link in the overall Iraqi fuel supply chain. As a vital component to the economy, this site requires a suitable solution to the importance it holds.

Located on the main road between Amarah and Basurah, and near a logistically-important bridge for this road, this location is of obvious importance. However, the special nature of this specific site brings additional concern. Not only are important roads, bridges, and this fuel depot at this location, but also a thriving community with homes and an elementary school.

By utilizing WiFi to inexpensively link Hikvision cameras to Hikvision's DS-9616NI-SH NVR, managerial and security offices across great distances, this solution also provides improved overall security for the community at large.

Concurrently, this solution has "greatly reduced issues of terrorism. Now, with these Hikvision cameras monitoring not only the station, but the surrounding area, the community is much safer. This applies to common crime, but also to possible terrorism issues. Earlier, without cameras and WiFi, there wasn't a deterrent. Now, with these cameras and 8 hard disks of NVR hard-drive storage to record incidents, we can provide proactive safety measures," explained Mr. Shakir.

With Hikvision and Khairat Annabaa's IT abilities, Amarah City's fuel storage distribution center gained more than a simple solution. It gained a solution that provides protection - and civic stability.

MOBOTIX shows 5MP light sensitive cameras D25, M25 and Q25

MOBOTIX shows 5MP light sensitive cameras D25, M25 and Q25

Editor / Provider: Mobotix | Updated: 12/16/2013 | Article type: Security 50

The new D25, M25 and Q25 5-megapixel IP camera models deliver high-contrast images without motion blur, even in poorly illuminated scenes due to the new MOBOTIX low-light optimization feature. As a result, they are considerably more-light sensitive than the respective predecessor models and have twice as many pixels as Full HD.

All models feature state-of-the-art motion detection. Whether large objects in the foreground or small ones in the background, the integrated MxActivitySensor only records video or triggers an alarm if an important event occurs. Interference caused by trees moving in the wind, shadows, passing clouds or snowfall is ignored better. The motion sensor configures automatically; it is possible to select the image region and direction of motion of the objects.

The 3 models are weatherproof and operate at temperatures between -30°C to +50°C (-22°F to 122°F). The only differences in the models are the design and the additional sensors they offer. The D25 is a compact dome camera for indoor and outdoor use and can be equipped with vandalism protection. The M25 features a microphone and is designed to withstand extreme weather situations.

The Q25 generates 180-degree panorama images with improved details and discreetly secures an entire room without any blind spots. This way it is far easier to capture a scene than with several individual cameras. The number of cameras required and the costs are reduced as zooming in on details is still possible.

All new camera models feature an MxBus connection to integrate additional features such as the GPS-Box, which delivers the exact time reference for the video recordings, in addition to position, ambient temperature and brightness. Recording on all camera models takes place both internally on an SD card and externally on a USB stick or via the IP network on NAS hard drives offering nearly unlimited storage capacity.

Axis improves Shaanxi Rural Credit Cooperative HDTV video network system

Axis improves Shaanxi Rural Credit Cooperative HDTV video network system

Editor / Provider: Axis communications | Updated: 12/9/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

As network technologies advances and IT deployments go further, the video surveillance industry has stepped into the network era. Video surveillance is developing towards networking, modularization, and high definition, to meet user demands for high definition, robustness, reliability, ease-of-use, resilience, scalability, and ease of installation and maintenance. Shaanxi Rural Credit Cooperatives Union grows rapidly, and maintains more than 3,000 points of presence and hundreds of off-premise ATM self-service sites. HDTV network cameras were needed for the key areas at the banking sites, including main gates, bank note handover areas for cash carriers, outer/inner areas, counters, and ATM self-service areas, to address the business-critical requirements for “clear faces”, “clear bank notes”, “clear details”, “clear interior/exterior environments”.

On the basis of the specific HDTV surveillance requirements of the Union's points of presence, Axis network cameras were selected with functionalities and performance purpose-designed for banking, and in accordance with the actual conditions on the sites, as well as the business requirements, the Union formulated the plan as follows:
1. Main gates of the banking offices: Bank employees enter/exit the offices through the main gates, and all clients access the offices through the main gates for financial transactions. So, additional HDTV network cameras at the main gates enable facial recognition. Devices deployed: AXIS Q1604 Network Cameras with WDR functionality.
2. Back doors of the banking offices (bank note handover areas): Bank note handover is carried out in areas between the banking offices and cash carriers, for cash entry into the offices in the morning and cash return to the vaults at night. Naturally, the risk of robbery is great. AXIS P1354 Network Cameras with Lightfinder technology were deployed.
3. Banking office environments: The banking office environments are the areas where clients queue to handle financial transactions. In this place, risks are greater since cash flows between the bank tellers and clients, and the clients are allowed to move as they like. AXIS M3007-PV Network Dome Camera with 360o panoramic view were deployed.
4. ATM self-service settings: All ATMs in self-service settings were originally equipped with analog pinhole cameras, which didn't provide good facial recognition or identification for access control. AXIS Q1604 Network Cameras with WDR functionality were installed.

1. Application of Wide Dynamic Range technology: The Union needs details about persons and vehicles in its operating environments, so the cameras are expected to provide high definition, accurate color revivification, superior WDR effects, sufficient data that allows for identification of the colors and license numbers of the passing vehicles, and excellent image quality, free from high light impact in the environment. AXIS Q1604 Network Cameras were deployed which feature WDR, providing “dynamic capture” capabilities, enabling an ideal solution for monitoring applications in the highly variable lighting conditions, in circumstances where the light comes through a tunnel creating both shadow and bright zones. In these demanding environments, AXIS Q1604 allows for the user to clearly identify people and objects. The cameras' Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic capture uses several images with different exposure times. Advanced image processing results in the video with clarity and sharpness, therefore, no part of the image turns out too dark or too bright.

2. Application of the Lightfinder technology: At the back doors of the Union's banking offices (bank note handover areas), the cameras are expected to provide high clarity, accurate color revivification, and particularly, low light performance for poor lighting conditions at nighttime. AXIS P1354 Network Cameras with Lightfinder technology were deployed. AXIS P1354 is a fixed day and night camera with superb image quality, delivering excellent H.264 performance in a robust design. Superior video quality is provided with progressive scan in multiple individual H.264 streams, as well as Motion JPEG streams. The focus assistant, remote back focus and pixel counter features simplifies installation. The outstanding light sensitivity supplied by Axis' Lightfinder technology, with maintained colors even in very poor lighting conditions, is obtained by a combination of Axis' expertise in image processing, system-on-chip development and selection of the best optical components.

3. Application of 360o panoramic view cameras: In the outer environments in the Union's banking offices, it is necessary to monitor facial features, and activities of the clients during business hours as well as unauthorized entry. Therefore, the cameras are expected to provide high definition, accurate color revivification, no blind zone and wide coverage. AXIS M3007-PV Network Cameras with 360o panoramic view cameras were deployed. They offer multiple viewing modes: 360o overview and dewarped imaging technologies, including panorama, dual panorama, quad views and support for digital pan/tilt/zoom functionality. Multiple video streams in H.264 and dynamic JPEG formats can be transmitted simultaneously.

4. Ultra-low bandwidth and storage requirements: The Union's existing distributed management model will be transformed into centralized surveillance and management with city-level secondary banking surveillance centers, which are then connected to the provincial and national security networks, thus extending the monitoring coverage and tools, freeing the operators at the local sites from device maintenance, and improving the overall efficiencies and effects. Axis cameras with high performance video compression algorithms, deployed in the Union, provide the ability to transmit the HD images with the limited bandwidth. This reduces bandwidth requirements while ensuring the high quality of images.

Samsung Techwin new 960H camera series is packed with a list of innovative features to enable high resolution 700 TV lines colour images to be captured in low light conditions. One of the most interesting features from an installer's perspective is likely to be Simple Focus as it can help reduce installation costs by minimising the time it takes to commission the cameras.

The 2 domes and box camera in the new 960H series are equipped with Samsung Techwin's advanced Wide Dynamic Range feature which compensates for backlight 128 times more effectively than standard WDR. This together with Samsung Super Dynamic Range (SSDR), which automatically adjusts dark areas of an image and Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNRIII), ensures high quality images can be obtained in a wide range of challenging environments including when the light may be as low as 0.1 lux. The new models also utilise Progressive Scan to optimise the high quality video capture of moving objects, making it possible, for example, to read car number plates without a motion blur effect.

A single push of a button located at the back of the camera is all that is needed to automatically focus the camera via the Simple Focus feature which can also be remotely accessed via a coaxial control enabled DVR. An additional operational benefit is that Simple Focus automatically optimizes the back-focus required for clear, sharp images when the camera's true Day & Night function changes from colour to monochrome mode.

Although extremely competitively priced, the models in the 960H series include Intelligent Video Analytics which can assist people counting or the detection of activity by various means, such as 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.

The 3 new models are all compatible with Samsung Techwin's series of 960H DVRs which were introduced in March 2013 set a new standard in digital video recording enabling users to achieve an immediate improvement in the resolution of the live or recorded images that can be displayed on a high definition monitor.

The three models in the 960H series are: 
SCB-3003 box camera
SCD-3083 dome camera with 3.6x motorised varifocal lens
SCV-3083 IP66 vandal-resistant dome camera with 3.6x motorised varifocal lens
