Arecont Vision unveils SurroundVideo 12MP 360 degree panoramic cam with WDR

Editor / Provider: Arecont Vision | Updated: 10/2/2013 | Article type: Security 50

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology introduced a unique 12-megapixel (MP) 360° panoramic camera with true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). The new SurroundVideo 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera produces superior quality images of wide areas even in the most challenging lighting conditions without the aberrations produced by single sensor fish-eye panoramic cameras. Approximately half the size of Arecont Vision's previous SurroundVideo 360° panoramic dome camera, the new 12MP 360° panoramic camera's unobtrusive design makes it ideal for numerous applications both indoors and out.

Arecont Vision's WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering the frame rates. By combining long and short exposures in the same field-of-view, WDR maximizes the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision cameras represents an up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.

Four 3MP WDR image sensors inside the SurroundVideo 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera each provide 2,048 x 1,536-pixel resolution for a total resolution of 8,192 x 1,536-pixels. The SurroundVideo 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera's dome housing is IP66 environmentally rated and IK10 vandal resistant.

Hikvision safeguards Czech alarm manufacturer Jablotron

Hikvision safeguards Czech alarm manufacturer Jablotron

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 9/30/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is the new location of Jablotron Security company, which belongs to Jablotron Group - leading suppliers of alarms with thousands of authorized installers and hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers around the world.

Jablotron Security company focus is on alarm receiving centre services in the Czech Republic. Numbers of Hikvision products were chosen to protect both Jablotron's Security reputation and its new building.

Designed, supplied and commissioned by EUROALARM, authorized partner, importer, distributor and system integrator of Hikvision in the Czech Republic, this modern IP camera based system will undoubtedly serve to Jablotron needs for many years to come.

"Jablotron's Security overall goal was to design a high-quality CCTV system, but one that was easy to operate. We put a great deal of emphasis on the ability to obtain clear, quality, pictures in both day and night environments; as well the ability to view them live or by recording," explained Martin Svoboda, Operational Director at Jablotron Security.

The guts, so to speak, of this CCTV system was a quartet of Hikvision cameras: the DS-2DF1-514 5" Network High Speed Dome, DS-2CD8253F-EI IR Bullet Network Camera, DS-2CD764F-E 1.3 MP Network Dome Camera, and the DS-2DF1-402 4” Network High Speed Dome.

Internally, main entrances, as well as emergency exits were deemed areas that needed coverage. Additionally, hallways, various office space, and security management rooms were designated as requiring additional security.

Primarily tasked with this effort was Hikvision's DS-2CD764F-E 1.3 MP Network Dome Camera. "We found this unit to be particularly good in areas such as receiving, as well as other office space. We are really able to see, in great detail, what is important," noted Mr. Svoboda.

Features, such as up-to 1.3 megapixel (1280 x 960) resolution and HD720P real time video, allow the DS-2CD764F-E to successfully achieve this goal.

Located in the server room is the DS-2DF1-402 4” Network High Speed Dome. This camera was specifically chosen because of its 360° endless pan range. It was also put on a 24-hour scan feature to better visually patrol the area. This Hikvision model allows IP - both inside headquarters, as well as those outside (by remote viewing) - to keep constant vigil over this highly-important room.

While on the exterior, Hikvision's DS-2DF1-514 5" Network High Speed Dome mans the roof. Obviously, an IP66 rating is critical to this camera being able to do its job in hot European summers and brutally cold winters. Also, due to the area this camera resides - the roof - it is vital to zoom on any potential threats. A 23x zoom provides this, while a 360° endless pan range and -5°-185° tilt range gives the ability to quickly follow any item of interest. Interestingly, "We really liked this camera, and purchased an extra unit just in case of any emergency situation," added Mr. Svoboda.

Placed liberally along the external facade of these headquarters is the DS-2CD8253F-EI IR Bullet Network Camera. Again, sporting an IP66 rating, the DS-2CD8253F-EI also provides true day / night ability and an IR range of up-to 30m to give excellent coverage all lighting conditions. Mr. Svoboda remarked, "For this particular application, night vision was critical, and we are very comfortable with the DS-2CD8253F-EI's ability."

Finally, tying this CCTV system together is Hikvision's DS-8632NI-ST NVR. "The DS-8632NI-ST allows us to connect all of our internal and external Hikvision cameras into this 32-channel NVR. This conveniently and efficiently provides multiple access for different users, such as personnel at reception, security, or various managers that need require usage of our CCTV system," summed up Mr. Svoboda.

Hikvision introduces 2 vari-focal cameras into PICADIS analog family

Hikvision introduces 2 vari-focal cameras into PICADIS analog family

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 9/27/2013 | Article type: Security 50

While security camera manufacturers continue to seek simple technical functions to meet customers' needs, the user flexibility for their own cameras offers a larger jump into higher product value. Hikvision recently introduced two vari-focal models into its PICADIS analog camera family -- the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL IR Bullet camera and DS-2CE55C2P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL IR Dome camera, which are equipped with a 2.8mm~12mm adjustable lens allowing these models to operate at given focal distances to suit a particular field of view.

New look for Vari-Focal
Of particular note is the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 IR bullet camera's incorporation of product design for focusing and zooming. Compared to traditional vari-focal models (which require users to use a screwdriver for focus and zoom adjustment), the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 is equipped with a detachable “Focus & Zoom Tool” to simplify these cumbersome steps. Users need only remove the cover from the camera and simply plug one end in until the desired zoom and clarity is achieved. The compact size and inconspicuous appearance of the “Focus & Zoom Tool” provides an additional discreet surveillance.

Excellent Image Delivery
The most noteworthy feature of Hikvision 720TVL cameras series is the 1.3MP (1280x960) image sensor incorporated into the cameras. This offers a detailed image quality of real 720TVL resolution. Both the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 and DS-2CE55C2P(N)-VFIR3 camera models also share the majority of features with Hikvision's previously released 720TVL PICADIS models. These features, such as ultra high resolution, High Dynamic Range, Adaptive Local Tone Mapping, and low-light performance, are optimized for imaging performance in varying lighting conditions.

Additionally, these two models are available in both color and true day/night variants. Equipped with enhanced IR LEDs, the two cameras allow up-to 40m of vantage in complete darkness. Smart IR is supported to further address overexposure issues when the object draws closer to the camera.

960H Solution
While Hikvision's 720TVL PICADIS cameras provide a clearer video option, the benefits of 960H technology is most fully realized in conjunction with Hikvision's excellent line of DVR products. Pairing Hikvision's WD1 embedded DVRs with the 720TVL analog camera series creates a truly vivid 960H world!

Samsung Techwin launches WiseNetIII 2MP HD vandal dome SNV-6084

Samsung Techwin launches WiseNetIII 2MP HD vandal dome SNV-6084

Editor / Provider: Samsung Techwin | Updated: 9/24/2013 | Article type: Security 50

Samsung Techwin's new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network vandal-resistant dome camera, the SNV-6084, is designed to work effectively in severe weather conditions as well as being resistant to physical attack.

The SNV-6084, which is IK10 vandal resistant and weatherproof to IP66, can withstand high temperature variations of -50°C to +55°C, making it an ideal video surveillance solution in even the most challenging environmental conditions. The low price point of the SNV-6084 makes it ideal for video surveillance projects such as airports, ports, car parks, trading estates and open public spaces where there is a need to capture evidence grade images from a large number of cameras.

Both the SNV-6084's camera and its in-built heater can be powered by standard PoE (Power over Ethernet), negating the need for the installation of separate cables for power and image transmission, or additional costly midspans.

Equipped with a 3-8.5mm motorized varifocal lens, the ONVIF conformant SNV-6084 is a true Day/Night camera with an infra-cut filter. It is designed to capture high quality colour images at an ultra fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p and features enhanced Wide Dynamic Range which with performance greater than 120dB can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas.

In November 2013, Samsung Techwin will further broaden its WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network range with the introduction of the SNV-5084 vandal and extreme weather resistant dome camera.

Equipped with a 1.3 megapixel camera, the SNV-5084 will share all the key features of the SNV-6084 which include bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, and a multi-crop feature enabling users to highlight and crop up to nine areas of interest in order for the camera to only send the images within that area at a preferred resolution and frame rate, enabling a much smarter and efficient use of the available network bandwidth.

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 authorized users to remotely access and downloads video that has been recorded onto a memory card.

The SNV-5084 and SNV-6084 will both offer Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in 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 unauthorized 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 is the normal motion of the scene and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees.

The SNV-6084 and SNV-5084 join 13 other camera models that incorporate the WiseNetIII DSP chipset. These have been developed by Samsung Techwin as a result of a market research program which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves' in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded.

VIVOTEK secures wine storage facilities in Australia

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 9/18/2013 | Article type: Security 50

Storage for Valuable Wines, Precious Treasury
Artisan Wine Storage, an industry-leading facility for the proper care of fine wine, provides multifaceted wine storage, cellarage options and services to private wine collectors and wine traders from the wholesale, auction, import/export, and retail sectors, or those in the business of liquidating liquid assets. Known for having the finest wine storage facilities in Australia, Artisan stores a wide range of valuable fine wines. It has adopted a stringent temperature and humidity setting policy and security infrastructure to ensure seamless protection. In order to make security even more impeccable, Artisan required a reliable and high-resolution surveillance system to monitor facilities and record any incidents that occur. Artisan turned to Altech Computers, VIVOTEK's official distributor in Australia, for professional consulting services. Altech Computers, as an experienced solution provider, designed a suitable system based on VIVOTEK's megapixel cameras, helping Artisan deter or detect warehouse theft, prevent damage to expensive wines, and in general provide a very secure place for wine collectors and traders to store their wines.

Seamless Security, Inside and Outside
For this project, 38 cameras were installed, including the FD8372, FE8172V, FD8135H and FD8136. Because high-quality video from inside and outside the warehouse needs to be available 24 hours a day, with the front and back entrances, and loading dock especially critical to securing all that highly valued property, the FD8372 and FE8172V, both equipped with a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor, built-in IR Illuminators, and WDR enhancement technology, were chosen. The FD8372, a professional fixed dome network camera, is designed with the ePTZ function and Smart Focus System. The ePTZ enables users to zoom in and focus on a region of interest with only a few clicks of a mouse while the Smart Focus System makes focus adjustment easier. By using a lens with built-in stepping motors, the FD8372 allows remote adjustment and control of the focal length, for hassle-free installation and maintenance. The FE8172V, a fixed dome network camera with a fisheye lens, provides a 180° panoramic view or 360° surround view without blind spots. More importantly, the FE8172V possesses cutting-edge image processing capability. Images captured from the fisheye camera can be converted into conventional rectilinear images for viewing and analysis, making monitoring more comprehensive and complete.

As for the entrance areas, where high-contrast lighting conditions and glare occur frequently, a camera with an HD WDR CMOS sensor is needed. The FD8135H, with its WDR Pro function, is able to ensure the image is identifiable by capturing both the darkest and brightest parts of a scene and combining the differences to generate a highly realistic image. In addition, by taking advantage of its PIR sensor, the FD8135H can detect moving objects. Whenever an unauthorized object is detected, an alarm will be triggered. In the office area, the 1-megapixel ultra-mini dome camera FD8136 was installed. Because of its easy installation and selectable focal-length design, the FD8136 has proved an ideal choice for a diverse range of indoor applications.
