Our product highlights
Video Surveillance Systems:
Punishing winds, relentless rain, temperatures that drop far below zero - no matter how severe the conditions get, a surveillance operation must go on without interruptions. The MIC IP 7000 HD family is developed by Bosch for these extreme applications. These PTZ cameras combine high-quality HD image capture with an IP68/NEMA 6P certified housing, meaning they can be used at temperatures from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius and humidity of up to 100 percent. They are also resistant to rain, snow, dust, wind and powerful vibrations. This means the MIC IP 7000 HD family is particularly suitable for outdoor use. Even in extreme low light conditions (down to 0.01 lux) the MIC IP starlight 7000 HD provides HD images and clear color images where other cameras would have already switched to monochrome. The MIC IP 7000 HD family provides IP video images of the highest quality, and is used among other things to provide security for inner cities, highways and critical infrastructures.

With DINION IP ultra 8000 MP, Bosch is setting new standards in the field of wide-angle yet detailed surveillance. This new camera simultaneously supports a wide-angle overview and multiple focus points on a single screen to focus on details without losing the bigger picture. Its 12 megapixel or 4K ultra HD resolution allows any given subject to be viewed in hitherto unknown detail even when zoomed-in. The DINION IP ultra 8000 MP offers the decisive clarity needed for collecting security relevant evidence for highly detailed and effective retrospective analysis. Now it is easy to keep an eye on the crowd, for example in a football stadium, and providing enough detail to identify individual persons.

The DIVAR IP 2000 storage unit from Bosch makes professional video surveillance easy for everyone. Many small and medium business owners would feel safer with a professional video surveillance system to secure their personnel and property. However in reality, the vast majority of solutions that are available are beyond most people's technical capabilities. Now Bosch has revolutionized the market with the DIVAR IP 2000 – a cutting edge video recording system offering the ability to create a video surveillance solution with professional security features that is both easy to install and easy to use. All it takes is installing the IP cameras, connecting them to the DIVAR IP 2000 storage unit and going to its web address to start the configuration.

Samsung Techwin video surveillance solution for Sisli Municipality

Editor / Provider: Samsung Techwin | Updated: 11/18/2014 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Samsung Techwin has been entrusted to provide an end-to-end IP network based video surveillance system to help create a secure and safe environment for all who work in, or visit, the Sisli Municipality's new administrative offices.

Images captured by 170 Samsung Techwin cameras installed within the offices and surrounding areas are monitored in a central control room where they can be viewed live on Samsung Techwin monitors, whilst being recorded onto network video recorders.

Sisli is one of the major 32 districts of Istanbul on the European side of the city. Covering an area of approximately 30 square kilometres, it is located at the exit of the Bosphorus Bridge that links Asia to Europe. It is one of the busiest areas of Istanbul with a thriving business community and is popular for its fashion stores.

Moving to a new international award winning building provided Sisli Municipality with the opportunity to introduce smart building technologies to provide an efficient and environmentally friendly workplace for the district's administrators. The Municipality's leaders wished to see a video surveillance system installed that could similarly be regarded as ‘smart'.

The contract to install the IP network video surveillance system was awarded to Istanbul based CCTV specialists, Melis Elektronik, who successfully completed the entire project within three weeks.

Melis Elektronik worked closely with Samsung Techwin's distribution partner in Turkey, NFS Teknoloji, to design a system that could assist security personnel to monitor any suspicious activity and quickly decide on an appropriate response.

“Having carried out a survey of the district and understood what the Sisli Municipality wanted to achieve, we had no hesitation in recommending to Melis Elektronik that we should supply a single source solution from Samsung Techwin that, from a technology point of view, could easily meet the clients' expectations,” said Mrs Handan Anar, Deputy General Manager for NFS Teknoloji. “Equally important, although Sisli Municipality wanted to take advantage of the very latest IP technology and did not want to compromise on image quality, there was not an unlimited budget for the project. Samsung Techwin's competitively priced cameras, monitors and recorders were therefore an obvious cost-effective choice.”

77 of the cameras installed are Samsung Techwin SND-6083P 2MP dome cameras with varifocal lens and 68 are SNV-6084R 2MP vandal resistant dome cameras.

“These cameras were chosen partly because of the superb quality images which they are capable of capturing, but also because they are future-proof in that they are equipped with Samsung Techwin's open platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset,” said Mrs Anar. “The processing power of this chipset offers Sisli Municipality the opportunity to take advantage of the fact that the cameras can run multiple Applications if it wishes at anytime in the future such as video analytics, facial recognition, people counting and ANPR which can be downloaded to the cameras in a similar way to adding Apps to a Smartphone.”

17 of the other cameras installed are Samsung Techwin SNO-7080R 3 megapixel weatherproof network bullet cameras with built-in motorised varifocal lens and IR LEDs. The SNO-7080R is capable of capturing evidence grade Full HD 1080P resolution images at 30 images per second, both during daylight hours and in pitch-black darkness, making it suitable for a wide range of applications requiring effective 24-hour surveillance.

The images from all the cameras are recorded on 4 SRN-4000 network video recorders enabling authorised personnel to quickly retrieve recorded video evidence of any suspicious activity. The SRN-4000 is able to simultaneously record and multi-stream the transmission of images at a high bandwidth speed of 400Mbps. It also offers the potential to record and store, via 12 internal hard drives, video captured by 64 x 2 Megapixel cameras for up to 108 days. The internal hot-swappable hard drives support RAID5 and RAID6 recording, which provides protection against unrecoverable read errors as well as whole HDD failure.

Vietnam rallies behind security

Vietnam rallies behind security

Editor / Provider: Lisa Hsu, a&s Asia | Updated: 11/4/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

The anti-China protests that escalated to a riot in May resulted in damages to factories in industrial parks. Many of them were looted or burned down, causing injuries and several deaths to people who were caught in the incidents. The aftermath of the event led to losses of millions of dollars in damages and ceasing of manufacturing operations, as well as temporarily causing economic consequences as factories were required to close down for safety issues. Such violence meant an increase in security demand. Now, Vietnam is reevaluating their security issues, looking to improve safety and deter future incidents.

ECONOMIC GROWTH STILL STRONG
Despite the riot, Vietnam is unlikely to suffer significant economic impact. According to IHS Research, the economic and commercial impact on Vietnam's investment image in the wake of the anti-China riot will be limited, since production is likely to resume quickly in the affected areas. Additionally, the drop in Chinese investment is expected to be temporary, as it is more likely to delay commitment to new projects than lead to the cancellation of existing projects in Vietnam. In fact, according to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, China has 893 projects on going in Vietnam, with a total registered capital of US$4.7 billion. Furthermore, Japan and Taiwan, the two biggest investors in Vietnam, have registered capitals of $28.7 and $27.1 billion respectively in the country, showing that investors still see Vietnam as an ideal location for investing.

So what does this mean for security? According to Tran Nguyen Dung, Director of HDTEK Technology, “Growth of the security industry is due to market demand. Recently, the real estate market has recovered a bit, the bank system problems are being solved step by step, the belief in the stock market is increasing, and the exchange rate is quite stable.”

SECURITY AWARENESS INCREASES
During the chaos, the lack of security made catching culprits who vandalized and robbed factories even more difficult, as many did not have any surveillance cameras or intrusion alarms installed. With insufficient equipment to capture clear footage of incidents, families who lost loved ones in the riot were not able to bring justice to the criminals. However, this experience has led more Vietnamese people and companies, many of which normally ignored security issues in their organizations before, to become more aware of their security system and services, creating a turning point for the Vietnamese security industry, according to Hoang Qui Hop, GM of T&T Security.

“I believe this incident is a wake-up call for Vietnam's manufacturing sector,” said Terence Ng, GM of IndoChina at Bosch Security Systems. “Many industrial parks and factories were set up over the past years since Vietnam started industrialization, but there were insufficient or no investment in protecting and securing these facilities which is posing a threat to the safety and security of personnel. Now, industrial park and factory owners can no longer take security for granted and need to work on a comprehensive protection plan for their personnel, assets, and facilities.”

Hop also observed that apart from upgrading security systems to protect themselves, “companies are starting to work more closely with local authorities for assistance to obtain information about their employees for background checks, and human resource departments in companies are taking more interest in their staff.”

GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES TO BRING BACK INVESTORS
Vietnam has offered tax breaks and other incentives for companies whose factories were damaged or destroyed during the riot to maintain trade relations, with a reduction of up to 30% in special consumption tax, and reduced import and export tariffs. The government has also committed to ensuring absolute safety for people, businesses, and foreign agencies in accordance with the law and its international commitments.

“The government will have to give assurances to all foreign investors all over the world that it is making its best effort and taking measures to restabilize the business environment for foreign invested companies in the country,” Ng stated. Similarly, Dung emphasized, “Vietnam is a reliable environment to invest. They [the government] are giving compensations to the damaged companies. This is a very good way of handling the situation.”

Additionally, more companies from various verticals have been approaching security solutions, fueling additional growth in the Vietnam security industry. There is an increase in market demand by industrial parks, correction facilities, and city and marine surveillance verticals, which are faced with the need to satisfy companies and citizens requiring protection against future incidents, and to ensure reliable security systems are in place, said Ng.

LOOKING FOR NEW PREVENTION TECHNOLOGIES
Although the incentives offered to companies affected by the riots by the Vietnamese government are not directly related to security, money saved from tax and rent deductions can go to investing in security solutions.

“Companies must seriously look into a physical protection system to protect their assets and facilities against further theft, sabotage, or other malevolent human attacks,” suggested Ng. This system should involve “the setting up of a factory security team, equipment, and procedure to deter, detect, or delay any intrusive action.” He further emphasized the need for a plant's security forces to be able to delay an attack or defend itself until it can notify an emergency response team. Similarly, Bryan Quý, Sales Director of Namson Engineering, emphasized that security solutions providers should supply users with solutions to better connect consumer security systems to the police or government agents to process support requests faster.

In regard to equipment, Ng suggests that there will be an increase in market demand for high resolution HD and megapixel cameras with wide dynamic range and low-light sensitivity functions, as demand for video clarity and recognition capabilities have become increasingly evident. Other products such as external and internal alarm sensors for perimeter and facility protection, and access control linked with video systems to prevent unauthorized access are options for companies to install to protect their property. Video content analysis with functions such as crowd detection, loitering, and fire and smoke detection can be used to immediately recognize risks and reduce the need for human operators. With the growing location of banking ATMs, security solutions are needed to secure different banking locations.

Nguyen Minh Cuong, Assistant Manager for System Solution Division of Panasonic Vietnam, notes that camera and alarm systems are basic requirements, with an estimated growth of over 10%  for the banking security market. High resolution cameras will be popular in order to monitor customers' behavior in the ATM booth, and remote monitoring will also be an option for banking security solutions. Alarm systems are on the road to becoming the most essential technology for ATMs, as the feature to alert authorities or operators in situations is the main purpose of security systems, especially after business hours.

SOLUTIONS, NOT JUST PRODUCTS
Regardless of whether the riot brought more business to security companies, security companies still need to step up their game. According to Ng, it is essential for security solution providers to be able to offer a comprehensive intelligent solution — one that can reliably capture, analyze, store, view, and manage large amounts of video and alarm information, from early detection of potential problems to final response action. It would also be ideal to have software solutions with site maps and integrated functions to different sensors and elements of the physical protection system. Combining both equipment and software solutions would form a multifunctional and expandable platform that fits into the company's personal requirements.

Since the riot, security solutions providers are under more scrutiny to maintain standard codes and regulations for security solutions, said T&T's Hop, “especially for banks, factories, airports, seaports, casinos, and oil and gas industries. Not only should they sell products but also solutions with the after-sales service.”

Post riot, more people will be willing to spend money on security issues. For example, more homes will install 24-hour-monitored security systems with burglar alarms, panic call, and fire alarm functions. Hop noted that the cost of security systems is not expensive at this time; therefore, it is affordable to install one or two HD IP cameras in a residential home. Furthermore, with the evolution of technology, most people own smartphones or tablets, allowing consumers to monitor their houses through security apps on-the-go via the Internet.

POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE
Despite the negative impact brought on by the riots, growing security awareness as a result of the events will hopefully provide Vietnam with the push it needs to jump-start its security market. Furthermore, as the economic situation in Vietnam — and across the globe — continues to improve, as well as adding on the support of the government to bring in more foreign direct investment, Vietnam has the tools it needs to build up and improve its security landscape.

Dahua launches 4K camera

Dahua launches 4K camera

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 10/28/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Dahua Technology officially introduces its first 4K network camera IPC-HF81200E, marching into UHD (Ultra HD) era.

Actually, 4K is not a new word, especially to the consumer electronics market. Defined and approval by International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a 4K camera should offer resolution at 3840 x 2160 with high color fidelity in a 16:9 format using progressive scanning at 25/30 Hz.

In other words, a 4K camera provides four times the resolution of 1080p, rendering superior image detail and surprisingly exquisite colors, which is ideal for large area monitoring, such as parking lot, railway station, safe city and etc.

Dahua 4K camera IPC-HF81200E fully complies with the above standard, it adopts 12.0-Megapixel sensor, incorporating with high-performance DSP to provide extraordinary image quality. Meanwhile, the camera offers 12MP (4000 x 3000) at 15 fps and 4K at 30fps preview with a suggested bandwidth at 8Mbps, ensuring a smooth live view without network resource waste; in addition, the camera provides triple streams options to satisfy various demand in application.

The IPC-HF81200E also supports multi-functions such as ultra-defog, ROI and intelligently detections, including face detections, tripwire, intrusion and scene change, which can smartly send alerts to end-users when any suspicious incident or behavior detected.

For example, there are two-fold benefits to set an intrusion area at a gas station entrance: on one hand, stuff can immediately get to the refueling spot and serve the driver as the second he received the triggered alert, which directly increases profit; on the other hand, any hidden dangers such as smoking or phone call can be observed and stopped to further ensure the safety.

“Dahua is among the first manufacturers to introduce a 4K camera, making the UHD surveillance to something real,” said Peter Pan, Product Manager at Dahua Technology. “Next year, we plan to render more selective possibilities to the market so that our customers can have more alternatives and find the right 4K camera to best meet their specific demands, and a high C/P ratio 4K camera will come out in this November.”
