Korean luxurious casino deploys Webgate HD-CCTV solution

Korean luxurious casino deploys Webgate HD-CCTV solution

Editor / Provider: Webgate | Updated: 6/23/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

WEBGATE, the Korea-based surveillance equipment provider, as well as a division of of Daemyung Enterprise, has completed the HD-CCTV surveillance system installation for a world-class casino in Pusan, together with their partner company SARADA.

The casino, located in Haeundae, is one of the top tourist destinations in Korea. It offers not just a wide selection of slot machines and tables where guests enjoy baccarat, blackjack and roulette. The whole casino is divided into various sections according to features and styles, providing premium service and amenities from a world-class casino, to meet expectations from travelers around the world.

While the casino sees huge money being handled during games every day, the video surveillance system becomes one of the core facilities in preventing illegal game or theft. This casino had been operating its video surveillance system with analog camera and DVR for a long time. However, there has been a continuous request of upgrading to full-HD video surveillance system. Representativesof the casino security  department had chosen WEBGATE's HD-CCTV system,  after making thorough comparison between "IP camera system based on network" and "HD-CCTV system based on HD-SDI transmission technology".

HD-CCTV system can make use of  the existing coaxial cables of  the analog system,  and can transmit full-HD digital video without frame loss. Unlike IP systems, it doesn't cause delay during video compression or network transmission, and provides real-time video monitoring for security personnel. Thanks to the advanced video CODEC solution, DVR can record high quality video which is undistinguishable from the live video, so its recording can serve as evidence when accidents occur. Besides, the camera's anti-motion blur function, and high reliability  both played an essential part in making WEBGATE a solution provider.

One Cable Solution:
HD-CCTV's “One Cable Solution” was applied to casino's video surveillance system. One Cable Solution configuration means that by using the coaxial cable, DVR supplies power to camera and controls cameras' OSD menu and zoom/focus. Also, in this configuration, all channels have 30fps to provide full-frame recording. Casino security personnel are very satisfied with the new HD-CCTV system because they can have the most optimized system by operating the system in the same way with conventional ones. They said that they will continue to upgrade their rest analog system as well.

Herefordshire solar farm installed Optex sensors to reduce false alarms

Herefordshire solar farm installed Optex sensors to reduce false alarms

Editor / Provider: Optex | Updated: 6/20/2014 | Article type: Security 50

The Herefordshire solar farm, located near Hoarwithy, is a multi million pound solar farm that provides power to the national grid. The remote site is predominantly unmanned and has a two kilometre perimeter.

To prevent the theft or damage of solar panels, the Herefordshire farm required a security system which could detect any intrusion on site and transmit alarms and live images to a remote video monitoring centre, which then verifies the situation and takes action accordingly. The new perimeter protection system had to be able to accommodate wildlife and environmental changes, as sheep are roaming around the site and could trigger false alarms. So could vegetation sway and change in weather. It was critical for the site owner to have the lowest false rate while keeping the catch performance rate to a maximum.

AVA Security & Communications recommended and installed the new security systems, comprising more than 25 of the active infrared REDNET perimeter detectors from OPTEX Europe, which are located every 50 metres. It utilises a 16 beam ‘net' configuration to provide high level detection capability and can be configured to drastically decrease the level of nuisance alarms. In this case two months after the installation was completed the monitoring centre received 300 times fewer false alarms than it would expect for a site of such site and complexity. The outstanding performance of the intrusion detection system helps improve the efficiency of the monitoring centre which can focus on investigating genuine alarms.

Counting on intelligence: Retail wises up

Counting on intelligence: Retail wises up

Editor / Provider: Eifeh Strom, a&s International | Updated: 6/16/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

In 2012 the aggregate retail revenue of the world's top 250 retailers amounted to approximately US$4.3 trillion, a composite year-over-year revenue growth rate of 4.9 percent, according to the Global Powers of Retailing 2014 report by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Although economic conditions that year were a bit rough, leading retailers across the globe continued to grow. However, with growth comes the desire to not just sustain it, but capitalize on it. The benefits of intelligent solutions in the retail sphere are helping global retailers do just that.

As more and more retailers are starting to realize the benefits not only for security, but for marketing, efficiency, and management as well, the number of retailers adopting intelligent solutions such as “smart” cameras is growing. In fact, the global intelligent video surveillance market in the retail industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 27.1 percent over the period of 2012 to 2016, according to an October 2013 report by Infiniti Research. This increase in retail adoption of analytics is also obvious in the number of security providers coming out with retail-targeted analytics solutions.

Sales and return on investment (ROI) have become increasingly important for brick-and-mortar retailers who are now competing with the convenience of online shopping thanks to the Internet. In an age where the click of a button can deliver anything ranging from clothing to furniture to groceries on one's doorstep, brick-and-mortar retailers are even more conscious of the importance of good marketing, loss prevention, and operational efficiency to name a few. According to the Global Retail Theft Barometer published in October 2013, shrinkage due to shoplifting, employee fraud/ theft, etc., cost the global retail market $112 billion in 2012. That is where intelligent solutions come in. Where old security systems failed to prevent shrinkage and optimize marketing strategies, intelligent solutions are picking up the slack and proving their worth.

Benefiting From Intelligence
The retail market is not known to have a lot of extra money laying around to throw at fancy technology; however, as the price for intelligent solutions come down, some retailers are realizing the investment is worth the price tag. While retailers in the more high-end luxury market are more likely to be able to afford such intelligent solutions, those in the middle market looking to boost sales are also starting to look towards intelligence. Furthermore, not every intelligent system is created equal. Different stores need different functions, and since the price often depends on the features needed, it is possibly for mid-end retailers to find intelligent solutions that fit their budgetary scope. Retailers in the middle range not needing as many or as advanced functions may opt for a more cost-effective solution comprised of a NVR and camera with only basic intelligent features. This solution gives the retailers some of the benefits of intelligence without breaking the bank.

Regardless of the degree of intelligence a retailer chooses to deploy, the ability to improve space optimization, stock monitoring, shop floor tracking, shopper behavior, bottlenecks, queue lengths, staffing levels, etc., are just some of the benefits retailers can expect from an intelligent video solution. With a wide range of features, video content analysis (VCA) software, also known as video analytics, has much to offer retailers in terms of business intelligence (BI). Whether on the edge or integrated into a video management system (VMS), the BI data gathered from VCA features such as face recognition, heat mapping, people counting, and dwell time provide businesses with immediate ROI. But how does it do this? The Beginner's Guide to Video Business Intelligence by 3xLOGIC puts it this way, “Technologies that aggregate the vast amount of disparate data — video data, transactional data, structured and unstructured data — that is generated today, and distils that data into relevant business intelligence that can be easily understood and acted upon; that's video business intelligence.” The idea of actionable intelligence, turning video data into more than just images on a screen, giving that data value, that is how analytics transforms a retailer's security camera system into more than just video surveillance.



C
ase Study: Analytics Optimizes Croatian Retailer's Marketing
While the benefits of analytics is easy to talk about, actually seeing it might be harder; however, Croatian retailer Pevec not only saw the benefits, they utilized and made the most of it. As a retail chain store, Pevec has always taken security seriously, installing video surveillance cameras in each of their 13 stores since their opening. Having heard of the benefits analytics could add to their marketing, Pevec installed a number of RIVA cameras with onboard analytics. The intelligent cameras would not only extend the retailer's existing security system, the onboard people-counting filter would count customers, which would help the marketing department optimize marketing activities and plan sales space. The built-in people-counting filter provided the retailer with important and invaluable data. By counting the number of customers, the marketing department was able to determine the number of visitors during a promotion period and whether the number of customers increased, which if it did was considered short-term success. This success could then be measured in long-term success by seeing if after the promotion ended, whether those acquired customers continued to return to the store.

People-counting data also helped the retailer determine how many of the customers entering were actually making purchases, which was done by comparing the data with the cash desk data. With the data, the marketing department was able to deduce the effectiveness of their marketing strategy. If the majority of customers do not turn into buyers, this indicates that the product range, product presentation, and/or product placement needs to be changed. If the number of customers drops but the majority are buyers, this indicates that the company should pursue more marketing activities. Also, comparing the peoplecounting data of the different stores within the chain gave the retailer better insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each of its branches.

In addition to marketing optimization, people-counting data also helped the retailer increase operational efficiency. By analyzing data for customer traffic during specific times — daytime, weekends, holidays, seasonal periods, etc. — Pevec was able to better utilize their manpower by adjusting the number of employees on staff according to customer traffic. The use of real-time data also helped the stores manage queue lengths and diffuse bottlenecks during peak hours.

Graduating to Smarter Operations
Although price remains a deciding factor for many retailers regarding the feasibility of deploying an intelligent solution, the price of such solutions is going down, meaning soon enough price will no longer be a viable excuse. Combine declining prices with the obvious ROI provided by analytics in terms of business intelligence and it seems that intelligence should be able to find a comfortable home in the retail area sometime in the future.

FLIR layered security approach

FLIR layered security approach

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by FLIR | Updated: 6/16/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

FLIR believes that a layered approach to wide area surveillance and perimeter intrusion detection is necessary to provide advanced warning of potential threats – before they cross a perimeter. Security solutions should not only monitor and protect a physical barrier but also extend beyond the fence to sense, detect, and identify threats, which is especially the case with critical infrastructure, allowing security operators sufficient response time to protect people and facilities.

FLIR offers combinations of uncooled fixed / pan-tilt thermal imaging cameras, ground surveillance radars and long-range multi-sensor imaging systems working together to provide a significantly “hardened” perimeter that will serve to enhance overall security.

Perimeter technology that goes beyond the fence
FLIR multi-sensor systems and integrated solutions for surveillance security are now available for critical infrastructures. All of these systems may be operated independently or in a fully integrated radar/sensor network.

FLIR uncooled fixed thermal imaging cameras can be positioned to cover fence lines, creating a “thermal fence” by leveraging the excellent detection capabilities of thermal imaging cameras coupled to the built in video analytics , that can provide true edge detection of potential intruders on the fence line area.

FLIR medium and long range pan / tilt multi-sensor systems can be deployed to receive alarms from fence line layer of cameras with slew-to-cue integration for security operators to assess the alarm.

FLIR ground-based radars, high resolution radars that accurately detect and track vehicles, small vessels, people, and crawlers, swimmers in virtually any climate, weather, or lighting condition completing a “persistent surveillance solution” to continuously monitor a perimeter and other designated areas using rules-based detection methods; eliminating the need for constant human monitoring of video screens. Upon detection of an intrusion attempt, multi-sensor imaging systems will slew-to-cue to provide target assessment and visual tracking.

With FLIR integrated thermal imaging cameras and radar systems, layered security solutions can truly begin beyond the physical fence and/or virtual fence at sea. Understanding the nature of a threat is critical to intercepting and defeating it. For any effective security system, it is a key requirement of knowing where the threat is coming from, its current location and where it is going. FLIR ground surveillance radars (detection), paired with slew-to-cue ‘ready' FLIR Pan Tilt medium and long range thermal/daylight cameras (assessment), which effectively monitor and control real fence/perimeter breaches, enable security personnel to monitor and control the security zone by intercepting threats before they can complete their mission.

 Advantages
-give lowest cost per km of protection
-robust all weather, night & day performance
-scan,classify and track multiple targets at the same time
-slew to cue and target tracking integration.

FIFA 2014 World Cup stadium increases security with Sony

FIFA 2014 World Cup stadium increases security with Sony

Editor / Provider: Sony | Updated: 6/13/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Mineirao Stadium, officially known as The Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto, has been redeveloped into a 64,000 seat multi-event arena with intelligent security systems and sustainable power consumption.

Background
48 years ago, on 5 September 1965, the Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto was inaugurated with a match between Selecao Mineira and River Plate. Since then, the stadium, popularly known as Mineirao, has undergone several refurbishments and been listed by the Cultural Heritage Advisory Committee of the Belo Horizonte municipality.

Now, in preparation to host matches during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics, Mineirao has undergone large-scale redevelopment to make it a multi-event arena. Managed by Minas Arena, it is considered one of the country's main stadiums and has now earned its place as one of the key venues for the two biggest sporting events in the world.

Challenges
The main challenge was to select a high-tech security solution for the arena, with technology that reached and exceeded the standards in force at major football stadiums abroad. This had to be done while complying with FIFA's requirements, whilst time minimising costs in order to remain within the set budget.

A Technology Committee was established at the planning and construction stage. This Committee defined the systems, IT and telecommunications solutions for the Minas government's public notice, using the most sophisticated technology, in line with FIFA's requirements.

Solution
Systems integrator Johnson Controls set the parameters for consideration and selected Sony cameras for the project. The selection process took several types of cameras into account, based on the individual requirements of each one.

The chosen solution involved a total of 364 Sony security cameras, and was completed through Johnsons Controls. The solution consisted of 275 fixed HD high-resolution cameras, and 89 mobile HD high-resolution rapid dome cameras with optical and digital zoom.

The Sony SNC-DH180 was used for the fixed camera requirements. Used to protect against vandalism it has an infrared illuminator that guarantees images even in darkness. They are high-resolution HD cameras, offering 30 frames per second and a PoE (Power over Ethernet) system.

Sony SNC-ER520 rapid dome cameras were used for the mobile cameras, providing a 360 degree continuous pan quality image, with a wide visual field, PTZ 36x optical functions and 12x digital zoom. Their power system is HPoE (High Power over Ethernet).

The cameras were installed in strategic locations to allow monitoring of internal areas, the stands and critical areas. They are located in areas which included internal corridors, the car park, turnstile access areas and by the pitch. All the images generated by the CCTV system are directed to Mineirao's Operational Control Centre. These images are monitored in real time to assist with security. CCTV operation and management software is available, and all images are stored on a server for a fixed period of time.

Why Sony was selected
Johnson Controls carried out a broad market analysis, to select the best partner for the project. They required a partner that would honour the company's strength and had appropriate technical expertise, with the potential to provide their employees with the best training.

In a partnership that was approved by the Technology Committee, Sony was selected because it best fulfilled these criteria, while also providing the reliability and versatility that the stadium needed. Sony's cameras were easily integrated into the stadium's CCTV management infrastructure.

On top of high image standards, Sony's IP cameras also offer DEPA (Distributed Enhanced Processing Architecture) smart image analysis features. These offer the Minas Arena the perfect recording and monitoring solution for high quality image analysis and detection through alarm activation and processing in and around the stadium.

Results
The planning, supply and installation of the Sony systems were completed in record time, between March and December 2012. The Stadium is now equipped with a state of the art security solution that meets the safety requirements set by Johnson Controls and Minas Arena Technology Committee.

Samsung Techwin introduces new products for retail

Samsung Techwin introduces new products for retail

Editor / Provider: Samsung Techwin | Updated: 6/12/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Just in time for the summer sales, Samsung Techwin has simultaneously launched a compact vandal-resistant dome camera and a small footprint PoE network video recorder (NVR). Together the 2MP Full HD SNV-6013 and 4 channel ‘zero configuration' SRN-472S provide an ideal solution for retailers looking to deter and detect shoplifting and other criminal activity.

SNV-6013 dome camera
With a diameter of less than 113mm and a height of just 64mm, the SNV-6013 vandal-resistant dome is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. It is designed to provide an aesthetically attractive, as well as competitively priced option, for retail applications. It is also likely to appeal to installers and end-users who are looking for a discreet camera for office, healthcare, hotels and transport environments or where there may be limited space such as in lifts, entrance lobbies and stair wells.

The SNV-6013, which is able to capture 2MP Full HD (1920 x 1080) images, is equipped with Samsung Techwin's open platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset which provides users with complete freedom to choose their perfect combination of video analytics and video management software (VMS), which best matches their individual requirements.

An enhanced Wide Dynamic Range feature, with performance greater than 120dB, enables the SNV-6013 to overcome the challenge of monitoring areas such as shop entrances, where there may be strong external lighting and large amounts of glass. Suitable for both internal and external use, the SNV-6013 is vandal-resistant to IK10 and weatherproof to IP66 and benefits from a Digital Image Stabilisation feature which compensates for any camera shake.

SRN-472S NVR
The SRN-472S is ideal for those with limited experience of IP. With a built-in PoE switch and ‘zero configuration' requirements, it truly is a case of Plug & Play. Installation time and cost is minimised by the PoE (Power over Ethernet) feature which removes the need for separate cables to each of the cameras for power and image transmission purposes.

The small footprint of just 370x44x320mm of the SRN-472S is likely to attract the attention of space conscious retailers who may wish to locate it under a checkout desk or in a small security cupboard.

With an additional HDD installed alongside the 4TB capacity HDD which is supplied as standard, and through a recording bandwidth of 32Mbts, the SRN-472S can record Full HD images in real-time across all of its four channels and store them on-board for up to two months. With both HDMI and VGA outputs, the SRN-472S also provides retailers with the option of demonstrating to customers, via an ‘in-store' monitor, that they are being observed and protected by a high performance video surveillance system. This also negates the need for a PC to locally monitor the system.

Samsung Techwin's license-free SmartViewer and iPOLiS Mobile monitoring software provides operational and security personnel with the option to remotely view live or recorded video from a PC or any Android or IOS supported smartphone or tablet.

As is the case with all Samsung Techwin video surveillance solutions, the SNV-6013 and SRN-472S are offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full 3-year warranty.
