VIVOTEK launches new 3-Megapixel WDR pro network cameras

VIVOTEK launches new 3-Megapixel WDR pro network cameras

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 11/17/2014 | Article type: Security 50

VIVOTEK announced the launch of three brand-new 3-Megapixel WDR Pro network cameras, including two fixed-dome network cameras, the FD8173-H and FD8373-EHV, and a bullet-style network camera, the IB8373-EH.

The FD8173-H, FD8373-EHV and IB8373-EH all feature 3-Megapixel CMOS sensor and are able to output 20 frames per second at 2048 x 1536 resolution. Equipped with WDR Pro technology, all 3 cameras can cope with challenging light conditions. WDR Pro allows the FD8173-H, FD8373-EHV and IB8373-EH to capture both the dark and bright parts of an image and combine up to 3 separate frames to generate a highly realistic representation of the original scene. In addition, employing 3D Noise Reduction technology, these 3 cameras are able to suppress sensor noise, thus reducing bandwidth consumption and enhancing image detail in extremely bright as well as dark environments. In order to ensure the delivery of superior image clarity and usability, these 3 cameras are all equipped with built-in IR illuminators, effective up to 20 or 30 meters, and Smart-IR technology to avoid overexposure, ensuring optimal image quality around the clock.

The FD8373-EHV and IB8373-EH are designed for diverse outdoor applications. Both cameras are encased in weatherproof housing, ensuring smooth operation even under harsh weather conditions. The FD8373-EHV is protected by IK10-rated vandal-proof housing, guarding the camera against any vicious vandalism or attempted tampering.

Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK, stated: “Continuing to put great efforts into image quality enhancement, we are pleased to launch these three new WDR Pro network cameras. With such outstanding image process capability, they are undoubtedly the ideal options for locations which suffer from challenging lighting conditions, such as train station platforms, parking areas, and entrances of buildings.”

The ADT Corporation reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014. The Company reported diluted earnings per share of $0.47. Excluding special items for the separation from Tyco, merger and restructuring costs, 2G radio conversion costs, and discrete tax items, diluted earnings per share was $0.55, a 19.6% increase as compared to diluted earnings per share excluding special items of $0.46 in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The Company reported total revenue of $883 million, an increase of 4.4%, or 4.7% in constant currency, compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Recurring revenue, which made up 93% of total revenue in the quarter, was $819 million, up 5.4% compared to the same period last year and up 5.8% in constant currency. Recurring revenue growth in the quarter was primarily driven by an increase in ADT's organic average revenue per customer, which rose 3.7% over last year to $42.32, and the consolidation of Reliance Protectron for eleven weeks in the quarter. Revenue attrition for the quarter improved 40 basis points sequentially and year-over-year to 13.5%, while unit attrition for residential and small business improved 30 basis points sequentially, and 10 basis points from last year, to 13.2%.

Excluding Protectron, EBITDA margin before special items was 52.6%, 170 basis points above fourth quarter of 2013.

Free cash flow before special items was $54 million(1) in the quarter, down from $91 million(1) in the same period last year due to an increase in customer acquisitions and other growth investments, as well as higher interest paid on incremental debt in the quarter. The Company also reported steady-state free cash flow before special items, calculated on a pre-tax and unlevered basis, of $966 million(1), up 3% from last year.

FULL YEAR 2014 RESULTS
For the year ended September 26, 2014, the Company reported net income of $304 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.66. Total revenue was $3.4 billion, a year-over-year increase of 3.0%, or 3.4% in constant currency(1). Recurring revenue was $3.2 billion, up 3.7% compared to the same period last year and up 4.0% in constant currency(1). EBITDA before special items increased by $77 million to $1.8 billion(1), ending 4.6% higher than the prior year and EBITDA margins before special items was 51.8%(1), a 70 basis point improvement year-over-year.

Excluding special items, diluted earnings per share for the year was $2.02(1) compared to diluted earnings per share excluding special items of $1.84(1) in 2013. Using the Company's cash tax rate, diluted earnings per share before special items was $2.92(1).

"We ended the year with a solid quarter, consistent with our most recent guidance, positioning us to drive profitable growth in the year ahead," said Naren Gursahaney, ADT's chief executive officer. "I am proud of how our team has responded to the competitive landscape, while continuing to leverage ADT's competitive advantages to deliver a great customer experience and create long term value for our shareholders. We continued to build on the momentum we have seen over the past two quarters, as we drove increases in gross adds, exceeding last year's strong fourth quarter performance, and reduced attrition below prior year and our guidance for the year. Our strong operational results and our continued commitment to cost efficiency fueled improvements in EBITDA before special items(1) and bottom line results(1). Pulse continues to perform well, as we recently added our one millionth Pulse customer, and our overall fourth quarter take rate was 51%. We completed our post-separation transition activities from Tyco, freeing up resources to sharpen the focus on our operations, to improve the customer experience, and to strengthen our competitive position. While we are pleased with our progress this quarter, we recognize we have more to accomplish and I am excited about what our team can accomplish in the year ahead."

PROGRESS ON 2014 PRIORITIES: DELIVERING ON GROWTH INITIATIVES
* Growth investments in ADT Pulse propels Pulse customer base to over 1 million subscribers - The Company continued to extend its position as a leading provider of monitored interactive home automation solutions, achieving strong growth in its ADT Pulse platform. In our residential direct channel, approximately 70% of new customers purchased a Pulse security system, and upgrade units more than doubled from a year ago. Total ADT Pulse surpassed the one millionth customer milestone and now make up 16% of ADT's total customer base.

* Attrition reduction initiatives leading to improved customer retention - The majority of customer attrition is driven by relocations associated with the housing recovery as well as non-pay customers. The Company continued to take action to reduce customer attrition by completing its roll out of tighter credit screening policies and implementing other non-pay initiatives, strengthening resale efforts, customer loyalty programs, and driving increased penetration of ADT Pulse automation services, which currently exhibits better retention characteristics. These actions, along with a more stable housing market, drove improvements resulting in revenue attrition in the quarter of 13.5% -- a 40 basis point improvement sequentially and year-over-year, and unit attrition in our residential and small business channels of 13.2% -- a 30 basis point improvement sequentially and 10 basis points below 2013.

* Increases in dealer channel production surpasses prior year level - Aligned with a key priority to improve productivity in the dealer channel, the Company took steps to strengthen the quality and output of this channel.
* *Customer adds from the dealer channel grew by 20% sequentially and 17% from the fourth quarter last year. ADT dealer production, excluding Protectron, rose 7% sequentially and 5% from the fourth quarter last year. Dealer production has risen every quarter this year and this is the first quarter in 2014 we reported year-over-year growth.
* *The Company expanded its dealer network and drove a 47% take rate in ADT Pulse units in the quarter, up from 23% in the comparable period last year.

* Expanding presence in business interactive security and automation - The Company is executing on growth initiatives in the small business and mid-size commercial space.
* *Following the expiration of the non-compete provisions with Tyco, the Company re-branded its Small Business channel as ADT Business, with an expanded focus into the mid-size commercial space.
* *ADT Pulse take rate in the small business channel continued to improve as 46% of new small business customers added during the quarter adopted Pulse.
* *The Company expanded its video surveillance and analytics offering to include both cloud-based and on-site secure storage solutions, providing small business owners with enhanced visibility into the security of their business premises.
* *The Company continued to execute upon its strategic plan to deliver customized security and automation solutions to address the most common needs and concerns of business owners within a particular industry by announcing the Food and Beverage Solutions Bundle in addition to the previously announced ADT Retail Solutions Bundle.

* Forging new partnerships to achieve future vision - The Company continued to build out its strategic partnerships as it looks to expand beyond its strength in managing and protecting physical assets to protecting digital assets and protecting its customers outside of the home.
* *The Company announced that it will begin marketing its products and services at Best Buy, creating a strong reatil presence for ADT in the US.
* *The Company announced a new relationship with IFTTT, a service that enables consumers to create powerful connections with one simple statement - if this then that. The partnership will enhance the ADT Pulse home automation experience as ADT and IFTTT are planning to test a beta version of an ADT Pulse Channel on IFTTT, connecting a customer's ADT Pulse-enabled home with more than 100 existing Channel partners. Whether it's adjusting the thermostat in reaction to local weather conditions, or arming the security system based on users' GPS data, an ADT Pulse Channell on IFTTT could enable users to put many aspects of their home on auto-pilot.

* Completed Reliance Protectron acquisition positioning Canadian operations for growth - The Company completed its acquisition of Reliance Protectron, expanding and strengthening its position in Canada. The Company has begun integrating Protectron's operations and customer base, which includes approximately 370,000 high quality residential and commercial customers (excluding approximately 30,000 wholesale contract monitoring accounts). Included in the Company's consolidated results are Protectron's operations for 11 weeks of the fourth quarter 2014.

"We delivered another quarter of solid execution and improved operating metrics, while accelerating our investment in growth," said Michael Geltzeiler, ADT's chief financial officer. "In the fourth quarter, we closed the Protectron acquisition, prepared for the launch of expanded commercial capabilities and advanced several new partnerships designed to strengthen our business for the future. We achieved our cost objectives for the year, grew steady-state free cash flow(1), improved EBITDA margin before special items by 90 basis points(1) before Protectron and drove direct subscriber acquisition creation multiples back below 30x for the quarter. For the year, we reported a 10% increase in diluted EPS before special items(1) enhanced by optimizing our capital structure with the repurchase of 35 million shares and increasing leverage. We also increased our quarterly dividend by 60%. With the post-separation transition activities behind us, we have a healthy list of productivity improvements still to be executed in both cost to serve and SAC, providing a runway for increased profitability and investment funding to fuel growth."

PROGRESS ON 2014 PRIORITIES: DRIVING COST EFFICIENCIES
* The Company made progress on its cost efficiency initiatives, improving its EBITDA margin before special items(1) and direct creation multiple excluding the impact of upgrades over the course of the year. Total operating expenses before special items(3) were up only 5.5% over last year despite the acquisitions of Reliance Protectron and Devcon as well as higher depreciation and amortization ("D&A") expenses of 10.5%, as we transition our customer base to Pulse and home automation. Excluding D&A, total operating expenses before special items(3 rose 1.8%.


* Cost to serve / G&A - Cost to serve before special items(3) was up 3.5% compared to last year and increased 6.8% sequentially due to higher product related costs associated with the increase in ADT Pulse accounts and the addition of Reliance Protectron.


* Subscriber acquisition cost (SAC) / Creation multiple - Total net SAC creation multiple, excluding the impact of Pulse upgrades, was 30.6x, a sequential improvement of 0.4x. Direct net SAC creation multiple, excluding the impact of upgrades and Protectron was 29.9x. Sequential improvements in the net creation multiple were driven by SAC improvements, partially due to the higher level of gross additions, rationalization in the installation area and higher ARPU from our new customers. We expect to benefit more from these and other initiatives, including the launch of electronic contracts and planned hardware efficiencies in 2015.

PROGRESS ON 2014 PRIORITIES: CAPITAL STRUCTURE OPTIMIZATION
* Share repurchase - In 2014, the Company has repurchased 35 million shares for $1.4 billion, at an average price of $38.49.
* Debt/Capital Structure - Long-term debt totaled $5.1 billion at the end of the quarter, bringing the Company's leverage ratio, based off of a trailing twelve month EBITDA before special items, to 2.8(1) on a pro-forma basis.
* Quarterly dividend - The Company paid a quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share on August 20th, an increase of 60% versus last year.

FULL YEAR FISCAL 2015 GUIDANCE
The Company is providing the following guidance for full year fiscal 2015:
* Recurring revenue growth in the range of 5% - 6%
* EBITDA before special items growth in the range of $70M - $100M
* Year-over-year increase in gross additions for direct and dealer channels
* Unit attrition below 13%
* Steady-state free cash flow before special items greater than $1 billion

AXIS announces stainless steel anti-grip corner-mount IP camera

AXIS announces stainless steel anti-grip corner-mount IP camera

Editor / Provider: Axis Communications | Updated: 11/13/2014 | Article type: Security 50

AXIS Q8414-LVS Network Camera features vandal-resistant stainless steel anti-grip casing and built-in invisible IR LED for high quality indoor video surveillance even in complete darkness.

Axis Communications announces its first corner-mount fixed network camera. The new AXIS Q8414-LVS features a stainless steel anti-grip casing and is extremely impact resistant, supporting the IK10+ 50joules rating as well as the IP66/NEMA 4X rating for water resistance. The 24/7 indoor surveillance camera provides superb image quality both during day and night with capabilities like Lightfinder technology, which enables life-like colors in low-light conditions, and built-in invisible IR LED illuminator for video surveillance in complete darkness.

“In correctional facilities as well as in psychiatric wards, there is an increasing need to prevent self-harm and avoid internal conflicts among the residents,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis' Director of Product Management. “We have developed AXIS Q8414-LVS keeping in mind that a surveillance camera should lack ligature points and present an anti-grip design. On top of these features, it should also offer superb video quality during day and night and be extremely vandal resistant.”

The new AXIS Q8414-LVS is ideal for video surveillance of small rooms in premises like correctional facilities, interview rooms, psychiatric wards, and medical observation rooms as well as elevators and stairwells. Thanks to a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network camera into an alarm system via its I/O port, AXIS Q8414-LVS becomes part of the overall surveillance solution, an important tool to protect and secure the safety of the people in high security environments. In addition, privacy masks assure that restricted areas are not monitored for privacy reasons or to protect the personnel.

Available in two color versions, powder coated white (AXIS Q8414-LVS White) and brushed stainless steel (AXIS Q8414-LVS Metal), the corner-mount network camera offers 1.3 Megapixel or HDTV 720p video stream. It features P-Iris control for an optimal depth of field, resolution, image contrast and clarity. The horizontal angle of view up to 105° covers the entire room without blind spots. Capabilities such as remote zoom and focus facilitate the optimization of the captured view during the installation.

AXIS Q8414-LVS features a unique design that has been developed to be perceived softer and less provocative than that of other security installations in correctional facilities and psychiatric wards. Working closely with prison and health authorities in several countries as well as system integrators and installers, Axis designed AXIS Q8414-LVS to feature as few cavities and holes as possible so prisoners and patients cannot stuff anything inside them and the camera is easy to clean.

AXIS Q8414-LVS Network Camera is supported by the industry's largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras include support for AXIS Camera Companion, AXIS Camera Application Platform, AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.

AXIS Q8414-LVS is planned to be available in December 2014 through Axis distribution channels.

The 18th Secutech offers biz opportunities for global security players

Editor / Provider: Secutech | Updated: 11/10/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

Secutech is the annual international exhibition and conference for world-class manufacturers and discerning buyers of security products and solutions. The 18th edition is officially confirmed to take place from 28 – 30 April 2015 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center in Taiwan.

Mr Parson Lee, Managing Director of organiser Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd, said: “The upcoming edition of Secutech will be held in April. This strategic timing allows exhibitors to present their latest technologies and launch new products during the optimum sourcing season. The show is highly anticipated by suppliers from across the globe, especially those in China, South Korea and Taiwan. These three major manufacturing bases account for up to 70% of the global security-based product output. We will once again serve as a premier networking platform for fair participants to form strategic partnerships and distributorships.”

Two debut product zones with enhanced categorisation cater to industry needs
Secutech 2015 aims to cater to demand for a wider spectrum of safety and security-related products. As a result, six special product zones, two of which are new additions to the fair, will be featured. The latest zones cover:

* Transmission & Network
Transmission distance limitations have been a major obstacle for HD migration. However, recent advancements in transmission and networking technologies allow video feeds to be sent at higher speeds. The Transmission & Network zone will feature leading Taiwanese information and communications technology (ICT) solution providers to present last mile technologies. There will also be a demonstration area for industry professionals to exchange ideas for smoother HD migration.

*Software & Storage
Higher resolution images are propelling intensive usage of data storage and management. The Software & Storage zone will be a networking platform for hardware makers, software developers and system integrators to interact. This zone aims to raise awareness of Video Management Software (VMS) and Video Content Analytics (VCA) technologies in Asia. VMS is the foundation for video monitoring, analysis and recording. The development of its extensive application is influential to various vertical markets in the industry.
