exacqVision 6.6 release introduces ESM failover for increased reliability

exacqVision 6.6 release introduces ESM failover for increased reliability

Editor / Provider: Exacq Technologies | Updated: 12/17/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Exacq Technologies, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces the ability to set up and manage failover on exacqVision servers with exacqVision 6.6 and Enterprise System Manager (ESM) version 3.0, a health monitoring program for use with exacqVision Enterprise networked video recorders (NVRs). The new exacqVision version 6.6 VMS (video management system) also includes updates to the views and event monitoring features in exacqVision, faster searching with the Exacq mobile app and additional updates to ESM.

The new ESM failover functionality continually monitors exacqVision recorders. A system failure can be detected within 15-30 seconds and an actual failover to a spare server or servers can be automatically instigated in a matter of minutes. Failover functions include IP cameras, recording schedules, user rights, event linking, serial profiles, archiving configuration and more. Once the protected recorder is back online, ESM automatically transfers all functionality back to the original server. Users can also use ESM Failover to perform manual failover on exacqVision recorders at any time to conduct system maintenance.

“The new ESM Failover feature adds substantial value to our exacqVision enterprise solution,” notes Scott Dennison, Director of Marketing, Exacq Technologies. “We recognized the need for our customers to maximize video recorder uptime and delivered a failover solution to ensure video recording is never interrupted.”

In addition to the new failover feature, ESM version 3.0 also adds features that improve server user management over an enterprise network. This makes it easier for system administrators to add and remove servers and users from defined groups.

exacqVision 6.6 gives users and system administrators greater flexibility and personalization when creating and using the views feature. Views can now be shared with all users, shared with a defined group of users or kept private to individual users. Version 6.6 also provides increased event monitoring flexibility. Users can prioritize events to ensure the most important events always display first. Additionally, users can drag live cameras into an event monitoring video panel at any time. These updates to event monitoring ensure that the most important video is always in front of an active viewer. Version 6.6 of exacqVision adds support for over 100 new IP camera models from leading manufacturers including American Dynamics, Arecont Vision, Axis, Bosch, Panasonic, Samsung, and Vivotek. The exacqVision VMS now supports nearly 2,200 IP camera models.

The latest Exacq Mobile app (Version 3.10) for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices now utilizes the same SpeedSearch functionality found in the full client software. SpeedSearch provides significantly faster search results as video frames automatically populate on the screen for faster investigations. This is an ideal solution for searching video over low-bandwidth connections using mobile devices that rely on cellular data.

The exacqVision VMS is accessed with the freely distributed exacqVision client software (Windows/Linux/Mac), the exacqVision free web browser client available for all leading web browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera), as well as the free Exacq Mobile app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices. The VMS software is included with pre-configured exacqVision recorders or it can be installed on third-party Windows or Linux based systems.

Foxstream & Samsung Techwin in partnership: people counting application for WiseNetIII cameras

Foxstream & Samsung Techwin in partnership: people counting application for WiseNetIII cameras

Editor / Provider: Foxstream | Updated: 12/18/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

Foxstream, the fast growing software company specialising in real-time VCA (Video Content Analysis) is pleased to announce its partnership with Samsung Techwin.

Foxstream's people counting application can now be run on board Samsung Techwin's Open Platform WiseNetIII cameras and end users can therefore benefit from a high performance counting application which works fully with Samsung's latest professional camera functions.

 

Focus on FoxCounter embedded in WiseNetIII cameras:


FoxCounter is Foxstream's first solution to benefit from this strategic alliance. Based on the FoxVigi counting solution module on server, the embedded version, FoxCounter, answers various needs, from statistics to security issues. Mostly used in places welcoming people, FoxCounter is able to help:
* Identify attendance peaks
* Establish reference bases (day/week/month), in order to measure evolutions
* Inform the operator in real time on the site's occupation rate, according to the maximum accommodation capacity

The dedicated web interface fits perfectly with the Samsung Techwin WiseNetIII cameras' configuration screen, and allows in particular, listing of all the data reported by each camera on the same network. From a simple web browser and by connecting to a single camera, the operator can easily access all the statistics, and know at all times the number of people in a building, even if it has multiple entrances and exits.

Samsung Techwin's Open Platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset is at the heart of the company's latest generation of 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel high definition video surveillance cameras. The processing power of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset enables it to run multiple edge based Applications such as FoxCounter, as well as video analytics, facial recognition and ANPR solutions, which can be downloaded in a similar way to adding Apps to a Smartphone. It also offers users the freedom to utilise the video management software (VMS), that best matches specific project requirements.

The WiseNetIII range is perfect for FoxCounter, as it supports P-Iris, which optimizes the iris function when multiple lighting conditions exist in a single scene. This results in images with better contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field. P-Iris makes it easier for FoxCounter to recognise the flow direction. Indeed, FoxCounter performs bi-directionally in a ceiling-mounted camera, offering an easy-to-use and very accurate solution even under varying lighting conditions, such as light movements, shadows, reflections, etc.

Thanks to the WDR function built into the WiseNetIII series that provide enhanced picture quality, motion blur is reduced and clearer images are processed. FoxCounter can therefore refine the counting results, when several people cross the counting area simultaneously, and provide adequate figures.

FoxCounter is ideal for retail, airports, railway stations, museums, theme parks and any place with visitor traffic. It is also an autonomous solution: in case of network cuts, the data is stored directly inside the camera. The integration with third party systems is also simplified by the implementation of standard procedures of data recovery.

Clarifying the myths of HD-Over-Coaxial solutions

Clarifying the myths of HD-Over-Coaxial solutions

Editor / Provider: Alf Chang, a&s International | Updated: 12/15/2014 | Article type: Tech Corner

 

HD-over-coaxial solutions, which transmit high-definition video over coaxial cables, provide an alternative to HD surveillance besides IP. However, there are still doubts and concerns from the market about how they are set up and whether they can truly deliver. This article lists some of the myths concerning HD-over-coaxial and demystifies them one by one.

 

Q: For HDCVI, it's compatible only with its own DVRs. What about HDTVI and AHD? Are they able to connect with any type of DVRs?

A: The answer to this is of course negative. Each HD-over-coaxial solution has its own format and must go with its own DVRs. The only solution that's compatible with all formats is 960H. After initial testing, it was confirmed that different-brand HDTVI and AHD cameras can work with their respective DVRs, as long as the same format is used.

Q: Will HDCVI and HDTVI completely replace 960H, since their picture quality is the same as 960H?

A:
In terms of what the 720p HD-over-coaxial solution can offer, it is indeed very similar to 960H picture quality. However, 960H products still stand out since they are offered and supported by most of the current camera vendors. We can assume in the future, if there are more 1080p HD-over-coaxial solutions being introduced to the market, it will definitely affect the market of 960H or even IP for the SMB sector.

Q: Could the current HD-over-coaxial DVRs support 720p and 1080p at the same time?

A:
The answer is no. Test results show that HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD each can support 720P and 1080P cameras and corresponding 720P and 1080P DVRs. The issue right now is whether the same DVR can record 720P and 1080P videos at the same time, no matter which technology is employed. This still needs to be confirmed.

Q: When different numbers of HD cameras are used, or when coaxial cables of different lengths or grades are used, would there be any signal loss issues? Experience dictates that when signals are transmitted through different-length coaxial cables, the disparity in voltage may cause poor reflection of images, which may appear to be stacking up on one another. Or, the difference in electrical grounding may create noise. Will this also affect HD-over-coaxial?

A: The answer is yes, due to the lack of equalizers in HD-over-coaxial DVRs at the current stage.

Q: From a project implementation perspective, does transmission distance for HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD matter? Is it a key factor to consider?

A:
Another good question. Each HD-over-coaxial solution claims to be able to transmit over a distance of 300 to 500 meters, or even 600 to 1,000 meters. First, we must applaud HD-over-coaxial for breaking the distance barrier. Yet from a project perspective, this doesn't really mean anything. First, in the past, transmission over a 5C-2V cable without a booster can go for 200 to 225 meters. With booster, transmission can be extended to over 400 meters. Yet quality loss is a byproduct of signal boosting, as noise is augmented. So for any coaxial implementation, shorter distances are preferred due to reliability. To transmit beyond 500 meters without sacrificing picture quality or reducing the number of cameras, what's usually done is the usage of multimode fiber for distances of three to five kilometers or single-mode fiber for longer distances. With a dense wavelength division multiplexing device, one multimode fiber or single-mode fiber can transmit four to 32 streams. In other words, from a project perspective, transmission distance is not an issue and is not a determining factor for choosing between HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD.

Q: With HDCVI, HDTVI, and AHD breaking traditional distance barriers, can they really help with larger projects, or are they more suitable for SMEs?

A: No matter what grade of coax cable you use, it's just a medium. Transmission distance really depends on the system and voltage. The size of project depends on several things – for example, whether there will be compatible matrix systems like those used for HD-SDI, or HD DVRs that support more channels. Only by then will the discussion of which solution suits which type of project be more meaningful. For now, HD-over-coaxial is implemented in the same way as traditional analog, namely for small- to medium-size projects through a DVR+CMS architecture.

The above were answers to questions commonly asked of HD-over-coaxial solutions. Once they are more widespread in the market, there will surely be more questions concerning their technology and applications. That's when HD-over-coaxial will truly become a game changer.

Bridging the smart home divide

Bridging the smart home divide

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by AirLive | Updated: 12/15/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

Founded in 1993, OvisLink Corp. is a leading Taiwan-based networking solution provider, selling its products under its own brand AirLive. Started out as a wireless product maker, the company gradually expanded into the development of surveillance cameras. Today, it designs some of the most avant-garde smart cameras for both the home and professional markets. The MD-3025-IVS 3-Megapixel Mini-dome IPCAMs are few examples of their latest creations. When asked about the design, Albert Yeh, VP of OvisLink said they are direct results of AirLive's design language, in which: “ergonomics and small-form factor” are heavily emphasized. “The AirLive 3-Megapixel IPCAM is currently the smallest of its kind in the world when considering its size,” Dr. Yeh said. “They can be mounted anywhere, including buses and trains.”

The AirLive smart camera range can be separated in two categories: home (DIY) and professional use. Although across the US – currently the world's biggest smart home market – DIY smart home cameras still holds the reign, Dr. Yeh said they still focus heavily on professional, industrial-grade cameras which are catered solely for the installer market.

“Some have been focusing on smart cameras for nearly a decade, but they never really took off because initially the majority of them were catered only to luxury homes. However, prospect-wise, they still look promising.”

As more companies continue to hop on the smart home bandwagon, forecasters are expecting the market to be influenced by both the sunny skies and storms depending on the product's integration of function and application. Carving a design concept is the mindset of the mainstream. “We design products that are coherent with the environment and their surroundings,” said Dr. Yeh.

ADDING INTELLIGENCE
According to Dr. Yeh, smart home cameras have two critical functions: monitor and control. While the average user may already know pet and baby watch, or energy consumption control, these functions are nothing new when it comes to surveillance cameras.

The company is integrating “intelligence” to the mini-dome camera line by incorporating new features to their bundled software. The AirLive smart software has built-in Intelligent Video Analytics that features: Face detection & recognition, iMotion detection, Trip zone, Object counting, and e-Fence.

As smart cameras continue to evolve and improve with time - new CPUs, ICs and image sensors, - the technology gap will remain tight amongst competitors because everybody is churning out cameras with near or similar hardware specs. “Expertise is not about having the best components, but in component tuning,” Dr. Yeh said.

OvisLink is currently looking into developing intelligent cameras with IR control. They will mostly likely remain a compact-form factor similar to the mini-dome line.

NOT IN THE CLOUD
Although the Cloud's growing clout may threaten to stifle growth across the traditional PC and notebook markets, especially for PCs DRAM, displays and CD-ROMs, smart camera makers have yet to totally embrace the services provided with the Cloud.

“One major issue with the Cloud is that it cannot take real-time recording,” Dr. Yeh said. “Also, for smart cameras, storage capacity is an issue because backing up video data in the Cloud is limited.”

The Cloud storage services currently available (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) are offered for free but with limited storage capacity. For applications that require 24-hour live recording, this would make it hard for camera makers and users to swallow. Dr. Yeh said that they prefer to use local storage (NVR, NAS or SD card), then retrieve data (video) from the remote end.

4K, H.265 AND OBSTACLES
When asked about if AirLive will adopt H.265 in their future range of smart cameras, Dr. Yeh said the current H.264 video codec, which is good for achieving 720p resolution, covers the majority of the world's users. Furthermore, adopting H.265 would mean to create smart cameras at a higher expense, even though H.265 is important for future applications because of 4K video. But for smart home users, H.265 is not attainable for the masses.

“The problem is not in technology, but with integration,” said Dr. Yeh. The biggest obstacle for makers is regarding interface adoption because currently there is no common ground or alliance that is similar to the smartphone and tablet sectors. The solution is not about hoping for the best platform to prevail – ZigBee, Z-Wave, or others – but for a big-brand company to tie the alliance together, said Dr. Yeh.
