Hikvision solutions assist in Iraqi security industry rebound

Hikvision solutions assist in Iraqi security industry rebound

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 12/19/2013 | Article type: Government & Public Services

Obviously, Iraq has gone through a great deal of upheaval in its recent history. Where much of its infrastructure was damaged by the first Gulf War in the early 90s, 2003's second Gulf War had a far more crippling effect.

Ahmed Shakir, CEO at the Iraqi-based security integrator Khairat Annabaa, explained: "After 2003, the private security industry was dealt a variety of problems; however the lack of IT professionals really affected our ability to provide modern solutions and modern security for our businesses."

However, with a decade's worth of hard work and dedication, both Iraq, and its businesses, are starting to bounce back. Mr. Shakir noted that the private security sector is beginning to thrive and Hikvision products are a growing presence in this revival.

Professional Security
For over 20 years, many private Iraqi businesses relied on an armed guard for security purposes. While this does provide a basic level of security, it also has a great many drawbacks and shortcomings. A guard is far from a comprehensive solution.

However, with the revival of professional solutions, its benefits have extended beyond solely better protection for a particular business. Khairat Annabaa's fuel storage distribution center project in Iraq's Amarah City illustrates this point.

Utilizing Hikvision's DS-2DF1-716 IR Network Speed Dome Camera, DS-2CD8254-EIS Network Bullet Camera, DS-2CD2012-I Network Bullet Camera, DS- 1100KI Keyboard, and DS-9616NI-SH NVR, this Amarah City solution not only provided an upgrade over guards, but also helped build security Infrastructure, improved overall security and most importantly, it promoted tourism

Building Security Infrastructure
Khairat Annabaa was initially an IT company. Now, through the improvement in both Iraqi infrastructure and economy, the time was ripe for Khairat Annabaa to use its IT knowhow and move into the security industry. Mr. Shakir noted, "The emergence of better Internet capacity, namely WiFi, has provided a great opportunity in the security industry for us."

Specifically, WiFi has greatly lowered the cost for solutions. In this fuel distribution center project, Hikvision's DS-2DF1-716 IR Network Speed Dome Cameras are placed on exterior towers to view the adjacent road; and utilizing its 30x optical zoom and 80m IR range functions, the license plates on cars entering the facility.

Additionally, the DS-2CD8254-EIS and DS-2CD2012-I Network Bullet Cameras are placed at specific fixed locations - such as critical areas such the primary fuel storage area - and along the borders to provide broader perimeter security. Both models can be as close as 100 meters or as far away as 4 kilometers from Hikvision's DS-9616NI-SH NVR.

For both camera models, WiFi makes this solution economically viable and provides the ability for managers and security personnel to access these cameras in their own offices; thereby providing an easier, cheaper, and more efficient solution. Additionally, Hikvision's DS- 1100KI Keyboard benefits by allowing 255 cameras to be used by 1 keyboard, and the ability to automatically utilize the cameras' zoom function on this keyboard.

Improving Overall Security & Terrorism Concerns
This fuel depot represents an important link in the overall Iraqi fuel supply chain. As a vital component to the economy, this site requires a suitable solution to the importance it holds.

Located on the main road between Amarah and Basurah, and near a logistically-important bridge for this road, this location is of obvious importance. However, the special nature of this specific site brings additional concern. Not only are important roads, bridges, and this fuel depot at this location, but also a thriving community with homes and an elementary school.

By utilizing WiFi to inexpensively link Hikvision cameras to Hikvision's DS-9616NI-SH NVR, managerial and security offices across great distances, this solution also provides improved overall security for the community at large.

Concurrently, this solution has "greatly reduced issues of terrorism. Now, with these Hikvision cameras monitoring not only the station, but the surrounding area, the community is much safer. This applies to common crime, but also to possible terrorism issues. Earlier, without cameras and WiFi, there wasn't a deterrent. Now, with these cameras and 8 hard disks of NVR hard-drive storage to record incidents, we can provide proactive safety measures," explained Mr. Shakir.

With Hikvision and Khairat Annabaa's IT abilities, Amarah City's fuel storage distribution center gained more than a simple solution. It gained a solution that provides protection - and civic stability.

Sanyu Elementary School adopts VIVOTEK surveillance solutions

Sanyu Elementary School adopts VIVOTEK surveillance solutions

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 12/6/2013 | Article type: Education

A Safer Campus Where Children Can Learn and Grow
Schools are places for students to learn and acquire professional and social skills. For children and young adults, school is also a place that shapes their personality, integrity and self-respect. However, schools often double as public places that are open to communities, making the safety and security on campus exceptionally important. Issues that may compromise campus security are diverse, ranging from trespassing and theft, to bullying, vandalism and injury. School-aged children are vulnerable and lack awareness when it comes to confronting danger. Thus, an integrated security mechanism with advanced and seamless surveillance should be installed on campus, securing a safe learning environment for children. With an advanced surveillance system, school staff can perform security networking right on campus, and police or security can do so remotely. If a suspicious person or object is detected, the alarm will trigger, mobilizing real-time assistance. Early detection of a dangerous situation on campus significantly increases the likelihood of prevention.

Enhanced Infrastructure, Strengthened Security
Sanyu Elementary School, located in the Tienmu area of Shihlin District, Taipei, Taiwan was founded in 1993. With a strong commitment to education, Sanyu Elementary School has executed a series of initiatives for building up a safe campus for its 1,500 students from grades 1 to 6. The school prioritizes healthy development and quality education, which can be seen in various academic courses, dynamic and multifaceted extracurricular activities, vigorous physical education programs and events, and a comprehensive tutorial system. However, solid security is needed for all these initiatives to operate smoothly, and to ensure parents that their children are learning in a safe environment. Sanyu Elementary School has put lots of effort and resources into security infrastructure enhancement and renovation. The surveillance system, as the pivotal mechanism for security on campus, also got an overhaul. After seeing the insufficient image quality of the existing analog cameras, the school decided to upgrade to an IP-based surveillance system. With VIVOTEK's local distributor Zero One Technology's professional advice and support, 48 VIVOTEK network cameras were chosen for the project. The two major reasons that Sanyu Elementary School go with VIVOTEK were: First, VIVOTEK is a leading brand in Taiwan. Second, VIVOTEK provides quality solutions, which have been also well recognized by other schools.

Unparalleled Visibility, Seamless Monitoring
48 network cameras have been installed in hallways, stairways, and around sports grounds, creating a seamless shield of protection for children wherever they are on campus.

Hallways and stairways, which are semi-outdoor areas, are places with high contrast lighting conditions. Capturing fine details while maintaining superb image quality can be challenging under such circumstances, only cameras with excellent image processing capability are adequate. VIVOTEK's IP8332-C, a 1MP bullet-style network camera, features a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators, effective up to 15M. This camera captures video with exceptional image quality and resolution around the clock. As for harsh outdoor environments, the IP8332-C is encased in weather-proof casing to withstand rain and dust, ensuring stable operation and monitoring under any weather condition. The IP8332-C is also an ideal option for monitoring hallways and stairways.

Apart from the indoors, children have physical education classes and play around outside on the sports grounds. However, monitoring this area can be challenging considering the openness of the premises. VIVOTEK's speed dome network camera SD8312E, with its sophisticated pan/tilt mechanism, was installed for sports ground surveillance. The SD8312E is capable of fast, precise movements with continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt. Designed with WDR Pro technology and a removable IR-cut filter, the camera is able to deliver unparalleled visibility day and night, clearly capturing every move on the ground. VIVOTEK's IP8130, a 1MP small-sized and elegant designed cube network camera, was installed in the security office at the school entrance. Any activity around the security office, such as intrusion or vandalism, can be monitored, protecting not only the security guard staff, but also school children. With a supporting smart phone application, VIVOTEK's iViewer, security guards can access live video off-site in real time through iPhone or Android platforms.

VIVOTEK is the Best Choice for Cementing Campus Security
Kelly Huang , Director of General Affairs at Sanyu Elementary School stated: “Ever since the establishment of Sanyu Elementary School 20 years ago, our top priorities have been the children's safety, positive growth and excellent scholarship. The school has put great effort into making the environment safer and friendlier. After VIVOTEK's cameras were installed, our surveillance quality improved significantly. The clarity and fine details in the footage delivered by VIVOTEK network cameras have exceeded our expectation. We are convinced that VIVOTEK is the best choice for campus security.”

William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK's International Business Division, stated: “Campus safety always needs to be stressed. Providing our children with a safe and enjoyable learning space ensures sound development. In recent years there have been several devastating attacks on schools around the world. There have been heartbreaking tragedies and innocent children have suffered, there have been incidents in the U.S, China and South America. Sometimes attacks are unpredictable, but precautionary measures, like a comprehensive security mechanism with advanced surveillance capacity, can minimize the possibility of tragedies and irreversible loss.”

Hikvision protects Canada's largest CSI facility

Hikvision protects Canada's largest CSI facility

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 12/5/2013 | Article type: Government & Public Services

The American television show CSI is a popular series in the North American market, but with syndication in the majority of the world's countries. The work done on shows like this is not simply Hollywood magic, but it is based on real science done by real law enforcement agents, forensic technicians, and scientists.

State-of-the-Art Facility
Case in point is the brand new Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex in Toronto, Canada. This facility, opened in September 2013, and is the largest of its nature in Canada, and represents one of the three largest in the entire world.

TV-style CSI operations are housed in the Forensic Services and Coroner's Complex (FSCC), it is also designed to handle issues related to biology, toxicology, chemistry, firearms, document and photo analysis, and electronics. Additionally, the FSCC includes multiple examination bays, ballistics facilities, and Canada's first Containment Level 3 autopsy suite, as well as being equipped to cope with mass fatality events such as airline crashes.

To protect these scientists, researchers, examiners, and administrative staff, as well as the facilities themselves, something more down-to-earth was needed: Hikvision security technology.

Marcomm Systems Group, the integrator working on the project, teamed with Carillion (the facility management company for the FSCC) to design a comprehensive solution to achieve these ends.

The Hikvision Advantage
During the installation process, Hikvision cameras were chosen, this project marks an important step for Hikvision in the Canadian market. Specifically, it is the first massive public project of this scale in which Hikvision has been involved. As such, it was important for Infrastructure Ontario (the quasi-public, quasi-private owner of this project) to see proof of Hikvision's quality. Hikvision's quality passed testing at all levels. And, being able to seamlessly integrate with the existing VMS software platform without any difficulties, or modifications was the final seal of approval.

Once approved, four Hikvision camera models were selected - The 2MP Vandal Resistant Network Dome Cameras, 1.3 MP Indoor and Outdoor Network High Speed Dome Cameras, and 1.3MP WDR Outdoor Network Cameras now provide the eyes for the FSCC.

These models, placed liberally throughout the FSCC, are positioned to monitor the roof line, building exterior, parking areas, medical labs, courthouse, jail cells, ballistics testing rooms, administration facilities, as well as other critical areas.

Due to the sensitivity regarding the nature of this project, exact locations, as well as Hikvision camera benefits in relation to these areas cannot be specified.

Realities of the Public Sector
The issue of quality is paramount for the Government of Ontario, as well as its real shareholders - the general public, who will ultimately be paying for a portion of this facility with their tax dollars. As such, financial responsibility is a real concern for all the players involved - from Infrastructure Ontario to Carillion to Marcomm Systems Group. Therefore, the ultimate goal was to provide top-level technology, but at a competitive price.

Dahua secures Autodrome di Modena motorsports park

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 11/26/2013 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Modena, known as "the capital of engines", is an ancient town in Italy. It is the heaven for racing enthusiasts since a lot of factories of the famous Italian sports car makers like Ferrari, De Tomaso, Lamborghini, Pagani and Maserati are now or once located here.

Autodrome di Modena is a Motorsports Park and located in a famous area called “Motor Valley”. The circuit length of the park reaches 2.7Km and the pit lane is with 21 boxes, new telemetric system and a well-equipped paddock.

Both of the well-knowing high risks of racing and its open outdoor environment pile up the difficulty and complexity for Autodrome di Modena in terms of security. During the design phase, two requirements were on the table, one was for the sake of security control, the other one was to offer checking on the racing of cars & motorbikes.

The structure of the circuit was taken into account; the decision then was to install 24 network megapixel cameras in the most important position of the track and also some speed domes in the open areas. The finally applied camera models include Dahua 2-megapixel full HD network cameras (IPC-HF3200) & speed dome cameras (SD6982A-HN), the storage device is Dahua 128 Channel Super NVR.

With Dahua VMS, this set safeguards the venue with superb image quality with every detail captured, along with flexible and convenient management; most of all, the open architecture of super NVR makes it possible for a further implementation in the long run.

Hikvision launches 960H smart PTZ dome cams

Hikvision launches 960H smart PTZ dome cams

Editor / Provider: Hikvision | Updated: 11/20/2013 | Article type: Security 50

Hikvision recently introduced two smart analog PTZ domes (the DS-2AF7268 and DS-2AF7264, respectively) which both incorporate a 960H image sensor to capture superior images at a horizontal resolution of 700TVL. This 960H image sensor presents a leap in current analog surveillance performance and provides a 36% resolution improvement when compared to 4CIF. Utilizing these PTZ domes with Hikvision 960H embedded DVRs allows users to experience highly-detailed images and also provides insurance against security risks such as theft and burglary.

These two PTZ domes provide enhanced IR illuminators and offer up-to 150m clear visibility in low or zero lighting conditions. Digital WDR and 3D DNR are also supported to improve image sharpness, and provide a more accurate color reproduction in variable lighting environments.

Smart Tracking
Engineered with a smart tracking function, both domes are able to detect a moving object and track it within the camera's area of coverage without fault. Moreover, this smart tracking technology ensures the target always stays centered in the middle of the picture during tracking. This greatly increases the effectiveness of a video surveillance system, and is especially apt in locations where the presence of people or vehicles requires special attention (such as parking lots, streets, residential communities, schools, etc.).

Speed Dome with Wiper
Hikvision's dome housing can be ordered with a wiper to automatically clean the lens when exposed to rain, snow, or dusty environments. As such, image clarity is insured, while maintenance costs are minimized based on the elimination of onsite cleaning.

Both PTZ domes provide a maximum pan speed of 160°/s and a maximum tilt speed of 120°/s. The DS-2AF7268 offers a 36x optical zoom, while the DS-2AF7264 offers a 23x to efficiently zoom onto objects of interest. Additionally, a maximum of 256 camera target preset points can be programmed for surveillance, while users can also define 8 automatic patrols and up-to 32 presets per patrol.

Rounding out this benefit portfolio, Hikvision also offers another two 5” Smart PTZ Dome Cameras: the DS-2AF5268 and DS-2AF5264. While these two models do not support IR capability or a wiper function, they do offer a much faster pan/tilt speed (the DS-2AF5268 features a 540°/s pan preset speed and the DS-2AF5264 features a 400°/s tilt preset speed). Both models are excellent options in a solution requiring PTZ functionality.
