Dahua HD IP solution secures Morocco phosphate manufacturer

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 4/24/2014 | Article type: Security 50

OCP group has recently upgraded its video surveillance system with Dahua HD IP solution.OCP group with derivatives market headquarter in Morocco, has been a key player in international phosphate market since its founding in 1920. It is world's largest exporter of phosphate rock and phosphoric acid as well as one of the world's major producers of fertilizer. Its production site had been equipped with analog system for several years, however, the system failed to give useful information after an incident. Thus, OCP group decided to level up their security by adding Dahua HD IP solution as a complementary as well as replacing its old DVRs.

Depending on customers' needs, clear monitoring image was the top priority; with OCP's wide production site, it is of great importance to deploy both indoor and outdoor cameras, Moreover, since the manufacturing base was secured by different branding devices, product compatibility becomes a key issue. Under professional suggestion of COUNTRY TECH, Dahua's local distributor, OCP group decided to take Dahua speed domes (SD6980-HN & SD6582A-HN), NVRs (NVR3216) and DVRs (DVR0804HF-L) to secure their assets.

Dahua 1.3/2-megapixel network speed domes provide real-time recording at high definitions with maximum 100-meterIR distance, ensuring a wide visual range at night as well as other poor-lighting conditions; domes' ingress protection rating is up to IP67 and IK10 to against harsh weathers. NVR3216 supports maximum 120fps@1080P recording and accommodates two HDDs for data storage.

“We put quality first when selecting products,” said Afaf RAIS, Sales Manager of COUNTRY TECH. “Partnering with Dahua for several years made us confident about the products and services they provide; meanwhile, all that are based on a reasonable price. During the project, Dahua showed professionalism and offered very good support and services.”

“Phosphate is the economic pillar in Morocco, we are proud that our solution and products could be applied to secure it,” said William Zhou, Sales Director of Latin America and Africa at Dahua Technology. “Global demand for high definition solution continues to grow, take Africa as an example, in recently years, we have seen more and more projects asking for IP solutions, and thus we will work more on this and bring more region-oriented products and solutions to the market.”

Synectics unveils COEX TriMode camera range

Synectics unveils COEX TriMode camera range

Editor / Provider: Synectics | Updated: 4/24/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Synectics has launched a new range of COEX TriMode camera stations which offer three light-condition operating modes in one unit, for greater operational flexibility and image clarity in all possible light conditions.

The supplier of advanced surveillance solutions to the global oil & gas and marine sectors, has designed the new low voltage, lightweight and compact units to be more adaptive to specific conditions by enabling seamless switching between colour, mono and thermal imaging at the touch of a button.

This makes the TriMode ideal for protecting onshore or at-sea critical marine, and oil and gas assets - such as FPSOs, drilling stations/platforms, pipelines or LNG carriers - where weather, light conditions and overall visibility can fluctuate rapidly between extremes. Day or night, the technology means that exceptional image quality is guaranteed through smoke, solar glare, ice, mist, torrential rain, fog or even complete darkness.

The corrosion resistant COEX TriMode camera stations, suitable for IP or fibre applications, are ideal for both hazardous and operational areas.

Certified to international standards and tested to withstand shock, vibration and explosion impact, they also offer absolute positioning integration. This facility enables operators to capture high quality images, with accurate position data, of approaching vehicles, vessels or human intruders up to 10km away, even in difficult visual conditions and - in the case of at-sea applications - irrespective of ship pitch.

Darren Alder, Engineering Director at Synectics, said: "From navigating through dense fog or detecting hazardous ice flow at-sea, through to monitoring environmental impact or identifying potential security/site safety threats onshore, the COEX TriMode guarantees dependable and meaningful image capture."

The lightweight and durable camera stations, with continuous rotation pan and tilt capabilities and continuous zoom, feature a pre-heat mode for safe start-up in sub-zero conditions, but can also operate in temperatures up to +60 degrees C. All models also incorporate a virtually indestructible gearbox with backlash eliminating technology to ensure smooth, proportional speed control.

MOBOTIX supports UK Morrison Supermarkets upgrades surveillance

MOBOTIX supports UK Morrison Supermarkets upgrades surveillance

Editor / Provider: MOBOTIX | Updated: 4/23/2014 | Article type: Security 50

MOBOTIX, a manufacturer of digital high-resolution and network-based video security systems has released details of a project at Wm Morrison Supermarkets that is helping to secure access and reduce management complexity across 40 critical sites supporting the retailers “farm to fork” business strategy.

Wm Morrison Supermarkets is a major UK food retailer with over 500 stores across Britain and subsidiaries including Farmers Boy, a manufacturer and distributor of food products; Woodhead Bros, a meat processing business; FlowerWorld, a wholesale flower business and other business interests including multi-channel online retailing.

The company prides itself on its hands on approach to the food distribution chain and in 2008, the newly appointed Data Centre Services Manager, Darryl Shears, began a program to strengthen the resilience and security around its critical IT infrastructure as part of a wider software migration from legacy systems to a unified Oracle based platform.

“We have sites that range from northern Scotland, to Bridgwater in the south west and Sittingbourne in the south east and managing this estate from a centralised team in Bradford is a logistics challenge,” explains Shears, “We need to be able to monitor key comms rooms and IT equipment remotely both proactively to stop any issues from escalating and to react quickly to ensure any problems are dealt with effectively.”

To this end, Morrisons decided upon a strategy to upgrade each of these vital IT and comms rooms with environmental monitoring, remote surveillance and remote access control technology. With a requirement for an ultra-reliable, easy to manage yet flexible system, the firm turned to Express Data, a trusted and long serving technical adviser and installation specialist for assistance.

Following an extensive evaluation programme and based on a number of strong reference site examples, the supermarket group selected a solution including MOBOTIX CCTV cameras, Panduit environmental monitoring and access control technology. “The MOBOTIX solution, especially the hemispheric technology allows us to use just one or two cameras to cover single or multiple rooms with the resolution and reliability we required,” explains Shears, “In addition, the built-in flash storage support means that we can still record the site even if we have a network connectivity issue.”

The team based in Bradford can use the MOBOTIX cameras to view anybody requiring access to a secure room and remotely open doors and monitor any activity within the room. The system has the option for fully bi-directional audio and requires only 5W per camera which aligns with the company's stated aim to use low energy technologies across its operations.

Over the last 24 months, Express Data has worked with Shears and his team to implement upgrades at an additional 11 sites and created a standard blueprint for the resilience and security at each of the critical sites.

The build includes power redundancy and best practice access procedures with a full visual audit trail. In total, the supermarket has deployed around 140 cameras and, “…as we roll out new sites or make any changes, we now see MOBOTIX as part of our standard build and the system has proven extremely reliable while seamlessly integrating into our other operational systems and processes.”

Secutech ASEAN, formerly known as Secutech Thailand, is officially scheduled to take place from 26 – 28 November 2014 at Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC). Known as Thailand's leading and largest professional event for the security as well as fire and safety industries, Secutech ASEAN 2014 is expecting to welcome over 150 exhibitors, showcasing the latest innovations in security technology for government, commercial as well as private use.

Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd (MFNE), and its new partner, Asian Exhibition Services (AES) Ltd will be organising the 2014 show. Commenting on this new partnership, Mr John Shi, General Manager for Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd said: “It gives me great pleasure in announcing our new partnership with Asian Exhibition Services Ltd. The firm is well-known for their expertise in managing industrial-based trade fairs in Asia. With its headquarters in Bangkok plus an expansive network in the region, AES possesses the expertise in bringing professionals from the private sector and granting support from government bodies. Our show is quickly proving itself to be an invaluable component to the growth of Thailand's security market.”

Commenting on the local market, Mr David Aitken, Managing Director of Asian Exhibition Services (AES) Ltd added: “The Thai government recently announced its plans to invest USD 70 billion in regional infrastructure development, which is expected to aid the commercial and residential construction boom, starting from the last quarter of 2014. Under this initiative, extensive opportunities will be created for Thailand's professional security industry, and will further consolidate its status as the largest security market in Southeast Asia. I believe attendees to our next edition will not only find a wealth of next generation solutions, but also have a chance to make a number of valuable industry contacts.”

 Milestone XProtect  provides Finnish schools and harbor with full-range protection

Milestone XProtect provides Finnish schools and harbor with full-range protection

Editor / Provider: Milestone Systems | Updated: 4/22/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

“Installing Milestone XProtect has done the trick. We have reduced the cost of vandalism by approximately €50,000 (around $69,054) per year. Now we have practically no costs in regards to vandalism. What originated as a need for general security has evolved: One of the main benefits of our solution is the broad usage of it.” - Eero Polonen, Technical Manager, Kontiolahti Municipality.

The Challenge:
Before installing Milestone XProtect software, Kontiolahti Municipality was subjected to extensive vandalism at schools and in the harbor. The harbor was especially plagued by theft of boat motors and oil, littering and other destructive activities that the old security system was not equipped to handle.

 

The Solution:
Installing Milestone Partner Hallstrom designed and implemented an efficient solution with Milestone XProtect Professional and XProtect Essential to manage 200 AXIS, Sony, Vivotek and Mobotix cameras. The cameras are installed throughout the entire municipality at hospitals, sports fields, harbors and schools. Hallstrom integrated Blackbox Light Control System, which has enabled the municipality to use XProtect Smart Client and Milestone Mobile to control not only cameras, but also all public lighting systems. Hallstrom set up the users with the XProtect Smart Client Finnish language interface, which significantly eases day-to-day operations for Kontiolahti Municipality.

The Advantages:
The Milestone XProtect solution has provided Kontiolahti with increased safety and has led to a significant reduction in vandalism saving around USD69,054 a year. The municipality can easily expand their security solution to more uses with the Milestone open platform.

Large yearly savings from reduced vandalism thanks to Milestone
The Milestone surveillance solution is installed all over Kontiolahti Municipality for many purposes, including keeping the citizens of Kontiolahti safe in public: “The general opinion in the population is that security has increased after we have installed the new solution,” states Eero Polonen, Technical Manager at Kontiolahti Municipality. The estimated savings are €50,000 a year due to reduced vandalism.

“Before we installed Milestone XProtect we were experiencing a lot of vandalism at schools in our area and at the harbor, where fuel and motors from the boats were frequently being stolen. That was the reason why we decided to install a new security system: to reduce the destruction of our facilities and further increase safety for our population,” states Polonen.

“A new security system was badly needed since the previous one was both outdated and lacked user-friendliness” relates Polonen.

To find a better solution to secure the municipality, Eero Polonen teamed up with Milestone Partner through seven years, Hallstrom LTD Partnership. Hqllstrom is a Finnish expert in the fields of ICT and security, and is one of the leading suppliers of IP-based surveillance solutions in Finland. Their effective solution with Milestone XProtect Professional and XProtect Essential has significantly made a difference in helping the municipality with their problems.

“We chose Milestone XProtect because the product is reliable and stable, which is very important for us. Moreover, the Milestone solution is scalable, so it can be used in everything from small systems to very large systems. That is a big advantage,” says Polonen.

Kontiolahti gets additional benefits from using open platform software
Besides helping the municipality reduce vandalism, the video monitoring solution is also used to secure the personal safety of citizens living in elderly homes and for checking conditions at sports venues: “With Milestone Mobile we remotely check the condition of a sports field to plan maintenance, for example,” says Polonen. The solution has also proven to be beneficial during the long cold winters: “In winter the staff can remotely check how much snow falls to decide how often they have to plow ice away from roads and parking places.”

 The integration benefits of open platform
Kontiolahti Municipality sees many advantages of the Milestone open platform that makes it easy to integrate with third-party systems.

“Hallstrom has integrated XProtect with the Blackbox Light Control System. This allows us to control the lights at different locations directly from the XProtect Smart Client interface,” says Polonen. “A big plus in regards to the XProtect Smart Client is that it has been translated to Finnish. That contributes to making the clients easy to use. In general, I think the XProtect Smart Client is very intuitive and easy to manage and the fact that we can use the same client for all platforms is an extra plus.”

It was the system integrator Hallstrom who recommended Kontiolahti to go with the Milestone solution, and Hallstrom has thoroughly trained each of the users in how to use the solution. “We have received very good support from Hallstrom who has quickly responded to our questions and inquiries throughout the purchasing, installation and support process,” concludes Eero Polonen and adds that the municipality is planning on expanding the solution to cover even more institutions.

Axis announces 4K resolution bullet camera P1428-E

Axis announces 4K resolution bullet camera P1428-E

Editor / Provider: Axis | Updated: 4/22/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Axis Communications, the world supplier in network video, announces its first 4K resolution camera, AXIS P1428-E. The 4K standard is defined and approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and offers a video resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 frames per second.

The AXIS P1428-E Network Camera is the top-of-the-line model in the compact AXIS P14 Series, designed for outdoor and demanding indoor environments. The AXIS P14 Series consist of seven network camera models ranging from HDTV 1080p to 4K allowing customers to select the camera that best meets their specific requirements and budget, offering efficient and reliable video surveillance in any environment. The new AXIS P1428-E offers a number of value adding features such as remote zoom and focus, a built-in slot for micro SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards and I/O connectors for interfacing with external devices.

“Simply put, 4K offers four times the resolution of HDTV 1080p. It is an established industry standard both in motion picture production and for consumer displays with a dramatic pace of market penetration. Now it's time to make use of this new technology also in video surveillance,” says Regional Country Manager, Mr. Ivan Tjahjadi.

“An important factor in the development of this first Axis 4K camera was to bring the new industry standard into a product series intended to be implemented into practical use from day one. Initially, it is likely that most customers will be using a standard HDTV monitor. 4K makes it possible to enhance any portion of the screen without losing details. To manage bandwidth consumption, users can view the live video stream in HD 1080p and take advantage of 4K recordings for forensic purposes.”

Axis was among the very first companies to introduce HDTV network cameras in the surveillance market. The introduction of the 4K technology into our product portfolio is a natural step in the journey to respond to customer demand.

The AXIS P1428-E Network Camera with 4K resolution is planned to be available in Q3 2014 through Axis' distribution channels at a suggested retail price of $999.
