VIVOTEK and Hyperion Integrators provide IP surveillance systems to Ag Processing's ever-growing business

VIVOTEK and Hyperion Integrators provide IP surveillance systems to Ag Processing's ever-growing business

Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 4/25/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Ag Processing: Agricultural Cooperative at the Forefront of the Global Economy
Ag Processing Inc a cooperative (AGP) has more experiences than almost any other company in the procurement, processing, marketing, and transportation of oilseeds, grains, and related products. Since 1983, AGP has expanded not only its experience, but also the extent of its vast network which now includes 172 cooperatives representing more than 250,000 farmers across the Mid West United States, and additional regional cooperatives in the US and in Canada. AGP also serves as the largest Cooperative Soybean processing company in the world and is a leading provider of soybean meal and refined vegetable oils. Despite this complex network, AGP's mission is simple: help local producers earn more from their crops by linking them to markets around the globe.

The Challenge: Updating Old Analog Surveillance Systems
Agriculture is an old business, but AGP knows that the old ways of doing things aren't always the best. To continue its remarkable growth, AGP has always striven to find the latest techniques and technology in order to serve its producers and customers around the world. In 2012, AGP had to acknowledge that its old surveillance systems were no longer meeting the requirements of AGP's growing business. Throughout many of AGP's plants and facilities, analog video systems were still being used- the time was ripe to update to a digital, IP based system that could be developed and installed across all of AGP's many facilities. The acquisition of a new facility at Algona Iowa, presented an excellent opportunity to bring its surveillance system up to date, so AGP reached out to system integrators Hyperion, who set about looking for the best possible surveillance system to suit AGP's needs.

The Solution: VIVOTEK and AGP, a Growing Relationship
AGP's search for the best possible IP based video surveillance system let it to the VIVOTEK brand. Working closely with Hyperion, AGP developed a total-surveillance system for the Algona facility that incorporated high quality components delivered at a cost effective price. With this first step, the seed of a long term business relationship had been planted. Since 2012, AGP has installed VIVOTEK IP surveillance systems across twelve of its facilities, including its corporate office in Nebraska, four facilities in Iowa, two in Texas, and more across Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico and other locations. AGP, a cooperative that loves to see good things grow, now sees a future in which further VIVOTEK systems are added as opportunities arise.

Sandy Mason, Director of Labor Relations and Security for AGP, doesn't mind spilling the beans about his appreciation for VIVOTEK: “With the help of VIVOTEK and Hyperion, AGP has been able to build and maintain an ever growing system which we are able to control from a centralized location. VIVOTEK Management, Sales and Tech services are very attentive to our concerns and needs and understand that each of our locations has diverse, specific requirements.”

The right tools for the right Job - AGP Adopts a Wide Range of VIVOTEK's IP Cameras
Covering such a wide range of facilities across a network as large as AGP's, requires an equally wide range of surveillance solutions. One of the factors that led AGP to work with VIVOTEK, was VIVOTEK's diverse range of IP Network Cameras, which together allowed AGP to meet all of its surveillance needs. AGP has to date installed over 500 cameras across its facilities, and will continue to add further cameras. Cameras already installed include the SD8363E Speed-dome Network Camera with 20x Zoom and extreme weatherproofing; the SD8364E, with built in defog function; and the IP8362 network bullet camera with focus assist and WDR, allowing high quality and highly usable images even in difficult lighting conditions. Other models installed include the vandal-proof Day & Night fixed dome network camera FD8151V, and the low-profile, but-wide range fisheye FE8174 with 360 degree surround view and local dewarp to allow any section of an image to be viewed more naturally. VIVOTEK's latest innovative and market leading IR fisheye FE8181 and FE8181V were also installed in this project. Both cameras are furnished with a removable IR-cut filter for Day & Night functionality, and a built-in 10 meter IR Illuminator for uniform lighting across a 360° surround view, guaranteeing the image quality throughout the entire day. Few more cameras with superior image process capability and WDR Pro technology are also adopted, such as FD8137HV, FD8365EHV and IP8165HP.

Top of the Line Technology – Top Notch Support. VIVOTEK becomes AGP's Total IP Surveillance Provider
AGP's business is complicated. Its commitment to producers and customers around the world relies on the smooth cooperation of an enormous network of farmers and other cooperatives. In committing to upgrade its surveillance systems to the very latest technology, AGP needed to be sure that this wouldn't require time consuming installation or complicated ongoing maintenance. Thankfully, VIVOTEK's IP network camera systems are easy to install, and VIVOTEK's after sales service ensured that AGP was able to concentrate on growing its own business. Mr. Mason praised this aspect of VIVOTEK's service: “The biggest selling point VIVOTEK has, beyond its top-of-the-line-equipment, is its knowledgeable, service-oriented personnel who go above and beyond to insure we are happy with the product and that the product works as described. VIVOTEK has become a total IP Surveillance company for AGP.” Mr. Mason went on to say: “VIVOTEK's philosophy states Integrity, Care, and Innovation. VIVOTEK lives up to that philosophy and they are the company I refer to before any other.” So now, the cooperative can concentrate on fulfilling its mission and serving its customers and producers, secure in the knowledge that VIVOTEK is there, working alongside AGP and helping it fulfill this mission.

What kinds of projects need ccHDtv only?

What kinds of projects need ccHDtv only?

Editor / Provider: Jill Lai, a&s International | Updated: 4/17/2015 | Article type: Hot Topics

ccHDtv can be the only solution in some special occasions. For example, “If you want to have over 16 daisy-chain surveillance cameras on one coaxial cable, ccHDtv is the only solution. If you have a coaxial cable that is over 1,000-meters long in your installation site and you wish to use it to carry multiple full HD video, with 1080p at 30 frames per second, ccHDtv is the only solution. If your installation has room for only one coaxial cable but you want video, audio, control, and power simultaneously, ccHDtv is the only solution. If you have very poor cabling but you still want crystal clear HD video, ccHDtv is the only solution,” H.Y. Lin, President of ITE Technologies emphasized.

 

Current ccHDtv Projects at a Glance

1. A molding factory in China uses 16 ccHDtv cameras with the requirement for a transmission distance over 250 meters. The ccHDtv system provides better image quality, compared to IP video surveillance, with long-distance transmission.

2. A mechanical parts factory in China uses 16 ccHDtv cameras with the requirement for a transmission distance over 150 meters to replace its existing analog system.

3. A commercial building in Taiwan uses 16 ccHDtv cameras with the requirement for a transmission distance over 100 meters. 16 ccHDtv cameras are connected with four coaxial cables to replace its existing IP video surveillance system

4. An elementary school in Los Angeles, U.S., uses 12 ccHDtv cameras with 120-meter transmission distance. This is a new project with 12 ccHDtv cameras connected into one coaxial cable.

5. Bank of Shanghai in China uses 12 ccHDtv cameras with the requirement for a 120-meter transmission distance. Based on its existing analog video surveillance system, the bank added 12 extra ccHDtv cameras.

Unifying ccHDtv Suppliers Through an Alliance
With ccHDtv technologies and products getting more mature, ITE is also able to include more partners and suppliers of ccHDtv products. The company, then, established the ccHDtv Alliance this January to consolidate its marketing and sales strategies. ccHDtv standards and specifications were first announced to the market in Nov. 2012. Now, the company has over 10 qualified Taiwanese manufacturers that have adopted these specifications to develop their individual product series. “ITE provides allied companies with full support and services, including tests, certificates, and system integration, to help them manufacture a next-generation HD digital surveillance system with high quality and efficiency,” said Lin. Through the alliance, ITE hopes to bring ccHDtv to another new level, by collaborating and consolidating the resources from all the members, especially when exploring international markets.

ccHDtv now is still in the early technology introduction phase of its product life cycle. It needs more partnerships from security suppliers and recognition from global systems integrators in order to expand its market shares. ccHDtv provides systems integrators another option when implementing a video surveillance project, which is especially beneficial for both sales channels and end users alike. With this, we hope to see a significant growth for ccHDtv in the near future.

 

 

               

What makes ccHDtv unique is its “transmission technology,” according to Lin. Based on DTV technology, ccHDtv uses COFDM and radio frequency (RF) transmission technologies, which bring many benefits to the whole system, such as high noise resistance and bandwidth. He further explained that current IP video surveillance system use TCP/IP transmission technologies to transmit digital signals over Ethernet cables. Therefore, an IP video surveillance system usually has image latency problems. It goes without saying that these problems might get worse when transmitting 4K video. However, ccHDtv is different from IP because of the COFDM and RF transmission technologies...... Read On

ITE presents ccHDtv: future-proof technology for video surveillance

ITE presents ccHDtv: future-proof technology for video surveillance

Editor / Provider: Jill Lai, a&s International | Updated: 4/17/2015 | Article type: Hot Topics

4K resolution video coupled with advanced analytics is more than just buzz words — it will eventually become a future standard for security. In the meantime, thanks to the increasing adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in different industries, more and more high-quality video will be put on the Internet. Then, data storage and transmissions will soon become a major issue for a video surveillance system. H.Y. Lin, President of ITE Technologies, a well-known IC design company and the solution provider of ccHDtv, further emphasized, “The solution which is able to stand out in transmission technologies will define the best video surveillance system in the future.”

The company, therefore, invented the ccHDtv solution to address future transmission problems in a video surveillance system. ccHDtv is an industry-first, pure digital HD video surveillance solution, based on DTV (Digital TV) technology, and is able to transmit video and audio data over coaxial cables. ccHDtv leverages the AV transmission capability of DTV technology, featuring high noise resistance and high bandwidth, so it can easily overcome some common transmission challenges of current IP video surveillance and analog technologies.

Unique Transmission Technologies
What makes ccHDtv unique is its “transmission technology,” according to Lin. Based on DTV technology, ccHDtv uses COFDM and radio frequency (RF) transmission technologies, which bring many benefits to the whole system, such as high noise resistance and bandwidth. He further explained that current IP video surveillance system use TCP/IP transmission technologies to transmit digital signals over Ethernet cables. Therefore, an IP video surveillance system usually has image latency problems. It goes without saying that these problems might get worse when transmitting 4K video. However, ccHDtv is different from IP because of the COFDM and RF transmission technologies, which are able to provide high bandwidth at 31.6Mb/s per channel. Using one single coaxial cable, ccHDtv can connect 16 to 32 cameras in total and transmit signals between 500 meters and one kilometer without using amplifiers or repeaters. Most importantly, “ccHDtv is the one of the kind solution that can transmit 4K video simultaneously via multiple channels,” Lin highlighted.

Furthermore, because ccHDtv is a pure digital HD technology it can deliver superior image quality and high noise resistance, regardless of the quality of coaxial cables and the limitation of a 200-meter transmission distance, compared to other HD-over-coax solutions. Because most HD-over-coaxial technologies are analog based, they might encounter problems with bad image quality as the legacy coaxial cables age or image distortion when transmitting more than 200 meters, according to Lin. He also noted that re-cabling may cause hefty fees and problems in public safety, so users of HD analog products might need to take precautions of its future expansion. Instead, ccHDtv gives users ease of mind in the usage of coaxial cables.

Flexibility and Cost Effectiveness for Project Implementation
Due to ccHDtv's unique transmission technologies and the above-mentioned advantages, ccHDtv is suitable for middle- to large-scale projects. Lin further explained, “For a new-installation project, we hope to provide an alternative digital solution, besides IP. What ccHDtv focuses on is the project within eight to 16 cameras. In such a project scale, using ccHDtv system is very cost-effective in terms of the total cost of ownership, compared with using a total IP video surveillance system.” Again, using one single coaxial cable to connect multiple cameras saves high cost in cabling, and could be even more beneficial to a retrofit project, too.

On the other hand, ccHDtv could also be a complement for an existing IP video surveillance project too. According to the company, if the end users would like to expand their installation base, they can choose the ccHDtv solution. By using a ccHDtv ONVIF-compatible gateway, it can connect to their existing back-end IP systems, such as NVRs or CMS systems. “From our company's point of view, the system which utilizes both IP and ccHDtv technologies should be regarded as the most robust surveillance system. We should not put everything on the Internet, since it might cause problems in transmission and also bring future cyber security concerns. With this system, we provide a new concept of ‘IoT' and guarantee high performance and efficiency for a video surveillance system,” Lin explained.

Unique Selling Propositions for Projects
ccHDtv provides the security industry an alternative HD video surveillance solution, in addition to IP and analog technologies. However, what might intrigue systems integrators and installers the most might be its business potential. Lin explained that the security industry is now facing a major problem due to product standardization, which results in price competition and then low profit margin, even though the global market demand for security products is still increasing every year. In light of that, “since ccHDtv is so unique in its transmission technologies, we [ITE] ensure ccHDtv can provide systems integrators unique technologies for a project and most importantly, good profit margin,” said Lin.

In addition, particularly for some traditional “CCTV” installers, ccHDtv makes it very easy to install a camera without complex set-up procedures and cabling. So, even for an installer, who doesn't know much about network, they can still easily install ccHDtv products. “ccHDtv is a DTV technology, so it is very similar to a plug-and-play solution and provides a very flexible and cost-effective method to deploy a video surveillance system, which totally changes the mind-set of current project installation,” Lin emphasized.

This year, ccHDtv products are ready for market, with cameras, DVRs, gateways, and other accessories. “We will start the international marketing this year, targeting European market and then U.S., and Japan, who are the early adopters of DTV technologies in the world. We think those countries have a better understanding about DTV; therefore, ccHDtv would have a better opportunity there,” he added.

What Kinds of Projects Need ccHDtv Only?
ccHDtv can be the only solution in some special occasions. For example, “If you want to have over 16 daisy-chain surveillance cameras on one coaxial cable, ccHDtv is the only solution. If you have a coaxial cable that is over 1,000-meters ....... Read On
