Editor / Provider: VIVOTEK | Updated: 12/18/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Matching State-of-the-Art Security with Style in Iran’s Capital.
The ancient city of Tehran has been rebuilt to reflect modern ideas and innovative designs many times throughout its history; however this constant evolution has always adhered to strict aesthetic standards. Continuing this spirit, VIVOTEK camera systems, offering the absolute latest in surveillance technology while maintaining stylish appearance, have become increasingly popular in this city of 8.3 million.

Located in the west of Tehran City, the brand new YAS Commercial Center was in need of an advanced and comprehensive surveillance system. It required cameras and connectivity solutions to cover a range of interior and exterior spaces, including parking areas, main corridors, entrances and exits, and other spaces, for protecting people inside or outside the Center. Pooya Fara Negar, distributor of VIVOTEK on this case, worked hard to come to a full understanding of the YAS Commercial Center’s needs, and provide a perfectly tailored IP-based security and surveillance system.

VIVOTEK Cameras for Complete Coverage – Inside and Out.
A total of 305 VIVOTEK cameras were installed across both the interior and exterior spaces of the YAS Commercial Center, ensuring complete coverage of all areas under any lighting or weather conditions, while maintaining a low profile and blending in with the stylish design of the center.

Tehran’s Environment: A Harsh Test for Technology – No Problem for VIVOTEK’s Cameras
Tehran’s climate, which may be unpredictably harsh at times with temperatures ranging from −17 °C to 43 °C, would test the mettle of any surveillance system. VIVOTEK’s IP8332 and SD8363E were chosen to meet this harsh challenge, and of course for their superior image quality in all lighting conditions. 82 IP8332s, a bullet-style network camera, were installed to cover parking areas. Incorporating a number of advanced features, such as a 1MP sensor enabling 1280x800 viewing resolution at a smooth 30 fps, a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators effective up to 15M for superior image quality around the clock, and an IP66-rated housing to withstand rain, dust and other environmental pollutants, the IP8332 is an ideal option for outdoor parking lot applications. 11 high performance SD8363E speed domes with 20x zoom lenses were also installed around building perimeters to ensure total coverage. The SD8363E features 1080p Full HD resolution, IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated housing, and real-time H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression.

Interior Spaces – Broad Coverage Requirements Met With Low Profile Solutions
For indoor environments such as corridors, foyers and communal areas, FD8137H, IP8131, FD8164 and FD8166 were selected and installed for their small sizes, quality design, and excellent image quality. The VIVOTEK FD8164 is an easy-to-use fixed dome network camera specifically designed for indoor security applications with a compact, stylish exterior. Designed with 2-Megapixel CMOS Sensor, FD8164 enables capturing high quality and high resolution video. VIVOTEK FD8166 is an extremely small fixed dome network camera. With installation as easy as one-two-three and Power over Ethernet functionality, setup time is less than 120 seconds, making installation quick and easy.

Achievement
William Ku, Vice President of VIVOTEK's International Business Division, further commented: “We’re very excited about the successful installation of this VIVOTEK system for the YAS Commercial Center. We at VIVOTEK are always happy to meet challenges and to exceed expectations, and we particularly enjoy working in the beautiful but challenging environment of Tehran as it gave our IP8332, with its weather and dust-proof housing a chance to prove its resilience.”

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.

Amthal Fire & Security is a top achiever at the Marlborough Science Academy

Amthal Fire & Security is a top achiever at the Marlborough Science Academy

Editor / Provider: Amthal Fire & Security | Updated: 12/17/2014 | Article type: Education

Amthal Fire & Security has upgraded the fire and security measures at The Marlborough Science Academy to feature high performance IP CCTV, access control and automatic fire detection systems to provide ultimate peace of mind for staff, pupils and visitors.

The Marlborough Science Academy, situated in St Albans, is a specialist science secondary school and sixth form, educating approximately 1,200 students and employing over 80 staff. The school is increasingly being used by the local community out of school hours and so the site required a general upgrade to its security and fire detection systems.

Amthal Fire & Security worked closely with the Estates Management team to provide a comprehensive security overview and offered a number of innovative ideas to ensure complete perimeter security and a smooth operating system throughout the Academy.

The electronic security solution specified, incorporated state of the art IP CCTV together with access control and automatic fire detection systems, all integrated into existing platforms. The structure was installed in just three weeks to ensure minimal disruption to learning timetables.

Says Chris Paice, Estates Manager at The Marlborough Science Academy: “The school is committed to offering staff, students and the wider local community a vibrant, happy and nurturing learning environment. So that we can do this as safely as possible, we ensure the fire and security systems, right from the entrance to the school and throughout the site, are all maintained to a high level.

“Amthal Fire & Security has consistently been highly professional and knowledgeable, going above and beyond the call of duty to provide a complete solution that was even installed at a much faster rate than we had scheduled.

We would not hesitate to recommend Amthal Fire & Security to any educational facility looking for guidance and expertise on all aspects of site security.”

Jamie Allam, Commercial Director of Amthal Fire & Security added: “The Government’s continued pledge towards the extended schools agenda means educational premises operate today on a much more ‘open’ nature with either full public access or permitted group access increasingly required.

“This places added pressures on fire and security measures to ensure even out of traditional school hours, the site is carefully monitored. Here, The Marlborough Science Academy has shown how working with a trusted brand as Amthal Fire & Security right from security specification throughout the process, can ensure a bespoke security system is created to operate with existing site technologies to keep disruption, cost and install times to a minimum.”

Independently owned, Amthal Fire & Security is dedicated to satisfying end user needs for security safety and convenience offering design, installation, service and remote monitoring of advanced electronic fire & security solutions, including intruder, Fire, Access and CCTV systems.

Amthal Fire & Security is accredited by the Security Systems and Alarm Inspection Board (SSAIB) United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) and British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE.)

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.

SilverNet wireless network solution provide the link for North Lincolnshire Council

SilverNet wireless network solution provide the link for North Lincolnshire Council

Editor / Provider: SilverNet | Updated: 12/11/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

When North Lincolnshire Council commissioned town centre specialists, Videcom Security to install a new public safety CCTV camera system in Winterton, the specification called for the images captured by the cameras to be transmitted without loss, to its central control room 28 Kilometres away in Scunthorpe.

Traditional transmission methods using leased fibre to transmit the cameras back to Scunthorpe was neither a practical option nor cost effective, so Videcom, recommended a secure wireless IP network solution manufactured by SilverNet.

Winterton is a small town with a population of 4,700 people. North Lincolnshire Council decided to fund the installation of the video surveillance system in order to deter and detect anti-social and criminal activity and by doing so, demonstrate its support of the local community and businesses by creating a safe town centre environment. 24/7 monitoring of live video, as well as access to recorded images, was considered to be essential if the video surveillance system was to be effective and it made sense for this to happen at an existing, fully equipped central control room in Scunthorpe.

“Having been responsible for maintaining the Scunthorpe town centre video surveillance system for the past eight years, we were very pleased to have been awarded the contract to provide the complete solution for this project,” said Bill Mead, Executive Director of Videcom Security. “We sourced full HD ONVIF LG fixed cameras and Redvision IP PTZ domes to provide coverage within Winterton Town Centre. Having very successfully worked with Silvernet on other projects, including Scunthorpe and Brigg, we had no hesitation in recommending the installation of MAX 95 and the new high capacity MAX 500 wireless transmission links, both of which are from the SilverNet PRO range, to achieve the objective of high speed IP transmission of video over the required 28 Kilometres.

Videcom Security has installed two new Silvernet MAX 500 links back-to-back, high up on the southern tower of the Humber Bridge, whilst seven pairs of MAX 95 links have been installed to collect the cameras locally at street level, producing a resilient solution with high capacity Backhaul transmission.

“Installing the SilverNet links on the south tower of the Humber Bridge was an interesting challenge, but overall, with careful planning and safety induction, it proved to be an uncomplicated installation process,” said Danny Harsley, Senior Network Engineer for Videcom Security. “The key to success for any project which involves wireless network transmission is to carry out a detailed site survey and work with the manufacturer to calculate the bandwidth requirements. As a result of doing this, we have been able to supply the client with a solution which utilises transmission equipment that is stable and has a huge throughput capacity.

“Silvernet are Videcom's preferred IP Wireless Partner. They provide us with excellent pro-active pre-sales and installation support, as well as first class training.”
