Arecont Vision 5MP compact camera captures images of speeding vehicles

Arecont Vision 5MP compact camera captures images of speeding vehicles

Editor / Provider: Arecont Vision | Updated: 3/20/2015 | Article type: Infrastructure

CUSTOMER
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina and the second-largest metropolitan area in South America. The city of Buenos Aires is an autonomous district, and the separate province of Buenos Aires is the largest and most populous province in Argentina.

CHALLENGE
The local governments in Argentina needed a portable mobile solution to monitor and document speed limit violations.

MEGAPIXEL SOLUTION
In a unique integrated solution, Arecont Vision 5-megapixel cameras are used in conjunction with a radar speed gun. The camera's small size and excellent performance provided the perfect imaging solution for this specialized law enforcement application.

The system consists of a radar speed gun, a central processing unit (CPU) module, an Arecont Vision AV5115 5-megapixel camera and a laptop computer for programming and monitoring. The CPU controls and administers all functions of the system. The Arecont Vision camera connects to the CPU through an Ethernet connection, and the radar pistol communicates with the CPU via an RS-232 port. When measuring a vehicle's speed, the CPU analyzes whether the speed is in excess of the speed limit. If it is, the Arecont Vision camera takes a high-resolution digital image of the vehicle for license plate identification and fine processing. The information is then correlated to Argentina's vehicle registration database and the speed, operator's name, speed limit and location are superimposed on the picture and saved in memory on an SD card housed in the unit. A single SD card can store more than 1,000 files. Local monitoring is performed using a laptop computer, which is connected using a Wi-Fi network. The system also communicates via Wi-Fi to a desktop computer for remote monitoring.

The AV5115 camera is part of Arecont Vision's MegaVideo® Compact series of IP cameras. It features H.264/MJPEG dual encoding and up to 32-times the resolution of a VGA camera. Forty of the radar/video speed gun units were built, and the first units have been working uninterrupted since 2009.

The handheld radar speed gun system was designed and installed by Dyna Group, Buenos Aires, a customer-oriented company providing high-quality technical and environmental engineering services to its clients, according to Hector H. Zino, manager. Dyna Group's goal is to exceed every client's expectations with outstanding customer service, increased flexibility and greater value, thus optimizing system functionality and improving operation efficiency. Dyna Group specified the Arecont Vision camera for the radar speed gun application in Buenos Aires.

MEGAPIXEL BENEFITS
The high resolution of the Arecont Vision camera provides clear images for identification and the ability to read license plates. Megapixel-quality images include greater detail at an affordable price. Value drives the market, and less-expensive systems with higher resolution and better system performance provide the best value. During the design phase, several solutions were tried, but the Arecont Vision camera was chosen as the preferred solution because of performance, small size and easy operation. The system has been well received because of the high-resolution of the images and the small size of the complete device.

Better images ensure more revenue from speeding fines, which yields return on investment (ROI) for the new system. The radar/video guns have more than paid for themselves based on increased safety and collection of speeding fines. In one block in Buenos Aires, for example, 98 vehicles in one hour were each fined up to $480 for speeding violations. In another example, there were approximately 200 tickets issued in a single four-hour shift. Residents can request police to provide speed controls in their neighborhoods based on concerns about the safety of pedestrians.

“The solution has worked well, and Arecont Vision has been responsive to the customer's needs,” says Mr. Zino of Dyna Group. “The Arecont Vision megapixel camera provides a very compact and lightweight product at a reasonable price.”

LaSalle Plaza installs Avigilon HD solution to monitor building traffic and ensure tenant safety

LaSalle Plaza installs Avigilon HD solution to monitor building traffic and ensure tenant safety

Editor / Provider: Avigilon | Updated: 3/18/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Built in 1991, LaSalle Plaza is a 30-story office tower in the heart of Minneapolis' bustling theater district. A 600,000 square foot building that spans an entire city block, LaSalle Plaza is home to many businesses as well as retail locations and restaurants that cater to the city's theater crowd.

Connected by a seven-mile long skyway to an apartment building, the YMCA, a theater and the Target head office, LaSalle Plaza accommodates more than 16,000 people every day; making patron safety and security a challenge.

Because the building's aging analog surveillance system was unable to capture clear image detail, was difficult to use and costly to maintain, LaSalle Plaza upgraded its entire system to the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system for its exceptional image clarity and advanced management features that improve investigations and response times to ultimately boost overall security.

Open until 3:00 a.m. for restaurant and theater-goers, and again at 6:00 a.m. to welcome the building's workforce, LaSalle Plaza is not a typical office tower. “LaSalle Plaza presents unique challenges from a security perspective because of its hours, retail locations and Skyway; which attract a range of patrons and a lot of traffic,” explained Kelly Lentz, general manager at LaSalle Plaza, part of the Zeller Realty Group.

“With Avigilon's excellent image quality, we can easily identify intruders, watch them as they move through the building and involve the police if a problem arises,” explained Lentz. “The picture quality is so good that we know we will always be able to clearly identify an individual.”

According to Lentz, the real business benefit that Avigilon delivers is the ability to better move unwelcome people through the building to keep tenants safe. “With the best tools at their disposal, security officers can monitor our entire building much more effectively than before for a higher sense of security,” concluded Lentz.

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by VIVOTEK | Updated: 4/6/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Building an impermeable security infrastructure for protecting consumers and employees
The EDEKA Group is one of Germany's most successful companies, with success attributed to the seamless collaboration between the three levels of the Group - management, wholesale, and retail. EDEKA Voth in Lemgo is one branch among several EDEKA's retailers. EDEKA HQ is located in Hamburg, where strategies are formulated to create and maintain smooth IT structures throughout the entire organization. The wholesale level, comprising seven regional wholesale businesses, is to supply top-quality goods to 4,000 subsidiary, self-employed retailers nationwide, and support management in terms of distribution and expansion. The retailers provide not only top-class products, but also friendly and professional customer service. The EDEKA Voth management acknowledges that the security plays a crucial role influencing the stability and sustainability of operations. From this aspect, EDEKA Voth places considerable effort in building an impermeable security infrastructure for protecting consumers and employees. EDEKA Voth has reviewed its security options in 2013.

A comprehensive solution is designed for encompassing the entire branch
SECOMP, a German-based distributor of VIVOTEK products, is widely known in the industrial, commercial, and institutional sectors for providing quality services in Germany. Therefore, SECOMP was commissioned to revamp the security system in EDEKA Voth. Following careful planning and cooperation with CNS in Lemgo, a comprehensive solution was designed that encompassed both indoor and outdoor surveillance throughout the entire complex. Twenty-four VIVOTEK's cameras were installed throughout the complex, comprising a combination of FD8166, FD8335H, IP7361, and MD7560.

FD8166, regarding its ultra-mini size, low-profile design and the excellent quality, was specifically selected for monitoring grocery aisle activity. Twenty FD8166 cameras, one between two aisles, were installed throughout the complex. This model features a 2-megapixel CMOS sensor capable of capturing 1920x1080 resolution video at 15 FPS. Additionally, the camera supports the industrial-standard H.264 compression technology, which drastically reduces file size and conserves network bandwidth. This technology is essential in this context due to the number of cameras installed.

The fixed dome network camera FD8335H, featuring WDR Pro, removable IR-cut filter, and built-in IR illuminators, was selected for monitoring back door activity around the clock. Designed with 1-megapixel CMOS sensor, the camera is capable of capturing 720p HD at 30 FPS. Additionally, the IK10- and IP66-rated housing renders this model ideal for outdoor applications.

The bullet style IP7361 was selected to monitor the warehouse loading area. The IP7361 is equipped with a 2-megapixel CMOS sensor (1600x1200) with a 6 to 9 mm vari-focal, auto-iris lens that enables the camera to deliver extremely detailed images at 6 times the coverage of conventional VGA cameras without sacrificing storage space or network bandwidth. Similar to the FD8335H model, the IP7361 features the IP66-rated housing, removable IR-cut filter, and built-in IR illuminators, making this model perfect for outdoor surveillance.

For the entrance of the complex, fixed dome network camera MD7560 was opted. The MD7560 features an advanced 2-megapixel CMOS sensor capable of capturing 1600x1200 resolution video. It also supports a wide-angle lens, making this camera ideal for areas with high volumes of activity, such as store entrances. The IP67-rated tamper- and vandal-proof housing further increases the robustness of the camera, enabling it to withstand the harshest environmental conditions.

Achievement: Fully satisfaction with the performance and highly confidence in future cooperation
Overall stringency in surveillance has increased significantly since the employment of the solution in November 2013 while maintaining the ease of use and seamless operations. The customer is fully satisfied with the performance of the solution and expresses confidence in future collaboration.

The strategic advantages of reinforcing the security of an organization from the bottom of the structural pyramid are countless. At a consumer level, the tangible sense of security throughout the shopping experience elevates consumers' loyalty, satisfaction, and repurchase intention, generating positive word-of-mouth. At a management level, a sound security infrastructure frees decision-makers to tackle other aspects of management, formulating decisions with greater value for the company. At an organizational level, consumers' positive word-of-mouth and managers' favorable decisions created in the previous levels reinforce investor confidence in the organization, ultimately increasing market size. Therefore, the state-of-the-art solutions developed by VIVOTEK not only explicitly satisfy security and surveillance demands, but also implicitly promote organizational progress.

Sony IP cameras chosen by Virsig in New York City Marathon

Sony IP cameras chosen by Virsig in New York City Marathon

Editor / Provider: Sony | Updated: 3/12/2015 | Article type: Commercial Markets

The New York City Marathon is a tradition held sacred not only by New Yorkers, but by people from around the globe who come to take part in the yearly event. Participants from more than 130 countries vie for a select number of spots to run the 26.2 mile course. Meanwhile, the whole city unites as spectators to cheer on those undertaking one of the most grueling feats of physical stamina and endurance, which in 2014 took an average of 4 hours and 35 minutes to complete.

The 2014 TCS New York City Marathon — held November 2, 2014 — was completed by more than 50,000 runners who ran through all five boroughs ending in the scenic embrace of Central Park. Furthermore, over one million spectators crowded the length of the course for hours to cheer on runners on.

When large crowds gather in confined areas for many hours, the topic naturally turns to security. As a result of this spotlight on safety issues at large-scale and widespread events, like a marathon, a comprehensive plan is put in place to keep the race runners and spectators secure. This year, the New York Road Runners (NYRR), the running club who organizes the annual race and their medical team chose New York City-based networked technology and systems integrator, Virsig, LLC to spearhead and execute their security plans, and to provide technological assistance and direction to increase safety.

Sony was chosen by Virsig to be the IP camera of choice to securely monitor the world's largest marathon, along with support from several other global technology partners including: Firetide, Inc.—a Division of UNICOM Global; Milestone Systems and Network Video Technologies. Sony's cameras were required to perform multiple functions ranging from situational awareness at all entrances and exits, to threat assessment, and personnel management. In excess of 50 Sony security cameras were installed along the route, including SNC-HM662, SNC-XM632, SNC-WR632C, SNC-CH260 and SNC-CH280; which includes fixed cameras with on-board video analytics, dome, bullet, 360 degree and pan-tilt-zoom style cameras.

“To help ensure the safety of the biggest marathon in the world is no small task. Sony is pleased that we were able to be an integral part of the security process for the second year in a row,” said Phil Coppola, Northeast Security Manager, Sony Electronics' Security Systems Division. “Virsig worked day and night to get their system up and running and they had to contend with some terrible weather leading up to the race. With their experience in wireless transmission and video surveillance system design and installation, Virsig allowed the Sony cameras to operate to their fullest potential and play a pivotal role in helping to secure the marathon participants and spectators.”

Although the marathon takes place during the day, the setup occurs over the course of several preceding day, and Sony's cameras needed to be able to perform reliably during daytime and nighttime hours. The Sony high-definition bullet cameras that were used come equipped with infrared illuminators that provided race coordinators with uninterrupted views, regardless of lighting conditions.

Sony's IPELA ENGINE security cameras, which were also installed at the 2013 New York City Marathon, were coordinated through Milestone Systems XProtect Corporate, a powerful IP video management software (VMS) designed for large-scale and high-security deployments. Meanwhile, Sony's new, ultra wide dynamic range IP surveillance cameras were placed throughout the last mile of the race in Central Park and around the finish line.

The innovative SNC-XM632 IPELA ENGINE camera was used in multiple locations for a broad overview of the areas around the entrance and exit points at the race. The camera has a 113-degree wide angle field-of-view and a hi-res, full HD imager, allowing for images that were far more detailed and expansive than anything used in the past.

Additionally, the marathon coordinators required a camera that would provide situational awareness to monitor the activities inside the emergency and medical tents. Because these were temporary structures, they were unable to take advantage of multiple camera views. For those areas, the SNC-HM662, a 5MP camera capable of providing 360 degree views from a single sensor, was selected. From this one camera, race organizers were able to know exactly what was going on in each tent, at all times.

 

“We selected Sony for multiple reasons; first and foremost because of the quality of the picture, and secondly because of the ease of installation,” said Glenn Taylor, Executive Director, Virsig. “We have a very short window to get the equipment up and running and we don't have a lot of direct access to the cameras during the actual marathon. This is particularly why we relied on the photo framing and auto focus that's built into the electronics of the Sony camera.”

The weather leading up to the marathon was very challenging, including freezing cold temperatures and rain, so it was important for Virsig to use cameras that were durable, reliable and self-sufficient. Sony's security cameras automatically adjust to meet requirements in lighting and environment, and hold up to the unpredictable demands of the weather. This ensures that race managers can deal with unforeseen circumstances and medical emergencies and rest assured that the cameras will perform their functions without the attention of a team.

The casual observer may not have noticed Sony's cameras or seen them on the front lines of the marathon, but according to all involved, it was a job well done. Runners were able to focus on their exhausting task while race organizers could concentrate on logistical issues and medical matters, without worrying themselves with the overall safety. Sony's end goal of maintaining a secure and worry-free environment for the over one million people involved in the world's largest race was met, for the second year in a row.

Urmet's 2-Voice System chosen for Victorian restoration project

Urmet's 2-Voice System chosen for Victorian restoration project

Editor / Provider: Urmet | Updated: 3/12/2015 | Article type: Residential & Consumer

Developers, Weston Homes, have chosen Urmet's 2-Voice, 2-Wire system for Preston Hall, a prestigious Victorian restoration project in Aylesford, Kent. Preston Hall is a Grade II-listed Victorian mansion built in the Jacobean style, consisting of 36 luxurious and unique one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments, houses, and villas. To restore and refurbish this magnificent property, the developers needed a system that utilised the existing cabling throughout the building, while providing the residents with a modern-day system using the latest door entry technology.

Urmet supplied its 2-Voice system providing connectivity to the 22 apartments within the main core of the building. The apartments are accessed via 2 entrances, each with an Elekta Glass video entry panel mounted within an H-design post. The impressive main entrance to the building required a bespoke solution to mount these panels, so Urmet set about fabricating a super-slim stainless steel H-design pedestrian post to complement the finish the client wanted.

A sensor built into Elekta glass panel detects the presence of a visitor, triggering the soft-start LED illumination of the icons on the black glass keypad and the 3.5” LCD colour display, providing users with instructions on how to make a call. Aiko hands-free 4.3” soft-touch technology DDA-compliant colour video monitors were supplied for the fit-out in each apartment.

Residents at the newly refurbished building will now benefit from all the advanced features that Urmet's 2-wire system has to offer, including being able to integrate video surveillance. Up to five analogue CCTV cameras can be integrated into a single system and can be monitored from the internal video door phone within each apartment.

2-Voice connects with a twisted pair of a Cat5 cable with no additional twin cable for power, meaning it relies on very little control equipment. Simply using two wires from the entry panel up to the apartment station makes it fast and easy to install and perfect for renovation projects.

The Elekta Glass digital video entry panel, previously only available as an IP PoE panel, is now available for the 2-Voice system, which is suitable for installations ranging from small and medium blocks of flats to large-scale residential developments.

Mark Hagger, Urmet's Sales and Marketing Director, commented, “We are very pleased to have worked on such an historic building that was perfect for Urmet's 2-wire system. Previously, the range of compatible panels we could offer on our 2-wire system was limited, but now we're pleased to have added both Elekta Glass and Elekta Steel digital panels to this system, which is already proving very popular among our clients.”

Synectics partners with Vemotion Technology

Synectics partners with Vemotion Technology

Editor / Provider: Synectics | Updated: 3/12/2015 | Article type: Security 50

Synectics' Synergy command and control platform - including Synergy 3 - is now fully integrated with Vemotion's video acquisition and streaming solutions.

The announcement is good news for councils and other public space bodies looking to benefit from wireless and deployable surveillance solutions that were previously impossible or costly to implement due to non-existent or poor fibre network provision.

Vemotion's encoding and streaming products enable live video streams to be transmitted wirelessly from surveillance cameras over any network, without the need for costly infrastructure or equipment. The technology also allows recorded footage to be transmitted from remote devices, whether hard-wired or mobile; ideal for councils and agencies in need of temporary or re-deployable solutions to extend and enhance their public space surveillance networks.

Synectics has extensive experience in developing and delivering security solutions for public space applications. Its surveillance systems, many of which incorporate Synectics' proven command and control platform Synergy, are already deployed in towns and cities throughout the UK.

The Vemotion integration enables any council, police force or other public body using Synergy, to view and control Vemotion connected devices - alongside data from other third party systems - within a single environment. This removes the need for multiple systems and improves overall ‘system visibility' for more efficient and effective monitoring and control.

David Aindow, Product and Technology Director at Synectics, said: “Our surveillance solutions are developed with open architecture as the starting point, not an afterthought. We know how important flexibility and interoperability are to our customers and are pleased to add integration with Vemotion's advanced cellular technology to our portfolio.

“Re-deployable cameras that can be moved to address ‘hot spot' problem areas are increasingly viable solutions, as is the ability to view footage from remote locations and mobile deployments. Against a backdrop of budget cuts, achieving these objectives where the right infrastructure is not already in place is tough. Vemotion solutions provide an ideal and cost effective answer to this issue and through integration with Synergy, operators can capitalize on this while still being able to monitor and control all data within a single environment.”

Wakefield council is one of the first to benefit from the integration. It identified hot spot areas not covered by the existing fibre network and is using Vemotion to facilitate wireless rapid deployment in these target locations, with transmissions feeding directly into its Synergy platform.

The Synergy/Vemotion integration is also enabling the council to look at other opportunities such as analyzing traffic flow and identifying issues which can then be used to advise Wakefield motorists via traffic management notices.

Stewart McCone, Managing Director of Vemotion, said: “Partnerships with globally recognized, like-minded, forward thinking organizations such as Synectics are important to us, particularly where it helps make life easier for our customers. Integration with Synergy means that our customers like Wakefield MDC can benefit from true system flexibility that can be managed within a single, industry-leading platform.”
