Bosch installs video solution in Frankfurt skyscraper

Bosch installs video solution in Frankfurt skyscraper

Editor / Provider: Bosch | Updated: 6/17/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Bosch Security Systems has delivered and installed a comprehensive video surveillance solution in the MesseTurm, one of Frankfurt's most prominent high-rise buildings. The 63 story MesseTurm, which was designed by star ar-chitect Helmut Jahn and completed in 1990, is home to many international companies and chancelleries. Besides numerous offices, MesseTurm features a conference area and also houses several foreign consulates, resulting in very specific security requirements. The video solution, which was designed to protect tenants, visitors and suppliers alike, was implemented during normal operation without having to shut down any part of the building.

Design and implementation of the video system imposed some challenges on the planners, as the cameras should not impair the luxurious ambience of the building and had to be installed during normal operation. In those parts of the building to be monitored, Bosch installed 40 cameras, whose images are stored on a storage system featuring a capacity of 6.5 terabytes. In case of need, this allows the operator to view images that have been recorded several days ago.

In spite of the huge storage capacity, searching specific images is fast and easy. Intelligent video analysis and the forensic search feature of the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) greatly accelerate the search by using small sets of meta data instead of the much larger images themselves. The video solution is operated via 3 comfortable operator workstations, giving the security personnel a clear view of all protected areas around the clock and alerting them of any unusual events.

Morpho: Better ID solutions through facial recognition technologies

Morpho: Better ID solutions through facial recognition technologies

Editor / Provider: Morpho(Safran) | Updated: 6/17/2014 | Article type: Security 50

The idea behind facial recognition is to identify a person or authenticate their identity based on the morphological traits of their face. Morpho , as one of the pioneers in this technology, has rendered advanced ID verification through facial recognition technologies.

Multiple security applications
Facial recognition is an increasingly powerful technology that is expanding its reach across a broad spectrum of security applications, starting with police forces and customs services, where it is used to check identities and search for known criminals. It is also used by armed forces and homeland security units to identify terrorists. But facial recognition is also rapidly extending its scope to more commercial arenas. For example, casinos use this technology to detect both known cheaters and addicted gamblers who have signed up for a self-exclusion program – not to mention VIP clients who expect special treatment. In stadiums, the system can recognize pre-identified violent fans before they take their seats, while department stores are automatically notified of arriving customers who have already been arrested for shoplifting. The other main applications for facial recognition systems include access control at high-value sites, ID checks for travelers and border control.

Facial recognition: a two-faced conundrum
The effectiveness of facial recognition technology depends on several key factors, starting with image quality, which in turn largely depends on how the facial biometrics are captured. According to Claude Bauzou, “We have to distinguish between cooperative and non-cooperative subjects. Cooperative subjects voluntarily allow us to capture their facial image and they follow instructions, like looking directly at the lens, not smiling, etc. Then there's non-cooperative capture for ID purposes, via surveillance cameras, photos or videos of events taken by witnesses using their smartphones, etc.”

Algorithms for identification
The second key performance factor for this biometric technology is the power of the algorithms that are used to determine similarities between facial photos, or matching. For the identification of non-cooperative subjects, matching also involves human input: the system operator has a list of “candidates”, sorted by ranked “similarity scores”. The operator thus makes a preliminary selection by looking at the person's profile (home address, criminal record, etc.), then makes a decision based on a visual comparison of the face photos.

Reliable databases
Facial recognition accuracy also depends on the size and quality of the databases used. To recognize a face, it is necessary to be able to compare it to something! The challenge is to establish matching points between the new image and the source image, in other words, photos of known persons. “The largest image databases in the United States – which only public authorities can access – are those that list holders of driver licenses, passports and other ID documents, not to mention photos of suspects taken during arrests,” explains Jim Albers. When police investigators are looking for a suspect, they may also check out photos on Facebook or other social networks, to compare biometric characteristics. There are also private databases, such as those developed by casinos.

A promising outlook
Still a relatively new technology, facial recognition has considerable headroom for improvement. For instance, these systems could add 3D sensors, recognition of moving faces, processing of images captured from above or the side, development of models to integrate aging, and much more. Another area of improvement is the addition of new functions. “In the coming years, systems based on facial recognition will combine official and commercial procedures”, says Jim Albers. “For instance, tomorrow's airport checkpoints such as MorphoPASS will not only check the traveler's identity and passport validity, but also their ticket, all in a single passage! Morpho's other proven technologies could be integrated in these checkpoints as well, especially our luggage scanning systems to detect explosives or narcotics.”

Dahua HDCVI achieved surveillance upgrading of Shanghai 5-star hotels

Dahua HDCVI achieved surveillance upgrading of Shanghai 5-star hotels

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 6/16/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Dahua Technology, the China-based manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products provided in-house HDCVI solution to 5-star hotels in Shanghai, successfully securing the hotels and guests during the fourth Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures (CICA). 

CICA Shanghai was held between 20th to 21st of May; the conference played a significant role in security industry cooperation throughout Asia. Xi Jinping, President of People's Republic of China also attended and presided over the summit. These hotels had played host to 46 national and organization leaders in Asia during the CICA.

Seeing the importance of CICA, Shanghai municipal government spared no efforts to make sure all participants secured. Among the must-do list was to level up video surveillance system. More than 50 reception hotels had been required to upgrade surveillance system, shifting from standard to high-definition video quality . However, the biggest challenge came from the pressure with the time frame, and a big question to all was --how to make sure the image quality and product replacement would not compromise the daily reception and security concern of these five-star hotels.

Under such circumstance, and given the fact that most of the hotels were using analog systems, it came to a vital decision to adopt Dahua HDCVI, as Dahua HDCVI allows easy upgrade without changing the existing cabling but   still provides long-distance and non-latent image quality. Most of all, the whole upgrading work took merely around 10 days; only cameras, DVRs along with fiber optical transceivers were replaced by HDCVI ones while cabling were unchanged.

Besides, with aesthetic requirement for the hotels, HDCVI offers wide range of housings and its speed domes and box cameras perfectly coexist with the decor in major areas such as lobby, reception, entrance and dining rooms.

“This project demonstrates all the benefits of HDCVI and has proved applicable and workable,” said Tim Shen, Overseas Marketing Director at Dahua Technology. “Within only 10 days, the whole video surveillance system has been upgraded to high definition which is not likely happened to IP solution. What HDCVI has been offered to the industry is another HD solution and this is highly gratified by our customers while cabling, cost and IP hassles are the concerned issues.”

Counting on intelligence: Retail wises up

Counting on intelligence: Retail wises up

Editor / Provider: Eifeh Strom, a&s International | Updated: 6/16/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

In 2012 the aggregate retail revenue of the world's top 250 retailers amounted to approximately US$4.3 trillion, a composite year-over-year revenue growth rate of 4.9 percent, according to the Global Powers of Retailing 2014 report by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Although economic conditions that year were a bit rough, leading retailers across the globe continued to grow. However, with growth comes the desire to not just sustain it, but capitalize on it. The benefits of intelligent solutions in the retail sphere are helping global retailers do just that.

As more and more retailers are starting to realize the benefits not only for security, but for marketing, efficiency, and management as well, the number of retailers adopting intelligent solutions such as “smart” cameras is growing. In fact, the global intelligent video surveillance market in the retail industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 27.1 percent over the period of 2012 to 2016, according to an October 2013 report by Infiniti Research. This increase in retail adoption of analytics is also obvious in the number of security providers coming out with retail-targeted analytics solutions.

Sales and return on investment (ROI) have become increasingly important for brick-and-mortar retailers who are now competing with the convenience of online shopping thanks to the Internet. In an age where the click of a button can deliver anything ranging from clothing to furniture to groceries on one's doorstep, brick-and-mortar retailers are even more conscious of the importance of good marketing, loss prevention, and operational efficiency to name a few. According to the Global Retail Theft Barometer published in October 2013, shrinkage due to shoplifting, employee fraud/ theft, etc., cost the global retail market $112 billion in 2012. That is where intelligent solutions come in. Where old security systems failed to prevent shrinkage and optimize marketing strategies, intelligent solutions are picking up the slack and proving their worth.

Benefiting From Intelligence
The retail market is not known to have a lot of extra money laying around to throw at fancy technology; however, as the price for intelligent solutions come down, some retailers are realizing the investment is worth the price tag. While retailers in the more high-end luxury market are more likely to be able to afford such intelligent solutions, those in the middle market looking to boost sales are also starting to look towards intelligence. Furthermore, not every intelligent system is created equal. Different stores need different functions, and since the price often depends on the features needed, it is possibly for mid-end retailers to find intelligent solutions that fit their budgetary scope. Retailers in the middle range not needing as many or as advanced functions may opt for a more cost-effective solution comprised of a NVR and camera with only basic intelligent features. This solution gives the retailers some of the benefits of intelligence without breaking the bank.

Regardless of the degree of intelligence a retailer chooses to deploy, the ability to improve space optimization, stock monitoring, shop floor tracking, shopper behavior, bottlenecks, queue lengths, staffing levels, etc., are just some of the benefits retailers can expect from an intelligent video solution. With a wide range of features, video content analysis (VCA) software, also known as video analytics, has much to offer retailers in terms of business intelligence (BI). Whether on the edge or integrated into a video management system (VMS), the BI data gathered from VCA features such as face recognition, heat mapping, people counting, and dwell time provide businesses with immediate ROI. But how does it do this? The Beginner's Guide to Video Business Intelligence by 3xLOGIC puts it this way, “Technologies that aggregate the vast amount of disparate data — video data, transactional data, structured and unstructured data — that is generated today, and distils that data into relevant business intelligence that can be easily understood and acted upon; that's video business intelligence.” The idea of actionable intelligence, turning video data into more than just images on a screen, giving that data value, that is how analytics transforms a retailer's security camera system into more than just video surveillance.



C
ase Study: Analytics Optimizes Croatian Retailer's Marketing
While the benefits of analytics is easy to talk about, actually seeing it might be harder; however, Croatian retailer Pevec not only saw the benefits, they utilized and made the most of it. As a retail chain store, Pevec has always taken security seriously, installing video surveillance cameras in each of their 13 stores since their opening. Having heard of the benefits analytics could add to their marketing, Pevec installed a number of RIVA cameras with onboard analytics. The intelligent cameras would not only extend the retailer's existing security system, the onboard people-counting filter would count customers, which would help the marketing department optimize marketing activities and plan sales space. The built-in people-counting filter provided the retailer with important and invaluable data. By counting the number of customers, the marketing department was able to determine the number of visitors during a promotion period and whether the number of customers increased, which if it did was considered short-term success. This success could then be measured in long-term success by seeing if after the promotion ended, whether those acquired customers continued to return to the store.

People-counting data also helped the retailer determine how many of the customers entering were actually making purchases, which was done by comparing the data with the cash desk data. With the data, the marketing department was able to deduce the effectiveness of their marketing strategy. If the majority of customers do not turn into buyers, this indicates that the product range, product presentation, and/or product placement needs to be changed. If the number of customers drops but the majority are buyers, this indicates that the company should pursue more marketing activities. Also, comparing the peoplecounting data of the different stores within the chain gave the retailer better insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each of its branches.

In addition to marketing optimization, people-counting data also helped the retailer increase operational efficiency. By analyzing data for customer traffic during specific times — daytime, weekends, holidays, seasonal periods, etc. — Pevec was able to better utilize their manpower by adjusting the number of employees on staff according to customer traffic. The use of real-time data also helped the stores manage queue lengths and diffuse bottlenecks during peak hours.

Graduating to Smarter Operations
Although price remains a deciding factor for many retailers regarding the feasibility of deploying an intelligent solution, the price of such solutions is going down, meaning soon enough price will no longer be a viable excuse. Combine declining prices with the obvious ROI provided by analytics in terms of business intelligence and it seems that intelligence should be able to find a comfortable home in the retail area sometime in the future.

FLIR layered security approach

FLIR layered security approach

Editor / Provider: Sponsored by FLIR | Updated: 6/16/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

FLIR believes that a layered approach to wide area surveillance and perimeter intrusion detection is necessary to provide advanced warning of potential threats – before they cross a perimeter. Security solutions should not only monitor and protect a physical barrier but also extend beyond the fence to sense, detect, and identify threats, which is especially the case with critical infrastructure, allowing security operators sufficient response time to protect people and facilities.

FLIR offers combinations of uncooled fixed / pan-tilt thermal imaging cameras, ground surveillance radars and long-range multi-sensor imaging systems working together to provide a significantly “hardened” perimeter that will serve to enhance overall security.

Perimeter technology that goes beyond the fence
FLIR multi-sensor systems and integrated solutions for surveillance security are now available for critical infrastructures. All of these systems may be operated independently or in a fully integrated radar/sensor network.

FLIR uncooled fixed thermal imaging cameras can be positioned to cover fence lines, creating a “thermal fence” by leveraging the excellent detection capabilities of thermal imaging cameras coupled to the built in video analytics , that can provide true edge detection of potential intruders on the fence line area.

FLIR medium and long range pan / tilt multi-sensor systems can be deployed to receive alarms from fence line layer of cameras with slew-to-cue integration for security operators to assess the alarm.

FLIR ground-based radars, high resolution radars that accurately detect and track vehicles, small vessels, people, and crawlers, swimmers in virtually any climate, weather, or lighting condition completing a “persistent surveillance solution” to continuously monitor a perimeter and other designated areas using rules-based detection methods; eliminating the need for constant human monitoring of video screens. Upon detection of an intrusion attempt, multi-sensor imaging systems will slew-to-cue to provide target assessment and visual tracking.

With FLIR integrated thermal imaging cameras and radar systems, layered security solutions can truly begin beyond the physical fence and/or virtual fence at sea. Understanding the nature of a threat is critical to intercepting and defeating it. For any effective security system, it is a key requirement of knowing where the threat is coming from, its current location and where it is going. FLIR ground surveillance radars (detection), paired with slew-to-cue ‘ready' FLIR Pan Tilt medium and long range thermal/daylight cameras (assessment), which effectively monitor and control real fence/perimeter breaches, enable security personnel to monitor and control the security zone by intercepting threats before they can complete their mission.

 Advantages
-give lowest cost per km of protection
-robust all weather, night & day performance
-scan,classify and track multiple targets at the same time
-slew to cue and target tracking integration.
