hdcctv allianceThe HDcctv Alliance is proud to announce that video surveillance technology leader ZheJiang Dahua Technology Co., Ltd., has opened its patented HDCVI technology – the basis for the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard – to the global video surveillance industry, through the HDcctv Alliance Member Intellectual Property Agreement.

First introduced in late 2012, HDCVI technology transmits HDTV signals over any legacy CCTV cabling infrastructure. The HDcctv Alliance ratified HDcctv AT 2.0 in February 2014. HDcctv AT 2.0 compliance ensures 100% plug ‘n’ play remote control of any camera from any compliant DVR, no matter which manufacturers.

Zhu Jiangming“Dahua developed HDCVI technology to help our growing customer base to enjoy more of the benefits of HD IP surveillance,” said Mr. Zhu Jiangming, Dahua executive vice president and the principal inventor of the seminal HDCVI patents. “We recognize that customers want all equipment to be 100% multi-vendor plug ‘n’ play, rather than using single-source, proprietary solutions that may not work together. Dahua’s strategy is, therefore, aimed to maximize the return on our investment in HDCVI and in doing so make the technology readily available to other manufacturers – even our direct competitors.

“For these reasons, Dahua has decided to issue licenses under RAND (reasonable and non-discriminatory) terms to other, reciprocating Steering and Manufacturing Members of the HDcctv Alliance. Dahua’s policy is as follows: semiconductor manufacturers implementing the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard independently are asked to pay a license fee on a RAND basis, while HDCVI licenses for implementing the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard are open free of charge to authorized equipment makers, per the HDcctv Alliance Members I.P. Agreement to which Dahua are a signatory. We look forward to collaborating with our partners in the HDcctv Alliance to further accelerate the global migration to HD IP surveillance.”

Todd Rockoff, executive director of the HDcctv Alliance, said: “HDCVI has a multi-year head start over all other analogue HD video surveillance solutions. It is the only solution available as a global standard, with a complete compliance certification regime. While other semiconductor manufacturers are racing to catch up to the analogue HD surveillance transmission market opened by HDCVI, each of these other solutions is proprietary to just one manufacturer. Never before has a sole-source, proprietary transmission solution gained prevalence in the surveillance industry. Out-of-the-box plug ‘n’ play remote control over legacy CCTV infrastructure is a compelling convenience for installers and operators of HD surveillance systems. Therefore, HDcctv AT 2.0 and its successors, all based on HDCVI, appear to be most likely to succeed among the various analogue transmission solutions in development.”

“There is no doubt that the security market is moving quickly to HD surveillance,” said Dr. Jon Hwang, CEO of Eyenix Corporation. “As an Image Signal Processor (ISP) vendor, Eyenix will implement whatever local-site transport technologies our customers need. To manage our design cost for any given technology, it is important for there to be a global standard that eliminates uncertainty.”

“Nextchip supports the global standard for HD surveillance local-site transport,” said Young-Jun Yoo, Nextchip Strategic Marketing Director. “In the long term, Nextchip recognizes the importance of all vendors supporting a single global standard.”

At Security China 2014 the HDcctv Alliance will be exhibiting in the international hall on stand E1Y31, where visitors are encouraged to meet Alliance members, see the latest HDcctv technology in operation, and discover more about the benefits of HDcctv 2.0. The Alliance expects to be able to showcase the first certified HDcctv 2.0-compliant products at the show. To book a meeting at Security China, or simply to find out more about HDcctv 2.0, email: membership@highdefcctv.org.

Security China 2014 takes place at China International Exhibition Centre, Beijing, October 28-31. Visit securitychina.com.cn for more information and to register as a visitor.

airlive PoEAirLive PoE Device Guard Series provide intelligent connection and ensure surveillance performance.

AirLive, one of the most advanced worldwide brands for networking and communication equipments, introduced Airlive PoE switch series can automatically detect the presence of an 802.3at/af compliant powered device (PD) and provide power through the port. Airlive switch provides up to 30W per PoE port and can be used to power AP, IP phone, IP Cam and other PD devices. Airlive PoE switch equipped with high Power AC/DC power module , it does not require external Power adapter and can power up to 24 PoE devices for PoE-GSH2004L-370 with maximum 370W of power totally, and 8 Port PoE devices for PoE-GSH2004L-370 with maximum 130W of power.

Device Guard Switch is the switches which will automatic re-power the PoE IP cameras or Access Point, when the switch detects that IP cameras or Access Point is not working.

airlive PoETo provide intelligent connection guard to benefit the enterprise customers with the reduce labor costs option. At most cases, IP-cameras and access points are located in places that are not easy to reach after initial installation. Device Guard Switch monitors the IP cameras or access points by their IP or packet status and will automatically re-power a device when a non-responsive status is detected. Both wireless and surveillance networks run smoothly without extra technician manually support. Labor Costs can be reduced by cutting the number of employees hired within the security room.

Separate the Surveillance Network from Networks
When a network surveillance system is designed, it is better to keep the network separate from other networks for security as well as performance reasons. At first glance, the obvious choice would be to build a separate network.
However, sometime it is more difficult to deploy another network when users already have network infrastructure for non-surveillance system because the cost for installation and maintenance of extra network infrastructure is expensive.
In this situation, we would suggest users to Airlive Switch’s VLAN technology to separate the surveillance network and non-surveillance network

airlive PoEVLAN is a technology for virtually segmenting networks. It can be achieved by dividing network users into logical groups. Only users in a specific group are capable of exchanging data or accessing certain resources on the network. If a network video system is segmented into a VLAN, only the servers located on that VLAN can access the network cameras. VLANs normally provide a better and more cost-efficient solution than a separate network.

Airlive websmart switch support have two types of VLANs , Port Based VLAN and Tag Based VLAN (802.11Q), it allows users to separate network easier.

The education sector has become an important vertical market for the security industry. With recent high-profile cases of security issues in some schools, it is a market that looks set to become even more security focussed. Many educational establishments are looking more closely than ever at the security of their facilities, to protect people, property and assets from unwarranted attention or attacks. Because of these concerns, current estimates value the access control market for education in the EMEA region at a noteworthy £46M (Source: IMS Research).

tdsi john daviesIntegrated security systems provider TDSi sees the education sector as a particularly interesting growth market, as Managing Director John Davies elaborated, “Our partners have shown significant growth in their education market business in recent years, with the UK and Middle East having particularly strong demands for access control solutions. All the signs are that the market is set to continue growing and offers considerable opportunities for installers, suppliers and manufacturers of security systems that offer products and services which address the needs and concerns of schools, making them safer for all concerned.”

A key factor in understanding the growth of the education security market is realising the actual and perceived security risks in the education sector. Whilst there are numerous reasons for implementing effective access control, common concerns include:

  • Prevention of intrusion on the premises by unauthorised people
  • Maintaining the security and safety of pupils
  • Combatting the increase in assaults on staff and pupils
  • Reduction in the theft of equipment

Due to budgetary restrictions, many educational establishments have limited resources for manned security. Any access control solution needs to take into consideration this limited human resource and enable the staff to be able to rely on its effectiveness through a high degree of dependable automation.

John Davies continued, “Once it has been agreed that security and access control will be beneficial for an education facility, the next step is to decide which features will be most suitable for the application and will actively improve the security situation. This can vary greatly from school to school, but increasingly many educational establishments are turning to fully integrated systems to offer the highest levels of security and ease of management.”

The ideal approach for many educational security projects is to use a range of technologies, for example combining access control with an intercom system and cameras monitoring the entrance. This particular integration example enables visitors to be identified and authorised before allowing access to the building. Integration of various security components often gives the best overall solution, creating a network of safeguards that is greater than the sum of its parts. Typically this will involve fusing the key elements such as access control, CCTV, intrusion detection etc. to provide a comprehensive integrated security system that is highly cost-effective.

By way of a real-world illustration of the high suitability of an integrated security system in an education setting, TDSi’s installation and maintenance partner Frontline Security Solutions (www.fsslimited.com) recently installed a TDSi solution in a leading private school in North East London. The system, comprising of TDSi MICROgarde Controllers, MIFARE readers and EXgarde PRO security management software, monitors and protects pupils and staff, covering over 140 doors across a number of sites. Authorised users can easily and rapidly move between secure and open access areas using a MIFARE card. The MICROgarde controllers administer and relay details back to the central EXgarde PRO software which in turn alerts the security team of any potential issues or security breaches. At the same time, all the security information is shared with the school’s SIMS (School information Management System) to ensure that records are maintained and that access can be granted or denied rapidly in line with the latest information updates. Additionally, these records can be used to assess attendance and timekeeping of users to gain a thorough understanding of any access situation.

Jason Hillier, Business Development Manager at Frontline Security Solutions commented, “For many of our education sector clients, it is ease-of-use that is rated alongside the general level of security as key objectives. MIFARE smartcard technology is well established, provides multiple uses for one card and has been proven worldwide – benefitting from a significant reduction in the price of cards and a higher level of security over a proximity card reader. There is also a great degree of flexibility, as with a multi-use card there is no need to carry more than one token and it can cover a variety of uses including access control, cashless vending, a library and biometric user templates – perfect for use by busy pupils and staff.”

TDSi is also finding an increasing interest in the use of biometric systems in the education sector, with fingerprint readers currently the most widely used type. They have already been introduced into many areas and common applications include access control, e-registration and canteen services. John Davies added, “Increasingly, the education sector is considering more sophisticated biometric solutions such as Facial Recognition, which can be conveniently combined with the SIMS. Using TDSi’s EXgarde PRO access management and integrated security systems management software for example, allows the operator to establish communications with readers, capture the identity template within EXgarde PRO, store the template to a card, store the template in the reader and distribute and manage the templates. Integrating these systems through a single point means the operator can again manage all operations through a central, easy-to-use graphical interface, which is a much more efficient use of their valuable time.”

hikvision 1080pAnalog CCTV users can now enjoy HD resolution while safeguarding their investment in existing cabling infrastructure with Hikvision’s launch of its Turbo HD Analog solution. This revolutionary technology supports latency-free 1080P HD over up-to 500 metres of coaxial cable and offers seamless compatibility with traditional SD cameras, Hikvision IP cameras and HDTVI-compliant cameras and DVRs. At launch, the Turbo HD product family consists of a comprehensive, 32-strong range of Hikvision DVRs and 720P/1080P cameras, including Bullet, Dome, PTZ Dome, Turret, Vari-focal, Vandalproof and Low-Light units.

HD Performance at 1080P/720P
The Hikvision Turbo HD product family is based on HDTVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface) technology and is ideally suited to upgrading existing standard definition systems at low cost. It retains the ease-of-use of an analog system while offering up to 1080P HD video output.

Open HDTVI Technology for 3rd Party Device Compatibility
All Hikvision Turbo HD products adhere to the HDTVI open standard, which guarantees trouble-free connection to other HDTVI-compliant cameras and DVRs. The Hikvision Turbo HD DVRs can also connect with traditional SD analog cameras and all Hikvision Turbo HD cameras can access third party DVRs equipped with HDTVI technology from other manufacturers.

Tribrid System – Futureproof by Combining Turbo HD, Analog and IP
The Hikvision Turbo HD DVR offers simultaneous connections to network, analog and Turbo HD cameras, auto-detecting the incoming signal and recording accordingly. This means that existing systems can be upgraded simply by replacing the current cameras and DVR while new areas may be covered with the addition of IP network cameras.

Up-to 500m HD Transmission via Coaxial Cable
Hikvision HDTVI technology guarantees up-to 500 meters of high-quality and reliable transmission at 720P / 1080P via coaxial cable. A conventional analog solution will struggle to achieve this resolution while HD-SDI solutions are limited in terms of long distance capability. This makes Hikvision Turbo HD a perfect solution to fit all requirements. In addition, the Turbo HD Analog solution supports UTC for remote set-up and configuration, and enables control of the OSD menu and PTZ control via coaxial cable. This means that users no longer have to go to the camera to make changes and enables much faster and easier camera installation and management.

According to Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision, “Turbo HD is a hi-tech tour-de-force in zero-latency, long distance HD-over-coax that demonstrates our commitment to pushing the boundaries of CCTV technology. Until recently, the only option for HD CCTV resolution was the wholesale adoption of IP cameras and their associated technology. Now, with the launch of the Hikvision Turbo HD Analog solution, users can enjoy 720P/1080P without even upgrading to IP or even replacing their existing cabling structure.”

“The system reduces the risk of keys falling into the wrong hands by allowing the access rights of lost keys to be easily removed without the need to change cylinders and makes it easy to add or delete employees when they join or leave the company.

“The new mobile PD updater unit makes it even simpler for the administrator to update user credentials to suit a company’s requirements, even whilst on the move and without having to have access to the key.”

CLIQ Remote is easy to install and has the functionality to create time defined user keys to allow access for a specified period of time, a popular feature for engineers and contractors who need access outside normal working hours.

shield securityShield Security, a full service security business based in Hull – established over 10 years ago and employing more than 300 security officers, has recently invested in the WebeX employee and client web portal for Logosoft Roster Manager.

webex roosterTalking to Melvyn Ford (Payroll Manager), of Shield Security – he explained that prior to the implementation of WebeX, Shield used to have payroll adjustments in the order of £3,000 per payroll with an average value of £75.72. The time spent investigating each individual query was a huge pull on resources – typically taking 2 hours per query, this would take 79 hours per payroll run; effectively un-productive time and an additional overhead to the business.

Example view of ‘Employee Hours Worked’

logosoft portalUsing WebeX employees are able to view the hours recorded for their duties worked over the prior period, they can check this against their records of hours worked – and in doing so deal with any discrepancies before they hit payroll. Thereby removing the painful administration task of investigating the variance, gaining sign-off once evidenced, and then of course making the relevant payroll adjustment.

The result – happy employees and greatly reduced administration for Shield’s payroll staff allowing them to focus on value-add tasks rather than the laborious job of investigations and adjustments. The savings realised by Shield just from this single feature of WebeX represent a massive ROI and payback on their investment within the space of a couple of payroll periods!
