Dallmeier CCTV Software(16)
Dallmeier has expanded its portfolio of online tutorials on its YouTube channel and introduced new videos on the viewing software Smavia Viewing Client. Smavia Viewing Client is a powerful and intuitive software for the convenient evaluation of live and recorded image material via Ethernet. In new “How-To” videos Dallmeier shows how easy it is to use the software and what useful features it offers. "Live View" This video focuses on live viewing of video material. In the Smavia Viewing Client the cameras are represented in a clear camera tree structure, from which they can easily be moved by Drag&Drop into various split windows. A special highlight are the “flexible split windows”: In addition to predefined split views every user can adapt the software specifically to his or her requirements and define and design split windows individually. A corridor mode can also be set up very easily, since there are no fixed default image layouts such as 16:9 or 4:3. If several monitors are being used it is also possible to start the Smavia Viewing Client in multiple instances. In addition, many other useful features are available to the operator, such as the integration of site maps, an easy-to-use zoom function or pixelisation of moving objects. "Search and Backup" This video deals with the subject of search and backup. Here Dallmeier introduces the various search functions of the Smavia Viewing Client and explains step-by-step how to efficiently evaluate recorded image material. In addition to a simple search by date and time, other available options include a fast search with user-defined time units and step lengths, an index search for incidents and an extended search for data from external devices such as scanners of cash registers or ATMs. The most efficient evaluation is offered by a search using Dallmeier SmartFinder, a system for intelligent searches for movement within freely definable image areas. Dallmeier uses an example to clearly explain how SmartFinder works. There are also demonstrations of how to create backups of relevant sequences. Want to learn more? The "Search and Backup" tutorial and other videos can be found online on the Dallmeier YouTube channel. The Smavia Viewing Client is available for downloading free of charge on the Dallmeier homepage.Add to Compare

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) affirms the great importance of data protection and data security, but does not spell out any regulations relating specifically to video security systems. With the 14 functions of the Dallmeier module, businesses can configure their video systems individually so that each is compliant with the requirements of the EU GDPR. The video solution must satisfy the criteria for data protection With regard to data protection, which is to say the safeguarding of data protection principles and the rights of data subjects, Dallmeier offers four components, specifically the pixellation of entire individuals by “people masking”, the setup of “private zones” in the captured image to render public areas invisible for example, and the definition of the maximum storage duration for each camera. Optionally, Dallmeier customers can also use a detailed virtual 3D simulation as early as the project planning stage to define which areas are not significant for data protection purposes due to image quality. Data security is paramount in the EU GDPR – for video as well For the requirements of data security, i.e. the protection of confidential or personal data from manipulation, loss or unauthorised access, the Dallmeier module offers ten functions in all. On the network level, the Dallmeier module provides authentication according to IEEE 802.1X, end-to-end encryption with TLS 1.2 / 256-bit AES in current Dallmeier systems, and with the “ViProxy” function, Dallmeier recording appliances fulfil the role of security gateway for the video system. Furthermore, all hardware, software and firmware solutions are developed in-house, which eliminates the possibility of hidden access through backdoors. On the recording level, compliance with EU GDPR regulations is guaranteed by the optional “dual control principle” for viewing recordings, the specification of recording time for each user group with “MaxView” and user group administration via AD/LDAP. Reliable detection and prevention of connection attempts is assured by the “Fail2Ban” function, corresponding failover and redundancy mechanisms during recording protect against data losses. Finally, LGC certification ensures that all criteria for judicial usability are fulfilled in the preservation of evidence. “It is no secret that the ultimate interpretation of the EU GDPR in practical implementation is in no way defined conclusively and will continue to be debated and defined intensely by the national and European data protection oversight authorities until long after the end of 2018”, says Jürgen Seiler, managing director of the Dallmeier consulting subsidiary davidiT. “Consequently, the best and simplest way to approach video security is to implement solutions which already provide the answers to all of the requirements that can be anticipated. With the 14 functions of our combined data protection and data security module, customers receive access to precisely this functional range in a form which is easy to both manage and configure.” Comprehensive brochure and webinar with solution and application demo on the subject A comprehensive brochure on the subject is available and a webinar on the data protection and data security module will be presented on July 19th 2018 at 05:00 pm CET for interested decision makers and technicians. The webinar will provide a general overview of the topic and of the various functions and their configuration.

Insider threat programmes started with counter-espionage cases in the government. Today, insider threat programmes have become a more common practice in all industries, as companies understand the risks associated with not having one. To build a programme, you must first understand what an insider threat is. An insider threat is an employee, contractor, visitor or other insider who have been granted physical or logical access to a company that can cause extensive damage. Damage ranges from emotional or physical injury, to personnel, financial and reputational loss to data loss/manipulation or destruction of assets. Financial and confidential information While malicious insiders only make up 22% of the threats, they have the most impact on an organisation Most threats are derived from the accidental insider. For example, it’s the person who is working on a competitive sales pitch on an airplane and is plugging in financial and confidential information. They are working hard, yet their company’s information is exposed to everyone around them. Another type of insider, the compromised insider, is the person who accidentally downloaded malware when clicking on a fake, urgent email, exposing their information. Malicious insiders cause the greatest concerns. These are the rogue employees who may feel threatened. They may turn violent or take action to damage the company. Or you have the criminal actor employees who are truly malicious and have been hired or bribed by another company to gather intel. Their goal is to gather data and assets to cause damage for a specific purpose. While malicious insiders only make up 22% of the threats, they have the most impact on an organisation. They can cause brand and financial damage, along with physical and mental damage. Insider threat programme Once you determine you need an insider threat programme, you need to build a business case and support it with requirements. Depending on your industry, you can start with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, NERC CIP, PCI, etc. Talk to your regulator and get their input. Everyone needs to be onboard, understand the intricacies of enacting a programme Next, get a top to bottom risk assessment to learn your organisation’s risks. A risk assessment will help you prioritise your risks and provide recommendations about what you need to include in your programme. Begin by meeting with senior leadership, including your CEO to discuss expectations. Creating an insider threat programme will change the company culture, and the CEO must understand the gravity of his/her decision before moving forward. Everyone needs to be onboard, understand the intricacies of enacting a programme and support it before its implemented. Determining the level of monitoring The size and complexity of your company will determine the type of programme needed. One size does not fit all. It will determine what technologies are required and how much personnel is needed to execute the programme. The company must determine what level of monitoring is needed to meet their goals. After the leadership team decides, form a steering committee that includes someone from legal, HR and IT. Other departments can join as necessary. This team sets up the structure, lays out the plan, determines the budget and what type of technologies are needed. For small companies, the best value is education. Educate your employees about the programme, build the culture and promote awareness. Teach employees about the behaviours you are looking for and how to report them. Behavioural analysis software Every company is different and you need to determine what will gain employee support The steering committee will need to decide what is out of scope. Every company is different and you need to determine what will gain employee support. The tools put in place cannot monitor employee productivity (web surfing). That is out of scope and will disrupt the company culture. What technology does your organisation need to detect insider threats? Organisations need software solutions that monitor, aggregate and analyse data to identify potential threats. Behavioural analysis software looks at patterns of behaviour and identifies anomalies. Use business intelligence/data analytics solutions to solve this challenge. This solution learns the normal behaviour of people and notifies security staff when behaviour changes. This is done by setting a set risk score. Once the score crosses a determined threshold, an alert is triggered. Case and incident management tools Predictive analytics technology reviews behaviours and identifies sensitive areas of companies (pharmacies, server rooms) or files (HR, finance, development). If it sees anomalous behaviour, it can predict behaviours. It can determine if someone is going to take data. It helps companies take steps to get ahead of bad behaviour. If an employee sends hostile emails, they are picked up and an alert is triggered User sentiment detection software can work in real time. If an employee sends hostile emails, they are picked up and an alert is triggered. The SOC and HR are notified and security dispatched. Depending on how a company has this process set-up, it could potentially save lives. Now that your organisation has all this data, how do you pull it together? Case and incident management tools can pool data points and create threat dashboards. Cyber detection system with access control An integrated security system is recommended to be successful. It will eliminate bubbles and share data to see real-time patterns. If HR, security and compliance departments are doing investigations, they can consolidate systems into the same tool to have better data aggregation. Companies can link their IT/cyber detection system with access control. Deploying a true, integrated, open system provides a better insider threat programme. Big companies should invest in trained counterintelligence investigators to operate the programme. They can help identify the sensitive areas, identify who the people are that have the most access to them, or are in a position to do the greatest amount of harm to the company and who to put mitigation plans around to protect them. They also run the investigations. Potential risky behaviour Using the right technology along with thorough processes will result in a successful programme You need to detect which individuals are interacting with information systems that pose the greatest potential risk. You need to rapidly and thoroughly understand the user’s potential risky behaviour and the context around it. Context is important. You need to decide what to investigate and make it clear to employees. Otherwise you will create a negative culture at your company. Develop a security-aware culture. Involve the crowd. Get an app so if someone sees something they can say something. IT should not run the insider threat programme. IT is the most privileged department in an organisation. If something goes wrong with an IT person, they have the most ability to do harm and cover their tracks. They need to be an important partner, but don’t let them have ownership and don’t let their administrators have access. Educating your employees and creating a positive culture around an insider threat programme takes time and patience. Using the right technology along with thorough processes will result in a successful programme. It’s okay to start small and build.
Today, the world is connected like never before. Your watch is connected to your phone, which is connected to your tablet and so on. As we’ve begun to embrace this ‘smart’ lifestyle, what we’re really embracing is the integration of systems. Why do we connect our devices? The simplest answer is that it makes life easier. But, if that’s the case, why stop at our own personal devices? Connection, when applied to a business’ operations, is no different: it lowers effort and expedites decision making. Integrating security systems Systems integration takes the idea of connected devices and applies it to an enterprise Systems integration takes the idea of connected devices and applies it to an enterprise, bringing disparate subcomponents into a single ecosystem. This could mean adding a new, overarching system to pull and collect data from existing subsystems, or adapting an existing system to serve as a data collection hub. Regardless of the method, the purpose is to create a single, unified view. Ultimately, it’s about simplifying processes, gaining actionable insights into operations and facilitating efficient decision-making. Although integration is becoming the new norm in other areas of life, businesses often opt out of integrating security systems because of misconceptions about the time and resources required to successfully make the change. So, instead of a streamlined operation, the various security systems and devices are siloed, not communicating with each other and typically being run by different teams within an organisation. Time-intensive process When systems are not integrated, companies face a wide range of risks driven by a lack of transparency and information sharing, including actual loss of property or assets. For example, a team in charge of access control is alerted to a door being opened in the middle of the night but can’t see what exactly is taking place through video surveillance. Without integrated systems they have no way of knowing if it was a burglar, an equipment malfunction or a gust of wind. Without integration between systems and teams, the ability to quickly put the right pieces in front of decision makers is missing. Instead, the team would have to go back and manually look for footage that corresponds with the time a door was open to figure out which door it was, who opened it and what happened after, which can be a time-intensive process. Integrating access control and surveillance systems Theft and vandalism occur quickly, meaning systems and users must work faster in order to prevent it This slowed response time adds risk to the system. Theft and vandalism occur quickly, meaning systems and users must work faster in order to prevent it. Security systems can do more than communicate that theft or vandalism occurred. Properly integrated, these systems alert users of pre-incident indicators before an event happens or deter events altogether. This gives teams and decision makers more time to make effective decisions. Integrating access control and surveillance systems allows for a more proactive approach. If a door is opened when it’s not supposed to be, an integrated system enables users to quickly see what door was opened, who opened it and make a quick decision. Integrated solutions are more effective, more efficient and help drive cost-saving decisions. Ideally, companies should establish integrated solutions from the start of operations. This allows companies to anticipate problems and adjust accordingly instead of reacting after an incident has occurred. Security camera system Although starting from the beginning is the best way to ensure comprehensive security, many companies have existing security systems, requiring integration and implementation to bring them together. Typically, companies with established security systems worry about the impact to infrastructure requirements. Is additional infrastructure necessary? How and where should it be added? What financial or human resources are required? These concerns drive a mentality that the benefits gained from an integrated solution aren’t worth the costs of implementation. Thankfully, this is becoming less of a problem as security providers, like Twenty20™ Solutions, work to offer adaptable solutions. With flexible options, operators don’t worry about adding or replacing infrastructure to align with a provider’s model. This allows users to monitor camera footage and gate traffic from one system If a company has an existing security camera system, but identifies a need for access control, a modern integrated solution provider can supply the gates for access points and equip the gates and cameras with the technology to connect the two. This allows users to monitor camera footage and gate traffic from one system. This model also spares operators additional costs by using a sole vendor for supplemental needs. Overall management of security While a single, unified system is beneficial for cost saving, it can also help the overall management of security. The ability to view all operating systems in one dashboard allows security personnel to manage a site from any location, reducing the expense and effort required to manage a system. The mobile world today means security directors no longer need to be in a centralised operations center to see alerts and make decisions. This simplifies processes by allowing users to quickly see an alert, pull up a camera, delete a user or check an access log from a phone. Modern networks are secure and accessible to those with permissions, without requiring those users to be physically present. Consolidating security systems is the first step companies can take toward streamlining work, information and costs. The next step is integrating all sites, both remote and on-grid. Energy and communication technology The integration of sites and systems turns mountains of data and information into actionable intelligence Traditional methods demanded two systems: one for on-grid facilities and another for off-grid locations. With advancements in energy and communication technology, the need for multiple systems is gone. Data from remote sites can be safely and securely fed into an existing system. These remote locations may gather, distribute and manage data in a different manner than a connected system due to the cost of transmission via remote connections (i.e., cellular or satellite connection). The end result, however, is a consistent and holistic view of operations for the decision maker. The integration of sites and systems turns mountains of data and information into actionable intelligence. With connected devices monitoring occurrences at individual sites, as well as events across locations, the data tells a story that is unhindered by operational silos or physical space. Identifying patterns and trends Instead of providing 10 hours-worth of footage that may or may not be relevant, system analytics can provide users with the specific set of information they need. Incidents once discarded as ‘one-off’ events can now be analysed and data-mapped to identify patterns and trends, directing future resources to the most critical areas first. Consumers are increasingly expecting everything they need to be right where they need it – and businesses are right behind them. The current generation of security professionals are increasingly expecting the simplicity of their everyday personal tasks to be mirrored in enterprise systems, which means giving them the ability to see what matters in one place. A unified system can provide just that, a single view to help simplify processes, promote cost saving and accelerate decision making.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is improving everyday solutions, driving efficiency in ways we never imagined possible. From self-driving cars to intelligent analytics, the far-reaching impacts of Deep Learning-based technology empower human operators to achieve results more effectively while investing fewer resources and less time. By introducing AI, solutions are not merely powered by data, but they also generate valuable intelligence. Systems which were once leveraged for a narrow, dedicated purpose, can suddenly be engaged broadly across an organisation, because the previously under-utilised data can be harnessed for enhancing productivity and performance. Video analytics software The video intelligence software processes and analyses video to detect all the people and objects that appear When it comes to physical security, for instance, video surveillance is a standard solution. Yet, by introducing AI-driven video analytics software, video data can be leveraged as intelligence in previously inaccessible ways. Here are some examples of how diverse organisations are using AI-based video intelligence solutions to enhance security and performance with searchable, actionable and quantifiable insights. Law enforcement relies on video surveillance infrastructure for extracting investigation evidence and monitoring people and spaces. Instead of manual video review and live surveillance – which is prone to human error and distraction – police can harness video content analysis to accelerate video investigations, enhance situational awareness, streamline real-time response, identify suspicious individuals and recognise patterns and anomalies in video. The video intelligence software processes and analyses video to detect all the people and objects that appear; identify, extract and classify them; and then index them as metadata that can be searched and referenced. Maintaining public safety For law enforcement, the ability to dynamically search video based on granular criteria is critical for filtering out irrelevant details and pinpointing objects of interest, such as suspicious persons or vehicles. Beyond accelerating video evidence review and extraction, police can leverage video analysis to configure sophisticated real-time alerts when people, vehicles or behaviours of interest are detected in video. Instead of actively monitoring video feeds, law enforcement can assess triggered alerts and decide how to respond. In this way, officers can also react faster to emergencies, threats and suspicious activity as it develops. Video analysis empowers cities to harness their video surveillance data as operational intelligence Empowering law enforcement to maintain public safety is important beyond the benefit of increasing security: A city with a reputation for effective, reliable law enforcement and enhanced safety is more likely to attract residents, visitors and new businesses, exponentially driving its economic development. Furthermore, in cities where law enforcement can work productively and quickly, time and human resources can be reallocated to fostering growth and building community. Video surveillance data Video analysis empowers cities to harness their video surveillance data as operational intelligence for optimising city management and infrastructure. When video data is aggregated over time, it can be visualised into dashboards, heatmaps and reports, so operators can identify patterns and more seamlessly detect anomalous behaviour. A city could, for instance, analyse the most accident-prone local intersection and assess the traffic patterns to reveal details such as where cars are dwelling and pedestrians are walking; the directional flows of traffic; and the demographic segmentations of the objects detected: Are cars lingering in no-parking zones? Are pedestrians using designated crosswalks – is there a more logical location for the crosswalk or traffic light? Do vehicles tend to make illegal turns – should police proactively deter this behaviour, or should the city plan new infrastructure that enables vehicles to safely perform these turns? Finally, does the rise in bike traffic warrant implementing dedicated biking lanes? With video intelligence, urban planners can answer these and other questions to facilitate local improvements and high quality of life. By leveraging the video insights about citywide traffic, public transit organisations can make data-driven decisions about scheduling and services Enhancing situational awareness Insight into traffic trends is also critical for transport companies, from public transit services to transportation hubs and airports. By leveraging the video insights about citywide traffic, public transit organisations can make data-driven decisions about scheduling and services. Analysing video surveillance around bus stops, for instance, can help these companies understand the specific hours per day people tend to dwell around bus stops. Correlating this information with transactional data for each bus line, bus schedules can be optimised based on demand for individual bus lines, shortening waiting times for the most popular routes. Similarly, the traffic visualisations and activity heatmaps derived from the video of major transit hubs, such as international airports and central stations, can be beneficial for increasing security, enhancing situational awareness, identifying causes of congestion, improving throughput and efficiency and, ultimately, solving these inefficiencies to provide a streamlined customer experience for travellers. Large education campuses Campus law enforcement can leverage video data to increase situational awareness and public safety Much like a city, large education campuses have internal transportation services, residential facilities, businesses and law enforcement, and video content analysis can support the campus in intelligently managing each of those business units, while also providing video intelligence to these individual groups. Campus law enforcement can leverage video data to increase situational awareness and public safety, driving real-time responses with the ability to make informed assessments and accelerating post-event investigations with access to easily extractable video data. When campuses are expanding or developing additional infrastructure, they can plan new crosswalks, traffic lights, roads, buildings and entrances and exits based on comprehensive video intelligence. By understanding where pedestrians and vehicles dwell, walk, cross or even violate traffic laws, the campus can inform construction projects and traffic optimisation. Countless business operations The campus can leverage video business intelligence to justify leasing pricing for different retailers across campus Finally, the campus can leverage video business intelligence to justify leasing pricing for different retailers across campus, demonstrating property values based on traffic trends that can be correlated with retailer point of sale data. Whether its empowering security, productivity or decision-making, the insights generated by AI-based technology can drive significant optimisation – especially when data is fused and cross-referenced across smart sensors and systems for even deeper intelligence. In the case of AI-backed video analytics, diverse organisations can harness video surveillance impactfully and dynamically. Whereas once video technology investments could be justified for their security value – with the introduction of AI capabilities – procurement teams can evaluate these solutions for countless business operations, because they offer broadly valuable intelligence. And video surveillance and analytics is merely one example of AI-driven solutions’ potential to disrupt business as we know it.
Dallmeier electronic, the German video information technology manufacturer, presents its new website. The website features a completely reworked content, intuitive navigation and a clear design language reflecting the new corporate design. The web presence particularly addresses the requirements not only of end customers in the company's various core markets, but also partners and installers. The transformation of Dallmeier electronic from camera manufacturer to provider of integrated solutions is now evident in the company's internet presence. In tandem with the introduction of the new " Panomera® W" series of cameras, Dallmeier has launched a new website. The simple navigation concentrates on the company's core competences which have long set the company in a class by itself: economical industry solutions, innovative, radical technologies and comprehensive services. Innovative 3D planning approach In the course of the last few years, Dallmeier has expanded its expertise steadily in core sectors such as safe city, stadiums, airports, industry and casinos. This also reflects the new website menu, where customers can find video-based, industry-specific solutions under "Solutions". Dallmeier has been in the business of creating products and solutions that offer real added value" The "Technology" menu item includes all the modules of an end-to-end video and security management system. "Service" offers complete information about the company's portfolio of services, such as the innovative 3D planning approach. Security and process optimisation The simple, clearly structured organisation of the pages and the responsive web design are more than just a boon to the user experience. According to Georg Martin, Chief Communications Officer (CCO) at Dallmeier they also reflect the corporate philosophy: “For our customers, this means helping them to achieve their security and process optimisation objectives as economically as possible and with the highest possible quality. “For 35 years now, Dallmeier has been in the business of creating products and solutions that offer real added value through innovative functions – such as a considerably smaller number of cameras through the patented multifocal sensor technology of the Panomera® systems. We look at everything from the point of view of the market, that is to say the customer, so customers can navigate our new web presence rapidly by recognising solution advantages specifically for their industry and finding fast, concise explanations of the associated technologies."
When capturing large spatial contexts with video technology, users still have to make many compromises. The 180- and 360-degree versions of the Panomera W series from Dallmeier have taken up the cause of overcoming these challenges and providing customers with the ability to monitor their indoor and outdoor premises most effectively for minimal outlay in terms of personnel and costs. The task of providing surveillance for large outdoor expanses and indoor areas successfully yet efficiently in terms of costs and personnel is one of the great challenges in video technology. Operators and staffing budgets alike are most often overstretched, then there are high infrastructure costs to consider, and not infrequently the result with regard to image quality, overview, achievement of objectives and operability falls short of expectations. Panomera W series cameras Panomera W8 (360°) and W4 (180°) systems, the images from the individual sensors are merged In the new Panomera W8 (360°) and W4 (180°) systems, the images from the individual sensors are merged by the innovative Dallmeier operating software in such a way that the operator is presented with a logical, almost entirely rectified panoramic overview. The cameras even reproduce the area directly below the housing in high resolution. Another unique feature of the Panomera systems is that in principle any number of operators can zoom into a scene at the same time, and the total overview image is retained at all times both live and in the recording. In this way, it is guaranteed that no valuable information or evidence is lost. If several systems are used at the same time, objects can be tracked across multiple camera systems very easily – or the same scene can be examined from various viewpoints quite conveniently. Video management software The Regensburg-based manufacturer states that during development of the Panomera W series the economic efficiency of the overall system was the highest priority. As a result, usability innovations and the small number of cameras needed significantly help to save costs in all important aspects from planning and implementation to operation and service. This in turn yields advantages for everyone involved and all stages of the project – from the installer to the person making the business decisions. Those responsible for security will be glad of the extremely simple operation of the systems due to the available video management software and the small number of screens needed to cover the scene. Situation assessments are made quickly and assuredly; changing perspectives with a few clicks of the mouse and object tracking across multiple cameras make the system exceptionally flexible and powerful. Easy and seamless Operation Operating even a large number of cameras as a total system is simplicity itself and so enables large spatial relationships to be monitored much more efficiently. Consequently, a very large overall context per operator can be captured. As a result, personnel costs relative to area covered with the new cameras are low for ongoing operation. Since considerably fewer cameras are needed than for comparable solutions, the costs for masts, installation, cables and cable-laying or mounting points are also reduced. The manufacturer also offers a solution for environments with limited bandwidth: Upon request, the optional ‘junction box’ can be equipped with up to four terabytes of memory, thereby dispensing with the need for routing new cables and network components in certain scenarios. Quick Lock mounting system ‘Mountera’ mounting concept of the Panomera W series offers many innovations The "Quick Lock" mounting system enables the same camera systems to be swapped between different locations, for example if different crime hotspots are to be observed at different times in an urban surveillance setting. For installers, the integrated, newly developed ‘Mountera’ mounting concept of the Panomera W series offers many innovations for installing the cameras much faster and therefore less expensively: From the mounting handle for removal and transportation to an integrated "bubble protector" which remains on the system until final installation, up to the "quick lock" system for mounting by a single technician. Additionally, only one Allen key size is needed in order to complete the entire installation. Plug-and-play capability The Panomera W series camera models have at last been made truly "plug-and-play" capable with the full pre-calibration and pre-setting of all sensors. Accordingly, the effort needed to adjust the optical elements is reduced to a minimum as well. Another major element of total cost optimisation is the planning. This is carried out with the aid of a proprietary 3D software suite developed by the manufacturer and by a team of experts who create an exact "digital twin" of the entire customer environment. Additionally, hidden spots in the field of view can be circumvented, cameras and auxiliary components can be positioned efficiently and the minimum resolution density over the entire area can be planned precisely – this last being an important prerequisite for usability in court and analysis functions. CamCards The ‘CamCards’ generated by the planning contain highly precise mounting information The ‘CamCards’ generated by the planning contain highly precise mounting information and reduce friction losses during commissioning to a minimum. "When tendering, it is not the cheapest system that is required, but the solution that can be operated most economically. Therefore, when deciding for a video security solution it is essential to perform a total cost assessment and not to be distracted by ostensibly low prices of the individual components", says Dieter Dallmeier, Founder & CEO, Dallmeier electronic. He says, "We consistently adhered to this guideline during development of the Panomera W series and we have developed a system which provides the greatest possible economy over the full spectrum of its aspects. On the functional level, solutions of the Panomera W series also provide a total overview of large spatial relationships which hitherto did not exist on the market in this form."
The Dallmeier 5000 series single sensor cameras are equipped with a new encoder technology. The new versions of the dome, IR and fisheye cameras support H.265 HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) and offer improved object classification with camera-based, AI-enhanced Video Content Analysis (VCA). H.265 compression By its nature, the constantly improving resolution of video images demands high bandwidths and large amounts of memory. With the new generation H.265 encoder in the Dallmeier cameras, data rate can be reduced by up to 50% compared with an H.264 stream without sacrificing resolution or image quality. When used in conjunction with the latest Dallmeier recording systems, a significant reduction in network and memory capacity can be achieved. Another advantage of the new 5000 series cameras is the new generation of Video Content Analysis (VCA) Another advantage of the new 5000 series cameras is the new generation of Video Content Analysis (VCA). Neural networks are implemented in the camera, supporting the classic VCA and thus enabling significantly more efficient object classification in the camera itself. After a short learning phase, the system is capable of delivering still more precisely defined analysis of the recordings and more effective use of automatic video analysis functions such as lossless and multiple auto tracking. Dallmeier Camera Series 5000 The camera models DDF5250HDV-DN and DDF5450HDV-DN (dome), DF5250HDV-DN/IR and DF5450HDV-DN/IR (box IR) and SDF5450HD-DN (fisheye) can be ordered now and will be ready for delivery from 19 August 2019 onwards.
