In 2017, DITEK saw how power surges from the many natural disasters that took place damaged many businesses. In a natural disaster, or even everyday business operations, a facility’s entire investment in security, life safety and surveillance systems technology can be disabled or rendered useless in a few seconds. Surge protection solutions can mitigate those risks and protect security investments. Proactive approach to risk mitigation Throughout 2017, we also witnessed a change in how enterprises view surge protection, which included how investments are being made in surge protection to protect valuable security, life safety and surveillance systems, while also reducing downtime, manpower costs, liability vulnerabilities, and possibly compliance issues that can force businesses to actually cease operations. Effective security management is about mitigating risks. But risks cannot be mitigated without a proactive approach. Enterprises and integrators, who take the time to assess risk and to develop a strategy to incorporate effective detection, deter and response criteria to protect physical assets will be successful in 2018. 2018 and beyond That strategy includes designing surge protection into new security systems, while also adding surge protection to existing systems. Enterprises and security integrators who implement a surge protection strategy during security planning processes – or after – will be exercising prevention and mitigation, and they will be successful in 2018 and beyond. Surge protection devices have an untapped potential for enterprise surveillance and security systems In 2017, Ditek continued to offer security end users a solid surge protection solution. We also successfully educated system integrators, who are seeking value-added products or services to incorporate into their portfolios, on the importance of surge protection devices. Educating security integrators We believe that surge protection devices have an untapped potential for enterprise video surveillance and security systems, because they can and do meet safety and security challenges that have been rarely identified in the past. We are looking forward to 2018, when we will continue to develop new surge protection products – including a new product engineered to protect up to twelve individual fuel dispensers, which is critical to the financial operation of convenience stores. We will also continue to educate security integrators about the importance of including surge protection in the design/build RFP, to not only secure an enterprise’s valuable security equipment, but also to help integrators to differentiate their capabilities and knowledge from the competition.
Technology is changing the look and function of today’s security control rooms. Old-school CRT (cathode-ray tube) monitors are giving way to the thinner, flat screen monitors in the control room environment, but the transition is gradual. Randy Smith of Winsted still sees many control rooms that need to make the conversion, which is a boon to his company’s business. Furniture today is designed differently to accommodate the thinner monitors, often with larger screens. Need for integrated rack systems With the increase of IP-based systems comes the need for integrated rack systems that include advanced functionality such as cable management, adds Jim Coleman, National Sales Manager, AFC Industries. Server rooms are environmentally controlled by cooling systems and power systems monitored on the IP network. Low-profile flat screens allow centres to utilise space vertically, thus creating a smaller footprint for the consoles. Additionally, with IP-based systems, workstations will have a smaller footprint because there is less cumbersome equipment. In most cases the servers are stored in a secured, climate controlled environment to eliminate overheating of the servers and maintain their security, says Coleman. This environment also helps with cable and power management. AFC builds technical furniture racks that adhere to the precise needs of computer network server room operators. The company designs and fabricates LAN workbenches with versatile functionalities, and server room workstation racks that are scalable. There is a complete line of IT workbenches, IT computer racks and computer server rack mounts with flexible mounting options. In most cases the servers are stored in a secured, climate controlled environment to eliminate overheating of the servers and maintain their security Flexible control room designs Matko Papic, Chief Technology Officer of Evans Consoles, says the transition from bulky CRT equipment to flat-screen (lower profile) monitors was a major disruption in control room design; it changed the whole dynamic. Another evolution is the use of IP video streaming, which allows more flexibility in manipulation of audio-video content, and requires more flexible control room designs. Another shift, driven by larger, higher-definition monitors, is a shift to fewer monitors that display more information. Instead of a smaller monitor for each information stream, larger monitors now consolidate that information into “dashboard” displays. Looking ahead, control rooms will need to be more flexible, both in the initial design and the ability to adapt to changing technology, says Papic. Legacy customers who are currently using PCs may be moving to more remote applications. Sit-stand equipment will continue to be increasingly prevalent. “There will be more emphasis on flexibility, technology integration, and the ability to change over the life of the system,” says Papic. Consolidation of multiple operations into a single system A trend in security is consolidation of multiple physical operations into a single system, says Papic. As a result, more customers are taking more interest in alarm management and situational awareness. How is the technology being used in terms of alarm triggers? How can the systems react rapidly and provide information to a larger audience in the control room? These questions impact how control rooms are designed, and Evans Consoles can adapt lessons learned from other markets to these trends in the security arena. Greater use of technology is inevitable, says Coleman of AFC Industries. “It is virtually impossible for humans to monitor all security data at the street level in our cities,” he says. “As computers become more powerful and their programs more all-encompassing, we will see a greater shift to robotic and technology uses that will provide enhanced monitoring capabilities and safety Read our Control Rooms series here
The security industry will continue to see consolidation through acquisition in 2017. At the advent of IP camera adoption, we saw a great decline in large vertically integrated companies, which spurred a new era of innovation within smaller IP camera manufacturers, VMS providers and other hardware companies for storage and managed switches. We are now living in a new era of consolidation that is taking us full-circle back to vertical integration. Ultimately, the industry as a whole suffers because this consolidation will stifle innovation until the next big technology disruption takes shape. Interoperability across different verticals This time last year, we noted that the marketplace was moving toward converged technologies and the need for alarm management across multiple platforms into a common interface, turned out to be a popular request. If anything, we are only seeing just the beginning phases of this transition. The biggest surprise is that interoperability is not only confined to security technology, but also extends to parallel systems such as building automation, safety and environmental controls, and even Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Using Video Event Management Software (VEMS) alongside these intelligent platforms proves to be a valuable verification process for many new and exciting vertical markets. Arteco plans to continue the revenue growth and brand awareness achieved in 2016 Event-based video security software At Arteco, our highest growth sectors tend to be slightly insulated from economic fluctuation in the sense that we focus on securing critical infrastructure (electrical utilities and communications) as well as corporate and education campuses. Unfortunately, the continued growth in active shooter incidents have made physical security concerns top of mind for many organisations regardless of economic impact. The unexpected repercussions are that many new security technologies are emerging that cater to real-time event notification on both the macro and micro level. The exciting part of this trend is that users are leveraging a layered approach with multiple autonomous applications working together toward a common goal to improve security, which will hopefully ensure a high level of protection. Business growth and challenges Business has continued to grow year-over-year, and 2016 was a huge step forward for Arteco not only in terms of revenue growth, but also increased brand awareness in the United States and abroad. Our biggest challenge continues to be the crowded VMS market, which is filled with lower cost or even free substitute products. We are making great strides in overcoming this challenge by having a wonderful team of people, both on the technical and sales side of the organisation, who are focused on finding new and innovative ways to advance intuitive, open and affordable event-based and intelligent video security software into 2017.

MOBOTIX is making the next big advance in intelligent video technology, furthering its mission statement of going ‘Beyond Human Vision’. By launching its new MOBOTIX 7 open solution platform and the M73 high-end camera that uses it, the company is once again cementing its position as a pioneer in this technology. Supported by artificial intelligence and application solutions based on deep learning, the new generation of video cameras not only enables an unlimited set of functions; it also opens up brand new possibilities far beyond traditional video security. This means that the MOBOTIX systems remain fully reliable and secure, as cybersecurity and data security continue to have the highest priority. New Standards For Intelligent Video Technology The MOBOTIX 7 is by far our most powerful decentralised and secure modular IoT-video system" The M7 system platform and the M73 camera were presented to over 500 international technology and sales partners, as well as representatives of the press, at this year's MOBOTIX Global Partner Conference (GPC) in Mainz. "The MOBOTIX 7 is by far our most powerful decentralised and secure modular IoT-video system based on deep learning modules, and sets new standards for intelligent video technology," explained Hartmut Sprave, Chief Technology Officer at MOBOTIX AG, in his opening speech. "Our hardware and software are 'Made in Germany', and tailor-made camera apps provide limitless possibilities for expanding the MOBOTIX 7. This will revolutionise numerous IoT processes — not only for us, but for our technology partners and customers in various markets too," says Sprave. The MOBOTIX camera apps can detect when a building is in danger of becoming overcrowded Future market requirement Even at its launch, the MOBOTIX 7 already comes with pre-installed apps that are verified and certified by MOBOTIX and meet the highest standards in terms of cyber security. These apps are supported by artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning, and cover a significant number of industry-specific, individual requirements. It is also possible for partners, customers or users to develop and program their own solutions and have these certified by MOBOTIX. "This means that the range is growing dynamically in response to customers' needs, so virtually any current and future market requirement can be met with a tailor-made application installed directly on a camera featuring the MOBOTIX 7 platform," explained Sprave. AI-based analytics One of the MOBOTIX camera apps can detect when a building is in danger of becoming overcrowded The new MOBOTIX video system is also suitable for our customers' very particular and individual challenges in specific areas: For example, one of the MOBOTIX camera apps can detect when a building is in danger of becoming overcrowded. In this case, the camera immediately and automatically triggers a diversion for any further persons wishing to enter the building, thus reliably preventing accidents and panic. By combining image sensors and environmental sensors with AI-based analytics, industrial enterprises can increase their production efficiency and improve fire prevention measures, for example. The object-based recognition of individual road users, such as trucks, cars or people, and their behaviour, such as stopping, accelerating and so on, is enabled for traffic and transport applications. The information that is immediately available can improve the road safety for drivers and passengers, while enabling other road users to continue moving in an unobstructed flow. Video management software "Together with our partners, we aim to develop a multitude of other solutions based on artificial intelligence and deep learning to help predict events and facilitate the early introduction of effective countermeasures aimed at protecting the environment, buildings, systems, people or animals," said Sprave, the Chief Technology Officer.

Bolloré Logistics is one of the top ten transport and logistics companies in the world. Its warehousing and logistics facility near Auckland Airport, New Zealand, has seen significant growth in recent years and often handles in excess of 2,000 items in a day. As a customs bonded warehouse, the location is subject to strict security requirements. All movements and processing in the warehouse must therefore be monitored closely, as the consequences of damage to facilities or loss of stock could be catastrophic. A combination of c25, v25 and i25 hemispheric cameras, along with several MOBOTIX Dual D15 cameras, provides complete coverage of the 6,600-square-meter site. The new system provides full visibility of the warehouse aisles to protect both employees and customers should an incident occur. Tool for risk management A security system that enables monitoring of business processes and guarantees the availability of historical footage can help companies avoid facing expensive compensation claims. As such, the MOBOTIX system is an invaluable tool for risk management, compliance enforcement and dispute resolution. The stream of metadata generated alongside the video feed cannot be manipulated, which ensures that the images will hold up in a court of law. Moreover, this kind of security system even helps save money: Some insurance companies reduce their premiums when this kind of system has been installed.
