Autonomous IP video surveillance solutions set to dominate commercial security in the Middle East

Artificial Intelligence will play an important role in the Middle East commercial security market’s future, as interconnected video surveillance systems and autonomous IP-based solutions become the norm, said the boss of a global video surveillance manufacturer. Gaurav Khemka, the Director of CP PLUS, said mining scores of data to find answers and facilitate prompt decision making has become simpler with the help of video analytics and digital surveillance, solving multiple problems across a range of applications, from small retail outlets to high-level government intelligence agencies. Video analytics to benefit multiple sectors CP PLUS is one of more than 1,300 exhibitors from 59 countries at the upcoming Intersec 2019 exhibition in Dubai“There are countless opportunities and problems waiting to be solved by video analytics, as the computing power of IP cameras continues to improve,” said Khemka. “Benefits will be seen across multiple sectors, from assisting intelligence agencies to local retail outlets, and perhaps, in the future, a fully predictive surveillance system may be a reality.” CP PLUS is one of more than 1,300 exhibitors from 59 countries at the upcoming Intersec 2019 exhibition in Dubai, the world’s leading trade fair for security, safety, and fire protection. Khemka said the company has completed numerous projects in the Middle East, last year, highlighting the UAE’s Landmark Group as one of its flagship references. IP Cameras for Landmark’s retail outlets “The Landmark Group is a multinational conglomerate involved in consumer retail while it also has interests in hospitality and leisure, healthcare and mall management,” added Khemka. Round the clock surveillance was a major requirement for Landmark Group’s vast network of retail outlets, and CP PLUS provided more than 1,500 IP cameras for this purpose.  While retail is one industry vertical that has benefitted from the value-added offerings of integrated security systems and video analytics, Khemka said almost all other industry verticals are now catching on: “Today security has transcended from a need for safety to that of value addition and an enabler for people and processes,” Khemka said. Integration with fire and alarm systems CP PLUS will put the spotlight on its Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things based technologies at Intersec 2019“When integrated with other aspects of security such as fire and alarm systems, it can not only create a complete security ecosystem but also a huge support for managing operations and manpower. As such, all verticals, be it banking, education, hospitality, law enforcement, real estate, retail, or transportation, have identified with the need and adopted it wholeheartedly.” CP PLUS will put the spotlight on its Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things based technologies at the 21st edition of Intersec, which takes place from 20-22 January at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. It will line-up alongside more than 500 global solutions providers in the three-day event’s Commercial Security section, the largest of seven dedicated show sections that include Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Physical & Perimeter Security, Information Security, and Smart Home & Building Automation. GESAB at Intersec 2019 Spanish company GESAB is another international player in the Commercial Security section looking to build its network with key regional decision makers of security and defence-related projects. EC3 is one of the world’s largest and most modern control centres, tasked with monitoring Dubai’s mass transit network  A returning exhibitor to Intersec in 2019, GESAB specialises in technical solutions for the design, manufacture and installation of both control centre and data processing centre projects. The Madrid-based company was involved in the Dubai RTA’s (Roads and Transport Authority) new Enterprise Command and Control Centre (EC3). Opened in 2017, EC3 is one of the world’s largest and most modern control centres, tasked with monitoring Dubai’s mass transit network, including the Dubai Metro, Dubai Tram, public buses, taxis and marine transit systems.  Developing technical furniture for EC3 project Fernando Cajal, International Sales Manager for GESAB in the Middle East, said GESAB’s role in EC3, which came through a contact made at Intersec, was to develop the technical furniture for the Main Control Room, Security OCC, Tram back up room, IT SOC Room, Lecture Room, and Gold and Silver Rooms. “EC3 is an unparalleled project for facilities where the future becomes a reality today,” said Cajal. “It’s also an example of why the security industry contributes the greatest number of projects to GESAB, and why the Middle East is a reference market due to its capacity to generate constant business and large-scale projects.” GESAB will showcase at Intersec 2019 its own custom designed and manufactured range of technical furniture and control consoles, along with its Dynamic IP-based KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) system called DeskWall. Importance of video and analysis systems GESAB will showcase at Intersec 2019 its Dynamic IP-based KVM system called DeskWall Cajal said CCTV platforms and control centres are used for the control and management of security, both in the private sphere and in public spaces, adding: “It’s in this sense that video and analysis systems are of vital importance.   “The future related to digital surveillance and video analytics, in regards to our expertise, is of control rooms where the tasks are developed in a collaborative integrated way but in individual ergonomic work positions that have the capacity to operate with technologies such as big format screens and high-efficiency digital KVM solutions like DeskWall.” Many more of the world’s leading security solutions providers have also confirmed their participation at the 21st edition of Intersec, including 18 of the global top 20, such as Hikvision, Assa Abloy, Axis Communications, Flir Systems, Hanwha Techwin, Avigilon, Infinova, Nedap, IDIS, and Milestone Systems. Commercial security market growth All of these have also enjoyed considerable success in the Middle East commercial security market that, according to analysts 6Wresearch, will grow by nearly 17 percent annually over the next six years, valuing US$7.4 billion in 2024, compared to an estimated US$2.9 billion in 2018. With 75 percent of the regional market in 2017 (US$1.87 billion), video surveillance is by far the largest product segment, followed by access control (US$367 million), and intrusion detection (US$262 million). The two Gulf nations of Saudi Arabia and the UAE are the largest contributors to the Middle East commercial security market  Retail and banking currently hold the lion’s share of the regional market by industry verticals according to 6Wresearch, with an 8.6 percent (US$249 million) and 7.5 percent (US$217 million) share respectively. Meanwhile, the two Gulf nations of Saudi Arabia and the UAE are the largest contributors to the Middle East commercial security market, with Saudi Arabia holding a 31 percent stake (US$899 million), and the UAE 24 percent (US$696 million). Showcasing AI and automation technologies Andreas Rex, Intersec’s Show Director, said: “The Middle East commercial security market has evolved significantly over the years and Intersec exhibitors in this area have always stayed ahead of the curve when it comes to presenting new technologies and innovations for varied end-user verticals, from retail and hospitality, to banking, transport, government, aviation, and smart city concepts. “New-age solutions are all about automation, AI, and resource efficiency, and Intersec 2019 will showcase a wide spectrum of the latest developments in the commercial security sector.” Intersec 2019 returns early next year with a revamped conference line-up, including a three-day Intersec Future Security Summit raising key issues on Artificial Intelligence, security integration, emergency preparedness and response, data protection, IoT and much more.
