Geutebruck pictures a world with less data and higher service standards

The H.264 compression process is widely regarded as the most efficient video process for compressing moving images, because, with suitable computer resources, it can generate the lowest band widths for a given image resolution and quality.  However, most H.264 standard compression processes ignore the fact that large amounts of bandwidth and storage capacity could also be saved by avoiding the generation, transmission or storage of images (or extra resolution) which are not going to be required by the user.  This is a pity because it means that considerable wastage and unnecessary infrastructure costs are incorporated into video security systems. To appreciate the extent of this you only have to look at how many workstation monitors out there are being sent four Full-HD resolution data streams when they can actually only display four D1 or one Full-HD feed.  Geutebruck decided to do better. Going back to basics, but remaining within the H.264 standard, it produced H264CCTV, a process much better adapted to video security systems, their routine functions and the needs of their users. So, when H264CCTV is employed in a control centre, H264CCTV-supporting cameras send the four images for the workstation monitor in D1 resolution until such time as the operator asks for full screen display. Then the selected camera switches its data stream to full-HD and the others cease transmitting to the viewer. This eliminates unwanted images and unusable resolution, and slashes bandwidth and processing loads. The unusual way H264CCTV’s video frames are linked together helps it avoid many typical H.264 problems.  It doesn’t produce artefacts if an individual data package is lost in the network.  It doesn’t over-burden the display processor and hang up the system when cameras are switched. - Instead, its fast and easy decoding ensures that switching at 25fps is well within the processor’s comfort zone. - It doesn’t make viewing and investigation difficult with jumps or jerks, but always replays video with smooth motion, even fast forward, backwards and frame by frame. And, with H264CCTV, event searches don’t just offer you the nearest frame with metadata attached, but always deliver precisely the frame you asked for. Then there’s the costly compromise many H.264 system users have to make between recording more frames per second than they really need, or viewing fewer frames per second than they’d really like, or both.  This frustrating situation arises because the chained frame formations in most H.264 implementations make it impossible to discard individual frames to create streams with different picture rates for different purposes. On the other hand, the independent control of recording and live video qualities was a basic requirement in the design of the H264CCTV structure so it ensures that users can have dual streams with exactly the quality of service they require.

Geutebruck makes multi-standard video processing the new standard
Geutebruck makes multi-standard video processing the new standard

At Security Essen 2010, Geutebruck is showcasing the new re_porter-IP/SE, an entry-level IP server; the GeViScope-AS/R, a new high performance GeViScope-based video analysis platform; as well as a new independent SD card ‘Nano DVR' facility for their IP video sources VIPCAM-DN101/PX and CAM2IP. But perhaps the most significant development on their stand is the new generation of software for GeViStore and GeViScope platforms. Its new ‘omnibrid' multi-standard video processing enables M-JPEG and H.264-based standard as well as specialist video surveillance ones (MPEG4CCTV, H264CCTV) to be used in the same system. It supports the use of analogue, digital, megapixel, ONVIF-compliant and even 16/9 HD-format cameras. And its real-time signal trans-coding enables IP cameras to be used for Geutebruck video analysis processes without needing any additional integral functions. With new operating software, the boundaries are fluid - the future really is 'omnibrid'. The new re_porter-IP/SE is an ideal entry level solution for pure digital video surveillance systems. It supports up to 20 IP cameras and handles M-JPEG, MPEG4CCTV, H264CCTV as well as H.264 standard formats from many different kinds of digital video source. To reduce demands on networks and storage space the re_porter-IP/SE can process and store any data fed into it. It has 16 contacts for event-controlled recording and 8 relays for direct communication with third party systems.

Geutebruck’s new re_porter model with hot swap HDD for image evaluation outside the network
Geutebruck’s new re_porter model with hot swap HDD for image evaluation outside the network

Geutebruck’s new re_porter-IP/XRdB is designed as an attractive solution for situations where it is necessary or desirable to review image data outside the network. Its two 2TB hard disks are configured for RAID level 1 so they store identical data. One disk is built in, but the other sits in a sturdy hot swap mount which can be removed with the system still running. This hot swap facility enables you to evaluate the whole database at another station, completely separately, away from the CCTV system and the network. – The GSCSpeedView-XRdB evaluation and playback station has been specially conceived for this purpose. With one hard disk removed, the re_porter-IP/XRdB continues to operate storing all video data on its fixed disk until a new HDD is inserted and it can automatically mirror the data onto the new HDD. This system was developed to meet the particular needs of a video surveillance operator with remote sites where there is no network or where the video is to be reviewed by police or other third parties who have no access rights to the operator’s network.  If an incident is reported at a remote location monitored by the re_porter-IP/XRdB then the video surveillance operator informs the police or other security service provider. An officer goes to the site, taking along an empty hard disk unit. To swap the hard disks over, he presses the button on the front, waits a second or two until the flashing light goes out, then uses a special key to release the disk unit, which can then be pulled out and replaced with the empty one.  When the key is turned again and the button depressed, the system automatically mirrors the recorded video onto the new disk. The officer takes the recorded disk to the reviewing station where he just inserts the disk, turns the activation key and the recorded video material can be displayed.
