Where are video surveillance cameras headed? At the core of next-generation Internet Protocol (IP) cameras are advanced chips with artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge, enabling cameras to gather valuable information about an incident: scanning shoppers at a department store, monitoring city streets, or checking on an elderly loved one at home. Thanks to advanced chip technology, complex analytics operations are becoming more affordable across the full spectrum of surveillance cameras —professional to consumer — fueling the democratisation of AI in the IP camera market. Complex analytics operations are becoming more affordable across the full spectrum of surveillance cameras Expanding the global IP camera market The video surveillance equipment market grew to $18.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to increase this year, according to IHS Markit. The latest research points to video everywhere, edge computing, and AI as the top technologies that will have a major impact in both commercial and consumer markets in 2019. Computing at the edge means that the processors inside the camera are powerful enough to run AI processing locally, while still encoding and streaming video, and are able to do it all at the low-power required to fit into the limited thermal budget of an IP camera. New SoC chips will be able to perform all of the processing on camera and provide accurate AI information, with no need to send data to a server or the cloud for processing. Instead, data can be analysed right in the camera itself, offering high performance, real-time video analytics, and lower latency — all critical aspects of video surveillance. This new AI paradigm is made possible by a new generation of SoCs, a key driver behind the market growth of IP cameras. Complex analytics operations are becoming more affordable across the full spectrum of surveillance cameras to fuel the advent of AI in the IP camera market Micro-processor-enabled video analytics Next-generation video cameras will be able to create heat maps of stores to see where people spend the most time Microprocessor-enabled analytics allow users to more easily extract valuable data from video streams. How about an insider’s view into retail customer behavior? Consider video cameras at a department store, monitoring shoppers’ behavior, traffic patterns, and areas of interest. Next-generation cameras will recognise how long a shopper stays in front of a specific display, if the shopper leaves and returns, and if the shopper ultimately makes a purchase. Next-generation video cameras will be able to create heat maps of stores to see where people spend the most time, so retailers will be able to adjust product placement accordingly. Analytics will also help identify busy/quiet times of the day, so retailers can staff accordingly. By understanding customers’ behavior, retailers can determine the best way to interact with them, target specific campaigns, and tailor ads for them. Cue the coupons while the shopper is still onsite! Analytics will also help identify busy/quiet times of the day, so retailers can staff accordingly Fast processing for rapid response at city level City surveillance and smart cities are depending on advanced video surveillance and intelligence to keep an eye on people and vehicles, identify criminals, flag suspicious behavior, and identify potentially dangerous situations such as loitering, big crowds forming, or cars driving the wrong way.Quick local decisions on the video cameras are also used to help analyse traffic situations Quick local decisions on the video cameras are also used to help analyse traffic situations, adjust traffic lights, identify license plates, automatically charge cars for parking, find a missing car across a city, or create live and accurate traffic maps. Real-time HD video monitoring and recording When it comes to home monitoring, what will next-generation video surveillance cameras offer? Real-time monitoring and notification can detect if a person is in the back yard or approaching the door, if there’s a suspicious vehicle in the driveway, or if a package is being delivered (or stolen). Advanced video cameras can determine when notifications are and aren’t required, since users don’t want to be notified for false alerts such as rain, tree branches moving, bugs, etc. Next-generation video camera capabilities can also help monitor a loved one, person or pet, helping put families at ease if they are at work or on vacation. For example, helpful analytics may be used to detect if someone has fallen, hasn’t moved for a while, or does not appear for breakfast according to their typical schedule. City surveillance and smart cities are depending on advanced video surveillance and intelligence to keep an eye on people and vehicles, identify criminals, flag suspicious behavior, and identify potentially dangerous situations Next-gen IP cameras When evaluating next-generation IP cameras (cameras on the edge), look at the brains. These cameras will likely be powered by next-generation SoCs chips. Here is what this means to you: Save on network bandwidth, cloud computing and storage costs. There is no need to constantly upload videos to a server for analysis. Analysis can be performed locally on the camera, with only relevant videos being uploaded. Faster reaction time. Decisions are made locally, with no network latency. This is critical if you need to sound an alarm on a specific event. Privacy. In the most extreme cases, no video needs to leave the camera. Only metadata needs to be sent to the cloud or server. For example, the faces of people can be recognised in the camera and acted upon, but the video never reaches the cloud. The cameras can just stream a description of the scene to the server “suspicious person with a red sweater walking in front of the train station, has been loitering for the last 10 minutes, suggest sending an agent to check it out.” This could become a requirement in some EU countries with GDPR rules. Easier search. Instead of having to look through hours of video content, the server can just store/analyse the metadata, and easily perform searches such as “find all people with a red sweater who stayed more than five minutes in front of the train station today.” Flexibility/personalisation. Each camera at the edge can be personalised to work better for the specific scene it is looking at, compared to a generic server. For example, “run a heat map algorithm on camera A (retail) as I want to know which sections of my store get the most traffic; and run a license plate recogniser on camera B (parking lot) as I want to be able to track the cars going in/out of my parking lot.” No cloud computing required. For cameras in remote locations or with limited network bandwidth, users have the ability to perform all analytics locally, without relying on uploading video to a server/cloud. Higher resolution/quality. When AI processing is performed locally, the full resolution of the sensor can be used (up to 4K or more), while typically the video streamed to a server will be lower resolution, 1080p or less. This means more pixels are available locally for the AI engine so that you will be able to detect a face from a higher distance than when the video is streamed off camera. AI at the edge Professional-level IP cameras capable of performing AI at the edge are coming soon with early offerings making their debut at this year’s ISC West. As we enter 2020, we will begin to see the availability of consumer-level cameras enabling real-time video analytics at the edge for home use. With rapid technology advancement and increased customer demand, AI is on the verge of exploding. When it comes to image quality and video analytics, IP cameras now in development will create a next-generation impact at department stores, above city streets, and keeping an eye on our loved ones.
Las Vegas is a city that bombards you with choices: dozens of glitzy hotels and casinos, a plethora of restaurants and eateries to satisfy any craving and an endless variety of entertainment guaranteed to delight and amuse. With so many options, it’s hard to decide where to spend your time. The same goes for ISC West. Like the city in which it’s being hosted, ISC West 2019 is going to bombard you with more options than ever before. Dozens of new technologies and vendors as well as old familiar faces will be vying for your attention. With only three days, it’s nearly impossible to explore every booth and every vendor. Ultimately, you’ll want to focus your limited time on companies whose partnership can lead to your organisation’s long-term success. In that context, I’d like to suggest a few things to think about as you wend your way through this year’s tradeshow. The next wave in IP technology The fact that the whole world is going IP is nothing new. The network-based connectivity trend has been ongoing for more than 25 years. What’s changed is the nomenclature. Today it’s all about the Internet of Things (IoT). What was once exclusively an analogue-based video surveillance market has shifted predominantly over to IP For the security industry, the concept of IoT really began with connecting DVRs through a network. Then in 1996, IP cameras – the first true IoT devices – hit the market. Since then, what was once exclusively an analog-based video surveillance market has shifted predominantly over to IP, providing exceptional growth opportunity for any company wanting to be on the leading edge. Today, however, that market is relatively saturated and growing at a much slower rate. In response, consolidation of the market has started to accelerate. Many vendors are disappearing while a select few are becoming stronger. Though the IP video revolution is now a fait accompli, there are still a few ancillary security technologies that are just beginning to jump on the IP convergence bandwagon. I’m referring to two in particular: IP audio systems and IP intercom solutions. Like their IP video cousins, these relatively new IP systems are built on open platform standards and provide the same benefits for convergence as happened in the camera space: better scalability and ROI, more functionality, and easy integration with third party systems. The technology is a great complement to a customer’s existing IP surveillance system or an ideal replacement for an antiquated analogue audio system. So I’d recommend spending time at booths showcasing this technology. Listen to the crystal clear sound quality. Learn from the various vendors how easy IP audio systems are to custom configure, remotely manage and scale. And discover the different ways the IP technology can be used, from paging, public address and broadcasting background music to augmenting security systems and perimeter protection solutions. The potential markets that can benefit from this latest IP technology are wide and varied, everything from hotels, hospitals and transportation hubs to educational institutions and retail chains. So it’s well worth your time to take a look at this growing opportunity. AI has proven to dramatically improving the accuracy of Traffic Incident Detection analytics. But it’s too early in the game to assume that AI can be applied across the board Artificial intelligence: hype vs. reality Video intelligence or video analytics was the big trend a decade ago. But it quickly fizzled out when hype crashed into reality. In the ensuing years algorithms have greatly improved, leading to more reliable analytic performance. Now it’s commonplace for video surveillance solutions to include a wide range of analytics from motion detection and people counting to dwell time analysis, object left behind and license plate recognition. The latest hype to capture the imagination is self-learning systems, often referred to as Deep Learning and Artificial intelligence (AI) With analytics gradually becoming mainstream, the latest hype to capture the imagination is self-learning systems, often referred to as Deep Learning and Artificial intelligence (AI). These self-learning applications parse event data and use what they’ve learned from the experience to make determinations or predictions that can increase the accuracy of future alerts. Before you get swept up in all the big promises that have yet to prove deliverable, take time at ISC West to educate yourself about the current state of the technology. AI works well in some areas. For instance, AI has proven to dramatically improving the accuracy of Traffic Incident Detection analytics. But it’s too early in the game to assume that AI can be applied across the board. Talk to some of the AI vendors at ISC West to learn when and if AI might be right for your organisation’s analytic applications. See who has actual, field-proven solutions and who is just offering ideas that might take many years to prove useful in real applications. Connecting with the right partner Think of ISC West as the ultimate meet-and-greet. Look around the tradeshow floor and see who might by likely partners Choosing the right partner is as important in business as it is life. Think of ISC West as the ultimate meet-and-greet. Look around the tradeshow floor and see who might by likely partners. You’re sure to find a number of new companies entering the field this year. Also be sure to notice which companies are absent. Have they left the surveillance industry? Are they struggling financially and can no longer afford to show up? If you partnered with them in the past, where does that leave your business today? As you explore potential vendor relationships, make sure you not only look at the arc of their technology development, but also their long-term financial stability and the kind of support services they offer. Cybersecurity should be front and center on your radar, along with timely updates, product integration with your existing technology and ongoing training to gain the most benefit from your investment. Look into how eco-friendly the vendor’s products are, what they’re doing to recycle, minimise waste and lower their carbon footprint Think of ISC West as the ultimate meet-and-greet - look around the tradeshow floor and see who might by likely partners Another important thing to find out is whether their business ethics align with yours. Is sustainability important to your company? How about corporate social responsibility, diversity and inclusion? Ultimately you want to do business with healthy, innovative companies that share your core values. If being green is a fundamental principal of your company, look into how eco-friendly the vendor’s products are, what they’re doing to recycle, minimise waste and lower their carbon footprint. If striving for better global citizenship is your corporate mantra, you need to know how the vendor is assuring their operation complies with environmental laws and regulations. In terms of maintaining social and ethical standards, it’s important to know where the vendor stands on issues such as human rights violations, compulsory child labour, fair wages and sourcing minerals from countries in armed conflict. Go in with a plan There’s so much to discover at ISC West this year that four days isn’t nearly enough time to see it all. So you’ll have to strategically pick and choose which booths and vendors to visit. I’d advise that you plan out your days in advance so that you can get the most value from the choices you make.
There’s almost no installation that goes 100-percent smoothly in the field of video surveillance. Unexpected issues routinely arise that can increase time on the job, cost of the project and frustration. Manufacturers work on the product side to help ensure their products are easy to install and – when troublesome situations do arise – are flexible enough for installers to quickly find a remedy. Importance of ease of installation Ease of installation is a very important part of the project to the system integrator because the cost of labour is variable Ease of installation is a very important part of the project to the system integrator because the cost of labour is variable and can be very expensive. In some cases, the cost of labour to install a camera can be more than the cost of the camera! If labour costs are high – or are more expensive than a system integrator planned – they can lose a great deal of money on a project. If a cautious system integrator includes too high of an estimate for labour in a project bid, his overall bid will to high and it could cost him the project. The easier the camera is to install, the lower the labour cost, subsequently achieving higher savings for end-users. Hence it is essential that camera manufacturers develop products that are easy to install or are flexible in the field for system integrators and installers who know that time is money. Enterprise projects can involve thousands of cameras installed Simplifying installation of cameras Camera installation typically involves an electrician, the camera installer and the person who configures the VMS (Video Management Software). Of course, one person can play all three roles, and in many cases, does, but enterprise projects can involve dozens, hundreds or even thousands of cameras with teams of individuals involved in an installation. The electrician runs conduit with an electrical or PoE (Power over Ethernet) connection to the housing or the backplate of the camera; the installer then installs the camera at that location, hooking it up to power; and then a configurator adds cameras to the network and makes adjustments – renaming the camera, setting the frame rate, enabling WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), and the like. When it’s a project that involves different players for any of these functions, there is the potential for a bottleneck and delay in project completion. And if a system integrator is paying an electrician, installer and software configurator – and they are all three on site waiting for each other to finish – that’s a system integrator’s worst-case scenario. Enhancement through modular cameras Video surveillance camera manufacturers like Hanwha Techwin are producing products that take different roles Video surveillance camera manufacturers like Hanwha Techwin are producing products that take the different roles of electrician, installer and configurator into consideration, allowing them to complete their tasks independently. With a focus on modular design which includes a USB dongle, a device manager, magnetic module and included accessories, the Wisenet X series Plus is one of the fastest cameras to install, service and upgrade – saving installers time and money. Wisenet X series Plus cameras have a detachable camera module that utilise magnets to lock into the housing for instant configuration. Electricians can run conduit with a single PoE connection to the back plate/housing while the configurator is working on configuring the camera module, allowing security professionals to later snap the camera into place in just minutes. The VMS configurator can then come and add the cameras to the network and program their functionality. Modular cameras offer flexibility In the past, an end user might determine after the camera is installed that there aren’t enough pixels on target, or they need certain different functions like video analytics for example, resulting in the time-consuming replacement of the entire camera. With modular-designed cameras, the camera module can be swapped with a new one without having to focus or replace the camera – even to change the resolution or field of view, also Wisenet X series Plus has optional PTRZ modules that can be remotely adjusted to the field of view and the position of the camera lens. Making camera adjustments in the field is also now easier and perhaps even safer. Installers have been known to climb a ladder and juggle a bulky laptop to access the network to be able to see video of how the camera is positioned. Or they’ve had to use analogue video output to view the video feed on a separate monitor which provides the field of view, but not megapixel quality. Using a smartphone, the installer can wirelessly see full and not cropped quality video directly from the camera Wisenet X series Plus cameras have a USB port that allows installers to connect it to a small dongle that converts the camera to a Wi-Fi device. Using a smartphone, the installer can wirelessly see full and not cropped quality video directly from the camera. It’s a much easier way to evaluate video while at the camera. Eliminating the second person looking at live view on a computer guiding through a cellphone to the installer to accurately point the camera to the proper position. If system integrators can do some of the legwork prior to even getting on site, it can reduce cost and improve efficiency. Imagine having 300 cameras ready to send to a project site. To configure those cameras, a system integrator has to take each camera out of the box, plug each into a switch, configure it, take it off of the switch and put it back in the box. To improve this process, camera manufacturers have now developed packaging that provides access to the camera port without even having to remove it from the box. It’s an innovative solution that saves time. Modular cameras have optional PTRZ modules that can be remotely adjusted to the field of view Software programs help in enhancing installation Whether it’s a one-man show or a team of electricians, installers and configurators, software programs can greatly enhance the installation process. Device managers are important tools in adding multiple cameras to a project. Using that 300-camera project, for example, it’s easier when a manufacturer has a device manager that allows the mass programming and configuration of cameras. Adding 300 cameras one by one is time consuming and leaves room for error when making so many multiple entries. A device manager should be able to scan the network and locate its devices, allowing them to be grouped, configured and much more. Every video surveillance camera project is going to have its ups and downs. But camera manufacturers can do their part in the production process to address the many issues known to slow down progress. It’s impressive that many are taking the lead in producing innovations like modular camera design, flexibility in the field and accessible packaging that can truly reduce installation cost and improve efficiency.

246 X-Stream encoders will be installed at Manchester Airport to provide analogue video encoding and transmissionAs part of an ongoing £1m+ upgrade scheme, COE Group PLC has been chosen as a major supplier for an upgrade of Manchester Airport's CCTV network. Recognising the very important role that video information plays at international airports, the necessity to provide high quality and reliable video transmission at such sites is paramount. At Manchester Airport, COE's X-Stream range of video encoders has been selected by main contractor, Advanced Integrated Systems (AIS) to provide IP encoding of analogue video for digital transmission around the airport's local area network. Superior video quality and very low latency were key decision factors, which led to the decision to integrate COE equipment.COE X-Stream 400 multi-channel video encoders (also known as video servers) will provide digital encoding at the H.264 Main Profile standard to convert four channels of analogue video to compressed IP digital video for transmission across an Ethernet network. X-Stream encoders can convert up to 4 channels of analogue video each if box mounted or up to 56 channels if rack mounted. At Manchester Airport, 246 X-Stream encoders will be installed to provide as many as 984 channels of analogue video encoding and transmission for the airport, enhancing the functionality of existing analogue cameras, and providing a high performance, yet cost-effective IP upgrade path. The complete range of COE X-Stream video serversIan Jefferson, CEO of COE Group PLC comments: "The selection of COE's X-Stream video encoders for yet another major CCTV operation is testament to the exceptional performance of this equipment. When upgrading major sites, the necessity to maintain absolute operational control during and after the project is paramount. X-Stream video encoders offer best-of-breed performance to ensure the operator faces little adjustment to his daily activities to realise the benefits of the integrated IP transmission and recording solution."Offering ‘80ms latency and superior video quality to competitors' H.264 Base Profile and MPEG4 video encoders, X-Stream will offer the closest experience possible to analogue camera control for the operators at the Airport.

In addition, X-Stream encoders provide a road map for future analytics opportunities."
As the international awareness of terrorist threat has increased over recent years, the surveillance industry has seen willingness from global leaders to increase CCTV coverage in many areas. Terror attacks on rail networks, including the 7/7 bombings in London, the Madrid bombings in 2004 and the Mumbai bombings in 2006, have all contributed to the requirement for comprehensive CCTV coverage on all major rail networks. The demand for surveillance upgrades has been resilient through the global financial crisis proving that in uncertain times, maintaining safety and security is viewed as being more important than ever. As a video surveillance supplier specialising in products for the transport industry, COE's comprehensive range of video surveillance, transmission and management equipment has been installed in a number of high profile rail networks worldwide. COE products have increased surveillance coverage and assisted the activities of security professionals at these sites providing faultless highest quality video transmission year after year. COE have delivered solutions for major rail and metro networks worldwide, including the London Underground, France's SNCF network and Singapore's Mass Rapid Transit system. The Challenge The most recent project success by COE in the rail sector has been to provide a comprehensive upgrade of the video surveillance system for the Seoul Metropolitan Subway network in South Korea. This project provides a number of challenges, not least because of the extended network and intense usage endured by Seoul Metro. It is the third most heavily frequented metro system in the world with more passengers than either London or New York's respective networks, logging over 8 million journeys daily1 in and around the capital of South Korea. Due to the logistical constraints and expenses faced when performing network upgrades in tunnel environments, COE was faced with the challenge of providing a system which would not only transmit video over a limited existing fibre optic network, but which also would provide high levels of redundancy safe-proofing to prevent video and control loss, and potential downtime of the network. Another key challenge was the operators' requirement for instant access to highest quality real-time video at three separate control rooms across the network. Real-time access to uncompressed video is very important for rail networks where operators must give reactive decisions to support their observations, and also for the purpose of evidence provision in criminal prosecution. COE X-Net VI identifies suspect packages and activities with over 1000 cameras for the network The Optimum Solution COE's 20 year legacy of providing CCTV equipment proved invaluable in devising the optimum system specification for Seoul Metro. As the only video transmission provider to receive UK Network Rail approval for use of our products in safety critical applications, COE has a clear understanding of the requirements of security professionals in the transport sector, and has developed products specifically for use in rugged, demanding environments such as these. In total, equipment will be installed at 70 stations over lines 1, 3 & 4 of Seoul's Metro system, with a camera capacity of between 64 & 128 cameras at each station, bringing the total transmission & management capacity of the network to well over 8000 cameras. A common framework for COE IP and fibre transmission modules and a single comprehensive management solution will ensure that future expansion & development requirements for the network can be easily accommodated. To enable transmission of uncompressed video from such a large number of video channels from each station across Lines 1, 3 & 4, COE will deploy Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technologies to optimise the available fibres and to enable a high channel count across the network. This technology allows transmission of up to 144 channels of video over a single fibre, and is uniquely available across COE's entire fibre product range by using CWDM enabled Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) Optics with hot-pluggable optic ports integrated with our products. • • • • • Product Focus - Small Form-Factor Pluggable Optics SFP optical lasers have a large number of benefits over traditional fibre optic lasers, such as: Increases to network redundancy levels Drastically decreased repair time Decreased necessity for spares holding (as optics are interchangeable) Increased distance range of transmission Field upgrading to enable CWDM or transmission range enhancement. • • • • • By integrating SFP laser ports into their X-Net fibre products, COE have created a universal product set capable of fulfilling any project requirement requiring fibre optic transmission. COE's integration of SFP optics has also ensured a best of breed performance in delivering faultless video across networks which encounter high optical losses such as Seoul's Metro network. A key requirement for surveillance systems in rail operations is consistency of operation. Downtime can be costly and dangerous in this environment, and to ensure that any potential downtime is eliminated for Seoul Metro, COE will provide a product set with integrated redundancy safe-proofing technologies augmented by a project network design offering unparalleled levels of redundancy. Each station will have 64 - 128 cameras for lines 1, 3 & 4 to provide total surveillance of the sites Dual transmission rings, automatic transmission route-switching at point of failure, dual power sourcing and dual CPUs have all combined to ensure that both video and operational control over the network (including Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera control and camera switching), will never be affected by failure at single or multiple points across the network. This safe-proofing is reinforced by a fully redundant recording solution, introducing a hot-swap digital video recording server; to which recording is automatically switched should a unit fail in the system. This ensures video loss will not be encountered. Control for Seoul Metro is split over three dispersed control rooms, each gaining rights-based access to viewing from any camera at any point across the entire network should the need arise. Operators' activities will also be supported by up to over 1000 sets of electronic eyes; cameras enhanced by COE's X-Net VI automated intelligent video software. This intelligent analytical software is the latest development in CCTV network security. X-Net VI raises alarms relating to a large number of potential threats around the network by responding to a wide variety of rules based analytical processes. These rules have been developed to support CCTV operators' activities, and they include: Auto-tracking of PTZ cameras to monitor individuals. Alerting to suspicious packages abandoned in a station. Alerting to groups of individuals behaving suspiciously. Zone-alarms to register when an unauthorised person has entered a restricted area. Registering ticket barrier avoidance at a station. Rules can be combined to create comprehensive tracking and alarm management for a network. This new technology refines the role of the CCTV operator in security management of a site, and can greatly enhance his performance in incident identification and response. COE's Telecommand management solution is utilised for the management and recording solution of Seoul Metro 8000+ camera network. Modular expansion may also be undertaken at a later date to ensure the system can grow with the requirements across the network. Telecommand is also found in many other networks around the world, including urban CCTV networks of many cities throughout the United Kingdom. Ian Jefferson, CEO of COE Ltd comments of the project: "Systems of this size and complexity demand high reliability rugged products coupled to efficient operations. COE designs its solutions around these criteria whilst integrating state of the art techniques and technologies. COE is the only company that designs and manufactures a complete integrated solution for a fully redundant CWDM fibre optic video transmission system, video matrix system and integrated video analytics. This combination of technologies makes COE uniquely suited to fulfil the demands encountered when approaching large and complex projects such as this." Through maintaining a UK design and manufacturing base with field representation for projects around the world, COE provides highest quality video surveillance products whilst maintaining regional support for projects. Seoul Metro will see the benefits of their surveillance network upgrade for many years to come, and the new system will play a critical role in maintaining the highest standards of security over lines 1, 3 & 4 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway network. 1Jane's Urban Transport Systems, 2002-2003 edition
