Hanwha Techwin America launches new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network fixed lens IR dome camera

Samsung Techwin has further strengthened its WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD (1080P) network camera range with the addition of a competitively priced fixed lens IR dome camera. The low price point of the SND-6011R makes it ideal for video surveillance projects, such as schools, hospitals, offices and retail stores where budgets may be restricted and yet there is a need to capture evidence grade images from a large number of cameras. The SND-6011R joins nine other camera models that incorporate the WiseNetIII DSP chipset and have been developed by Samsung as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded. The ONVIF compliant SND-6011R, which is equipped with a 3.8mm fixed lens, is a true Day/Night camera with an infra-cut filter.  It is designed to capture high quality colour images at an ultra-fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p.  Objects up to 10 metres distance from the camera can be viewed even in total darkness with the help of built-in IR LEDs. Utilising bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, the SND-6011R incorporates a multi-crop feature enabling users to highlight and crop up to nine areas of interest in order for the camera to only send the images within that area at a preferred resolution and frame rate. A full overview as well as multiple cropped images from the whole area, can if required, be transmitted simultaneously with this flexibility in the video's resolution and frame rate, allowing a much smarter and efficient use of the available network bandwidth. Samsung’s professional security products are widely accessible across Europe via an extensive network of distributors.

Hanwha Techwin America Techwin upgrade for IP Network cameras dynamically improves bandwidth usage
Hanwha Techwin America Techwin upgrade for IP Network cameras dynamically improves bandwidth usage

Samsung Techwin has introduced a firmware upgrade that has dramatically reduced the bandwidth and video storage requirements of the company’s IP network cameras, domes and encoders. “The Samsung Techwin software engineering team has devised some very clever improvements to our version of the H.264 method of compressing images and as a result, a much lower bitrate is required to transmit the high quality images captured by our HD megapixel cameras,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Our 3MP Full HD models, for example, previously needed a bit rate of 10Mbps, but now only require 3Mbps to ensure that there are no latency issues or that artefacts do not spoil the quality of the video when customers have configured the cameras to capture images at the highest possible resolution.”  The upgraded firmware, which applies to almost all of Samsung Techwin’s IP network models, can be downloaded free of charge by customers from the product section at www.samsungsecurity.co.uk. “The improvement in the bitrate is in itself a major benefit to our customers because it reduces the amount of bandwidth and storage required to operate an effective video surveillance system,” said Tim Biddulph. “The firmware upgrade however innovatively offers a lot more in terms of transmission efficiency in that it is able to dynamically adjust the transmission bitrate and compression settings depending on the level of activity that may be occurring within a camera’s  field of view. There is little need to transmit very high quality images of an empty building or car park at night, but when however there is activity this needs to be transmitted. Our upgraded firmware automatically takes this into account and adjusts the camera settings accordingly. This results in a much more efficient and effective use of the available bandwidth.”

Hanwha Techwin America Techwin introduces new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network vandal and extreme weather resistant dome camera

Samsung Techwin’s new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network vandal-resistant dome camera, the SNV-6084, is designed to work effectively in severe weather conditions as well as being resistant to physical attack. The SNV-6084, which is IK10 vandal resistant and weatherproof to IP66, can withstand high temperature variations of -50°C to +55°C, making it an ideal video surveillance solution in even the most challenging environmental conditions. The low price point of the SNV-6084 makes it ideal for video surveillance projects such as airports, ports, car parks, trading estates and open public spaces where there is a need to capture evidence grade images from a large number of cameras. Both the SNV-6084’s camera and its in-built heater can be powered by standard PoE (Power over Ethernet), negating the need for the installation of separate cables for power and image transmission, or additional costly midspans.  Equipped with a 3-8.5mm motorised varifocal lens, the ONVIF conformant SNV-6084 is a true Day/Night camera with an infra-cut filter. It is designed to capture high quality colour images at an ultra-fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p and features enhanced Wide Dynamic Range which with performance greater than 120dB can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas. In November 2013, Samsung Techwin will further broaden its WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network range with the introduction of the SNV-5084 vandal and extreme weather resistant dome camera. Equipped with a 1.3 megapixel camera, the SNV-5084 will share all the key features of the SNV-6084 which include bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, and a multi-crop feature enabling users to highlight and crop up to nine areas of interest in order for the camera to only send the images within that area at a preferred resolution and frame rate, enabling a much smarter and efficient use of the available network bandwidth. Other key features include Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), which negates the effects of vibration, and Defog which can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog. A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card. The SNV-5084 and SNV-6084 will both offer Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear and ‘tampering’, which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view. Alternatively, the motion detection technology built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset can greatly reduce the false alarm rate by learning what is the normal motion of the scene and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees. The SNV-6084 and SNV-5084 join 14 other camera models that incorporate the WiseNetIII DSP chipset. These have been developed by Samsung Techwin as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded.

Hanwha Techwin America’s new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD (1080P) network camera range on show at IFSEC 2013

The eight new WiseNetIII camera models have been developed by Samsung as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded. “Price is always an important consideration and it was also not a surprise to learn that customers wanted to see further improvements in image quality particularly in low light conditions,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Also high up on the wish list was smarter utilisation of network bandwidth and the need for cameras to be more installer friendly by making them easier to install and configure.” Samsung’s response to the feedback from its existing and potential customers has been to pack the new models, with a long list of new technically advanced features, many of which ensure that superb quality images can be captured and recorded regardless of the lighting or environmental conditions.  The new Full HD cameras and domes can capture high quality images when the lighting level is as low as 0.01 Lux, and have an ultra fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p which results in latency free clear images. The enhanced Wide Dynamic Range built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset, with performance greater than 100dB, can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas. P-iris technology optimises the iris when multiple lighting conditions exist within a single field of view to create images with better clarity and depth of field.  A Defog feature can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain or fog, whilst Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), previously only seen in analogue chipsets, negates the effects of a camera shaking due to high winds or building vibration. A Simple Focus feature, which is built into most of the models, automatically focuses the camera. All that is needed is one simple push of a button on the back of the camera to achieve optical focus. Collectively the eight new models are designed to offer a solution for every possible type of application. Samsung’s stand at IFSEC will be divided into various vertical market zones, such as retail, education, commercial and transportation, to allow visitors to identify the best combination of WiseNetIII cameras and domes to meet the requirements of specific projects. “Within each zone we will be able to demonstrate the key features of a specific camera model or recording device and how it can best help provide the solution to monitor what may be a range of activities within that market sector,” said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “In retail, for example, there are many different reasons why a video surveillance system may be deployed such as the need to deter and detect shop theft, ensure health & safety compliance and record activity in car parks, delivery bays and at the point of sale.” The eight new WiseNetIII models are: SNB-6004 - Bodied camera with Simple Focus, P-Iris & day/ night operation. SNB-6003 - Bodied camera with P-Iris & colour/ mono operation.

Hanwha Techwin America City at IFSEC 2011

Samsung's largest ever booth at IFSEC 2011, the international security exhibition which took place at the NEC, Birmingham on 16th-19th May, provided Europe's fastest growing security brand with the opportunity to give hands-on demonstrations of the latest video surveillance products and technologies.Unsurprisingly, a large number of end-users experts were particularly interested in the Samsung cameras which have an Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) capability. "Cameras which incorporate our WiseNet1 and SV-5 and DSP chipsets all feature IVA which provides a powerful tool to ensure that users achieve maximum benefit from surveillance systems deployed for a wide range of applications including car parks, industrial estates, petrol forecourts, schools, hospitals, retail parks, airports and ports," said James Smith, European Marketing Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd.Samsung's license-free Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) capability includes optical tripwire and enter/exit direction detection, as well as an Appear/Disappear function to detect the movement of objects. IVA also has a scene change tampering function which creates an alert if, for example, paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view."One of the cameras which attracted considerable attention was the SNP-5200 1.3 Megapixel high definition network PTZ dome camera, which incorporates a true day/night camera and features a 20x optical zoom lens," said James Smith. "Despite being competitively priced, it is packed full of features and is ‘bandwidth friendly' which makes it the ideal choice for a wide range of applications where a high definition PTZ dome is required as part of an IP based video surveillance system."The SNP-5200 utilises Samsung's WiseNet1 DSP chipset, allowing users to gain maximum benefit from the very latest megapixel camera technology, including license-free Intelligent Video Analytics and dual streaming H.264 / MJPEG compression, which provides the option to simultaneously transmit images to multiple locations at various frame rates and at different resolutions.At the same time, JPEG images of an incident can be attached to an alarm email notification with the additional facility of storing pre and post-alarm images on a camera's internal SD memory card. What is more, dual Ethernet and BNC connectivity provides an upgrade path for hybrid security systems and allows it to be easily set up using standard test monitors.Samsung's DSP chipsetsThere is a large diversity of reasons why surveillance cameras are used and an equally large number of different environments where cameras may physically be installed. Recognising that trying to pack every possible function onto a single DSP chipset is not economical or practical, Samsung's design engineers have developed a series of chipsets each with a set of functions to provide the optimum solution for specific types of applications and projects.

All models in the Samsung 7002 Professional series are able to capture images at a broad range of resolutions from 320 x 180 to 2048 x 1536 and include Full HD 1080p resolution displayed in 16:9 format. An advanced Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) feature ensures that everything in a scene can be clearly seen, even when images contain both very bright and very dark areas, whilst Progressive Scan technology negates motion blur and ensures sharp edges on moving subjects and vehicles. “The specifications for the new 7002 Professional series take into account the requirements of end-users who want a lot more from a high definition camera other than evidence grade images, and they also reflect the needs of installers,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “A Simple Focus feature, for example, automatically focuses the camera. All that is needed is one simple push of a button on the back of the camera to achieve optical focus. This will obviously result in reduced installation time. However, there is an additional advantage offered by this very clever feature in that when the camera mode changes from colour to monochrome with the help of the camera’s true Day & Night function, the Simple Focus automatically optimizes the back focus required for clear sharp images.” The 7002 Professional series is supported by many of the leading Video Management Software (VMS platforms as well as Samsung’s Centralized Monitoring Software. Other key features which are common to all models include facial detection and audio detection with the use of an external microphone . Also included is Intelligent Video Analytics which provides Motion Detection, Appear/Disappear, Virtual Line/Enter/Exit detection and a camera tampering alarm function.The new cameras and domes support multi-streaming of video using either H.264 and MJPEG compression and can therefore be simultaneously used for real-time monitoring, mobile monitoring, high quality or high-efficiency recording, SD memory recording and for E-mail notification purposes.“With the launch of the 7002 Professional series and our LiteNet range of  ‘affordable’ megapixel and HD cameras and domes earlier in the year, we can now truly claim to be able to offer customers a high definition  video surveillance solution for virtually any type of project,” said Tim Biddulph. “Customers can also take advantage of the fact that both series are compatible with our recently introduced SRN-1000 network video recorder which has been designed to offer a ‘building block’ approach to the process of specifying a video storage solution.”

Hanwha Techwin America introduces 4CIF WDR network camera range
Hanwha Techwin America introduces 4CIF WDR network camera range

Samsung’s new 4CIF WDR network camera range is designed to provide a competitively priced alternative option to megapixel cameras for video surveillance projects where very high quality images are required. Schools, hospitals, offices, factories, warehouses and  retail stores are just a few of the environments that  could benefit from the new 4CIF range which comprises the SNB-3002 boxed camera, the SND-3082 dome, the SND-3082F flush mounted dome and the SNV-3082 vandal resistant dome. “Customers’ expectations nowadays are very high in terms of the quality of the images they can expect to see captured by security cameras,” said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd.  “For the vast majority of applications it would seem unnecessary however to incur the cost of installing megapixel cameras when cameras such as those in our new 4CIF camera range, if positioned correctly,  are more than capable of generating evidence grade images. Apart from the capital cost savings which could be significant on large projects where a high number of cameras are required, 4CIF cameras are also far more bandwidth friendly than megapixel when images need to be viewed over a network.” The 4CIF camera range features Power over Ethernet which can reduce installation costs by providing both power and video/audio transmissions via a single Ethernet cable. It also offers multiple streaming, with a choice of MJPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264 compression methods, providing the option to simultaneously transmit images to multiple locations at various frame rates up to 25 frames per second, and at different resolutions. This allows different authorised users to monitor live images at one location, whilst recording video evidence at another. At the same time images can be saved onto an on-board SD memory card and email notifications of any incidents sent to a smartphone. The new models in the 4CIF network camera range incorporate Samsung’s A1 DSP chipset and are able to capitalise on Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology, which makes them ideal for locations where there may be strong contrasting lighting conditions. They also feature Progressive Scan which optimises high quality video capture of moving objects, making it possible, for example, to read car number plates without a motion blur effect.  All four models have a true Day/Night function with infra-cut filter and a CCD image sensor which equips them to capture high quality colour images when lighting is as low as 0.001 Lux with Sens-up and monochrome images at 0.0001 LUX with Sens-up. As well as standard motion detection, the Samsung’s 4CIF cameras have a scene change tampering feature which creates an alert if, for example, paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view. A bi-directional audio function offers effective two-way communication. 12 individual polygonal Privacy Zones ensure that windows, for example, in residential properties cannot be viewed, whilst Digital Image Stabilisation (DIS) can negate the effects of the camera shaking due to high winds or building vibration. As is the case with all Samsung professional security products, the 4CIF WDR network camera range is supplied with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.

IP Dome cameras - Expert commentary

Live-streaming mobile surveillance takes cameras to the action
Live-streaming mobile surveillance takes cameras to the action

Video surveillance across the world is growing exponentially and its major application is in both public safety and law enforcement. Traditionally, it has been fixed surveillance where cameras provide live streams from fixed cameras situated in what is considered strategic locations. But they are limited in what they can see given by their very definition of being "fixed." The future of video surveillance includes the deployment of more mobile video surveillance with the benefits it offers. Instead of fixed cameras, this is the ability to live stream from mobile devices on the move such as body-worn cams, drones, motorbikes, cars, helicopters and in some cases, even dogs!Sending drones into the air, for example for missing people or rescue missions, is much more cost-effective than deploying helicopters Advantages of mobile surveillance The advantage of mobile surveillance is that the camera can go to where the action is, rather than relying on the action going to where the camera is. Also, sending drones into the air, for example for missing people or rescue missions, is much more cost-effective than deploying helicopters. The ability to live stream video from cars and helicopters in high-speed pursuits can be used to take some of the operational issues from the first responders on the ground and share that “life and death” responsibility with the operational team leaders back in the command centre. This allows the first responders in the pursuit vehicle to focus on minimising risk while staying in close proximity of the fleeing vehicle, with direction from a higher authority who can see for themselves in real time the issues that are being experienced, and direct accordingly. In addition to showing video live stream from a pursuit car or motorcycle, by using inbuilt GPS tracking, the video can be displayed on a map in real time, allowing a command chief to better utilise additional resource and where to deploy them, through the use of displaying mapping information with real time video feed. It allows police chiefs to make better informed decisions in highly-charged environments. The 4G phone network can now be used with compressed video to live stream cost effectively Application in emergency situations The same is true of first responders in many different emergency situations. Mobile surveillance opens up a new area of efficiencies that previously was impossible to achieve. For example, special operations can wear action body-worn cameras when doing raids, fire departments can live stream from emergency situations with both thermal and daylight cameras, and paramedics can send video streams back to hospitals allowing doctors to remotely diagnose and prepare themselves for when patients arrive at the hospital. How can special operations and emergency first responders live stream video from a mobile camera with the issues of weight, reliability and picture-quality being considered? H265 mobile video compression Law enforcement insists on secure transmissions, and it is possible to encrypt video to the highest level of security available in the public domain The 4G phone network can now be used with compressed video to live stream cost effectively. The issue of course is that 4G is not always reliable. Soliton Systems has mitigated this risk of low mobile quality in certain areas, by building an H265 mobile video compression device that can use multiple SIM cards from different cellular providers simultaneously. H265 is the latest compression technique for video, that is 50% more effective than conventional H264, and coupling this with using multiple “bonded” SIM cards provides a highly reliable connection for live-streaming high-quality HD video. The 400-gram device with an internal battery can be connected to a small action cam, and can live-stream simultaneously over at least three different cellular providers, back to a command centre. Latency is typically less than a second, and new advance improvements are looking to reduce that latency further. Encrypted video transmission What about security? Law enforcement insists on secure transmissions, and it is possible to encrypt video to the highest level of security available in the public domain, i.e. AES256.What about integration into existing video infrastructure at the command centre? It is not untypical for a police force to have an existing video management system (VMS) at their command centre such as Milestone System’s Xprotect. The Soliton range of products are ONVIF-compliant, a standard used by video surveillance cameras for interoperability, allowing cameras and video devices that are ONVIF-compliant to simply “plug&play” into existing video management systems. These mobile transmitters are deployed with law enforcement and first responders across the globe. Their ability to provide secure, full HD quality and highly-reliable video streaming within a small unit, and to enable it to be integrated into the current eco-system that is already installed at the receiving end, has made them a favourite choice with many companies and government agencies.

Impact of sophisticated IT technologies on the security market
Impact of sophisticated IT technologies on the security market

Over the course of the past few months, I have discussed a myriad of topics, from Big Data, the Internet of Things and emerging video surveillance-use cases, to analytics, storage complexities and IT technologies like virtualisation and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). All of these trends have a significant effect on the security market, and in April they were highlighted in spades at ISC West. It’s great to talk about these trends but it’s far better to see how they are being leveraged in real-world applications. That’s really where we can all see the true value of new solutions and concepts. We’re lucky enough to work with some leading organisations that want others to benefit from their experience and I’m happy to have the opportunity to share two of these applications with you. Protecting educational facilities UCF has adopted advancements in technology, particularly video surveillance solutions, to help ensure stronger security on campus Educational institutions face an increasingly complex risk environment. Recent high-profile incidents emphasise these risks and magnify the vulnerabilities that educational facilities face. These incidents have led to more public demand for improved security solutions across campuses. The primary mission of these organisations is to deliver quality education to students, and they face the challenge of balancing between a highly secure facility and one that supports open interaction. The University of Central Florida is no different. This organisation, one of the largest universities in the country, has adopted advancements in technology, particularly video surveillance solutions, to help ensure stronger security on campus. Active shooter incidents In March 2013, UCF faced an active shooter situation in which a former student planned to pull the fire alarm in a residence hall and then attack his classmates as the building was evacuated. However, the shooter’s gun jammed, and as officers were closing in on the gunman, he took his own life. During the university’s response to the incident, accessibility to critical video data was a major issue. Educational institutions face an increasingly complex risk environment UCF had cameras in the area where the incident took place, but first responders had no way of viewing the footage without being at the physical location of the video recorder. At the time, UCF had a wide variety of standalone systems in place, including non-integrated video surveillance, access control and intrusion systems. As a result, there was no way to centralise video management, viewing and analysis. Upgrading from analogue systems Altogether, its security system consisted of older analogue platforms that were reaching end of life, 58 standalone servers, 12,000 access points and a wide variety of DVRs — all being managed in a siloed manner. UCF needed a solution that would allow officials to centralise system management, store video data more effectively and reliably, and enable the security team to deliver situational awareness to responders when needed. Security leaders sought a way to further modernise its security, surveillance, access control and IT infrastructure The university deployed an HCI solution, one that is optimised for demanding, data-intensive workloads like video surveillance. Using standard off-the-shelf server hardware, the system aggregates the storage and compute resources from multiple servers into a single unified pool that all cameras can access, which maximises performance and storage capacity utilisation. The platform also hosts the university’s video management solution, which serves as a centralised source to manage video and effectively protect its security data. Because of the growing demand for video across UCF's campuses — for both safety and business purposes — the HCI solution’s ability to eliminate the opportunity for data loss and easily scale were key components in its selection. Protecting air travel and airports In 2012, Charleston International Airport embarked on an ambitious upgrade project dubbed the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program. The $200 million initiative was designed to modernise and expand the facility to meet increased passenger demand. While the aesthetics and amenities of the airport were under construction, security leaders sought a way to further modernise its security, surveillance, access control and IT infrastructure. The IT and security teams needed to address the challenges of their existing standalone server environment, which included siloed systems, management complexity and high administrative and equipment costs. Charleston International Airport embarked on an ambitious upgrade project dubbed the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program Considering the high value of the airport’s video, security and IT data, it required a solution that could deliver reliable data protection, system resiliency and fault tolerance. The airport is required to store video for 30 days, but it seeks to expand its retention time to 60 days. Therefore, technology that can scale simply was key in the selection process. Storage system updates It also required a storage platform that could manage the demanding and write-intensive nature of its nearly 250 IP surveillance cameras — a challenging task for traditional video recorders. The airport deployed HCI appliances to better manage captured video data and expand its archive capability for video surveillance. Users rely on video to validate whether something did or did not happen - and this is essential in airports HCI surveillance solutions are designed to provide industry-leading resiliency. Even if multiple hardware failures occur, including an entire appliance, video management servers will remain online and recording, and any previously recorded video will continue to be protected and accessible. Reducing expenses and costs The solution also reduced total cost of operations by consolidating servers, storage and client workstations into one enterprise-class solution that is easily managed from a single user interface, without the need for specialised IT skills. These use cases demonstrate the value emerging technologies bring to these types of modern environments. And they show that solutions like HCI are no longer simply much-talked about technology trends. Video, IT and security data is critical to organisations of all types and they need to ensure their investment in capturing this data is protected. From a security standpoint, users rely on video to validate whether something did or did not happen. If that video data isn’t protected, they lose a very valuable investigative tool. That isn’t an option in today’s complex environment. That’s is why it is paramount to understand how new technologies can help expand current capabilities and evolve security operations. This can’t be left to chance.

4K analogue cameras are still an ideal solution for video surveillance systems
4K analogue cameras are still an ideal solution for video surveillance systems

One of the toughest business decisions companies need to make is when selecting a new video surveillance system, as it’s a rigorous process to compare camera offerings and technologies, and to evaluate price structures. With its proven performance over the last several years, IP surveillance systems have become the defacto standard for most professionals. Those experts typically cite the numerous benefits that IP cameras offer, including higher image resolution, ease of installation, scalability, and analytics as rationale – which are all valid. However, the biggest drawback is the high price tag when considering making the switch from an analogue to a dedicated IP surveillance system. In reality, many end users don’t need networked IP cameras in every location throughout their facility, as the additional features and benefits IP cameras typically provide may not be necessary in every location. Ultimately, the decision to stick with analogue or move to IP needs to be based on your surveillance objectives and future needs. Advantages of 4K Consider this – you’re managing an analogue surveillance system and your primary goal is to increase image resolution; 4K analogue cameras may be your ideal solution. Advanced 4K analogue surveillance cameras deliver a myriad of advantages, including: Superior resolution Lower cost and easy installation. Picture clarity even under changing or difficult lighting conditions Models with 2 and 4 megapixel resolution, such as Dahua’s HDCVI 4K cameras with scalable HD-over-coax technology, provide security professionals with greater situational awareness and are available in multiple form factors to provide exceptional quality video & audio for a wide range of surveillance applications.Since 4K analogue cameras are not connected to an IP network, they do not present the cybersecurity risks that are typically associated with IP cameras Greater distance, greater definition Another benefit of 4K analogue cameras is that their higher number of pixels provides increased digital zoom performance without pixilation versus traditional HD or 2K cameras. This allows security operators to see further into the distance with greater definition. The added resolution is especially important for popular applications that require higher levels of detail, such as face and licence plate recognition or object analysis, as well as emerging video analytics and artificial intelligence applications for future system enhancements. 4K analogue applications 4K analogue cameras are also ideally suited to cover large fields of view such as in sports stadiums or airports with great detail and accurate colour reproduction. Their superior digital zoom capabilities can allow 4K analogue cameras to do the work of two cameras – one for a wide view and another for close-up – without sacrificing quality or compromising security. This can also help dramatically reduce hardware and installation cost, and simplify video monitoring. Finally, since 4K analogue cameras are not connected to an IP network, they do not present the cybersecurity risks that are typically associated with IP cameras. With the ever-increasing amount of sensitive and personal information stored on networked drives at businesses of all types, the value of removing one more potential network entry point cannot be understated. Overall, with 4K analogue cameras, security professionals can take advantage of higher resolution video on an existing, cost-effective platform that’s safe from network intruders with isolated and limited installation downtime and exceptional cost-efficiencies.
