IP cameras and software from eyewatch to be exhibited at Security Essen 2010
The two high-resolution camera systems are fully based on IT standard technologies
eyewatch GmbH, a German manufacturer of high-resolution intelligent IP video server cameras, presents two newly developed high-tech products for the first time at the Security Exhibition 2010 in Hall 7, Stand 923. The two high-resolution camera systems are fully based on IT standard technologies. For the first time this allows to migrate applications to the eyewatch camera platform which were previously reserved for centrally based servers.

eyewatch's aim is to develop camera systems which allow moving image analysis, intelligence and computational performance from the DVR/NVR to the camera. The user is allowed flexibility to install own and external software modules into the camera platform. The Linux system software allows transferring adapted applications directly to the eyewatch camera platform. This repeals limitations of centrally-based image evaluation. Evaluation and analysis will be performed locally and directly within the camera. First examples will be shown at the fair. In the future well-known video-analysis software providers will develop and offer appropriate solutions for the eyewatch platform.

eyewatch developed FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) which guarantees an optimal picture quality even under difficult environmental conditions. The cameras store in high resolution and without an external recording device, PC or network, loading the data directly to the integrated flash memory.

Both eyewatch cameras are positioned in the megapixel class. The high image quality is achieved by using two 5-megapixel sensors and are ideal for day and night use. The high picture quality is achievable even in difficult lighting conditions due to a fully integrated IR illumination unit, which is controlled synchronously by the camera.

eyewatch cameras support the extended POE standard and can be installed cost-effectively. They are extremely robust and weatherproof due to the absence of moving parts and the classification as IP65. An integrated microphone and a powerful speaker ensure full audio support.

The Video Software "eyewatch Manager"

At the Security Essen show eyewatch will present their video management solution. The Video Software "eyewatch Manager" manages cameras and alarms comfortably, making it the ideal partner for small and medium-sized application solutions without additional costs incurred for external VMS solution.

Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?
Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?

The general public gets much of its understanding of security industry technology from watching movies and TV. However, there is a gap between reality and the fantasy world. Understanding of security technologies may also be shaped by news coverage, including expression of extreme or even exaggerated concerns about privacy. The first step in addressing any challenge is greater awareness, so we asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: Which security industry technology is most misunderstood by the general public and why?

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?
Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?
What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras. During those years, VMSs have evolved from software that provides basic functionality to more user-friendly systems offering a growing list of capabilities, many of them related to analysing data as well as recording and displaying video. But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
