Future of video security

The IoT is changing the way we view video security, quite literally. Now, cameras need to be so much more than devices with which to simply capture images; they need to be far smarter than that. Today cameras are becoming an integral part of the vast digital connectivity infrastructure, they need to be shaped into intelligent sensors that have the ability to extract invaluable data to help businesses make improvements in the area of video security, and beyond. At INTERSEC Bosch introduces her latest “i” camera portfolio. This intelligent camera portfolio with built-in video analytics as standard will rewrite the rules of video security.

The ‘i’ cameras

These intelligent cameras with built-in video analytics as standard will rewrite the rules of video security. Basic requirements have not been dismissed. Highest image quality, bitrate management (reductions by up to 80 percent) and data security will always be a priority. It’s the added intelligence and connectivity that sets them apart from conventional cameras and makes them truly intelligent.

The ‘i’ camera portfolio consists of the IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i fixed dome and bullet cameras, the AUTODOME IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 5000i IR moving cameras and MIC IP starlight 7000i and MIC IP fusion 9000i cameras.

These truly intelligent ‘i’ cameras are capable of:

  • Interacting and sharing information with other devices
  • The ability to perform tasks independently
  • Detailed interpretation for situational awareness – object speed, direction, color, size etc.

IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i cameras

A completely renewed portfolio with fixed dome and bullet cameras. From retail to industrial solutions, a smart combination of these cameras offers solutions for indoor or outdoor, day or night, discrete or visible video security. With built-in video analytics as standard, they offer the ability to start repurposing captured video data for other uses than security alone.

The new Bosch AUTODOME moving cameras give the ability to locate, track and zoom in on objects quickly and easily

AUTODOME IP 4000i, 5000i and 5000i IR

These moving cameras give the ability to locate, track and zoom in on objects quickly and easily. With a resolution of 1080p combined with 30x optical zoom, users can easily identify objects over large distances, offering total control of what they choose to see. The new AUTODOME IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 5000i IR cameras from Bosch now add metadata to all captured video images. This data can be used to improve security by automatically alerting users once pre-defined criteria are met or for other uses beyond security.

MIC IP starlight 7000i and MIC IP fusion 9000i

The true potential of the MIC IP moving cameras is the combination of their rugged design with built-in Intelligent Video Analytics that is specifically designed for the most demanding environments. Even in the most extreme conditions, video data can be interpreted directly at the source to further improve the level of security or enable the video data to do more than security alone.

The new MIC IP fusion 9000i offers a unique feature in terms of video analytics: metadata fusion. It fuses the metadata of the camera’s built-in optical and thermal imager, providing users with full situational awareness - regardless of whether it’s the optical or thermal video stream that’s being watched. Metadata fusion helps users to focus on ‘invisible’ things that need attention.

Another innovation offered by both MIC IP models is video analytics in motion. An operator is alerted, or the camera’s Intelligent Tracking feature is triggered, the moment a moving object or person is detected while the MIC IP camera is panning, tilting or zooming.

Has the gap closed between security fiction and security reality?
Has the gap closed between security fiction and security reality?

Among its many uses and benefits, technology is a handy tool in the fantasy world of movie and television thrillers. We all know the scene: a vital plot point depends on having just the right super-duper gadget to locate a suspect or to get past a locked door. In movies and TV, face recognition is more a super power than a technical function. Video footage can be magically enhanced to provide a perfect image of a license plate number. We have all shaken our heads in disbelief, and yet, our industry’s technical capabilities are improving every day. Are we approaching a day when the “enhanced” view of technology in movies and TV is closer to the truth? We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How much has the gap closed between the reality of security system capabilities and what you see on TV (or at the movies)?

The five questions bank security and IT leaders need to answer about cybersecurity
The five questions bank security and IT leaders need to answer about cybersecurity

Organisations across the world face a new risk paradigm: one that encompasses cyber and physical threats. We’ve heard the stories associated with ATM skimming, identity theft, data breaches, scams, and phishing. Large financial services organisations are often the victim of hackers looking to steal corporate information and transactional data or funds, and criminals continue to become more sophisticated in their approach. Growth in cyber-attacks Additionally, cyber-threats have taken a front seat in the line-up of primary risks facing financial institutions today. And it is no surprise why: according to Cybersecurity Ventures, the amount of money taken in cyber heists, both in banking and elsewhere, was estimated at $3 trillion overall for 2015, and this substantial amount is expected to double by 2021. Cyber-attacks are becoming more prevalent, more complex and harder to address The fact that cyber-attacks are becoming more prevalent isn't the only issue; they're also becoming more complex and therefore harder to address. And although the convenient interconnectivity of the Internet of Things (IoT) creates many advantages for financial institutions, with that also comes an increased risk to dangerous threats. In today’s environment, banks, credit unions, and financial organisations of all types are primary targets for hackers. But it’s not just the monetary loss that these businesses need to be concerned about — there is also a threat to the brand, customer trust, and employee safety. All of these challenges and complexities open the door to new conversations and risks. Here are the top five critical questions today’s bank leaders need to be ready to answer. Should we collaborate to mitigate these threats effectively? Over the last decade, the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and a demand for more mobile capabilities has changed the way people and businesses connect. But as the need for connectivity increases, so too does the need for increased security for physical assets, networks, and valuable corporate data. As a result, a dialogue between IT and physical security is necessary to help leaders gain a greater knowledge of how to best collaborate to ensure complete protection. Leaders must communicate closely to drive strategies that help identify vulnerabilities in a more proactive manner. The result of these conversations: a truly comprehensive approach to security intelligence. It’s not just the monetary loss that banks need to be concerned about – there is also a threat to customer trust and employee safety How can I pinpoint the important data for addressing cyber threats? To maintain a high level of security and ensure business continuity around the globe, companies seek solutions that help predict and identify threats in real time. But often, there are too many alerts generated by too many systems, and none of this raw data is actionable. Linking cyber and physical security together transforms alerts into actionable intelligence, which helps users connect the pieces of any situation and present a unified risk scenario to the appropriate analysts and operators. By capturing and analysing data in real time, enterprise organisations gain a visual representation of risks across the business while accessing information related to the most critical events happening at any given time. Not only does this unified process enable a higher and more proactive level of protection, but it also helps facilitate a plan of action based within a common, unified security operations centre. How can I inform of the importance of cybersecurity? Security leaders in banks need to feel prepared by staying updated, looking at common vulnerabilities, understanding the malware and challenges, and testing the environment. And collaboration is key to mitigation: Traditional security and fraud teams must work in conjunction with cyber teams to effectively handle all aspects of a cyber-attack. Additionally, CISOs need to “sell” cybersecurity to CEOs and the board by outlining the importance of protection through emphasising the impact of a potential cyber-attack on the business. Ensure you can verbally address the most critical risks to your senior leadership, including recent botnets, scams, and cyber gangs, to receive the support, and budget you need to address these threats head on. Is my system secure? It is critical that you are knowledgeable about the steps you can take to protect your security and network infrastructure from cyber-attacks. A firewall is useful to prevent hackers from accessing critical data on internal networks and computers Changing default passwords should be a first step, as some scams target devices with hard-coded factory defaults. Ensure software and firmware is up to date because updates often include fixes for potential vulnerabilities. These updates keep your devices and network more secure and increase overall system uptime. A firewall is useful to prevent hackers and unauthorised programs from accessing the critical business information and resources on internal networks and computers. Also, minimise potential risk by closing network ports and disabling services you don’t need. With all of these instances, it is best to work closely with your integrator partner and chosen vendor to ensure that your system is as secure as it can possibly be. What solutions are best to help mitigate risks? Technology is a great force multiplier. Security — both cyber and physical solutions — helps secure an entire branch footprint, alleviates risk, ensures operational compliance, and improves fraud investigations. Video surveillance systems, analytics, threat management platforms and more can provide organisations with intelligence and unprecedented protection from fraud, all while enhancing the customer experience. Overall, there are significant benefits to collaborating to gain comprehensive risk intelligence. By bringing various leaders, departments, technologies and strategies together, we can more effectively identify threats, develop trends and quickly access important data to ensure security and safety goals are realised.

Customers should be reassured that BCDVideo will continue to offer HPE platforms, service, and support. “Our aim is to look at all best-of-breed technology to serve the video surveillance marketplace, and that means multiple partnerships,” says Larson.  “The addition of Dell EMC to our portfolio is a major win for BCDVideo, for Dell EMC, and for our integrators.” The global collaboration with Dell EMC will allow BCDVideo to open up a broader product offering Meeting surveillance market demands At the technology level, assures Larson, Dell EMC’s server offering is well suited to handle the increasing video resolution and growing camera count demanded by the surveillance industry. At the larger end of the spectrum, the company’s Isilon Scale-Out NAS solution can handle tens of petabytes of data, making it ideal for large-scale security applications such as city-wide surveillance and airport security. Dell EMC storage solutions are already proving successful at major international airports including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, each with a camera count in the 1000s.Dell EMC and BCDVideo together are ensuring our customers get the right solutions designed for the surveillance market” For Dell EMC, the new partnership means the ability to expand on this success in the enterprise market, leveraging BCDVideo’s surveillance expertise and high-level customer service to offer tailored solutions for lower-volume applications. Since its inception, BCDVideo has differentiated itself in the security space by providing a high level of IT service to integrators making the transition to IP systems. By combining resources, the partners will be able to service VMS and analytics companies, software vendors, and access control providers, as well as traditional business integrators. Ken Mills, General Manager Dell EMC Surveillance, explains: “Surveillance storage is not just about capacity, it is also about performance and reliability. Dell EMC and BCDVideo together are ensuring our customers get the right solutions designed for the surveillance market.” Accomodating for growth BCDVideo is well placed to accommodate this anticipated growth. Last year, the company opened a new 51,000-square-foot global headquarters in Illinois, home to 90 separate stations within their Innovation Center where each system is customised according to integrator needs. The new facility allows for expanding business with new and existing partners in the security market.
