Wavestore, the British manufacturer of open platform video management solutions is helping to detect the presence of hooligans at three of the largest football stadiums in Montevideo, Uruguay. Working in conjunction with Systems Integrator partner DDBA, Wavestore’s VMS has been deployed at the Centenario, Penarol and Nacional stadiums to enable the police and security personnel to identify known troublemakers and prevent them from gaining entry to any of the grounds. Facial recognition technology The project, which has seen Wavestore installed within the stadiums’ control rooms as well as in mobile police units, was won following an extensive evaluation process in which Wavestore and technology partner, Herta, a provider of state-of-the-art facial recognition software, proved to be highly effective compared to those offered by other manufacturers. Manufacturers competing for the project were allocated a specific period of time to set up their integrated solutions to demonstrate the ability to detect and identify 40 people who had been entered onto a database and who were randomly integrated with an estimated 50,000 football fans approaching the stadium entrances to attend a match. When the results of the tests were analysed, it was found that Wavestore and Herta had been able to detect 39 of the 40 targets, even though many were wearing hats, scarves and dark glasses. The one person who was not detected had completely covered their face. The contract to install the video surveillance systems comprising of a fully integrated Wavestore/Herta solution and multiple HD cameras, was awarded to DDBA Wavestore-Herta video surveillance system The contract to install the video surveillance systems comprising of a fully integrated Wavestore/Herta solution and multiple HD cameras, was awarded to DDBA, a leading security and IT infrastructure systems integrator. “As is the case in many countries in the world, football stadiums in Uruguay have regretfully experienced anti-social behaviour on match days,” said German Ruiz, a Director of Montevideo-based DDBA. “With a zero-tolerance policy towards hooliganism, the Football Association of Uruguay made the decision to invest in technology that would recognise the relatively small number of individuals who could endanger and spoil the enjoyment of the many thousands of people attending the games.” When disruption occurs during a football match, images captured by the cameras are used by police and security personnel to identify and apprehend those involved. The images are then added to a database of undesirable attendees. The entire video data from every match is transferred into a large data system, maintained at the Ministry of Interior, to enable the police to retrospectively analyse key data The entire video data from every match is transferred into a large data system, maintained at the Ministry of Interior, to enable the police to retrospectively analyse key data and search for individual images over a period of years. IP cameras and video recorders Multiple Axis 20 Megapixel IP cameras from have been installed within the three stadiums in order to monitor seating and terrace areas, whilst high definition Axis Q6055 32x PTZ cameras are being used by operators to zoom into see close up detail of any incidents. In addition, Axis P1365 IP cameras chosen specifically to support facial recognition, have been installed at all entrances to each stadium, as well as in police mobile units located to monitor the streams of fans as they progress towards the stadium along the footpaths. The stadiums and the Ministry of Interior have been equipped with Wavestore X-Series recorders plus additional servers maintained on standby for failover purposes. All are 4U rack-mounted with 24 hot-swap hard drives. Data storage and analysis The client was also impressed by Wavestore’s robust data recording technology, which is extremely fast and enables specific video data to be located and displayed instantaneously A careful and detailed analysis of the network needed to support the aggregated bandwidth of all the cameras operating concurrently, as well as user demands at the various monitoring stations and display walls was carried out. According to German Ruiz, it is one of the many reasons why Wavestore’s high-throughput servers were chosen for the project. “The client was also impressed by Wavestore’s robust data recording technology, which is extremely fast and enables specific video data to be located and displayed instantaneously,” said German. “Exporting video clips from the Wavestore system is also very quick and easy, requiring just a 3-click process.” Commenting on the success of the project, Chris Williams, Project Director of Wavestore Global Ltd said: “As a British manufacturer we are proud that the quality and the price/performance ratio of our solutions is enabling us to win projects as far afield as Uruguay. Equally important, we are delighted to have proven our ability, and value the opportunity we have had to work with DDBA and Herta who have used their respective expertise to contribute towards the success of this prestigious project.”
At the event, Wavestore to offer its partners and end-clients a scalable and future-proof video management solution It was announced on 21st April 2015 that Wavestore had been presented with awards Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for International Trade and for Innovation. Wavestore wins most prestigious accolades Wavestore is just one of only two businesses to have won two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise this year, the most prestigious accolades for businesses in the United Kingdom. They are conferred annually by HM Queen Elizabeth II, on the advice of the Prime Minister, to organisations with outstanding performance in international trade, innovation and sustainable development. In this article, Wavestore’s senior management express their delight in receiving the Awards, which they believe reflect the lead Wavestore is taking in developing innovative Video Management Software (VMS), and recognises the company’s stellar growth in international sales. Wavestore, Chairman & Managing Director comments “We are particularly proud to have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the innovation category bearing in mind our commitment and ability to respond to changing market requirements,” said Stuart Caldecourt, Chairman & Managing Director of Wavestore. “We are constantly re-evaluating our VMS and with the help of our global network of business partners, we listen to feedback from the marketplace as to what is required to help users achieve their security and business objectives, both today and in the future. We truly understand the importance of striving to continually improve and innovate, and this is reflected in Version 6, the latest release of our VMS which we will be launching at IFSEC 2015.” Wavestore, Director of Engineering comments In support of Stuart’s comments, Justin Wheatley, Wavestore’s Director of Engineering, explains how the company’s highly talented software and hardware development teams share a passion for ensuring that Wavestore stands out from the crowd in what is a fragmented VMS marketplace, by developing features and functions that deliver real benefits to our users around the world. “At user level, we are determined that Wavestore should provide the most intuitive video and recording management available today with powerful video and data search as well as evidential quality export functionality. We want to give operators the tools they need to efficiently and effectively do their job day in, day out - all from a single screen and with minimal training required. “Sitting at the heart of an electronic security system, our truly independent open platform VMS enables organisations to unlock the full potential of an integrated solution. For example, although Wavestore integrates as standard with thousands of devices and is ONVIF conformant, bespoke project specific and specialist integrations can be easily, quickly and cost-effectively implemented thanks to WaveStar - our unique protocol translation script that allows us to integrate almost any device with the functionality you need.” Wavestore's outstanding growth in export earnings Chris Williams, Director of International Sales, is exceptionally pleased that Wavestore has also won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the international trade category. “The Award recognises the outstanding growth in export earnings that we have achieved over the past three years. We have been consistently successful in winning significant orders throughout the world during the last 15 years and Wavestore’s reputation for providing robust, reliable and cost effective video management solutions has spread far and wide. In countries such as Australia, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Kuwait, Spain and USA, to name just a few, Wavestore’s VMS has been placed at the heart of security systems operating in virtually every possible type of environment.” Wavestore’s ability to offer its partners and end-clients a scalable and future-proof video management solution will be on show on stand D1350 at IFSEC International 2015 which takes place at ExCeL London on 16-18 June.
The BSIA-organised UK Pavilion the focal point of the highest-ever turnout of UK companies The Intersec exhibition held in Dubai last month is fast becoming a must attend event for British security providers. Members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) and its Export Council, who were there in force for the 17th year, report a high level of interest in the wide range of innovative UK security solutions, from integrated systems to access control, CCTV, perimeter protection, intruder alarm and power supply technology, on display. The scale of the British presence at Intersec 2015 was certainly impressive this time around, with the BSIA-organized UK Pavilion the focal point of the highest-ever turnout of UK companies. The positive experience of Export Council member companies at Intersec 2015 was captured by a post-event survey, with 75% of respondents answering that the number of visitors coming to their stands had grown year-on-year, paralleling what the organisers themselves have been saying. Beyond this, half of the member companies surveyed pointed out that the quality of attendees had improved - a welcome trend. Reflecting on the bottom-line business benefits, three-quarters said that they expect to obtain more orders thanks to Intersec and, looking ahead to 2016, all of the companies who replied confirmed that they were planning to attend next year's event. So what were visitors to Intersec 2015 most interested in? Well, security integration seems have been the hot topic, with all respondents to the BSIA's Export Council's post-show survey selecting it as one of the standout technology areas. This mirrors the findings of the BSIA's security and business trends research and underlines the increasing recognition amongst BSIA members’ customers of the enhanced security, and day-to-day management, benefits that can be unlocked when a number of elements from access control to video surveillance can be brought together in a seamless IP environment rather than remaining in their own discrete, and unconnected, silos. "From our members’ survey it is clear that not only was the number of on-stand visits on an upward trajectory but, crucially, there was a corresponding uplift in the level and quality of enquiries" Other technologies on the shopping list for Intersec 2015, according to the BSIA survey, included: HD (High Definition) CCTV and ultra HD in the form of 4K which continues to prove a popular choice thanks, undoubtedly, to the ability to provide additional detail in security critical applications such as banks and hotel lobbies and changing legislative requirements across the region. Beyond this video content analysis, biometrics for access control and ANPR were also in the frame. Commenting on Intersec 2015, Tom Sharrard, Vice Chair of the Export Council at the BSIA, is delighted with how the exhibition turned out for member companies: “Intersec 2015 certainly surpassed our expectations. From our members’ survey it is clear that not only was the number of on-stand visits on an upward trajectory but, crucially, there was a corresponding uplift in the level and quality of enquiries. It will, of course, be interesting to see how this translates into physical orders in the months ahead. There is little doubt that Intersec remains a strong platform for our members targeting the region, an area which appreciates the benefits of working with British businesses which offer best practice solutions that comply with the latest industry standards." Member companies were asked for their thoughts regarding Intersec 2015: Chris Williams, Director at VMS (Video Management Software) specialist Wavestore (www.wavestore.com) feels that the design of the UK Pavilion was particularly strong this year and was happy with the level of visitors: “The many visitors who attended on all three days delivered one of the best shows for some time.” A key focus for Wavestore was the energy saving capabilities of its V6 VMS which automates the spin down of hard drives not engaged in active read and write processes. Paul King, Commercial Director at Elmdene (www.elmdene.co.uk) reports that switch mode power supplies delivering efficiency levels of up to 90% were a big draw at Intersec, with leads up by 20%: “There was a lot of attention being given to our EN54 STX power supplies, high specification CCTV power supplies and PoE solutions,” says King. Natalie Simpson, Marketing Manager, Synectics (www.synecticsuk.com) says that the company's team at Intersec saw significant interest in integrated solutions and the EX camera station range, including thermal imaging. Reflecting on the bottom-line business benefits, three-quarters said that they expect to obtain more orders thanks to Intersec Another company whose solutions fitted-in with the market push for integration was TDSi (www.tdsi.co.uk), thanks to its powerful Exgarde access control software and VUgardeCCTV video management software. By the second day of the show, Managing Director John Davies was already pointing to an upward trend in attendees, a fact reflected in the company's final figures which rose by a fifth. Helen Williams, Marketing Executive at Remsdaq (www.remsdaq.com) says that the company secured record visitor numbers from across the Middle East and Africa: “We anticipate significant new business based on our multi-award winning EntroWatch and EntroStar access control products and the brand new EntroPad proximity reader with its unique Arabic keypad.” Tony Smith, Major Accounts and Marketing Manager at Integrated Design Ltd (IDL), renowned for its Fastlane turnstile solutions (www.fastlaneturnstiles.com), is also upbeat after a steady increase in visitors over the past few years. He reckons that the show is a good way to move existing business forward: “People from projects in the Gulf were able to come to see us for technical training and to look at the products they had purchased.” A member company using Intersec to show the shape of things to come was IndigoVision (www.indigovision.com) in the form of its FrontLine body worn video. Paul Murphy the company's Head of Marketing feels there is tremendous potential for the technology: “It has come to the point where it is durable and lightweight enough, and can record for long enough, for deployment by front line staff.” Users could range from staff at airports to those who are public-facing in hotels."
The collaboration with Vizualize underpins Wavestore's commitment to provide seamlessly solutions The successful combination of Vizualize technology with Wavestore’s video management software (VMS) has enhanced the ability of businesses to identify opportunities to increase operational efficiency and enhance customer satisfaction. Vizualize harmonises its leading-edge sensors, intelligent devices, analytics and dynamic reporting solutions. When working alongside Wavestore’s open platform VMS, its highly accurate 3D edge based people counting system can, for example, in retail environments provide options for shopper tracking, in-store audience measurement and product interaction monitoring, which deliver an insight into virtually every element of shopper activity. In addition to retail applications, Vizualize’s technology can provide capture and analyse data in order to help a wide range of other market sectors identify opportunities where productivity can be improved and customer satisfaction maintained, whilst ensuring a safe and secure environment for staff and customers. These include applications within the transport sector where passenger waiting times and delays at airports, ports and other transport facilities has become of increasing concern as security measures are tightened, and within stadiums, large venues, pubs and night clubs where the need to comply with licensing and safety laws means that having an accurate, reliable system for monitoring occupancy levels, is essential. 360 Degrees Visibility Vizualize’s ability to generate data that will allow an analysis of customer movement by way of, for example, heat maps, is further enhanced when 360 degree fisheye cameras are deployed, to record all of the activity in the monitored area. In addition, Wavestore is able to assist in this process as, in addition to de-warping the fisheye images, it enables operators to control a ‘virtual’ PTZ function to track activity and save video clips of an unlimited number of individual events captured in the camera’s entire field of view. "Our collaboration with Vizualize underpins Wavestore's commitment to provide seamlessly solutions which can deliver so much more than what has traditionally been expected of a video surveillance system," said Chris Williams, Director of Wavestore. "We have developed a strong relationship with Vizualize to bring our combined solution to the attention of the countless number of businesses that could benefit from visually verified data which helps them track their performance in line with defined KPIs."
