Hanwha Techwin and analytics specialist Sprinx Technologies have combined their expertise to develop Wisenet Automatic Incident Detection (AID), an easy-to-deploy and highly accurate city wide incident detection solution which is designed to be affordable for budget conscious local authorities. Traffic AID lets operators instantly know when traffic is slowing down and whether there is a lengthening queue. It will also detect broken down or illegally stopped vehicles and if there is a wrong-way driver, a pedestrian in danger or smoke in a tunnel. It will even spot if some cargo has fallen off a lorry. Intelligent incident management Traffic AID utilises intelligent image processing to quickly alert operators about specific traffic-related events, whilst at the same time enables statistical data such as vehicle classification, counting and flow to be recorded. Traffic AID’s intuitive web user interface enables operators to specify detection zones and parameters and to analyse statistical data via easy on the eye graphics and charts. An event journal provides a log of all events and snapshots of individual incidents. For city surveillance managers who do not require the complete Traffic AID package, there are a number of affordable module options available to help them keep traffic and pedestrians on the move. These include: Pedestrian and Stop Detection (PSD): Alerts are generated when pedestrians and stopped vehicles are detected in a tunnel or on a hard shoulder. Traffic Flow: Simultaneously monitors two separate traffic lanes in order to estimate traffic flow and automatically alert operators when there is congestion on the roads and queues are developing. Traffic Data: For short-term traffic management and long-term city centre planning, the Traffic Data solution provides statistical data about the density, average speed and flow of motorbikes, cars, lorries and buses. It can simultaneously monitor two lanes of traffic moving in different directions, whilst a cleverly devised Origin-Destination Matrix (OD) feature highlights traffic conditions at busy city-centre crossroads and roundabouts. Image-stabilising Wisenet X IR cameras The Traffic Hub server based application collects and aggregates data from multiple network connected Wisenet cameras, and through its interface offers a quick overview of all traffic incidents. Providing detailed but easy-to-understand graphs of traffic data such as the numbers and average speed of vehicles, the application is available in 4, 16 and 48 channel packages. Selected high-definition Wisenet X cameras are packed with innovative features such as the world’s best Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and motorised varifocal low-light lens, to ensure operators are able to view sharp, clear quality day or night images in order to visually verify Traffic AID information. The 2 megapixel Wisenet XNB-6000 and XNB-6005 fixed cameras, and the XNP-6120R IR bullet camera are also all equipped with gyro sensors which provide accurate stabilisation to combat wind or vibrations. Traffic management expertise “Our engineers have worked very closely with the Sprinx Technologies team to ensure we exceed the expectations of traffic managers who are tasked with resolving the challenge of the ever-increasing number of vehicles causing congestion within city centres, and on highways and motorways,” said Tim Biddulph, Head of Product and Solutions for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “This is another example of where ‘WE MOVE with trust’ in establishing genuine partnerships with other manufacturers who are expert in their respective fields.”
Video surveillance specialists Hanwha Techwin in partnership with analytics experts FF Group, has launched a comprehensive suite of ANPR based intelligent traffic management solutions. The solutions range from car park access control for business applications, through to large scale city wide based systems, which enable local authorities to keep people safe as well as detect illegally parked vehicles and other traffic infringements. Crime prevention with ANPR cameras The FF Group licence plate recognition application, which is effective with all European number plate formats, has been integrated with two Wisenet cameras. As a result, the Wisenet SNO-6095RH/FNP and XNO-6120R/FNP ANPR cameras are able to offer more than a 95% recognition accuracy whatever the environmental conditions and even when vehicles are moving at speeds of up to 150 km/h. Users can define up to 2,000 number plates in a ‘black and white’ list in order to automatically authorise or decline access to a site or car parking area, with each camera able to monitor up to three lanes of traffic. Recorded events include entry/exit activity and direction of vehicles. Alerts can be generated for crime prevention purposes, such as reducing incidents of non-payments at petrol stations. Cloud-based surveillance For large car parks, shopping centres and other commercial sites where there is significant traffic movement, the single-site Wisenet ANPR server solution provides a highly efficient and scalable option. It is able to simultaneously monitor images of vehicle traffic activity by up to 32 cameras, whilst additional benefits include online alerting, access control and utilisation analysis. Wisenet ANPR is also available in a range of cloud based solutions which are designed for multi-camera and multi-site applications. Providing ‘intelligent’ data analysis and reporting, these include: Number Plate cloud: Reports include a photo of number plates, entry/exit timing and push notifications and alerts. Car Park cloud: This allows security personnel to have strict control over which vehicles have access to a site’s sensitive areas, such as loading bays. Reports generated include the level of car park occupancy, the number of free spaces, vehicles’ duration of stay and frequency of visits. It can also synchronise data between a number of different sites. City Traffic cloud: Located at city-centre intersections and main roads, the Wisenet City Traffic cloud solution provides local authorities and police with the licence plate numbers of vehicles involved in traffic lane or parking It also offers access to real-time traffic flow data, such as the average speed and the number of vehicles on the roads. More in-depth analysis for longer term planning comes from the data that is recorded on everyday drivers who travel into specific areas. Integrated security solutions “This is another example of how Hanwha Techwin is staying true to our promise where ‘WE MOVE with trust’,” said Tim Biddulph, Head of Product and Solutions for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “In the spirit of true partnership, we are working with specialist application developers and keeping to our promise to continually develop new, innovative solutions which make good use of the technology built into our high-performance open platform cameras.” “Consultants and systems integrators when specifying analytics solutions can be assured Hanwha Techwin has carefully selected its technology partners, such as the FF Group, and has worked closely with them to achieve a deep level of integration. This means that end-user clients can look forward to enjoying the full benefits of an effective ANPR solution without themselves having to evaluate the myriad of specialist analytics solutions on the market.”

Both are specifically important in the perimeter protection environments such as ports and airports. The models also feature bi-directional audio that allows them to be interfaced with local PA systems. All of these features have been designed to save installation time and cost. The SNP-6320H and SNP-6320 can capture high quality colour images when the lighting level is as low as 0.03 Lux and have an ultra-fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p allowing the domes to send multiple streams at multiple frame rates and resolutions, depending on the receiving device, e.g. recorder, viewing software or mobile app. This can be particularly beneficial at sites where different stakeholders are involved. Samsung’s WiseNetIII utilisation of bandwidth friendly H.264 compression improves the network control latency of the domes, making the manually tracking of objects simple and straightforward. 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 new models are also equipped with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as face detection, 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. As is the case with all Samsung Techwin video surveillance solutions, the SNP-6320H and SNP-6320 are offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.

icomply’s V-TAS Pro PSIM integration platform is now able to support Samsung Techwin IP network video surveillance cameras. The open platform V-TAS Pro integration software offers Samsung Techwin customers the opportunity to use traditional analogue cameras with the latest generation of WiseNetIII 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel network cameras and domes. icomply, the UK software developers of V-TAS Pro, a PSIM integration platform, provide integration solutions for critical national infrastructure (CNI), government, retail and transportation applications. Under the technology partnership, icomply have committed to fully integrating Samsung Techwin IP camera and VMS technology into the V-TAS Pro software platform, to enable seamless control of the Samsung Techwin product range through the V-TAS Pro software. “We are continually expanding our integration portfolio which now includes several hundred OEM technologies, from advanced IP cameras and VMS solutions, to access control, intruder and perimeter protection systems and our innovative V-TAS Pro software delivers innovative integration solutions at their best,” said Michael Gallagher, Business Development Director of icomply. “Samsung Techwin’s extensive product range entirely complements the open platform integration that we actively promote at icomply.” V-TAS Pro provides a centralised security platform which enables a wide range of security applications, such as intruder detection, building management and fire systems to connect concurrently on a common interface. It is designed to provide integration solutions for a wide range of market sectors, from government and retail, to transportation. “We are very pleased to have been able to form a technology partnership with icomply,” explains Tim Biddulph, Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Limited. “The Samsung Techwin and icomply technical teams have successfully collaborated to achieve a high level of integration. As a result, our mutual customers now have the option to extend the life of their existing security infrastructure, whilst taking full advantage of the features and functions incorporated within the latest generation of Samsung Techwin WiseNetIII IP cameras which are revolutionising the way installers, systems integrators and end-users can capitalise on the benefits of Video over IP.”
Samsung Techwin has further expanded its highly popular WiseNetIII network camera range with the introduction of six new 3 megapixel models. The new ONVIF compliant day/night network cameras and domes are all able to capture high quality colour images when lighting levels are as low as 0.1 Lux at an ultra-fast frame rate of 30fps at 2048 x 1536P. They are designed for retail, education and healthcare applications as well as for any environment where evidence grade images are required, such as airports, ports car parks and other transport facilities. “We can now offer a family of WiseNetIII 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel network cameras and domes which collectively provide customers with the flexibility to specify the ideal high definition model to match the requirements of each individual camera location,” said Tim Biddulph, Product Manager for the security solution division of Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “We are confident that the outstanding quality of the images captured by the new 3 megapixel cameras will attract the attention of installers and systems integrators across Europe, whilst our high definition 1.3 and 2 megapixel models continue to offer outstanding value for applications where bandwidth limitations and storage requirements are important considerations, as well as image quality.” All of the models in the new WiseNetIII 3 megapixel series utilise P-iris technology which optimises clarity and depth of field, whilst enhanced Wide Dynamic Range, which with performance greater than 120dB, overcomes the challenge of monitoring areas such as receptions or lobbies where there may be strong external lighting and large amounts of glass. Utilising bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, all of the models incorporate a multi-crop feature, enabling users to highlight and crop 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. The new models are also equipped with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as face detection, 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 the normal motion of the scene is and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees. Other key features include Digital Image Stabilisation (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 introduction of the WiseNetIII 3MP series is a further response to our 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,” said Tim Biddulph. “As such, they incorporate a long list of innovative features which reflect our commitment to seek continual improvement in Image Quality, Bandwidth Utilisation and Ease of Use – the ‘Three pillars’ of our development plan.” The six models in the WiseNetIII network 3MP series are: SNB-7004 – 3 megapixel network box camera SNO-7084R - 3 megapixel network weather proof IR bullet camera SND-7084 - 3 megapixel network dome camera SND-7084R - 3 megapixel network IR dome camera SNV-7084 - 3 megapixel vandal-resistant network dome camera SNV-7084R - 3 megapixel vandal-resistant network IR dome camera
