In 2017, DITEK saw how power surges from the many natural disasters that took place damaged many businesses. In a natural disaster, or even everyday business operations, a facility’s entire investment in security, life safety and surveillance systems technology can be disabled or rendered useless in a few seconds. Surge protection solutions can mitigate those risks and protect security investments. Proactive approach to risk mitigation Throughout 2017, we also witnessed a change in how enterprises view surge protection, which included how investments are being made in surge protection to protect valuable security, life safety and surveillance systems, while also reducing downtime, manpower costs, liability vulnerabilities, and possibly compliance issues that can force businesses to actually cease operations. Effective security management is about mitigating risks. But risks cannot be mitigated without a proactive approach. Enterprises and integrators, who take the time to assess risk and to develop a strategy to incorporate effective detection, deter and response criteria to protect physical assets will be successful in 2018. 2018 and beyond That strategy includes designing surge protection into new security systems, while also adding surge protection to existing systems. Enterprises and security integrators who implement a surge protection strategy during security planning processes – or after – will be exercising prevention and mitigation, and they will be successful in 2018 and beyond. Surge protection devices have an untapped potential for enterprise surveillance and security systems In 2017, Ditek continued to offer security end users a solid surge protection solution. We also successfully educated system integrators, who are seeking value-added products or services to incorporate into their portfolios, on the importance of surge protection devices. Educating security integrators We believe that surge protection devices have an untapped potential for enterprise video surveillance and security systems, because they can and do meet safety and security challenges that have been rarely identified in the past. We are looking forward to 2018, when we will continue to develop new surge protection products – including a new product engineered to protect up to twelve individual fuel dispensers, which is critical to the financial operation of convenience stores. We will also continue to educate security integrators about the importance of including surge protection in the design/build RFP, to not only secure an enterprise’s valuable security equipment, but also to help integrators to differentiate their capabilities and knowledge from the competition.
The security market in 2016 saw an uptick in the economy, the introduction of new technologies, increased compliance requirements in key verticals, and rising concerns over the need for greater security. Users interested in upgrading or deploying new systems consistently chose networked system platforms. This trend further drove the demand for adaptive transmission solutions as a means of repurposing existing analogue infrastructure to accommodate IP devices on a networked platform. As this migration accelerated, product feature sets continued to evolve with the inclusion of advanced communications that let you monitor, control and report power/diagnostics from anywhere. These new products have also helped to stimulate new business opportunities for integrators by expanding their service offerings to include remote monitoring of these devices as a new source of recurring monthly revenue (RMR). PoE and adaptive transmission solutions In last year’s 2016 forecast, we discussed the integration trend and how PoE and adaptive transmission solutions with network communications were rapidly gaining traction and market share. As the year progressed, the trend increased with customers migrating towards systems that provided more data, faster transmission rates and more versatility, and accessibility anytime from anywhere. Altronix responded with more advanced product solutions. This growing trend makes it more critical than ever for the core power and transmission infrastructure that make up the foundation of these systems to include network communications for true integration. As effective and efficient as integrated IP systems have become, the cost to upgrade or install new networked systems can be prohibitive. In 2017, security professionals will require expanded options to capitalise on existing infrastructure while accommodating IP devices with new levels of performance. These new products will greatly reduce installation and maintenance costswhen deploying orupgrading systems We will see the introduction of new products that offer greater levels of integration with bundled capabilities such as PoE, network switches, versatile adaptive transmission capabilities to accommodate different types of cabling, greater bandwidth and speed, and management capabilities. These new products will greatly reduce installation and maintenance costs when deploying or upgrading systems.

IP/PoE systems eliminate the need for local power, thus saving installation costs Cost considerations are an important reason to use existing installed cable as part of a new system infrastructure. Extenders in the form of media converters can help. For almost three decades, video surveillance systems existed in the form of analogue systems. Video coaxial cable was the primary method of transmission with a limited distance of about 750 feet. Analogue systems required separate power supply located at each security camera site. Today, new technology often solves one problem and creates another. Internet Protocol/Power over Ethernet (IP/PoE) systems eliminate the need for local power supply, thus saving installation costs. The drawback is the restriction to only 328 feet and the required use of Cat 5e or above cable. Extended transmission distance So tens of thousands of video surveillance cameras are waiting to be converted to IP, and have been transmitting over coax at distances two-and-a-quarter-times greater than the Ethernet limit. The advent of extenders helps to solve this problem. In addition, the use of extenders for Cat cable and even single-pair alarm wire helps to add to the types of IP/PoE conversions while extending distance as far as three thousand feet. Tens of thousands of camerasare waiting to be converted to IP,and have been transmitting overcoax at distances two-and-a-quarter-times greater than theEthernet limit Considerations while using extenders Use of extenders requires taking several considerations into account. First and most important is a careful reading of specifications. A statement can be true while not applying to your applications. Let’s take IP/PoE transmission over coax as an example. A manufacturer’s product can state it has this feature and will meet your transmission requirement of X number of thousand feet. However, a careful reading reveals that achieving this requires RG 6 cable while you have RG 59 installed. You need to maintain a 100Mbps bandwidth and provide your cable with 12.95 watts of power. But as both bandwidth and power decrease with distances obtainable from many types of extensions, you realise that both are much less at the extended distance you require. In short, just depending on a product to make a simple specification statement is not enough when it comes to infrastructure considerations and especially with regards to extenders. Save Save
Redvision’s X-SERIES rugged PTZ dome camera range and the VEGA, rugged camera housings now have a tough, polycarbonate camera window option available. The PTZ and housing are both designed for tough, outdoor surveillance applications, so the new, ultra-tough window is a welcome enhancement. “Low-light performance is not compromised, and the new polycarbonate window is optically correct, like our standard, toughened glass window,” explained Stephen Lightfoot, Technical Director of Redvision. Effective images at up to 120 metres “The RV30 X-SERIES still delivers a sensitivity of 0.35Lux in day/night mode, reducing to 0.05Lux at night with IR illumination switched on. Our tests also found that the 2MP, 1080p X-SERIES model, with IR and white light illumination switched on, provides effective images at up to 120 metres, with operators successfully identifying people at up to 40 metres. “Our Tru-park silicon wiper removes dirt and water from the PTZ and camera housing’s windows. The windows are scratch-resistant and withstand pro-longed ‘dry’ use with no ill-effects, as well as supporting the existing washer option.” Resilient features The X-SERIES rugged PTZ cameras and VEGA fixed housings are made from tough, die-cast aluminium with an IP67 weather-proof and IK10 impact-rating. The X-SERIES comes with a durable powder-coating in black (RAL 9005) or light grey (RAL 7035). The VEGA is marine plated before being finished in the light grey. Options for any RAL colour, marine and ultra-marine finishes for coastal and corrosive applications are all available at extra cost.
Redvision, the UK’s renowned manufacturer of high-performance, rugged CCTV cameras, has released an image of its new VEGA 2010 camera housing, with its cover ghosted away. It clearly shows installers how their preferred camera and lens combinations can fit neatly inside. VEGA 2010 camera housing Stephen Lightfoot, technical director at Redvision explains, “The VEGA 2010, rugged, camera housing has room for cameras and lenses up to 290mm long. The Tru-park, silicon wiper, which removes dirt and water from the housing’s camera window, is shown at the front to the housing and concealed neatly behind the front bezel when not in use.” The VEGA is made from tough, die-cast aluminum, which is both IP67 weather-proof and IK10 impact-rated. It is finished with a marine-grade plating, followed by a durable powder-coating. Although the standard colour is light grey (RAL 7035), it can be finished is any RAL colour, as required. PoE-driven, CHAT interface board Stephen adds, “The PoE-driven, CHAT interface board is mounted beside the camera. This distributes power to the camera, wiper, washer and built-in heater, as well as providing the connection and interface for Ethernet and audio communications. The wiper’s gearing mechanism sits behind the camera and the drive mechanism runs alongside the camera to the front. All cabling is managed inside its built-in, wall or pedestal mounting bracket and integrated junction box.” The VEGA 2010 is one of the most compact, tough and well-designed, fixed rugged, camera housings in the security industry.
The Redvision VEGA™ 2052 takes rugged, outdoor cameras to another level. It is made from tough, die-cast aluminum and finished with a marine-grade plating, followed by a durable powder-coating. It is cable-managed, with all cabling routed through the housing and inside its wall or pedestal mounting brackets. No junction box is required, as connections are made within the housing using ‘easy-connect’, cable terminals. This not only gives the VEGA™ 2052 an IP67 weather-proof and IK10 impact rating with vandal-resistance, but also makes it quick and simple to install. Rugged fixed camera The VEGA™ 2052 camera has taken the company’s popular VEGA™ 2010 rugged camera housing and added a 2MP, camera module with a high-performance, Sony™ Exmor™, Low Light Sensor. It is available in a light grey (RAL 7035), as standard, but can be ordered in any other RAL colour, including black, as shown. Stephen Lightfoot, technical director at Redvision, explains, “The VEGA™ 2052 is one of the toughest and most durable, rugged cameras in the security industry. Compare the VEGA™ 2052 with any outdoor bullet camera and it is immediately obvious that it is built to last. Most bullet cameras would, in fact, be installed with a separate junction box, not shown in the picture, which can look messy and exposes cabling to malicious attacks. The VEGA™ 2052 is one of the toughest, fixed cameras in the security industry.”
