Korea’s video surveillance provider, IDIS, will be connecting with installers and integrators at The Security Event (Birmingham NEC, 9-11 April, Stand SE68) to explore new opportunities for project partnerships. The company’s focus on working closely with installers delivering more profitable, advanced video surveillance projects has seen its UK sales grow by 78% over the last year. Easy-to-source video solutions IDIS is focusing on helping accredited, specialist video surveillance integrators to fight back" With major contract wins helping to build its reputation and market share, IDIS is concentrating on reducing TCS (Total Cost to Serve) for installers and giving them easy-to-source video solutions that offer more profitable implementations and predictable revenue streams. As security installers face fierce competition and too often cut profit margins to win projects, IDIS is focusing on helping accredited, specialist video surveillance integrators to fight back. Our approach is to partner with the professional installers, giving them superior technology so they can compete on quality and value and win both installs and maintenance contracts,” says James Min, Managing Director, IDIS Europe. Latest generation technology At The Security Event IDIS will focus on its latest generation tech – including its best-selling 12MP Super Fisheye camera, the new budget-beating range of cameras and NVRs, the company’s powerful camera technology comprising 5MP/12MP domes and bullets, the award-winning 8MP IR PTZ 31x zoom and DR-6300 and 8300 series of NVRs, the totally license free yet comprehensive IDIS Center VMS and IDIS Dynamic Privacy Masking and new IDIS Deep Learning Analytics. These innovations give customers impressive results and offers installers a real point of difference above cheap, low-spec systems. IDIS technology is forward and backward compatible, is faster to install and easier to maintain – but at the same time is more powerful and robust. Minimising risks With installers competing for the most profitable contracts, a major benefit of IDIS tech is that it minimises the risk of project over-runs adding to costs. For example, IDIS’s true plug-and-play cameras don’t require engineers to manually programme each unit with a password – that essential task happens automatically – resulting in a faster finish, no mistakes and no loopholes in network security. Protection against data loss IDIS cameras now protect against loss of video data due to network instabilityAnother great example is that all IDIS cameras now protect against loss of video data due to network instability, with IDIS’s Smart Failover technology now built-in as standard. This ensures that gaps in recording are automatically restored as soon as the connection is re-established, protecting customers in a way that low-quality kit doesn’t, and making maintenance contracts easier and more predictable for installers. IDIS’s industry-best 7-year Ultimate Warranty further cuts the risk of cost over-runs on maintenance contracts. “We are totally focused on helping our installer partners reduce operational costs while supporting them to compete and win new projects,” explains Jamie Barnfield, Sales Director, IDIS Europe. “We are giving them an advantage at every stage, from providing them with better tech to delivering more convenient training, from helping with lead generation to ensuring smooth project delivery and efficient technical support immediately when it is needed.”

The cloud and deep learning are two technologies on the verge of transforming the video surveillance market. You often hear the two technologies mentioned as separate trends, but lately, I have been hearing about how interdependent they are. Economies of scale provided by the Cloud (Software as a Service, or SaaS) are making the sophisticated capabilities of deep learning affordable to a wider audience. Meanwhile, deep learning augments cloud systems with capabilities that may not be available, or affordable, in on-premise systems, thus accelerating the broader move to cloud systems. A new era of autonomous video One company that is combining the cloud and deep learning in an end-to-end system is Umbo Computer Vision, an “autonomous video security technology” company built on its founders’ expertise in deep learning and machine vision. The company’s cameras are equipped with basic video analytics, and they are tied into a cloud infrastructure that provides additional deep learning algorithms. The cameras provide computer vision pre-processing, with the bulk of detailed analysis happening in a neural network in the cloud.One customer benefits from another customer and all the knowledge is aggregated together" “Having a SaaS model gives companies like ours the resources to improve the deep learning model,” says Shawn Guan, CEO and co-founder of Umbo Computer Vision. “We can make more accurate systems that scale better and faster. SaaS enables vendors to do something great with deep learning. You don’t have to redo it for everybody. One customer benefits from another customer and all the knowledge is aggregated together.” Adapting to a changing landscape Umbo’s deep learning analytics provide higher accuracy, says Guan. For example, the system can provide accurate alerts on people climbing a wall, and it can accommodate for elements such as shadows and adverse weather conditions. The cameras can also provide occupancy information from a video view of a room; unlike people-counting applications, the camera does not need to be mounted above the door. The algorithms can detect loitering and can track a subject even if he or she disappears briefly from view (such as walking behind a building). Umbo developed the algorithms from scratch using the company’s deep roots in technology. Guan says the company was “built on data and using data.” The company’s cameras are equipped with basic video analytics, and they are tied into a cloud infrastructure that provides additional deep learning algorithms The cloud serves as a media gateway “Cybersecurity is ensured,” says Guan. The cloud provides built-in authentication with the camera; user names and passwords are handled in the cloud, so there is no manual reset of the password at the device level. The cloud serves as a media gateway, and two-way communication between the camera and the cloud addresses how much data is streamed. Data in the camera has 256-bit encryption, and there is a secure “tunnel” through which data moves in the Internet. In the cloud, the host provider, such as Google, Microsoft or Amazon, protects the data to their own high standards. Each camera has industrial grade SD providing 30 days’ storage of full frame rate, 30fps video at 1080p, with backup in the cloud. In effect, the camera operates in-lieu of a network video recorder.The end-to-end system is designed to handle an essentially-unlimited number of cameras and can also be integrated with other products Handling unlimited cameras Customers interface with the system through the cloud’s software user experience. The end-to-end system is designed to handle an essentially-unlimited number of cameras and can also be integrated with other products. Umbo targets the enterprise market and has around two-hundred enterprise customers in the United States - their biggest market - as well as offices in London and Taipei, and customers around the world. The cost structure involves an annual payment per camera, between $280 and $600 depending on features/capabilities. Umbo is introducing a new bullet camera with a zoom lens for exterior applications, incorporating a higher-end Sony sensor for good low-light performance and wide dynamic range (WDR). The camera’s modular design enables the addition of features such as longer-range infrared – increased from 100 to 160 feet – white-light LED to provide a colour image, and greater deterrence, at night, and a long-range microphone for audio. The company also offers a fixed-lens dome camera for indoor applications.
Motorola Solutions and Avigilon Corporation, a Motorola Solutions company, announced that they have been selected to help protect Georgetown County School District (‘GCSD’) in South Carolina, USA. Serving over 9,500 students throughout its 10 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, career centre and adult education centre, GCSD sought to undergo a major security upgrade to increase safety, help mitigate misconduct and offer greater ease-of-use for school administrators, security officers and law enforcement officials using the security system. Deployment of Avigilon Control Center VMS To enhance safety throughout its locations, a complete Avigilon video security system was deployed, with over 1,000 cameras including the H4A Bullet with self-learning video analytics, H4 Mini Dome and H4 Fisheye cameras, all of which helped achieve a tailored security solution for each location while allowing school security operators to leverage the benefits of real-time analytics. Avigilon Control Center video management software was also deployed to provide a more efficient way to manage video from a central location. GCSD also uses Motorola Solutions XPR 3500e radios across its locations GCSD also uses Motorola Solutions XPR 3500e radios across its locations. If suspicious activity is flagged using the Avigilon solution, security operators can quickly contact each other using the Motorola Solutions radios and take immediate action to keep students and staff safe. By using the two systems together, school officials can seamlessly improve operations from the time an emergency call is placed until after an incident is resolved. Unified security solution for schools “Georgetown County School District is an excellent example of how Motorola Solutions and Avigilon provide a unified security solution for schools,” said John Kedzierski, senior vice president, Video Security Solutions at Motorola Solutions. “We are committed to continuing to develop products and technologies that can help enhance school safety and protect what matters most: students, staff and faculty.” “The ability of Avigilon and Motorola Solutions to provide an integrated solution for security, and critical communications is quite unique and extremely valuable to us,” said Alan Walters, executive director, Safety and Risk Management at GCSD. “We selected this system knowing that it is designed with every step of the response process in mind, which can make a world of difference in the moments that matter most.”
Over 1,600 Wisenet cameras manufactured by Hanwha Techwin have been installed at Asia’s largest mega hub terminal in order to help operators monitor the movement of parcels and vehicles, as well as keep employees and visitors safe. With its nine decades of endless innovation, Korea’s logistics service provider, CJ Logistics, is leaping forward to become a pioneer by expanding its global networks to over 94 locations and entering the Thailand, Malaysia, China and Philippines markets. Video surveillance solution In June 2018, CJ Logistics opened Asia’s largest mega hub terminal in Gonjiam, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. The terminal, which comprises two buildings with four floors above ground and two underground, occupies approximately 300,000sq metres, almost the size of 40 football stadiums. The total length of the facility’s conveyer belts is almost 43km, long as a full-course marathon The total length of the facility’s conveyer belts is almost 43km, which is as long as a full-course marathon. The terminal also has a state-of-the-art automation system, the first of its kind in Korea, which has increased the company’s daily handling capacity to 1.72 million parcels, four times higher than its competitors. CJ Logistics looked for a top-notch video surveillance solution which could match the terminal’s grand scale and the technically advanced automated facilities. Providing periphery monitoring After testing cameras from different manufacturers in the market, CJ Logistics chose Hanwha Techwin as its supply partner and have subsequently installed around 1,660 Wisenet cameras throughout the terminal. Wisenet X series IR PTZ cameras have been installed along the building exteriors, providing periphery monitoring 24/7 and auto tracking that enables precise monitoring across long distances, while IR illumination provides visibility even at night. Inside the buildings, around 1,400 Hanwha Techwin’s Wisenet Q series cameras were installed on the terminal’s ceilings and walls. The cameras are able to help detect any problems occurring to the automated conveyer systems which have a constant flow of parcels on them. They also oversee the movement of over 1,500 vehicles in and around the terminal and help create a safe working environment. Highly accurate recognition Wisenet X series bullet cameras, running license plate recognition (ANPR) software onboard, have been installed at the main gate of the terminal to enhance security at the entrances and exits, providing highly accurate recognition of license plates. These cameras enable effective vehicle monitoring within the terminal where cargo moves in and out around the clock, and are particularly useful in monitoring the main entrance. Both camera types are equipped with 12x optical zoom and 150dB WDR Wisenet X series bullet and PTZ cameras have been installed at indoor staircases and corridors of the office building. Both camera types are equipped with 12x optical zoom and the World’s best 150dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) which ensures clear images are captured from scenes that contain a challenging mix of bright and dark areas, normally causing overexposed or underexposed images. Intelligent video analytics As part of the Wisenet X series, these cameras feature intelligent video analytics and offer movement, loitering and intrusion detection. They are also equipped with audio analysis functionality which recognises critical sounds such as gunshots, explosions, screams and broken glass. “Thanks to the Hanwha Techwin’s Wisenet security solution, we were able to build a safe video surveillance system that can match the size and the cutting edge facilities of Asia’s largest logistics terminal,” said an official at CJ Logistics. “Now we can safeguard every corner of our terminal including vehicles, parcels, and personnel, not to mention indoor and outdoor spaces.”
A video surveillance system with around 40 IP and thermal cameras from Dahua Technology has been installed at Yarmouth Harbour on the Isle of Wight. The harbour consists of a large marina, docks for the Wightlink Ferry terminal, and pontoons and boat moorings upstream. The previous system was becoming outdated, with poor picture quality and cabling issues. Following a number of thefts from boats and boat fires in neighbouring harbours, a new solution – including a thermal imaging capability – was specified. Thermal, IR, Ultra PTZs, fisheye cameras Dahua cameras are a mix of thermal bullets, IR bullets, Ultra PTZs, IR domes and fisheye cameras The Dahua cameras are a mix of thermal bullets, IR bullets, Ultra PTZs, IR domes and fisheye cameras. The thermal cameras are especially suited to wide area outdoor video surveillance and are ideal for the large, water-based environments at the harbour. The cameras feature Vox uncooled thermal sensor technology and high thermal sensitivity at less than 40mK, enabling them to capture more image details and temperature fluctuations. With a built-in fire detection functionality, the cameras provide an extremely sensitive fire alarm system. H.265 encoding technology The IR bullet cameras feature highly efficient H.265 encoding technology, PoE and IR illumination at up to 50 metres, as well as a wide dynamic range, providing vivid images even in the most intense contrast lighting conditions and delivering powerful day/night surveillance in a compact package. At one of the moorings upriver, there is no power supply on isolated pontoons, so wind power and solar energy have been harnessed to operate the cameras. Images are transmitted wirelessly back to a control room at the main harbour office. When the control room is not staffed, Yarmouth Harbour can nominate individuals to receive alerts and images on their tablets and smartphones via the Dahua surveillance app. Automatic people-counting technology The new surveillance system has transformed our ability to monitor the harbour" As well as the harbour itself, the system also covers the adjacent Yarmouth pier, a Grade II listed structure said to be the longest wooden pier in the UK and recently refurbished. Automatic people-counting technology has been incorporated into the cameras at the pier’s entrance to monitor numbers on the pier as a health and safety measure. “The new surveillance system has transformed our ability to monitor the harbour for the safety and security of our customers, staff and the visiting public,” said Dave Rice of Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners. “The HD picture quality is superb, and you can pick out people’s faces, so there is no comparison with the previous cameras. The system has proved straightforward to use and we are delighted with its performance to date.” “This proved an interesting project to work on, not least because parts of the installation had to be carried out by boat,” said Chris Snell, managing director of security installation firm, Central Southern Security. “The Dahua equipment has been a pleasure to work with and will provide Yarmouth Harbour with a great solution for many years to come.”
A Wisenet video surveillance system manufactured by Hanwha Techwin is being used to its full potential by the operators of the Audley End Miniature Railway in order to ensure that the 100,000 plus people who visit the Railway every year are able to safely enjoy all its facilities. Located close to Audley End House in Saffron Walden, Essex, the Miniature Railway, was built in 1964 by the then Lord Braybrooke as a hobby. It has since become a major tourist attraction with train enthusiasts able to enjoy steam and diesel train rides through the beautiful Audley End Estate Woodland designed by Capability Brown, whilst young visitors can venture through a ‘Fairy and Elf’ walk. IP Network Solution IP network-based Wisenet system is being used to keep a close eye on the trains moving around the 2.4 km track Originally installed as a replacement for an old analogue CCTV system following a number of security incidents, the new IP network-based Wisenet system is now also being used to keep a close eye on the trains moving around the 2.4 kilometer track and visitor car parking areas. In addition, it is also helping with the management of the queues of people waiting to buy tickets and to ensure compliance with Health & Safety regulations. The video surveillance system, comprising 14 Wisenet cameras and a Network Video Recorder (NVR), has been installed by IT infrastructure specialists, Eastern Voice and Data, who also designed and installed the Miniature Railway’s network and Wi-Fi. Wisenet cameras and NVR “We have previously installed Wisenet cameras for other clients and have been impressed with their robustness and reliability, as well as the quality of the captured images,” said Russell Marriott, Director of Norwich-based Eastern Voice and Data. “As a result, we were able to confidently recommend to Audley End Miniature Railway that all cameras should be selected from the Wisenet camera range. We then worked closely with the Hanwha Techwin pre-sales team to select the most appropriate camera model for each location.” Wisenet Q Series cameras Among the 14 cameras installed are 5 QNO-7030R Bullet and 6 QND-7010R Dome cameras Among the 14 cameras installed are 5 QNO-7030R Bullet and 6 QND-7010R Dome cameras. These are all able to capture 4megapixel high definition images of objects regardless of the lighting conditions, with the help of built-in IR illumination. Part of the Wisenet Q camera series, the cameras also feature defocus, motion and tamper detection, hallway view and lens distortion correction, whilst support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) has negated the need for Eastern Voice and Data to have to provide separate power supplies and cabling to each camera location. Images captured from all the cameras are recorded and stored on a 16 channel Wisenet XRN-1610S NVR, which is equipped with a PoE switch. Wisenet Mobile App “Our old CCTV was well passed its ‘use-by’ date and lacked the functionality required to help us maintain a safe environment for our visitors and staff, as well as deter would be intruders and vandals,” said Bob Ottaway, General Manager of the Audley End Miniature Railway. “We are now able to closely monitor all activity throughout the site during opening hours, and with the help of the Wisenet Mobile App, we can also be remotely alerted via smartphones and tablets to any suspicious activity when we are closed.”

Since renovation began in the 1990s, the Custard Factory in central Birmingham has grown into an important centre for the creative and digital industries, as well as a destination for leisure, retail and cultural activities. The 15-acre site, which in Victorian days was a pioneering centre for food and ingredients production, has been transformed into a thriving working community for hundreds of small businesses, benefiting from several phases of development. The Custard Factory now comprises multiple buildings in a vibrant city centre location, so the risks of petty crime must be planned for and the safety of users ensured. Upgrading to IP and wireless technology An ageing analogue video system at the Custard Factory was proving expensive to maintain and, without enough cameras, it was giving only limited coverage. An upgrade was needed but installation work had to take place without disruption to the many businesses at the site, so specialist integrator Unison Integrated Technology was asked to find the most suitable solution. Latest video tech from IDIS was selected because it provided the best image quality The latest video tech from IDIS was selected because it provided the best image quality, unrivalled usability and trouble-free installation with the ability to mix and match equipment. It also allowed existing infrastructure such as coax cabling to be incorporated, and by combining HD-TVI with the latest IP and wireless technology it enabled real-time monitoring in the control room without the need for complex and expensive civil works. IDIS IP cameras More than 60 new high-performance cameras have now been integrated into a leading-edge solution giving complete coverage of this diverse estate made up of the main Custard Factory Buildings, an open-air carpark, neighbouring external areas and the Fazeley studios. To protect the carpark and external areas, including historic archways, a mix of cameras has been used, including dome cameras with IR LED and wide dynamic range giving coverage in all lighting conditions. All IDIS IP cameras also benefit from IDIS Smart Failover technology which ensures continued video capture in the event of network instability or failure. DR-6316 H.265 NVR Video is streamed to the control room via a SilverNet wireless link, yet crucially there is no latency or lag on the images. These cameras are connected to a DR-6316 H.265 NVR, supporting 16 channels that utilises IDIS Intelligent Codec to minimise bandwidth and storage requirements. Thanks to IDIS true plug-and-play technology, Unison Integrated Technology installed new cameras without disruption At the Fazeley studios, which includes both indoor and outdoor facilities, a combination of IP and analogue bullet cameras, PTZs and domes are used. And at the Custard Factory main buildings, four PTZ cameras, two fixed domes and 25 bullet cameras are connected to IDIS’s powerful DR-8364D recorder, which supports up to 64 channels with a super-fast 900Mps throughput. IDIS true plug-and-play technology Thanks to IDIS true plug-and-play technology, Unison Integrated Technology installed the new cameras without disruption or any need to stop trading during the work, which included working around operational restaurants and shops. At the purpose-built security control, room operators now have a complete view of the site, allowing them to replace inefficient patrols on foot with more frequent video tours. And the free IDIS Center video management system (VMS) makes it easy to operate the new, enhanced system incorporating third-party cameras, the HD-TVI analogue devices and the latest IDIS IP tech. High-resolution video surveillance With the new surveillance system and improved lighting in place visitors feel safer, particularly walking to and from the car park after evening events. The ability of the security team to monitor events real-time and respond to health & safety incidents is appreciated by event organisers using the Fazely venue. And police have been able to tackle petty theft more effectively thanks to the high-resolution video evidence which is now easily and quickly retrieved in order to tackle crime. The IDIS technology fully delivered on our requirements for an affordable, high-quality surveillance solution" The solution is flexible and scalable, with more cameras easily added as the Digbeth estate continues to evolve and expand. Custard Factory estate manager Simon Dunn says the upgrade has far exceeded expectations. IDIS video security system Simon says, “The IDIS technology fully delivered on our requirements for an affordable, high-quality surveillance solution covering our complete estate. The Unison engineering team delivered the project to the highest standard and they were considerate and respectful of our busy, live environment. I am very pleased with the result, both in terms of the quality of the images and the operation of the system, which is simple and effective.”
