Xtralis, a leading provider of powerful solutions for the early detection of security threats, has launched the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid - a new generation of highly reliable network video and audio transmission and recording technology with analytics for both IP and analogue CCTV remote monitoring applications.Building on the heritage of the ADPRO FastTrace, the new ADPRO 3100 Hybrid is a single- or multi-site system that monitors and transmits high-quality images using H.264 compression so operators within a central monitoring station can quickly assess an unfolding security situation and take appropriate action.It also uses server-grade hard disks to locally store up to 8 terabytes of data "in the box," and when used in conjunction with the ADPRO VideoCentral Platinum management software, provides the most flexible multi-site video security system available. "The ADPRO V3100 Hybrid is part of the ultimate video management system," says Colin Rogers, global solutions marketing manager for Xtralis. "It provides the earliest possible warning of a security threat so impacts can minimised and guard services deployed efficiently." The ADPRO V3100 Hybrid fully integrates with other ADPRO security systems, such as the ADPRO PRO Passive Infrared Detectors and the ADPRO Presidium Video Motion Detector, as Rogers says: "to provide complete security from the edge of a facility to its very core." A true "hybrid," the ADPRO V3100 has been designed with reliability as a key imperative: hard disk SMART diagnostics provide early warning of potential hard disk failure, and the operating system uses flash memory so that the system continues to operate even during hard disk failure. Other features include automated system monitoring of all critical functions and a secondary communications path if the primary should fail. Fully scalable and capable of supporting up to 16 cameras, the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid can manage both Dual codec and Dual stream technologies for totally independent recording and viewing quality settings per camera. It also features one audio input per video input for synchronised audio recording and an intuitive Web interface that gives authorised users remote access to live and recorded video. The use of H.264 compression technology delivers the highest quality video with the lowest bandwidth. Recording is of evidential quality with video resolution for IP cameras up to High Definition (HD), and it records up to 25 images per second (PAL) and 30 ips (NTSC). The ADPRO V3100 Hybrid also enables extremely fast searches through large amounts of recorded video with an innovative post-record metadata motion search capability. Results are presented on a timeline in seconds without large video data transfers across the network. "With live and recorded video transmission, two-way audio, remote camera control and flexible integration capabilities, the ADPRO V3100 Hybrid provides a complete solution for multi-site security," Rogers concludes. An SDK interface is available to support direct integration with third-party receiving software.
For a complete IP video solution, the Honeywell EQUIP™ range of IP cameras, mini domes, PTZ domes and HCX megapixel cameras integrate with our latest Fusion digital video recorder.IP cameras can be easily added to existing analogue security systems containing Fusion III DVRs via a IP licence and flash upgrade so users can implement IP without installing a new DVR. In addition, Fusion has the option to add video analytics or ANPR capability. For high-resolution recording, our EQUIP IP cameras capture high quality images even in low light. Faster video transmission using smaller network bandwidth is achieved via MPEG-4 compression. And our new HCX megapixel cameras provide network surveillance for high-resolution object recognition beyond the capability of standard analogue cameras.

Honeywell's Pro-Watch® 3.80 Security Management Suite simplifies overall system management through enhanced Microsoft® compatibility. Pro-Watch 3.80 includes several new advanced features made possible through improved integration with Honeywell's MAXPRO®VMS (Video Management System) and various third-party systems.Pro-Watch 3.80 supports user upgrades to new Microsoft® versions of Windows® Server 2008, SQL Server® 2008, and Windows 7. This provides a convenient way to set up groups in Windows using database privileges to streamline the manual steps involved in installation. Pro-Watch 3.80 leverages existing network infrastructure by using standard network protocol to communicate to all system components to help a facility manage access control, alarm monitoring, video badging, digital video, video surveillance and visitor management systems.Integrating with MAXPRO VMS allows Pro-Watch 3.80 to intelligently determine the capabilities of each analogue or digital video device across various sites, allowing video management of any component through a unified configuration and user interface. Operators can drag and drop cameras from the Pro-Watch hardware tree into MAXPRO VMS and can use advanced features such as subject pursuit to select a central camera with a single mouse-click to track a target through a set of sequential cameras.Pro-Watch 3.80 also features enhanced integration with Honeywell's Galaxy® Dimension GD-264 and GD-512 intrusion panels to ensure a seamless security experience for end users with fewer accidental alarms and resulting fines. If a user is granted access to a building but does not have the authority to disarm the system, the integration can deny access and prevent a false alarm. In addition, critical areas are automatically armed upon exit of personnel.An advanced badging option combines badge holder and card data into easy-to-use views with access permissions by card. Advanced badging makes it easy to train badging staff and HR, and built-in saved ‘favourite' searches, audit views, and compliance reports help those individuals more effectively manage badges.Pro-Watch 3.80 also enables active monitoring and surveillance of large buildings or campuses with enhanced maps. This advanced feature includes intercom support that provides the operator with an additional layer of environmental awareness. Each door in Pro-Watch can be associated with both an intercom and a camera, allowing the dispatcher to utilise real-time video for visual verification while simultaneously communicating over the intercom. For voice functionality, the command interface facilitates operator interactions with remote intercom stations directly from the operator's personal computer. A dispatcher can interact with intercom stations via a toolbar shortcut, context-sensitive menus in the hardware tree accessed with a simple right-click, or via intercom icons added to maps."Pro-Watch is a business management tool for those who want to know who's in their buildings and tracking who's coming and going," said René von Franquemont, access control product manager, Honeywell Security Group. "It offers superior integration with third party products such as Novell and SAP to streamline mustering, visitor management, and other HR functions to help organisations interact more effectively with personnel in their buildings in real-time."Pro-Watch is available via Honeywell Integrated Security Authorised Integrators in four scalable editions (Lite, Professional, Corporate and Enterprise) that allow system expansion without changing the user interface or database structure.
