Judges impressed by technology that closes security gaps

Judges were impressed by the way IDIS’s HE-1101 technology provides a cost-effective route to increased security control, optimal monitoring and enhanced situational awareness.

The HE-1101 allows operators to oversee multiple applications all from a single monitor by simply connecting hardware that has a VGA or HDMI output. So, in practice, as businesses grow or adapt to evolving threats, this innovative encoder allows them to manage everything — including video, access control, building management, intruder, fire and point of sale (PoS) systems — from a single user interface. Users can choose from the option of totally license free video management software (VMS), IDIS Center, or the advanced and modular, enterprise-level IDIS Solution Suite.

Delivering true user-friendliness, the HDMI/VGA output is displayed and recorded exactly as a camera within the fully-functional IDIS VMS options. It allows operators remote mouse and keyboard control of integrated applications. This eliminates the need for expensive and complex integration -— and constant updates to interfaces — which are often associated with security management systems. It benefits installers through fast implementation and maintenance and delivers IDIS’s signature low total cost of ownership for end users.

Click for the website... James Min, Managing Director, IDIS Europe, welcomed the Benchmark Innovation Awards shortlisting, saying it was the result of continual focus on innovation that benefits customers.

James Min said: "I am delighted at this latest recognition of our mission to innovate. The HE-1101 is another great example of IDIS pushing at technical boundaries in order to improve product design and put more control in the hands of our users"

Vista covers every angle with its latest IP and analogue camera launches

Vista is proud to announce the newest additions to the VK2 and HDA ranges

click for website
Click for the website...

The camera launches were supported by the introduction of the new ‘universal’ brackets which greatly simplify installation and were developed in line with ‘Voice of Customer’ feedback.

Click image for the Vista website

The collective aim of the cameras and brackets is to reduce installation time on site, therefore minimising cost. The use of the latest technology within the cameras and the intelligent product design mean that excellent quality images can be produced and adjustments can easily be made to meet future requirements.

The VK2 range has been developed with the customer in mind. The cameras are designed to reduce bandwidth and storage requirements along with minimising the time required on site installing and adjusting the cameras. Their ability to stream highly efficient H.265 video format, combined with Vista’s advanced “Hi-Stream” bandwidth reducing function, means that storage and bandwidth requirements can be up to 75% lower than that of an equivalent H.264 stream. The VK2 cameras are available in 2MP and 4MP formats and produce crisper images compared to those achieved by general IP cameras. This is as a result of a user definable min/max shutter speed, True Wide Dynamic Range and IR Illumination.

The VK2L range has been designed for those who require a high quality video image at a cost effective price. These brilliant value cameras reduce bandwidth and storage requirements like their VK2 siblings and, due to a wide angle lens, minimise the number of cameras required on site.

The key benefits shared by the VK2 and VK2L ranges can be found below:

Compatible with all modern NVRs and VMS - H.265/H.264 compression formats making for a flexible system

Reduced required levels of bandwidth and storage - Significantly reduced when used in H.265 mode and as a result of Hi-Stream Region of Interest which adds greater compression to areas with no motion

Ensure a much crisper frozen image - User definable min/max shutter speed provides much clearer images than general IP cameras

The launch also included an analogue offering to set you apart. The newly released HDA cameras are capable of providing full HD 1080p resolution in TVI HDA format over coax cabling and provide a very flexible solution. A wide range of features makes them suitable for many internal and external applications as well as providing excellent quality images without the requirement of an IP knowledge base. The HDA range makes for the perfect transition from analogue to IP and can be used in conjunction with existing analogue infrastructure.

All of the IP and analogue cameras included in the launch are perfect for use with the Vista Viper range of NVRs and DVRs and ONVIF compliance ensures they can also be used on multiple manufacturers’ recording platforms if existing systems are in place. Alongside the cameras, the introduction of a new selection of ‘universal’ brackets simplifies installation and the process of selecting the correct bracket.

Access Control

Users of the Paxton Net2 access control are able to view event-driven video captured by high definition IP network cameras connected to Wisenet WAVE VMS. The integration, which is achievable via a free Paxton Net2 Plugin, provides the ability to visually verify the identity of anyone attempting to gain access to a site or sensitive areas of a building, as well as provide video verification of alarm incidents.

Video Storage

Wisenet WAVE has also been integrated with Veracity’s COLDSTORE™ ‘direct to disk’ storage system which negates the need to install network video recorders (NVRs) to record and store the high definition images captured by Wisenet open platform network cameras. Despite its simplified architecture, COLDSTORE™ is able to support audio and metadata as well as video, whilst offering innovative features such as camera-level fail-over, resilience to network interruptions and optional fully-redundant recording.

Bob (H.Y.) Hwang Ph.D., Managing Director of Hanwha Techwin Europe, said: "These integrations are important to system integrators because Wisenet IP network video surveillance cameras are now regularly being specified alongside Net2 and COLDSTORE™ as part of integrated electronic security solutions. We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work closely with the Paxton and Veracity technical teams in order to achieve the integrations. These are further examples of how WE MOVE with trust’ with technology partners to deliver added value to our mutual customers"

Paxton’s N2 access control and Veracity’s COLDSTORE™ join a wide range of other products and solutions which have been integrated with WiseNet WAVE, including AI Tech analytics and NCR point of sale systems. CLICK HERE to see the list.

Wisenet WAVE

Introduced in January 2018, Wisenet WAVE makes it almost effortless to monitor up to 64 high-definition video streams. An auto-discover feature ensures connected cameras and a wide range of third-party IP network devices can be addressed and set up in just minutes. An intuitive ‘drag & drop’ tool makes setting up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall effortless with customisable layouts and sizes.

Other key features include a virtual PTZ which, with just a simple click of the mouse, enables operators to zoom in to see close-up detail of any suspicious activity whilst motion detection and video analytics support can be configured to generate alerts when user-defined incidents occur.

Fault reporting, integrated alcohol testing and machine start controlled access to fork truck and fleet management, making sure only qualified staff can operate, are just some of the processes available where Traka can help to keep audit control using the latest intelligent key management.

Traka will be available to discuss tailored customer solutions when required to secure a wide variety of equipment, including PDAs and scanners, alongside increasingly used body worn camera technology to present accountability, efficiency and significant cost savings.

Steve Bumphrey, Sales Director at Traka, says: "The implications for not taking ownership of health and safety, both from a human perspective and business case, are increasingly significant. With severe fines that can prove the downfall for any business, and even immediate imprisonment becoming a reality for those caught.

Our ambition on stand M140 is to prove how simple measures can make a difference. Whilst we know every business has different health and safety requirements, Traka systems can help control, manage and audit the use of every key or asset in a secure setting. And with ease of installation, we can ensure visibility and traceability at all times to offer total peace of mind"

Visitors will be able to see live displays of a range of Traka’s specialist systems, including its popular Touch series, presenting its ability to either operate as standalone systems requiring no network capabilities or networked via Traka’s exclusive Web software.

Traka’s DockSafe and loading management will also be on show as a simple install addition designed as a drive off prevention system, to stop vehicles prematurely leaving Goods Out bays of distribution centres.
