AI in video surveillance to form focus of Hikvision stand at IFSEC 2017

IFSEC 2017 Video surveillance giant Hikvision will be exhibiting its latest technology at IFSEC International 2017. The theme of the company s stand (E800) will be on pioneering artificial intelligence technology for video surveillance. The stand will feature the new Turbo 4.0 series, H.265+ codec and thermal cameras, among other innovations.

Visitors will get to see new advances in surveillance technology, including a new product and set of technologies emerging from the deep learning trend within the wider IT industry. Hikvision is taking part in the IFSEC conference. Andy Coles, Hikvision s key account manager for the UK & Ireland, will join other industry figures on a panel discussion about the future of video surveillance, touching on artificial intelligence or deep learning and its use in vertical markets, and the importance of security ecosystems. Large events like IFSEC are important to us because they give us the chance to connect with our partners and customers. It s also great to see what the industry as a whole is doing and to be part of its development into the future, says Coles. A Hikvision installer recently won a major retail contract in East London. Gallions Reach Shopping Park in Newham needed an upgrade for its dated and unreliable CCTV system. Impressed by installers Pacific Security the shopping centre opted for Turbo analogue equipment from the world s largest surveillance brand by sales volume. We used a Hikvision DS-6900UDI decoder to provide HD 1080p images to two 42-inch and four 22-inch monitors, said William Mesher of Pacific Security.

The operators are equipped with DS-1600KI touchscreen network keyboards, which allow them to view and manipulate images easily and intuitively. We ve found that they are ideal for simplifying the operator s tasks, and are able to be connected wirelessly if required. Find out more about this case study.

Manything to integrate video monitoring app with Hikvision R6 platform

IFSEC 2017 Manything has been working with Hikvision to integrate its software with Hikvision R6 platform IP cameras in time for launch at IFSEC 2017. Manything provides an instant cloud for network cameras, so users can watch live feeds, access stored footage from the cloud and remotely control cameras from the Manything app or web viewer. Manything provides a brilliant cloud storage solution which can work alongside the Hikvision NVR for additional back up, said Jason Yang, Hikvision UK general manager.

Manything is also integrating its software with Axis cameras, which will launch later this year. No port-forwarding Manything automatically discovers compatible cameras on the network. One tap of the app adds Manything software to the camera in a set-up process that takes a few minutes, with no port-forwarding or router configuration. Network cameras running the Manything software are non-discoverable and have UPnP and NAT disabled. The camera password is encrypted and is not transmitted outside the local network. The Manything app is optimised to work in poor network conditions so if uplink is weak the app will adjust the recording specifications to ensure motion is still captured. Recorded events are saved in the cloud. Manything can replace the need for an NVR/DVR or work alongside these devices for additional back up. Depending on the subscription plan, footage stored in the cloud is accessible for varying amounts of time.

Manything is seeking partners to resell its cloud service for network cameras. For national distributors, in some cases Manything will offer a white label version of the app and web viewer. Installers linked to the distributor can upload their branding and contact details so their end users see installer/distributor co-branding when they use the app. Distributors will also have a branded web portal (or its API) to manage installer and end user accounts. Regional installers who resell directly from Manything can upload their branding and contact details into the existing Manything app so their end users see installer/Manything co-branding. They ll also have access to the Manything web portal to manage end user accounts.

Hikvision secures Oroville Chinese Temple

Hikvision secures Oroville Chinese Temple The Oroville Chinese Temple and Gardens in Sacramento, California are being protected by a bespoke surveillance installation courtesy of Hikvision. North of Sacramento, in the city of Oroville, the Chinese Temple stands as a California landmark and an epitome of Chinese culture. Playing the role of a museum, it’s home to hundreds of priceless Chinese artifacts including embroidered tapestries, parade parasols, medicinal herbs and gold (among others).

Beyond its rich cultural heritage, the Chinese Temple is also open to the public and provides worship services for devotees far and beyond the city. Thousands have flocked to the Temple during traditional Chinese festivals to offer their prayers and immerse in its tranquil and spiritual surroundings. Indeed, its traditional architecture and intricate decorations have earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places as a key attraction for locals and tourists alike.

Lack of watchful eyes As stated, the Chinese Temple showcases a wealth of Chinese relics for public viewing. Visitors are confronted by a seemingly endless array of Chinese culture. However, the limited number of staff and the lack of a large organised Security Department have rendered the Chinese Temple highly prone to theft and burglary.

The layout of the building resembles traditional Chinese architecture, with pillars and angles that make it challenging for caretakers to monitor activities when it’s flooded with visitors. Reliance on public law enforcement is not an efficient solution due to lag between the times of reporting and the arrival of law enforcers. No wonder, then, that the Chinese Temple’s management face a nearly insurmountable challenge of extending their watchful eyes over petty crimes, intelligently camouflaged by wave after wave of visitors.

Of course, the loss of – or any damage to – property on site is unacceptable. Defending spiritual grounds All is not lost, though, and when there’s a will, there’s a way. Turning to modern technology, Hikvision’s centralised security camera system emerged as a perfect solution to the Chinese Temple management team’s growing need for surveillance.

The choice was made to use Hikvision’s DS-2CD752 (I)FB(H) and DS-2CD762(I)FB(H) vandal proof network dome cameras to “defend these spiritual prenmises”. The sizes of the DS-2CD752(I)FB(H) and DS-2CD762(I)FB(H) network cameras are 160 mm x 134 mm (6.30” × 5.30”). They’re ufficiently small to be discretely mounted on the ceilings so as to avoid the public eye and yet provide quality supervision of the premises.

The DS-2CD752(I)FB(H) is a 2.0 megapixel camera with an angle view of 101°-30.4°, while the DS-2CD762(I)FB(H) has a 89°-24° angle, in turn providing a wide viewing range. Both cameras support audio and video streams, with maximum image resolutions of 1600 x 1200 and 1280 x 960 respectively. More importantly, perhaps, they support Ethernet technologies and can be combined with other Hikvision products to form more comprehensive security solutions.

Comprehensive solution for a complex layout The cameras enable the Chinese Temple’s managers to closely monitor all activities on the premises with minimal manpower, thus saving costs and minimising the use of security officers. Both cameras can be linked to an alarm system so as to provide surveillance around the clock. A small security task force is sufficient to monitor activities at the Temple through the “meticulous lenses” of the cameras.

Unauthorized activities and emergency events such as vandalism and injury can be easily spotted. Security personnel then trigger the necessary alarm to alert the Chinese Temple’s occupants and neighboring law enforcement agencies. This is particularly useful during Chinese festivals when unlawful behavior can easily go unnoticed amid the ceaseless crowds.

Vice Mayor Thil Chan Wilcox, who holds the Chinese Temple dear to her heart given the historical links between its history and her family, is said to be “immensely impressed” by the capabilities of Hikvision’s technologies, commenting on the simplicity and depth of the solution. “The cameras are very powerful and easily installed. A perfect fit for the layout. Without them, it would have been impossible to monitor everything that’s going on,” she said. “Indeed, even the most unnoticeable gestures from visitors cannot escape the watchful lens of the strategically positioned cameras.

All it takes is a staff member or two to peruse the screens from the office and everything is within the Chinese Temple’s control. The wide coverage of the cameras came as something of a surprise to Hikvision’s installation officer, Larry Tracy. He explained that they “installed fewer cameras than originally intended because they worked far better than expected.” Even the weather is overcome Humidity, dust and heat are the banes of electronic devices, and the intricate circuitry of many electronics has often fallen prey to the hands of Mother Nature.

However, the design team at Hikvisionafforded careful consideration to these issues. The robust physical designs of these network cameras enable them to withstand wide temperature ranges under different weather conditions, thereby reducing maintenance costs in the process. No more malfunctioning in bad weather, no more routine checks for operational issues.

These network cameras provide the same optimum performance regardless of the weather.

Chinese Temple staff members have praised their rugged designs: a single installation for sustainable satisfaction.
