Dell EMC Q&A: “Customers don’t want vendors pointing the finger at each other when there’s a problem; they want integrated…

Dell EMC specialises in hybrid cloud and big-data solutions that are built on converged infrastructure, servers, storage and cybersecurity technologies for enterprise customers. Nicholas Thermenos, the company s director of sales and marketing for surveillance and security in the Americas, spoke to our US-based media partner SecuritySolutionsWatch about the video surveillance landscape and how the industry is meeting soaring demand for video data storage. SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Thank you for joining us today, Nick.

Before drilling down into how Dell EMC is making the world safer, please tell us about your background. Nicholas Thermenos: Since joining Dell EMC I ve been in a variety of technology leadership positions. I m currently responsible for our video surveillance sales strategy and business for the Americas. Prior to joining Dell EMC I spent 11 years at Microsoft in both technical and business leadership roles. SecuritySolutionsWatch.com: Manchester, Paris, Boston the security environment has never been more challenging. What trends are you seeing in the field with your customers as the never-ending race continues to make better decisions faster vs. the bad guys? Nicholas Thermenos: Video Surveillance is going through a fast-paced digital transformation from low cost, decentralized data repositories to true Enterprise Class, centralized infrastructure requirements. The increase in IP cameras, retention times, and the assurance that data will be available when needed, is moving customers to find new way to retain, store and access video surveillance data.

Business leaders are beginning to recognize that there are valuable insights to be gained from the vast amount of data that is being collected. Customers, particular business leaders, are looking to capitalize on the data contained in these video images. Both of these trends are changing the landscape of storing and accessing video.

Wavestore launches version v6.8 of its video management software

VMS Wavestore has launched v6.8 of its open-platform, Linux-based video management software (VMS). The latest incarnation includes support for VMWare ESXi, which brings virtualization to the Wavestore VMS platform. Operators with virtual machines, which can license the VMS via the internet or a virtual-machine dongle, can reduce energy, software, and IT administration costs.

Version 6.8 also introduces to Wavestore s WaveView client software dynamic search and instant display of ad-hoc groups of devices. For instance, type in ground floor will filter down to all devices with ground floor in its name. Our one screen, total control philosophy drives us to ensure that our Partners can seamlessly bring a wide range of technologies together so that operators can easy work day-to-day with Wavestore s VMS , says Julian Inman, Head of Product Management. Wavestore s VMS running in a virtualised environment can even be used in conjunction with traditional Wavestore NVRs/HVRs and the operator can simply see and control the entire mixed group from a single screen if they wish. We bring together multiple devices, such as cameras, access control, intruder detection and advanced analytics; and now multiple server technologies all with the same easy to use front end to deliver a fully scalable and future-proof solution . The latest version of Wavestore s VMS will now integrate with the latest smart IP camera feature sets from Hikvision and Uniview, the AllGoVision analytics suite, while individual detection zones from Optex Redscan detectors can now be associated with specific actions. Now shipping with all new orders, Wavestore v6.8 is available as an upgrade for existing users with active upgrade bundles. The package comes in a block of six successive in-version upgrades without any time limit imposed.

IFSEC 2017 in review: Borders & Infrastructure Expo makes triumphant debut and Brian Cox draws biggest-ever keynote audience 

Professor Brian Cox gave a thought-provoking lecture on the origins of the universe in front of a record audience at the Honeywell-sponsored Keynote Theatre in Safety and Health Expo 2017, which was co-located with IFSEC 2017. Addressing a packed audience, the TV presenter and physicist extraordinaire said he had asked the organisers if they needed me to talk about safety and security. They said no; just talk about the universe.

Other keynotes included double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes, rugby union Referee Nigel Owens MBE and Falklands War veteran Simon Weston CBE. Product launches Elsewhere, IFSEC International which took place over three days between 20-20 June at London ExCeL was, as usual, the chosen launchpad for a plethora of brand-new, cutting-edge products. Among the innovations unveiled at the show was Veracity s end-to-end command and control system, Edesix s new body-worn camera series, Calipsa s AI-powered video monitoring platform and Redvision s quietest, fastest ever PTZ and mould-breaking rugged camera enclosure. IDIS, meanwhile, introduced a new seven-year warranty the longest in the industry. Read more about the products launched at IFSEC here. Borders & Infrastructure Expo Perhaps the most significant new feature introduced for the 2017 edition was Borders & Infrastructure Expo. Sponsored by Genetec, this show within a show featured the Drone Zone, BRE Global/LPCB Attack Testing Zone, VIP Meeting Service, JSaRC and the Borders & Infrastructure Theatre. Former IATA (International Air Transport Association) chief John Hedley argued that we re making life too easy for terrorists in the Borders & Infrastructure Theatre on day one. We also reported on how police and security drone use on the rise.

Speaking of drones, The Drone Zone wowed the crowds with live airborne demonstrations of drone technology from Yuneec and Aviat Drones, among other innovative developers and service providers, with support from the UK Drone Show. Installer World An area of the show dedicated to installers was another IFSEC first. Sponsored by RISCO, Installer World featured the Tool Zone where, courtesy of Anglia Tools, visitors could sample a wide range of hand and power tools and take advantage of exclusive discounts workwear, the Engineers of Tomorrow competition, recruitment consultants and a networking bar all in one place. Installers, engineers and integrators could test and trial more than 10,000 of the latest products from leading suppliers such as Hikvision and Panasonic. embedded content Videos and photos The whole experience was documented expertly once again by IFSEC TV (courtesy of Silverstream), with exhibitors demonstrating some of their latest innovations to camera as they did to visitors. Among the interviewees was Martin Gren, who co-founded the surveillance giant in 1984 and recently topped the security manufacturers/service providers category in our roll call of the Top 50 influencers in security & fire 2017. Watch some highlights from across the three days here or check out some of the best photos from London ExCeL. As is becoming an IFSEC Global tradition, we challenged security technology vendors at IFSEC 2017 to pitch their products to camera in just 30 seconds. The challenge was taken up by Paxton, HID Global, Pelco, CSL, AxxonSoft, Dahua, Uniview Technologies, Vanderbilt, Kedacom, LT Security, Promise Technology and Genetec.

Seminars The seminar theatres were particularly busy in a year when security-related issues have rarely been out of the national and international headlines. In the Security Management Theatre, a packed audience heard how video analytics was oversold and underutilised but key to preventing terror attacks. We also reported from the same theatre on the trends shaping the future of access control. The Tavcom Theatre, meanwhile, featured presentations on cybersecurity, preparing CCTV evidence for the criminal courts and how to optimise your network for CCTV, among other things.
