LILIN’s megapixel outdoor IP cameras feature edge computing for object counting

LILIN is taking quality and value “to the next level” with the new ZMR8122X-P bullet IP camera. Perfect for outdoor installations, the ZMR8122X-P delivers Full HD 1080p (2 MP) video at up to 30 frames per second (fps), while also offering end users maximum protection against dust, dirt, and water.

On-board Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS) enables security integrators to tailor the ZMR8122X-P to detect the objects and situations that matter most to the purchasing end user, in turn opening up new possibilities for customised applications.

IVS combines edge-level advanced motion detection, designated Tripwire, that allows a detection line to be drawn within a camera image – Semaphore + Tripwire – when a combination of events need to occur for an alarm to trigger. Object counting enables businesses, for example, to obtain accurate information on the number of people who enter or leave their premises.

To achieve excellent depth of field, the ZMR8122X-P is P-IRIS supported, meaning that it automatically adjusts like an auto iris yet prevents blurred images that can occur when an auto iris over-corrects for bright lights.

With P-IRIS, the camera is the ideal solution for situations where light is constantly and quickly changing, no matter how close or how far the subject is located. True day/night recording is enhanced by infrared LEDs and LILIN’s SenseUp Plus enabling clear night-time images at a distance of up to 115 feet or more.

The ZMR8122X-P bullet IP camera is for those security professionals who require detailed, high-resolution surveillance of challenging locations such as hotels, car parks and loading bays. It’s the latest addition to LILIN’s portfolio of advanced IP video technology engineered to improve ease of use for operators, simplify installation for contractors and deliver stable, high-quality video for end users regardless of lighting conditions to help protect people and facilities. 

Built-in I/O ports allow the connection of external devices to help enhance alarm signalling and also enable features such as two-way audio.

Optimum multifaceted CCTV solution for ultra-high security introduced by EyeLynx

A modular integrated CCTV solution with wireless 4G router, multi-camera and recorder has hit the market with the aim of installations for ultra-high security sectors.

Pharos Optimus from software security expert EyeLynx allows up to four configurable devices to be mounted on a mast, meaning that site security operators can deploy the perfect combination of day, night and infrared cameras, lighting, detection and audio technologies on a single PTZ unit.

Highly robust to repel extremes of temperature, moisture and corrosive chemicals, Pharos Optimus models can cope with marine applications and other harsh environments such as industrial chemical plants and the desert.

EyeLynx, which is part of the perimeter protection group Zaun, expects the top end of its Pharos range to sell well to energy infrastructure operators, such as oil, gas, electricity and nuclear networks across Europe and the Middle East.

EPR100-RADAR-sideA-print

Optimus is deployed with configurable modules including Full HD 1080p and VGA thermal cameras, ANPR, visible or infrared LEDs and amplified horn speakers. Adaptive LED lighting controls brightness in response to ambient light levels.

Also available is a combined IR/white light LED module capable of illuminating subjects over 100 metres away.

Evidence gathering for prosecutions

CEO Jay Patel explained: “Optimus offers the greatest protection against crime and vandalism at a fraction of the price of security guarding, and also gathers vital HD video evidence for prosecution in the event of a security breach. Site security operators can detect threats early with advanced sensors such as RADAR, on-fence acoustic cable and video analytics integrated with SharpView.”

EyeLynx’s Pharos system is said to be the only true rapid deployment HD surveillance system on the market with Edge Recording Cluster (ERC) capability to incorporate an intelligent recorder, management software and wireless communications all in the same unit.

Cameras record HD 24/7. Whenever the perimeter is compromised or a potential intruder approaches too close to the site perimeter, Pharos will send a snapshot alert to the Control Room for visual verification using Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G or ADSL (or even to assigned personal mobile devices, such as the police or the nearest member of security staff to the breach).

SharpView integrates with access control, fire and intruder alarms and facial recognition systems to further enhance safety and security at multi-site facilities.

Precise movements at full zoom

Optimus incorporates a micro-stepping motor with no wearing parts ensuring smooth silent movement and zero backlash, while a speed range of 10,000:1 delivers precise movements even at full zoom.

EyeLynx has also unveiled an innovative mounting bracket for its Pharos pole-mounted devices complete with anti-tamper and anti-theft enhancements.

Hikvision’s Easy IP Solution set to offer “more advanced features” for end users in SMBs

Hikvision is expanding its Easy IP Solution family of cameras and NVRs in a continued quest to make CCTV surveillance “easier, quicker and smarter”. The Easy IP range now includes more advanced features, such as 4 Megapixel ultra-high resolution, 120 dB WDR and H.264+ optimised Smart codec, etc, all of which willo assist SMBs.

The new Easy IP Solution makes installation easy and secure for all end users. The PoE-equipped NVRs mean that the need for a separate power supply to each camera is eliminated, while the inclusion of the 4 Megapixel panoramic fisheye camera allows the entire coverage of a store or office rather than having to deploy several fixed cameras.

The recessed-mount dome cameras also enable installers to simply use existing downlight installations. Cameras with motorised lenses and PTZ functionality eliminate the need for post-installation camera and lens direction positioning.

The Hikvision Easy IP Solution product range

The Hikvision Easy IP Solution product range

As well as PoE meaning that just a single Ethernet cable is required for each camera, the Easy IP Solution includes a complete range of Wi-Fi cameras and NVRs featuring auto-detection, auto-connection and easy access.

At the same time, the PoE NVRs automatically allocate an IP address to each camera when connected, in turn completely removing any potential delays with configuring IP address forwarding and saving time in larger installations.

Easy storage

Featuring on-board storage on many of the cameras, Hikvision’s Easy IP Solution also offers high compression efficiency codecs to reduce the burden placed on the transmission and storage elements of the system. This is particularly significant for HD IP systems where bandwidth and storage costs can be a major concern. A standard H.264 camera with Full HD 1080p resolution and one month of recording can result in about 1.2 Tb of space being consumed.

The Hikvision H.264+ optimised Smart codec technology helps to reduce storage consumption by up to two-thirds, with Full HD 1080p resolution for one month consuming just 462 Gb.

All Hikvision Easy IP Solution cameras support the EZVIZ Cloud – P2P service, which enables remote access from your smart phone. This means you can view the live video and recorded video files from your house, store, office or enterprise anytime and anywhere.

EZVIZ also includes intelligent alarm support so that any intrusion or emergency events can be precisely recognised and resolved.

The Easy IP Solution’s range of indoor and outdoor cameras is designed to meet a wide variety of needs and includes bullet, dome, panoramic, cube and PTZ styles. For instance, the 1 Megapixel and 2 Megapixel mini cameras with their on-board storage capability will be well suited to smaller business installations, while the 4 Megapixel ultra-HD units with H.264+ Smart codecs ensure high quality 1080p resolution images during the day and night.

Evve Surveillance develops specialist LR325K longe-range Full HD surveillance cameras

Evve Surveillance has released the LR325K, an ultra long-range Full HD 1080P surveillance camera designed for use in environments requiring exceptional image clarity over long distances. Typical applications will involve ports, borders, Critical National Infrastructure and Safe City projects as well as military bases.

The LR325K can detect the presence of objects at 35 km, recognise them in terms of category at 15 km and Identify them at 5 km using The Johnson Criteria. The Johnson Criteria were developed by the US Military for evidential surveillance and are now used as a performance benchmark for civilian and military optical surveillance capability.

Created in-house by the company’s own R&D team, the LR325K delivers “outstanding” HD-SDI colour image clarity based on a 120x optical zoom lens. In-camera processing exploits corrective modes to optimise performance in adverse conditions such as fog and mist.

A premium IR cut filter specially developed for the product optimises night-time and low-light performance.

Evve Surveillance's LR325K camera

Evve Surveillance’s LR325K camera

The camera’s optional laser IR illuminator extends capability even further, allowing full 24-hour operation in all lighting conditions. Use of the camera can therefore be offered in covert or semi-covert formats for military applications in battlefield terrain containing potentially hostile parties.

If deployment must be completely covert for fear of reprisal, Evve Surveillance offers EMCCD and SWIR versions.

Dedicated pan/tilt head developed

Evve Surveillance has augmented the optical capabilities of the camera by developing a dedicated pan/tilt head with anti-backlash gearing, variable speed and high resolution pre-set recall for absolute positioning to +/-0.015 degrees (an “exceptional level of accuracy” not found in commercial off-the-shelf pan and tilt units).

This assists operators at border perimeters where the camera must regularly observe checkpoints or known points of vulnerability that might be 40 km distant. An error of one or two degrees can mean missing such a target so accurate pre-set recall is a vital feature.

The LR325K incorporates an overview camera which is essential for the operator since it allows colleagues to help by giving general spatial awareness and co-ordinates such as the location of the small distant target in relation to a large landmark. Any operator with experience of using highly-focused optical equipment across long distances on land or at sea and in harbour environments will immediately appreciate the potential assistance offered by this mode of working.

Every aspect of the LR325K has been developed to maximise end user benefits. The design is modular in three main elements meaning the weight of individual modules (at under 20 kg) is manageable for rapid deployment in the field and for air transport in a variety of civilian and military craft. The interconnected design also makes in-field support far easier than that which would be possible with other systems.

Intuitive joystick control allows the operator to track a target using a combination of the main camera and the overview camera. Evve Surveillance has invested heavily in the user interface to ensure that the operator can concentrate on the images being seen rather than control of the system.

Multiple cooling systems

Designed to operate in extreme environments and climates, the LR325K has multiple cooling systems to stabilise temperatures within the enclosures at day or night.

The LR325K is produced in HD-SDI, analogue and IP versions. It’s available to order now and can be custom-painted to suit any environment or application. The range will soon be extended to offer short wavelength IR (SWIR) and electron-multiplying (EMCCD) sensor versions.

An OEM package is also available for system Integrators as well as a bespoke modification service for special applications and projects.

End users urged to “energise” CCTV solutions with Xeno’s new Nitro range

Xeno has announced that it can now offer customers full HD resolution over standard RG59 coax at ranges of 300 metres thanks to the company’s new Nitro range of cameras and DVRs.

The range brings “superb” 1080P image quality to the end user at an “extremely cost-effective” price point. Available options include eyeball, bullet and vandal-resistant dome cameras, as well as 4, 8 and 16-channel DVRs.

In order to allow integrators a seamless transition to the Nitro range, the DVRs operate in exactly the same way as the XDR960 range with no additional training required.

The same Central Management Software can be used to connect to these and also the range of Xeno IP NVRS. The Nitro range affords integrators “the perfect opportunity” to upgrade their existing analogue customers to Full HD resolution.

Xeno product manager Bob Forehand told Risk UK: “Nitro allows integrators to offer their customers the advantages of Full HD resolution, but without the complexity of IP networking. In addition, they can use any existing coax cabling. thereby keeping costs to a minimum and simplifying the overall upgrade process.”

Forehand went on to comment: “As these cameras are dual format AHD and 960H, integrators only need to stock one type of camera to be able to service both old and new installations. This is an extremely exciting development in the analogue world and offers end users a cost-effective upgrade path to Full HD.”

DVS and Lantec Security enhance Sand Martins Golf Club surveillance system with Hikvision technology

Video surveillance solutions developer Hikvision and systems installer Lantec Security have recently completed an upgrade project at the prestigious Sand Martins Golf Club in Surrey with assistance from Hikvision’s UK distributor DVS.

The Sand Martins Golf Club is located near Wokingham and, only recently, the management team decided it was time to upgrade the club’s existing standard definition analogue surveillance system.

Given that the course is spread across many acres of land, CCTV is paramount for the security and smooth running of the location. Steve Lane of Lantec Security headed up the installation project for the new surveillance system, all the while working closely with DVS. A full HD system has been designed and implemented using Hikvision surveillance solutions.

The project consists of 16 Hikvision Full HD cameras, among them vandal-resistant IR domes, bullet cameras and even a newly-released Lightfighter model installed to watch over the club’s grounds.

Hikvision’s ANPR system is employed in the car park, recording the number of every vehicle that enters the compound. The large field of view on the ANPR solution means that it can also serve as a general overview system.

The installation even boasts an auto tracking dome on the 18th hole that streams live images directly into the clubhouse.

End-to-end solution

“We decided to choose a Hikvision system as the user interface is ideal,” explained Steve Lane. “Using Hikvision’s products also allowed us to provide an end-to-end solution covering ANPR, internal areas and the retail space at the club while providing an auto tracking dome which helps with player traffic in addition to general security around the clubhouse.”

Lane added: “The 3 Megapixel picture quality rendered by the cameras on site represents a massive improvement on the original analogue system. The end result will be a great help on any future incidents due to the superior image quality that’s now rendered.”

In conclusion, Lane told Risk UK: “DVS was very helpful in assisting with the design of the security infrastructure.”

Andrew Hall, a PGA professional at Sand Martins Golf Club and overseer of the new security installation, commented: “The system is extremely sophisticated and much more user friendly than the previous one. It’s now very quick and easy for us to search for any footage we need. The ability to view images from a mobile device is also fantastic. Those images are very clear, which is so important when there are any issues to be resolved.”
