All MOBOTIX IoT camera solutions integrated in Gentec’s cloud-based Stratocast VMS

MOBOTIX has taken another step towards integrating its technology within partner systems with the news that, after extensive development processes and testing procedures, all MOBOTIX Internet of Things (IoT) camera solutions have now been integrated in Gentec’s cloud-based Stratocast video management system (VMS).

VMS specialist Genetec has been one of MOBOTIX’s most important technology partners for many years now. “The integration of our camera systems in Stratocast, whose high level of cyber security is put to the test in annual stress tests and evaluations, is another milestone in the long-term co-operative relationship that exists between MOBOTIX and Genetec,” explained Hartmut Sprave, CTO at MOBOTIX.

Thomas Dieregsweiler, head of product management for MOBOTIX, added: “When we make our technology available and integrate it with other solutions, it’s paramount to us that we don’t compromise on the cyber security of our systems. Genetec and MOBOTIX speak the same language. We’re one of the world’s first camera manufacturers to successfully integrate with the Stratocast solution.”

The cloud-based Stratocast is designed for SMEs. When using Stratocast, end customers can always rest assured that their company is protected and that seamless operation is ensured. Using a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone, Stratocast guarantees access to live videos and video recordings that are stored ‘cyber-safe’ in the cloud.

MOBOTIXGenetecIntegration

The end user themselves requires only basic computer expertise, as no computer infrastructure such as additional servers have to be installed. No maintenance or updates will be required. This makes solutions affordable and very transparent for the end user. They only pay by usage.

Stratocast allows the end user to circumvent typical server-based problems such as additional IT infrastructure or employees, lack of storage space, loss of records and unscaleable prices or functionalities.

The scope of functions provided can also be extended by using the Genetec Security Center for central monitoring. This means the cloud-based network can grow and develop according to the end user’s needs.

Successful co-operation

As is the case for MOBOTIX, cyber security and data protection are the highest priority for Genetec. For example, all communication between the on-site system and the cloud is fully-encrypted with Transport Layer Security. Genetec guarantees 99.5% availability (availability and access to video). All data is backed up three-fold in the cloud.

Genetec works exclusively with hardware and software partners who meet the highest quality standards for cyber security and data protection.

“We have integrated our technology into Stratocast’s technology over the last six months,” explained Thomas Lausten, CEO of MOBOTIX. “All test series were completed successfully. The quality of our video solutions combined with a keen focus on cyber security and our global sales network is how we became one of the first camera manufacturers to integrate our technology in the cloud-based Stratocast . It proves once again that the decentralised intelligence of our camera systems makes MOBOTIX one of the most important players on the global market.”

OPTEX showcases high security intrusion detection solutions at Security Essen

Next month, the OPTEX EMEA team will be showcasing its range of intrusion detection and perimeter protection sensors on Stand 5B48 in Hall 5 at Security Essen 2018.

The global sensor manufacturer’s stand will include a broad range of applications for its intelligent intrusion sensors and demonstrate how they can further enhance the overall effectiveness and reliability of CCTV and integrated security systems.

OPTEX will be showcasing its multi-layered intrusion detection capabilities for commercial premises and critical infrastructure sites. The company will demonstrate, for example, how a fenced perimeter can be protected using fibre optic sensors from a group company, FiberSensys. Alternatively, ‘virtual’ perimeter walls can be generated by using its REDSCAN laser-scan detectors. The newly-launched RLS-3060SH Version 8 enables detection up to 100 metres in vertical mode.

OPTEXSecurityEssen2018

To protect the approaches to a building, OPTEX will be demonstrating both its long-range motion sensors. The SIP Series sensors are capable of detecting objects within an area of 100×4 metres or 50×30 metres and provide three independent zones to drive cameras positions. The new version of the RLS-3060 LiDAR has more application-specific modes. There’s now an extended range for a pre-warning zone beyond a 30-metre radius up to 50 metres.

For asset protection, and particularly to protect high-value or potentially hazardous items, the high resolution REDSCAN RLS-2020 can create a virtual shield that will detect something as small as a child’s hand.

“Since the opening of our German office last September, opportunities within the region have been increasing and we look forward to exhibiting at Essen and meeting our customers to discuss potential projects,” observed Masaya Kida, managing director of OPTEX EMEA. “The wider European team will be on the stand, including the sales teams from the Benelux region and Eastern Europe as well as the Nordics. Our EMEA product, technical and marketing managers will also be there.”

Kida added: “Our sensors are part of an overall security solution. We hope to show visitors how our different sensing technologies can be used for a variety of applications. Some sensors, such as our LiDAR products – the REDSCAN series, are highly versatile and reliable, even in the most challenging of outdoor conditions.”

As a business, OPTEX continues to go from strength to strength in Europe as its sensors become integrated with an increasing number of VMS platforms, including Genetec. OPTEX will also be exhibiting on Genetec’s Stand (5G30 in Hall 5).

Hanwha Techwin launches new Wisenet WAVE VMS brand

The new Wisenet WAVE video management software (VMS) from Hanwha Techwin “makes it almost effortless” to display up to 64 HD video streams. 

The company already offers an entry level free VMS called SSM, while for sophisticated Enterprise level VMS projects, the business integrates with technology partners such as Genetec and Milestone.

For its part, Wisenet WAVE has been launched to answer the needs of projects in the middle ground with an emphasis on simplified user experience.

HanwhaTechwinWisenetWAVE

Uncomplicated and easy to use

An intuitive ‘drag and drop’ tool makes it extremely easy for operators to set up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall, with customisable layouts and sizes.

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

A wide range of smart, keyword, calendar and time-slice search options facilitate rapid retrieval of recorded video.

Ultimate in flexibility

Wisenet WAVE offers a wide range of options to allow end users to choose how and where they wish to manage their video surveillance systems with minimal hardware requirements.

Desktop Wisenet WAVE is offered as software which can be installed on a user’s desktop running Windows, Linux or Apple/Mac. 24 to 64 live HD video streams can be managed on 32 and 64-bit operating systems.

Cloud A cloud-based service (which can be remotely accessed by an unlimited number of authorised users from anywhere in the world) offers a hardware free, cost saving method of taking advantage of all Wisenet WAVE functionality.

Server solutions Wisenet WAVE is available as a pre-loaded, out-of-the-box server or as software downloadable from the Hanwha Techwin website which enables operators to view up to 64 HD streams of live video. A supporting web-based application enables each Wisenet WAVE platform to be managed as a stand-alone system or as part of a larger, scalable video management solution. The application also provides an audit trail, real-time health monitoring and camera failover support, as well as reports on server health and storage status.

Mobile A mobile App affords the opportunity to remotely access the key functions of Wisenet WAVE from a smart device, in turn enabling ‘on-the-road’ users to view and respond to any incidents captured by Wisenet cameras.

While Wisenet WAVE is packed with features to make it simple and easy for users to achieve maximum advantage from their video surveillance systems, it’s likely to also be popular with system integrators looking to minimise their on-site time. With the benefit of an auto-discover feature, connected cameras and a wide range of third party IP network devices can be addressed and set up within a matter of minutes.
