Hikvision extends PoE capability for cameras in company’s IP model range

Hikvision is now offering up to 250 metres Power over Ethernet (PoE) for a number of cameras in its IP camera range.

The company has identified that many IP systems are designed where the cameras and NVRs are more than 100 metres apart, meaning that PoE can only be achieved through the use of additional switches and repeaters. This increases the overall cost of an installation.

With the introduction of greater PoE distances, Hikvision can now provide an even more cost-effective solution for larger installations with the added benefit of simplifying the system design and installation process.

Pom Chen, technical manager for Hikvision in the UK and Ireland, said: “With over 4,000 R&D employees, Hikvision is constantly looking at innovative ways in which to improve our solutions for security installers, system integrators and end users. The introduction of 250 metre Power over Ethernet is just one of many steps we’ll be taking in 2017.”

Veracity set to join partners at BETT 2017 as education sector demands reliable and long-term storage of HD video

Veracity – a leading provider of innovative and intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display – has just announced its inaugural attendance at the BETT Show.

The BETT Show takes place between 25-28 January at London’s ExCeL, and is the largest education technology event in Europe. By partnering with Kingsfield Computer Products Ltd on Stand G372 and Kent CCTV & Data Ltd on Stand E370, Veracity will show visitors from schools, colleges and the further education world that choosing to use higher definition cameras to record in much greater detail is now perfectly possible by dint of using the company’s award-winning surveillance storage product COLDSTORE.

Depending on the environment and the use of open platform cameras, it’s also possible to reduce the systems’ overall total cost of ownership by recording direct to COLDSTORE from the cameras, cutting out the additional hardware, VMS licence and energy costs of NVRs.

Alastair McLeod: Group CEO of Veracity

“No longer need you worry about reducing the recorded resolution from your cameras to conserve hard disk space,” explained Alastair McLeod, Group CEO of Veracity, to risk and security managers operational in the education sector, “or recording in high definition for short periods only. Security teams looking after retail centres are already realising the benefits of being able to record continuously in high definition, enabling them to retrospectively interrogate CCTV footage in greater detail than previously possible.”

McLeod added: “COLDSTORE’s recording design, which uses only two hard disk drives at a time in a mirrored overlapping pair sequence, extends the life of those disks considerably and reduces system energy consumption by around 90% when compared to similar-sized RAID systems.”

Veracity’s transmission products will be available for visitors to view. These include the industry-benchmark HIGHWIRE family of products, enabling the latest IP cameras to be installed over legacy coax networks without re-cabling and associated business disruption.

Also of interest will be the POINTSOURCE Wireless solution, which enables security installers to locally view IP cameras on a smart phone during installation

Honeywell expands Performance Series IP camera family

Honeywell has expanded its Performance Series IP camera family to include a new range of affordable, high-quality IP cameras that are easy to install, use and maintain.

The range introduces seven new IP cameras in dome, ball and bullet design, all of them perfect for commercial settings such as office buildings, retail stores and warehouses.

HoneywellProductGroup

Selected cameras from the new collection use Motorised Focal Zoom technology, which auto-focuses the lens after zoom operation. This allows the system installer to fine-tune camera focus and field of view off the ladder, making the install process easy and saving on labour costs.

Additionally, each camera captures crisp, clear images with high-resolution pixel detail, and offers correct object-aspect ratio to avoid on-screen distortion.

The cameras can be used immediately with Honeywell’s Performance Series embedded NVRs upon installation and are backed up by full customer support.

Hanwha Techwin and Veracity agree global marketing partnership

Hanwha Techwin (formerly Samsung Techwin), the manufacturer of video surveillance solutions, is introducing a low power, high capacity storage solution in partnership with Veracity, the IP transmission and surveillance storage specialist.

The combined solution, encompassing the latest generation of Hanwha Techwin’s HD cameras, SSM video management software and COLDSTORE storage offers “the most efficient direct to disk system available” and doesn’t require any NVRs.

The open platform capability of the WiseNetIII camera range is used to enable recording from the IP camera direct to the COLDSTORE disk array. Further, the use of LINKLOCK tamper-proof Ethernet-over-Coax technology, which is exclusively available from Hanwha Techwin, provides a “total barrier” to all unauthorised network access by fully blocking external IP connections to any cable or equipment that has either been tampered with or disconnected.

“The partnerships we have established with specialist technology providers such as Veracity are a key component of our ongoing major investment in R&D,” said Cheol Kyo Kim, president and CEO of the Hanwha Techwin Co Limited. “They’re a clear demonstration of our commitment to offer market leadership and provide end users with a total security solution.”

CheolKyoKimAlastairMcLeod

Kim continued: “When supported by COLDSTORE, our cameras and sophisticated, professional-level SSM VMS deliver a truly impressive and unique architecture known as TRINITY. It’s an excellent example of how, by working in harmony with our technology partners, Hanwha Techwin has become a one-stop shop for video surveillance solutions.”

Hanwha Techwin’s leader added: “This global marketing partnership will enable us to jointly raise awareness of a low power, high performance solution which gives installers and systems integrators a competitive edge. It also offers end users a highly cost-effective and complete video surveillance system that takes full advantage of our open platform HD camera technology and minimises total cost of ownership.”

The global marketing partnership was formalised at a signing ceremony held at Veracity’s UK head offices in Prestwick, Scotland on Wednesday 6 April.

Worldwide open platform opportunities

The solution takes advantage of the processing power of Hanwha Techwin’s WiseNetIII open platform cameras, which enables them to simultaneously run multiple specialist video analytics applications as well as Veracity’s TRINITY™ ‘direct-to-disk’ recording solution.

The solution provides end users with a robust and scalable system which doesn’t require a server or network recording device. Despite its simplified architecture, it’s able to support audio and metadata as well as video, while also offering innovative features such as camera-level fail-over, resilience to network interruptions and optional fully-redundant recording.

“I’m delighted that Hanwha Techwin has chosen to work closely with us to promote worldwide innovative video surveillance solutions that capitalise on groundbreaking technology,” said Alastair McLeod, Veracity’s Group CEO. “TRINITY delivers what we believe is the most power-efficient, reliable and complete surveillance recording solution available today.”

HanwhaWisetNet IIICameras

McLeod concluded: “We expect there to be increasing worldwide opportunities for Hanwha Techwin video surveillance solutions and products such as LINKLOCK and TRINITY to be specified for the same application. This has already happened with a number of large projects jointly won or in the pipeline across a wide range of market sectors, including city surveillance, housing, youth hostels, hospitals and petrol stations.”
