ONVIF focuses on common specifications for smart solutions at SiX 2019

ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, is going to be represented at the inaugural SiX (a new industry event for the security sector focused on growing security installation businesses and recognising smarter approaches towards security itself). Organised by Pro-Activ Publications (the publisher of PSI, Benchmark, Risk Xtra and The Paper), the event will be held on 5-6 November at EventCity in Manchester.

In a seminar entitled ‘The Importance of Common Specifications for Smart Solutions’, Per Björkdahl (chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee) will discuss how ONVIF specifications provide a common interface for video and access control products, allowing hardware from different manufacturers to work together. This results in simplified and streamlined integrations tailored to individual end user needs. This session will be part of the ‘Benchmark: Creating Smart Solutions’ learning track where each seminar is chaired by Brian Sims BA (Hons) Hon FSyI, Editor of Risk Xtra and The Paper.

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity of sharing with installers and integrators the detail of how ONVIF could be the key to them maximising the impact of the latest innovations in today’s solutions,” said Björkdahl. “At the end of the day, the security industry is working to make people safe in the most efficient way possible. ONVIF provides the groundwork to do exactly this by enabling security professionals to create Best of Breed solutions for end users, regardless of the manufacturer.”

SiX is a security event created specifically with the needs of system integrators and security installers in mind. The event provides attendees with access to forward-thinking manufacturers who can support them through the entire integration process: designing, specifying and implementing systems and solutions that deliver value for end users.
 
Founded in 2008, ONVIF is driving interoperability for IP-based physical security products. The organisation has a global member base of established camera, video management system and access control companies and more than 13,000 Profile-conformant products.

IDIS Global Partners Summit highlights developments in analytics and end-to-end solutions for strategic markets

The latest advances in video analytics – including improved classification, accuracy and speed – were unveiled at a Global Partners Summit of international security and video surveillance professionals hosted by IDIS in Seoul, South Korea.

The three-day event, attended by senior executives from leading security distributors from 23 countries, focused on how IDIS is responding to market trends and needs, developing end-to-end solutions (including specialist technologies for a range of vertical markets) and pushing forward with improvements to the IDIS Deep Learning Engine, the technology which powers the company’s ‘AI in the Box’ and IDIS Deep Learning Analytics solutions for end users.

Earlier this year, IDLA Version 3.0 was introduced as a service module for up to 80 channels within the IDIS Solution Suite VMS and it set new performance benchmarks by achieving an accuracy of 97%-98% while dramatically reducing false alarms. Responding to customer demand for easier, more affordable analytics for smaller applications, IDIS also launched its aforementioned DV-2116 ‘AI in the Box’ solution.

Delegates learned of future enhancements in meta-data searching by class, colour and number, plus the ability to search a specific area of interest. People counting, fall detection and the ability to search by the direction of an object’s movement were also previewed and delegates received advanced notice of a new range of AI-ready 5 MP cameras, featuring deep learning on-the-edge analytics, due for release next year.

Technology roadmap for 2020

The Global Partners Summit also previewed IDIS’ ambitious video product and technology roadmap for 2020, further building out the company’s end-to-end solutions for core vertical market sectors.

Innovations in recording and camera technology, and the growing importance of cyber security, extended warranties and the advantages of delivering lower total cost of ownership and lower total cost to serve for systems integrators and installers were among key topics discussed at the event.

IDIS works closely with its partners and hosts the annual Global Partners Summit as an opportunity to exchange market insights and steer its strategies for product development, technical support and marketing.

Partners shared Best Practice implementations and related Case Studies in core vertical markets including retail, education, logistics and distribution and hotels.

Awards for Best Practice

Joon Jun, president of the IDIS Global Business Division, recognised outstanding project implementations and presented special awards for Best Practice to Alarm Automatika from Croatia and BTCO of Chile.

This collaborative approach, focusing on long-term partnerships, is a key element in the company’s success. It’s a customer-focused model that has seen IDIS grow continuously since 1997 to become Korea’s largest in-country video surveillance manufacturer, with regional operations now expanding across 50-plus countries.

Concluding the Global Partners Summit, special partner awards were presented by YD Kim, CEO of IDIS, recognising outstanding collaboration and sales growth over the last year. These were given to Alarm Automatica of Croatia, CCTV Center from Spain, EPCOM of Mexico, JES CQTEC of Thailand and Japan’s Secure Inc.
