​Veracity uses Redvision’s SDK to enable comprehensive integration.

Redvision’s Full HD RV30™ rugged PTZ and dome camera range is now fully integrated with a VMS system which exploits Veracity’s COLDSTORE, the world’s only storage system designed specifically for digital video surveillance. 

Veracity, the specialist manufacturer of video surveillance transmission, storage and display products, used Redvision’s newly released software development kit (SDK) to enable the integration. The SDK’s logical format allowed Veracity developers to complete the integration in record time, even with the comprehensive level of control it enabled.

Kingsley Greenman, Director of Technical Projects at Veracity UK, explains, “The COLDSTORE-partnered VMS initially controlled Redvision’s RV30 IP rugged dome using the universal ONVIF protocol, which worked immediately with no additional development. However, Redvision’s Firmware and SDK package allowed us to take full advantage of more advanced functionality. For example, we implemented variable speed PTZ operation, which allows responsive operator control with minimal joy-stick latency. Wipers, IR and white light illumination can be turned on and off or scheduled and multiple pre-sets and tours are enabled, with absolute dome positioning. We were also able to use a full HD video stream for recording and lower resolution sub-streams for efficient control, display and transmission.

“Veracity and Redvision are both successful in local authority and public space applications. The integration has allowed us to pro-actively work together on combined projects in this sector.”

Both the 1080p and 720p models of the RV30 HD camera share the same SDK integration. The 1080p model, with IR and white light illumination switched on, is effective up to 120 and 100 metres respectively, with operators recognising people at up to 40 metres. The 720p model is effective up to a staggering 200 metres, with operators identifying people at 70 metres.

Video compression format options include H.264, MPEG4 or JPEG and both models have a 30x optical and 12x digital zoom.

Grundig monitors new range

Grundig Security introduces entry level LED backlight monitors.

Grundig Security’s new, entry level, flat-screen, LED backlight monitors have been designed specifically for 16/7 operation. 

They are ideal for use in professional NVR and DVR surveillance systems that are not continuously monitored.

The 19.5” and 21.5” entry-line models both come in a 16:9 format. They feature Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, providing clear and detailed images. They have an efficient, high quality, built-in power supply, designed for 16/7 operation. This keeps energy consumption and manufacturing costs down, making the new range highly competitive for installers.

Each monitor has VGA and HDMI ports optimized for video display and compatible with most leading DVRs and NVRs. LED backlight technology helps to increase contrast levels and the intensity of black levels, creating natural and accurate screen images. Both models have built-in speakers.

Grundig Security has also revised its successful 19”, 24/7 monitor, the GML-1931M. This contains similar features to its predecessor with the addition of high performance, low reflective, protective glass. The 19” monitor, designed for 24/7 operation, also features LED backlight technology, advanced image enhancement technology including a 3D comb filter and decoder, built-in de-interlacing and noise reduction. The monitor fits to standard VESA bracket sizes with HDMI, VGA, Audio, 2x BNC IN and 1x BNC loop video connection.

Pelco to exhibit VideoXpert™ VMS and Optera™ multi-sensor cameras at APS, Paris and Sicurezza, Milan.

Pelco will exhibit at APS Paris, Porte de Versailles, Pavillion 5.1, Aisle A, stand A45 from 29th September 2015 followed by Sicurezza, Fiera Milano, Hall 24, Stand T21 from 3rd November 2015.

Pelco will use the exhibitions to show-case VideoXpert™, the company’s new video management software (VMS) platform and Optera™, the multi-sensor, panoramic cameras, which provide seamless video images over 180°, 270° or 360° views.

VideoXpert™ VMS manages single and multi-site video security systems from a single workspace interface. Its ‘Unified User Interface’ (UUI) allows up to six monitors to function as a single workstation, fully configurable to suit the operator. However, despite VideoXpert’s ability to support limitless cameras and hundreds of operators, Pelco has ensured it remains simple and intuitive to use to minimise training requirements.

Plug-in architecture enables efficient system expansion through integrations with third-party systems, such as video analytics, ePOS, ANPR, access control and building management solutions, all controlled using VideoXpert’s intuitive UUI. Deployment is on distributed IT architecture, with built-in redundancy and modular, scalable, failover management to maximise system reliability.

Pelco will also be exhibiting its Optera™ Series, 12MP ‘panomersive’ cameras with panoramic viewing. Optera™ provides seamless video images over 180°, 270° or 360° fields of view, using four, 3MP cameras blended together to act as a single video stream. These ground-breaking cameras provide electronic pan, tilt and zoom functionality, allowing operators to zoom in on areas of interest to see levels of detail more comparable to a PTZ dome. This functionality is available on both live and recorded video. Client-side de-warping ensures Pelco’s VideoXpert™ and other third-party VMS solutions see the Optera™ series as a single camera for licensing and video management purposes. SureVision™ 2.0, 130dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), ensures high-contrast and demanding lighting conditions present little problem.

VPS 12 from Security Buying Group 2

The Video Processing Server range from SBG - now with Digifort or Aimetis VMS options.

The Video Processing Server (VPS) range, from Security Buying Group, is an industrial server solution, pre-loaded with Digifort or Aimetis VMS.

The VPS range competes with NVRs on price, even in the sub 16 channel surveillance market, and has significant, additional performance benefits. Each VPS comes with a 64bit Windows operating system (OS) installed on a solid-state drive (SSD), for maximum reliability and stability. They can be built with 4TB, 9TB and 12TB storage options and utilize 24/7/365 surveillance grade HDDs, with a 3 year warranty. The VPS 4 has a 1U chassis with 4TB and an Intel processor. The VPS 9 and 12 have a 2U chassis with 9 or 12TB and an i7 processor.

“The VPS 4 is designed for systems with up to 20, Full HD channels”, explained Paul Scott, technical manager at the Security Buying Group. “The VPS 9 and 12 are designed for systems with a maximum of 40 Full HD channels, and offer up to four additional analytics channels. Resolutions are up to 1080p on all channels at 25FPS, reaching a staggering 1000FPS on the 40 channel options.

“Whereas NVRs are typically supplied in 8 and 16 channel formats, the VPS can be loaded with the exact number of channels required for each application, capitalizing on the flexibility of VMS solutions. This makes the VPS range highly competitive because installers simply buy what they need. If the system grows, more licenses can be added, without reaching the 8 and 16 channel limitations of NVRs.”
