Thermal camera hotspot and zones

Security Buying Group uses ‘hot-spot’ detection and temperature deviation to help prevent fires.

The Security Buying Group’s new range of thermal cameras uses ‘hot-spot’ detection and ‘scene temperature deviation’ to trigger alarms within its Digifort VMS platform.

The system is already actively used in fire prevention, early fire detection and life safety applications and has many other uses.

“The ‘hot-spot’ alert detects any point, in up to five zones in the camera’s field of view, that exceeds a defined temperature,” explained Paul Scott, technical director of the Security Buying Group. “The hottest point in each zone is marked with a cross, which allows users to see the exact reason for an alarm or alert condition. The temperature reading at each cross, and its deviation from the ambient temperature level of each zone, is displayed in the video image. The hottest of the ‘hot-spots’ in the camera’s view is highlighted with a larger ‘crosshair’ and tracked in close to real time.

“The ‘Scene temperature deviation’ feature allows users to set a safe working temperature range in each zone or for the entire scene. An alert will be triggered if a zone becomes too hot or cold. For example, if the temperature threshold of a zone is programmed at 50°C, any part of that zone exceeding 50°C will trigger an alert or raise an alarm.”

All communications between the camera and VMS are via Ethernet, with alarm actions configured within the VMS. No external interfaces or video analytics licenses are required for its operation, making it a cost-effective solution.

The SBG thermal cameras’ resolution is 420x315 pixels and they are available with 8, 15, 25, 35 and 50mm lens options.

Speed Analytic

‘Object speed’ comes as standard in Digifort’s unique analytics portfolio.

The Digifort open platform VMS includes ‘object speed’ as standard within its video analytics suite.

The speed of vehicles and people are measured; the readings are then presented as part of the object analytics boxes, on screen. People counting, loitering, left and removed object, tampering, direction, stationary object, face detection and virtual barriers are also included in Digifort’s standard, analytics package.

“Object speed is highly effective data for many applications,” explains Francois Levy, Digifort Business Development Director for EMEA. “Detecting vehicles speeding is an obvious application, but identifying when people are suspiciously running or stationery, instead of walking, or when a production line stops moving, are other typical examples of how the speed analytics can be used.”

The more precise the calibration, using easily configurable parameters such as camera angle, height and distance from target, the more accurate the speed readings will be.

“Digifort’s video analytics configuration is particularly simple and logical to use. Each analytics rule is set up with its corresponding actions. Not only does this simplify initial setup, but it also simplifies editing and fine tuning later. Clicking on an existing analytics box, on-screen, will describe its function and takes the user to its setup and action menu for editing.”

Speed triggers can include people or vehicles travelling above or below a designated limit; outside a specific acceptable band; or reaching a particular speed level. Once triggered, high-quality video evidence is recorded and operators or key-holders alerted. Actions can include notification by email, text or SMS with video clips. An unlimited number of secure client PCs, tablets and smartphones can access and view the system.

Redvision X SERIES Dual Light

Redvision’s IP-based X-SERIES™ rugged dome now comes in 1080p and 720p resolutions.

Redvision’s RVX-IP30™, the IP version of its successful X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ and dome camera range, is now available in 1080p (Full HD) and 720p (HD) resolution models. Both models have three, simultaneous, real-time video streams.

The primary stream is for recording and is either 1080p or 720p, depending on model, with sub-streams of 720p, D1, VGA and QVGA for lower band-width recording, display and transmission. Video compression format options include H.264, MPEG4 or JPEG and both models have a 30x optical and 12x digital zoom.

The RVX-IP30-1080 HD model delivers Full HD, 1920x1080p resolution video, with a sensitivity of 0.35Lux in day/night mode reducing to 0.05Lux with IR illumination switched on. The RVX-IP30-720 HD has 1280x720p resolution, but with 0.25Lux is more sensitive in low-light.

“As the number of megapixels in a camera increases, its low light sensitivity decreases,” explained Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision. “Megapixel sensors have dead space between pixels which is not light sensitive. The proportion of dead space increases in higher megapixel models, compromising sensitivity. Our tests found that 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. By comparison, the 720p model is effective up to a staggering 200 metres, with operators identifying people at 70 metres. 1.3MP is also specified in many Local Authority applications, which is our biggest single market.

“We introduced both models because some applications require low-light performance as a priority, so would use the 720p. Other applications need Full HD video as a priority, so would use the 1080p model.”

Latency in joy stick operation has been virtually eliminated with the RVX-IP30™, making operator control highly responsive. Full ONVIF integration ensures seamless, network operation with most leading manufacturers control equipment and VMS solutions and the list of SDK integrations includes Milestone, Exaq, Mirasys, Wavestore, Synetics, Avigiolon and many more.
