Airports seeing major shift of IP video surveillance; three trends that are piloting the change
Airports have broken the analog barrier. No longer are airport directors and security executives arguing the merits of analog vs. IP. Here is what airport leaders have been saying and, more importantly, doing.
IP camera-based system is leading the industry
Even though the product release of HD-CCTV is based on HD-SDI transmission technology, it has been rapidly increasing since the beginning of 2012. There has not been enough marketing about HDCCTV and its technology and products, so only the future will tell the tale.
People find new ways to integrate software with other solutions
Video surveillance software can help to count people traffic, register scratches on cars or show which customers need help in the store. End users find new, clever and creative ways to use open-platform software and integrate it with other solutions.
It all comes down to managing efficiently and effectively
The effectiveness of access control really comes down to local decisions made at each door. However, enterprise systems are deployed and managed on a global scale, which presents a challenge of how to manage all those local access control decisions efficiently and effectively.
Using the best security equipment available
Selecting an enterprise security system is a little bit like buying a car. When buying a car, you choose the make and model of the vehicle, you choose tires made by a well-known manufacturer and recommended for the vehicle, and an audio system probably by a manufacturer outside the automotive industry. This way, you can get the best-of-breed approach.
Prices are falling, capabilities increase with technology
As prices fall and capabilities increase, new applications are emerging that leverage the advantages offered by thermal technology for securing outdoor assets. The result is a market tipping point for thermal cameras and an opportunity to use the best detection technology available for costs that meet or beat less-effective approaches.
Large building chooses security systems and elevator controls that work together
Building owners have found that integrating an elevator destination control system with its security management system enhances these benefits for tenants because they can use their credential for both access control and elevator access, but careful planning is a must to ensure cost effectiveness.
PoE boosts efficiency while cutting costs
PoE is redefining how security professionals design and deploy systems. Rather than using the standard type of power supplies, integrators are increasingly employing PoE network switches or incorporating PoE midspan devices that inject power into an Ethernet cable after it leaves the switch and before it reaches the network device.
Internet links everything from commerce to courting
System design and equipment choices designed to protect key assets have never been more diverse. IP-based systems offer many advantages for capturing and transmitting high-quality HD images via the Internet or a LAN connection for remote monitoring.
As biometrics authentication technology proliferates, it leaves fingerprints on many sectors of society
Today’s biometrics systems are moving identity authentication toward real time, accurate and secure, individual ID based on unique biometric characteristics, including iris patterns, fingerprint minutiae, facial structure or voice.
Administrator has capability to monitor, analyze and troubleshoot
RMON provides its administrator the capability to monitor, analyze and troubleshoot a multitude of security threats from a distance. Keywords: from a distance— what’s the point of security if you have to put yourself in harm’s way?
One of the world’s busiest train stations is fully protected
Using a combination of fiber optic and copper wire for networking, UFP went with Class A, Style 7 circuitry, which provided a high level of survivability.
Taking a layered approach to security in your building
The PEC works by singling out any pedestrians attempting access without proper credentials.
Project calls for high-definition surveillance on the edge
On June 1, 2012, the California Department of Parks and Recreation (CDPR), in connection with various partner agencies, began a six-month construction project to restore wetland function within Malibu Lagoon State Park.
