SAMSUNG Techwin has released its latest 5MP camera series, the SNO-8081R bullet and SNV-8081R vandal dome. Both cameras are equipped with 1/1.8-inch 6MP CMOS sensors, and 3.6-9.4mm motorized varifocal lens with auto-focus. 

In backlit applications, 120dB WDR allows the camera to perform exceptionally well in a challenging environment, while built-in IR allows images in complete darkness.

Features such as LDC (Lens Distortion Correction) and Hallway view, simply add value to the users. Nevertheless, it is not only the performance of the camera which makes it special. The cameras are fully compatible with the H.265/H.264 technology, supporting current and future compression protocols.♦

Sony Releases STARVIS Back-Illuminated CMOS CCTV Sensor

Better low light performance, better IR performance
Better low light performance, better IR performance

Sony’s STARVIS sensor technology increases the sensitivity of back-illuminated CMOS image sensors for security cameras. 

STARVIS increases the light utilization efficiency over a wide range of wavelengths, enhancing sensitivity not only in the visible light region but also the near infrared light region that is often used by security cameras. As a result, STARVIS achieves a sensitivity of 2,000 mV or more per 1μ㎡ pixel size, and realizes 2 or more times the sensitivity of the existing CCD image sensor (EXview HAD CCD II).

Video Analytics Market Predicted to Grow at 20.9 Per Cent

Video Analytics set to grow
Video Analytics set to grow

Marketsandmarkets valued the global market at $US1.53 billion in 2015 and predicts serious growth over the next 5 years.

“We estimate that in 2020 the total video analytics market size, globally, would be $3.9 billion,” Marketsandmarkets research analyst Dheeraj Katkar told SSN. 

Marketsandmarkets examined 2 types of video analytics; edge-based, which has analytics built into the camera, and server-based; where video is uploaded to a server.

“The most common approach is a hybrid approach, in which server-based as well as edge-based combinations are being used in different scenarios,” Katkar said. 

According to Katkar, “Cloud-based subscription services leverage analytics to extract information from videos and images is a key growth area in the market.”

Dallmeier DF5200HD DN Camera Review

Dallmeier DF5200HD DN
Dallmeier DF5200HD DN

Dallmeier’s DF5200HD DN is a full body 2MP IP camera featuring a 1/1.9-inch CMOS sensor and up to 120ips frame rate. This PoE camera has a motorised 4.5-10mm varifocal lens, and a claimed minimum scene illumination number of 0.002 lux.  

DALLMEIER makes nice cameras and this DF5200HD-DN, distributed locally by C.R. Kennedy, is no exception to the rule. It’s a full body camera with an alloy housing that doubles as a heat sink. It’s compact – measurements are 71mm x 66mm x 176mm and the camera weighs in at just 300 grams. The DF5200HD-DN is part of a family which includes IR bullet and dome variations, and the findings of this test are likely to apply in good measure to those cameras as well.

DVTEL Quasar CB-6204 Camera Review

DVTEL Quasar CB-6204
DVTEL Quasar CB-6204

Quasar CB-6204 from DVTEL’s 1440P Quad HD Bullet series, distributed locally by QSS, uses new innovations, including DVTEL’s Quad HD resolution and multi-shutter WDR to push the boundaries of resolution and backlight performance. 

DVTEL’S CB-6204 Series Quasar 1440P Quad IR HD bullet camera is another sweet release from the NJ-based company. The last DVTEL camera we tested was the 4K bullet and we loved it, especially during the day, when we thought it offered the best resolution of any camera we’d seen in street applications.

NSW Trains Plans CCTV and CHIPs

XPT by Magnus Manske
XPT by Magnus Manske

NSW Trains has released a tender for the rollout of a decentralised CCTV and Customer Help and Information Point (CHIP) capability to regional railway station and coach stop locations with the first phase deploying to 22 regional NSW locations. 

NSW Trains currently utilises the Sydney Trains' CCTV and Help Point Systems within the Sydney Trains rail network area, which includes locations north to Hamilton and throughout the Hunter, South to Nowra, South West to Goulburn and West to Lithgow. But there is no CCTV at any regional NSW Trains beyond the Sydney Trains rail network area with the exception of Coffs Harbour Station.

Hikvision Darkeye SLA Lens Review

Hikvision Darkeye SLA Lens Review
Hikvision Darkeye SLA Lens Review

We  tested Hikvision Darkfighter in SEN a while back but post-SecTech Roadshow, I jumped at the chance to re-test the camera with Hikvision’s new Darkeye SLA lens.

WHEN you’re a lens junkie, a piece of glass like Hikvision’s Darkeye represents something mysterious and wonderful. At once it’s a lens capable of snaring the best possible performance from the camera wearing it and the answer to a prayer that lens quality will stop its slide to the abyssal plains of low cost. When it comes to lenses, you get what you pay for. In the case of Darkeye, you pay for what you get – it’s $A810 list, so this is an application-specific lens.

Avoiding The Stumbling Blocks of HD Video Installation

Installing HD video surveillance
Installing HD video surveillance

If you can identify the biggest stumbling blocks for installers trying to make sense of HD IP video surveillance then it’s easier to work towards planning for them or expanding your skill set, making installations faster and solutions more effective.

TRYING to commission HD IP cameras can be challenging but it’s even more challenging when you’re constrained by bandwith issues, required to position cameras in less than ideal locations, or forced by a low budget to employ a camera that might not be up to the job. 

But what are the key stumbling blocks? There are so many factors to consider including managing storage, handling bit rate over public WANs, tweaking camera performance parameters for 24-hour operation, wrangling massive bandwidth demands in very busy scenes, the challenge of installing cameras to capture face recognition, as well as situational awareness.
