Videotec Announces ULISSE EVO With The SONY FCB-EV7520 Camera To Enhance Airport Video Surveillance
Videotec Announces ULISSE EVO With The SONY FCB-EV7520 Camera To Enhance Airport Video Surveillance

Videotec announces that the new ULISSE EVO PTZ range will integrate the high-sensitivity SONY FCB-EV7520 camera. This camera will provide a new level of high performance and exceptional image quality for the external surveillance of airports, critical infrastructures, and traffic. The new ULISSE EVO with the SONY FCB-EV7520 camera has a 30x optical zoom and a 1/2.8” Exmor RTM CMOS sensor with Full HD 1080/60p resolution that produces the highest image quality, even when surveilling moving objects or in poor lighting conditions. Powerful image stabilization algorithm With ULISSE EVO and the SONY camera, you can set up to 24 dynamic privacy zone masks The powerful image stabilization algorithm means even the smallest camera vibrations are detected and any blur in the footage is dynamically corrected. This results in a sharp image of the scene being surveilled. This is useful for traffic monitoring applications where the camera could be buffeted by wind or shaken by mechanical vibrations, especially if it installed on an unstable structure such as a bridge or pole. With ULISSE EVO and the SONY camera, you can set up to 24 dynamic privacy zone masks. These masks change size and shape based on the pan/tilt/zoom position so objects that shouldn’t be seen remain hidden. The advanced SONY technology brings the functions of Wide Dynamic Range and High Light Compensation that allow optimal management of contrasting light and dark conditions. Ensuring continuous monitoring The camera’s high sensitivity means you get color video with a minimum illumination of just 0.0013lx (0.0008lx in black and white). This guarantees surveillance coverage even when lighting at the scene is very poor. The LED illuminator integrated into the PTZ, which is available as an accessory, ensures continuous monitoring 24 hours a day. This PTZ camera provides 3 Full HD streams with H.264/Avc digital compression The de-fog function provides a clear view even with fog or haze. When this function is activated, the camera will detect how hazy it is and compensates accordingly in the image. This PTZ camera provides 3 Full HD streams with H.264/Avc digital compression. It can be connected to an Ethernet network easily and can send video streams to digital monitors and storage systems. It complies with ONVIF, Profile S and Profile Q protocols. Quick-Fit connectors for Ethernet/PoE The ULISSE EVO with SONY camera can be 24Vac/24Vdc or 90W PoE powered, depending on installation requirements. It can even be mounted upside down, in the typical speed domes position. The supports can be supplied with quick-fit connectors for Ethernet/PoE, power supply and I/O. This means the unit can be replaced quickly and easily in case of on-site intervention. The wiper is supplied as standard, for optimum cleaning of the front glass. ULISSE EVO operates at maximum efficiency between -40°C and +65°C. It is IK10, IP66/IP67/IP68, NEMA Type 4X and Type 6P protected and is wind-resistant up to 230 km/h. This ensures maximum protection against dust and bad weather, strong impacts or gusts of wind, and acts of vandalism.

Qumulex Seeks To Simplify The Integrator Community’s Transition To The Cloud
Qumulex Seeks To Simplify The Integrator Community’s Transition To The Cloud

Qumulex is a new startup with a mission to provide physical security integrators a transition path to embrace the technology of the cloud and a subscription-based business model. Qumulex’s products seek to provide capabilities to embrace the cloud without an integrator having to turn their back completely on the ‘transactional revenue’ of installing new systems. As the transition happens, Qumulex offers a product line that supports any mix of systems from on-premises to the cloud. The flexible deployment model – enabling a cloud installation, an on-premise installation or any combination – is one of the ways Qumulex seeks to differentiate itself in the market. Installing fully on-Premise system The Qumulex cloud-based platform uses a gateway device located on-premises to which local cameras are connected The system is designed so that an integrator can install a fully on-premise system and then later ‘flip a switch’ and transition to a cloud model, says Tom Buckley, VP Sales and Marketing. The Qumulex initial 1.0 system launch is currently entering its final beta test. Full commercial availability is expected in the first quarter of 2020, which the company will highlight in a bigger 20x20 booth at ISC West next year. The Qumulex cloud-based platform uses a gateway device located on-premises to which local cameras are connected. Ensuring cybersecurity, the gateway provides a ‘firewall’ of sorts to avoid any cybersecurity threat from entering an enterprise through a vulnerable IP camera. The system is designed to be ‘cloud-agnostic’ and to work with any public or private cloud, using Docker software and ‘containers,’ a standard unit of software that packages code and all its dependencies so an application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another. At launch, the Qumulex system will use the Google cloud. Greater situational awareness The open platform approach will enable users to assemble best-of-breed solutions Another point of differentiation for the new platform is a unified access control and video surveillance environment – both are part of the same program. Access control can drive video events and vice versa for greater situational awareness. A unified system avoids having to integrate separate systems. A big emphasis for Qumulex is ease of use. They have designed the user interface to be as simple and intuitive as possible, using consumer-oriented systems such as Nest and the Ring Doorbell as a model of simplicity. Finally, the open platform approach will enable users to assemble best-of-breed solutions. Keeping it simple, the system offers native integration with only the major camera manufacturers that represent most of the market: Axis, Hanwha, Arecont, Panasonic, Vivotek and Sony. Longer-Term storage Other cameras can be included using the ONVIF interface. On the access control side, the system will initially be compatible with Axis door controllers, Allegion wireless door locks and ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless door locks. Future versions of the software will seek to integrate HID Edge and Vertx and eventually Mercury panels. The gateway device may incorporate only a solid-state drive (SSD) for buffering Qumulex is taking a ‘mobile-first’ approach. The software is designed as a ‘progressive web app,’ which means is it is adaptable to – and fully functioning in – any smart phone, mobile device, laptop, or on a desktop computer with multiple monitors. The gateway device may incorporate only a solid-state drive (SSD) for buffering, or as many hard drives as the customer wants for storage. Short-term storage is available in the cloud, but local hard drives may be used for longer-term storage which can get expensive given the monthly fees of cloud storage. Using third-Party server To manage the variety of scenarios, Qumulex will offer a line of gateways and recorders, or a customer can use a third-party server along with Qumulex, which is an open system. Qumulex will use a manufacturer’s representative sales model and has already signed up 11 rep firms covering the United States (the initial target of the launch). The company has been spreading the word among integrators, too, first at the ISC West show last spring, when 98 integrators saw demonstrations of the system at a suite in the Palazzo. Another 48 integrators saw the system at ESX in Indianapolis in June. At the recent GSX show in Chicago, Qumulex had a booth on the show floor, where they scanned 450 badges that yielded 176 unique integrators. Entering the physical security market Qumulex just closed a second round of funding, which does not include any ‘institutional’ money Buckley estimates there are around 10,000 total security integrators in the United States that sell products similar to theirs at their price point. They are working to build their database to reach out to those integrators. (Exacq had more than 4,500 dealer/integrators before it was sold to Tyco/Johnson Controls.) Qumulex is the third company to enter the physical security market by the same team that launched two other successful startups in the last 20 years: Exacq Technologies (sold to Tyco in 2013) and Integral Technologies (sold to Andover Controls in 2000). Both previous companies were built around a need to help the integrator community transition to newer technologies. Qumulex just closed a second round of funding, which does not include any ‘institutional’ money. The first round of investment involved only the founders, and the second round added some ‘angel’ investors to the mix. The funding allows more flexibility and control over the company’s timeline and the evolution of the product’s feature set, free of outside mandates, says Buckley.
