eneo IP Network Cameras(15)
A disadvantage of conventional surveillance cameras is that they capture only a relatively small field of view. And only a few of them generally support a range of more than 90 degrees. If, though, the requirement is to see everything, in particular the area to the left, right and behind the camera, then further cameras are needed. But this can quickly become expensive and complicated. The practical technical solution that is also less of a financial strain is a panoramic camera, because it delivers the 360 degree all-round view as standard, and it is the optimum choice when you need a continuous widescreen panoramic or complete access control. Not all panoramic cameras are the same There are basically three different types of panoramic camera: fisheye, polymorphic and segmented cameras. The last two unquestionably have their strengths and rights to exist, but they are considered to be on the way out and unsightly (polymorphic) or not so widespread (segmented) and relatively expensive (both). The most widespread “panoramic” is the one with a fisheye lens. This ultra-wide-angle lens is installed in a dome housing so that its external picture alone is one of overall style. A single lens and image converter show the entire 360 degree scene in an image with native curvature, the typical fisheye look. All-round good: PXD-5360F01IR The rule particularly for panoramics is: the larger the area under surveillance, the lower the pixel density. This makes high resolution cameras obligatory and is precisely where the new PXD-5360F01IR eneo fisheye camera shines: fitted with a 5 megapixel image sensor it delivers a maximum resolution of an impressive 2592 x 1944 pixels. Whoever is satisfied with “simply” Full HD with 4080p experiences the 360 degree imagery at up to 30 fps – therefore, or therefore the best, conditions for not only good identification of details close to and below the camera, but also those somewhat further away or at the image edges. But the new 360°-PXD can do even more: the PoE-capable IP camera has a switchable IR cut filter making it a true day & night camera. The integral infrared illumination is exhibited by 6 LEDs that can also be switched off. Digital Wide Dynamic Range and 3DNR are further image-improving features. The maintenance-free EPTZ, as it does without moving parts, allows digital continuous pan, tilt and zoom. Finally, the 360° also sets the right tone to make it completely “round”: the camera has a built-in microphone and speaker.Add to Compare
The new autofocus models in the Candid and Callisto Series, from eneo, deliver clear and fully detailed imagery of moving objects with a resolution of 2 megapixels. They automatically calculate the distance between the lens and object, and continuously regulate the picture sharpness so that the cameras follow movement delivering constantly sharp imagery. This makes them very interesting for applications where it is important to stay “on the man”, e.g. for surveillance in entrance areas or surveillance of persons in buildings. Practical comfort upgrade A further advantage: IP and HDcctv cameras with autofocus are easier to install. Even professionals find that fine adjustment of the lens is not without its problems. The network latency effect means imagery is displayed on the monitor with a time delay, which is why adaption of the focus to the focal length is often very similar to searching for a radio station in a moving car. First models ready for shipping This is where the autofocus of the new models proves to be a real upgrade: whilst the focal length required for the area under surveillance can easily be set by the 3x optical zoom (3-9 mm) at the press of a button or in browser, the autofocus adjusts the plane of focus. Conclusion: in combination with the convenience features typical for Candid of Plug & Play, One Screw Fix and the optionally available Easy Installation Box, autofocus makes the installer’s work very much easier for these bullet cameras. And installation of the new Callisto domes is also far more convenient. The first four Candids with HD 1080p are now ready for shipping: Candid Small for indoors, Candid Medium for outdoors, in IP as well as HDcctv versions. The domes in the Callisto Series are also available with IP or HDcctv technology. In additional to numerous intelligent features, the PXD-2080Z03 (IP) supports the following resolutions: 1920x1080 (16:9), 1280x720 (16:9), 640x352 (4:3), 320x176 (16:9), 160x96 (16:9). The HDD-2080Z03IR (HDcctv) enables resolutions of 1920x1080 (16:9) and 1280x720 (16:9)Add to Compare

In addition to IP cameras and recorders the F Series offers four different network dome models: two fixed domes with full day/night functionality and two extremely compact mini-domes for discrete surveillance solutions. All four models are ONVIF compatible.The FXD-1001/IR and FXD-1002/IR IP Fixed Domes are day/night models with a switchable infrared cut filter and integrated infrared illumination. The FXD-1001/IR features a resolution of 1280x960 pixels. At this resolution a frame rate of 12.5 frames per second is achieved and 25 frames per second at 1280x720 pixels. The FXD-1002/IR has a 2-megaixel resolution of 1600x1200 pixels which achieves a frame rate of 12.5 frames per second (25 frames per second at HD 720p). Both models come with one alarm input and output and one audio input and output.With their dimensions of 100x97.5x46.5 mm the FLD-1101 and FXD-1102 mini-domes allow nearly invisible ceiling installation, which predestines them for discrete surveillance solutions such as in buses and trains (certified for public transport). The FLD-1101 with a VGA resolution of 640x480 pixels displays imagery in real time at a rate of 25 frames per second. Its light sensitivity is 0.4 Lux (at F1.2 colour). The FXD-1102 has a 2-megapixel resolution of 1600x1200 pixels and a rate of 12.5 frames per second at full resolution and 25 frames per second at 1280x720 pixels (HD 720p). The light sensitivity is 0.5 Lux (at F1.2 colour).The features include dual video streams, H.264 compression, Power over Ethernet and integrated motion detector. The IP fixed domes as well as the IP mini-domes have effective protection against vandalism, vibration and shock: with IK10 the domes have the highest protection classification on the IK shock resistance scale and can resist shocks up to 20 joules without any problems. Operation at sites with a risk of manipulation or deliberate damage is therefore problem-free. This of course also applies for outside areas as the domes are protected compliant with IP66 and therefore have effective weather protection. Installation could not be simpler as the dome 3-axes adjustment feature accurately brings them into the required position.Add to Compare

New in the eneo GL Series is the vandal resistant 1/3" Fix Dome GLD 1501/IR for interior network installations. Thanks to its analog video input it can also easily be installed in an analog video surveillance system - an advantage when the changeover to an IP-based system still has to happen.In addition to a resolution of 704 x 576 pixels, the GLD-1501/IR offers a choice of M-JPEG and MPEG-4 video compression and a maximum transmission rate of 25 fps. Its integrated IR illumination with a range of approximately 15m along with the switchable IR cut filter also make the dome the outstanding choice for 24-hour surveillance. The integral vari lens with a focal lens of 3.3-12mm combined with 3-axis adjustment ensures simple installation and also precision lens alignment over the area under surveillance.The USB port is extremely practical: use it to connect the dome to a PC and set the IP address without any wasted time, make further configuration settings or update firmware. The dome also has a slot for SD cards which makes local recordings possible for several days and without additional equipment. Thanks to Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) no further cables are required for the power supply at installation. The shipping package of all GL Series products contains the GL-Manager management software for management, control and recording for up to 16 video sources.

eneo has redefined efficiency with its new PXD-2018PTZ1080 PTZ IP Dome: wherever several conventional cameras would be required for gapless surveillance over large areas, now only one of these new and unobtrusive PTZ IP Domes with Sony sensor technology is enough. The PXD-2018PTZ1080 has Sony Progressive Scan CMOS, its 18x autofocus lens has a 4.7–84.6 mm focal length and it is equipped with a 12x zoom. Video images are transmitted in real time and Full HD (1920x1080 pixels), H.264 and MJPEG compression are supported. Digital noise suppression (2D-DNR), WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) as well as Sens-up ensure outstanding picture quality. Due to its rotary range of 360°, the pan/tilt camera designed for day and night use has an all-round overview. The PXD-2018PTZ1080 permits user programming of eight guard tours, but manual control is of course possible at any time. And also in other respects its numerous functions make the PTZ dome the state-of-the-art in video surveillance technology: its features include 256 presets, privacy zone masking (16 zone masking), motion detection (10 configurable zones), bidirectional audio support and remote internet access. In addition, the PXD-2018PTZ1080 has ONVIF compatibility and internal storage (Micro SD card). With its rugged housing, the vandalism-resistant (IP66) dome is recommended for outdoor use in an operational temperature range of -40°C to 50°C.Add to Compare

Video surveillance across the world is growing exponentially and its major application is in both public safety and law enforcement. Traditionally, it has been fixed surveillance where cameras provide live streams from fixed cameras situated in what is considered strategic locations. But they are limited in what they can see given by their very definition of being “fixed”. The future of video surveillance includes the deployment of more mobile video surveillance with the benefits it offers. Instead of fixed cameras, this is the ability to live stream from mobile devices on the move such as body-worn cams, drones, motorbikes, cars, helicopters and in some cases, even dogs!Sending drones into the air, for example for missing people or rescue missions, is much more cost-effective than deploying helicopters Advantages Of Mobile Surveillance The advantage of mobile surveillance is that the camera can go to where the action is, rather than relying on the action going to where the camera is. Also, sending drones into the air, for example for missing people or rescue missions, is much more cost-effective than deploying helicopters. The ability to live stream video from cars and helicopters in high-speed pursuits can be used to take some of the operational issues from the first responders on the ground and share that “life and death” responsibility with the operational team leaders back in the command center. This allows the first responders in the pursuit vehicle to focus on minimizing risk while staying in close proximity of the fleeing vehicle, with direction from a higher authority who can see for themselves in real time the issues that are being experienced, and direct accordingly. In addition to showing video live stream from a pursuit car or motorcycle, by using inbuilt GPS tracking, the video can be displayed on a map in real time, allowing a command chief to better utilize additional resource and where to deploy them, through the use of displaying mapping information with real time video feed. It allows police chiefs to make better informed decisions in highly-charged environments. The 4G phone network can now be used with compressed video to live stream cost effectively Application in emergency situations The same is true of first responders in many different emergency situations. Mobile surveillance opens up a new area of efficiencies that previously was impossible to achieve. For example, special operations can wear action body-worn cameras when doing raids, fire departments can live stream from emergency situations with both thermal and daylight cameras, and paramedics can send video streams back to hospitals allowing doctors to remotely diagnose and prepare themselves for when patients arrive at the hospital. How can special operations and emergency first responders live stream video from a mobile camera with the issues of weight, reliability and picture-quality being considered? H265 Mobile Video Compression Law enforcement insists on secure transmissions, and it is possible to encrypt video to the highest level of security available in the public domain The 4G phone network can now be used with compressed video to live stream cost effectively. The issue of course is that 4G is not always reliable. Soliton Systems has mitigated this risk of low mobile quality in certain areas, by building an H265 mobile video compression device that can use multiple SIM cards from different cellular providers simultaneously. H265 is the latest compression technique for video, that is 50% more effective than conventional H264, and coupling this with using multiple “bonded” SIM cards provides a highly reliable connection for live-streaming high-quality HD video. The 400-gram device with an internal battery can be connected to a small action cam, and can live-stream simultaneously over at least three different cellular providers, back to a command center. Latency is typically less than a second, and new advance improvements are looking to reduce that latency further. Encrypted Video Transmission What about security? Law enforcement insists on secure transmissions, and it is possible to encrypt video to the highest level of security available in the public domain, i.e. AES256.What about integration into existing video infrastructure at the command center? It is not untypical for a police force to have an existing video management system (VMS) at their command center such as Milestone System’s Xprotect. The Soliton range of products are ONVIF-compliant, a standard used by video surveillance cameras for interoperability, allowing cameras and video devices that are ONVIF-compliant to simply “plug&play” into existing video management systems. These mobile transmitters are deployed with law enforcement and first responders across the globe. Their ability to provide secure, full HD quality and highly-reliable video streaming within a small unit, and to enable it to be integrated into the current eco-system that is already installed at the receiving end, has made them a favorite choice with many companies and government agencies.
Over the course of the past few months, I have discussed a myriad of topics, from Big Data, the Internet of Things and emerging video surveillance-use cases, to analytics, storage complexities and IT technologies like virtualization and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). All of these trends have a significant effect on the security market, and in April they were highlighted in spades at ISC West. It’s great to talk about these trends but it’s far better to see how they are being leveraged in real-world applications. That’s really where we can all see the true value of new solutions and concepts. We’re lucky enough to work with some leading organizations that want others to benefit from their experience and I’m happy to have the opportunity to share two of these applications with you. Protecting Educational Facilities UCF has adopted advancements in technology, particularly video surveillance solutions, to help ensure stronger security on campus Educational institutions face an increasingly complex risk environment. Recent high-profile incidents emphasize these risks and magnify the vulnerabilities that educational facilities face. These incidents have led to more public demand for improved security solutions across campuses. The primary mission of these organizations is to deliver quality education to students, and they face the challenge of balancing between a highly secure facility and one that supports open interaction. The University of Central Florida is no different. This organization, one of the largest universities in the country, has adopted advancements in technology, particularly video surveillance solutions, to help ensure stronger security on campus. Active Shooter Incidents In March 2013, UCF faced an active shooter situation in which a former student planned to pull the fire alarm in a residence hall and then attack his classmates as the building was evacuated. However, the shooter’s gun jammed, and as officers were closing in on the gunman, he took his own life. During the university’s response to the incident, accessibility to critical video data was a major issue. Educational institutions face an increasingly complex risk environment UCF had cameras in the area where the incident took place, but first responders had no way of viewing the footage without being at the physical location of the video recorder. At the time, UCF had a wide variety of standalone systems in place, including non-integrated video surveillance, access control and intrusion systems. As a result, there was no way to centralize video management, viewing and analysis. Upgrading From Analog Systems Altogether, its security system consisted of older analog platforms that were reaching end of life, 58 standalone servers, 12,000 access points and a wide variety of DVRs — all being managed in a siloed manner. UCF needed a solution that would allow officials to centralize system management, store video data more effectively and reliably, and enable the security team to deliver situational awareness to responders when needed. Security leaders sought a way to further modernize its security, surveillance, access control and IT infrastructure The university deployed an HCI solution, one that is optimized for demanding, data-intensive workloads like video surveillance. Using standard off-the-shelf server hardware, the system aggregates the storage and compute resources from multiple servers into a single unified pool that all cameras can access, which maximizes performance and storage capacity utilization. The platform also hosts the university’s video management solution, which serves as a centralized source to manage video and effectively protect its security data. Because of the growing demand for video across UCF's campuses — for both safety and business purposes — the HCI solution’s ability to eliminate the opportunity for data loss and easily scale were key components in its selection. Protecting Air Travel And Airports In 2012, Charleston International Airport embarked on an ambitious upgrade project dubbed the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program. The $200 million initiative was designed to modernize and expand the facility to meet increased passenger demand. While the aesthetics and amenities of the airport were under construction, security leaders sought a way to further modernize its security, surveillance, access control and IT infrastructure. The IT and security teams needed to address the challenges of their existing standalone server environment, which included siloed systems, management complexity and high administrative and equipment costs. Charleston International Airport embarked on an ambitious upgrade project dubbed the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program Considering the high value of the airport’s video, security and IT data, it required a solution that could deliver reliable data protection, system resiliency and fault tolerance. The airport is required to store video for 30 days, but it seeks to expand its retention time to 60 days. Therefore, technology that can scale simply was key in the selection process. Storage System Updates It also required a storage platform that could manage the demanding and write-intensive nature of its nearly 250 IP surveillance cameras — a challenging task for traditional video recorders. The airport deployed HCI appliances to better manage captured video data and expand its archive capability for video surveillance. Users rely on video to validate whether something did or did not happen - and this is essential in airports HCI surveillance solutions are designed to provide industry-leading resiliency. Even if multiple hardware failures occur, including an entire appliance, video management servers will remain online and recording, and any previously recorded video will continue to be protected and accessible. Reducing Expenses And Costs The solution also reduced total cost of operations by consolidating servers, storage and client workstations into one enterprise-class solution that is easily managed from a single user interface, without the need for specialized IT skills. These use cases demonstrate the value emerging technologies bring to these types of modern environments. And they show that solutions like HCI are no longer simply much-talked about technology trends. Video, IT and security data is critical to organizations of all types and they need to ensure their investment in capturing this data is protected. From a security standpoint, users rely on video to validate whether something did or did not happen. If that video data isn’t protected, they lose a very valuable investigative tool. That isn’t an option in today’s complex environment. That’s is why it is paramount to understand how new technologies can help expand current capabilities and evolve security operations. This can’t be left to chance.

Inventory discrepancies are a growing problem in retail and can lead to rising prices if they are not prevented effectively. Thus protecting honest customers is essential. At Müller, the installation of the systems is always in accordance with strict data protection regulations which are fulfilled meticulously by the responsible installation company. Why did Müller choose eneo? “Based on the recommendation of our installation company, we carried out a three-week test in one location, and it was very successful,” explains Mario Messner, Managing Director at the security agency Müller Sicherheitsdienst Ulm MSDU. “Due to the high image quality, a lower recording rate was sufficient compared to another recorder model which we had in operation at the same time with 25 pictures per second. Because we wanted to keep the memory requirements as low as possible, it didn’t take us long to make a decision. We were also impressed by the price-performance ratio, which is significant when numerous cameras are being installed in each store.” Mario Messner has never regretted this decision, quite the contrary. “We now have numerous cameras, domes and recorders from eneo in operation in over sixty stores. The number is in the hundreds. The failure rate is so minimal that it is negligible. The equipment is absolutely reliable.”
The Jewish Museum in Frankfurt is one of the three major Jewish museums in Germany. It traces the interrelationship between Jews in Germany and their environment based on the example of Frankfurt. Prior to World War II the city of Frankfurt had the highest percentage of Jewish inhabitants with over 26,000 Jewish citizens. The building is secured today by 360° video surveillance. Its open character was intentionally selected, as the changing exhibitions are to be accessible to all interested visitors. However the museum, which is housed in two classical mansions, is one of the sites generally at risk as is the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. A balancing act that requires exceptional understanding from decision makers when it comes to security precautions. Blind angles caused by concrete columns in the foyerThe solid reinforced concrete construction of the building complex renovated in the 1980s in particular cannot always be regarded as being advantageous. Several concrete columns in the entrance area obstruct viewing and proved to be restrictive for installation of a video surveillance system suitable for identification of persons. Thomas Sittig, Technical Director of the Museum and responsible for security said, "In addition to appropriate checks of baggage and persons we have been using video surveillance since the opening. However, we encountered some difficulties in extending the existing system in the sensitive entrance area - on the one hand some areas of the foyer are difficult to view, and on the other hand the cable routing was made difficult because of the reinforced concrete and it is not possible to put it under plaster."Perfect solution replaces several cameras In the planning phase Peter Kleist, the Project Manager of Heer GmbH from Frankfurt, therefore proposed a solution with 360° video surveillance. He said, "The floor plan would have made at least five or six conventional surveillance cameras necessary to cover all the angles. But when we then considered the Almira System with its four virtual cameras, it immediately awakened great interest!″ The special lens of this ultra wide-angle camera not only delivers a 360° image field; with the ‘Almira C-1202', up to four virtual cameras can be displayed and controlled with full Pan/Tilt/Zoom functionality. The system is installed at a three-metre height so it can be seen and it has the whole foyer in view. Plus, its high-resolution 3-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers brilliant quality pictures to the full satisfaction of viewers when they view the 42" plasma monitor in the control centre. Three megapixels for clear and sharp picturesThe Security Officer can now choose between 2 x 180° panorama, 4 x 90° panorama or 360° views, and use a Videor KBD1 Keyboard to control the camera and all the fully electronic PTZ functions. At the same time, persons who enter a predefined area can be tracked automatically by the ‘Motion Tracking' function. "Features such as the integral motion detector, 4x zoom and intelligent alarm management are very helpful for us. In particular the retrospective motion tracking, or the ‘Luggage Left' function that allows objects to be monitored in predefined areas. The system immediately triggers an alarm when an exhibit is removed or, for example, an unattended bag is added," explained Sittig. High-resolution 360° recording"The 360° camera images are recorded by the ‘Almira R-01' Network Recorder which is matched especially to the Almira Camera," explained Peter Kleist. "The recorder is connected over a high-speed data link and we installed it behind one of the columns. It provides the advantage of also allowing execution of the full functionality of the 360° camera with a digital recorder - including the PTZ functions for the recorded pictures." Recording can be carried out controlled by events or time or also continuous; the 400 GB hard disk permits a recording time length of up to several weeks. Furthermore, duplex operation allows simultaneous recording and replay. In addition, it has extensive search functions, programmable pre- and post-alarm recording and sector naming for monitoring of obscured locations, such as the museum entrance area for example. Heer GmbH installed normal surveillance cameras in the outer area of the Rothschild Palace, which was built from 1812 to 1824. A total of eleven eneo CCTV cameras monitor the exterior facades, barriers and the different entrances. In addition to the 42" plasma monitor, their pictures are also switched to a further seven eneo control monitors at the cash desk and personnel entrance, and they are recorded by an eneo 16-channel DLR1 Digital Recorder in the control centre. Designed for discrete video surveillance Sittig is fully satisfied with the innovative camera system. "The 360° camera with matching recorder is the optimum solution for us - the system fulfills all the criteria we require: it is easy to install, its virtual cameras have everything in view throughout the whole area and they, just like the Almira Recorder, deliver clear and sharp pictures.″In this project, the preventative use of the camera system that is seen immediately upon entering the building is rather unusual: the camera and recorder were designed for discrete video surveillance and can be housed nearly invisibly in the ceiling when required. Such as the tiny cylinder camera that is installed barely noticeably above the entrance steps and which delivers first-class pictures.
