MOBOTIX AG, a leading manufacturer of digital high-resolution, network-based video security systems has released details of a project at Specialized Bicycle Components in the UK to secure access to its headquarters, workshop and showroom protecting high value engineering tools and concept models.
Dahua Technology announces the signing of a strategic agreement with Exar to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology. Under the terms of the new agreement, Exar will be able to design, manufacture, and sell high-definition analog video solutions utilizing HDCVI technology as licensed from Dahua. As the HDCVI technology inventor and patent owner, Dahua has made it as a global open standard, providing open access for any third part, including competing manufacturers, to use HDCVI.
At one time, the function of an access control system was simply to enable facilities to control the ability to enter and leave without using hard keys, while creating a logging system with no paper. Access control systems have evolved into multi-faceted tools that can control the movement of people and assets, support video, and integrate cameras as well as financial and vending systems — all with the use of one smartcard or token. Because of this complexity, it’s essential to follow the proper steps in planning access control systems.
RADWIN, the global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, today announced that its point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless broadband systems were deployed by a municipality in Central Africa in a large-scale SAFE CITY video surveillance project. RADWIN’S systems connect high definition (HD) video cameras installed in strategic locations throughout the city back to the local police command center.
A mission-critical project like city surveillance calls for not only high performance and reliable solutions, but also the capability to handle harsh outdoor environments and large data storage 24/7 with non-stop recording for 90 days. With Surveon’s end to end solutions, from 3-megapixel cameras, hardware RAID NVR, clustered storage, to enterprise VMS, the Sükhbaatar district police have become better equipped to monitor and protect the community against illegal activities.

On-Net Surveillance Systems, Inc. (OnSSI) announced that the Atlanta Public School System (APS) has implemented OnSSI’s Ocularis video-centric PSIM (physical security information management), enabling the Atlanta Police Department (APD) to access surveillance cameras at the schools for improved situational awareness in the event of an incident or emergency. The highly efficient and cost-effective IP video surveillance solution is part of the school system’s initiative to upgrade its older analog cameras on an ongoing basis.
The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) today announced it has achieved important new milestones within its Physical Logical Access Interoperability (PLAI) specification less than a year after forming a Working Group to develop it. PLAI is being designed to enable employee identities and roles defined or revoked in an authoritative logical identity system to automatically propagate to one or more PLAI-compliant physical access control systems (PACS). PLAI synchronizes physical and logical identity management and access control and standardizes functions that typically have required custom programming to achieve.
