Idis Rolls Out DirectIP In US And Asia

06-03-2014 A luxury hotel and resort group has completed the first installation of Idis DirectIP full-HD surveillance at its new flagship resort in Phuket, Thailand, as part of a wider DirectIP rollout programme. Commissioned ahead of the resort’s inauguration in December, the project is the first of twelve DirectIP solutions to be installed across the group’s new properties in Asia and North America. Ahead of opening the Phuket resort, the group’s security team needed to implement a modern and high performance HD video surveillance solution that would be unobtrusive and match the resorts luxury brand and image. The solution needed to ensure the safety and security of the resort’s guests and staff, while the implementation needed to meet extremely tight deadlines ahead of the inauguration in late 2013.  In November 2013, the hotel group turned to their trusted systems integrator, Rutledge Integrated Systems (RIS).  RIS worked in partnership with CCTV specialist’s iCenter HD to review a number of server-based surveillance solutions. After thorough evaluation, the team selected DirectIP, based on its innovative high performance combined with its capability for fast and simple implementation, affordable pricing and bundled Idis Center video management, requiring no ongoing licence fees. The complete end-to-end DirectIP solution, comprising 45 internal and external dome cameras and  two 32-channel network video recorders (NVRs), is managed through the simple and intuitive Idis Center video management software (VMS). The IP-enabled and vandal proof range of one and two megapixel cameras, also feature pan-tilt-zoom, low light and audio functionality. Eighteen […]

HK Public Rental Housing Enjoys HD Security With Vivotek

17-02-2014 Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering Co., Ltd., a system integrator in Hong Kong working with Vivotek distributor Everbest Technologies, recently completed the implementation of a surveillance system for ensuring public rental housing security for Kai Tak Development, which is a huge and highly complex development project planned by the local government in Hong Kong. The customer, Kai Tak Development, requested a surveillance system that can be used to monitor the indoor and outdoor spaces of a new public rental housing community, including areas such as the entrance, the main door, aisles, stairs, exits and lifts. The system was expected to ensure residents’ security by acquiring comprehensive environmental information. Thus, effective surveillance of public areas is of paramount importance. A full range and high quality megapixel video surveillance system has been considered as the best solution. To achieve this goal, Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering installed a total of 368 Vivotek cameras from a variety of six models: eighty-two FD8136, forty-five IP8335H, one hundred and forty-three FD8335H, thirty-four SD8121, nine IP8152, and fifty-five VS8102. Features such as the mini size, P-iris, auto iris, vandal-proof properties, wide dynamic range, PTZ functions, and high resolution were the primary reasons that Cheung Hing Electronic Electrical Engineering selected these cameras. These features were vital for capturing images that can provide accurate and comprehensive information for identifying persons of interest and vehicle license plate numbers in outdoor and indoor spaces under various environmental conditions. All six of the models provide features that allow them to satisfy the end users’ […]
