H.265 Compression Set To Make A Mark On IP Video Surveillance

H.265/HEVC could enable IP cameras with even larger megapixel counts The emergence last year of a new format for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is poised to have a huge impact on IP video surveillance cameras over the next few years. Among the benefits of the new H.265/HEVC coding format over the legacy H.264/MPEG-4 is a 40 percent or more bit rate reduction at the same visual quality. Therefore, a camera could provide either better visual quality than H.264 with existing network and storage requirements, or it could provide the same visual quality with 40 percent less network and storage needs. H.265/HEVC could enable IP cameras with even larger megapixel counts – 20 megapixel cameras, for example – to operate more efficiently without overwhelming network infrastructures. H.265/HEVC also brings improvements in noise levels, colour spaces and, most importantly for surveillance, an enhanced dynamic range. H.265 implementation inevitable but some years away Implementation of the new standard in most IP video cameras, however, is still years away. As with other video standards, the security market inherits the H.265/HEVC format from the much larger consumer electronics market. Typically, after standards are developed, it takes several years for their use to make its way into various markets, starting with the consumer video market and later into security and other smaller markets. Currently, the leading video coding format is H.264/MPEG-4, which was initially developed in 1999 and has only recently become the de facto standard in the security/surveillance market, more than a decade […]

Arecont Vision Guards The Hub Cargo Facilty In Hong Kong

Tecnologie e Servizi // Case Condividi As one of the world’s largest express delivery companies, TNT Express moves 4.7 million parcels, documents and pieces of freight every week to more than 200 countries. TNT Express operates air and road transportation networks in Europe, China, South America, the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. To more efficiently manage shipping operations in the Asia-Pacific area, TNT Express Worldwide (HK) Ltd. in Hong Kong opened a new 70,000-square-foot hub facility. TNT Express Worldwide needed a surveillance system to heighten security efforts at its new hub facility in Hong Kong.   When reviewing video surveillance alternatives, the company prioritized high resolution and superior image quality for identification and incident detection. TNT Express also favored using fewer cameras for greater system efficiency, and had the need to include remote monitoring / camera setting management capabilities. The project ADT Security designed an IP-based networked surveillance system and performed the installation for TNT Express as part of new construction. According to Tyn van Amelsfoort, regional security support manager at TNT Express Worldwide (HK) Ltd., TNT Express had evaluated several megapixel cameras related to another project with ADT Security, enabling a quick decision to go with Arecont Vision for the new facility.  Willie Hong, Senior Sales Engineer of ADT Hong Kong Limited, said TNT Express chose Arecont Vision megapixel IP cameras for their outstanding resolution and as a means to “future-proof” the system for future expansion. Arecont Vision’s 5-megapixel (MP) AV5115DN MegaVideo® Compact cameras are installed at high […]

The Resolution Revolution

jan14-feature2 Timothy Compston takes a closer look at the impact that HD and megapixel video surveillance cameras are having in the fast expanding IP environment. Fit-for-purpose? Discussing the take-up of megapixel cameras, Joel White, senior product manager at American Dynamics – part of Tyco Security Products – reveals that currently the bulk of installed cameras are in the 2 megapixel range. White stresses that even with the prospect of enhanced resolution coming on stream, in the guise of 8 megapixel cameras, everything still has to lead back to a solution’s ultimate goal: "When you think about it video surveillance solutions are really targeting a specific purpose, every camera in that system is delivering video to meet that goal and resolution is only one part of that equation." Ultimately, White believes, that it comes down to the actual ‘use case’: "What is my deployment situation? What do I need to extract out of the video?" White goes on to say that across the security industry, sadly, there still remains an obsession with ‘big numbers’ and ‘nice specs’: "This provides more business and people kind of get glazed over and think that bigger is better, which is not always the case. For everything there is a trade-off." He warns, for instance, that although there are many high resolution cameras out there offering 3, 5 or even higher megapixels very few, in his experience, come with high quality lenses rated above 3 megapixels. With larger camera resolutions White also flags up the […]
