Ridley College Secures Campus With Exacqvision

Ridley College is Ontario’s largest co-educational boarding school. Since 1889, Ridley College has prepared students for university. The school currently has an enrollment of more than 600 students from 35 countries.  The challenge put forward by the college was to find an open architecture system that would allow them to utilise their existing analogue cameras and integrate with their current Keyscan access system The exacqVision A-Series hybrid servers provided them with the solution and gave Ridley College the opportunity to grow and migrate their surveillance system. With the hybrid server, Ridley College utilised their existing infrastructure and analogue cameras while also integrating with their current access control system for an all-in-one video surveillance solution. The system comprises of 11 Exacqvision A-Series hybrid servers plus Exacqvision Enterprise VMS software with 116 analogue cameras from Bosch, and 26 Arecont Vision and Axis IP cameras, plus the Keyscan access control system. The college is able to benefit from the fact that the new system utilises the existing infrastructure; it deters theft and crime and protects liability with the pool and fieldhouse, as well as providing a sense of security for students, faculty and staff.  The college is now able to manage video with the free, easy-to-use Exacq mobile apps. “The Exacqvision system provides a sense of confidence, security and protection. We can view the entire campus from anywhere in our security vehicles, which is spectacular. Since we’ve installed the Exacqvision system we’ve been able to recoup minimally the loss of the damage we’ve incurred.” […]

Grundig Monitors Europe’s Largest Disaster Response Exercise

By Andy Ball on September 9, 2013 The largest disaster response exercise ever undertaken in Europe, codenamed Operation Taranis, recently took place in Salzburg, Austria. The premise of the exercise was that severe storms and rain in Salzburg and its surrounding area had caused landslides, buildings to collapse and flooding. This had also led to a number of train and boat disasters. In addition, there was a plane crash at the airport and chemical leaks at two nearby towns. National emergency response vehicles were deployed for many weeks. The Austrian Minister for the Interior and the Salzburg authorities then decided to deploy additional support from the international EU civil protection response system. In total, 900 emergency response units from seven different countries attended 22 different, hypothetical emergency incidents, over 3 days. The company responsible for Operation Taranis and its organization was Excon. They appointed LaBoe Security OG to provide remote viewing, transmission and monitoring of all the incidents and the responses. Despite the huge scale of the operation, each of the 22 incidents was monitored in real-time. Full HD, IP cameras from Grundig provided the images and VMS software from Alnet Systems provided control. The cameras were mounted on hydraulic, telescopic masts and powered by batteries. Their HD images were transmitted using wireless IP technology, by fibre optic network or by a 3G mobile network. A walk-in observation room contained many Grundig Full HD monitors along with three video walls. Each incident was also remotely monitored by the EU […]

Bosch License Plate Recognition Functionality Within Bosch VMS

Bosch license plate recognition functionality within the Video Management System (VMS) Product Image Bosch license plate recognition functionality within the Video Management System (VMS) Product Image A new partnership between Bosch Security Systems, Inc. and Streaming Networks will deliver integrated license plate recognition functionality within the Video Management System (VMS) v4.5 from Bosch. The two companies are working together to give customers greater capabilities for gathering vehicle information as part of their security surveillance infrastructure. Streaming Networks’ iRecord License Plate LPR-100 reads retro-reflective license plates found in the U.S. and Canada. It is powered by the company’s innovative optical character recognition (OCR) engine, allowing it to accurately read plates even when they are improperly aligned, partially hidden by plate frames or have vertically stacked characters. When paired with license plate capture cameras from Bosch—such as the DINION capture product family—the system delivers consistent, high-quality images of vehicle license plates even in low-light conditions or when headlight or sun glare are present. “Streaming Networks optical character recognition is focused on assisting customers in tackling real-world security and surveillance issues, such as reading license plates under challenging conditions. We are excited to partner with Bosch to deliver this cutting-edge OCR solution to global customers,” says Ayub Khan, CEO Streaming Networks, Santa Clara, CA. Bosch customers can now view the iRecord License Plate LPR-100 device page in the main VMS window, as just another local edge storage device. This integration makes it easier for operators to access license plate data, which can […]
