DIPOL at SECUREX International Security Fair, April 25-28, 2016

SECUREX, held every two years in Poznan, is the largest and most prestigious security industry trade fair in Poland and Central Europe. During the fair, leading suppliers of products and services for the protection of property and information, alarm systems, video surveillance and security solutions present their comprehensive range of products. Securex is also the ideal venue for the presentation of innovative solutions and new technologies.

During this edition, DIPOL showed a number of new products that were interesting for a wide audience. These were the newest generation of Hikvision CCTV cameras designed for difficult light conditions, analog CCTV equipment providing FullHD image quality, network equipment for industry (PoE switches, media converters). We also presented technologically advanced Sunell thermal imaging camera along with application scenarios. Installers of modern systems based on fiber optic cables were interested in optical video converters for use with HD-TVI/CVI cameras. The complement of the offer was 3D printer placed in SIGNAL rack cabinet.

Securex 2016 was visited by nearly 30 thousand people. Our stand was besieged by both enthusiasts of 3D printing and globally branded CCTV equipment. A huge interest among visitors was drawn by Darkfighter and Lightfighter cameras capable of working in difficult lighting conditions. A special attraction was Hikvision DS-2CD4A25FWD-IZS K17891 Lightfighter camera which, after uploading "black" and "white" lists of vehicles, can control parking barrier through its alarm output, without use of additional processing equipment or software.

Set of cameras awarded with Gold Medal MTP Securex 2016:
DS-2CD63C2F-IVS fisheye camera
and DS-2DF8236IV-AEL(W) rotating camera
The pair of video monitoring devices provides the best combination of the features of fisheye camera - observation of a large area, and of PTZ camera - detail closeup of any part of it with the use of optical zoom. After configuring the cameras through free iVMS-4200 software, the panoramic image from the fisheye camera creates a kind of map for the operator. After clicking on a point of the image, the system will automatically use the speed dome camera to zoom into the surroundings of the point.
Hikvision IP CCTV cameras with enhanced sensitivity and extremely wide dynamic range: Darkfighter, Lightfighter
Darkfighter - cameras for very low light environments
Darkfighter is the name of ultra-low-light cameras from Hikvision. The extremely high sensitivity of 0.002 lx in color mode is the result of using large image sensor, 1/1.8". The Hikvision DS-2CD4026FWD-A K1713 IP camera provides images with 2 MP resolution at 50 fps frame rate. Additionally, hardware wide dynamic range (WDR) with the depth of 120 dB ensures excellent visibility of details in dark and bright parts of the image. The implementation of the new H.264+ compression algorithm specially optimized for video surveillance allows for minimizing the data stream and the volume of recorded information. Built-in analytic tools are useful for creating advanced projects.

Lightfighter - automatic license plate recognition (LPR)
Lightfighter cameras can be used for license plate recognition. In order to get the full functionality, such a camera should be connected to a Hikvision NVR supporting the LPR function (after downloading a piece of software). The NVR stores previously imported lists of "white" and "black" car plates (allowed / prohibited) and the recordings of the cars emerging in the field of view of the camera. Depending on which list there is the license plate of the approaching car, the assigned alarm events will control the state of alarm outputs available in the system. For example, if the car is on the "white" list, the signal from the alarm output will open the entrance gate, whereas if the license of the car is contained in the "black" list, the system will alert the security guard. Another reaction can be assigned when the car is not in any list. In each case the system records the video with the license numbers. The operator can easily search the NVR resources for specific license plates by entering full, initial or fragmentary character/number set. Another searching option is based on the required time interval.
Hikvision IP cameras from R6 platform with H.264+ video compression
Hikvision cameras from the R6 platform use new compression method, H.264+. The algorithm is based on H.264 compression, but optimized for video surveillance. The results are very good, ensuring reduction of the data streams by 50-70%, while maintaining the same image quality compared with the H.264 codec. The effectiveness of the new method of compression is especially valuable in the case of cameras with higher resolutions, generating massive data streams.

New quality in CCTV:high resolution analog systems
HD-TVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface) and AHD (Analog High Definition) systems offer video resolutions 720p or 1080p at price levels only slightly higher than those of CVBS devices. The key to the success of the systems have been the combining of the advantages of analog systems (the ease of installation and configuration, compatibility of devices from different manufacturers) and IP systems (high resolution, immunity to interference). In the future it is planned to increase the resolution - there are first models with 3 MP and 5 MP resolutions.
Main advantages of HD-TVI / AHD systems:
  • no delay
  • natural live image due to lack of video compression
  • video transmission via coaxial cables
  • high resolution – 720p or 1080p
  • tribrid DVRs (HD-TVI) – support for HD-TVI, CVBS and IP cameras,
  • high resistance to electromagnetic interference through the use of QAM synchronous amplitude modulation and separation of luminance and chrominance signals
  • much easier configuration compared to systems based on IP protocol
  • two-way communication – access to OSD menus of cameras and PTZ control via the video cable, directly from the DVR
  • maximum video transmission range longer than in the case of CVBS signals
Taking into account industrial applications, the big advantage of the HD-TVI and AHD devices is the use of coaxial cables as the transmission medium. Many facilities are equipped with such wiring (all having older analog video surveillance systems), and the migration to IP systems based on computer twisted pair cables or optical fibers could be too costly or troublesome. In relation to IP systems, the new analog solutions allow for longer transmission links without intermediate devices (up to 300 meters, compared to 100-meter-long Ethernet connections). Alternatively, the HD-TVI or AHD signals can also be transmitted via twisted pair cables over distances up to 150 meters (using passive transformers – baluns), or via optical fibers up to 20 kilometers – using dedicated video-converters.
HD-TVI - fiber-optic transmission
Video-converter ULTIMODE HDTVI-201 L2020
The Securex 2016 trade fair will be an opportunity to show optical video converters for HD-TVI/CVI and AHD cameras. ULTIMODE video converters with 1, 2, 4 or 8 channels allow for implementation of point-to-point single-mode optical links over distances up to 20 km.
Thermal CCTV
Infrared thermography is a perfect complement to video surveillance based on visible light and reflected near-infrared radiation. Analog or IP cameras used in video monitoring systems enable the proper identification of people during the day, and, after using infrared illuminators, also in the darkness at night, within certain limited ranges. A thermal imaging camera works properly without any lighting. The image from the camera shows the distribution of temperature on the surfaces of the objects in the field of view, so it can be graduated in temperature scale divisions. Due to no lighting required for proper operation of the camera, the device remains invisible in the night (an intruder can be unaware of its presence). Such cameras are ideal for monitoring large areas with no or scarce artificial lighting (forests, ports, unlit parking lots, etc).
Thermal IP camera Sunell SN-TPC4200KT/F K1606
Thermal Sunell cameras are among the world's best thermal imaging cameras. Thanks to using high-end infrared detector, proprietary image processing algorithm, and new-generation lens with high transmission factor in the infrared range, the camera works perfectly in all weather conditions (independently from fog, rain, etc).
Example applications of thermal imaging cameras:
  • Intrusion detection even in bad weather conditions (parking lots, forests, water reservoirs, hydroelectric plants, ports, other areas with no or scarce artificial lighting). The cameras can effectively spot intruders day and night, despite rain, snow, fog, dust.
  • Inspection of electric lines/cables, transformer and switching stations - an incorrect contact in an electric circuit means increased resistance for the current passing through and an additional amount of electrical energy converted into heat. The place with higher temperature is clearly visible in the image from a thermal imaging camera. The user can diagnose improper contacts, overloaded fuses, cables and transmission lines, overheated transformers.
  • Machinery - detection of overloaded elements, bad cooling, increased friction; diagnostics of engines, bearings, gears, belts, shafts, gearboxes, pumps, compressors, blowers etc.
  • Water supply and sewage systems - examination of the condition of water pipes and their insulation, location of leaks or blockage of pipes, diagnostics of pumps, valves, degree of filling of tanks etc.
  • Tank level monitoring - the temperature distribution shown on the image from a thermal camera can be used to estimate the fill level of closed containers.
  • Monitoring of the cooling process in the development and production of die-cast components - the uniformity of temperature in the components during the cooling process is very important for the quality of the products. Diff Alarm function (implemented in the Sunell camera) can automatically detect a situation in which the temperature difference exceeds a predetermined value.
  • Monitoring and diagnostics of solar systems - damage to solar collectors could lead to reduced system performance or to a huge rise in temperature resulting in the risk of fire.
  • Examination of temperature distribution on asphalt roads.
  • Detection of hot spots in order to avoid fire.
Industrial switches - equipment for all conditions!
ULTIPOWER industrial switches are capable of reliable operation in harsh environmental conditions typical for many industries, like increased dust levels, high or low temperature, high humidity. Such switches should also be mounted in hermetic enclosures installed on poles or other structures located outdoors. The ULTIPOWER switches are equipped with Ethernet ports (Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet, depending on the model) for connecting IP cameras, computers etc. The industrial switches are protected by housings with IP40 ingress protection rating (against solid foreign objects greater than 1 mm in diameter). All the Ethernet PoE ports can power the connected devices (after supplying the switch with 48-50 VDC). Each of the industrial switches has been equipped with optical module or SFP port converting the transmission medium to fiber.
ULTIPOWER Ethernet industrial switches enable data transmission at rates of 10/100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps. Their RJ45 ports support auto-negotiation and Power over Ethernet (PoE) functions. The devices automatically discover PD devices (Power Device) compliant with IEEE 802.3af standard and supply power to them. This way, it is easy to power network devices located in places without access to AC lines, such as access points, IP cameras, IP phones etc. The switches have been equipped with optical converters or SFP slots for installing modules changing the transmission medium to fiber.
