It seems that there will be a lot of security video developments coming from the Las Vegas exhibition which opens this Wednesday. Here are some items as provided to Security Magazine.

HD through existing coax – Everyone talks about IP and fiber optics but SG Digital of Simi Valley, Calif., is swimming in another direction, appealing to installers more used to coax and end users who have the installed infrastructure and a desire to have their own system outside of Its. There is no network to set up, no bandwidth issues to deal with…just replace existing

analog cameras and DVR with HD cameras and DVR. The firm’s HDCCTV is a new video surveillance system using serial digital interface  (SDI) transmission, which is used by the broadcast industry for transmission of HDTV signals digitally over coaxial cable. SDI is widely used and accepted throughout the broadcast industry. SDI transmission is a standard for transmitting 720P and 1080P video over coaxial cable, uncompressed and non-packetized. Just like analog, SDI starts streaming out of the source line by line to a receiver with no latency. SDI is based on the work of SMPTE for the broadcast industry, according to the firm’s Jeff Silverman.

Honeywell aims at smaller sites – The new NetAXS-123 access control system. The one-, two- or three-door system completes Honeywell’s portfolio of NetAXS Web-based access control. The NetAXS offering gives users all the benefits of traditional access control such as helping secure doors, managing employee access and sites remotely, and pulling reports easily to meet compliance requirements. The new NetAXS-123 is designed to make security access control simpler and more affordable for smaller businesses. It features a flexible, web-based design that helps users save time and money by reducing or eliminating costs and oversight associated with PC-based systems by eliminating the expense of servers and software licenses. Because of its web browser interface, multiple users can manage the system from any location and avoid potential hardware issues, including system lock-ups and virus attacks. The embedded web server gives users full control to monitor and view live events in real time while allowing users to manually control access areas such as doors and card readers. Honeywell will demonstrate the system at ISC West 2010 (Booth #14023). For more information, visit

Honeywell on video bandwagon -- EQUIP family of IP products and the first in a series of high definition cameras. The new HD3MDIP indoor mini-dome provides 720p images at extremely low bandwidth for significantly reduced storage requirements even in low light. The HD3MDIP is the latest addition to Honeywell’s expanded IP portfolio of high definition cameras that allows end users to integrate a broad range of digital technology into their analog systems. The HD mini-dome provides extremely high picture quality at the cost of traditional analog cameras. It features an externally accessible web-based menu to let operators view and control cameras from virtually anywhere, and camera tamper detection alerts users instantly if a camera has been obstructed or vandalized.

Videotec makes good on PSIA involvement -- Videotec joined PSIA in 2009 and during the last few months has actively worked to gain a thorough knowledge of the protocol. Now this common language has been successfully integrated within its ALBERT unit for video analytics. A prototype will be shown at the ISC West.

All visitors at Videotec’s stand can see and try the system to remotely control the PTZ telemetry through the PSIA protocol. They will also appreciate the surprisingly new way the ALBERT system helps operators to monitor a certain area. It is based on the smart cooperation between units, on an advanced outdoor-oriented event detection, on the ease of configuration and use.
