Physical security is continually evolving. New technologies emerge every year, and devices that have been around for decades — from smoke detectors to IP cameras — become more advanced in order to meet the demands of the new security landscape. But as we take part in this progression and strive to leverage the latest and greatest devices, it’s important to never forget one of the core technologies of the security industry: video.
In small businesses, offices or buildings, it can often be difficult to justify the cost of installing IP cameras against the benefits, but this solution provides intuitive, cost-effective IP video specifically for smaller installations.
Many within the surveillance industry are deploying IP video surveillance cameras and networked recorders using the same design and engineering strategies used for building analog CCTV camera and DVR-based systems. On the surface this makes sense: surveillance is surveillance; the fundamental optics and geometry remains the same regardless of the medium. What isn’t the same is how the IP systems operate under day and night conditions.
Perfect for smaller security applications that require flexible control and specific budget guidelines, this remote DVR from Speco Technologies is a four channel H.264 networkable digital video recorder that has dynamically programmable recording priority, motion detection, alarms and continuous scheduling.
The indoor AXIS Q6035 and the outdoor-ready AXIS Q6035-E provides Active Gatekeeper, the camera can automatically move to a preset position upon motion detection in a pre-defined area, and track the detected object. Q6035 HDTV 1080p complies with the SMPTE 274M standard regarding a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (twice the resolution of HDTV 720p), full frame rate at 25/30 frames per second, HDTV color fidelity and a 16:9 format. AXIS Q6035 also supports 50/60 frames per second in HDTV 720p, ideal for applications that require the capture of quick movements and smoother video. Read More
This month, Security magazine highlights John McClurg, Senior VP and CISO at Blackberry, and the evolving role of the CISO. Also, we highlight Tim McCreight, Acting CSO for the city of Calgary, Alberta, and discuss if civilians can truly Stop the Bleed and how to calculate ROI for better security. Industry leaders discuss public references and their impact on security careers, information security frameworks and convergence trends in 2020.
