IRVINE, California, September 14, 2017 – Dahua Technology USA, a leading manufacturer of video surveillance solutions proven the world over, has been honored with a New Product of the Year award from Security Today for its 4K HDCVI fisheye camera.
Dahua’s 4K HDCVI fisheye is the first HD-over-coax fisheye with 4K (8MP) resolution. The camera combines three innovative technologies: fisheye, 4K, and HDCVI. Delivering a 360-degree hemispherical view, the fisheye provides broad coverage with no blind spots, as well as multiple dewarping modes to view individual elements separately. 4K resolution improves the clarity of a magnified scene to view or record crisp forensic video from a large field of view.
HDCVI provides high-definition and ultra-high-definition images over coaxial cable, at transmission distances of up to 300m (985.25 feet) over CAT6. In this way, users can maximize their investment in an analog infrastructure while enjoying the high-quality images and functionality typical to a network video surveillance system. HDCVI simultaneously transmits three signals (video, audio, and data) over a single coaxial cable, and dual-way data transmission allows the HDCVI camera to communicate with an HDCVI DVR to send control signals or to trigger alarms.
“The high performance and cost advantages of HDCVI have brought high-definition video surveillance to a vast set of budget-conscious end users who would have otherwise had to wait for an upgrade to IP,” stated Janet Fenner, head of marketing for Dahua USA. “We are thrilled to further serve the market with this fisheye addition to our 4K HDCVI line.”
Dahua will be presented with the New Product of the Year award at this year’s ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits. Ralph Jensen, editor-in-chief of Security Today, remarked on the cutting-edge technology of this year’s winners:
“The New Product of the Year contest gives us a terrific sampling of security solutions, but what is more amazing each year is the technical savvy that comes along with new products. New Product of the Year allows forward-thinking manufacturers to be able to share their vision of security.”

BrainChip Holdings Ltd. (ASX: BRN) ("BrainChip" or "the Company"), a leading developer of software and hardware accelerated solutions for advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications, has won the Security Today’s New Product of the Year Award 2017 in the Video Analytics category for its BrainChip Studio software suite. The award honors the outstanding products considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. The trophy will be accepted by BrainChip during the ASIS International 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits, September 25th – 28th, Dallas, Texas.
BrainChip Studio aids law enforcement and intelligence agencies to search vast amounts of video footage many times faster than previously possible, enabling them to quickly identify patterns or faces. Most significantly, the software can be utilized with existing infrastructure.
The software suite simulates the spiking neural networks found in the human brain. It works with low-resolution video, even in noisy environments, and requires only a 24x24 pixel image to detect and classify faces and objects. Furthermore, BrainChip Studio can be trained on a single image in milliseconds and does not need the vast datasets, extended learning time or substantial compute power associated with other forms of video processing using artificial intelligence.
Now in its ninth year, Security Today’s New Product of the Year Award is selected at the sole discretion of an independent panel of judges from the security industry.
“At a time of heightened global security, BrainChip Studio meets the urgent need for a rapidly deployable object and facial search technology to tame the massive volume of video footage already created and in the making,” said Bob Beachler, BrainChip’s SVP of Marketing and Business Development. “We are extremely honored to receive the Security Today New Product of The Year Award, which validates the groundbreaking nature of BrainChip’s technology.”
BrainChip Studio software runs under Windows or Linux. It is compatible with all major video encoding formats and is available to select law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

To schedule a demonstration of BrainChip Studio at the ASIS conference, please visit: www.brainchipinc.com/contact.
Beginning this July 17, GSN will publish detailed descriptions by Winners and Finalists of the reasons their entries were selected by the Judges; Don’t miss these in-depth descriptions , which will be available every day in the GSN Airport, Searport, Border Security Weekly; the Daily Insider and Cybersecurity Weekly newsletters!
We would like to nominate the PureTech Systems’ geospatial (map-based) video management command and control, combined with the PureActiv® long range patented video analytics for the GSN Border Security and Immigration“Best Long Range Surveillance Solution” award.
The solution has been selected, deployed, thoroughly tested and fully accepted through a rigorous multi-year process by the Department of Homeland Security’s Custom’s and Border Protection to provide long range border surveillance along the southern border of the United States and Mexico. It is now being considered by the CBP for its mobile deployment solution along the same border.
Most Video Management Systems manage cameras that extend to a few hundred yards at most. As such, the capabilities of the user interface reflect this relatively short distance. However, for border situation, cameras must utilize higher resolutions and larger lenses, and the VMS must include additional technologies to manage these greater distances and larger view volumes.In addition to its capability as a robust VMS system with video analytics, for border applications, several capabilities set it apart from other solutions:
a. Detection and Classification – The ability to detect and classify IOIs (Items of Interest) at extreme ranges and under difficult environmental conditions sets the PureActiv analytics part from others. The ability to not only accurately detect, but also track actual map locations (latitude, longitude and elevation) of IOIs in real time, using only video, provides the CBP officers critical information to monitor and apprehend targets.
b.Advanced camera control algorithms. Providing the user the ability to control a camera with precision at zoom ranges of 5 miles and beyond. This includes pointing accuracies of a few meters at extreme ranges. This feature also extends to camera auto follow, which locks onto the video image of the target and automatically controls the camera to retain lock, allowing the operator to take other response actions.
c.Map-Based sensor control. Manually steering a camera to a target at a range of 5 miles is an almost insurmountable task. The PureActiv map based control, allows a user to steer a camera to a specific map location by clicking on a map, by receiving coordinates from another sensor system or by manually entering target information given by a field officer.
d. The ability to add user landmarks. This provides the ability to direct responders to a geo-location and quicklyre-aim cameras to a location of interest, which can be time consuming when securing a vast area such as a country’s border.
e. Viewshed capability: As viewing distances become greater, more potential obstructions and terrain can block thecamera’s view. Having a map-based visual guide to indicate what the camera can view, and what the camera cannot view, based on these obstructions, can save valuable time in selecting the proper viewing camera.
PEARL RIVER, NY jULY 10, 2017 Qognify, the leader in big data solutions for physical security and operations, today announced that it has expanded the integration of Bosch network video security cameras and Qognify’s Situator and VisionHub, providing customers unique advanced technology and business benefits. This best-of-breed solution creates centralized management for the entire platform with direct integration of Bosch cameras to Situator (Situation Management / PSIM) and VisionHub (Video Management System).
The integration enhances security management and operational benefits by leveraging situation management, video and visualization capabilities:
· Centralized control and management through Situator– direct integration between Bosch’s network video security cameras and Situator. The integration enables PTZ and PTZ-like control for moving and fixed cameras, automatic triggering of processes when predefined incidents occur based on pre-defined alarm rules using camera built-in video analytics, playback via local camera storage and camera tampering detection.
· Advanced video management capabilities via Qognify VisionHub, including:
- Dewarping – the advanced integration of Bosch’s FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 camera and Qognify’s VMS, eliminates the fish eye lens distortion, enabling 360° of view, without blind spots, with an undistorted overview image. Additionally, the PTZ-like control of the video, lets customers digitally pan-tilt-zoom to focus on details without losing the bigger picture. This advance support of dewarping means empowering the benefit from wide coverage using a single device, while having a "normal" view of an otherwise distorted or reversed image.
Qognify records the original camera stream and de-warps the video for viewing purposes, enabling each operator a unique view.
- Reduced storage and network bandwidth with VisionHub – Bosch Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction, a feature that optimizes storage capacity and reduces network strain by using bandwidth only when needed. By intelligently distinguishing between noise and relevant information Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction reduces the camera’s bitrate by up to 50% substantially contributing to a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
- Network optimization – overcoming network overload during working hours by automated, scheduled transfer from the camera onboard storage to the center.
- Zero-loss-of-data – automatic filling of missing recording data on the SVR by restoring missing video from the camera onboard storage.
- Video Analytics at the Edge – Qognify’s VisionHub integrates with Bosch’s Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent Video Analytics which runs on the camera. This enables delivering of video analytics alarms based on pre-definable alarm rules from the camera to VisionHub and Situator.

CAPE TOWN July 7, 2017 Autonomous drones are set to take over border patrols, crime hotspot monitoring and more, says South Africa'sAirborne Drones.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)s, commonly known as drones, will soon be a common sight over border zones, crime hotspots and city streets, as public safety and security officials and police departments discover the cost saving and efficiencies offered by drone patrol 'armies', says Airborne Drones, a South African-based international manufacturer of enterprise-grade drones.
"Drones provide the ideal solution to the problems and limitations faced by other surveillance methods such as GPS tracking, CCTV camera observation, biometric surveillance and ground patrols," says Airborne Drones South Africa. "Aerial surveillance is increasingly being harnessed for security monitoring; but traditionally, this has been carried out using helicopters - which are costly to deploy - and with drones controlled by a user - which can be somewhat limited in terms of operating hours. However, drone surveillance does present an easier, faster, and cheaper method of data collection, as well as a number of other key advantages. Specialised security drones can enter narrow and confined spaces, produce minimal noise, and can be equipped with night vision cameras and thermal sensors, allowing them to provide imagery that the human eye is unable to detect. In addition, these UAVs can quickly cover large and difficult-to-reach areas, reducing staff numbers and costs, and do not require much space for their operators."
"Autonomous, long-range security drones are at the vanguard of new policing methods", says Airborne Drones South Africa. "Offering live video feeds to ground control stations, these drones can range autonomously over pre-programmed flight paths for extended periods of time, allowing for ongoing routine patrols across wide areas such as borders, maritime regions and high security installations. Should an incident be detected, ground crews can then follow objects or intruders from a safe distance, providing visual support to safety and security teams. UAVs can provide detailed visual documentation of sites, enabling effective analysis, risk management and security planning."
"Numerous countries are already rolling out security drones to support their public safety and defence initiatives", says Airborne Drones. UAVs are also instrumental in managing transport infrastructure safety and security and event security, from event security infrastructure through to spectator and crowd control and safety, to overall health and safety planning around the world.
Israel has long harnessed advanced drones for military surveillance, and recently sold a fleet of so-called 'spy drones' to the Irish army; the US FBI has also used drones for surveillance and tracking for several years. In Australia, a new $50 million Defence Cooperative Research Centre will develop long-range drones, automated vehicles and robots to help Australian soldiers fight the wars of the future. India is currently looking to military-grade UAVs for maritime and other surveillance and intelligence gathering, Brazil's São Paulo last month became the first Latin American city to use drones for public security surveillance, and the German city of Hamburg this week said it would deploy surveillance drones as part of its arsenal against an expected 100,000 demonstrators at the G20 summit this weekend.
In Australia's New South Wales, the authorities are even using helicopter and drone surveillance along the coast to protect holiday makers from rip currents and sharks.
"Drones are ideally suited for reconnaissance or rapid situation awareness with application for ground force units to detect and monitor potential threats; and they also provide an additional oversight in instances where security guards are deployed to ensure their adherence to patrolling routines. Their speed, size, maneuverability and additional technologies make UAVs the perfect supplement to ground security teams seeking to perform monitoring tasks more quickly and efficiently. Drones have a competitive edge over stationary cameras, as intruders can't easily step out of sight, and they can cover areas that are normally out of reach. Security drones add a whole new dimension to surveillance, safety and security, and as such, we can expect them to be commonly in use in every country in the world within just a few years," says Airborne Drones.
