The administrative segregation unit of the Colorado State Penitentiary was designed to hold the worst of the worst. So when a new high-security complex at the department’s East Canon Complex south of Denver was planned, it was designed to bring services to the prisoners rather than move prisoners from their cells.
“These guys are locked up 23 hours a day,” said John Jubic, the Department of Corrections’ end-user solutions manager. “Any time we move these prisoners, it takes two to six guards to do it. That was the driving force behind what we are doing.”
Via an IP network, the department is delivering basic services, such as TV, telephone and visitation services, to hardened kiosks in each cell. Each prisoner is entitled to some privileges, including virtual visits from visitors’ centers outside the prison, tailored to the prisoner’s disciplinary status. A high-speed network delivers many of those virtual visits to the cell without the risk or hassle of moving the prisoner, bringing visitors into the complex or delivering materials to a cell.
The Seattle Police Department will transform its small legacy outdoor wireless mesh network into an 802.11n-based operation that will cover a wide geographic swatch of the city for IP video surveillance without the need for the complex routing necessary in legacy mesh networks.
The department’s current outdoor wireless mesh network consists of a handful of older-model Azalea Networks 802.11a/b/g access points, which are usually deployed around the city in a pair of high-tech Homeland Security command RVs. Each RV is equipped with an Azalea MSR1000 dual-radio indoor wireless router. The department also has a pair of MSR2000 two-radio wireless mesh routers and five MST200 single-radio edge devices embedded in IP video surveillance tripods.
“The equipment allows the two vehicles to talk to each other and be networked together, and we can deploy battery-powered cameras within range of either vehicle so that we can bring video in from the scene,” said detective Monty Moss.
Typically one of the command vehicles is set up at the site of a major event, supporting cameras within 300 feet. The second command vehicle is then parked a block or so away, giving the team reach around a corner or through the buildings that are in the way, so it can add another camera, Moss explained. The command vehicles also collect wireless IP video surveillance feeds from third parties, such as nearby restaurants, to expand coverage of blind spots, he added. Read full article below
The D-Link DGS-3620 series can be part of a stack up to 12 units high, offering a 40 Gbps data stacking backplane in full-duplex mode.
D-Link has let loose a flurry of new network products, including a wireless access point, surveillance cameras, switches, and software—some of which are available now and others to appear over the next several months.
On the software side, D-Link has introduced Insight, a Web-based network management application, with two versions Basic and Plus. Features of the basic edition include:
- Functionality for doing network discovery and tracking devices connected to the switch by MAC address, IP, and switch port;
- Device “fingerprinting” to authenticate DHCP and DNS servers, routers/gateways, and clients;
- Configuration management with backup of switch settings for speedy restoration;
- Notification alerts about changes in device connectivity to the network, such as hardware additions or switch disconnection.
- The Plus edition offers those features plus security monitoring of individual devices and extended fingerprinting functions.
- Insight Basic and Insight Plus are offered for D-Link’s existing DGS-1210 series switches through yearly subscriptions starting at $49.99 and $179.99, respectively.
“HD CCTV cameras are the result of a marriage between digital security cameras and IP CCTVs. As high visual clarity is the scoring feature of this technology, it can offer its best if put to use in areas where the level of activity is high, like monitoring traffic inflow, security checks at airports, railway stations, metro stations, malls, cinema halls, etc”.
HauteSpot Networks Corporation of San Luis Obispo California announces the release and immediate availability of the innovative HauteSHOT microNVR. The HauteSHOT microNVR combines all of the functions needed for high quality remote/edge IP video recording and robust connectivity in one ultra-compact device. The HauteSHOT microNVR measures only 4”x4”x1”, consumes only 8 watts, and operates on 12VDC making it one of the smallest IP recording devices on the market today. Its small size allows it to be placed almost anywhere, including on vehicles, on street poles, along fence lines, or even in pockets. It is the perfect companion to mega pixel cameras being placed along city streets, on buses, in police and fire vehicles, in small businesses, or anywhere edge storage is required. Despite its amazingly small size, the HauteSHOT microNVR delivers a combination of full feature applications including complete IP routing for both wired and wireless networks using HauteSpot Networks high performance HauteRouterOS operating system and an advance platform for video management. Standard configurations include a choice of either a complete MicroSoft Windows or Linux operating systems to host the video management system, a co-resident virtual machine running the HauteRouterOS routing system, a dual core, multi-threading processor running at 2GHz with 2GB of superfast DDR3 RAM, a HD capable DVI/HDMI video adapter with hardware H.264 acceleration, a MIMO wireless interface capable of up to 150Mbps throughput, and a choice of either 500GB moving HDD or 120GB solid state drive. Optional support for up to 6 external USB hard disks for archiving, an additional high performance broadband wireless adapter, GPS location tracking, and 3G/4G wireless adapters. The HauteSHOT microNVR has been tested with up to 16 multi megapixel cameras acting as both a recorder/server and a client display device.

IP camera surveillance of my house.?Hello all, due to the scumbags who keep stealing everything I don’t nail down at night, scaring my wife and children rigid to boot. I have decided to install camera surveillance both inside and out of my home. After much deliberation I have decided to go with six cameras, four Pan/Tilt/Zooms outside, two front and two back, with two discreet domes to go inside above my front and back door pointing in, (for the exit shot). Also I want to include a Digital Video Recorder and real time IP access via my computer & iphone . I have seen a few complete systems for about £350 on ebay but they all seem to be Chinese imports . Could anyone recommend where I could get a descent version of the above system in the UK to install myself??
Thanks in advance
Megapixel, HD forecast, 24/08/2010 The growth and adoption of megapixel and high definition (HD) video surveillance equipment is one of the key trends shaping the video surveillance market towards 2014. According to IMS Research ’s latest report, “The World Market for CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment – 2010 Edition”, by 2014 more than half of all network cameras shipped will be HD or megapixel resolution.
One of the main benefits of network security cameras has been the availability of megapixel (and more recently HD) resolutions, a feature that until recently analogue video surveillance products had been unable to offer. However, recent developments from the HDcctv Alliance, the organisation responsible for developing the high definition over coax standard (based on the industry HD-SDI broadcast standard), could see end-users given a greater choice when specifying megapixel and HD surveillance requirements.
Whilst a high proportion of new, enterprise-class projects are implementing network video security, existing video surveillance installations, which are predominantly analogue, still represent a majority of the installed base. It is this sector of the market which will be most interesting in the coming years; will customers reuse their existing analogue infrastructure and invest in HDcctv, transition to network security cameras, or adopt a hybrid system?
Bosch adds ONVIF compliant dome cameras to its IP Camera 200 Series
August 2010Bosch Security Systems is extending its IP Camera 200 Series with ONVIF (open network video interface forum) compliant compact dome cameras. Compliance with the new ONVIF standard means the series offers full compatibility with other ONVIF surveillance products, providing users with greater freedom in specifying a system and helping them save on future upgrades or migration costs.
