Hikvision Provides 24-Hour Video Surveillance to Hollywood’s Sunset Plaza Hotel

March 29, 2016 – Hikvision, the world’ leading supplier in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products, has partnered with the Sunset Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles to provide a security solution for round-the-clock surveillance. Located on the bustling Sunset Strip, the hotel had a great need for versatile, user-friendly Wireless Security Cameras and recorders that allowed their staff to keep an eye on the premises at all times. A variety of Hikvision models now protect the hotel guests and serve as powerful tools to keep hotel operations running smoothly.

 

The hotel had outgrown their legacy ip cctv system and was hoping to upgrade to cameras that provided broad coverage and high-quality images in a variety of interior and exterior environments. It was also important that the interface for the security system was easy for employees to learn.

 

“We wanted something that we could use from an operational standpoint and from a safety standpoint,” explained Brenda Elias, operations manager for the Sunset Plaza.

 

Ms. Elias turned to Constantin Paul Bunea, the founder and CEO of Darkcad Tec, who had been serving as systems integrator for the hotel for ten years. After considering the options available on the market, he felt confident that Hikvision was the brand that would meet their needs.

 

“I selected Hikvision IP Camera because the quality is very high, third party integration is easy, and the company provides excellent technical support.” Mr. Bunea stated.

 

Darkcad Tec installed over twenty Hikvision IP cameras throughout the hotel, each well suited for a specific function. The DS-2CD2332-I turret, with Hikvision’s patented EXIR infrared technology, is being used in the parking garage, boasting image quality clear enough to make out license plates. A 3 MP fisheye Wireless IP CCTV Camera, the DS-2CD6332FWD-I, allows for a 360° view of the main entrance. Cameras such as the DS-2CD2132F-I dome are being used at other hotel entrances, where HD real-time video is essential. This surveillance system is but one example of Hikvision products providing benefit to hotels all across North America.

 

“The versatility and scalability of Hikvision products make them well-suited for a wide range of vertical markets,” stated Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA and Hikvision Canada. “We are pleased to serve our customers in the hospitality industry as they seek to provide safe and enjoyable experiences for their guests.”

Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey Delta plans regional-jet purchase for up to $2.3 billion: Bloomberg

Delta Air Lines Inc plans to buy larger regional jets with a list value of up to $2.3 billion if it can get its pilots’ union to accept an overhaul of the small-plane fleet,
Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey.

Delta wants the option of adding as many as 50 more planes in the 70- to 76-seat range, Bloomberg reported, citing a memo sent to the pilots.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Away White Alternate Captain Patch NHL Jersey.

Delta may eliminate the smaller planes from its fleet without giving a timeline, the report said. (http://bloom.bg/2cIo5Jt)

Delta declined to comment, while a spokeswoman for the Air Line Pilots
Custom Canadiens Jersey Association’s unit at Delta declined to comment on or confirm the memo.

The larger regional jets reportedly under consideration would burn less fuel per passenger than 50-seat planes and have room for two cabin classes rather than
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Home Red A Patch Hockey Jersey one, giving the Atlanta-based carrier an opportunity to add revenue.

Delta has been planning to phase out the 50-seat jets that it contracts regional
Tomas Plekanec Jersey airlines to fly under its Delta Connection brand.

The pilots’ union has objected to any additional 70- or 76-seat jets being flown by
Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal Delta’s regional affiliate airlines, Bloomberg reported.

Delta, the second-largest U.S. airline by passenger traffic, ordered 75 of Bombardier Inc’s CS100 in April worth an estimated $5.6 billion based on the list price.

Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey India to ratify Paris Agreement climate pact on Oct. 2

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India will ratify the Paris Agreement climate

“There is one work left in the CoP21 (Conference of Parties). Ratification is yet to be done and India too is yet to do it. Today on the birth anniversary of Deen Dayal Upadhyay, I announce that India will ratify the decisions on October 2, the birth anniversary of mahatma Gandhi,” Modi said.

More than 190 nations have agreed on regulating global warming and helping poor nations that face climate catastrophe. The participating countries are expected to come up with plans to limit greenhouse gas emission by the end of the year. They will aim to keep global temperature rise to below 2-degree Celsius this century.

India’s stand on the Paris Agreement has been critical as it alone accounts for 4.5 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions. For the Paris Climate Agreement to come into effect, at least 55 percent of the participating nations accounting for
Tomas Plekanec Jersey 55 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions need to ratify it.

The Indian government took additional time to announce its stand because it wanted to complete some projects. These projects, many of which are heavily relying on usage of fossil fuels, will need amendments when the country complies with the Paris Agreement climate pact guidelines.Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Stitched Away White Ice Hockey Jersey.

Modi’s announcement came as a surprise to many, especially since the Indian government refused to commit to the Paris Agreement earlier this year at G20 summit. But India also risked losing the advantage of first-mover, letting China

How MFS technology increases the efficiency of video systems

In an era of heightened terror threats or fear of organised attacks, the demand for more cctv surveillance camera is becoming increasingly insistent. But is the “more is better” approach really the right one in this case? Rather than just increasing the number of ip security camera, would efforts not be better spent on making the video systems more efficient – with the right technology, that would not even be very difficult.

Whether they be public spaces, airports or business premises: the challenge when it comes to safeguarding large areas and expanses is to be able to obtain a comprehensive overview of the entire surveillance area and at the same time the highest possible resolution of details in even the most distant regions of the image.

Resolution is not everything
Manufacturers of network IP CCTV Security Camera may vaunt larger and larger megapixel numbers: but resolution alone is not everything. In order to be able to provide reliable security over large expanses, it is imperative to be able to make out details and identify individuals not only close to the camera but also in more distant regions. And this is where a very simple physical principle takes effect: a real scene is three-dimensional, but in the outdoor cctv camera image it is only represented in two dimensions. The camera pixels are distributed evenly over the camera sensor, which means that the advertised resolution is also constant for the entire image angle – even though a much higher resolution and pixel density might really be needed for more distant regions in order to deliver the same number of pixels per metre as are available for a region closer to the camera.

In other words: If a camera delivers a high-resolution overview image, this can be used to render sequences of events visible, depending on the lighting conditions at the site and the dynamics of the camera. But this certainly does not mean that the resolution over the entire scene is sufficient to allow incidents to be investigated in an emergency. In such situations, the following condition must also be met: Depending on the requirement, and as appropriate for the image scene and details that are important to recognise, a minimum number of pixels must be present on the object or person in the image. This is referred to as pixels per metre (pix/m) on the object/person. It is not the same as the number of pixels a camera uses (as described in the statement “5 megapixel camera”, for example).

Guideline values have been established in the video industry for pixels per metre: To observe, you need 62 pixel/m, to recognise known individuals you need 125 pixel/m, and 250 pixel/m are needed in order to be able to identify unknown persons – regardless of how far from the IP Cameras the people are.

SND editor interviewed by BBC: Save our CCTV cameras from council cuts

[Note: During the interview, I mispoke and said Bournemouth when I meant to say Brighton. So apologies for that!]

Lincoln Council is looking at the possibility of cutting CCTV services to save £483,000 per year. The Conservative-led council says it needs to save £2.35 million by 2013 which could spell the end of the city’s 133 cameras.

The decision follows a move by nearby North Kesteven Council to switch off an ip cctv system in Sleaford and another four in North Hykeham.

The council will be leading a CCTV review with Lincolnshire police, local businesses and the public, but as part of the debate, BBC Lincolnshire contacted me this morning to ask for my views.

My interview is preceded by a plea from the father of a murdered man to keep the Infrared Security Cameras because of the crucial role that CCTV played in convicting his son’s killers.

Lamar Miller Jersey For Sale Blue Angels flight team told to stop aerial maneuver after crash probe

The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels flight exhibition team has been ordered to stop using the so-called Split-S maneuver during its shows until further notice after an
Lamar Miller Jersey For Sale investigation into a crash that killed a top Marine
Men’s Lamar Miller Houston Texans Nike Elite Alternate Battle Red Football Jersey Corps pilot this summer.

A Navy investigation report released on Thursday found that Captain Jeffrey Kuss performed the maneuver on June 2 in his F/A-18C aircraft during practice at Smyrna, Tennessee, at a lower-than-standard altitude, possibly because of low clouds.

The combat maneuver involves rolling upside down then diving in a half loop until the plane is flying in the opposite direction horizontally.Men’s Lamar Miller Houston Texans Nike Elite Away Liberty White Football Jersey.

Blue Angels operating procedures call for the maneuver to be performed at a
Lamar Miller Football Jersey minimum altitude of 3,500 feet above the ground at a speed between 125 and 135 knots, the report said.

Kuss was no higher than 3,196 feet and was flying at up to 184 knots. Although he radioed that he was throttling out of afterburner during the mishap, he failed to do so, the report said.

“In layman’s terms, he transitioned from the high performance climb to the Split S too low and too fast, and by not deselecting his afterburners during the
Lamar Miller Jersey maneuver, he continued to accelerate,” the report said.Men’s Lamar Miller Houston Texans Nike Game Navy Blue Team Color Football Jersey.

“The net effect of these deviations was that the aircraft was simply too low and too fast to avoid impacting the ground,” it said.

Kuss ejected from his plane but it was too late, the report said.

The investigation concluded the cause of the crash was pilot error, with the weather and pilot fatigue seen as contributing factors. It concluded Kuss was fatigued because he failed to perform some routines he normally would have done out of habit.

Kuss was “universally recognized as one of the most meticulous and professional
Lamar Miller Texans Jersey Blue Angel pilots by his teammates” and had 1,686.5 flight hours with no prior military mishaps or flight violations, the report said.

The commander in charge of the Blue Angels ordered a number of changes to the group’s procedures, including directing that the Split S maneuver no longer be performed in the show until further notice.

The commander also directed that the Blue Angels’ schedule of performances be adjusted in the future “to provide more regular breaks and better flow to allow
Women’s Lamar Miller Houston Texans Nike Elite Away Liberty White Football Jersey rest and regularly assess the team’s performance.”

IQinVision installs HD megapixel IP cameras at University of Miami

IQinVision ,market leader in high-performance HD megapixel IP cameras, today announced the University of Miami, Florida, has installed over 350 IQinVision megapixel cameras throughout its main campus in order to create a safer environment for students, staff, and visitors. The University of Miami is a private research university with more than 15,000 students.

The university had maintained video surveillance for a number of years, but as Jose Ruano, Executive Director of IT Security, explained, “Our challenge was that a university is very de-centralized. We had so many legacy ip cctv system, and we were looking to bring it all together into a unified system that we could manage in a centralized manner.” Campus Police are responsible for monitoring video and investigating any incidents, but as Ruano pointed out this was made very difficult by the many disparate systems.

In order to integrate all the different video systems into a single unified system, Ruano and colleague Steve Weatherly, Senior Security Engineer, knew the university needed to upgrade to IP. “It was much more economical to upgrade our cameras and run them over the IP network than laying coax,” recalled Weatherly. Both Weatherly and Ruano conducted extensive research and identified companies they wanted to visit at the ISC West security tradeshow. “When I first saw a demo of an IQeye megapixel Infrared Security Cameras, I was blown away at the quality of compared to analogue,” said Weatherly. “Ever since then it’s been IQinVision.” In addition to selecting IQeye outdoor cctv camera, University of Miami also chose OnSSI video management software for their upgraded security system.

The university actually has over 400 cameras installed, with approximately 90% of them IQeye HD megapixel cameras. IQeye cameras are installed wherever image quality is critical for identification purposes—parking lots and areas that typically have a high density of students. The University Police also conducted an analysis to identify high crime areas. Cameras were then installed to address pressing needs at the locations identified in the study.
