Dedicated Micros – part of AD Group – won the Integrated Security Product of the Year category at the IFSEC 2010 Security Industry Awards for its Closed IP TV system, a plug and play IP video product solution which brings all the physical security of a traditional CCTV system to the IP environment, DM say.

Closed IP TV integrates enhanced layer 2/3 switching technology, with self-configuration software. This has the potential to create secure, self-configuring video over IP networks where from an installation point of view no prior knowledge of IP network configuration and security is required.

In practice, through Closed IP TV, IP cameras are automatically identified and configured by the server or NVR (Network Video Recorder) as a point-to-point relationship. This means that each camera is identified by the socket it is connected to just like an analogue system. The private network of video over IP created by Closed IP TV is immune from outside hacking attack, providing reassurance to security managers, as it sets-up an exclusive relationship between the IP addresses of the camera and server products and the associated layer 2/3 switch.

Said Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "We are delighted to have received a Security Industry Award for our Closed IP TV system which, we believe, signifies a quantum leap in the security and ease of use of video over IP solutions. Through Closed IP TV, once all products are connected together, the system is completely deterministic configuring itself and assigning IP addresses automatically as required. Crucially, as each camera is assigned a specific network port it cannot be hacked or intercepted – a potential weakness with other approaches – as the cameras are all locked down.”

The final results of the IFSEC 2010 Security Industry Awards were announced at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on the evening of Monday 10 May.

Closed IP TV, including Dedicated Micros’ Layer3 enhanced CCTV switch was on show on the Dedicated Micros’ stand during IFSEC.
