IP video surveillance

by Mark Rowe

Samsung Techwin Europe and Veracity have jointly launched TRINITY. It’s an IP network video surveillance product that does not require a network video recorder.

The product uses the processing power of Samsung WiseNetIII open platform cameras which enables them to run at the same time multiple onboard edge based applications, including Veracity’s COLDSTORE ‘direct-to-storage’ recording.

The system does not require a server or network recording device and yet supports audio and metadata as well as video, whilst featuring camera-level fail-over and resilience to network interruptions. As a result, the firms say, savings can be achieved on software licences and NVR hardware costs normally incurred when an IP network-based recording system is required. With a COLDSTORE array of up to 120TB consuming just 60 watts, there is also a potential 90 per cent power saving, compared to standard server based storage, it’s claimed. For large video surveillance projects, this provides users with the opportunity to apply for EU funded environmental grants.

Alastair McLeod, Veracity’s Group CEO, pictured, said: “In simple terms, WiseNetIII cameras are now able to write directly to disk. The TRINITY architecture empowers the Samsung WiseNetIII cameras to record directly to COLDSTORE, whilst providing users with the option to retrieve and view the recorded images via our TRINITY Player utility or, more significantly, by any third-party PSIM [physical security information system] or VMS client application that incorporates our easy to implement media SDK.”

COLDSTORE hard disk storage arrays are specified for large scale installations or for projects with long video retention time requirements. This is because of their storage capacity and low power consumption as well as the fact that the product has been designed from the ground up to increase disk reliability, according to the makers. The recent release of COLDSTORE Compact means that TRINITY is also now suitable for systems with lower camera counts, the firms add.

Dan England, Technology Partner Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe, said: “Our technicians have worked very closely with the Veracity team to ensure users can achieve the maximum benefit from TRINITY. Being able to record and store metadata directly to COLDSTORE is particularly important as customers are increasingly specifying applications to run on WiseNetIII cameras that can be used to collect and analyse data via different specialist video analytics solutions.

“This offers operation managers the potential to acquire valuable management information which could assist them in improving efficiency in areas such as process control, health and safety, marketing and human resource management, as well as enhancing the ability of security personnel to react quickly and effectively to any security threat.”
