Crismasecurity partners with Videotec for maximum airport security

Schio, Italy

Crisma Security, a company that specialises in designing security systems for highly critical sites as integrated Navtech Radar with the Ulisse thermal radical range of PTZ thermal cameras manufactured by Videotec, creator of professional video surveillance products.

This combination of advanced technologies aims to offer a unique and flexible solution for optimal management of large-scale critical infrastructures.  The Navtech Radar is an innovative radar device that uses millimetre wave technology, creating a highly automated and reliable system to help protect against intrusion.

The Navtech Radar is able to detect a person in a radius of up to 1000m automatically, both during the day and at night, and in all environmental conditions (rain, fog, snow...). Each radar sensor performs one 360° scan cycle of the monitored area every second. This means that the device is able to precisely map any target objects in the scene that it is surveying (vehicles, people, etc.), their speed and their direction. The sensors can define several parameters with regards the subdivision of the areas to be monitored, with alarm rules for abnormal situations that are customised according to different criteria.

The radar detection is accompanied by the visual surveillance capability of the Ulisse thermal radical, a PTZ thermal camera that offers high functional and mechanical performance and, with a wide field of vision, is capable of capturing images of people and objects even in the dark or during adverse environmental conditions.

The integrated system means that the radar automatically guides the thermal PTZ, and uses software to send the exact coordinates of the target that needs to be followed rapidly and continuously. This provides real-time visual feedback of the detected event.

The interaction between the radar and the PTZ thermal imaging camera is synchronised perfectly. The coordinates given by the radar very quickly guide the PTZ, following the target in a perfect sequence of fast and fluid movements. Constantly sharp images of the scene are made possible thanks to the Ulisse thermal radical’s effective autofocus system, which allows the camera to achieve perfect focus levels quickly.

The integrated system brought together by Crisma Security and Videotec has been tested successfully at an Italian airport where it provided high levels of security while monitoring sensitive areas.

The system provides security managers with quick information on unwanted intrusions, with instant, real-time views of the target’s presence and position in monitored areas. It enables early intervention and ensures total and continuous coverage of external infrastructures.

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.

Cybersecurity –a new buzzword for video surveillance providers

As technology development moves on at an increasing pace the security industry is constantly taking advantage of the progress. The migration from an analogue to a digital technology was a real game changer. Suddenly technology integration has become much easier and cost effective. User friendliness and flexibility seem to no long have any limits.  

Here, and, in the newly published edition of Detektor magazine 02/17, Lennart Alexandrie, gives his views on the cyber threat and how it might affect the security industry.
