Vivotek fisheye camera collaborates with world-leading brands

Taipei, Taiwan

Following the recognition from the Taipei Computer Association as the winner of Outstanding IT Applications/Products Award in 2011, the Vivotek FE8171V once again has received the honour of Taiwan Excellence Symbol Award from Taiwan's Bureau of Foreign Trade this year.
The award-winning FE8171V is the first and foremost fisheye camera from Vivotek. Equipped with a 3.1 megapixel sensor and a fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount), the FE8171V conveniently eliminates blind spots and provides a field of view 8x wider than a standard VGA camera. With cutting-edge image processing, hemispherical images captured from the FE8171V can be converted into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. Users can also utilise the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to zoom in and focus on a region of interest in both panoramic and regional viewing modes..

Following Wavestore, four other industry leaders, Axxonsoft, Exacq, Milestone and Synology, have collaborated with Vivotek to design and implement a robust and complete surveillance solution. Axxonsoft is a leading software developer that combines IP-based physical security management and intelligent video surveillance. Exacq Technologies is a leading developer of open architecture, scalable video management system (VMS) solutions for security and surveillance applications. Milestone Systems is a leading provider of open platform IP video management software. Synology is a growing company dedicated to developing high-performance network attached storage (NAS) products.

"The FE8171V is one of the most celebrated models of our Supreme series. We are confident that security specialists and end-users can benefit tremendously from our recent collaboration with other industry players, particularly our Solution Integration Alliance (SIA) Program partners," said William Ku, Director of Brand Business Division at Vivotek.

Vivotek SIA Program assists partners in tailoring and integrating Vivotek‘s network cameras and video servers to fit their clients‘ needs by providing technical support, software development kits (SDK) and application components.

"It has been a great pleasure working with such prestigious software companies; together we make the world a safer place," William added.

How to deliver adequate power to security devices in industrial sites

With security found in more and more industrial settings, advanced and heavy-duty network devices are needed on the edge to make implementations effective. Amid this trend, the first major challenge is to deliver enough power to these devices. Increasingly, traditional PoE standards, IEEE 802.3af/at that deliver 15.4W and 30W of power, are proving insufficient in this regard. A hardened 60W PoE switch, on the other hand, can better the power supply needs of industrial users.

How will Brexit affect the security industry?

As the United Kingdom starts to follow through with the necessary steps to leave the European Union (EU), there could be a number of consequences that filter through to security industry stakeholders. In theory, according to Jim Dearing of IHS Markit who has taken a look at the potential impact, in the short-term the market outlook for 2016 and 2017 should be relatively unaffected.

The U.K. has yet to activate Article 50, which instigates the formal procedure to leave the EU. Only the U.K. Prime Minister can invoke Article 50 to begin the negotiation process, which is expected to take around two years to complete.
