TKH presents newly released traffic camera at Intertraffic

Gouda, The Netherlands

At Intertraffic 2012 trade show in Amsterdam this week, TKH Security Solutions is showing its recently released traffic camera, the BC620WDR alongside its full range of complete and integrated traffic solutions.
This network camera is specifically designed to perform well in outdoor and variable lighting conditions and can connect directly to Cat 5, fibre optic, or coax cabling. It is also embedded with proven traffic management algorithms for detecting incidents locally. This single unit offers traffic authorities everything they need to install an intelligent IP system anywhere.

TKH Security Solutions will demonstrate a total traffic management system at the Intertraffic show. The new Siqura BC620WDR as well as the award-winning Siqura Trafficserver will be configured to Diva, an IP-based video management system (VMS) equipped with Flux, a traffic management tool from AID expert Traficon.

Through Diva and Flux, users can draw up the incidents that the BC620WDRs and Trafficservers need to monitor. Incidents might include anything from pedestrians, stopped vehicles, wrong-way drivers, and lost cargo to queuing, speed drops, and even the presence of smoke. The traffic management software also allows users to specify scenarios that might occur during traffic monitoring, such as various maintenance projects or day and night lighting parameters. Armed with these scenarios, Diva and Flux can discern between actual events and harmless occurrences.

Pressurised versions of the Siqura PTZ analogue and IP cameras are now available. The Siqura pressurised cameras’ airtight protection ensures quality video in the most corrosive environs, such as along motorways, where fine dust can undermine camera availability.

TKH Security Solutions recently released the BC620WDR, the first Siqura IP camera based on an advanced new camera platform that puts entire video analytics systems for automatic incident detection (AID) and traffic data collection (TDC) in stand-alone devices at the edge of the network. Since its image sensor uses an adjustable shutter speed for each pixel, the Siqura BC620WDR provides superior low-light performance as well as wide dynamic range (WDR). With a built-in SFP option, the BC620WDR can connect directly to and stream Ethernet signals over fibre optic, coax, or Cat 5 cabling.

How to minimize EMI impact on mission critical video surveillance

Electromagnetic interference can degrade the total performance of a video surveillance system. Therefore, the EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) of the electronic equipment should not be overlooked when a video surveillance system is applied to environments with high-voltages present, such as power plants, factories, transportation and infrastructure.
In this Detektor Security Academy article, Detektor has employed the expert knowledge of Ethernet product company, Etherwan, in order to explain how both products and surveillance systems should be designed in terms in of EMC in order to negate any problems that may occur.
