  1. Thermal Network Cameras: Performance Considerations For Intelligent Video
    1/4/2012
    Thermal cameras have many advantages, such as allowing users to detect people, objects, and incidents in complete darkness and difficult conditions such as smoke, haze, dust, and light fog. Eliminating the need for flood lights, they reduce light pollution. By Axis Communications
  2. Brigham Young University Enlists Genetec's AutoVu To Assist With Parking Management
    12/2/2011
    For Brigham Young University, parking management initiatives are a security feature, helping to keep campus inhabitants safe. Finding ways to manage such a large volume of vehicles while still providing user-friendly parking facilities is a significant challenge for BYU’s parking enforcement team. By Genetec
  3. City Of Calgary’s Light Rail Transit System Employs Genetec’s Omnicast Video Surveillance Platform
    12/2/2011
    In 1981, the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada opened the first leg of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) line for the city's visitors and residents. Today, when searching for a suitable replacement for the CTrain's video surveillance system, several qualities were paramount.
  4. Arecont Vision Megapixel Cameras Monitor Crowds At Hsing Tian Kong Temple In Taiwan
    11/28/2011
    Hsing Tian Kong Temple in Taipei, Taiwan, is located on a street corner near the center of the country’s capital city, occupying more than 7,000 square meters. The temple's huge number of visitors suggested the need to enhance an existing analog video surveillance system installed at the large facility. Given that the temple is a preserved cultural site, installation of the system had to be simple and as non-invasive as possible to preserve the building’s beautiful architectural design elements.
  5. A New Perspective On Thermal Imaging
    11/8/2011
    Thermal security cameras have been known for nighttime applications under low or zero lighting conditions. When conditions are ideal, thermal cameras allow a person to “see” what the eye cannot, even in complete darkness.
  6. Sanford Expands City-Wide Installation Of Genetec Solution To Manage And Protect Newly Built Public Safety Complex
    9/29/2011
    The city of Sanford, Florida, is located less than 30 miles northeast of Orlando and serves as the seat of Seminole County. It is well over 130 years old and home to a diverse population of just over 53,000.
  7. City Of Aspen, Colorado, Installs Genetec’s AutoVu IP License Plate Recognition System To Monitor Parking
    9/29/2011
    The city of Aspen, Colorado, at an elevation just shy of 8000 feet, is a popular ski and snow destination resort. It draws a large tourist population every year, including a number of world-famous celebrities.
  8. Port Freeport Invests In The Latest IP Video Surveillance Technology
    9/27/2011
    With massive cargo ships coming into the port daily from Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela, and many more, and employing well over 13,000 people, Port Freeport uses video surveillance technology to ensure the safety of its employees as well as to ensure the smooth execution of daily operations. More so, as one of the fastest growing ports on the Gulf Coast, Port Freeport is in constant surveillance of incoming threats from the water perimeter.
  9. CMOS And CCD — Small Differences Along The Way From Light To A Signal
    9/7/2011
    Historically, CCD (charged coupled device) sensors have existed much longer than CMOS sensors, that is to say, for more than 40 years. Due to constant improvement and optimization over the years, CCD sensors today stand for excellent image quality. In 2009, the American scientists Willard Boyle and George E. Smith were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for the invention of the CCD sensor. Originally developed in 1969 for the storage of data, the potential of the charge coupled device as a light sensitive apparatus was soon realized.
  10. Integrated And Networked Physical Security
    9/7/2011
    A traditional security system is composed of a variety of subsystems such as video surveillance, access control and intrusion detection alerts. By themselves, each of these systems is a critical component of a sophisticated security infrastructure. But for the most part, these platforms operate as separate components without the ability to communicate with each other. This inability to share critical security information between devices and platforms leads to missing data, which can result in security hazards and lapses.
