LINCOLN, NE, 10-Sep-2016 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — Z3 Technology, LLC, a leading provider of embedded video compression systems, and Sony Electronics Inc., an international leader in image sensors camera technology, are announcing the availability the Z3Cam-4KTM, a 4K H.265 IP camera leveraging Sony’s FCB-ER8300 4K camera. The Z3Cam-4K brings clarity and detail to high movement and low light conditions with optimized 4K technology. This unit captures stunning video with 20x optical zoom with integrated auto focus. The Z3Cam-4K provides crystal clear images for broadcast, industrial, medical, security and corporate applications while adding the ability to broadcast and analyze your video around the world.

The Z3Cam-4K is the first 4K video system capable of encoding and streaming 4K H.265/HEVC video with ONVIF integration for easy camera management. The innovative Z3Cam-4K has multiple options for your IP transmission. The system can output both H.265/HEVC and H.264 video over IP in 4K resolutions. It can also send a simultaneous HD stream. Camera control can take place remotely with VISCA control commands sent over IP to the Z3Cam-4K from a comm port on your PC. Where seeing sharp lines is key, Sony’s 4K noise reduction algorithm provides the highest quality imaging fit for virtual reality imaging and high detail data analytics.

“Sony is privileged to work with Z3 on providing the 4K optics and image capture subsystem integrated into the Z3Cam-4K. With fast auto focus, 20x optical zoom and electronic image stabilization we expect this new camera to be deployed widely in demanding commercial and industrial 4K applications,” said John Monti, Director, Sony Visual Imaging Solutions.

“The Z3Cam-4K camera provides high quality, low bit rate video to be streamed over IP networks at 4K resolutions,” Aaron Caldwell, CEO Z3 Technology said. “In the past the bandwidth requirements for 4K were too high for many of our customers to make the switch to 4K. The Z3Cam-4K solves this dilemma by taking advantage of state of the art H.265 compression technology that uses very low power and low bandwidth. Z3 is excited to be collaborating with Sony to offer the industry this 4K H.265 IP camera solution to allow 4K imaging to be sent around the world with no distance limitations.”

Videofied Alarm System From Stanley For Rapid Response And Reduce False Alarms

Stanley Security Solutions has launched the Videofied® wireless intruder alarm system with integrated video, providing a low cost bridge between intruder alarms and CCTV systems.

Videofied is an event based alarm system featuring PIR intruder detectors with in-built cameras. When the PIR sensor is triggered, the onboard video camera is activated and instantly takes a ten second video clip of whatever has caused the detection. The video is immediately sent to the alarm monitoring station with the alarm signal, allowing the operator to see what has caused the alarm and enabling them to distinguish between a genuine intruder detection and a false alarm event.

Such an innovative design makes for a highly effective intruder alarm system as it identifies crimes in progress leading to a priority response and high apprehension rates, as well as helping to reduce false alarms – essential to guarantee police response.

Videofied is extremely cost-effective to purchase, install and monitor, especially when compared to the cost of most conventional CCTV systems. One of the key reasons for this is that Videofied is a totally wireless system. All aspects of the system, including the control panels and alarm devices, are battery operated (with two years life on a single set of batteries), and the communication back to the monitoring station is via a GPRS link from the panel. This means that a system can be set up in minutes with minimal disruption, installation time and cost.

Videofied incorporates both indoor and outdoor PIR cameras with built in IR illumination for day/night video capability, so is suited to an exceptionally wide range of environments, including temporary and rapid response applications, such as construction sites, vacant properties, utilities and transport infrastructure, where speed and ease of installation are an important consideration. Videofied is also particularly suited to applications where false alarms are costly or where police response is in danger of being withdrawn without a system upgrade.

Videofied includes all of the peripherals that you would expect from a standard alarm system, including conventional PIRs, sirens, door contacts, and smoke detectors. In total up to 24 motion viewers (including PIR cameras) can be integrated with one control panel for a cost-effective system.

Although relatively new to the UK, the Videofied system has been successfully deployed in over 185,000 installations across 35 countries.

Logistics Company Employs Stanley Access Control Solutions

Stanley Security Solutions has completed the installation of an integrated electronic entry system for logistics company Mini Clipper at its new premises in Bedfordshire.

Specialising in the delivery of palletised freight, Mini Clipper employs almost 100 people and operates a substantial fleet of vehicles. As part of an expansion programme, the company recently moved to a new, larger site providing the added opportunity to improve security and allow for a more effective means of monitoring and controlling staff and visitor movements.

A long standing customer of Stanley, Mini Clipper has employed its Time & Attendance solutions for over 15 years. An excellent working relationship has developed over that period, encouraging Mini Clipper to turn to Stanley for its security requirements at the new site, most notably a sophisticated site wide access control system capable of handling both pedestrians and vehicles.

Stanley was able to provide invaluable advice on developing the site from a vehicle entry point of view right from the outset, helping Mini Clipper to efficiently plan the site’s redevelopment.

Stanley has now installed its NT500 access control system integrated with the security gates and video door entry system site wide, as well as connecting to a remote location. The solution has provided Mini Clipper with the ability to control and monitor access to the site with a one fob / badge solution without restricting the flow of vehicles or staff.

The NT500 Access and Alarm Server, manufactured by Stanley, is an expandable controller that provides secure, high speed access. Security is in part attributed to the Secure Socket Communications and a built-in Firewall for ‘data centre grade’ protection. System downtime is negated through the use of Distributed Intelligent Controllers so that even if the main communication lines are lost, the on-site security is maintained at all times.

In addition to the access control, Stanley has also upgraded Mini Clipper’s Time and Attendance solutions system to its latest Astrow system. Astrow is used by Mini Clipper for managing payroll costs, allowing employees to clock remotely via a pc and request holidays, and helping the management team monitor operational costs.

Peter Masters, Managing Director of Mini Clipper, is pleased with the entry system solution at the new site: “We wanted access control throughout the new site and liked the convenience of having it directly linked to the electronic pay role, which Stanley has provided us for years. The access control is used across a large site and has proved to be robust. It keeps the unwanted out and protects the freight within, which our customers like very much.”

Stanley Puts Dynamic Controls Back In Control With Sonitrol® Alarm Verification

Valve manufacturer Dynamic Controls has upgraded its security with Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) and moved to Sonitrol® alarm monitoring.

Dynamic Controls, based in Oldham, is a leading manufacturer of high and low pressure cartridge valves, manifolds, reducing stations and fluid/gas systems for critical, demanding applications, including submarines, aircraft carriers and navy surface ships.

A site manufacturing such critical equipment clearly needs round the clock protection. The existing intruder alarms system had come to the end of its life and Dynamic Controls was dissatisfied with the service it was receiving from its then supplier, as well as the rising costs. Dynamic Controls turned to Stanley CSS for a solution.

Stanley removed the elderly conventional intruder alarm system and replaced it with contemporary Sonitrol Audio Impact technology. When an alarm is triggered, the system immediately alerts Stanley’s ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre and transmits the sounds of the break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated audio sensor. Professional operators on duty around the clock listen silently to determine the nature of the noise and take appropriate action, such as calling the police or resetting the system.

The access control system installed by Stanley CSS at the Dynamic Control’s site is also run through the Sonitrol system for complete integration and ease of use.

Andrew Hill, Facilities Manager at Dynamic Controls, is impressed with both the equipment and the service he has received from Stanley: “the system is brilliant and it’s very simple to use. Stanley’s customer interface is fantastic – all the staff are polite and knowledgeable and are lovely to deal with. It’s nice to be treated as a human being!”

Sonitrol alarm monitoring is available exclusively in the UK from Stanley CSS. For sales information please contact Stanley CSS on 0844 254 0032 or via www.stanleycss.co.uk.

Stanley Steps in to Provide Stearn Electric with Sonitrol Alarm Verification

Following the launch of its first European ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre in the UK, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) has been awarded the Sonitrol alarm monitoring contract for two Stearn Electric distribution warehouses in the South of England.

A national electrical distributor supplying over 10,000 electrical wholesalers and outlets across the UK, Stearn Electric uses Advanced Audio Verification using Sonitrol Audio Impact technology at its Bristol and Leighton Buzzard branches. Having recently obtained exclusivity in the UK on the provision of Sonitrol, Stanley CSS was quick to react when Stearn Electric’s Bristol branch contacted the company to see if they could take over the system from the previous provider.

Stanley CSS put in place a strategy to take over the system rapidly, including sourcing a replacement board for the panel, supplying qualified engineers to undertake the work and programming Stanley’s ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre (PNC) system to receive the Sonitrol signals – all in one visit. Stearn Electric Bristol branch Manager Alan Blackwell is impressed with the service provided: “I have been very pleased with Stanley’s response and the manner in which they carried out the repair and takeover. The alternative would have been to install a new system at considerable expense and disruption, which I did not really want to do.”

In fact, so impressed has Alan been that he has recommended Stanley CSS to other Stearn branches, including Leighton Buzzard which has also appointed Stanley CSS to take over their Sonitrol alarm system shortly.

Sonitrol provides organisations with the ability to verify an alarm event in real time by allowing operators to hear what’s happening on a monitored site. When security alarm systems are triggered, the system immediately alerts Stanley’s PNC and transmits the sounds of the break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated audio sensor. Professional operators on duty around the clock listen silently to determine the nature of the noise and take appropriate action, such as calling the authorities or resetting the system. Such a facility increases apprehension rates as intruders are not alerted and police respond quickly to a verified crime in progress. False alarms can also be quickly identified.

Stanley Takes Over Sonitrol Alarm Verification for Retailer

Having recently obtained exclusivity in the UK on the provision of Sonitrol, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) has announced another significant contract for Sonitrol alarm monitoring, with Thames Cash and Carry Ltd.

An independent wholesaler based in Reading, Berkshire, Thames Cash and Carry serves a large number of customers across the south east of England. Its 30,000 square footage, 30 staff and extensive product lines make it one of the largest independent wholesalers in the area.

Thames Cash and Carry has long enjoyed the added protection that Advanced Audio Verification using Sonitrol Audio Impact technology brings, as owner Mr Singh explains: “with the old system we had lots of false alarms – ten or more over three months, which led to police support being withdrawn. With the Sonitrol system we’ve had no false alarms at all because all of our security alarms are now verified. We didn’t want to change from Sonitrol when the previous provider lost the contract, so we were very pleased for Stanley to take over the system.”

In fact just days after taking over the Sonitrol alarm monitoring contract for Thames Cash and Carry, Stanley CSS was able to react to an incident on site. Audio was received from the wholesaler and identified as intruders. An operator at Stanley’s ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre (PNC) alerted the police who attended the site. The keyholder discovered that one of the doors had been tampered with, suggesting the police may have interrupted a potential break in. Without the Sonitrol alarm monitoring, such a rapid response would not have been possible.

Sonitrol provides organisations with the ability to verify an alarm event in real time by allowing operators to hear what’s happening on a monitored site. When an alarm is triggered, the system immediately alerts Stanley’s PNC and transmits the sounds of the break-in attempt and a code describing the location of the activated audio sensor. Professional operators on duty around the clock listen silently to determine the nature of the noise and take appropriate action, such as calling the police or resetting the system. Such a facility increases apprehension rates as intruders are not alerted and police respond quickly to a verified crime in progress, as is likely to have been the case at Thames Cash and Carry. False alarms can also be quickly identified.

This latest Sonitrol alarm monitoring contract follows on from a number of other successful wins for Stanley CSS in the retail sector, including branches of Stearn Electric.
