At ISC West 2016, IDIS mixes flagship technologies with industry leading HD, 4K, and H.265 product advancement—including a 64-channel 4K, H.265 NVR—revolutionized user experiences; and new, innovative video analytics, multi-casting, and smart failover offerings.



LAS VEGAS, APRIL 6, 2016 – On the first day of the ISC West security tradeshow, global surveillance powerhouse IDIS featured the latest generation of its Total Solution for video surveillance, an end-to-end mix of the company’s core technologies—including its flagship DirectIP™ solution platform; the modular and innovative IDIS Solution Suite VMS, and the end-to-end HD-TVI solution DirectCX—alongside game changing advancements in HD, 4K, and H.265. New offerings such as video analytics, multi-casting, user experience, and smart failover prevention advancements, among others, were also featured. Together and apart, each demonstrated advancements in the power, ease, and utility of IDIS’s world-class, yet affordable, Total Solution.

Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America, and Keith Drummond, Senior Director at IDIS America, marked the one-year anniversary of IDIS America’s debut at ISC West 2015 with the opening of a powerful, information-rich showcase of the enhanced IDIS Total Solution, dedicated to showing exactly how IDIS increases performance while driving down costs in IDIS’s most hands-on series of demonstrations. This showcase of the IDIS Total Solution, honed and advanced over the company’s near-two decades of industry innovation and leadership in the global surveillance marketplace, focused on benefits to systems integrators, installers, and end-users. It also showcased how the IDIS Total Solution is purpose built to meet any surveillance need, of any size—delivering industry-leading quality and feature sets—without sacrificing a key differentiator for IDIS: one of the industry’s lowest total costs of ownership.

Among the technology featured at ISC West booth #18063 is:

IDIS Flagship Technology

IDIS DirectIP, a complete range of cameras, monitors, NVRs, and accessories able to leverage a revolutionary non-server, NVR-based approach to bring unparalleled simplicity, high performance, and affordability together as never before.

IDIS Solution Suite, a highly scalable and flexible VMS, offering a unified user experience across different technology platforms in a modular manner that delivers customized feature sets at an affordable price point.

IDIS DirectCX, the company’s high definition surveillance solution for coaxial cable installations with support for HD-TVI 2.0.

IDIS Advanced Product Technology

• The IDIS Super 4K Total Solution range of cameras, NVRs, and monitors, featuring true, next-generation evolution of surveillance recording, including the world’s highest performing 4K H.265 NVRs like IDIS’s new 64-channel 4K, H.265 DirectIP Full HD recorder, the DR-8364.

• The IDIS 5MP 360-degree Fisheye Camera, with unparalleled dewarping technology on client for e-PTZ, auto-pan functions, and support for varied image layouts, together with camera-side dewarping for DirectIP NVRs.

IDIS Smart UX Controls present operators with an advanced and simple to use user interface, delivering super smooth “rubber band” and “slingshot” PTZ tracking and monitoring that are genuine breakthroughs in the industry. Intuitive visual feedback enables users to easily pan and tilt images at different speeds and in different directions.

New IDIS Features and Benefits

IDIS SmartFailover with 24-Hour SmartSave seamless failover protection and recording without an enterprise-level investment. Should a network disconnection ever occur, IDIS cameras begin recording on-board the SD card. As soon as the camera-to-NVR connection is restored, the NVR resumes recording as the footage from the camera’s SD card automatically transfers to the NVR, leaving no incident unrecorded. A 32GB SD card will record at a pre-configured profile until 50% of the card’s capacity is used, after which the IP camera automatically controls recording profiles to guarantee 24-hours of recording.

IDIS-revolutionized Peer-Assisted Multi-casting offering, DirectShare, taking the headaches and hiccups out of multi-casting and turning it into a distinct advantage, improving performance and efficiency with proprietary multi-casting technology that is more reliable, convenient, and secure than ever before.

• IDIS VA in the Box video analytics, including people counting, heat mapping, and queue management further demonstrates the IDIS commitment to a complete total solution, enabling users’ business opportunities through a marriage of state-of-the art surveillance technology and increased business intelligence through analytics.

“This is IDIS’s most comprehensive offering yet, further advancing what was already a true end-to-end, single-source surveillance solution,” noted Drummond, “and we are thrilled to be demonstrating it here at ISC West. The advancements in technology and robust new or improved feature sets continue to definitively set IDIS apart from the competition in terms of total quality, total offerings, and total cost of ownership.

“The IDIS Total Solution is uniquely flexible, scalable, and modular,” Drummond continued. “Easily scaled and configured for maximum cost-effectiveness in meeting the many surveillance needs of specific vertical markets, including retail, gaming, banking, and commercial, and installations ranging from single-site to multi-site enterprise deployments.”

Additionally, Drummond offered details of IDIS America’s rapidly growing Partner and Training and Certification programs, first announced in September at the ASIS security expo, and shared customer success stories from the year since the IDIS brand debuted in the Americas at ISC West 2015.

Solution providers in Middle East address budget concerns and add value

Solution providers in Middle East address budget concerns and add valueMar 29 , 2016Hits : 2470

With oil prices on the decline, security users in the Middle East (ME) are now looking for better deals on high-quality security and surveillance equipment. Global solution providers are doing their best to meet the requirements of user in the ME by addressing their budget concerns and providing more added-value services.

With oil prices on the decline, security users in the Middle East (ME) are now looking for better deals on high-quality security and surveillance equipment. Global solution providers are doing their best to meet the requirements of user in the ME by addressing their budget concerns and providing more added-value services.


Addressing the money issue
In the past, sufficient budget made customers in the ME rather tech-savvy, with a high acceptance of new technologies. Now, due to the difficult economic situation, the decision-making process is taking a bit longer as budget becomes more of an issue.

Companies like Grundig have quickly responded to this change of customer behavior. “This year, we started with a new product line, Connect, which covers the products in entry level. Connect is next to our Professional and Top product line to optimize our portfolio,” said Yalcin Demirak, Area Sales Manager of Middle East at Grundig. “For the time being, it is important for the end user to reduce their costs by mixing up Connect, Professional, and Top. Connect is still very high quality with a 3-year warranty, but we have reduced some special features to fulfill the budget expectations of the end user.”

partnerships UAE Middle east
Partnerships help security providers add more value
to their offerings.
Khwaja Saifuddin, Senior Sales Director for Middle East, Africa, Turkey & South Asia at WD said, “We have an ongoing partnership with Milestone as per which the Milestone Arcus surveillance software is available on WD’s My Cloud Business series and My Cloud Expert series NAS systems. WD offers them a fully configured, pre-loaded solution which comes with a license of up to eight cameras. So users just need to buy the cameras, hook it up, and then they can use it as their NAS, which is saving on users’ surveillance fees.”

To respond to the market, IDIS also emphasized its simplicity and plug-and-play features for their video surveillance systems.

“Last year, we opened our Middle Eastern office in Dubai, Silicon Oasis,” said Albert Ryu, President and COO of IDIS. “We have built up the business very fast, since we entered the market two years ago. At this year’s Intersec we announced the successful roll out of DirectIP at Majmaah University in Saudi Arabia. The 336-camera project was installed and handed over to the customer within three days, demonstrating our plug-and-play capability.”

Value-added services and solutions catering to SIs
Facing price concern challenges from end users, solution providers and major systems integrators (SIs) have also strengthened what they can offer to the customers.

 

For solution providers, it is very important to educate and communicate with consultants and specifiers, and then to the end customers.
The security business is strongly built upon people’s connections and relationships, especially in this region. For solution providers, it is very important to educate and communicate with consultants and specifiers, and then to the end customers. In addition, most of the local physical security SIs lack some software capabilities to integrate different systems together. So, the high level of reliance on turn-key solutions from suppliers is preferred by the SIs.

Many major solution providers also explained how they transformed and added more value to their solutions and local services, such as pre-sales and post-sales support for projects, and SIs to provide more confidence to their customers on their overall reliability and performance of the solutions.

According to Hanno Vogels, VP of Sales for Eastern Europe, Middle East, and DACH at Bosch Security Systems, “In this Middle East region, we are very active with our Engineered Solution Business. Here we provide sustained support to SIs in large and complex projects, starting from planning and preparation of tenders to implementation. This often involves complex integration tasks in sensitive projects in the government and security sectors.”
sustained support UAE Middle East
More security players are offering support before,
during, and after the sale  for more added value.
Vogels named the Dubai International Airport as an example of this support. “At the moment, Dubai airport is conducting a tender for the next terminal, which needs to be integrated in the existing security system. As this task is quite complex, we support the SIs at any stage of the project, like executing (i.e., a qualified onsite survey at the beginning of a project and factory acceptance test to prove the solution) Dubai airport will have five terminals and all are done by different SIs. We as Bosch are taking care that the entire integration runs smoothly — that is what we call the Engineered Solution Business.”

G4S has also followed this same concept. Mark Horton, Regional Sales Director of Middle East at G4S said their differentiator is the ability to combine manpower, technology, and process. Its corporate strategy is to strengthen its value-engineered solutions to the market place demonstrating the added value whilst reducing operational risk. They balance the customers’ operational requirements together with the available budget to find some common ground in providing the best risk mitigation at a lower cost, especially by integrating a number of systems together to reduce the overall cost of ownership. The company exhibited market-leading, third-party drone detection, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) solutions, access control, video surveillance, and turnstiles.

Wael Abdallah, GM of NIT also shared, “NIT is considered to be a value-added distributor to top-tier vendors such as Axis, Milestone, Promise, Pivot3, Firetide, Raytech, and many more. This is further delivered to our clients by offering solutions based on multiple products such as technical support with consultancy for design, configuration, and training that empowers them to extend that knowledge and proficiency to their end users.”
