Postponed Election 70 Stalled 2012 in Malaysia The pending election put many projects on hold, making 2012 a flat year in Malaysia. Despite improvements, the IP infrastructure is still slow for physical and electronic security. With the recently announced 2013 budget highlighting efforts to lower crime rate, a steep growth might be expected in 2013.

The security market has been through many changes brought about by new technologies, IP in particular, the impulse of emerging economics, such as the BRIC countries — Brazil, Russia, India and China — and some negative impact from the global recession. The world security industry, in turn, restructured to meet these challenges and new opportunities. “Both the middle strata and small companies have increased the size of the market and their share. The minnows are taking on the sharks and winning, both through the development of leading edge products and growth through acquisition and alliances,” said Allan McHale, Director of Memoori Business Intelligence, in his latest 2012 annual report. The industry is consolidating to provide more advanced and user-centric solutions for the market, which “transforms the security industry from a cost center to a cash generator,” added McHale. In the Security 50 Industry Reports, we discovered that it is the “security companies that are able to successfully adapt to these changes with continued innovation that will survive. However, it will not be a one-approach-fits-all solution, as companies differ in size and market positioning. Some companies have launched affordable solutions in face of the global belt-tightening, while others have launched their own brands or diversified product lines.” In this competitive market, the key to survival is still differentiation, which applies to all the industries, regardless of their regions. In other words, that means the importance of “marketing” and “branding” is increased for the security companies. The way the companies communicate to the customers and the capability to swiftly deliver the right solutions for users should be strengthened, if the companies are to have a competitive edge.

Product Trends for 2013 a&s examines the latest video surveillance and access control solutions in 2012, which hold great potential in 2013. BY JILL LAI

Video Surveillance Multi-megapixel

2012 was a fruitful year for multimegapixel technology providers. In 2013, the market for high-resolution image quality keeps getting stronger. With the market becoming more saturated, there will be a price competition in the 1- to 3-megapixel camera segment. One such vendor is Arecont Vision, which launched an affordable 1.3-megapixel camera for value-conscious buyers. “Certain buyers have certain financial requirements. So we provide them this cost-effective solution, but which still is a megapixel camera. We are expanding our product portfolios in megapixel solutions,” said Becky Zhou, VP of Sales at Arecont Vision, APAC. Other providers, such as Mobotix, are focused on developing cameras with megapixel counts above 3 megapixels to differentiate their product offerings. Some early adopters of multimegapixel technology are confident of its potential for casinos, retails, schools 24 22

NOV / DEC 2012

and commercial buildings in the U.S. “These industries are adopting more high-definition cameras because image detail is critical to their business operations. For casinos being able to read cards and chips gives them the ability to find card cheats or dishonest dealers,” said Keith Marett, VP of Marketing and Communications at Avigilon. “Retail stores can’t depend on low-resolution cameras pointed at a fixed cash register to capture the transaction any longer, as mobile point of sales terminals are becoming more popular.” “The education market was one of the first to realize the advantages of megapixel technologies as the security and safety of schools for both secondary and higher education is a priority,” said Steve Gorski, GM, Americas, Mobotix. “IP-based surveillance systems offer far more benefits than proprietary systems, such as remote access, video analytics, higher image quality and easily scalable systems, for example and the overall return-on-investment is much

greater.” I Q i n Vi s i o n p ro d u c e s u n i q u e varifocal lens for a mini dome camera with up to 2-megapixel resolution, which is targeted for health care, government and education sector. IQinVision provides a five-year warranty on all its entire line of dome cameras, which remains a rarity in the security industry. High-resolution technology is a natural fit for LPR/ANPR applications due to the sufficient amount of pixel density for better analytics. However, the 20- to 400-megapixel or gigapixel cameras are mostly used for niche and high-end applications. They are combined with panoramic viewing, for wide-area monitoring in border control or seaports. Smart Appliances

All-in-one appliances make networking third-party products much easier. The highly fragmented nature of security products makes configuration and integration the biggest headache for system


integrators as they are dealing with different hardware and software. Jeff Whitney, VP of Marketing and Business, Intransa, said, “Intransa’s clients just need to determine their configuration needs online or with a phone call. Then, Intransa will configure the NVR/server according to our clients’ cameras and VMS. Then, when the appliance goes to our clients, it is ready to use right away.” “Our NVR will send notification of hard-drive failure to customers,” Whitney said. “System integrators usually won’t check their systems regularly. As soon as the system has problems, they won’t take the action immediately. So we leverage our technologies to ensure the health of the entire video surveillance system.” Smart appliances provide the ease of use necessary for SMB applications. Access control, IP video and intrusion detection are combined in compact and scalable solutions to simplify and streamline security procedures. A Tyco solution supports remote monitoring, management and control over mobile devices, which is ideal for SMB owners. Thermal cameras with Video

Analytics

Thermal cameras enable constant surveillance, making them a long-term staple for critical environments but now also for commercial applications. “Recent advances in

thermal camera image processing have expanded their traditional role as night vision cameras to provide 24-hour outdoor security,” said John Romanowich, President and CEO, SightLogix. An important development for thermal cameras is thermal WDR, which produces clear video despite challenging imaging conditions, such as when the camera is aimed toward the rising or setting sun. Other imaging challenges are when very hot objects enter the scene such as a fire, or very hot exhaust from a vehicle engine. Foreground and background image detail remain clear with FLIR WDR thermal cameras, which improve the probability of intrusion detection, and enhances the performance of video analytics. Thermal cameras combined with video analytics enhance situational awareness, for wide-range detection applications, such as ports and maritime applications. “SightLogix systems can detect intruders despite background water movement or reflections, making them a uniquely capable solution for waterside environments,” Romanowich said. Thermal cameras are deployed for critical infrastructure. In the U.S., government projects are coming back online, albeit fewer than in previous years. “One rapidly growing vertical market in North America is the electric power distribution

sector,” said Bill Klink, VP, Security and Surveillance of Commercial Systems for Flir Systems. “The Electric Power Grid is considered critical infrastructure. Therefore, many power companies are using thermal cameras for intrusion detection on the perimeters of their electric power substations and power distribution facilities. Government and industry regulations are fueling the growth of this vertical market.” Klink said commercial market segments are also going to deploy more thermal cameras in the near future. “Over the past three years, many new commercial market segments have adopted the use of thermal security cameras for perimeter intrusion detection, including data centers and municipalities for citywide surveillance,” he said. New Faces of VMS

VMS has become much more standardized — “openness” is a standard feature for many VMS products. Future innovation for VMS will be in mobility, simple and Intuitive user interface, and PSIM-like features to enhance situational awareness, found IHS (formerly IMS Research) in its 2012 “World Market for CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment” report. Milestone maintained its presence in the upper market tier and continues to expand to the SMB sector. “Milestone launched three user interfaces for the Web, PC and mobile devices — for advanced-to-simplified surveillance needs,” said Lawrence de Guzman, Director of Global Sales Operations at Milestone Systems. “Our entry-level VMS manages up to 26 surveillance cameras, and supports a new add-on feature, video push.

allows one to extend mobile capabilities and use a mobile device as a video evidence collector. This feature enables one to push live video from a device's camera directly into the system giving immediate awareness of incidents no matter where they occur.” Avigilon’s latest VMS offering united ideas from IT, Web design and video gaming. Meanwhile, taking inspiration from companies with server farms like Amazon, Google and Facebook, its VMS provides crash-proof enterprise server management. This enables all servers to operate as one unit, so there is no single point of failure. “Two key markets for 3VR in North America are retail and banking. These verticals tend to want a 'black box' solution with the software pre-configured on the hardware, such as a VMS integrated into an NVR or HVR,” said Brian Lane, Director of Product Marketing at 3VR. "But, as we expand into other markets, customers tend to want more control over their hardware and the ability to expand the system and grow as needed. Therefore, we are releasing our VMS on COTS hardware beginning in early 2013 to allow more options for our customers. Whether a customer purchases a 3VR VMS with a 3VR NVR or to be installed on their own hardware, we offer analytics such as Facial Surveillance, LPR/ANPR, and

Demographics. The latter provides age and gender information of customers and can be integrated with PoS systems to provide valuable business intelligence." Analysts estimate that by 2013, more than 50 percent of all video surveillance deployments will be managed by the IT department on the IP network to support the deluge of bandwidth-heavy video data. Cisco introduced its latest IP video surveillance solution to help IT and security teams to implement large-scale video deployments. “As IT departments are tasked with dealing with increasingly large amounts of data — particularly video — the ease of migration of video surveillance to IP continues to accelerate,” said Lindsay Hiebert, Senior Manager, Solutions Marketing of Emerging Technologies at Cisco Systems. “Leveraging Cisco’s strong network base and know-how, this platform can easily manage more than 10,000 cameras with video recording by using Cisco's end-to-end network video surveillance technologies, to manage and optimize bandwidth across network switches, routers, applications and endpoints.” Genetec, one of the leading VMS providers, has the latest advances in its unified security platform, which blends LPR/ANPR, video surveillance and access control into one platform. Genetec's LPR/ANPR offering is a complete solution with

hardware and software for the police sector and parking enforcement. “We have many clients in the police sector. They require more technology for further law enforcement and investigation. With this solution, police can easily recognize the license plates of criminals and illegally parked vehicles. With the back-office management capabilities of the system, in-vehicle users are able to download all the latest hotlists and updates, providing the forensic information and evidence for later investigation to find the suspects,” said Chris Yigit, Product Manager at Genetec. Honeywell’s latest enterpriselevel VMS incorporates new features, such as support for wireless readers, new compliance reporting functions, and Web-based alarm and event management capabilities. “Optimizing business by using integrated systems is the new reality for most enterprise-level organizations,” said Vince Lupe, Honeywell’s Enterprise Segment marketing leader. PSIM

With the standardization of security and the growing need for multinational management, PSIM has good penetration for high-end projects incorporating IT network systems. Proximex is now the first PSIM vendor to support and adhere to the new Area Control Management standards specification, created by the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) for companies to effectively integrate multiple physical security systems. “Supporting these new specifications will allow Proximex to quickly and easily integrate with other access control, intrusion and video system vendors that also support these specifications,” said Larry Lien, VP of

Health Care

Sector Provides Shot in the Arm to Electronic Security Providers

Health care facilities worldwide, particularly those in North America followed by developed nations in Europe, are moving fast to improve patient care while simultaneously reducing cost. To achieve these aims, hospital managements are turning to electronic medical records and telemedicine. By THE EDITORIAL TEAM

T

he health care sector poses unique challenges, said John Davies, Managing Director, TDSi. “After all, you have to provide security while, at the same time, guaranteeing access to patients and family members. You simply cannot go over the top in locking things down,” said Davies. It becomes a matter of security vs. freedom. TDSi exports 50 percent of its production, mostly to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and China with the rest being sold in the U.K. domestic market. "North America," said Davies, "is a very competitive market." Davies estimates that the Americas account for 50 percent of the global market for electronic security products and systems sold to the health care sector. This is followed by Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) with 30 percent, East Asia with 20 percent, and the rest of Asia with 10 percent. That said, while EMEA is growing 4 percent and the Americas around 6 percent, growth in East Asia has been increasing at compound rates of 10 percent. “In the next three years,” said Davies, “Asia is going to start to outstrip the other markets in terms of size.”

Looking at the product mix, Davies estimates that, for a US$5 million project for a 500-bed hospital, 30 percent would be spent on CCTVs, 30 percent on fire detection systems and alarms, 20 percent on access control, of which half or 10 percent of the total would be for biometrics, and 20 percent for systems integration. The latter might include building a n d re c o rd s m a i n t e n a n c e a n d management. In terms of access control alone, the market for the health care sector, said Davies, is about $200 million per

year and he expects this to grow to $300 million by 2016. Extrapolating his figures for total global electronic security sales to the health care sector, one arrives at around $1 billion per year. That could be even higher. Defining the health care sector, particularly in terms of market research statistics is somewhat problematic. “After all,” said one industry executive, “the health care sector includes not only hospitals but also clinics and private medical and dental practices.” Confusing the issue, he said, is the fact that health care clinics are generally small premises but with unique electronic security requirements. “Frequently, ...health care clinics sales of electronic are generally small premises security to but with unique electronic small and security requirements. mediums i z e d players are listed under retail sales,” he explained.

to keep greater security and control over patient records.

Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances rule was issued by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as an amendment to the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, commonly known as the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). According to the rule, doctors or pharmacists writing prescriptions must authenticate two of the following: something they know (a knowledge factor) with something they have (a hard token stored separately from the computer being accessed), and something they are (biometric information). “For increased security, less-complicated management and ease of doctor and pharmacist use,” said Scarfo, “most health care organizations prefer that one of the authentication factors be biometric.” Meanwhile, secure user access to

medical equipment and supplies is an ever increasing priority for hospitals. “Maintaining adequate control and an effective audit trail,” said Scarfo, “is both a cost-saving and compliance issue. Biometrics authentication and identification is an ideal solution to both problems.” All of this is music to the ears of biometric products and systems manufacturers. One forecast of next generation biometric technologies, for example, puts the annual global market at $14 billion by 2017. That is a compound annual growth rate of nearly 20 percent. As expected, North America is the largest market and source of the strongest growth. The current global market for next generation or newly adopted biometrics, said one industry professional, is $6 billion dollars annually. That would break down to roughly $2 billion to $3 billion in sales in the States alone. With 5,000 major hospitals, one could imagine health care sector spendings of $500 million per year.

Sales in China No Longer Anemic

Estimates are that China has 260 million people suffering from cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases, and the money is there to support investment. Some 95 percent of Chinese had governmentprovided health insurance in 2011, and the medical services market is growing 18 percent annually. With white-hot rates like these, Deloitte China predicts that the market will be worth $500 billion in 2015. Given the amount of money sloshing around the sector, electronic security providers will definitely find a shot in the arm. In fact, as of last year, China had

3.7 million hospital beds, up 54 percent from 2005. Today, 12 percent of h o s p i t a l b e d s a re in facilities run by private corporations. Government targets could generate 400,000 new private hospital beds per year with annual revenue from private hospitals in China reaching $377 billion by 2015. The increase in hospitals is increasing demand for medical gear, and with this, electronic security equipment and systems.

Emerging Markets Posting Healthy Growth

Davies sees the Middle East and Africa as rising new markets. “There has been a lot of growth in the health care market for electronic security," said Davies. "Not only in East Asia but also the Middle East and, very soon, we believe in parts of West and East Africa. We have been getting a lot of work in Nigeria, Angola, Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya." While most projects still do not directly involve the health care sector, but critical infrastructure and financial services, Davies is confident t h a t A f r i c a w i l l s o o n p re s e n t attractive markets. He attributes Africa’s expanding relevance to maturing politics and improved democracy and governance. “As these countries’ political systems mature,” he said, “economies there have been growing 5 percent to 7 percent, and given the lack of indigenous manufacturing capabilities, players there are turning to companies such as ours.”

Another key market has been Saudi Arabia, where hospitals are being built “left, right and center,” said Davies. Not all growth, however, happens for the same reasons. In North America, federal mandates requiring health care providers to secure sensitive patient information is driving much of the momentum. Part of the impetus for doing so is fear of lawsuits.

The Positive Side of Too Many Lawyers

“Electronic security players,” said one industry professional with a wry laugh, “really need to thank the high number of lawyers in the U.S. The threat of legal challenges has really forced large hospitals in particular to establish much greater security and control over patient records. Doctor handwriting has long been a source of jokes in the U.S., but no more,” he said. “It is absolutely essential that other health care professionals, including other doctors, nurses, orderlies and, most definitely, pharmacists, understand exactly and immediately the type of medical service required.” In the U.S., another major impetus is the federal government goal envisioning citizens having secure electronic medical records by 2014.

Some SDI, Sir ? Within two years, HD-SDI has established substantial awareness in the marketplace, as tangible products materialize from an earlier TV transmission concept. Market penetration, on the other hand, has been less than stellar, due to component/ system, pricing and deliverability issues. Is 2012 really the year of HD-SDI? In the first article of this two-part feature, a&s explores frond-end SDI devices, cameras, and looks into current advances and hurdles and opportunities ahead. By a&s China

D video surveillance is an unstoppable, irreversible trend. Indeed, it is one of the few driving forces behind growth in the global security market today, according to market research. Previously, the only means to get HD surveillance footage was via megapixel cameras and IP-based networks. Although they gave rise to new contenders and business

opportunities, traditional installers have been struggling with the lack of networking and IT know-how. HD-SDI came as a boon for “the rest of us.� With characteristics similar to analog CCTV, HD-SDI provides an alternative to IP-based video surveillance. However, other than a select few subcontracted installations in China and Korea, HD-SDI currently does not have any

large-scale applications to illustrate extended usability and manageability. Most players are still focusing their energy on stabilizing overall system performance, bringing down cost and educating the market, wedging their way onto the HD video surveillance arena. No one has a crystal ball, and it is difficult to say with certainty what will happen in a few more years, but


it would certainly be wise to evaluate the technology and form an objective opinion.

Negligible Latency

Latency has always been the Achilles’ heel for IP-based video surveillance. A key advantage of HD-SDI is its real-time delivery of every frame. Of course, this is a priority

that differs in each market. For example, Chinese end users have displayed extremely high interest in HD-SDI, although they may not full understand the technology yet. "HD-SDI has a bright future in China, since some vertical markets place higher value on its low latency. This is different than other regions, where latency in video surveillance is acceptable," said Wan Yun Feng,

22

NOV / DEC 2012

Project Manager, Winhi. However, latency still exists for HD-SDI, contrary to what many claim, said Zou Yu Fan, Solution Manager, Axis Communications. "It is simply relatively less noticeable. As IP-based video surveillance continues to improve at a rapid pace, latency in HD network cameras is also becoming shorter and shorter, to the point that it is now barely

noticeable." Latency is no longer a big d e a l - b re a k e r f o r H D n e t w o r k cameras, Zou continued. "Compared to other technical advantages of IP-based video surveillance, latency becomes a non-issue. In contrast, HD-SDI has limited transmission distance; remote surveillance still needs to be accomplished via IP networks, which introduces additional latency." Zhou Sheng Qiang, GM of Video Surveillance at Keda Technology, commented on HD-SDI's low latency characteristic as well. "This supposed advantage of HD-SDI's low latency over IP-based video surveillance is very small. Latency in HD network cameras is already barely noticeable, so this particular advantage over IP-based video surveillance is really not a big issue at all. In larger installations, images come from wide variety of sources, and are delivered to the video wall chiefly via IP networks. HD-SDI is more a 'last mile' solution; video still runs through the networks in real-world s e t t i n g s , w h i c h s t i l l re q u i re s compression. The small advantage of having low latency is not a big deal."

No Compression‌Good?

HD-SDI contenders have also touted zero image compression as a key winning point over their IP-based counterparts. Raw data is indeed delicious, just like how fresh vegies and sushi are infinitely tastier than lesser, processed foods. H o w e v e r, n e t w o r k c a m e r a manufacturers say the lossless video is merely useful when viewing in real time, and that storage still requires the images to be compressed via HD encoders or DVRs. Furthermore, video analytics is

â–˛ Uncompressed video can be as delicous as fresh fruits; in some applications, it may be essential.

based on the analysis of pixels. The data still needs to be digitized and compressed for it to be processed by the analytics engine. Ultimately, the images will still be compressed. One problem that arises is that pressure is placed on back-end devices to process all the data from every camera, added Poseidon Technology's Zeng Chun Wei. "Back-end storage and processing are HD-SDI's weaknesses." Although lossless video sounds like a sweet deal, there are some "gotchas" to be aware of. More efficient back-end storage and processing, as well as video analytics, are common issues that HD-SDI manufacturers must resolve in the near future.

Lack of Standardization

Standardization is a deciding factor for a product to be widely adopted. Although it may be harsh to ask a new ecosystem to immediately produce universally usable standards, it is nonetheless a problem HD-SDI must resolve. It is not just a matter of standard-

izing cameras, Zou said. "First on the list is cabling. Although HD-SDI can utilize existing coaxial cables, not any cable can transmit high-quality images. A certain quality must be met for both the cables and the installation of them. Next, we can look at the TV wall; even connectors to the displays are not necessarily compatible with HD-SDI. Interoperability between devices made by different manufacturers, such as HD-SDI encoders and DVRs, still has problems. Multiple points of failure from the front end to back result in instability of the system." The quest for universal standards is still ongoing. In the mean time, end users and SIs will prefer more stable and mature solutions. HD-SDI will need to catch up in the standardization space and manufacturers roll out complete solutions, from front end to back, to become a true alternative in the HD arena.

Chips: Not Competitive

The aforementioned points are why HD IP-based video surveillance manufacturers doubt HD-SDI will


Product Exploration

become a competing faction in the market. However some chipmakers, such as Ambarella, are leaning toward HD-SDI products. Asked whether H D - S D I w i l l a ff e c t l a rg e c h i p vendors' attitude toward IP, Zou said, "Network cameras contain chips that digitize, process and compress images, but that does not mean HD-SDI is more competitive because it has no need for these chips." Another way of looking at it, Zou continued, is that "Video processing chips are a plus for network cameras, since it means that the camera is more intelligent and is capable of much more than just capturing video. The feats it can accomplish will only increase as time goes on."

Niche Applications

When HD-SDI advocates claimed the dawn of a "zero latency, zero compression" age for video surveillance, users frustrated with latency in IP-based systems sighed with relief as they hoped HD-SDI could solve all the problems they faced. Settings where low latency is critical and have short distances and few locations to cover do indeed see HD-SDI making much more sense than IP-based systems. Applications like gaming, traffic monitoring, financial institutes, operating tables and safe city initiatives all see the value in HD-SDI and will benefit from its pros. On the other hand, in a trend of globalization, digitization and connectivity, HD network cameras are a more logical direction to move in. Although HD-SDI solves the HD equation for analog video surveillance, the fact that it is still

â–˛ Low latency is critical for traffic monitoring, where just a few frames can render the data useful or useless.

a closed system results in complex cabling and mundane installation. Furthermore, HD-SDI maxes out at 2 megapixels or 1,080p. These are both limitations that hinder its practicality in the big wave of digitization and increased connectivity. Regarding other limitations, Zeng said, "HD-SDI features much better image quality over traditional analog systems, but it also inherits the same downsides. “One issue is scalability. HD-SDI uses DVRs, which limit the front-end devices.� "Another is cost. Although it allows the reuse of existing cables, additional cash has to be coughed up to replace front-end devices,

optical transceivers and back-end recorders. At the moment, these are still fairly expensive." HD-SDI does indeed have its place in the market, but it will not become a strong competitor to IP-based video surveillance; HD IP-based video allows better integration, interoperability and flexibility, according to Zeng. "IP-based video surveillance will represent a large portion of the customer base, while HD-SDI will remain a better option for niche markets. If HD-SDI cannot achieve economy of scale, HD via IP will still make more sense in most settings."

2012 security 50

With Security 50 companies eking out an average profit growth of 9.8 percent, the disappointing statistics reflect a simple yet grim truth — supply outstripped demand. While weaker players were eliminated, prevailing companies prospered by demonstrating efficiency, productivity and innovation. Many corporations also leveraged their resources to acquire other companies, quickly gaining expertise and boosting their international presence. Despite the economic slowdown, a few companies experienced double-digit growth. Overall, 2011 was an eventful year, as companies sought to grow organically or through M&A.

Among the many changes that happened during the course of the year, 2011’s Security 50 ranking welcomes several new faces — Arecont Vision, Optex, Safran, Tiandy, TKH Group and Tyco. Either by strategic acquisition of other companies or exercising their technological expertise, these companies made it to Security 50 to represent the industry’s leaders. a&s briefly explores some of the major strategies these companies have e m p l o y e d t o i n c r e a s e t h e i r 2 0 11 revenue growth. In the beginning of 2011, TKH Group acquired Optelecom-NKF, a global supplier of advanced video surveillance solutions and now operating under the name Siqura. TKH Group can now set themselves apart in the field of video analysis, detection systems and integrated security solutions. This business transaction helped the company secure larger, international contracts.

Amid various events within Tyco’s business in 2011, Tyco bought Visonic, a leader in developing advanced wireless technology. Visonic strongly improved Tyco’s presence in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and broadened Tyco’s wireless intrusion products sales. Even though the ADT North America residential security business generated a lot of growth for Tyco, ADT will operate as an independent, publicly-traded company beginning at the end of 2012. Tyco's remaining commercial security business will be combined with the current fire protection segment to form a separate commercial fire and security company. In late 2010, Optex acquired Fiber SenSys, who has major operations in North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, to facilitate Optex’s growth as an international brand. Fiber SenSys specializes in fiber optics intrusion detection sensors, and have assisted Optex in reaching global markets. At the same time, Fiber SenSys was able to accelerate its innovative applications by leveraging Optex’s financial resources. To further expand their business, they acquired Raytec, a manufacturer and supplier of LED illumination for high security system cameras, in the beginning of 2012. By acquiring this company, Optex strengthened its presence in Europe and diversified its product lines.

Security OEM/ODM seekers say,

“Secutech is our must-visit show even under economic depression.” The security market is severely impacted by economic recession in 2012 but it didn’t influence security insiders’ determination to visit Secutech in person. Why ? Check key buyers’ sharing from their biz trips to Secutech 2012! Morocco / Ahmed Badda, General Manager of Damas Computers At Secutech, I learnt about the IP surveillance offer in the market. I compared products and talked to exhibitors about technical aspects of their IP solutions. Alongside, conferences helped me better decide the right choice between analogue and IP for my market. If my budget allows only one visit to an international security products fair, it would be, without any hesitation Secutech. Cutting on expenses is a must in this time. Yet, you cannot develop your business without seeing your manufacturer in person at least once a year.

Israel / Avi Bareket, CEO of Anteco Security Systems It‘s very important to meet manufacturers. I see them every year and check their manufacturing halls. Secutech is a very professional and quality exhibition. Most of the presenters are professional, businesslike and provide the solutions you are looking for. The exhibition is welcoming and I try not to miss it. I highly recommend the exhibition and it is one of the best quality ones in the field.

Spain / ShuangSheng Xu, Product Manager of Visiotech In economic turbulence, it is even more important to visit manufacturers to lower costs and offer the most competitive products at the most competitive price. I sourced all kind of accessories and products related to CCTV business at Secutech 2012.

Australia / Warren Simmons, Director of Eye-Tech Pty Ltd. Secutech has a good range of manufacturers, mostly with reasonable or good quality products. It is important to be able to talk with the engineers and others who know and understand the market.

Turkey / Rustu Arseven, General Manager of Tesan Iletisim Face-to-face negotiations/meetings are very important. Even though the economic environement is not good, meeting partners in person at least once a year is helpful. Secutech 2012 provided us with enough options of IP solutions. Addtionally, I found one OEM partner here!

Zoom in on HD-SDI at Secutech !

Awareness of HD-SDI has been growing since its inception in 2009. Market penetration, however, has been less than stellar, due to component/system availability, pricing structure and deliverability issues. Luckily, a number of dedicated chipset and solution providers have been working tirelessly to offer more affordable packages that address compatibility, transmission, storage and display challenges. One of the vertical segments that would particularly benefit from this technology is financial/banking, which has extensive proprietary analog infrastructure and above-average HD requirements. As such, Secutech will host the world’s largest HD-SDI pavilion in April 24-26 2013, featuring the industry’s first live demo of HD-SDI solutions in a simulated bank environment. Take a sneak peek at what’s on offer at this exciting event now!
