High definition vs Megapixels

  1. 1. Megapixel Surveillance in Real World, Fantasy or Reality?<br />Chandler Zhang<br />International Business Representative<br />
  2. 2. Table of Content<br />Megapixel Technology: Fantasy or Reality?<br />Case Study: HD Surveillance System<br />HIKVISION overview<br />
  3. 3. HD Surveillance: Fantasy or Reality?<br />Current Challenges:<br />The cost for large scale surveillance system would increase dramatically if using megapixel technology (compared to regular surveillance systems)<br />The networking infrastructure between different systems is very complicated given the amount of data flow, latency, etc.<br />Difficult to encode and decode in real-time with large scale megapixel technology deployment<br />Difficult to expand the system<br />High management and maintenance cost<br />Lack of know-how<br />
  4. 4. Solutions?<br />Current Requirement by End-users<br />Integrated networking video surveillance system<br />Simplified large-scale video surveillance system<br />Real-time video surveillance system<br />Shows super high clarity and details<br />Centralized data storage and management<br />Video analytics<br />Open protocol and interface<br />
  5. 5. Transition of Video Surveillance<br />Video Analytics<br />IP<br />Digital<br />Analog<br />High-definition<br /><ul><li>Analog Camera + VCR
  6. 6. Analog Camera+ DVR
  7. 7. Analog Camera + Video Server + Storage
  8. 8. IP Camera + DVR/NVR
  9. 9. HD IP Camera + Storage</li></ul>1999<br />2005<br />2010<br />
  10. 10. Current Status of Video Surveillance<br />The mainstream of the industry is still using CIF and 4CIF resolution <br />The current video surveillance system is mainly used for event recording. Details of the event, however, are not “detailed” enough yet.<br />The bottleneck was in technical development and market adoption.<br />Who is this guy?<br />Is it $80K or $90K?<br />
  11. 11. Advantage of HD Surveillance<br />More details!<br />
  12. 12. Requirement: Need to see both the license plate and driver’s face<br />HD Camera<br />Analog Camera<br />
  13. 13. Advantage of HD Surveillance<br />Wider coverage per camera = less cameras on-site<br />HD Camera<br />Regular Camera<br />
  14. 14. Everything HD<br />An Ideal HD Surveillance System<br />Video Input: With HD IP camera, HD digital camera, or HD encoder<br />Management Platform: Supports centralized/distributed HD video stream and management command<br />Storage: Supports storage and retrieval of HD video data<br />Decoding and Video Output: Directly process HD video data for output<br />Video Display: HD display<br />Other Application: Such as video analytics – higher resolution brings higher accuracy for video analytics<br />HD Transmission: Supports HD video transmission. Transmit uncompressed video stream can also be considered in order to lower the latency.<br />
  15. 15. Case Study: HD Surveillance System<br />Location: <br />Shanghai Pudong, where World Expo 2010 are being held in.<br />Total visitor :6,528,460,000(up to Jun. 9)<br />Objective: <br />Establish a comprehensive high-definition surveillance system in order to monitor the Expo closely and discover criminal activities in real-time.<br />
  16. 16. System Requirement<br />Wide Coverage<br />Covering 42 police stations, 6 sub-monitoring stations, and 1 central monitoring station in Pudong, Shanghai.<br />Over 12,000 surveillance spots.<br />Advance<br />Using the latest surveillance technology, products and infrastructure to achieve high security requirement.<br />Extendable<br />Need to be able to extend for the future requirement.<br />Easy to Manage<br />All the sub systems need to be centrally managed.<br />
  17. 17. Why HD?<br />Wider Coverage<br />In order to have a wider coverage, you need to have hundreds or thousands of VGA cameras in place.<br />The information in one single HD camera equals to several VGA cameras.<br />
  18. 18. Why HD?<br />ePTZ<br />Apart from the increased clarity of the image, HD camera also has ePTZ function for user to track or zoom in the targeted object in order to get the details.<br />Identification<br />Provide details for license plate, driver and passenger in vehicles, etc.<br />
  19. 19. System Infrastructure<br />
  20. 20. Data Flow<br />Forensics<br />
  21. 21. Data Flow<br />Real-time Tracking<br />
  22. 22. Success in Large Scale Deployment<br />Has money<br />Has clear ideas about what they want and what they like to achieve<br />Think big and long<br />
  23. 23. HIKVISION overview <br /><ul><li>According to IMS Research’s Global Video Surveillance Report 2009, Hikvision is the No. 1 supplier of DVR products worldwide.
