CCTV and its Role in Education

Written By:
Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

The school bell rings and children rush outside eagerly, pushing to get through to the long-awaited freedom that each end of the day guarantees. Scattered papers and pencils are now the only things that clutter the hallways at each day’s end. Teachers and school staff hastily complete their lesson plans for the next day, also wanting to get home to their own families and lives. Meanwhile, burglars nearby examine the school for any way to gain entrance undetected. Grant-funded computers and technology are at risk of being stolen, as teachers and staff are unable to incessantly guard the buildings of education around the clock.

The Department of Education published statistics stating that in the 2005-2006 school year, 86 percent of schools nationwide had reported at least one theft, crime, or violent incident, which resulted in a total of 2.2 million crimes. It is impossible to personally monitor every inch of school grounds every single day, so how are school campuses and educational facilities meant to keep their students and staff safe and harbor a sense of security? This is where closed-circuit television, or CCTV, can put up the next line of defense, scanning the perimeters and potentially acting as a deterrent to any future types of criminal activity.

CCTV School

CCTV can serve multiple purposes when utilized by the educational sector. First and foremost, CCTV can provide security services for educational buildings, guarding the technology and premises from outsiders who have intentions to harm the children, steal costly technology or vandalize school property. CCTV can also protect from threats inside the school, such as proving or disproving accusations of sexual abuse, bullying from other children, or theft from teachers or staff. More recently, CCTV has been put to work as a direct educational tool, being used as a vessel to funnel distance learning to remote areas or to non-traditional learners.

Ronald D. Stephens is the Executive Director of the National School Safety Center, and has had extensive experience as a former teacher and an assistant superintendent. He supports use of security cameras in the schools if they are used to fix a current problem. He found that when security cameras were installed in a Midwestern school district, vandalism decreased by 95 percent! The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that 84 percent of high schools, 73 percent of middle schools, and 51 percent of primary schools use security.

Security cameras have also been used to stop or prevent bullying in schools as well. Bullying has been shown to be very detrimental to a child’s health and social well being, so it is crucial to identify and address the perpetrators before victims retaliate or bullies go too far. Installing security cameras would allow for constant monitoring of areas where bullying is suspected to be occurring, and could also possibly discourage any future bullying behaviors. One school in the United States found that once security cameras were installed, the bullying and harassment stopped. Although bullying may still take place outside of school and away from the camera’s monitor, security cameras can potentially eliminate bullying on school campuses, which is a slow, but sure step in the right direction.

TechPro Security Products offers PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras that can protect premises by keeping a vigilante watch on all school property. The pan tilt zoom describes the camera’s ability to move. TechPro has three different kinds of PTZ cameras that include analog, network IP, and HD CVI.

Analog PTZ cameras are cameras that send feed through cable back to a digital video recorder (DVR), and tend to be less expensive.

Analog Security System

Network IP cameras send their feed as a digital stream over an IP network, and can be remotely accessed from different locations. IP cameras provide greater resolution than analog cameras, but can be more expensive than the traditional analog cameras.

Network IP Security Camera System

HD-CVI, or high definition composite video interface cameras can transmit high definition video quality. HD-CVI cameras are beneficial as they provide megapixel recording that could allow for a positive identification if crimes are ever recorded on school property.

HD-CVI Security Camera System

There are also various mounting options one can use with PTZ cameras, such as in ceiling mounts, arm mounts, or pendant mounts. In ceiling mounts are more discrete, while arm mounts are more visible to deter criminal or suspicious activity.

CCTV can also be used as an educational tool to stream learning sessions to remote areas from universities or other educational facilities. There are many people who are unable to attend a traditional classroom setting for a variety of reasons, and this is where CCTV can be used to act as an in-home or off location education setting. Distance education is continuously growing, and is now the most cost effective education that can be offered to a majority of people. CCTV has many advantages in terms of using it for distance education, such as its quality, control of content, and immediate replay options.

Distance-Learning

As the world becomes ever more intertwined in technology, CCTV will continue to serve roles in educational facilities by providing security measures against criminal activity and theft, bullying, and vandalism. CCTV in distance learning will continue to grow even more, as more and more countries become developed and are able to access Internet connections more easily. As technology advances, CCTV will perhaps be utilized in even more aspects in order to provide cutting-edge education and assist educators in the learning process of students all around the world.

Things to know about HD-CVI, HD-SDI & IP security cameras and recorders

Terms, abbreviations and definitions
1. High Definition Composite Video Interface or HD-CVI- Is a new video technology that supports 1080p and 720p resolution. Because it is a low frequency video signal, standard RG59 coax up to 1,600 feet can be used.

2. High Definition Serial Digital Interface or HD-SDI- Was originally used for TV production and was adopted by the CCTV industry to deliver high resolution video 1080p or 720p. Due to the HD-SDI high frequencies sometimes up to 2.2 GHZ the use of RG59 is limited.

3. RG59 coax- is used for low voltage video signals such as security cameras, short video cables for cable boxes and satellite receivers.

4. RG6 coax- is used for digital signals that required 50 MHZ or higher. Used primarily for HD video and audio signals.

5. POE or Power over Ethernet – allows you to have a network connection and receive power from a single Ethernet cable. So on a POE camera setup you only need a single cable to transmit video, audio and power.

6. DVR or Digital Video Recorder- converts an analog signal and converts it to digital to be stored on a storage device such as a hard drive, SD card or USB flash drive.

7. NVR or Network Video Recorder- Records already encoded video from the IP camera (no encoding is done by the NVR) and stored on the hard drive, SD card or USB flash drive. HD-CVI uses P2P (Peer to Peer Protocol) instead of an encoding decoding method between IP Camera and NVR this change in transmission between the camera and DVR allows for a smoother and more reliable image. In addition a built in low frequency modulator reduces high frequency interference created by cell phones and WIFI routers normally seen in IP and WIFI cameras.

Because of the way HD-CVI transmits you can now have extended cable distances on standard RG59 up to 1600 FT @720p and 980 FT @1080p. Where on IP based systems you have a 330 FT. Maximum and can vary based on POE switches and power outputs. On HD-SDI the Maximum distance using RG6 3GHZ quad shield is 500 FT. and standard RG59 300 FT can vary on quality of cable.

The added benefit to HD-CVI is you can still get HD video quality and not spend as much as you would with the IP setups. You can choose between a 720p or 1080P HD-CVI security cameras and both work with the same HD-CVI DVR. Below is an example of the HD-CVI @ 720p V.S IP @ 720p

SECURITY CAMERA KING – HD-CVI @ 720P

HDCVI-720p-Sample

SECURITY CAMERA KING – IP @ 720P

IP-Camera-720p-sample

Both images from above were are still images captured from our DVR-CVI8240M HD-CVI DVR and our NVR-ELM-16 NVR. As you can see both images have similar video qualities the only differences are the price and length of the cable runs.

HD-CVI is also beneficial for people that already have preexisting analog systems and want to upgrade to a HD system. There is no need to run new cables unlike the HD-SDI which required RG6 or the IP systems that require CAT6 cables. This alone can save you a few hundred dollars for a 4 camera install and 1000+ on an 8 camera install.

Below is a comparison Chart of what it would cost for an 8 camera HD-CVI, HD-SDI and IP system (accessories not included such as cable and power) for each type of setup.

COMPARISON CHART UPGRADE COST FROM AN EXISTING ANALOG SYSTEM to HD-CVI, HD-SDI or IP

The estimates are not 100% accurate and are based. This is just an example

HDCVI-HDSDI-IP

As you can see on a basic install the difference between HD-CVI and HD-SDI is $887.00, the comparison between HD-CVI and IP is $702.19. For those looking to get into HD playing field and are looking to save money HD-CVI is the way to go. Everything has been made easy by Security Camera King so your install process is easier and more economical.

How to configure an HDCVI Camera and HDCVI DVR

Written By:
Monday, May 5th, 2014

Technology is one of my favorite topics and when it comes to security equipment I chose to write about how it works and explain how easy is to work with one of our products we offer.

Today I will be introducing a new technology called HDCVI (High Definition Composite Video interface) and I will be demonstrating how this HDCVI DVR will change the way analog systems will slowly fall and the HD world will dominate the security system market.

What is HDCVI?

HDCVI (High Definition Composite Video interface) is an independent and proprietary technology where it is capable of transmitting High Definition Video over standard coaxial cable. Also, HD-CVI is capable of transmitting up to 2 Megapixel video over existing coax cable infrastructures up to 1600 feet without any third party repeaters Hardware; this provides a much better solution than HD-SDI which is limited to 300 feet transmission.

The following pictures will show you front and back panels of an HDCVI DVR 4CH and 8CH:

HDCVI DVR 4 Channel Back

4 Channel Back Panel

HDCVI DVR 8 Channel Back

8 Channel Back Panel

HDCVI DVR Front

Front Panel 4 & 8 Channel

What type of cable I can use?

HDCVI Cable_Connectors

HDCVI can be used with regular RG59 (Siamese Cable). This type of cable is found typically on installations where regular analog cameras are setup in place.

This cable is ideal for this application because you will not need to modify anything in your cabling when adding HDCVI cameras and and HDCVI DVR.

You could also use Cat5 & Cat6 cable. This cable will need a different set of fittings such as RJ45 connectors. These fittings are the same type of connectors you will find on a regular Ethernet cable.

How can I identify HDCVI cameras from Analog, HDSDI Cameras & IP cameras?

HDCVI cameras have an extra pair of cables. These cables are color coded with a purple and white color. When connected together the video through HDCVI will stop outputting and then the camera is able to reproduce video over an analog DVR or handheld monitor. This is by design and is just intended to be used solely to adjust the camera while it is mounted and connected to a hand-held monitor.

ANALOG cameras have only 2 wires. These are mostly Power and Video. There are some cameras that will have an extra pair of wires and they are commonly used for PTZ controlling, while some other cameras use these cables to access the OSD menus of the camera.

HDSDI cameras will normally have 3 wires. Two BNC wires and 1 connector for Power. One of the BNC connectors output analog signal, and this will allow you to connect the camera to an analog DVR or handheld monitor. The second BNC connector will allow you to connect to an HDSDI DVR and it will only display HD video through those kind of devices. The third connector is power.

IP cameras will have 2 wires also. These will be an RJ45 style connector and a power connector. Some IP cameras are able to be powered over RJ45 with a single cable. They will be able to distribute power, data and control.

HDCVI, HDSDI, Analog and IP Connectors.

Refer to the following sample pictures to learn the differences between these connectors:

HDCVI Camera Connectors

HDCVI Camera Connectors

HDSDI Camera Connectors

HDSDI Camera Connectors

Analog Camera Connectors

Analog Camera Connectors

IP Connectors

IP Camera Connector

HDCVI Installation and Configuration

There is not too much involved when installing HDCVI cameras. There is no need to configure any IP address, ports, etc. For installations where there is pre-existing Siamese cable, the procedure is very simple as you just need to replace the analog camera and installing the HDCVI camera in its place.

One of the most notorious features of an HDCVI camera is the fact that the video data, audio and RS485 controls is transmitted over the same cable. Our HDCVI cameras have an OSD (On Screen Display) menu that can be accessed to configure features of the camera video such as brightness, exposure, sharpness, Frames, etc.

To access the OSD, simply connect the camera in the desired channel of your HDCVI DVR and begin to configure the RS485 communication in the DVR on the channel where the camera is connected. An example to this is if the camera is connected on channel 1 then you will need to configure the RS485 settings of that channel. Same thing will occur for any other camera you connect to the DVR.

The following settings will need to be configured in the DVR in order to establish communication with the camera’s OSD. Follow the screenshot below:

Go to: Main Menu>Settings>Pan/Tilt/Zoom and make sure these settings are there.

Pan-Tilt-Zoom

Another exceptional feature and hassle-free with HDCVI cameras is that when configuring the RS485 control feature on each camera it is not required to change the address or baud rate on each camera, making it extremely easy to install and configure all the cameras without interference.

After you have applied these setting to all the channels then it is time to test the RS485 communication with the cameras and DVR. To access the OSD of the camera, simply right click on the channel you want to open the Pan/Tilt/Zoom Controller:

Right Click Pan Tilt Zoom
Page Search
HDCVI main Menu

Navigate through the OSD of the camera using the arrows of the controller, and then if you want to change a value or a feature simply click the right arrow to change values. You will also notice that some of the menus have an arrow in it. That means there is a sub menu that you can access and change settings. To access the sub menus simply click the (ENTER) button and the new menu will appear. To go back menus select the (BACK) option and click enter to go to the original Menu.

Configuring the DVR and its settings

There are a few things we will need to tweak to make sure we get accurate recordings. You can do this using the Setup Wizard as well as doing it manually.

Login to the DVR by right clicking on your mouse and select Main Menu. A prompt for your username and password will appear.

You can use the 888888 or the admin to configure your DVR and the password will be the same as the users name. After you have logged in the MAIN MENU window will appear.

HDCVI main Menu2.jpg

Next click on SETTINGS then GENERAL.

HDCVI General Setting

Under the GENERAL settings make sure the system time is set correctly based on your Time Zone. Make sure you click “SAVE” after changing the time. Next you can change the Date Format to MM/DD/YYYY. You can also set the Time Format to 12H or 24H if you like. Here is a screenshot of the general settings:

HDCVI Schedule2

Next we can see the schedule of how your DVR will be recording. Under the SETTINGS page click on SCHEDULE Then the following window will appear:

HDCVI Schedule2

If you would like to change the settings of the schedule to Motion Detection (MD), then you will need to uncheck (Regular) and just check (MD) for Period 1. Click on “Copy”; click (All) to apply these settings to all of the channels. Next click the Drop Down arrow under “Period” and select (All) to apply these settings to every day of the week. Click OK when you are done.
At this point your DVR should be recording based on motion event only and you can make sure this is happening by seeing the following icons on the screen:

HDCVI Motion

Indicates motion is occurring when is displayed.

HDCVI Encode Icon

Indicates that the DVR is currently recording an event. This will stay ON until motion ends.

Next setting to configure and one of the most important ones is the ENCODING (Camera Resolution). Under SETTINGS click on ENCODE and the next window will appear:

HDCVI Encode

All of our DVRs, NVRs and IP cameras have the capability of recording at different resolutions, FPS and Bit Rate based on Events, either Motion Detection, Continuous recording (Regular) or an Alarm. The left column is called Main Stream and the right column is called Extra Stream or Assistance.

Lastly you can configure the sensitivity of the camera by going to SETTING and select DETECT.

HDCVI Detect

NOTE: DO NOT click on “Copy” on this section because all of the settings will be copied to channel one, making the DVR not recognized motion on any other channel .

Here you can change the sensitivity of each camera, activate email notification, enable tour and even show a pop-up message when motion occurs on any channel. Always remember to save your settings.

I hope you find this article intuitive and helpful.

Why the new HD-CVI technology may be the future of security camera systems.

Written By:
Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

As video technology continues to improve with time, it makes sense that the public continues to express a growing interest in security cameras that can reliably provide better video quality then was possible in the recent past. Here at Techpro Security Products we are constantly upgrading the CCTV products that we offer our customers in order to stay on the cutting edge of the industry. This also means that we can provide an array of equipment that lets you select the surveillance solution that best fits your budget and security requirements. Because of this effort we are excited to now be offering HD-CVI (High Definition Composite Video Interface) surveillance cameras and DVRs to our customers.

HD-CVI complete security camera system.

Until very recently, IP cameras were the most common equipment that someone purchased when they wanted to get megapixel quality video from their security camera system. This type of network based CCTV system still offers the highest resolution available today but the new HD-CVI is closing the gap. There are also some issues with installing IP cameras which mean that installing them can be a little more challenging.

An issue that has to be faced when someone is doing an installation with IP cameras is the fact that they require a significant amount of bandwidth. You may face this issue both inside and outside the network where they’re installed. This can occur inside the network because the video signal is being transmitted from all of the cameras to the recording device or NVR though the internal network. This significant bandwidth usage can also be a problem if you are trying to remotely connect to the NVR from outside network where it’s installed, unless your Internet service provider is supplying you with high upload speeds. Configuring these IP cameras to work within the network where they’re installed can also be a daunting task for anyone that doesn’t have a good understanding about how networks operate.

The HD-CVI technology lets the camera send video to the DVR for recording as a digital signal. The unusual part is the fact that the video signal does not need to be transferred through a network. This allows you to record megapixel quality video through any of the cabling options that have been typically used with analog security cameras installations for decades.

HD-CVI Cable Options

With this type of CCTV system you are able to use RG-59 or RG-6 (these are types of coaxial cable that is commonly with analog security cameras), standard CAT5 cables with baluns or prefabricated “plug and play” cables to carry the video signal from security cameras to the recording device. RG-59 will offer you the highest quality video; while CAT 5 cable will offer video that is approximately 5 to 10 percent lower quality then RG 59 and the prefabricated “plug and play” cables offer about 5 to 10 lower video quality then the CAT5. Most professional CCTV installers will use a type of wire that is called Siamese cable for most security camera installs. This cable consists of RG 59 and two 18 gauge wires for power transmission all joined into one wire by a tough insulation wrapped around the exterior of these cables.

This new type of surveillance system lets you run the cables for the cameras a longer distance from the DVR then either IP cameras or the HD-SDI technology will allow. Both IP and HD-SDI cameras are limited to transmitting video a distance up to 333 feet, while using the new HD-CVI technology allows you to transmit video up to 1,500 feet. It’s important to note that the distance that you can run power for these cameras is still subject to the same restrictions as the other types of cameras that are currently on the market. Once the power for a camera has traveled over 100 feet then the voltage begins to drop off. If the power goes far enough beyond the 100 feet then the voltage will drop to the point where the camera will not get enough power to operate correctly. This is true with either AC or DC power supplies.

HD-CVI is low cost

One aspect of this technology that is sure to capture the attention of experienced installers and the end users doing their first install is the fact that the cost is incredibly low compared to other existing video transmission formats. Even though this technology offers such high video quality, the price is very close to the older analog security camera systems and it’s significantly less expensive than either an HD-SDI system or a network based IP camera system. An HD-CVI security camera system will also save you a considerable amount of time and money because no matter what type of cable you use with them, they are able to transmit video, audio and the signal for controlling the camera’s OSD (or On Screen Display) over a single line.

HD-CVI Resolution

These cameras can offer 720p resolution right now but a 1080p version of the HD-CVI cameras are scheduled to be released around the end of the year. When these 1080p cameras some out they will be compatible with the current HD-CVI DVRs. The maximum resolution that analog security camera technology are limited to is 960 x 480 pixels. Once the 1080p cameras become available then a HD-CVI security camera system will offer 450 percent higher resolution then the maximum resolution of the older analog technology is able to provide. A 1080p camera actually captures video that is 1920×1080 pixels.

720p Example

HD-CVI is also something to consider if you want to upgrade an analog system to the point that it will give you megapixel quality video. Upgrading to this type system will allow you to simply replace the cameras and the DVR. The existing power supply and wiring will work great with these upgraded devices. Not only will upgrading your system in this way save you the cost of buying these items again but it will also be much easier and quicker, since running the wiring for a security camera system is the most labor intensive part of the process.

This new technology represents a substantial breakthrough in security camera technology and it is not widely available yet. As a matter of fact, SecurityCameraKing.com is one of the few places that you can purchase it the United States. Below is a link where you can find these new products.

We do that, no problem. Worried about quality? In three years of working as a dealer for Techpro Security Products, I never had a bad DVR, and only one bad camera. This was out of literally hundreds shipped. The company claims an RMA rate of 1%, but my experience was better than that. Have a tech question? I have NEVER worked with better-trained techs in all my years. The sales people can answer most questions. The experts in the tech support department will quickly handle the tougher ones. In a very unusual arrangement for a company in this business, there are more techs than sales people. Because client service is such a vital part of the company’s ethos, we are growing and expanding to better serve our growing customer base. Yes, we always want to get that first order, but subsequent orders are far more important. That is the key to success. Excellence in product, service, and client satisfaction is our goal. We really understand that it is far easier to lose a customer than it is to get a new one, so we work hard to keep all happy.

So, if you happen to be in Boca Raton, Florida, escaping the Frozen Northlands, or just on your way to the Keys, come on over to see our products and staff. We are easy to find, just two miles off I-95. The coffee is pretty good too.

Wrapping it all up

When you are considering a video system, it is very important to understand what you are getting. We only deal with professional level equipment. We have less expensive units, to be sure, but none can be considered consumer grade. In contrast to what is sold in the big box stores, all our products are built to a performance goal, not a price goal. You will get all that wonderful service I have explained, which you will never get from the consumer product resellers. Your security investment will be safe and will return benefits for a far longer time. Your satisfaction is secure. Some are tempted to bring cameras in direct from China. Yes, they are a lot cheaper. Support? Non-existent. Shipping delays? Yup. Real quality? One dealer that had used a Chinese supplier said he always had to add extra units to his order because of the failure rates. THAT headache will not happen here. Do it once, do it right.
