The 2nd Generation of Falcon Extreme, a 5000fps H.264 Video Surveillance System, was Unleashed at ISC West 2012

April 3, 2012

The second generation of Falcon Extreme high performance servers can integrate video processing, storage, viewing, and Advanced Analytics for 125 high definition cameras, all in one server.

Normally, separate servers are needed for video processing, video storage, video viewing and video analytics. DNF’s breakthrough in video acceleration technology, the Falcon Extreme G200 video platform, has enough processing power to provide all four video operations for as many as 125 high definition cameras in only a single server, providing customers with an affordable solution for their surveillance needs.

Like its predecessor the Falcon Extreme G100, the Falcon Extreme G200 video platform has achieved another major performance milestone for the surveillance market. Its breakthrough technology allows many surveillance functions that are normally extremely taxing on servers to be integrated into a single server. The performance of one Falcon Extreme G200 is equivalent to and can replace up to 7 (seven) surveillance servers currently available in the market. This not only reduces up front product costs, infrastructure complexity, footprint, power and installation requirements, but it also provides tremendous reduction in the overall operation cost and cost of ownership.

DNF Security’s second generation high performance IP video processing and storage system has been tested and certified with many market-leading Video Management Software (VMS) and video surveillance camera system vendors allowing for easy implementations.

Falcon Extreme G200 video processing performance is complemented with high performance, high capacity, secure and reliable storage systems, exceeding even the most demanding storage requirements of Video Management Software (VMS). It is available in several different form factors to support a range of customer applications and environments. The G200 series is available in rack mountable as well as tower systems with new features such as an ultra quiet chassis for noise sensitive environments.


Banks, ATMs and IP Surveillance – a Match Made in Heaven

July 15, 2011

The other day, while just clicking through the web, I found this article “How to Gear Up ATM Security Using IP Surveillance?” and it really caught my attention. We all know that IP Surveillance has its advantages, (including higher levels of image resolution, etc.) but there is no other industry that benefits from an IP environment than banks.

Here are some highlight advantages that the article addresses:

  • High resolution streaming makes it possible to detect thieves with much precision than CCTV.
  • Mobility of IP enables surveillance personnel to access video footage remotely.
  • IP Video prevents a process called “skimming” from ATMs.

Want to learn more about how to implement IP to your surveillance environment? Watch this informative webinar on DNF Security’s YouTube page.

Aftermath of Richmond High Rape– Surveillance on Campus

November 13, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, a 15-year-old Richmond High School student was gang-raped in a campus alleyway during a school dance. A crowd of witnesses watched for hours while the brutal act took place, yet there was no surveillance cameras installed on the school grounds to capture the incident.

We’ve come to an age where campus security should be a pressing concern for school officials. After this eye-opening incident, there has been growing concern among parents, educators, and community leaders at the lack of security monitoring devices on school campuses.

Recently, the West Contra Costa County School board voted to go ahead with plans to install a IP surveillance system featuring 120 cameras at Richmond High.

Sheriff’s gun stolen from car, video footage poor

August 21, 2009

The crime: A Georgia sheriff has his gun, radio, GPS device and briefcase stolen from his car in broad daylight at a public parking lot.

The problem: The video surveillance footage shows merely a figure with no detailed information. All police can identify is the suspect’s body and car type. Check out the video:

The solution: Think about investing a little more in higher definition cameras. Higher resolution = higher likelihood police identify the suspect.

Video tutorial on designing a video security system

April 14, 2009

Need some help designing a video security system?  Check out this video from GSP America.

Here are 6 questions from the video on what to look for and what to ask:

  1. What type of cameras should I use?
  2. How should I connect the cameras to the video management system?
  3. What type of video management system should I use?
  4. What sort of video analytics should I use?
  5. How should I view my surveillance video?
  6. How should I integrate video with my other systems?

I’d add the following questions to consider during the design phase.

  • How much analytics can your video management system process at once?
  • Does your system have enough bandwidth to support all of the simultaneous recording activity you expect?
  • How long do you need to keep your footage stored on a live system?  Do you also need to archive your footage to a secondary system later?
  • How can you ensure the system you buy today will support your needs tomorrow?
  • Are there any regulations or retention policies that impact how long you need to keep your footage?  How can you guarantee you are meeting these requirements, and ensure your video is safe and protected?
