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.

China’s Growing Video Surveillance Market – How will it benefit Overseas Surveillance Brands?

August 23, 2010

China, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, might also be one of the biggest consumers in the surveillance global market. In a study conducted by IMS Research last month, it is expected that the Chinese surveillance market between 2010 to 2014 will grow over 20% annually, boosting the national surveillance market to $3.5 billion by 2014. This is a substantial amount, considering that the estimated Chinese surveillance market in 2009 was $1.4 billion.

However what does this mean to the global surveillance market? As we all know entering the Chinese market, in general, can be tricky especially for businesses coming from the West. The culture, the fierce competition, and everything else in between can determine the success or failure of a business. However one of the biggest adversities that foreign companies endure, especially in the surveillance and technology industry, are the strict Chinese trade rules and regulations.

In fact companies in the foreign business community find that these strict trade regulations often hinder them from doing business in China, ultimately giving domestic brands the upper hand in the end.  So is it worth surveillance-based companies in the US or Europe to enter into the “Wild East”? The verdict is still up in the air, but one thing is for sure, China is a hot emerging surveillance market.

“How to build a resilient Video Surveillance & Storage Solution? When ‘Up-time’ is a Must!”

June 11, 2010

When it comes to security solutions, there are two major issues that we come across with everyday: one is the possibility of failover, and the other is redundancy. It is a frustrating situation to be in, but there are ways to eliminate these unfortunate predicaments and design a Resilient Surveillance and Storage System.

Tune in on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at 10:00am PST (1:00am EST) as we present our weekly DNF Security Webinar. This week’s webinar is titled “How to build a resilient Video Surveillance & Storage Solution? When ‘Up-time’ is a Must!” We will cover the following:

  • How to define, the high availability, redundancy and failover requirements from Server- to-Storage?
  • What are the parameters of design and the components to choose from?
  • What are the statistical possibilities of failover?
  • What are the tools and techniques in designing a resilient & robust system?

IP Network & Storage for Security Surveillance Design & Practices, Made Simple!

June 7, 2010

When working with our resellers, we have learned that one of their concerns is explaining to their customers the advantages of utilizing IP Network and Storage for Surveillance Systems. Although both go hand in hand when enhancing your security system, many might do not know the real benefits of implementing these two components onto their security projects.

So to clear up any confusion about the subject, DNF Security will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 10:00 am PST to address the best practices to design and implement IP based Network & Storage. In this webinar you will learn:

1) What are ‘must know’ design parameters and how to use them: Save money and time
2) How to choose right components: Network & Storage – the Plug and Play way
3) Step By Step check-out list that ensures success

DNF Security Releases New Products

May 3, 2010

The wait is finally over! We finally unveiled our newest IP surveillance storage products. The Falcon- DL (Diskless Server) and Falcon-BVMS (Bunch of Video Management Software) are the latest additions to our Falcon product family series.

Falcon-DL is a series of diskless IP video recording and management servers. Featuring an energy-saving diskless design, Falcon-DL servers boot directly from DNF Security’s Seahawk line of Internet Protocol (IP) storage area network (SAN) devices to provide superior data protection, optimum mean time to repair (MTTR) and significant cost savings.

The Falcon-BVMS incorporates multiple VMS and integrated RAID protected shared video storage within a single physical hardware. The configuration allows users to have fewer points of management, save on energy expenses, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

For information about the Falcon-DL and Falcon-BVMS, please check out our press releases or contact our sales team.

DNF Security Introduces VC9300 for Ultimate Surveillance Control

February 16, 2010


We just unveiled the VC9300 Video-Monitoring Centre Workstation, a video viewing console designed to double the power of video transmission for maximum resolution. With the support of up to 12 monitors, the VC9300’s standalone monitoring management gateway offers complete surveillance control.

The all-in-one video viewing and display platform allows video management servers to decouple video streaming and viewing from video recording and archiving. In this framework the computing power for the systems in the IP surveillance system is allocated properly to the management of streams, display, and recording in a Network Centric framework. By separating the recording from the viewing of surveillance video, the VC9300 is able to provide speed and signal quality at maximum resolution, which is perfect for LCD displays and HD flat panels. To read more about the VC9300, check out the news release.
