Benchmark Magazine Innovation Awards 2019: Winner: FLIR Saros

Video Surveillance (Hardware) Winner: FLIR Saros

Benchmark Magazine, delivers independent and credible editorial content, has revealed the winners of the 2019 edition of its Innovation Awards.

Saros delivers a range of complimentary benefits while ensuring installations are simple and cost-effective. That the Benchmark Magazine verdict!

Saros is a single device combining a number of technologies to deliver a solution which maximizes catch a performance while minimizing the level of compromise.


Saros devices make use of high definition video cameras, thermal imaging cores, integral illuminators, intelligent video analytics, alarm inputs and outputs and two-way audio. This enables a high degree of flexibility and permits numerous combinations to be deployed, enhancing the level of protection on offer.

The Saros range utilises its perimeter protection technologies to deliver accurate and actionable alarm notifications backed by verified alarm data. The devices include multiple Lepton thermal sensors, along with up to three HD1080p or 4K video modules, dependent upon the product specification.

The units additionally incorporate IR and white light LED illuminators, with auto selection based upon the operating mode and site conditions.

Both the video and thermal imaging streams incorporate advanced onboard analytics. These have the ability to differentiate between people and vehicles, ensuring alarm and event classifications are accurate.

The Saros range enables users to implement reliable outdoor intrusion detection in a cost-effective manner by minimising equipment requirements and reducing false alarms.

With the growing focus on cybersecurity, FLIR has ensured its Saros range incorporates secure design and engineering to reduce the risk of remote security attacks. The devices incorporate end-to-end encryption for set-up, web connectivity and video stream transmission. The configurations eliminate the need for port-forwarding, and device configurations can be ‘locked down’ when the initial set-up is completed to deliver a high degree of tamper prevention.

The Saros range includes six models. The DH-390 2TB and DH-390 8MP models feature a single HD1080p video sensor and a 4K UHD video sensor respectively. Both variants incorporate two thermal imaging sensors with a 320 x 120 pixel array with a 90 degree field of view.

The MH-6180 4MP and MH-6180 16MP models feature dual HD1080p video sensors and 4K UHD video sensors respectively. Both variants incorporate two thermal imaging sensors with a 640 x 120 pixel array with a 180 degree field of view.

Finally, the MH-9270 6MP and MH-9270 24MP cameras feature three HD1080p video sensors and 4K UHD video sensors respectively. Both variants incorporate six thermal imaging sensors with a 960 x 120 pixel array with a 270 degree field of view.

All devices include real-time video and backlight compensation. A 16GB SSD is used for edge storage.
The video cameras use 3-9mm lenses with autofocus and motorised zoom.

Insight Acoustics Signs New Distribution Partnership with Olvitech Corporation

Insight Acoustics Ltd. – August 22st, 2019 – Insight Acoustics, a leading provider of Computer Vision Guided Acoustic Beamforming Platform and Targeted Audio Surveillance System, today announced a new partnership with Olvitech Corporation. Under the new partnership, Olvitech Corporation will act as a main platform for distributing the entire Insight Acoustics product line to customers in Russia as well as the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

“Real-Time & Forensic Audio-Scoping, which allows accurate and continuous sound source tracking & sound capture, is a game-changer in the Home Land Security operational concept. The ability to visually track a suspect and Audio-Track him, while filtering out all ambient sounds, provides the 4th dimension to reliably approach any Security challenge, both for indoor or outdoor scenarios”, said Elya Presman, Managing Director at Olvitech Corporation. As Insight Acoustics’ first distributor in this territory, we look forward to bringing the state-of-the-art targeted audio surveillance solutions technology to our customers.”

From its Moscow office, Olvitech Corporation will support locally Insight Acoustics solutions in Russia, as well as in CIS countries.  The partnership includes the entire Insight Acoustics product line and Olvitech Corporation sees tremendous opportunity across this region for reliable and ground-breaking solutions.

About Insight Acoustics

InSight Acoustics is a leading Audio Surveillance solution provider and known for the HyperMic technology, an optical and acoustic sensors combined into a single, optically guided acoustic beam-forming device.

HyperMic can optically track multiple people or any user-selected sound source, estimate a relative direction to each source, and concurrently steer independent acoustic beam formers. The output of each acoustic beam former is a digital audio stream whose audio content is predominantly composed of sounds arriving from the direction of the selected source.

An extended version of the HyperMic technology, CrossBeam, utilizes two or more synchronized HyperMic modules in order to direct multiple beam formers from different directions toward the same sound source. CrossBeam digital audio stream outputs are time-aligned and cross-correlated to provide an additional speech-capture performance boost.


Security Solution at IFSEC2019

Last month our team visited once again at the leading international security exhibition, IFSEC.

IFSEC International is one of the most important events for HLS and Security, took a place from June 18-21 in London.

IFSEC 2019 (1)

IFSEC 2019 presents the new technologies and standards for the HLS and Defense segments, and marks the future in the different Security oriented segments. The Exhibition connects thousands of professionals with technologies and ideas that shape the security industry.

IFSEC visitors were able to learn first-hand on different innovative topics, such as access control, different biometrics technologies, the new generation of video surveillance, IP security in general and last but not least, new and exciting solutions based on Deep Learning & Artificial Intelligence (AI).

One of the most exciting technologies that stood out of the rest, in the Biometrics segment, was the the Cortica solution. Cortica Face Recognition extra-ordinary solution is based  upon proprietary brain research and the AI platform is modeled on neuron activity and learning mechanisms occurring in the mammal brain.We do see great potential for Cortica innovative Face Recognition technology in our projects, and we already engaged with the company in different PoCs strategic projects.
