BioCatch VP touts behavioral biometrics as wave of the future

by vmstoday - on Oct 11th 2017 - No Comments

Behavioral biometrics is a breakthrough cybersecurity technology that identifies people by how they do what they do, rather than by their physical characteristics, what they know, or by the authentication technology they possess.

Behavioral biometrics is defined as the measurement and analysis of human activity patterns. Historically, these have included keystroke patterns, gait, and handwritten signatures. However, today’s advanced behavioral biometric techniques now capture a wider array of human interactions between a device and an application, such as hand-eye coordination, pressure, hand tremors, navigation, scrolling and other finger movements.

Hikvision unveils new speed dome camera with impressive optical zoom

by vmstoday - on Aug 22nd 2017 - No Comments

Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions has launched a new Network IR Speed Dome (DS-2DF8250I5X-AEL (W)) with an impressive 50x optical zoom lens, giving it the ability to pick out more details over wider areas. The camera is also the first product to have Optical Image Stabilisation to compensate for image drift.

50X Optical Zoom

With a zoom lens that can go from 6.6mm to 330mm, objects can be seen at an even further distance than before. This gives the operator a lot more flexibility to track and check people or objects in and around their area. The camera also boasts Eagle Eye focus technology, making the image clear, even when zooming.
Optical Image Stabilisation

The Speed Dome is the first Hikvision camera to use the new Optical Image Stabilization technology, making the image clearer than ever. When the lens is stable, the image is focused on the centre of the sensor, but when the lens shakes that focus drifts away from the center. This causes blurring on the image. The camera uses a gyroscope to measure the vibration and send that information to a processing chip. This then uses an algorithm to make an adjustment to the IS lens to correct the drift.

Other features include:

• 2MP, with H.265+
• Up to 500m IR distance
• Rapid focus, for a clear image even when zooming
• 1/2.8” progressive scan CMOS chip.

This camera can be used in scenarios that call for wide ranges and/or high-definition. This makes it ideal for outdoor areas, such as the rivers, forests, roads, railways, airports, ports, squares, parks, scenic spots, stations and large venues.

A Hikvision Product Manager said, “This product offers customers not just one, but two firsts for us. One of our furthest zoom distances coupled with our new optical image stabilization technology, means they can benefit from stable images at further distances. It’s another example of our drive to continuously push innovation in the surveillance industry. ”
