Hoboken, N.J. â€“ IndigoVision, a leading provider of IP Video solutions for security surveillance applications, has launched a suite of advanced analytics integrated within its complete end-to-end IP Video system. These algorithms run both in real-time on live video and also on recorded video using â€˜Control Centerâ€™, IndigoVisionâ€™s enterprise video and alarm management software. Deploying real-time analytics at the camera enables fewer employees to monitor more cameras allowing more personnel to work in the field. Live demonstrations of the new advanced analytics suite will be available throughout the ASIS show in San Diego, CA on booth#: 629.
â€œIndigoVision's goal is to provide sophisticated analytics as an integral part of our market leading IP Video management solution,â€ said Dr Oliver Vellacott, CEO. â€œAutomating the real time detection of incidents frees up valuable operator resource and having the same set of tools available to analyze large volumes of recorded footage dramatically reduces the time to locate critical events, enabling timely response to emergency situations.â€
IndigoVisionâ€™s new analytics include:
- Congestion Detection
- Motion Detection
- Abandoned Object Detection
- Counter Flow
- Virtual Tripwire
- Shape-Based Detection
- Object Tracking and Theft Detection.
All of these can be run in real-time at the camera or post-event on recorded video.
Real time analytics run in the 8000 Transmitters connected to analog cameras and in IndigoVisionâ€™s dedicated high-end IP domes. This significantly reduces bandwidth requirements on the network and ensures the system is totally scalable. Pre-determined events are identified as they happen, at any camera, and can drive the virtual matrix, e.g. display a salvo on a bank of monitors.
Using â€˜Control Centerâ€™ software, recorded footage stored on IndigoVisionâ€™s networked video recorders (NVRs) can be analyzed using the same algorithms. Post processing allows operators to run many different scenarios on recorded video, e.g. look for cars parked for a certain time. Enabling analytics in both real-time and post-event modes offers the best of both worlds, using analytics to identify events as they occur, and also providing advanced search tools for operators to analyze previous situations.
