EXPANDED AND ENHANCED FUNCTIONALITIES
From its beginnings in relatively straightorward videosurveillance applications, video has evolved into multi-aceted video security systems thatdeliver more proactive public saety and servicescapabilities. Video security includes three majorunctionalities, enabling you to:
CAPTURE AND TRANSPORT
Video security encompasses the basic capture andtransport o video surveillance images and data.
MANAGE AND CORRELATE
Video security includes breakthrough managementcapabilities such as intelligent video analytics andcorrelation o video to other data.
DEPLOY AND ACT
Video security solutions enable proactive deployment,simplied personnel shiting and other ways o makingvideo inormation more actionable.
REAL-TIME VIDEO IN MORE PLACES
The new proactive video security solutions o todayand tomorrow are driven by the move to digitalcameras and IP-based network connectivity. Thepower and fexibility o IP-based video technologiesnow give video applications the crucial ability to costeectively distribute real-time video to many dierentplaces, providing immediate data and analysis thatcan dramatically improve the saety and eectivenesso police, re, EMS, public works and other municipaland government personnel. At the same time, videosecurity enables advanced new capabilities such asvoice, video and data integration that consolidateand correlate all available data on a specicevent, coordinating and delivering more and betterinormation… all in real time.
Advanced video analytics enable systems to not onlycapture what’s happening at given locations, but alsoto automatically interpret the inormation the video iscapturing. Analytics rules engines use pre-determinedcriteria to analyze event and parameter data rom avariety o sources. Using combinations o sophisticatedalgorithms and communications protocols, analyticssotware makes it easy to customize video capture,recording and analysis. Public saety and otherdepartments can congure the system to record andrecognize specied content. Is there motion where thereshould be none, such as on the perimeter o a acility?Is there an object where no object should be, such asunattended luggage in an airport terminal? Is there nomovement where there should be movement, such as avehicle parked in a location or too long a period? Videoanalytics enables aster problem recognition, whichleads to more ecient, more eective problem solving.
Once live video has been analyzed and interpreted,intelligent automation systems can make decisions onthe most appropriate response based on pre-denedrules. Automated responses include actions like alertinga dispatcher o specic situations such as large crowdor trac buildups. They can also include commands tointelligent devices, such as directing video cameras topan/tilt/zoom and begin recording in the direction o anevent. For example, when a re alarm sounds, camerasnearest the location can automatically send video tothe control center, which can instantly stream the videoto re vehicles en route, enabling re ghters to betterassess the situation beore they arrive. Or a police car’sdashboard camera can be set to automatically beginrecording when the vehicle’s siren or lights are turnedon. Expanding capabilities will allow intelligent digitalcameras to work together in concert, enabling, orexample, the automatic tracking o a suspect movingrom camera to camera.
VIDEO SECURITY FUNDAMENTALS
What’s the defnition o video security?
Video security systems are end-to-end high-speed network architectures that deliver expanded and enhanced video-based unctionalitiesdriven by a variety o highly sophisticated technology tools. Video security solutions makevideo smarter, aster and more proactive. The undamentals: the use o powerul analyticcapabilities, automated intelligence throughout the network, seamless interoperability andcommon, intuitive end user interaces.
Advanced videoanalytics enablesystems to not onlycapture what’shappening at givenlocations, but also to automaticallyinterpret theinformation thevideo is capturing.
