What can Video Analytics Do For Me?
Video surveillance is a booming business, and installations
become larger and larger. At the same time, several studies have highlighted
the hit and miss nature of human intervention to spot change in a surrounding
environment. And the challenge becomes larger as systems expand. In addition, a
massive amount of video is being recorded, but never watched or reviewed, due
to lack of time.
As a result, security personnel are faced with an
overwhelming volume of video and data, making it difficult to pinpoint events
of genuine importance. The NVM2000
multivendor network video management software from Inscape Data Corporation
with video analytics help organizations make sense of these vast amounts of
video and data for better decisions and faster, more effective action. Video
analytics enhance situational awareness and transform threat detection from a
manual, resource-intensive operation to an efficient, accurate, automated
process. With NVM2000 network video management solution, security staff can
focus on deterring and managing threats, rather than scanning banks of video
monitors trying to detect them.
Intelligent video is about reducing the vast amount of
information contained in video, making it more manageable for systems and security
personnel's. Intelligent video
surveillance systems automatically perform an analysis of captured video and
automate actions or tasks allowing security personnel to be more alert and
aware of situations to make better decisions, especially in high-risk
The NVM2000 network video management software performs
video analytics ranging from video motion detection to more advanced analysis including
camera tampering detection and people counting.
The NVM2000 can also integrate with retail point of sales system to
effectively monitor cash register transactions.
Benefits of Video Analytics
Video analytics allows video surveillance systems to be
smarter, more accurate, and more cost-effective. The NVM2000 with video
analytics provides the following benefits:
video and automate actions and tasks in real-time
video recording, alarms or other actions
operators or field personnel
users to be proactive - preventing crime rather than reacting or analyzing
after the fact
Systems can be set up to deliver far more targeted and
specific information with video analytics then systems without it. Going forward, there will be far less
reliance on human effort. Video analytics also creates a platform for efficient
and proactive measures. By configuring
intelligent video systems to specific parameters, it is possible to get instant
alerts when pre-set parameters have been breached, thus delivering early
warnings to security personnel.
Reduced storage needs
Intelligent video systems like the NVM2000 with video
analytics minimize the need for storage space by recording only video that
contains activity. Intelligent video applications help build video surveillance
systems that are more cost-effective.
Efficient use of resources
Video Analytics enables efficient use of resources. Fewer security personnel can monitor even
very large installations, since staff will not be required to watch many
monitors for long hours to spot suspicious activity. Instead, the NVM2000 with
video analytics system would inform operators about people moving in restricted
areas, vehicles going the wrong way, or attempts to tamper with the video
Speed up stored video retrieval
Video analytics, such as video motion detection, foreign
objects, or missing objects, ensures that only relevant prerecorded video footage
is stored, so that when the need arises to search through old recordings, only
video that could potentially include the event in question is retrieved. Video analytics can search through days of
stored video to find the right video footage in a matter of seconds.
Intelligent Video Surveillance with NVM2000
Inscape Data Corporation, the leading outdoor network
appliance company is committed to provide scalable total turn-key video surveillance
solution including a host of IP video fixed and PTZ camera hardware and free or
licensed video management software. The
NVM2000 licensed video management solution with video analytics, intelligently
support operators with live video contents analysis or post recording processing which tackles real-world video surveillance challenges.
Motion detection is primarily used to reduce the amount of
video that is stored, by tagging video that has changes and eliminating video
in which nothing changes. By only
storing video in which changes occur, recorded video maybe stored for longer
period of time. Motion Detection is
built into Inscape Data Corporation's IP video camera and network video
Camera occlusion can occur from an object obstructing the
cameras view, spray paint, or hand over camera.
In all cases, it is important for the security personnel to be aware of
potential risks involved with camera occlusion.
Actions like sounding an alert or highlighting the video of the tampered
camera makes the job easier for the security personnel.
Foreign Object video analytics feature detects foreign
objects. This feature is advantageous in
video surveillance where a prohibited area or valuable item is under 24-7
surveillance. Once an intruder enters a
video camera's view guarded by foreign object video analytics, actionable events
maybe setup to alert the security personnel immediately.
Fixed cameras, over time, may loose its lens focus. When this does happen, the recorded video
footage becomes blurred and usually not usable as evidence. The lose focus video analytics feature allow
for early detection and maintenance of video cameras out of focus.
IP or CCTV cameras may stop streaming live video feeds if
there is fault in the camera hardware or transmission medium. In both cases,
lost of video signal to the video recorder will happen. With the signal lost video analytics feature,
security personnel are alerted instantly when a video camera loses its video
signal. This allows the appropriate
persons to be notified to further investigate the issue.
People counting, especially in retail environments, is one
of the primary applications for object counting video analytics because it
provides a wealth of data to assist store managers in optimizing store layout
and customer service. One-way or two-way
object counting feature available with the NVM2000 maybe used to generate
business intelligence to increase profitability in addition to deterrence and
All of the NVM2000 video analytics features may trigger up
to ten actionable events such as sound an alert, dial a phone number, send an
email, locate the camera on the E-Map, enlarge the camera view, trigger a relay
contact, and many more.
Going forward, the trend in video surveillance is utilizing
video analytics to decrease operational cost and increase surveillance
efficiency. Inscape Data Corporation is
dedicated to providing our loyal customer with intelligent solutions to bring
wealth of new business and surveillance opportunities. For more information on the licensed NVM2000 video
