Bosch introduces a complete new lineup of intelligent cameras within its midrange portfolio. The all-new fixed dome (FLEXIDOME) and bullet (DINION) IP 4000i, IP 5000i and IP 6000i cameras now have Essential Video Analytics built in as a standard (intelligent) feature. This enables these network video cameras to understand what they’re seeing, generating metadata to add sense and structure to the video footage. Instead of simply capturing and storing video data, users can now use the metadata alongside the video footage to improve their level of security and make smarter business decisions using a wealth of statistics.
Arteco has added intelligent face recognition capabilities to its suite of video event management solutions to allow organizations to gain more intelligent data from investments in video surveillance platforms. Arteco Face Recognition (AFR) delivers rapid, accurate and scalable face recognition capabilities to meet evolving security and safety needs. Its powerful algorithms address common challenges in analytics, such as lighting, pose, occlusions, motion, crowds and expression.
Until now, level of detail has been the key quality parameter for surveillance cameras, as clear images at all times was the most important feature for high security. True, security personnel must see all relevant information in great detail to react quickly and take appropriate action. But what if a moving object leaves the camera’s field of view? The AUTODOME IP family of pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras is the answer. These enable users manually to keep track of persons of interest as they move – even at speed, far beyond a fixed camera’s field of view.
Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi™) announced that it has joined NVIDIA’s Metropolis Software Partner Program.

Meet Sgt. O’Hare of the Hartford PD who used BriefCam to locate and arrest a suspected child predator just last week at the BriefCam booth at ASIS 2017 in Dallas.

Police said the incident took place on Stonington Street in Hartford. A concerned citizen helped the little girl and called police.
The widespread use of facial recognition technology is almost upon us. The new iPhone is available with FaceID where you can unlock your phone with your face. Facial recognition is not new. It’s been a sci-fi staple for decades, and its practical roots are in the 1960s with Palo Alto researchers on RAND Tablets manually mapping out people’s features. Even back then we could give a computer enough data to be able to match a person to a their photograph.
