Port Tampa Bay Selects PlateSmart’s ARES Enterprise LPR Solution

By Tom Reeve on March 5, 2014 The developers behind Jabbakam, the cloud-based online video surveillance and security system, have redeveloped and re-launched the product as a corporate-grade surveillance solution under the name Cloudview. I sat down with Cloudview founder James Wickes recently to find out why he thinks his solution will revolutionise the corporate security market. Jabbakam was developed in 2010 as a video management system to allow people to record CCTV surveillance video to an internet server and view the footage online. It also allows users to network IP cameras together and share the footage either privately or with a wider audience. The Jabbakam VMS works with its own brand cameras or a selected range of IP cameras from companies such as Y-Cam and Axis. Despite being designed primarily for the domestic market, Jabbakam attracted a great deal of interest from the corporate market, Wickes said. “On the basis of that, we developed Cloudview and changed the company name.” With Cloudview, the product is first and foremost an analogue camera solution. Using a Cloudview video network adapter (VNA), users can stream analogue cameras to the cloud storage system using automatic event triggers or manual activation. The VNA includes a built-in video encoder, SD card slot for local storage and network adapter as well as a USB slot for plugging in a wireless network adapter or 3G wifi device. Simples Wickes said that Jabbakam had taught him the importance of keeping things simple. “The key challenges highlighted through […]

The Israeli Video Analytics Conference

Conference guests Conference guests We know how to install thousands of advanced cameras that cover open and closed, safe and secured areas. We know how to store massive amounts of video footage. The question is how can we use all that information in order to produce useful information? What exactly do you do with all the footage you recorded? This was the focus of the second Video Analytics Conference, which took place today at the IAF Center in Herzlia, Israel, organized by the iHLS news website. “What exactly is video analytics ?” asked Arie Fishbein, former IDF Artillery Corps chief and head of the Iron Dome project in Elta. According to him birds and animals have been using video analysis for millions of years. The hawk can distinguish a tiny rodent at great heights, but humans have trouble making sense of recorded video footage. The most significant element are the sensors, and integrating sensors into security systems provides us with a powerful analytical tool, helping us detect significant events in the ocean of data we recorded. Arie Fishbein Avi Yariv, one of the owners and directors of iHLS , gave the keynote address. According to Mr. Yariv tens of thousands of security cameras are installed all over the world, but their installation alone doesn’t actually help us in any way. “Cameras can’t stop crime or terror.” The challenge is the development of technologies that can use the raw data and provide users with useful information, helping us stop criminals […]
