Avigilon continues to develop their artificial intelligence (AI) video analytics portfolio by adding features to their Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology – a sophisticated deep learning AI search engine that sorts through hours of footage with ease. Avigilon recently added the ability to search for vehicles in Avigilon Appearance Search technology, available in the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.2 video management software, to help users gain powerful insights and make effective decisions during an investigation.
As the commercial drone market expands at an accelerating rate, so does the risk of malicious use of these devices and the need to successfully detect and take counter measures. This is the focus of the most recent PureTech Systems patent approval. System and Method for Autonomous PTZ Tracking of Aerial Targets (US Patent No 9,652,860 B1), grants claims for video-based detection and tracking of targets against a featureless background, such as airborne aircraft and drones. The patent leverages the PureTech’s continued research and development using geospatial video analytics for both security and safety applications.
Arecont Vision® has announced an expansion of the Technology Partner Program by adding BriefCam, the Video Synopsis® Company. BriefCam’s video analytics offering is available in the Arecont Vision MegaLab™ as part of the partnership in support of mutual customers. BriefCam Syndex Pro helps organizations improve security and operations by turning video data into useful information. Based on BriefCam’s Video Synopsis technology, Syndex Pro allows users to review hours of video in minutes, while applying search filters for achieving accurate results and faster time-to-target.
Video analytics should be an integrative component of every video management software. NETAVIS Software pioneered this concept over five years ago. With the initiative iCAT Jump Start, iCAT Video Analytics is now included for free with every Observer installation. Besides improving perimeter security, creating heat maps, and providing vital customer frequency data, iCAT also offers highly accurate object counting. The complex tripwire algorithm detects the direction of objects in the video stream, includes a self-learning component, and prevents double counting. This significantly improves the accuracy and solves a wide range of scenarios.
Genetec, a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions will showcase the latest version of AutoVu™ Free-Flow off-street parking management solution at this year’s IPI Conference and Expo in New Orleans, at booth # 1115. Designed to help increase parking enforcement efficiency by providing a real-time inventory of vehicles parked illegally in monitored parking lots, Free-Flow will now be offered within Genetec Security Center, the company’s unified security platform that combines video surveillance, access control and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).
OpenALPR Technology, a leading provider of automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) software, updates its Cloud Stream service by introducing new features which augment license plate recognition and make third party integrations easier. OpenALPR has also added Webhooks to Cloud Stream which will make integrating with third party applications and web services easier. Users can send pre-defined alerts and plate group results to a URL from the Cloud Stream user interface. The Webhooks feature is available for Basic and Professional Cloud Stream users.
The need for enhanced security and demand for gathering insights from customer behavior is driving the video analytics market globally. The market for video analytics is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 20.6% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023. The global video analytics market was valued at US$ 1,709.0 Mn in 2014. Some of the key factors driving the growth of the video analytics market include the expanding range of vertical applications, a growing trend toward bringing retail outlets and commercial premises under video analytics due to security concerns and the need to monitor and understand the environment around the premises.
Avigilon Corporation (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, showcased their new Avigilon Unusual Motion Detection (“UMD”) video analytics technology at ISC West 2017 last week. UMD is an advanced artificial intelligence (“AI”) technology that brings a new level of automation to surveillance. This technology is designed to continuously learn what typical activity in the scene looks like and focus the operator’s attention on atypical events needing further investigation.
StoneLock® Pro’s proprietary near infrared (NIR) technology measures over 2,000 points of reflectivity at the sub-dermal level and creates an encrypted reference file that never contains personally identifiable information (PII), making it less susceptible to typical security and privacy-laden vulnerabilities associated with photo-based facial recognition systems. With an accuracy rate of less than one in a quarter million, (less than 0.0004% False Acceptance Rate) it is ideal for users who recognize the inherent weaknesses of standalone access badges or PINs that can get lost, stolen, or shared.
Avigilon Corporation (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, announced that it will preview the new Avigilon Face and Vehicle Appearance Search video analytics technologies at ISC West 2017, Sands Expo and Convention Center booth 22043, in Las Vegas, USA, from April 5 to 7, 2017. Avigilon is expanding its deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine, Avigilon Appearance Search technology, with two powerful new features that help users save time and effort during critical investigations.
