New features for Version 1.3 of the BriefCam VS product line include Area of Interest, a sophisticated new user interface and a 65% reduction in synopsis time Download PDF Neve Ilan, Israel, March 10, 2010 ? BriefCam (www.briefcam.com), the developer and provider of Video Synopsis systems for reviewing, analyzing and indexing of surveillance camera content, will launch a new version of its VS product line in time for ISC West 2010. Version 1.3 of BriefCam VS Online and BriefCam VS Forensics includes enhancements to existing features and new functionalities as well as a sleek, sophisticated new Graphic User Interface (images follow below). Video Synopsis is a proprietary image-processing technology that creates a summary of the original full length surveillance video. The synopsis is made possible by simultaneously presenting multiple objects, events and activities that occurred at different times. BriefCam?s VS products enable the rapid review of captured video footage - with an index to the original source video, the online video feed and offline archival video footage - for on-the-spot event tracking, forensics and evidence discovery. Functionality enhancements to Version 1.3 include: Improved time saving factor - synopsis time cut by as much as 65% Area of Interest ? enables user to demarcate a portion of the screen for synopsis Client supports an unlimited number of channels Greater flexibility in increasing/decreasing event density Support for all leading NVR brands VS Online has doubled its processing capacity to 16 channels on a single server VS Forensics supports expanded list of Codecs and video formats BriefCam has ditched the dongle - all products now software license key enabled The true breakthrough, however, is a significant reduction in synopsis time, due to a new algorithm developed by BriefCam. This higher level of ordering can reduce synopsis length by as much as 65%, depending on video recorder type, number of events, and user preferences. ?Version 1.3 continues our policy of continuing to develop new Video Synopsis applications,? said Gideon Ben-Zvi, Chairman, President and Co-founder of BriefCam. ?The reduction in synopsis time means that eight hours of footage, which once might have taken six minutes to browse, can now be watched in three or four. The Area of Interest feature was developed in response to customer demand. Processing capacity is now double on the same hardware. Along with a more pleasing and user-friendly interface, these features all work together to better enable security personnel to browse hours of video in minutes, so that our vision of ?Total Video Review? at the beginning or end of each shift can become part of their daily routine.? BriefCam?s technology partners may also benefit from the Version 1.3 software development kit (SDK) which incorporates all new features while allowing them to retain their own look and feel. BriefCam will be at ISC West 2010, on March 24-26 in Las Vegas with partners Milestone (booth #11051) and OnSSI (booth #8074), whose Ocularis product suite features embedded VS Online functionality.

"My first response was, 'Wow!'" wrote SSI's Steve Payne. "The company?s technology is fascinating to see in action, and a little hard to explain. It compresses video down so you can literally see all the events of a 24-hour period in a matter of seconds, all at the same time. They call it 'synopsizing.'? BriefCam?s Video Synopsis (VS) technology lets users browse hours in minutes by providing a very short video representation of a long time period while preserving all the essential activities of the original video. BriefCam VS Forensics is an essential tool for any investigator or investigative unit, meeting the unmet global need to review countless hours of video generated each day by CCTV cameras, research and identify incidents rapidly, and take necessary action. ?We are delighted that SSI has recognized VS Forensics as one of the Top 30 Technology Innovations for 2009,? said Gideon Ben-Zvi, President, Chairman and Co-founder of BriefCam. ?We launched VS Forensics to meet a need expressed by customers of our VS Online product,? said Ben-Zvi. ?Over and over again, investigators told us about having to wade through countless hours of surveillance footage searching for evidence. We are therefore extremely excited about being able to bring the power of Video Synopsis technology to post-event investigators and investigative units, who have no time to waste and truly need to ?browse hours in minutes?. SSI?s endorsement of VS Forensics is an honor and marks another step towards fulfilling BriefCam?s vision of making total video review a basic part of the daily security routine.? Synopsizing replaces the current ?fast forward? reviewing method, reducing the amount of time and personnel it takes to review video, and resulting in lower storage and manpower costs.

The software is easy to install and can be used out-of-the-box, with no training necessary.
