BriefCam case study in Security Management

Case Study: A Wrinkle in Time "In 1969, a Norwalk, Connecticut, dairy farmer named Stew Leonard had an epiph­­any: the milk delivery business was going to go the way of the horse and buggy. Leonard decided to found a small dairy shop with seven employees and carrying just eight items. The little market quickly grew into the world’s largest dairy store. Today, Stew Leonard’s Farm Fresh Foods are located in Norwalk, Danbury, and New­ington, Connecticut; and Yonk­ers, New York.

Tour d'horizon de ces techniques sécuritaires. Un homme déambule entre les allées d'un parking et s'attarde « anormalement » près d'une voiture. A 3 kilomètres de là, devant son mur d'écrans relié à une trentaine de caméras, un opérateur se lasse de voir passer des anonymes et s'assoupit. Mais un signal d'alarme attire son attention sur l'écran 15, où la silhouette du maraudeur est cerclée de rouge. Si l'opérateur en croit l'« intelligence » de la caméra, cet homme s'apprête à voler un véhicule. Il avertit donc la police, qui sera sur les lieux cinq minutes plus tard." [Read full article...]

SDI: What Video Synopsis Means to Integrators (editorial)

Tool for rapid video review adds value to surveillance deployments Having hundreds or even thousands of cameras deployed in municipalities, school campuses, healthcare and other vertical markets is not uncommon. In fact, it's becoming the norm and most people have become accustomed to having cameras in a host of public places.

And we all know about operator fatigue when it comes to watching banks of video monitors 24/7. A unique and unprecedented enabling technology by BriefCam uses a software-based algorithm called Video Synopsis (VS) to allow users to "browse hours in minutes" by creating a summary of the original video to enable rapid review of the surveillance activities...
