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.

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...

Questions such as: What?s the point of video recordings if there aren?t enough eyes to review it? What?s the point of cameras if no one?s watching them in real-time? [Click for full article...]

The Economist: Just the interesting bits

A quick way to find incidents recorded by security cameras Video cameras are popping up everywhere. On a typical day out in a big city a person could be filmed by hundreds of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. The combined output of all these systems is far greater than the capacity of security staff to watch all the images. So various ways are used to automate the process. Some systems work in ?real time? to alert security staff to a potential incident being filmed by a camera. Such systems can read number plates on cars and identify certain faces. Several use powerful algorithms to detect suspicious behaviour, such as a group loitering near a door where entry is barred or an item of luggage that seems to have been left unattended. Then there is the task of searching through a mass of recorded images to see if anything has happened...[Read more...]
