CHANGING THE VIDEO SURVEILLANCE DATA GAME
BALANCING SERVICE, ACCESS & SECURITY
Video analytics enhance video surveillance systems by performing the tasks of real-time event detection, post-event analysis and extraction of statistical data while at the same time saving manpower costs and increasing the effectiveness of the surveillance system operation.
Through the implementation of various image processing algorithms, video analytics can detect a variety of events, in real-time, such as:
- Penetration of unauthorized people / vehicles into restricted areas
- Tailgating of people / vehicles through secure checkpoints
- Traffic obstacles
- Unattended objects
- Vehicles stopped in no-parking zones, highways or roads
- Removal of assets
- Crowding or grouping
And much more.
Video analytics help simplify operations, lower costs (by freeing up security personnel), optimize resources, improve scalability and speed deployment of new processes and equipment.
The Power of Integrated Video Intelligence
By fully integrating video surveillance and analytics with other security systems, such as access control, field operations and panic alarms, an organization’s response and decision-making capabilities can be more streamlined than ever before. When traditional security technologies are leveraged in combination with emerging systems—such as social media, GIS mapping and databases—the result is actionable intelligence.
For example, after a large healthcare organization adopted a situation management platform, they were able to integrate all of their safety and security systems, including video, access control, computer-aided dispatch, and operator radios and phones. Now, operators have better visibility into the entire healthcare campus, and can better leverage each system’s unique capabilities. Since all data is available in one place, threats are mitigated and field resources are also optimized.
