The ability to detect objects and intrusions using various types of cameras and illuminants while ignoring normal environmental conditions
Slew To Cue
Not technically a video algorithm, but the capability to slew a camera or related device directly to an object’s exact position or to precise geospatial coordinates, followed by the activation of various other video analytic functions.
Automatic PTZ Following (Single Camera)
The most advanced, single camera, automatic PTZ following on the market. Designed specifically for outdoor use, this function tracks an objects of interest at varying zoom levels. It has the ability to change object type mid follow (EX. A person entering a vehicle), continue to follow during obstructed views, changing aspects ratios (crawling, walking, etc) and varied speeds (walking, stopping, running).
Detection that a vehicle, or other object of interest has stopped within a defined region.
Background modeling is crucial to every form of analytic behavior intended to be used in outdoor applications. It affords the capability to recognize traits of the background and remove those attributes from the scene. This then allows for analysis of the remaining objects.
Detection within a Region
The use of video analytics becomes more powerful when allowing the ability to add additional requirements to the behavior. For example, the entrance or exit from a defined area, or a specific object type of action occurring in that area.
The ability to count vehicles with directional accuracy, while ignoring pedestrians and environmental conditions.
The ability ignore both attached (from a person, car or similar) and unattached shadows (birds, aircraft, clouds).
Live or Recorded Video
Also referred to as a "forensic browser", this is the ability to also apply analytic algorithms to recorded video. This is very valuable when reviewing video for other events associated with an alarm condition.
