Rather than continuously recording data, a VMS may also implement motion detection to reduce the amount of data to be recorded. In older analog security camera systems, the cameras were "dumb" devices only capable of producing a video signal continuously, and any video signal processing had to be done by the recording VMS. With modern megapixel network cameras, the cameras are much more sophisticated. Motion detection can now be distributed, so that the cameras do motion detection themselves and only send video when motion is detected. Alternately, motion detection can still also occur in t

A VMS can be the software component of a network video recorder and digital video recorder, though in general a VMS tends to be more sophisticated and provide more options and capabilities than a packaged NVR device. Due to improvements in technology, it is necessary to make a distinction between a VMS and the built-in features of modern network based security cameras. Many modern network cameras offer internal capabilities to record and review video directly themselves via a web browser and without the use of a VMS. However a camera's built-in web interface is typically exclusive to the came

A video management system, also known as video management software or a video management server, is a component of a security camera system that in general: Collects video from cameras and other sources Records / stores that video to a storage device Provides an interface to both view the live video, and access recorded video

While business analytics has a more broad focus on the who, what, where and when of business intelligence, behavioral analytics narrows that scope, allowing one to take seemingly unrelated data points in order to extrapolate, predict and determine errors and future trends. It takes a more holistic and human view of data, connecting individual data points to tell us not only what is happening, but also how and why it is happening.

Behavioral analytics utilizes the massive volumes of raw user event data captured during sessions in which consumers use application, game, or website, including traffic data like navigation path, clicks, social media interactions, purchasing decisions and marketing responsiveness. Also, the event-data can include advertising metrics like click-to-conversion time, as well as comparisons between other metrics like the monetary value of an order and the amount of time spent on the site. These data points are then compiled and analyzed, whether by looking at session progression from when a user f

Behavioral analytics is a recent advancement in business analytics that reveals new insights into the behavior of consumers on eCommerce platforms, online games, web and mobile applications, and IoT. The rapid increase in the volume of raw event data generated by the digital world enables methods that go beyond typical analysis[promotional language] by demographics and other traditional metrics that tell us what kind of people took what actions in the past. Behavioral analysis focuses on understanding how consumers act and why, enabling accurate predictions about how they are likely to act in

Alarm I/O - A VMS may provide the ability to monitor alarm inputs and act on them in some manner, including: Sending alarm outputs to activate ancillary equipment such as lighting Beginning recording on one or more camera sources Sending an alert message to one or more people, via email, cellphone SMS, or over the Internet to a client application or mobile phone app. Alarm inputs and outputs can be handled through separate interface components

Video content analysis (also video content analytics, VCA) is the capability of automatically analyzing video to detect and determine temporal and spatial events. This technical capability is used in a wide range of domains including entertainment, health-care, retail, automotive, transport, home automation, flame and smoke detection, safety and security. The algorithms can be implemented as software on general purpose machines, or as hardware in specialized video processing units. Many different functionalities can be implemented in VCA. Video Motion Detection is one of the simpler forms wh

iQ Events - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

iQ Events

The Olympics, the World Expo, the Commonwealth Games, World Youth Day, major exhibitions, soccer matches – even the Food and Wine Festival in the local community all involve managing crowds. Large numbers of people gather together and it is left to the organisers and the Police to manage the law and order situation in such events.

The first thing that organisers want to know is how many people attended an event. This helps them to market the event in the following year. Counting may also be important to prevent overcrowding. Every year at the Hajj in Mecca, large numbers of people are trampled to death due to poor crowd management. Video Analysis can provide the authorities with information on the size of the crowd and which way it is moving. This can allow them to take appropriate measures such as opening up new exits or helping to channel the crowd in new directions.

During the event the authorities have to cope with illegal parking, graffiti, hawkers and misbehaving people. After the event they have to clean up the
facilities. All the basic applications may also apply at these events. For instance athletes at the Games villages need to be protected from intruders. Special equipment or artifacts need to be protected from theft at exhibitions. A good system can help the authorities implement a safer event specially in view of the large number of people involved.

An Event may be run on a small scale such as one conducted within a hall or a small theatre. Or it could also be a city wide event (e.g. the Olympics, or the World Cups). Typical applications for different aspects of an event are shown in the below:

Security
• Intrusion and Perimeter Protection
• Tailgating system for restricted zones
• Access Control using facial recognition
• Left Object Detection

Operations
• VIP Access Management
• Queue management
• Understand occupancy and ensure safety regulations are met
• Speed control
• Prevention of illegal parking
• Detection of hawkers and beggars
• Surveillance System healthcheck to prevent camera tampering or sabotage

Safety
• Detecting someone who has fallen down
• Detecting water spills
• Detecting Smoke and Fire (since conventional smoke detection systems cannot be effective in areas with high ceilings and outdoors)

And many more…
