TAKING HIGH RESOLUTION VIDEO TO THE CLOUD SMART COMPRESSION COMPRESSION BY A FURTHER 90% ON TOP OF ALL OTHER COMPRESSION METHODS WITHOUT LOSS OF IMPORTANT DETAIL FROM IOMNISCIENT

Overview: New Cameras have increasingly high resolution. Today it is impractical to transmit video from a large number of high resolution video streams to the Cloud with the internet bandwidth that is available today even in most advanced countries. You then have a choice. You can transmit and record your video in the resolution of the camera – which requires an enormous amount of bandwidth and storage (and of course one needs fibre or other ultra high bandwidth network) Or You can transmit and record at a lower resolution which means that you have lost the detail that their cameras can pr

The new patented Smart Compression from iOmniscient solves this dilemma for you. It records every face, license number and significant event that is seen in the camera in high resolution while the rest of the video is recorded at low resolution. In every single frame of the video you never miss anything that is important. Equally you dont waste bandwidth and storage on anything that is unimportant. To enable Cloud Computing with high resolution cameras one needs enormous bandwidth to stream the video. With iOmniscient’s Smart Compression you can stream very low resolution video even while so

The Issues: Consider a user who installs a 2 mega-pixel camera. He can record the video at 2 mexa-pixels or he could reduce the image size and record at 1xCIF (equivalent to 0.1 megapixel). If he records at 2 megapixels (mp), it takes an enormous amount of storage and requires significant bandwidth for transmission. However, much of this resource is wasted as the network will be transmitting and the recording system will be recording a lot of useless information continuously because he does not wish to miss the small amount of important information that may be there. If he records at 1xCIF

The retail industry operates in a crowded environment with many separate events occurring simultaneously. The top priority for the retail industry is to increase sales. To achieve this, retailers need to have a good understanding of the flow of people through the shopping center to enhance customer service and use as a tool for marketing. Shopping Centers are constantly busy with people, therefore they are susceptible to terrorist attacks. For this reason, it is important to be able to find any abandoned objects which could potentially be dangerous, such as a bomb.

MAKING money instead of SPENDING money on your Surveillance System - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

MAKING money instead of SPENDING money on your Surveillance System

When an organization implements a “Surveillance System” it is always an expense item – a cost which the organization feels they have to bear to minimize their risk. However most surveillance systems are only useful after an event (and usually long after the event) and then the user has to spend even more manpower to do a lengthy and time consuming search. Hence, such systems which can essentially only record and display do not usually reduce the risk to any significant extent. So the organization spends money but does not actually reduce its risk.

But it does not have to be that way.

Adding analytics converts the system from one that is only useful after the event into one which can help you manage an event and at times prevent the event. The analytics can be set up so that there is virtually no incremental cost (ask us about our Smart VMS which enables this). Why would one implement a dumb system which cannot reduce risk when one can get an intelligent and useful one at the same price?
Smart analytics can actually generate a positive and tangible Return on Investment. Below are just 3 examples of customers making money or saving money using their Analytics system:
β€’ A local government organization was receiving complaints about people slipping and falling at the rate of 5 per week. They used to just pay the person a few thousand dollars to avoid litigation. With the system in place they were able to respond immediately, provide tender loving care and thus avoid having to make a payout. This also reduced their insurance costs significantly.
β€’ A shopping mall uses their security system to calculate the dwell time of shoppers (ie the amount of time a person spent in an area). The system can also track big spenders and VIPs in an anonymized way without infringing on their privacy. Based on this they understand the travel and spending patterns of shoppers within their facility. They then use this to attract new retailers. They have been able to charge a premium price for some locations based on this information.
β€’ A major commercial building used to have a large control room which was continuously manned. With our Automated Response system the security officers can now wander about and when there is an incident that requires their attention the officer nearest to the incident gets information of the event on his Smart Phone with instructions on where to go. His phone becomes a mobile control room. This has resulted in a massive saving in manpower and in real estate and significantly improved efficiency with just a click on his walking control room.

Make sure your system is not a sink hole for your money. Use it to save money or to make money.
