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

Smart Schools & Universities - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

Smart Schools & Universities

Schools have a large number of students and teachers. They can be extremely crowded during school hours and completely empty after hours. Children and young adults are unfortunately vulnerable to kidnapping and assaults, and many times this happens as they are leaving the school premises at a quieter hour when the majority of the students have left. To protect the students, it is important to watch out for people behaving suspiciously around the premises.

Many schools now have expensive equipment, such as computers, which make them a target for theft. In addition to this, graffiti and vandalism are an often incidence at schools and the premises needs to be protected from intruders to prevent these events from occurring.

Why iOmniscient’s iQ-Schools?
iQ-Schools is a comprehensive portfolio of applications that that can fulfill each departments specific requirement, while operating as a single integrated system to ensure quick distribution of information to all concerned when any event occurs.

iQ-Schools has a sophisticated behavior analysis application to detect suspicious behavior from individuals, such as loitering, running, and man-down, to prevent kidnapping and assaults.

To prevent theft from occurring, iQ-Schools has a powerful perimeter protection system which can see far distances and in the dark. This can be used to stop all intruders from accessing the premises after hours which is when theft generally occurs.

iQ-Schools has a graffiti and vandalism detection which is able to jump back to when the event occured to see who the criminal was and identify them using many-to-many face recognition.

Automated Surveillance Action Platform (ASAP):
iQ-Schools is armed with iOmniscient’s unique Nuisance Alarm Minimization System (NAMS) which can cope with the complex and crowded scenes that exist in the real world, thus ensuring reliable results. Coupled with iOmniscient’s patented iQ-Hawk technology, which simultaneously detects events and identifies people and vehicles on the same camera, iQ-Schools can deliver an automated response system which can then be tightly linked into the user’s own processes.

Applications

Security
• Detect and track suspects or criminals accompanied with many-to-many facial recognition system
• Theft prevention system to protect valuable property (e.g. in computer rooms, library, convocation halls)
• Graffiti and Vandalism detection
• Detection of man-down or fighting behaviour accompanied with both video and voice recognition system. Detection of other abnormal behaviour (e.g. running, loitering etc) particularly after hours
• Perimeter protection and to prevent unauthorised access after hours
• Surveillance system health check to prevent camera tampering or sabotage

Operations
• Adhere with fire regulation and maximum people allowed in the classroom or in the convocation hall particularly during special events
• Better car park management particularly during special events with the use of counting, License Plate Recognition system, Tailgating system, Wrong Way, Parking Violation Detection etc
• Efficient Lost and found process with the use of abandoned object detection
• Energy savings – able to understand the occupancy so as to efficiently adjust the electricity level (e.g. the lights can be dimmed or turned off for areas that have no more students in there. Additional lights can be turned when there are more people)

Safety
• Smoke and Fire detection. Conventional smoke detection cannot be effective in areas with high ceilings
• Crowd management and control during special events
• Detection of water spill
• Detection of slip and fall for public liability or man-down detection
• Prevent vehicle speeding within school zones
