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

St Joseph’s Hospital - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

St Joseph’s Hospital

iOmniscient and St Vincents Group have partnered with each other to create a safer environment for aged loved ones. We have achieved this through the implementation of smart, efficient, and affordable IQ solutions.

  • For those who were feeble and yet mobile, the highest risk was that they might fall down when they were alone particularly in the bathroom. It could sometimes take hours before a fall was detected. The victim could have broken a hip or be in enormous pain.
  • Body worn devices could provide some level of fall detection but old people often forgot to carry the device. For privacy reasons it did not make sense to put cameras in places like bathrooms.
  • iOmniscient put together a solution involving a special depth sensing camera which could accurately detect falls viewing only the personʼs silhouette. An alarm is immediately sent to the carer ensuring a much faster response than had previously been possible.

The St Vincents Group is one of the foremost providers of Aged Care in Australia. They are in a continuous search for technologies and methods for improving the services they provide to those in their care in parallel with a search for productivity improvements to keep their costs down.

  • Old persons also often slept a lot on sofas or beds. It was important for the carer to ensure that there was some occasional movement and that the person had not died. The same depth sensing camera was used to keep a watchful eye on the patient without being intrusive.
  • Perhaps the biggest challenge was in the dementia wards where patients often escaped and then did not know how to get back. In these wards it was important to allow free movement to staff and visitors but to ensure that dementia patients did not wander off. iOmniscientʼs Face Recognition system for uncontrolled environments ensured that an alarm was raised if a patient attempted to leave the premises.

The system was first tried out at the Hutchinson Disease Ward of the St Josephʼs Hospital in Sydeny. Sufferers from this illness lose muscle control and can fall down often. Helen Miller, General Manager for the St Vincentʼs Aged Care Services said that the families of patients were delighted at the increased responsiveness and care provided to their sick relatives. The major risk factors were addressed without putting pressure on staff who were already stretched.
