New metadata framework makes searching video 1,000 times faster.
In collaboration with the
"We are very proud to see this project bearing fruit already. We are still in phase one and expect to present to the market several new solutions for searching in metadata - the framework has already been released in XProtect 2014. During the next phases, we will do research among other things on how the software can learn to distinguish between normal and abnormal activity in video images. This means video surveillance can proactively give an alert before an incident occurs, and further enable use as a business tool in many more operational scenarios," says
"For example, if there is an accident or an assault at a bus station, the police or security personnel can search for the exact area where the incident happened by linking GPS coordinates with the video recordings from the buses, and within a few seconds they will have the relevant recording of the offender or other people involved," he continues.
Speedier Searches = Faster Response The new software capabilities have also made searching much faster in general, and for specific objects in the recorded video material. This could be, for example, a wanted blue car that was parked at a distance of 200 meters from the
The metadata technology can also be used with mobile phones as moving security cameras where GPS coordinates and compass information can be stored with the video. Operators thereby will know precisely where the video was recorded. Used in this way, mobile phones can increase security and safety, and threatening behavior can easily be proven. The technology can also be used as evidence of pollution emissions, for resolving insurance claims, or many other applications yet to be explored.
Skovgaard sums it up: "The possibilities are endless with the constant developments of our video software technology. We can see that there will be a flood of new solutions from our many partners, building further on the open platform video surveillance from Milestone."
