Needless to say, video analytics are now in high demand among users, who can benefit from a range of video analytics products that are in the market today.
Video analytics have gained importance over the years, amid a rise in camera count worldwide. “The number of video security cameras being utilized is increasing at a high rate, yet the number of security personnel has not increased at the same rate, resulting in an average range of 25 to 50 cameras (or more) being monitored by each security person,” said a recent blogpost by 3S Integration. “Different security guards may have differing levels of focus or different ideas of suspicious activity. Research in the United States has shown that human observers of video systems start showing signs of fatigue in as little as 12 minutes, overlooking up to 45 percent of activity in the camera scenes. After 22 minutes, that increases up to 95 percent of overlooked activity.”
This is where video analytics can come in to help, according to the post.
“Video analytics leverages your software to monitor video feeds 24/7/365, alerting your staff to pre-defined activity, so they will only need to watch the cameras when something happens. This will help you best utilize your surveillance system, saving you time and effort and creating increased business value by delivering more specific and targeted information,” it said. “Analytics can also be used during recording and search operations, allowing personnel to search recorded video for certain event types. This enables you to quickly locate an incident, thereby saving valuable time.”
Types of analytics that are available
According to the post, each solution will work differently depending upon the manufacturer. “However, they all work in the same basic way – you set up certain parameters for the activity to look for, set up an alert notification system, and then when the activity that meets your search criteria is detected, the software alerts you,” it said.
That said, the post summarizes the different types of video analytics available today as follows:
“By analyzing surveillance video in real-time, video analytics will make your system more efficient and reduce the fatigue on your security staff, making your system more cost-effective and easier to manage,” the post said. “Leveraging analytics technology can enable a single individual to monitor many more cameras and reduce the amount of missed critical events, therefore enabling a prompt response making it possible to prevent a crime rather than just respond to it after the incident.”
