The recently established technology partnership with Videalert introduces an additional dimension to Wavestore’s ability to be at the heart of seamlessly integrated video surveillance solutions that deliver tangible benefits to police and local authorities.
The level of interoperability achieved between Wavestore’s open platform video management software and Videalert’s Intelligent Digital Traffic Management platform offers local authorities and police a powerful tool to collaborate and share video surveillance infrastructure, whilst achieving a faster return on investment.
Videalert offers intelligent traffic enforcement and management systems to improve road safety and traffic flows within our cities and help reduce crime. The company’s future-proofed solution combines ANPR technology with sophisticated video analytics and as is the case with Wavestore’s open platform VMS, Videalert is able to support both analogue and IP network based ONVIF compliant, high definition megapixel cameras.
Visually verified real-time data
By simultaneously running video analytics and ANPR, Videalert is not dependent on reflective number-plates to capture data and therefore detects more vehicles involved in traffic offences than standard ANPR systems. The visually verified real-time data can assist with the enforcement of moving traffic offences such as bus lanes, banned turns and box junction infringements, whilst also providing a cost-effective and reliable method of detecting incidents and relaying the information to a city’s traffic control centre, where operators can view, via the Wavestore VMS, live video images or review recorded images of any incident.
Wavestore’s ability to support the Videalert Digital Video Platform means that local authorities and police can monitor major routes and generate accurate journey time information to tackle growing congestion across a city. The captured data can be used for traffic modelling purposes in order to optimise the design of future transport schemes, and at the same time can provide support for crime prevention initiatives and investigations.
“We are very excited about this announcement. The integration of our technologies fully complements and enhances our strategy for enabling our clients to run multiple CCTV applications from a single platform,” said Tim Daniels, Sales and Marketing Director for Videalert Ltd. “This will provide added value to our customers seeking an integrated approach for improving road safety, traffic flows and reducing crime in our cities”
