Geutebruck’s new G-Tect/VMX – professional detection, smart and simple
Geutebruck’s new G-Tect/VMX – professional detection, smart and simple

Geutebruck’s G-Tect/VMX is a new video motion detection solution for professional use, which is both extremely quick to set up and exceptionally reliable. It not only detects movement but differentiates between potentially relevant moving objects and background changes. G-Tect/VMX continuously analyses and evaluates all picture contents, and regularly adjusts its ‘understanding’ of the background. Thanks to the latest smart algorithms which continually adapt to the current image contents, G-Tect/VMX offers unprecedented accuracy at suppressing unwanted alarms caused by systematically occurring environmental effects such as moving foliage, rain, snow or headlights. It recognises these images changes resulting from weather as a systematically occurring background changes and therefore tolerates them.  Setting up a sterile zone where any intruder triggers an alarm is a simple mouse-clicking operation.  Configuring direction-dependent detection for a zone is quick and easy too. You can then copy settings across to other alarm zones and cameras with similar site conditions, for example to set up a series of cameras to monitor a fence. Finally there is a single intuitive global sensitivity control to optimize all the settings. – This minimalist design approach to system settings slashes the time required for system installation and makes it predictable. G-Tect/VMX is designed for seamless integration in the Geutebruck system world and comes with licence-free activation of Geutebruck’s classic VMD detector, to enable legendary dual sensor operation and the best possible protection of critical areas. Also being unveiled alongside this detection solution is Geutebruck’s new G-Tect/MoP pixelating function which maintains data protection privacy for public access areas by automatically masking moving objects in live displays or archived image data while still allowing authorised personnel access to the full image for serious incident investigation and evidential purposes. Other innovations on the Geutebruck stand at Security 2012 include: the G-Scope/1000 range of new compact video platforms for top performance in tight spots; a new range of G-VRaid units; the re_porter-XRdb with a hot swap database as well as G-SIM the exceptionally powerful new video management system for large complex installations.

VCA4IP, Geutebruck’s video content analysis, now available for third party IP cameras
VCA4IP, Geutebruck’s video content analysis, now available for third party IP cameras

Geutebruck video analysis algorithms are already deployed in more than 50,000 digital video cameras round the world.  Now, with its latest software offering, VCA4IP, Geutebruck is making these tried-and-tested professional video content analysis algorithms available for installation in third party IP cameras when used with re_porter or GeViScope CCTV systems. Activity detection (AD), video motion detection (VMD) and Dual-Sensor functions are each available separately by individual licence.  AD provides reliable movement detection for indoor and selected outdoor applications with a very low false alarm rate owing to the effective suppression of environmental influences.  For critical outdoor applications where you want to differentiate between objects of different sizes, movements in different directions and at different speeds, then VMD is the best choice. It can ensure that permitted movements don't trigger unnecessary alarms, by for instance, ignoring vehicles leaving a site, or small animals straying into the scene.  For exceptionally high targeting accuracy and even better suppression of unwanted alarms, Geutebruck's Dual-Sensor uses video motion detection and object classification algorithms in parallel, with alarms only being triggered when both sets of criteria are met.VCA4IP can process resolutions up to several megapixels.  Built-in diagnostics report sabotage and monitor the connection status and contrast levels to avoid the generation of false reports.  Any number of parameter profiles (day/night switches) can be stored for each camera channel.  All camera channels are easily configured in the standard user-friendly set-up screen.

Geutebruck's new 'fading long term memory' slashes the cost of video archiving
Geutebruck's new 'fading long term memory' slashes the cost of video archiving

Geutebruck CCTV systems can now retain high quality video for long periods using only a fraction of the normal storage capacity.  Their new ‘fading long term memory' (FLTM) option reflects the fact that, where different kinds of event are discovered, handled and investigated in different timescales; there is no real need to continue storing video at the full 25 fps for a month or more, if lower frame rates suffice after the first few days.  FLTM software therefore enables you to progressively reduce the frame rate of your stored footage as time goes by, in accordance with your assessment of residual risks.Let's imagine your system has to deal with robbery, vandalism and fraud, and you have to retain a video record for 30 days.  Robberies are discovered and pursued promptly, so within three days all relevant 25 fps footage has been reviewed and backed up.  Vandalism is dealt with in a week and 6-7 fps footage is adequate.  The timescale for fraud is longer but 1 fps provides the necessary evidential detail.  Normally, for high quality real-rime video @ 4Mbit/s, storage per camera would be about 43.2 GB per day, or 1.3 TB for 30 days.  But with FLTM you only need: 3 days @ 25 fps ≈ 130 GB + 4 days @ 6.25 fps ≈ 90 GB (differential compression reduces data by about 50%)+ 23 days @ 1 fps (I-frames only) ≈ 70 GB  A total of only 290 GB per camera - which enables you to make significant hardware savings without any loss of benefit, utility or security.

Geutebruck introduces the next generation of ‘omnibrid’, multi-standard operating software
Geutebruck introduces the next generation of ‘omnibrid’, multi-standard operating software

‘Hybrid was yesterday; the future is omnibrid,' is how Geutebruck is heralding the introduction of its new generation of setup and operating software for GeViStore and GeViScope platforms this spring. Not only does this high performance software support analogue, digital and megapixel cameras as well as ONVIF-compliant IP cameras and even16/9 HD-format ones, but it also enables any M-JPEG and H.264 based standard digital compression processes (including specialist video surveillance ones like MPEG4CCTV, H264CCTV) to be used in the same system. This multi-standard capability means that more than one compression standard can be used in one single system and the end-user is no longer tied to one particular process. And, if a camera signal is not available from the source in the optimised MPEG4CCTV format, then the M-JPEG stream can be trans-coded in real time.From Geutebruck's point of view the arrival of ‘omnibrid' software marks another significant step towards achieving the ultimate goal of producing video security systems which record only those images which are really relevant to the user, and which give him the best possible conditions for extracting the valuable information from them. Geutebruck's video sensors and intelligent video analysis software already offer a reliable and proven means of efficiently selecting, managing, and minimising relevant material for onward transmission and/or recording, while its own specialist, CCTV-friendly, standard-compliant compression processes retain fluid motion, and consequently valuable detail, in situations and processes where the vast majority of other H.264 implementations only hesitate and shudder. However, until now the only IP cameras whose video stream could be processed using Geutebruck's video analysis software have been those few with added functionality.‘Omnibrid' software lifts this restriction and opens the door for much greater flexibility in product selection. It also provides more scope for intelligent data management, enables the use of different compression formats for different purposes, and gives system designers much more scope to achieve optimum customisations.
