Ava Unified Security (previously Vaion)

Vaion announced the vcore 1.3 release focused on increasing the collaboration between security operators. With 1.4, Vaion expands its integrated detection and tracking with a new tool: object counting. vcore counts people and vehicles in real-time and allows for downloading historical statistics for analysis and reporting.

Among other features included in this release, Vaion makes it easier for operators to search for specific people or vehicles by allowing them to select these directly from Video view and Map view. They also extend Vaion’s forensic investigations with audio event searching from Vaion vcam devices.

Introduced vehicle tracking

At the end of last year, Vaion introduced vehicle tracking. In Map view with Smart Presence™, their capability powered by computer vision, it identifies and highlights vehicles, in addition to people.

These counts can be done on a single camera, or across multiple cameras covering a larger area

With people and vehicle counting, they can count both the number of live objects currently in view and the number of objects crossing a line over time. For the latter, they separate count crossings in both directions as well as the difference between them. These counts can be done on a single camera, or across multiple cameras covering a larger area.

Parking garage operation managers

Imagine the managers of an office building wanting to get better visibility of day-to-day operations. With people counting covering all entrances, they can immediately determine the number of people inside the building and easily optimise cleaning, heating, and cooling systems.

In stores and public venues, managers can discover the footfall traffic flow at any given time. They can get instant notifications when queues are detected to allocate staff according to the busiest business hours. Additionally, they can use counting to find out which locations perform the best and why. Warehouse operators or parking garage operation managers can also use vehicle counting to investigate the flow of trucks and other vehicles in the busiest hours.

Facilitating advanced analysis

They’ve also made it possible to download and share historical data, allowing flexible selection of the start and end date and time intervals to facilitate advanced analysis. Their latest release allows security operators to carry out a similarity search directly from either the Map view or the Video view.

This makes it easier to search for a specific object or person when in live or playback mode

This makes it easier to search for a specific object or person when in live or playback mode using either of these tools. From the Video view, an operator can simply click the search icon and then choose from the highlighted people and vehicles from within the video frame. On Map view, they can search based on the full video, or select the Smart Presence™ dot on the map to start the search.

Video security market

Vaion recently announces the general availability of Vaion vcam. With integrated directional audio analytics, their devices are pioneers in the video security market. Vaion vcam not only detects unusual sound patterns, but it also alerts operators of their origin.

In vcore 1.4, Vaion allows operators to search for audio events. Search results will show thumbnails of clips. When opened, the video will show the Map view of the sound event, including the source of the noise.
