FoxCounter is Foxstream’s first solution to benefit from this strategic alliance

Foxstream, the fast growing software company specialising in real-time VCA (Video Content Analysis) is pleased to announce its partnership with Samsung Techwin.

Foxstream’s people counting application can now be run on board Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII cameras and end users can therefore benefit from a high performance counting application which works fully with Samsung’s latest professional camera functions.

Focus on FoxCounter embedded in WiseNetIII cameras:

FoxCounter is Foxstream’s first solution to benefit from this strategic alliance. Based on the FoxVigi counting solution module on server, the embedded version, FoxCounter, answers various needs, from statistics to security issues. Mostly used in places welcoming people, FoxCounter is able to help:

  • Identify attendance peaks
  • Establish reference bases (day/week/month), in order to measure evolutions
  • Inform the operator in real time on the site's occupation rate, according to the maximum accommodation capacity

The dedicated web interface fits perfectly with the Samsung Techwin WiseNetIII cameras' configuration screen, and allows in particular, listing of all the data reported by each camera on the same network. From a simple web browser and by connecting to a single camera, the operator can easily access all the statistics, and know at all times the number of people in a building, even if it has multiple entrances and exits.

Foxstream’s people counting application can now be run on board Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII cameras

Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset is at the heart of the company’s latest generation of 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel high definition video surveillance cameras. The processing power of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset enables it to run multiple edge based Applications such as FoxCounter, as well as video analytics, facial recognition and ANPR solutions, which can be downloaded in a similar way to adding Apps to a Smartphone.  It also offers users the freedom to utilise the video management software (VMS), that best matches specific project requirements.

The WiseNetIII range is perfect for FoxCounter, as it supports P-Iris, which optimizes the iris function when multiple lighting conditions exist in a single scene. This results in images with better contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field. P-Iris makes it easier for FoxCounter to recognise the flow direction. Indeed, FoxCounter performs bi-directionally in a ceiling-mounted camera, offering an easy-to-use and very accurate solution even under varying lighting conditions, such as light movements, shadows, reflections, etc.

Thanks to the WDR function built into the WiseNetIII series that provide enhanced picture quality, motion blur is reduced and clearer images are processed. FoxCounter can therefore refine the counting results, when several people cross the counting area simultaneously, and provide adequate figures.

FoxCounter is ideal for retail, airports, railway stations, museums, theme parks and any place with visitor traffic. It is also an autonomous solution: in case of network cuts, the data is stored directly inside the camera. The integration with third party systems is also simplified by the implementation of standard procedures of data recovery.

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras. During those years, VMSs have evolved from software that provides basic functionality to more user-friendly systems offering a growing list of capabilities, many of them related to analysing data as well as recording and displaying video. But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
