Developers have made huge strides in the effectiveness, convenience, and reliability of the technologies used in video surveillance AxxonSoft 2014/2015 Review and Forecast:Video technology began with simple CCTV systems, but these systems have gradually become more sophisticated, offering both scene analytics and forensic post-analysis. The payoff is found in today's smart security systems. Video analytics are in use today in real-world conditions – on motorways, underground systems, railroads, stadiums, factories, and as part of Safe City projects. Simultaneously, great strides have been made in integrating video surveillance systems, access control, fire/security alarms, point-of-sale devices, perimeter security hardware, and other equipment. Specialised industry-specific solutions have been developed for the needs of business, government, and infrastructure operators. Related to video surveillance, developers have made huge strides in the effectiveness, convenience, and reliability of the technologies used in video surveillance. Analysis quality has leaped forward as well. But have developers thought about how to make these accomplishments relevant and function flawlessly for enterprise-class sites? The answer, of course, is that we can meet this challenge. But to do so, platforms must take into account the needs of larger systems by intelligently adjusting CPU loads, processing massive amounts of diverse information in a high-quality way, automating system processes as much as possible, centralising management and monitoring at a single hub, etc. Where do we go from here? At AxxonSoft, developers have addressed two pools of new technologies in our latest software version: The first pool includes tools to manage IT infrastructure and massive data flows, including multi-domain monitoring, video recompression using our Motion Wavelet codec, support for external storage, support for video replication between archives, etc. The second pool of new technologies streamlines the work of operators. To support timely and accurate decision-making, we have implemented such technologies as customisable macros for automated and semi-automated reactions to system events, Tag&Track Pro for concurrent trajectory tracking of objects that move between the field of view of multiple cameras, and integration of edge metadata generated by cameras with the metadata generated by our Axxon Next software.

The integration allows the direct execution of object-tracking at front-end VIVOTEK network cameras VIVOTEK is delighted to announce that the integration of AxxonSoft's video content analysis "AnalyticVideo Tracker" function with the VIVOTEK Application Development Platform (VADP) has been successfully completed. Designed for tracking objects by characteristics, the "AnalyticVideo Tracker" can identify various types of objects (individual people, groups of people, or vehicles) and transmit the detected information, i.e. metadata to AxxonSoft's video management software (VMS), Axxon Next, and Axxon Intellect Enterprise for further analysis and reporting. VIVOTEK's VADP an advanced open platform In early 2014, in order to expand its cameras' benefits and create further added-value for customers, VIVOTEK introduced VIVOTEK VADP, an open platform for integrating video analytic functionality within its cameras. Using this advanced but flexible platform, video content analysis functions like object counting, line detection, field detection, face detection, heat map, and so on can be directly installed onto VIVOTEK cameras. Now, the integration of VIVOTEK VADP and AnalyticVideo Tracker allows the direct execution of object-tracking at front-end VIVOTEK network cameras, enabling a drastic decrease of CPU loading at the back-end server and creating greater efficiency across the entire surveillance system. Integration with AxxonSoft's AnalyticVideo Tracker Murat Altuev, President of AxxonSoft said, "This successful integration is absolutely an outstanding achievement. Our customers can now enjoy effective and efficient video content analysis without increasing the back-end CPU loading and sacrificing the performance of their surveillance. Thanks to VIVOTEK, together we are able to provide our customers with a smart solution, maintaining stability and agility while providing advanced analytics of video content." William Ku, Vice President, Brand Business Division, VIVOTEK said: "We're delighted to see this great integration of our VADP with AxxonSoft's video content analysis functions. The realisation of in-camera video content analysis and the seamless interoperability between our VADP and AnalyticVideo Tracker certainly fulfills our ongoing goal of bringing substantial benefits to our valued customers worldwide." Live demonstration at MIPS 2015 The successful integration of VADP and AnalyticVideo Tracker will be demonstrated live using VIVOTEK's MD8531H mobile dome network camera from April 13-16 in Moscow at MIPS 2015, an international exhibition for the security and fire safety industry. Come visit the VIVOTEK booth and find out more information about this and other exciting developments.
