brings its edge video analytics to IFSEC
, a content analysis suite that enables detection, classification and tracking of abnormal events in infrastructure, retail and commercial sectors.
ASL's Combine allows 12 video images to be integrated into a single panoramic view, so enhancing the situational awareness of end-users at locations including ports, airports, sports stadia and railway stations. Multiple camera inputs are presented in combination with configurable display formats, so optimising a control room operator's understanding of site layout.
A stand-alone device that does not require server or operating software, Combine allows remote viewing of the aggregated view with up to four cameras being processed in real time (25 fps).
At IFSEC, ASL will be demonstrating how video scene stitching can be performed seamlessly when operating on a vehicle in motion, combining camera views while driving through a town. The technology can also be applied to stationary CCTV, and ASL is currently using the solution at a marine lock, providing the lock operator with a unified, combined plan aerial view of five fixed cameras. Combine, in this case, is enabling the client to assess quickly and accurately how many vessels can use the space at one time, so taking situational awareness to the next level.
Installers and end-users will be interested in the Earwig intelligent CCTV eavesdropper
Installers and end-users, who need to increase situation awareness beyond a camera's default field of view, will be interested in the Earwig intelligent CCTV eavesdropper. This automatically highlights the camera area where an unusual audio event such as a cry for help, commotion associated with an assault or vandalism is occurring. The unit has both safety and commercial usage; pilot applications include reports for a train operating company on sound that is consistent with attempted theft from ticketing machines.
When encountering unexpected levels of noise, the Earwig will show the relevant area on a video wall, allowing operators to take control of the relevant camera and assess the incident. The technology is aimed at surveillance and safety usage for remote monitoring of public transport, car parks, site perimeters and retail locations.
Across driver, protocol and application layers, ASL Vision develops embedded processor and digital signal processing applications within infrastructure and the automotive sector, bringing new technology from the R&D lab to commercial applications.
