New video analytics algorithms detect petty crime in CCTV footage
Comments Off on New video analytics algorithms detect petty crime in CCTV footage
A consortium of European companies and organisations has developed a new video analytics algorithm that detects suspicious behaviour in CCTV footage as it happens and can then alert CCTV operators to intervene, saving the footage in case it is needed for evidence, a news report has been able to suggest.
Researchers involved in the P-REACT project say the surveillance technology could help catch criminals in the act and relieve police of “digital evidence overload” by highlighting video clips most likely to be relevant to investigations.
The software tracks people’s movements and features embedded algorithms that have been trained on sample scenes of people fighting, chasing someone or snatching a bag.
The technology was presented at the International Conference on Imaging for Crime Detection and Prevention in November, with more extensive field trials planned for the future.
CCTV Surveillance – Suppliers of Top-Range Video Analytics Solutions
The Video Analytics solution supplied by CCTV Surveillance features specific applications for perimeter protection intrusion management, crowd management and situation indication, which facilitate extensive, highly complex surveillance operations and highlight crucial decision data in a very visible manner.
The system monitors video streams coming from analog, digital, or IP CCTV cameras in near real-time and automatically creates current security alerts when recognizing specific types of events and activities, prompting the operator to act.
Using a Video Analytics system to automatically monitor camera video feeds and alert for events of interest enables superior efficiency and cost reductions by eliminating the need for manual work and helping operators notice and respond to threats sooner, rather than later.
Video Analytics is a very practical and effective solution that meets the needs of all stakeholders involved in the surveillance system’s operation, including operators, security officers, and corporate managers.
