The traditional views of keeping an eye out in security work like this: vigilant security guards keep their eye on a couple of monitors, looking for things that could be out of the ordinary and notifying other security staff when something is wrong. The truth of the matter is, not a lot of security functions work like this anymore. Thanks to modern advancements in video content analysis, the need to look at every bit of security footage captured has been added, and we are a lot more likely to see automated security systems set in place. As we begin to implement more video-based security systems and have less available manpower to monitor them truly, it is very important that we understand what video content analysis truly is and how it can benefit us in the future. Read on to learn more!
What Exactly is Video Content Analysis?
Video content analysis is when a form of artificial intelligence is used to help monitor security footage for your security personnel instead of a manual inspection. Certain parameters have to be set up to make video content analysis effective. For example, some software can use motion detection to alert you if somebody is intruding in a specific area after a few hours. Video analysis comes in a few different forms, from third-party software to parameters built right onto the cameras themselves. One example is Gatekeeper’s own intelligent vehicle occupant detection system which is capable of facial recognition, or our license plate reader technology that can recognize and identify license plates at record speed.
Who is This Technology Suitable For?
Because of the personalized nature of modern video content analysis and the ability to set specific parameters, automated video analysis makes sense in situations where reviewing or monitoring security footage is not cost-effective or feasible. Whether you are a retail company, border checkpoint, government entity, or simply trying to make your parking lot more safe, automated video analytics are the future of dealing with constant security footage.
How Does It Work?
Security footage is used in all types of investigations around the world. The more specific you make your approach towards security, the better suited you will be able to perform. If vehicles entering areas they shouldn’t be is your top concern, it makes sense to look into our own intelligent vehicle occupant detection system to keep track of the drivers and occupants that enter a specific area.
