VCA Bridge integrated with SureView Immix - A solution for the false alarm problem

5 Sep 2016

VCA’s Bridge appliance, which instantly adds video analytics capability to any new or existing IP video surveillance camera system, has been successfully integrated with SureView’s security management platform.

Supporting multiple camera channels, Bridge is an easy to deploy, low cost analytics appliance which is equipped with extensive back-office tools to set detection zones for people and vehicles. Utilising VCA’s video analytics engine, which has been successfully deployed worldwide in over 350,000 video channels, Bridge is able to detect movement within very small areas of a video image. As such, it can provide central station operators with a powerful ‘exception’ reporting tool to help them identify suspicious activity and when appropriate, to despatch security guards or quickly report the incident to one of the emergency services.

Filtering out false alarms

Bridge is designed to meet the challenge of detecting movement in outdoor locations as it will automatically adapt to varying light conditions and can easily be fine tuned to minimise false alarms due to, for example, rustling trees or wildlife. It will even continue to deliver a high level of performance when cameras may be swaying due to windy conditions.

In addition to capitalising on the benefits of analytics, the deep integration achieved means that operators using the Immix® platform can view live images of any incident and exercise control over PTZ cameras. Other key elements of the integration include post alarm video recording

“We achieved integration between VCA’s analytics and the Immix® platform some time ago and as a result there are many thousands of cameras worldwide that are already acting as highly effective detection devices,” said Kevin Waterhouse, Executive Vice President, Global Sales for VCA. “Bridge makes it even easier to introduce analytics into a security system and most importantly, gives installers and end-users the flexibility to use cameras that have already been installed, regardless of who the manufacturer is.”

About VCA:
Developed in the UK by a team of computer vision scientists, VCA’s video analytics engine can perform a wide range of security and surveillance applications such as people counting, intrusion detection and vehicle monitoring, as well as tailgating and camera tamper detection.

Based on state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms and with the benefit that comes from over 50 man-years of research and development, the system continuously adapts to environmental changes and rejects sources of false alarms, so that an operator is alerted only when there's genuinely something of interest.

The analytics engine has been independently verified by the UK Home Office i-LIDS programme for use in sterile zone applications, so users can rest assured that the system meets stringent performance standards for event detection and false alarm rejection.

In addition to its security credentials, VCA’s analytics also provides a highly accurate method for capturing and providing metadata, which can be graphically displayed in customisable reports to provide organisations with the information they need to achieve their business and operational objectives.

VCA analytics has been developed with the user in mind. Easy to set up, it is incorporated into VCA’s own brand range of internal and external IP network fixed, domes and 360-degree panoramic cameras.
