A PARADIGM SHIFT IN URBAN SURVEILLANCE
iCetana helps turn vast surveillance infrastructures into effective dynamic live monitoring systems. Guards, operators and security companies become a key part of a command and control operation and a real-time response network. They are able to immediately respond to exceptional security, safety and operational events before they escalate.
iCETANA USES COMPUTER VISION AND MACHINE LEARNING TO HIGHLIGHT THE 1% OF VIDEO SURVEILLANCE EVENTS THAT NEED ATTENTION
The iCetana system utilises computer vision and a patented machine-learning algorithm to automatically learn the difference between normal movement patterns and abnormal exception events in real-time. The system solves the problem of massive video surveillance data overload by only showing surveillance operators those camera views where something abnormal is occurring.
Self-learns the “normal” motion patterns in a surveillance camera scene. It learns: how and where people move, how traffic moves, any no-go zones and any changes in activity at different times of the day. It does this all automatically with no programming required.
HIGHLIGHTING THE ABNORMAL
Once normal is established for each camera the system then detects and displays only the cameras with abnormal activity. This means only a small fraction of video data needs to processed by operators for increased situational awareness. Operators can assess and take immediate action to prevent events from escalating.
THREAT AND RISK REPORTING
Provides valuable threat and risk data through real-time and historical reporting. The utilisation of the surveillance data provides valuable insight into evolving threats and risks. It gives surveillance operators and security management the ability to provide both real-time notification and aggregated local, regional and global surveillance trends.
INTEGRATING WITH EXISTING SYSTEMS
Displays the relevant camera scene to operators via iCetana’s LiveWall application, Video Management System (VMS) plugin, or smart mobile devices. iCetana interworks with existing video surveillance infrastructures increasing the return on investment and effectiveness of this infrastructure.
Video monitoring is being increasingly used beyond security. Companies are now leveraging video for health, safety, and operational/production compliance – to identify incidents and highlight variations from normal. iCetana puts organisations in the driving seat to effectively manage and respond to risks beyond security.
iCetana’s system solves the problem of massive video surveillance information overload by only showing surveillance operators those camera views where something abnormal is occurring - in real-time.
iCetana detects a wide-range of security, safety and operational events in real-time:
- Suspicious behaviour
- Unauthorised access - people and vehicles
- Irregular movement (people / vehicles)
- Trespass - no-go zones, perimeter fence, tunnels
- Violence / Aggressive Behaviour / Assaults
- Medical / security events requiring immediate response
- Precursor events - crowd gathering / dispersal
- Vandalism to fixed assets
- Camera tampering
- Fire risk
