Video analytics has long been heralded as the cutting-edge of video surveillance, and despite some claiming the technology is too costly, too complex and delivers inconsistent performance, the reality is video analytics has never offered as many benefits. Misconceptions about the capabilities of the technology do exist, many based on out-dated thinking or experience with systems that are either not properly developed or poorly implemented. Today’s video analytics offers a growing number of benefits, and with the advent of faster processing, can now deliver a greater level of flexibility for system integrators and end users.
IVA makes use of scene-based metadata when carrying out analysis, but is the value of captured metadata too often overlooked by integrators? If the captured metadata is used ‘after the event’, users to go back and search for new violations and exceptions that were not configured at the time of the data capture. Bosch Security enables smart management of metadata, delivering advanced benefits and added value for the end user.
In previous articles, Benchmark has considered what metadata is and how it describes, in detail, events and activities in a captured video stream. Where this metadata is recorded along with the video stream, its value lies in enabling integrators to deliver a solution that allows advanced searches, even when an analytic rule wasn’t applied when the video was recorded. In this article we consider the simplicity with which metadata allows searches for new violations and exceptions. Bosch Security enables smart management of metadata, delivering advanced benefits and added value for the end user.
