Management & Analysis Software
Video management systems are at the heart of every video network. Unfortunately, most video management systems are still based on obsolete technology. In order to configure cameras or receive signals, software has to be installed on every workstation, or every PC that is used as an image source. This is not only time-consuming but expensive, since each installation usually incurs a royalty...
SAMCONtrol is the world's first purely browser-based video management system. This means there is no need to install additional software or hardware other than a standard web browser in order to operate a video network. This technology signifies the end of artificial limitations for existing video management systems - a common open standard replaces proprietary software. Expensive software updates or complex configurations are replaced by plug & play and simple drag & drop. Video signals can be displayed anywhere in the world, and on any device, whether a PC, Tablet or Smartphone.
SAMCONtrol is the world's first purely browser-based video management system, which means that you can now configure, administer and operate as many cameras as you want using a unified platform. IP cameras as well as analog video cameras can be connected via video server. SAMCONtrol supports all current IP transmission technologies from Ethernet, DSL, GPRS to UMTS or VPN, ISDN or RDT. This means that SAMCONtrol can not only be used in new video networks but it can also be integrated easily into existing systems.
Video surveillance systems produce massive amounts of video. Due to lack of time or resources however, most of this video never gets watched or reviewed. As a result, security incidents get missed and suspicious behavior is not detected in time to prevent incidents. These challenges have played a large part in the development of video analytics.
Video analytics are software applications that automatically generate descriptions of what is actually happening in the video (so-called metadata), which can be used to list persons, cars and other objects detected in the video stream, as well as their appearance and movements. This information can then be used as the basis on which to perform actions, e.g. to decide if security staff should be notified, or if a recording should be started...
SmokeCatcher - Early Fire Detection System
Fire detection in real time: The ExCam SmokeCatcher Series
A system that detects a fire earlier than conventional fire detectors? A system that does not only report a fire but also delivers a detailed assessment from a safe distance? A system that can also be used in aggressive environments as well as in hazardous areas?
The new ExCam SmokeCatcher makes all this possible. The particularly developed software is integrated into a conventional IP CCTV camera which then continuously examines the video images to detect smoke and immediately reports an emerging fire. And in contrast to conventional video-based fire detection analysis, all this takes place in the camera itself so that the data does not have to be sent via the network to a central server hence keeping the network load low, saving on expensive hardware...
