Harris has integrated OnBoard digital signal processing-based analytics software tools into the video encoding module of its Intraplex NetXpress managed IP networking platform.
“Integrating ObjectVideo OnBoard software within the NetXpress video encoder expands the system’s capability, providing an additional layer of security monitoring and protection,” the companies stated. ObjectVideo’s video content analysis software “intelligently discerns objects of interest; distinguishes between humans, vehicles and other objects; continuously tracks positions for all moving and stationary targets; and recognizes if objects have been removed or left behind at the designated site; among other possible security breaches.”
When significant changes are detected in the video, the system issues alerts, including still images or full-motion video, over the IP network and maintains event logs. Harris said the implementation lets customers monitor facilities without having to add or dedicate personnel to guard remote sites.
