Arteco focuses on analytics and integration

1 April 2020 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Arteco has launched Arteco VCA, the video analytics set that involves the digitalisation of video footage and the employment of sophisticated algorithms to classify object types and identify behaviour in real time, providing alerts and events to users.

The Arteco Video Content Analytics solution was designed to be easily set up and immediately employed by companies and users. Following Arteco’s motto ‘Security at First Sight’, security professionals can rely on a more effective detection procedure due to a made-to-measure approach that gives them the chance to apply multiple logical rules to create unique scenarios for a single camera view and video streaming. As a consequence, the user can count on an accurate false alarm minimisation and a feeling of control over the scene.

Algorithms and features

Arteco VCA has a set of algorithms that make it a solution for a wide range of applications. This is the list of the applicable filters and much more is to come:

- Intrusion detection

- Loitering

- Counting

- Object classification

- Deep learning filter

- Speed filter

- Appear and disappear filter

- Stopping object filter

- Dwell filter

- Enter and exit filter

- Direction – wrong direction

- Tailgating

- Abandoned object

- Tamper detection

Classification of objects and metadata

Arteco VCA allows the classification of static and moving objects on the basis of size and speed. In addition to the distinction between cars and larger vehicles, individuals and moving groups can be distinguished. The detection of moving subjects generates metadata that appears in real time in the video streaming and allows you to simplify the forensic research:

- Data and time

- Channel

- Type and name of the event

- Bounding box

- Classification, speed and size of the object

- Classification and reliability of deep learning

- Object colour

“Arteco’s mission is making the companies’ life easy when it comes to security. We developed Arteco VCA to be applicable to a wide range of markets, since it provides specific and powerful algorithms that make the security job the most accurate possible,” said Giampaolo Sabbatani, CEO of Arteco. “And that is not all: we keep on working for interoperability, focusing on integrations, because we know the importance of approaching the customers with customised offers that meet their specific needs of security”.

Integrates with third-party NVRs/DVRs

There are several methods to design a security system using Arteco. In the past, users had to have a server on each site that linked back to the control room or client PCs. With the drive of Asian manufacturers to reduce the price of surveillance equipment, we found that clients, convinced by such offering, had to find out that they do not have the full flexibility of being hardware agnostic.

As a consequence, they have been requesting that Arteco develop a solution to integrate with their existing equipment. Now a client can use lower cost hardware, but still have the ability to use a solution such as Arteco NEXT.
