What does your video do for you?

CCTV Handbook 2020 Surveillance

Over the past few years video has advanced considerably. Video not adapting to your needs has become somewhat old-fashioned and outdated. Hence, many manufacturers have seen the need to update their technology accordingly.

Depending on your application, you will probably view and record many cameras, whether for home or business use, but have you ever wondered what’s going on at your house while you are reading this article? Is there an unwanted guest entering your premises? We as human beings thrive on information and require this to function. Hence there is a definite need for us to receive the information we require as and when we need it.

TVT has come a long way in embracing those needs. As an intelligent surveillance system, it will bring all the relevant events to your attention as and when they arise. This all begins with getting only what you need when you need it. The level of intelligence built into the technology now means you can set parameters and events and the system will bring the relevant data to your attention.

Better still, notifications and events can be conveniently pushed to your mobile device or alternatively be displayed in the target detection window of your NVR. This means multiple individuals can get valuable footage and data in real-time and act on it faster than ever before.

A few basic intelligent events

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR): ANPR technology such as that found in TVT ANPR cameras can detect and identify a vehicle’s number and designate it as ‘friendly’ or ‘hostile’. It can classify the number plate in up to 16 different libraries where custom events and alerts can be set. Alerts can be sent via mobile networks to relevant individuals in the form of push notifications. Once again, risk can be mitigated before an incident. Other applications for ANPR include barrier access control, road surveillance, fleet management and investigation where up to 50 000 number plates can be stored.

Facial recognition: Facial recognition has been around for some time now in various devices and technologies. However, TVT has made it smarter and more

effective. For example, the ‘Backstage Blacklist Person Warning’ initiates a warning before the blacklisted person enters the premises. The backstage reminds staff to pay attention to the blacklisted persons and their behaviour. The whole process uses passive face recognition technology.

This level of intelligence puts all designated users on high alert and in the right place at the right time. Tracking can be activated and used via a jpeg overlay map of the store and one has the opportunity to track a face or person’s whereabouts. Other functions can include access control and temperature detection.

Object classification: The TVT E3 series cameras have the ability to classify objects and determine if they are motorised or human. This gives you the ability to set up human intrusion detection whereby only humans entering a specific area will alert you. As with all TVT events, one has the opportunity to define the events and generate the appropriate actions. This is a great way to drastically reduce those irritating false alarms in any control room environment.

What makes TVT AI stand apart?

TVT is one of a few brands that have developed intelligence for entry level and advanced security cameras and NVRs. TVT has exceptional ways of bringing information to your fingertips. You can choose your cameras and level of intelligence based on your priority requirements without breaking the bank.

The next time you come across an incident or are preparing a solution, think artificial intelligence (AI), think TVT. Whatever your intelligence requirement – it is now possible and affordable.
