Camsecure introduces Opax

June 2010 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Extending its reach into intelligent surveillance, Camsecure is launching a new video content analysis application in South Africa.

OPAX AS creates video analytics software that secures critical assets through reliable perimeter protection. The company’s solutions improve quality and lower the costs of surveillance with technology used and proven in demanding applications around the globe.

With a military heritage and strong R&D, OPAX is able to engineer analytics software that meets the needs of outdoor surveillance situations. The system converts passive CCTV systems to active components of a modern security infrastructure, improving surveillance quality and automating labour-intensive tasks.

The performance of video analytics software is defined as its ability to detect and classify objects. Innovations embedded within the software include:

* Filtering algorithms provide reliable surveillance while minimising false alarms, making the solution suitable for challenging outdoor situations where low-end analytics software fails.

* OPAX use of a three-dimensional terrain model enables exact determination of size, distance, speed and direction of objects, providing the precision necessary to reliably protect critical assets.

* OPAX system architecture provides the computing power needed to simultaneously analyse and track hundreds of objects per camera, enabling great scalability and headroom for growth.

Open platform

To quickly realise value, video analytics software must cost-efficiently integrate with the components of an existing security infrastructure. OPAX software is built to be integrated, providing a fast return on investment and low administrative overhead. OPAX is:

* Based on a modular and open system architecture, fully integrated with leading VMS providers.

* Using standard hardware and software platforms, providing cost-efficient administration and simple, single-point updates.

* Simple yet flexible implementation that provide optimal performance without the need of time-consuming system calibration.

* Quickly adds value to all existing analogue and digital surveillance cameras.

With a flexible analytics platform, OPAX provide all features needed for the protection of critical assets.

* Flexible set of rules allowing a multitude of applications including perimeter protection with intrusion detection, speed supervision, object counting and more.

* Real-time map plotting of objects enabling faster response times and unique usage scenarios.

* Automatic PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) camera control provides improved security through object tracking.
