BriefCam, Ltd., the developer of systems for reviewing and analyzing video camera content, unveils technology that allows users of specific video management software to view a summary of a day’s worth of surveillance video in as short a time as a minute.
In a written statement, BriefCam says BriefCam Embedded Viewer, the video summary technology that is used with BriefCam’s Milestone XProtect Smart Client, “is a fully embedded plug-in” that allows users to see a summary of captured video footage from any camera processed by the BriefCam server. “We are very excited about the launch of a new product that further deepens our valued partnership with Milestone Systems and furthers our vision of Total Video Review,” said Dror Irani, CEO and president of BriefCam.
The plug-in triggers the playback of the original source video in the XProtect Smart Client system, and Embedded Viewer allows Milestone users to take full advantage of BriefCam’s VS Online, which receives real-time feed from the Milestone XProtect video management software, according to the firm. The BriefCam server processes the data to produce a database that can be accessed to create a video summary on demand without exiting the XProtect environment and Smart Client interface.
The technology provides users with a “brief” that enables the rapid review of recorded video to investigate incidents, identify those involved, and ensure there is evidence if needed, says BriefCam.
In addition, Video Synopsis can summarize an entire days’ worth of surveillance camera footage into a video clip as short as one minute, leading to a significant reduction in the effort and expense required to review stored video. Video Synopsis makes it possible to review all the security video recorded during a shift at the beginning or end of each shift, and such reviews can be integrated into security personnel’s daily routine, Irani said. ?
