New software version of the IPS VideoManager for more sophistication in operation Video security is intelligent video surveillance with the IPS factor.
Security expert Securiton Deutschland is launching version 14 of its IPS VideoManager on the market, once again underlining the unique fusion of video management and video analytics from a single source. Both the IPS NextGen Client and IPS NextGen VideoAnalytics are equipped with new functions that ensure even greater efficiency and easier operation.
IPS NextGen Client with sophisticated functions With the new export functionality on the search page in the IPS NextGen Client, the software development team in Munich has achieved a real masterpiece: The user can directly export a large number of selected images collectively. Gone are the days when each sequence had to be selected and exported individually. The time range for selecting the sequences in question can be set easily and in a user-friendly way. An export is made as an archive file with password function. The function is suitable for handing over recorded evidence to the police, for example, and supporting criminal prosecution. Depending on the authorisation, the material can be masked in such a way that zones or objects are unrecognisable and data protection can be maintained.
Privacy protection through masking is also ensured in the small alarm cards of the overview list, which show alarm situations as a preview image. The masking of objects and static zones has also been improved: With the appropriate rights, masking can also be switched off again and all objects and zones are recognisable – a great help for security officers, the works council or the police in clarifying the situation.
The system configuration has also been simplified: With the help of the new separate configurator, which is available as a separate application, both the system and the analysis configuration can be carried out independently of the IPS NextGen Client. This is a real benefit for the user-optimised application of the video security system, as client and configurator are available at the same time.
IPS NextGen VideoAnalytics for highest detection accuracy There are also enhancements for even more video intelligence in the IPS NextGen VideoAnalytics. The number of rules for an individual set-up of the video analytics increases from three to five. This creates more flexibility and the number of possible scenarios increases. In addition, the software development of the IPS technology brand improves the detection quality for small objects in the rear image area: The analysis captures this area precisely, possible irregularities and dangers are effectively detected in the entire video image.
The “loitering detection” function has also been further developed. Up to now, an alarm has been triggered when someone stays too long in a predefined zone. In the new version, the analysis alternatively sends an alarm if a person stays particularly long in one place within a zone, for example, stays suspiciously long at the fence of a factory site and exceeds the maximum set dwell time.
The automatic number plate recognition with IPS VideoManager now has an extension for the camera models of the manufacturer Axis. This means that any number of black and white lists can be used and the operator can react specifically to unauthorised vehicles. Adapted to the respective customer needs, alarm images can also be displayed and switched on in the event of an incident, and links can be made to other workflows. Selected cameras are assigned to the various lists and actions are triggered depending on them – for example, in the case of access authorisation for parking spaces by controlling barriers and gates.
