IBM Intelligent Video Analytics V1.0 helps increase the efficiency of your physical security and public safety staff in two ways:

  • Alerting operators in real time based on predefined events, such as a person entering a restricted area

  • Allowing operators to search previous activity for specific events, such as finding all yellow cars that drove by the building yesterday

IBM Intelligent Video Analytics examines each frame of video, extracts information about events in that video, and stores it in a database for future reference. This approach allows for real-time alerts as well as rapid searching of literally hundreds of millions of past events. In addition, it is able to incorporate data from other sources.

IBM Intelligent Video Analytics supports analysis of:

  • All vehicles as they pass a field of view
  • People or vehicles on the side of road for specified period of time
  • Object abandonment
  • Entry onto exit and entrance ramps
  • Congestion detection
  • Object removal
  • License plate recognition (via third-party integration)
  • Size of vehicles for areas where there are size limitations (underpass height, lane width)
  • People or other hazards in the roadway
  • People or vehicles within unauthorized or restricted areas

IBM Intelligent Video Analytics supports extensive indexing and search:

  • Attribute-based search (size, color, speed)
  • Date and time ranges
  • By location in field of view
  • License plate search (partial or full)
  • With use of multiple cameras
  • Tracking of objects in view

Information from IBM Intelligent Video Analytics, combined with IBM Intelligent Operations Center and its large application store, allows the identification of real-time and predictive patterns. For law enforcement scenarios, IBM Intelligent Video Analytics can help provide identification of criminal activity and other security events through facial recognition capabilities that help law enforcement officials define and capture events as well as generate leads for further investigation.
