Video Analytics

- Avigilon Corporation of Vancouver, Canada, has added the Rialto video analytics appliance family to its product portfolio. The appliances provide real- time event detection and verification, enabling users to proactively identify unusual activity in a monitored scene and take immediate action. The technology, when combined with high-definition video imaging, provides superior perimeter surveillance. The products offer “Teach by Example” functionality, enabling users to give feedback about the accuracy of various alarm events as they are generated. Rialto products learn from the feedback and increase future accuracy, resulting in lower false alarm rates. Other features include true object classification, audio talk-down capabilities, instant notification, ease of installation, and an open platform.

This platform leverages the capabilities of the PowerG wireless intrusion technology. With solutions for a full spectrum of installations, the PowerSeries Neo system is fully customizable. At the core of the system are four control panels, ranging in capacity from 16 to 128 zones and two to eight partitions.

The platform enables video recording and playback, analytics processing, user- and device-management, notifications, Web services for customized application development, and the dynamic addition of new services, including those created by third-party suppliers using the application programming interface. The system is designed for plug-and-play functionality.
