Automatic target tracking in PTZ cameras

SightLogix : 10 December, 2012  (New Product)
The PTZ range of cameras from Videotec now benefit from automatic control on alerts from SightTracker from SightLogix
Automatic target tracking in PTZ cameras

SightLogix announces the integration of its SightTracker pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera controller with Videotec’s ULISSE line of positioning devices. The integration gives users an accurate and cost-effective video security solution for comprehensive detection, tracking and assessment over outdoor areas.
 
“Security managers need fast, detailed information about the location and nature of an intrusion in real time,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix President and CEO. “The integration of SightLogix SightTracker with Videotec's positioning systems provides the necessary domain awareness that is critical for accurate perimeter intrusion detection.”
 
The SightTracker solves the challenge of an operator trying to manually locate a target outdoors using a PTZ camera. SightTracker auto-steers PTZ cameras to follow detected targets for greater detail without any human intervention. Targets are visually displayed on the customer’s video management system with great detail while the target’s location is presented on the SightMonitor map or a Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system. The result is a comprehensive security solution that provides the “what and where” of an intrusion for making fast decisions while capturing the event for evidence.
 
The integrated solution from SightLogix and Videotec has been proven in real-world deployments. At a Canadian oil refining facility, fixed SightSensor® video analytic thermal cameras provide long-range detection around the refinery’s perimeter, while SightTrackers automatically steer Videotec ULISSE IR360 cameras with infrared illuminators to light the target.  The combination of systems creates a complete thermal detection and assessment solution over large outdoor areas without visible lighting.
 
Similar systems have been deployed to protect electric substations in Europe for detecting intruders entering the facility while also sending alerts when on-site personnel get too close to high-voltage equipment.  In these applications, accurate detection is combined with real-time video assessment to ensure that both security and safety requirements are met.
 
The all-in-one ULISSE systems integrate a high speed 360° rotating pan and tilt head with a camera and housing and a multiprotocol telemetry receiver. SightTrackers use GPS-based target information provided by an associated SightSensor detection camera to automatically guide the ULISSE systems to follow detected targets for greater detail without human intervention.
 
“Working with SightLogix allows our customers to benefit from enhanced situational awareness for securing outdoor infrastructure,” said Gianni Viero, Vice President of Sales at Videotec. “Our collaboration provides security personnel new options for automated security built around Videotec solutions.”
 
The SightLogix portfolio of products includes long range SightSensor detection cameras, SightTracker automated PTZ controllers for target identification, and SightMonitor® coordination and GPS target location topology map display software.
