BriefCam has announced BriefCam Syndex, a new product which will launch at ASIS 2013 in Chicago, September 24-27, 2013.
BriefCam Syndex is a next-generation product range based on Video Synopsis technology. Video Synopsis is the simultaneous presentation of objects, events and activities that occurred at different times. Users can pinpoint events of interest, reach targets quickly and take action as required.
In addition to offering a powerful set of tools for fast video review. BriefCam Syndex augments the basic Video Synopsis by allowing users to search video according to attributes that they define: size, colour, speed, direction and location within the frame. All parameters are under the user’s control – including the order of objects displayed in the Video Synopsis. BriefCam Syndex is offered as a standalone product, or an integrated or embedded part of the VMS environment.
Like all search engines, BriefCam Syndex ranks the Video Synopsis results in order by probability – from highest to lowest – ensuring that the most relevant events of interest are presented first.
"Since launching sales in mid-2010 BriefCam products have been used successfully by law enforcement and investigative agencies worldwide,” said BriefCam CEO & President Dror Irani. “The BriefCam Syndex product line is a major step forward in our effort to meet customer needs and stems from the vast experience we’ve gained during that time."
“The new product opens BriefCam up to new markets and uses beyond security as it also serves as a productivity enhancement tool. It enables users to extract value and actionable information from video that had previously gone unwatched due to time and cost constraints. With BriefCam, video can now easily be accessed, searched and reviewed, with rapid video review facilitating proactive modes of use.”
BriefCam Syndex is geared towards a range of user groups and market verticals:
* BriefCam Syndex FS enables law enforcement, security officers, and others responsible for the post-event review and investigation of large quantities of video files, to review hours in just minutes.
* BriefCam Syndex FS+ is intended for law enforcement and/or security officer teams: multiple users responsible for the post-event review of large quantities of video files for investigative purposes, as an individual, group or collaborative effort.
* BriefCam Syndex EP is ideal for small to medium-sized enterprises already invested in a VMS environment with up to 200 video cameras and a small team of video investigators engaged in post-event and/or real-time video review.
* BriefCam Syndex EP+ is a scalable solution intended for use by large enterprises with more than 100 cameras, able to support an unlimited number of cameras and investigators.
As with all BriefCam products, BriefCam Syndex stresses ease of use, integrating the user’s experience, intelligence and intuition as a vital part of the search and review process. The human mind and eye are always engaged.
Irani said, “Video contains potentially valuable data. Until now, most recorded video was unwatched and eventually dumped along with that information because the existing tools for reviewing video were impractical. Your cameras and recording equipment are already in place. Why not exploit them?”
“Our ultimate goal is to help turn seemingly ‘useless’ video into useful information that supports better decision making and faster action.”
