LAN & Network Solutions Journal (Russia) has announced the winners of its 2012 Product/Solution of the Year competition among IT and telecom solutions. The journal's experts awarded prizes in two categories: Breakthrough of the Year and Efficiency of the Year.
The Axxon Next video management software (VMS) won Efficiency of the Year in the Business Video category. The journal's reviewers made special note of the unique technologies in Axxon Soft for video analytics of previously recorded video footage, a very promising area of video surveillance.
MomentQuest2, one such technology, allows quickly searching for video episodes in an archive based on a number of criteria, including movement in a specific area of the frame, crossing of a virtual line, movement from one area to another, size, color, direction, speed of motion, etc. The second key technology, TimeCompressor, allows viewing all events recorded by a camera during a specified interval in a "compressed" video synopsis. Moving objects are shown on screen at the same time, so the time necessary to review the objects is reduced significantly. By clicking an object of interest, users can instantly jump to the corresponding video fragment in normal playback mode.
The Efficiency of the Year Award goes to a product, solution, or technology that allows realizing large-scale efficiencies, by accomplishing more results for less money and reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO), capital and operating expenses (CAPEX/OPEX), as well as obtaining rapid ROI (return on investment) indicators. The category also extends to "green" products, which save on power consumption and thus reduce operating expenses.
MomentQuest2 and TimeCompressor make video archive analysis much more effective than ever before. Not only do they save on the time needed to search, but they also improve the chances of finding the necessary video footage: after all, operators are liable to get distracted and overlook important events if they are forced to review video for hours on end. The new technologies in Axxon Next unlock new levels of efficiency in video surveillance deployment for purposes of documenting information and forensic search.
