Metadata is generated on board cameras themselves, which eliminates the need to decompress video on the server side. The CPU burden on the video server is significantly reduced, which allows the server to handle more video streams.
Metadata can be used to support scene analytics tools in Axxon Next, for determining when a virtual line has been crossed, motion has occurred in a selected area, and the like. In addition, thanks to offloading of tasks from servers to cameras themselves, security systems can unlock the full potential of the incredible tools available in Axxon Next:
- MomentQuest generate metadata at the moment of recording for fast, precise analysis. Search for events by criteria: motion in area, line crossing, size, color, direction, movement rate and more. Thumbnails of relevant video are shown in seconds.
- TimeCompressor get quick visual summaries of all moving objects in a single image while maintaining their original rate of movement. Click an object of interest to jump to the relevant source video.
- Autozoom easily monitor moving objects with automatic digital enlargement (digital zoom). The portion of the frame that contains moving objects is enlarged for ease of viewing and adjusts to keep the object in frame, just like a movie camera.
- Tag&Track Pro lock on to and track moving objects, simultaneously getting the "big picture" of everything happening at a protected site while obtaining detailed imagery of the objects moving around it.
