State-of-the-Art video surveillance systems are based on analogue technologies. Recently, a trend towards IP based monitoring and recording systems can be identified. These systems allow the archiving and the analysis of the video material where the problem of huge amounts of data arises. Therefore, big command and control centers only need the visual information in … Continue reading miniSPOT.net

iObserveNG

The goal of this project is to develop a highly intelligent, next-generation video-based surveillance system. A service-oriented architecture as infrastructural basis of a scalable video surveillance system will be implemented. Services are self-contained and can be used independently. Every service owns a public interface, which can be used by the subscribers within a network. Two … Continue reading iObserveNG
