NICE Systems’ Suspect Search is a patent-pending analytics solution that, for the first time, enables end user organisations to quickly search for a specific person within large volumes of video.
When time is of the essence, security and public safety organisations will no longer be overwhelmed by the process of reviewing hours of video to identify and track people.
NICE Systems has now formally introduced to the market NICE Suspect Search, a new video analytics solution aimed at efficiently searching through multiple video sources to detect targets in a matter of minutes.
Currently, searching for a specific person over many cameras and locations and across a broad period of time is a demanding, lengthy and cost-consuming task that may end up proving fruitless. With NICE Suspect Search, a search for an individual is initiated with a reference based upon a recorded image, an uploaded full body photo or by creating a composite. The system can simultaneously search for multiple targets in several cameras.
By automatically filtering out 95% of irrelevant images and presenting the results by relevancy, an hour of video can be reviewed in less than a minute.
NICE Systems’ Suspect Search can be useful in many instances:
• Conducting a forensic investigation by analysing multiple video sources following a crime to identify the perpetrator’s route and actions
• Tracking an intruder within a closed area or checkpoint breach
• Finding a lost child within a critical time window
• Locating the owner of unattended luggage
As a result, organisations can optimise their ongoing security and safety operations by:
• Enhancing forensic analyses of events
• Improving response times
• Preventing criminal activity
• Reducing operational shutdown times
Suspect Search is built on NICE Systems’ NiceVision IP video management solution, and can also be integrated with NICE Systems’ dedicated situation management solution, Situator. Suspect Search is currently deployed in several ‘Proof of Concept’ projects around the world, including airports, mass transit, safe cities and major sporting events.
Chris Wooten, executive vice-president at the NICE Security Group, said: “While the proliferation of cameras is an important trend in the security market, the burden of processing all of the data has limited the value of the video footage. Based upon our extensive work in the market, we’ve developed NICE Suspect Search which is a ground-breaking application designed to tackle what is a major pain point for end users. Whether they’re trying to find a suspect or understand who left a bag in a given location, end users may now have that answer in minutes.”
