VCA’s Bridge integrated with SureView’s Immix security management platform

VCA’s Bridge appliance, which instantly adds video analytics capability to any new or existing IP video surveillance camera system, has now been successfully integrated with SureView’s security management platform.

Supporting multiple camera channels, Bridge is an easy to deploy, low cost analytics appliance which is equipped with extensive back office tools to set detection zones for people and vehicles.

Using VCA’s video analytics engine, which has been successfully deployed worldwide in over 350,000 video channels, Bridge is able to detect movement within very small areas of a video image. As such, it can provide central station operators with a powerful ‘exception’ reporting tool to help them identify suspicious activity and, when appropriate, dispatch security officers or quickly report the incident to one of the Emergency Services. 

Filtering out false alarms

Bridge is designed to meet the challenge of detecting movement in outdoor locations as it will automatically adapt to varying light conditions and can easily be fine-tuned to minimise false alarms due to, for example, rustling trees or wildlife.

It will even continue to deliver a high level of performance when cameras may be swaying due to windy conditions.

In addition to capitalising on the benefits of analytics, the deep integration achieved means that operators using the Immix platform can view live images of any incident and exercise control over PTZ cameras. Other key elements of the integration include post-alarm video recording.

“We achieved integration between VCA’s analytics and the Immix platform some time ago and, as a result, there are many thousands of cameras worldwide that are already acting as highly effective detection devices,” said Kevin Waterhouse, executive vice-president for global sales at VCA.

“Bridge makes it even easier to introduce analytics into a security system and, most importantly, gives installers and end users alike the flexibility to use cameras that have already been installed, regardless of who the manufacturer might be.”
