Foxstream, the French software company specialising in real-time VCA (Video Content Analysis) has a partnership with Samsung Techwin. Foxstream’s people counting application can now run on Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII cameras. The firms say that users can have a counting application which works with Samsung’s latest camera functions.
Based on the FoxVigi counting solution module on server, the embedded version, FoxCounter, offers statistics on security and other issues. The companies say that the software is mostly used in places welcoming people. According to the developers FoxCounter offers:
• Identify attendance peaks;
• Establish reference bases (day/week/month), to measure evolutions; and
• Inform the operator in real time on the site’s occupation rate, according to the maximum accommodation capacity.
A web interface fits with the Samsung Techwin WiseNetIII cameras’ configuration screen, and allows in particular listing of all the data reported by each camera on the same network. From a web browser and by connecting to a camera, the operator can access the statistics, and know at all times the number of people in a building, even if it has multiple entrances and exits.
Samsung Techwin’s Open Platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset is at the heart of the company’s latest 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel high definition video surveillance cameras. The processing power of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset enables it to run multiple edge based Applications such as FoxCounter, as well as video analytics, facial recognition and ANPR, which can be downloaded in a similar way to adding apps to a smartphone. It also lets users use the video management software (VMS), that best matches specific project requirements, Samsung Techwin adds.
The WiseNetIII range supports P-Iris, which optimizes the iris function when multiple lighting conditions exist in a single scene, whether in retail, airports, railway stations, museums, theme parks and any place with visitor traffic. This results in images with better contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field, according to the makers. FoxCounter performs bi-directionally in a ceiling-mounted camera, offering a solution even under varying lighting conditions, such as light movements, shadows and reflections, it is claimed.
Thanks to the WDR function built into the WiseNetIII series that provide picture quality, motion blur is reduced and clearer images are processed, according to the manufacturer. FoxCounter can refine the counting results, when several people cross the counting area simultaneously. FoxCounter is also described as an autonomous solution: in case of network cuts, the data is stored inside the camera. Visit: http://www.foxstream-intelligencevideo.com.
