Integrated Systems

VMS integration

The video management software (VMS) product company Digifort has partnered with video synopsis product company BriefCam to offer operators forensic search and review, from within its VMS platform.

Francois Levy, Digifort Business Development Director for EMEA, says: “Briefcam is a powerful video search tool, which integrates with Digifort’s intelligent data processing to make surveillance systems far more effective. BriefCam enables operators to locate specific incidents quickly using a range of simply applied, search criteria.”

Video data from Digifort is uploaded from each camera channel. BriefCam’s intelligent algorithms use metadata to extrapolate objects and activity from within each camera video stream. This is done using search criteria such as object size, colour, direction, dwell and speed. BriefCam’s Video Synopsis tool takes all the video data that matches the search criteria, from many surveillance hours, and overlays it onto a new video lasting a few minutes. Each incident is tagged, allowing operators to isolate relevant incidents for viewing, from a single click. For example, a search of all yellow cars travelling on a highway between 13:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs would show all occurrences overlaid onto just a few minutes of video. The operator can quickly identify the specific car of interest and by clicking it, view the full video of its movement.

Francois Levy said: “Adding BriefCam to any Digifort VMS system allows users to identify unseen and unreported events; significantly reduce data searching times by using specific object features; process evidence very quickly; reduce operator search times and costs and export and share data effectively.”

Applications, says BriefCam, already include transport infrastructures, airports, stations, retail outlets, town centres, car parks, warehouses, industrial and commercial sites.

BriefCam points to integration opportunities with other site security and management tools, such as fire alarms, intruder, access control and building management systems.

Digifort adds that an unlimited number of secure client PCs, tablets and smartphones can access and view its VMS. For more on DIGIFORT products visit
