IBM® Intelligent Video Analytics on Cloud now supports multiple types of cameras with new cognitive analytics for automated redaction, advanced search, and facial recognition. Video from cameras in motion and fixed cameras can now be ingested. Analysts can extract critical information and find relevant images quickly across multiple video files, and at the same time, help accelerate investigations.
Key capabilities include:
- Redaction, which may help agencies to safely share video clips in response to requests.
- People search, which may help find images and clips to aid in lead generation.
- Facial recognition, which may help identify persons of interest.
Intelligent Video Analytics on Cloud is available only to US public safety and law enforcement agencies.
Video is one of the fastest growing forms of unstructured data. Video files from cameras in motion, as well as from fixed cameras, are now being used as part of situational awareness and forensic investigations by public safety agencies and security organizations.
For example, the use of body-worn cameras by public safety and law enforcement professionals is increasing as agencies around the world purchase equipment and set up new policies. Body cameras capture events from the officers' perspective and can record their entire or partial shift, depending on an agency's defined policy. The cost of the cameras alone is the tip of the iceberg. How do agencies distinguish and identify pertinent information on the video?
Intelligent Video Analytics on Cloud now brings cognitive-based video analytic capabilities to video captured by body-worn cameras as well as other types of cameras in motion and fixed cameras. These capabilities may help law enforcement agencies and security organizations extract critical information and find relevant images faster to help accelerate investigations.
Benefits of Intelligent Video Analytics on Cloud:
- Automated, intelligent redaction provides both speed and accuracy, which may help agencies in their efforts to meet compliance and privacy requirements.
- The ability to search video clips quickly and accurately, which may save investigative time. Rapid searching across many video files for certain characteristics, such as hair color, head covering, glasses, skin tone, or clothing colors, may help create leads for law enforcement and security organizations.
- Facial recognition may improve lead generation and risk assessment. Matching faces on video to watch lists can help agencies identify persons of interest and speed investigation.
