SmartCatch 2.5 is designed to enable more rapid, efficient and appropriate responses to security situations. The system provides true behaviour recognition capabilities that solve real world problems not just motion detection or simple object tracking. SmartCatch 2.5 delivers a comprehensive set of behaviours that can be monitored indoors and out, including access control for tailgating and exit lane violations, facility protection for detecting loitering and unattended objects, and new advanced perimeter surveillance capabilities. SmartCatch 2.5 provides complete protection across an entire enterprise. It integrates seamlessly with a company’s existing security infrastructure and includes a complete suite of APIs for further integration, customization of the user interface, and tailoring of applications. SmartCatch 2.5 is designed to support a customer’s existing security management program, and accommodate multiple security protocols. With its range of new behaviours and features, SmartCatch 2.5 meets a broad set of security needs at major transportation hubs, businesses, government facilities and public institutions. Its new robust behaviour recognition for perimeter surveillance applications includes a sophisticated multi-tiered region-of-interest capability that classifies perimeter locations. It is able to accurately classify and distinguish between humans and vehicles and classifies all other detected items separately. It also includes powerful filters for negating background visual ‘noise’ and distractions, including fluctuations over water perimeter areas. Other behaviours available for SmartCatch 2.5 include: crowd detection in which the system is sensitive enough to detect inappropriately growing crowds before problems occur; exit lane abuses by individuals attempting to travel in the wrong direction; unattended objects in which it monitors and detects the placement, size and changing quantities of objects, and vehicle tailgating where all objects, whether human or other vehicles, are accurately detected and classified. Along with the new perimeter surveillance behaviours, SmartCatch 2.5 includes an array of new features, including built-in interfaces for integration with the leading access control systems that have UL compliant interfaces. The system is also able to support the most widely used hand-held communications devices, supporting the Palm, OS/Win and CE/Symbian mobile operating systems. SmartCatch provides real-time identification, dissemination and response coordination of live security breaches, including an escalation workflow system for coordinating all security personnel within an enterprise as well as with those within the local community, state and even national security organizations. It provides multiple live camera views and can view any combination of cameras.
