Video Synopsis Technology

Dec 31, 2007

Download This white paper describes Video Synopsis technology, a proprietary, innovative image-processing technology being commercialized by BriefCam. Video synopsis is an approach to create a short video summary of a long video. It tracks and analyzes moving objects (also called events), and converts video streams into a database of objects and activities. The technology has specific applications in the field of video surveillance where, despite technological advancements and increased growth in the deployment of CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras, viewing and analysis of recorded footage is still a costly and labor-intensive and time-intensive task. BriefCam meets the global unmet need to browse video, investigate and identify incidents rapidly, and take action. BriefCam's Video Synopsis technology gives users 24 hours in a minute, compacting hours of events into a "brief" that takes just a few minutes to review.
