Title (EN) DISTRIBUTED SMART VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE VIDEOSURVEILLANCE INTELLIGENT REPARTI
Abstract:
(EN) A distributed smart video surveillance system (20) is disclosed which includes at least one surveillance camera (22,24,26) and a processor, for example, a remote server (27) with storage capability. The captured video data is transmitted to the remote server, where it is analyzed forming a distributed smart video surveillance system. In particular, in intrusion type applications, video data from static surveillance cameras monitoring regions of interest is machine analyzed to determine if any abnormal conditions exist. The abnormal condition is detected simply by detecting a change in a scene. As such, the system in accordance with the present is relatively accurate and minimizes false alarms. If an abnormal condition is detected, a response to the abnormal condition is automatically initiated. The system is configured so that heterogeneous clients (40,42, 44, 46) can access the system in order to view live or recorded video. In one embodiment of the invention, the system is configured to receive commands from a cell phone to start, stop, pause and resume the video surveillance.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de surveillance vidéo intelligent réparti comprenant au moins une caméra de surveillance et un processeur, par exemple un serveur éloigné disposant d'une capacité de stockage. Les données vidéo capturées sont transmises au serveur éloigné, où elles sont analysées pour former un réseau de vidéosurveillance intelligent réparti. Dans des applications de type intrusif en particulier, les données vidéo provenant de caméras de surveillance statique surveillant des zones d'intérêt sont analysées par la machine pour déterminer la présence de conditions anormales. La condition anormale est détectée simplement par la détection d'un changement dans une scène. Le système selon la présente invention est relativement précis et minimise les fausses alarmes. Si une condition anormale est détectée, une réponse à la condition anormale est automatiquement initiée. Le système est configuré de sorte que des clients hétérogènes puissent accéder au système pour visionner des vidéo en direct ou enregistrées. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, le système est configuré pour recevoir des commandes d'un téléphone cellulaire pour démarrer, stopper, mettre en pause et reprendre la surveillance vidéo.
