Title
(EN) FEATURES IN VIDEO ANALYTICS
(FR) CARACTÉRISTIQUES D'ANALYTIQUE VIDÉO
Abstract
(EN)
A video analytics function is disclosed for use in a video monitoring applications to control and monitor streaming video from a video source arranged to monitor a field of view (FOV) and providing for end-user input to identify and modify a compression level of at least one object or area field encompassing the field of view (FOV) based on a monitoring priority of the at least one object The inventive operation realizes reduced bandwidth and processing requirements for monitoring the FOV because of a reduction in streaming video data based on the compression level, which includes a fully-masked compression level The novel function provides for reconstructing the FOV for viewing at an end-user interface, e g ' a remote workstation, and inputting end-user commands at the end-user interface to create an object field encompassing the at least one object or area field within the FOV.

L'invention concerne une fonction d'analytique vidéo destinée à être utilisée dans des applications de vidéosurveillance pour contrôler et surveiller une vidéo de diffusion en continu à partir d'une source vidéo agencée pour surveiller un champ visuel (FOV) et fournir une entrée d'utilisateur final permettant d'identifier et de modifier un niveau de compression d'au moins un champ d'objet ou de zone englobant le champ visuel (FOV) selon une priorité de surveillance du ou des objets. L'opération de l'invention met en œuvre des exigences de bande passante et de traitement réduites pour surveiller le FOV decoulant d'une réduction des données de vidéo de diffusion en continu selon le niveau de compression, qui comprend un niveau de compression entièrement masqué. La nouvelle fonction fournit une reconstruction du FOV pour une visualisation au niveau d'une interface utilisateur, par exemple un poste de travail à distance et une entrée de commandes d'utilisateur final au niveau de l'interface utilisateur pour créer un champ d'objet englobant le ou les objets ou un champ de zone dans le FOV.
