- Video content analysis is the capability of automatically analysing video to detect and determine events not based on a single image but based on contents within an image.
It is used in a wide range of areas including entertainment,health-care, retail, automotive, transport, home automation, safety and security.The algorithms can be implemented as software on a IP based recording unit ts.
Many different functionalities can be implemented in VCA. Video Motion Detection is one of the simpler forms where motion is detected with regard to a fixed background scene. More advanced functionalities include video tracking and egomotion estimation.
Based on the internal representation that VCA generates in the machine, it is possible to build other functionalities, such as identification, behaviour analysis or other forms of situation awareness.
Bullet cameras are also known as pipe cameras due to their shape – like a pipe. These are typically weatherproof, available in day/night models, equipped with supplementary infrared illumination via IR LEDs and also in WDR (wide dynamic range) models. Bullet cameras are typically used externally.

We supply camera’s to watch over your office entrance or gate. These camera’s will provide you with an always clear view of the goings-ons and they come complete with unbeatable zoom functionality.
- The Box cameras are categorized by the ability to use interchangeable lenses, this allows the flexibility amongst these security cameras to be modified for just about any application. Box camera’s are usually used for indoor commercial environments but can also be used externally with a weatherproof external enclosure for protection from the elements. A typical outdoor application could be for the monitoring of a building perimeter.
- These are also known as static mini dome cameras and are multipurpose and inconspicuous. These cameras are simple to mount practically anywhere e.g. on ceilings or walls. CCTV dome cameras come in different sizes, which are offered in both day and night, infrared illumination, wide dynamic range, weather and vandal resistant models. Dome cameras are also very cost-effective because they eliminate the need to acquire lenses or mounting brackets as most have an integrated lens. Compared to pipe cameras they have the extra benefit of not revealing the direction they are viewing as the dome’s plastic cover covers the lens and its focus area
- Pan tilt zoom cameras (a.k.a high speed dome cameras) are extremely cost efficient and versatile. PTZ cameras are great for any surveillance video requirements where vast areas need to be protected and surveyed thus preventing the need for many static cameras. PTZ dome cameras have many qualities that are ideal for tracking movements across vast areas that under surveillance as well as zooming in on a specific object. These are also available in day/night, WDR, weatherproof (with heaters and fans) and vandal resistant models. Some of the latest models have a tracking mode where the camera intelligence follows a moving object that enters its viewing area. The intelligence is obviously limited and cannot cope with multiple moving objects.
- Thermal cameras are used in situations where detection is required in areas where these is absolutely no light i.e. zero lux. These cameras operate in the invisible infrared spectrum to produce an image dependant on the temperature of the objects being viewed and not visible light and thus objects are not masked by darkness, smoke or camouflage. These are also very useful in the day to detect objects as hard-to-spot objects in visible lighting are clearly visible using a thermal camera. Thermal cameras are far superior to IR cameras which are equipped with supplementary infrared lighting which have limited range of typically 25m as compared to 100s of metes for thermal cameras.
- As the name suggests, the covert camera is used in situations where secrecy is required as to the fact that video monitoring/recording is actually taking place. The requirements for covert cameras varies but mostly are used for capturing unwanted actions and behavior which would probably be absent in the presence of visible cameras which would act as a deterrent. Covert cameras are manufactured in varying shapes and sizes including PIR alarm detectors, smoke detectors, clocks and any place where a small “pinhole” camera can be mounted and concealed e.g. in a arch lever file. The disadvantage of covert cameras is that once their presence is detected they are no longer covert. Also, due to their small size, their image quality is not as good as larger normal cameras.
- These are also known as privacy buttons and are not as concealed as a covert camera but are small and discreet and are unobtrusive for situations where there is concern that conventional cameras would detract from the decor in the location. Some of these are available with microphone, speaker and a white LED light to provide illumination when it is dark.
