IP Surveillance

Surveillance has moved to the network and it is a major change in how we have seen surveillance solutions deployed within the last 2 decades. Once hard wired coax based “closed circuit television” systems are not hidh resolution network servers and endpoints all wrapped into a complex design and setup. Investing in a scalable end-to-end solution that integrates with your existing IP network now is a real possibility, not not without careful consideration. The benefits are almost endless in IP Surveillance and cost is coming down quickly and significantly.

We cover all areas including network design, NVR design, megapixel camera recommendations, wired/wireless infrastructure configuration and network managing including: QoS, bandwidth management, remote access and other critical components to a truly successful IP Surveillance solution design.


Benefits of IP Surveillance:

  • Simplified management and cost savings
  • Broad line of high quality professional IP cameras
  • Proprietary switch technology to maintain video quality over shared voice/data/video networks
  • Scalable, high performance video storage options from very small to very large installations
  • Industry standards compliance for optimum flexibility
  • Single support call troubleshooting
  • Total solution including design, installation, configuration and proactive support

Surveillance Analytics


ACTi video analytics are designed to help you transform your video surveillance network into a smart detection system and a valuable resource for business management. Advanced image processing algorithms, such as, people counting or license plate recognition, are being used to recognize and track movement of people and objects to determine their behavior and provide analytical insights. The summary reports can then be displayed as interactive graphs and exported. The system can also trigger other network devices such as alarms, electric gates or digital boards.

The unique video analysis technology developed by ACTi can power not only dedicated analytic servers but also network video recorders (NVR) and intelligent cameras. Different solutions are recommended for distinct situations:

  • Dedicated analytics server – when analyzing large number of channels, using sophisticated algorithms, or using NVR without built-in analytics.
  • NVR with built-in analytics – when analyzing few channels or using limited range of algorithms.
  • Intelligent cameras with built-in analytics – when analyzing single camera view or using VMS without built-in analytics (also supports third-party).

Video analysis using dedicated analytic server


Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS) Server and Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) Server offer great flexibility and scalability – they can analyze a wide range of channels by using great variety of algorithms. If many channels need to be analyzed or when sophisticated analytics require high computing power, the software can be installed on powerful servers to ensure the highest accuracy of results. Running dedicated analytic server is also required when using NVR or cameras without built-in analytics.

The extracted data is stored on the server and can be accessed from remote clients.

IVS Server 1

Windows-based tool that can analyze, record and search up to 9 live or pre-recorded video streams using intelligent video analytic algorithms.

ALPR Server 1

Windows-based tool that automates license plate identification and recognition from up to 4 live or pre-recorded video streams.

Video analysis using NVR with built-in analytics


NVR 3 Corporate contains selected video analytics. Its use is recommended especially when the number of analyzed channels is limited or when the analysis doesn’t require high computing power.

The extracted metadata is stored in the database of NVR 3 Corporate and can be accessed from remote clients.

NVR 3 Corporate

The most powerful edition of NVR 3 that integrates many state-of-the-art features such as POS management, IP door control, network DIO, and many more.

Video analysis using cameras with built-in analytics


Cameras with built-in analytics are recommended when only single view needs to be analyzed or when using VMS without built-in analytics – even a third-party solution. As the intelligent cameras don’t depend on the network bandwidth and response time, they are the most suitable option for cases that require immediate response, such as, PTZ auto-tracking.

The acquired data is stored in cameras and can be accessed from remote clients.

ACTi Cameras

Wide range of IP cameras – dome, box, bullet, cube. Special features – Zoom, PTZ, 360, Covert.

Comprehensive reports

Processed data is presented neatly in a form of clear and interactive graphs. The summary is easy to understand so you can take immediate actions. It can also be exported for the purpose of sharing with other decision makers or archiving.

Overview of ACTi video analytics

People Counting
As a manager of retail store or shopping center, you want to know how many people and at what time enter and exit the venue. The people counting feature provides you this information as comprehensive graphs so you can make the best decisions regarding item stocking or working schedule management.

Heat Map
Increase your revenues by enhancing the store’s layout to reflect shoppers’ behavior. You can innovate the product placement strategy, refine promotions and optimize check-out services by using heat map – visual information about customers’ density and flow in the store.
Learn more.

Dwell time
Improve customer satisfaction by providing prompt product consultation when customer is lingering while making product purchasing decisions.
Learn more.

Crowd Detection
Service customers without delay. You will be automatically notified when the number of customers in the waiting line exceeds the limit so you can open another checkout counter.

Queue management
Know exactly how much time customers spend waiting in the line and optimize the check-out flow by automatically redirecting customers to proper waiting lines for traffic balancing.
Learn more.

Vehicle Counting
Monitor traffic to detect and prevent congestion and manage traffic flow by dynamically opening and closing road lanes and redirecting transit to alternative routes.

Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR)
Let only certain vehicles enter restricted areas – any vehicle with license plate which is not on a white list will be immediately reported. You can also use the ALPR to automatically charge highway tolls.

Forbidden direction
Prevent road accidents by detecting vehicles driving in wrong direction. The system will immediately display warnings on electric roadside signs and notify the authorities.

Object Counting
Make sure that the number of items being loaded from warehouse on trucks is correct and no items have been omitted.

Missing Object
Transported items can be stolen during transit. Avoid such situations by monitoring the vehicle interior and detecting any objects that disappear between scheduled offload locations.

Motion detection
Specify what type of motion will trigger predefined events. Depending on the configuration, the object can be anything from a small item falling from a conveyor belt in a production line to a person moving in a restricted area.

Face Detection
In many situations, typically in factories or automated warehouses, many moving objects appear in a scene but it’s only the presence of people that should be noted. Face detection is used to recognize people in predefined areas and alert the controlling personnel or stop the machinery.

Enter and exit area
Make sure that any unauthorized person won’t enter prohibited area. You can select regions that will be monitored for entrance or exit of people and objects and every such event will trigger a predefined action, for example an alarm.

Line Crossing
An event is triggered every time a person accidentally or intentionally crosses a virtual line. This feature can protect properties (burglar trespassing on private premises) or save human lives (passenger falling from platform into a railway track).

Unattended Object
Unattended objects, such as shopping trolleys left in a parking lot, can be obstacles for pedestrians and cars. However, an abandoned handbag can also pose a severe security threat in a crowded area. You can use ACTi video analytics to detect unattended items and deal with them properly.

This feature detects unwanted manipulation with the camera – attempts to break it or refocus and obstruct its view.
