The VD8700 face recognition analytic camera, recently released by Geovision, a world leader in surveillance, features on-board analytics as well as a facial analytics program. The device is able to capture faces and store that image to allow it to initiate alerts to the user if a certain person was in its view. The VD-8700 runs on a Snapdragon 600 series processor, has over 10000 face databases, and an IR range of up to 40m.
Tips on how video surveillance can improve productivity in heavy industry
A common security problem plaguing the oil and gas production companies in the booming South Texas oilfield is securing the many entrances to the thousands of active oil and gas leases. With multiple oil companies and associated vendors accessing these busy sites 24/7, security and site integrity can quickly get out of hand. In the past, the only means of providing log in/log out of vehicles and gate control was by use of costly personnel stationed around the clock.
Thermographic or Infrared (IR) cameras create images using IR radiation as apposed to the visible light used in conventional cameras. Basically, what this means is that they are able to “see” heat as it radiates from an object and then display the differences in heat within its picture as various shades of grey in black and white video. Thermal cameras are therefore able to see through objects when a heat source is inside, require no light, and are not affected by things like smoke or dust.
When talking about the modern security system, the hottest item always seems to be the cameras. Now capable of extremely high res video, real-time analysis and video processing, and more. But in many cases, having a solid access control system is even more important. Without successful control of who can go where and when, having visual data can quickly become meaningless.
