Axis launches three ways to accelerate forensic search
Each of the integrations streamline search for objects or events in a scene using metadata sent from Axis devices. Investigators can pinpoint a single incident from archives of video footage, reducing analysis time from hours to minutes or seconds.
The three forensic search integrations are (click links for videos):
- AXIS Optimizer forensic search based on metadata about motion of objects in a scene
- AXIS Optimizer forensic search using object classification metadata from AXIS Object Analytics
- ONVIF Profil M open object classification using metadata from AXIS Object Analytics
The first two offerings listed above are globally available via AXIS Optimizer.
The motion-based integration enables searches of video recordings based on moving objects, people and events in a scene. It is ideally suited for investigations that begin with only a minimal number of known details, for example where the only known detail is the location of an incident.
The object classification-based AXIS Optimizer forensic search integration suits searches involving a broader range of known details about objects or people in a scene. Based on metadata generated inside Axis cameras with deep learning processing units, a group of pixels can further classify objects by more refined description types or attributes. For example: a specific type of vehicle (car, truck, bike, etc.).
The ONVIF Profil M offering is available as a native integration within Centralized Search for Milestone and Siemens Siveillance. Released in June 2021, it is based on AXIS OS 10.6 and thus supported by a broad and growing range of Axis products. It enables standardized streaming of metadata and event sending from edge-based analytics applications in a best-of-breed multi-vendor surveillance system.
