Video Analytics Modules

A video analytics module is a software component developed by IrexAI Inc and running on the IREX platform. A module inputs a video stream from a camera and analyzes it with one or more computer vision algorithms. A module outputs events to notify users and enable instant search in the archived video. Some video analytics modules continuously output metadata with the object position (i.e. a trajectory) to enable video content search without pre-defined rules.

The following table provides a list of IREX video analytics modules included in the IREX subscription as standard. If you wish to integrate a third-party module or develop a custom module, please contact your IREX representative.

Events

Events are system messages generated by video analytics modules or IoT sensors connected to the IREX platform. Each event contains data to tell the user what happened, where, when, with who, and more details:

  • Source (video analytics module or sensor)
  • Timestamp (certain events may have a duration)
  • Event type (e.g. "Line Crossing")
  • Event tag (e.g. "Person on Track")
  • Image (still video frame)
  • Object bounding box (e.g. the box around the person)
  • Recognition accuracy
  • Other metadata (e.g. suspect ID, access control ID, etc.)

Video Analytics Management

When you manage video analytics you do the following:

  1. Check that your Secure Private Cloud has enough capacity to run additional video analytics modules.
  2. Enable a video analytics module
  3. Set up video analytics parameters
  4. Add rules to generate events
  5. Verify event generation on the Event screen, check event playback with the video player.
  6. Optionally, adjust event filters for an alarm monitor.
