Keep an eye on what’s important

Intelligent video analytics routines from Qognify help you to distill relevant information from a flood of video images.

Video Analysis with Cayuga

Keep in view what’s really important

To filter the important information out from a flood of video images, ingenious analysis routines are required. Using individually definable detection rules, Qognify video analysis automatically directs the view to relevant events. This helps security personnel to detect situations quickly, determine possible hazard situations promptly – and draw the correct conclusions.

Video analysis is especially suitable for the automatic detection of clearly definable event patterns. Typical scenarios here include persons or vehicles that enter specific areas without permission or who remain for a suspiciously long period of time in one area.

Analytics Server 3D

To ensure the global availability of a powerful video analysis solution for perimeter protection and to protect goods and buildings with Cayuga, Qognify offers server-based solutions in the analytics product range.

Based on the experience of international analysis specialists, the Analytics Server 3D provides professional 3D video analysis which, thanks to sophisticated filter technologies for eliminating interference such as shadows, leaves, snow or rain, is also perfectly suited for outdoor use. The underlying technology is also certified for sterile zone monitoring.

Qognify Analytics is available as a server-based solution and can be managed via a central interface offering intuitive operation. Via automatic calibration and scene analysis, the detection rules can be set and adjusted quickly and easily.

Further Video Analysis Tools

Analytics Interface

With the Analytics Interface you can also use edge device and server based analysis applications from other manufacturers in Cayuga. The metadata generated in third party software (objects, events) are sent to Cayuga in a standardized format and can trigger alarms there, for example.

Please note that the availability of the Analytics Interface depends on the basic license package.

Motion Detection

Cayuga includes an algorithm for server-based motion detection that can be used with all available cameras or video servers on the system. The "Record on Motion" function can be defined for each video channel with just one click so that movements in the camera image automatically start alarm recording – without an alarm scenario having to be created for this in several steps. In addition, Cayuga supports camera-based motion detection for numerous manufacturers and camera model.
