Genetec Adds Automatic Face Pixelation, Intrusion Detection to Streamvault Portfolio
Genetec says the Streamvault SVA-100 and SVA-1000E are designed to handle more streams than a typical video server with an analytics add-on.
MONTREAL — Genetec announces a new line of off-the-shelf analytics appliances within its Streamvault portfolio designed to analyze more camera streams per unit than traditional security appliances.
The new devices come pre-loaded with Genetec Security Center and unified analytics modules, reducing the cost and time required to deploy video analytics in new and existing systems, according to the company.
Available now, the new Streamvault analytics appliances come in two versions: Model SVA-100, a compact unit well-suited for retail and banking customers who are looking to anonymize patron/clients identities in service environments, and model SVA-1000E, a rackmount unit designed for customers with high camera counts looking to automate the detection of potential threats or monitor large public spaces while respecting individual privacy.
Both models come pre-loaded with KiwiVision Privacy Protector, a real-time video anonymization module that dynamically pixelates individuals within a camera’s field of view. Genetec says this also maintains an operator’s ability to monitor actions, something that is impossible with static masking.
The new appliances also include KiwiVision Intrusion Detector, which detects individuals and objects in sensitive areas, which is said to reduce reliance on visual monitoring and help operators detect threats faster.
Genetec says its Streamvault analytics appliances remove the uncertainties that come with deploying video analytics on a new or existing system, and reduce the cost-per-video stream analyzed by optimizing appliance components.
The Streamvault SVA-100 and SVA-1000E are said to be designed to handle more streams than a typical video server with an analytics add-on. In the latter scenario, the server is not streamlined for analytics processing, but rather for video archiving.
The new analytics appliance can be deployed alongside existing servers, ensuring surges in analytics activity do not compromise video monitoring or archiving operations. Once analyzed, video and analytics data are then directed to other products in the Streamvault family.
“Traditional servers are not adapted to video analytics requirements. When analytics add-ons are installed, they are limited in the number of streams they can analyze and require extensive customization and configuration before deployment, resulting in higher equipment costs,” says David Grey, Streamvault product line manager. “Streamvault analytics appliances are designed to complement them, allowing each device to focus on tasks they are best suited for. This allows us to deliver a more cost-effective, turnkey solution and decrease the total number of appliances needed for a project.”
