Mac gets a ‘Big Brother’

Video surveillance on iPad

In a dazzling demonstration of video surveillance, Christopher Gettings – President and CEO of videoNEXT Network Solutions, Inc. of Chantilly, VA – wowed an audience at New York’s Paley Center for the Media on April 29, with an incredible array of video surveillance software, all of which is fully compatible for mobile viewing on an iPhone or iPad.

Gettings spoke at a Tekserve-sponsored event entitled, “Your Business on a Mac: The Future of Video Surveillance,” that also included presentations from Apple and IP camera supplier Axis Communications. During his presentation, Gettings showed the audience how videoNEXT software allows users to monitor just about anything and everything -- from office kitchens to parking spaces -- on commonly used Web browsers like Safari, Firefox and Explorer.

Some of the more innovative aspects of the videoNEXT system included:

  • A geospatial interface that utilizes Google Earth software to locate cameras as well as individuals accessing the system from mobile devices;

  • Intelligent and scalable archiving that automatically erases video segments in which no action occurs to more efficiently utilize storage capacity;

  • Abandoned object and removed object detection that allows the software to analyze when something has changed within the environment under surveillance;

  • A diverse array of camera specific algorithms that allows users to automatically create, for instance, tripwires in a room that will alert the user to the coming or going of individuals in a given space. Other algorithms include measures that alert to the speed, size, number and type of targets in a given area;

  • Detailed event logs that can be organized by access control events, such as card swipe associations or cash register transactions;

  • The ability to have more than 40 users simultaneously viewing the surveillance system from multiple remote browsers spread out over any size area without any system degradation;

  • Touch screen camera control from any computer, creating a virtual mobile control room.

VideoNEXT provides surveillance solutions to a diverse clientele roster that includes the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard as well as the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Bureau of Prisons, the Intelligence Community, the United Nations, the Washington, DC police department and the Austin, TX, airport, to name a few.
