Viseum’s Intelligent Video Analytics Software…
Viseum iVOS™ Intelligent Virtual Operator Software Technology Services
- Our Video Analytics Software fully optimizes any network of CCTV cameras to automatically detect, confirm and follow people and vehicles from close to long range, and at greater distances than any other Video Analytics Software.
- Reliably analyse with 4 times greater accuracy than any other Video Analytics Software in real-world deployments.
- Automatically create and grow your secure database of people, vehicles, and watchlists, from matching just a few hundred people and vehicles to recognizing many millions in near real time.
Viseum’s Video Analytics Software uses the latest field-proven know-how, methods, and concepts. Our Video Analytics Software automatically detects scenarios using wide contextual view cameras, and also automatically controls a moving PTZ Camera to further analyse the detection, to confirm and follow the incident.
Viseum introduced Video Analytics Software to the security and surveillance industry in the year 2000. Our International Patents are a testament to our development and support of video analysis technologies for longer than any other organisation in the world.
Our deep learning neural networks AI Video Analytics Software is called Intelligent Virtual Operator Software (Viseum iVOS). Our Video Analysis Software support infrastructure to deliver this security success has evolved over the longest period of time, to produce the most robust and highly effective routines turning innovation into practical Video Analytics Software solutions.

Intelligent Video Analytics Software | Intelligent Virtual Operator Software
Delivering the highest levels of CCTV security and surveillance for situational awareness in complex and challenging environments, our video analytics software provides line-of-sight CCTV surveillance. Working completely standalone for secure management via the Internet, or integrated with remote CCTV monitoring command and control, Viseum Panoramic Security Camera’s are proven to provide at least 25 times more court-quality evidence than any other camera solution, by giving greater coverage than multiple fixed camera installations and better performance than intermittently manned PTZ moving cameras.
Standard Viseum iVOS Video Analytics Software
By automatically learning its environments, and ignoring rain and other movements such as trees and bushes blowing in the wind, the Intelligent Virtual Operator Software permits effective monitoring night and day in all types of weather (subject to available ambient or artificial light).
Incident detection and behavioural recognition capabilities are based on the study of objects in real-time environments, to meet specific salient surveillance requirements for populated and unpopulated open areas that generate random crimes. It measures and compares various parameters relating to the basic laws of physics, such as size, shape, time, speed, and location, and then applies decision rules based on local knowledge of the environment to recognize particular types of activity in particular areas.
Intelligent Security Video Analytics Software Automated Detection/Reaction
To achieve its excellent day and night detection performance and the quality of evidence required, Viseum Video Analytics Software uses fixed wide-angle contextual view cameras to the highest specification available for each remote site. These cameras are more sensitive than a human eye in low-light conditions, and combined with its disciplined automation in maintaining vigilance, our advanced Video Analytics Software is well-proven to detect activity in larger and more distant areas more effectively than a human eye.
Matching the performance of its detection system, its fully automated reaction system uses the industry’s highest specification PTZ Cameras to automatically confirm incidents, and to maintain greater accuracy at distance providing consistent high-quality close-up evidence.
Video Analytics Software Target Selection
Developed through listening and watching many UK CCTV operators, by default our analytics software uses a points system to select targets based on where they are and what they are doing. This means that if there are several activities meeting the same surveillance profile, the system will target the activity with the most points.
Where multiple events occur simultaneously, it can be instructed to switch the PTZ Camera between events using this points system and the activities’ locations. This allows close-up evidence to be captured of everything and has the added benefit of preventing diversion tactics.
Video Analytics Software PTZ Camera Optical Zoom Control
Another key functionality of Viseum’s Intelligent Virtual Operator Software is its ability to automatically meet UK Home Office Guidelines for zoom levels required for court evidence. The method of selecting the appropriate zoom level is easily adjusted to meet local operational policies or individual user requirements.
Manual PTZ Camera Control
Integrated into command control legacy systems, or using Viseum’s Graphical User Interface (GUI), the PTZ Camera can be manually moved at any time. For rapid manned response, Viseum’s advanced ‘Point & Go’ functionality can be used to have the PTZ Camera go to wherever needed with just one click of the screen.
Video Analytics Software Proactive Alarm Options
User-specified analytics triggers are set by Viseum’s Remote Managed Support Service to proactively alert manned response units using the following mobile phone-based options:
- Audio and/or video alarm.
- SMS text.
- Images of the alarm sent via MMS.
Video Analytics Software Surveillance Profiles Scheduling
As part of our Video Analytics Software libraries, standard surveillance profiles are available to fit the majority of real-life environments, and new profiles are produced for customised applications by our Remote Managed Support (RMS) services, who are on-hand to help ensure the surveillance profiles are optimized for each area under observation.
These profiles are easily selected from a drop-down menu and any number of different profiles for any number of specific areas can be set for different times of the day over a seven day period.
Local Knowledge Crime Hotspot Management
Any numbers of areas are easily given 1 of 3 levels of priority. For example, activities in certain areas can be given relevant priority:
- Criminal damage – catch people in the act and see where they come from and go to.
- Focal points for illegal activities – catch close-up evidence of offenders and evidence of their crime.
- ATM machines – catch and alarm people getting robbed and PIN skimming devices being attached.
- Drug dealing – focus on regular meeting points and catch transactions.
