Ⅰ. Introduction

The rapid development of security industry calls for the need of a more intelligent video monitoring. For the reason The rapid development of security industry calls for the need of a more intelligent video monitoring. For the reason that a massive amount of video is being recorded, but hardly ever being reviewed, it is ordinary to miss suspicious behaviors. To avoid such events and activities being missed, Milesight propounds intelligent Milesight Video Content Analysis(VCA). Embedded in network cameras, Milesight now has a complete VCA Solution, realizing 10 VCA functions via Network Cameras, NVR and CMS.

Ⅱ. What is Video Content Analysis?

Video Content Analysis(VCA), also referred to Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA), is the capability of automatically analyzing video to detect and determine temporal and spatial events. The algorithms can be implemented as software on general purpose machines or as hardware in specialized video processing units. It automatically performs an analysis of captured video, and automatically uses the resultant data. This technical capability is used in a wide range of fields including entertainment, health-care, retail, automotive, transport, home automation, safety and security.

Ⅲ. Milesight Video Content Analysis

Milesight VCA provides advanced video analysis for Milesight network cameras, NVR and CMS. It enhances the performance of network cameras through 10 detection modes, enabling the comprehensive surveillance function and quicker response of the whole VCA solution to different monitoring scenes. In addition, Milesight Network Cameras, NVR and CMS all support independent function settings for convenient user experience. The Milesight VCA solution ensures that video surveillance is more accurate and cost-effective.
