SmartDetect Architecture To ensure maximum operational flexibility, three distinct network structures may be employed to optimise the functionality of the I-Command® SmartDetect suite and provide an integrated, best-fit video analytics solution for networks of any size and scope. COE’s X-Stream™ encoders and I-Vue® Cameras feature embedded technologies which enable I-Command® SmartDetect Essentials and I-Command®

SmartDetect Advanced video analytics to be performed on highest quality uncompressed video. This architecture is highly cost-effective whilst also remaining fully scalable.

I-Command® SmartDetect provides an effective failsafe against CCTV operator fatigue and human error.

I-Command® SmartDetect System and I-Command® SmartDetect Search utilise a hybrid architecture, dividing analytical processing between the edge device and a dedicated alarm management server. This is an optimised solution, harnessing the processing power of the server whilst optimising network bandwidth.

Embedded Analytics I-VueŽ Cameras and X-Stream™ encoders feature embedded video analytics modules. This enables the edge device to undertake advanced video analytics on highest quality, uncompressed video.

Hybrid Architecture Analytics

SmartDetect Architecture Options Edge Device Analytics

Distributed Analysis SmartDetect System utilises a distributed architecture optimising network bandwidth usage and allowing powerful analytics processing on the system server.

Proxy Server Analytics

Proxy Server A proxy server performs analysis on video from any encoder/IP camera from across the system.

IP Network Device Agnostic Analytics can be performed on any camera by utilising a proxy server architecture.

I-CommandŽ SmartDetect in Action SmartDetect is utilised in some of the world’s most high profile video surveillance installations.

The Port of Singapore Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Port of Singapore manages container movements serving 200 shipping lines, offering connections to 600 ports in 123 countries. The port has around 1100 cameras installed, and several control centres located across four main terminals. COE was selected to provide a complete video transmission and management solution for this landmark site. Integrating disparate technologies whilst utilising the existing infrastructure with minimal development costs, the chosen solution digitised the existing cameras. The solution enhanced functionality and recording capacity, plus facilitates future expansion.

COE provided a comprehensive video surveillance upgrade including I-Command SmartDetect video analytics. SmartDetect video analytics was integrated at various points across the Port of Singapore for both security enhancement and logistical purposes. Recognising the requirement for highly efficient operations in seaports, analytics has been an invaluable tool to assist in incident detection and response.

Logistics Analytics Through smart implementation of video analytics, logistical processes can be streamlined using cameras to identify bottlenecks, queues, misplaced containers, vehicles etc. This prevents hold-ups and helps to maintain efficient operations.

Intelligent Video Analytics COE’s SmartDetect analytics detects behaviour patterns of vehicles, people and objects. Advanced analytical capabilities such as water vessel detection may be utilised to maintain secure operations at a site.
