BriefCam Announces Video Analytics Innovation

New capabilities to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support the safe and responsible re-opening across the globe

BriefCam has announced a significant new capability to its product portfolio with v5.6.1 of its innovative and extensible video content analytics platform. The new capabilities will help to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support the safe and responsible re-opening across the globe. New features available in v5.6.1 include:

Proximity identification. For effective contact tracing and enforcing social distancing, v5.6.1 offers the ability to forensically review video to identify individuals who were in proximity to another individual for a determined duration of time, and to combine with Face Recognition and Appearance Similarity capabilities to determine if a person has been in contact with COVID-19 infected individuals. This enables users to quantify the proximity of people across time and location, compare across days and correlate with external data sources to ensure compliance with social distancing mandates.

Face mask detection. Provides the ability to search for people with or without a face mask, as well as detect and alert on face mask violations in real-time.

Occupancy controller. Enables users to maintain building occupancy requirements by setting rules to count people as they enter and exit a premises across multiple cameras and entry and exit points. When the threshold is met, an alert can be sent to access control solutions, security staff, VMS, or any other destination. Users can understand occupancy detail over time and location through business intelligence dashboards and prove compliance.

“Our video analytics platform has greatly expanded in its ability to offer new use cases for accelerating video investigations over the last year,” said Tomer Saar, BriefCam vice president of Product. “During this pandemic we are proud to be able to offer organizations and businesses the critical tools through our proximity identification, face mask detection and occupancy controller capabilities to help them reopen their organizations and places of businesses while protecting their employees and customers.”

The new innovation available in BriefCam v5.6.1 complements the already powerful and robust analytic capabilities that support additional public health use cases for identifying crowding hotspots and enforcing building or space sanitization practices with a unique combination of people counting, heat map visual layers, line crossing and real-time alerting.

BriefCam v5.6.1 will be generally available in June. Proximity Identification with real-time alerting as well as Face Mask Detection analysis and trending capabilities is planned for August.

    I’m a recovering alcoholic, ten years sober this June. I almost wrote “recovered alcoholic,” because it’s a problem I’ve long since put to bed in every practical sense.

You just learn to tell the difference between that insidious voice in your head and your actual internal monologue, and you get better at telling the other guy to shut up. Read Now

    My first security trade show was in 2021. At the time, I was awed by the sheer magnitude of the event and the spectacle of products on display. But this was the first major trade show coming out of the pandemic, and the only commentary I heard was how low the attendance was.
