Video Analytics

Security Video Analytics

The ACTi IVS Server 1 is a video analytics software designed to transform your video surveillance network into
a smart detection system. This software uses advanced image processing algorithms to recognize humans
and everyday objects. The algorithms are able to track the movements of objects, such as appearances,
disappearances or loitering, and determine whether the movements are suspicious based on user-defined
rules. Once a suspicious activity is detected, users can also playback to watch these events and use them as
references or evidences if needed. In addition, this software also provides algorithms to count the number
of objects or humans passing by a specific location. ACTi IVS Server 1 helps you enhance your existing
surveillance system while providing you with valuable information for business intelligence and management.
