iCetana’s iMotionFocus automatically learns motion patterns on every camera in a surveillance network to detect the most unusual and rare events in real time, allowing security operators to immediately view incidents. iMotionFocus enables operators to focustheir attention on the specific camera displaying an incident so they can initiate a more proactive response. The system continues to automatically learn and adapt to any changes in a scene such as environmental conditions.

iMotionFocus is unique in that it operates without applying scripted rules or configuring pre-scribe events. It does not require any interpretation or categorization of objects in a scene, which enables the system to efficiently operate over hundreds of cameras.

iMotionFocus integrates with XProtect® as an end-to-end solution: an XProtect® Smart Client plug-in delivers seamless workflow to users while a server-side plug-in mediates with iMotionFocus’ analytics engine executing on supplied server appliance(s).

Each iCetana server appliance can receive live video from multiple XProtect Recording Servers and process more than 100 streams. Detection events are shown in XProtect Smart Client as alarms, bookmarks and live video alerts. 

Key Features

  • Simple installation and easy to use: The iMotionFocus system is deployed on-site and is capable of handling hundreds of cameras that simply plug into the existing video network to access camera feeds directly from the XProtect software. There is no end user setup or configuration required

  • Wide baseline detection: Detects a wide array of unusual events in real time such as anti-social behavior, loitering, perimeter breaches, trespassing, trip and fall, people and vehicle congestion, crowd disturbances and unexpected people/vehicular movements

  • Video alerts: All generated video alerts are automatically tagged and recorded as alarms in XProtect for post-review analysis, and video alerts are displayed together with associated video in XProtect Smart Client. Operators can play back or bookmark an alert for closer inspection
