Video Analytics Category Award Goes To BRSLabs At ISC West 2009

Winners of the 2009 Security Industry Association New Product Showcases (NPS) were announced yesterday at ISC West 2009. The video analytics category award goes to Behavioral Recognition Systems (BRS)  for AISight.

In contrast to traditional video analytics software, such as ObjectVideo , ioimage , Lenel , BRS does not need users to draw tripwire or region of interest (ROI) and define the rules. It uses a machine learning based approach to adaptively learn what behaviors or activities are "normal" in the scene, and issues alarms when finding some anomalies. 

As described in their website,

 Unlike rules-based video-analytics software, the intelligent AISight solution identifies threats and behaviors that were not previously defined or anticipated, and it does so with fewer false positives

In this sense, BRSLabs AISight is easy to deploy. On the other hand, it requires users to be clear what events they are not very intereted in, in order to learn the "normal behaviors" ahead of time.
