Ipsotek’s award winning technology Tag and Track (TNT) has featured in an article for The Wall Street Journal. Tag and Track won the UK finals of the 2011 Global Security Challenge from a record number of entries.
Tag and Track (TNT) is a real-time multi-camera tracking technology designed for large video surveillance networks. TNT uses video content analysis (VCA) and pattern recognition technologies to continuously trace the path all people and vehicles take throughout the surveillance network. The main innovation of TNT is that it allows the real-time identification of suspects’ current location which is updated as TNT automatically follows suspects from camera to camera. This is particularly powerful where multiple suspects need to be tracked simultaneously. For forensic investigations, TNT will instantly generate a representation of all suspects journeys including video clips of any instances they appeared within a camera view. This is possible as searches for object tracks are performed on information generated from processed video (metadata) which avoids the time consuming task of revisiting hours of video following a serious incident.
