What is Audio Analytics used for?

Video surveillance systems are typically installed to record video footage of areas of interest within a facility, around its perimeter or in outdoor areas which require observation, with a view to “catching” (allowing the user to be able to observe) and recording events related to security, safety, loss prevention, operational efficiency and even business intelligence.
Video Analytics enhances video surveillance systems by performing the tasks of real-time event detection as well as post-event analysis, while saving manpower costs and increasing the effectiveness of the surveillance system operation.

Audio Analytics is added to give that extra attention to stay alert in situations where keeping an overview is hard. Also makes it possible to point out situation which video analytics cannot do by them selves, and provides early warning of possible escalation of situations:

  • aggression
  • gunshots
  • vehicle classification
