Deterred from effectively using security cameras because of the need to watch or reprise their output? SecurityInfowatch calls our attention to a new service that creates synopses of video monitoring, allowing 24 hours to be reprised in 20 seconds or so. Pretty helpful, says editor Geoff Kohl, for finding “that needle-in-the-haystack incident.”
BriefCam Ltd. has a demonstration clip of its video synopsis technology made at the Stuttgart Airport. It reminds us of a 21st century update of a Charlie Chaplin movie. But the system seems to have value for insuring that no surveillance video footage goes unmonitored or unretrieved if needed.
