Security and public safety organizations shouldn’t waste resources anymore with the process of reviewing hours of video to identify and track people, NICE Systems announced recently, pointing out that time is money.
Now the company formally introduced NICE Suspect Search to the market, a new video analytics solution aimed at efficiently searching through multiple video sources to detect targets in a matter of minutes.
NICE Systems is a leading provider of software solutions that enable organizations to take the next best action in order to improve customer experience and business results, ensure compliance, fight financial crime, and safeguard people and assets.
The company’s solutions empower organizations to capture, analyze and apply, in real time, insights from both structured and unstructured Big Data, which could come from multiple sources, including phone calls, mobile apps, emails, chat, social media, video, and transactions.
Currently searching for a specific person over many cameras and locations, and across a broad period of time, is a demanding, lengthy and cost-consuming task that may end up being fruitless. With NICE Suspect Search, a search for an individual is initiated with a reference - based upon a recorded image, an uploaded full body photo, or by creating a composite. The system can simultaneously search for multiple targets in several cameras and by automatically filtering out 95% of irrelevant images and presenting the results by relevancy, an hour of video can be reviewed in less than a minute.
NICE Suspect Search can be useful in many use cases, including:
- Conducting a forensic investigation by analyzing multiple video sources following a crime to identify the perpetrator's route and actions;
- Tracking an intruder of a closed area or checkpoint breach;
- Finding a lost child within a critical window of time;
- Locating the owner of unattended luggage.
As a result, organizations can optimize their ongoing security and safety operations by:
- Enhancing forensic analysis of events;
- Improving response time;
- Preventing criminal activity;
- Reducing operational shutdown time.
"While the proliferation of cameras is an important trend in the security market, the burden of processing all of the data has limited the value of the video footage. Based upon our extensive work in the market, we've developed NICE Suspect Search, which is a ground breaking application that tackles that major pain point for our customers. Whether they are trying to find a suspect, understand who left behind a bag, or see where a child went, they may now have that answer in minutes" Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE Security Group explained.
The system is built on NICE's IP video management solution, NiceVision, and can be integrated with NICE's situation management solution, Situator.
It is currently deployed in several proof-of-concept (POC) projects around the world, including airports, mass transit, safe cities and major sporting events.
NICE solutions are used by over 25,000 organizations in more than 150 countries, including over 80 of the Fortune 100 companies.
