INVIDIA - Security Analytics powered by I-LIDS approved Davantis
Video Analytics has the ability to intelligently analyse a scene, and can drastically reduce the number of false and nuisance alarms generated by a CCTV system. With option to add on additional features such as Smart Scene, Smart Wire, and Smart Watch, Video Analytics can be used to protect an ever growing number of sites, in scenarios that would be almost impossible using any other technology.
The range of INVIDIA Video Analytics, built in partnership with DavantisTechnologies, have been awarded Primary i-LIDS accreditation from The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and The Centre for Applied Science (CAST). i-LIDS is a UK government benchmark for Video Analytics security systems. The I-LIDS Primary detection accreditation means that our systems are suitable to replace traditional methods of detection such as PIR and beam detectors.
The INVIDIA Range of Video Analytics offers compelling savings on both installation time and cost, as well as a proven return on investment for installers and end users, when compared to traditional systems. It can usually be added on to an existing IP or analogue CCTV system with minimal reconfiguration, and with the backup of our UK based technical support experts, you can be sure of a seamless transition to a more efficient detection system.
INVIDIA: Smart Track
Smart Track is our video analytics detection software platform and is the basis of all our systems. Smart track has embedded algorithms that can identify people or vehicles within the camera image. Other causes of activations such as animals can also be classified and identified or excluded as required. On activation the alarm can be transmitted to an operator with a clear highlight around the cause of the alarm.
INVIDIA: Smart Wire
Smart Wire video analytics allows the user to create any number of virtual lines anywhere on the scene. The line can be single or multiple direction and only alarms when the classified object (person, vehicle or other) has completely crossed the line. This can be used to identify vehicles travelling the wrong way or people moving towards a restricted area.
INVIDIA: Smart Scene
Smart scene video analytics will identify and alarm when a classified object (person, vehicle or other) has remained within a scene for a given length of time. This means that people or vehicles travelling through a scene are ignored but if they become stationary within the scene an activation is created. Can be used for illegal parking or people loitering in critical areas.
INVIDIA: Smart Watch
Smart Watch video analytics analyses the scene and recognises when an object has either been added or taken away from the scene. A box highlights the left or removed object. The activation is then stored locally and sent remotely.
The INVIDIA:S is our standard unit, suitable for rack mounting, and with options for the full suite of features. The :S can be licensed for up to 8 channels of analytics, depending on your needs.
The INVIDIA:Q, or Qube, can be licensed for up to 4 channels, with options to add the full suite of features as needed. The Qube is not rack mountable, and is designed for smaller installations where rack.
Davantis IP Compact
The Davantis IP Compact is the latest innovation in video analytics. This Ultra small form factor unit has been designed specifically for use with the Flir T43 Bullet Camera, to provide a reduced cost option for sites that require 4 or less channels of thermal detection. The IP compact does not contain Physical outputs, and can only be used with up to 4 Flir T43 Bullet cameras.

The Tailgate Detector, TDflex™, is an award winning anti-tailgating solution that ensures only authorized people enter a secure area by adding an additional security layer to existing access control systems.
The TDflex can be utilised with the following access points:
Access Points without doors.
Based on 3D MLI Sensor™ technology, the Tailgate Detector works with access control systems by intercepting the signal emitted from the ID reader and determining whether the access point is open or closed. The sensor then establishes whether or not a single individual is attempting access and, in the event of dual or unauthorized access, can trigger an alarm or prevent the access point from opening.
If you are considering using the TDflex, please get in touch with us to discuss your needs and potential applications, our specialist team will be able to advise and assist you in designing, specifying and installing your system, and on integration with your access control platform.
NeoFace® Watch is a high performance facial recognition software application for real time video surveillance, offline video face search, and high volume face search. NeoFace Watch is designed to be scalable from a one camera system on a single site, up to thousands of cameras over many sites, with a slick, web based application that enables access to the system from anywhere.
NeoFace is independently recognised as the fastest and most accurate face recognition software on the market, as it acquired the top rank in FRVT2013, an independent test conducted by the U.S Government. These tests showed that NeoFace was the most accurate facial recognition software tested, even with low quality images, and has the most resilience to variance in angle, age and race.
Traditional facial recognition systems require considerable hardware power in order to provide real time analysis of the multiple faces in a crowd, NeoFace Watch utilises the cost effective processing power of Graphics Processing Units, which can mean a reduction in the hardware costs of a system in relation to other systems available.
Some of the Features of NeoFace Watch
Detecting Subjects in a crowd:
Real-time detection of known persons in a crowd, using CCTV cameras strategically positioned to capture the faces of people passing through. Alerts can be created, and sent to various devices such as smartphones, as soon as a known subject is detected.
Protecting Secure Zones
NeoFace can be used to add an additional layer of protection to secure zones, everyone who has authorisation to be in the zone can be enrolled into the system, and NeoFace will identify them, whereas anyone who is not recognised is a potential intruder, and an alert can be created to notify security staff of the potential threat.
Recorded CCTV footage can be searched through historically for persons of interest. In addition to this, large quantities of images can be searched through to achieve the same result.
Watch lists can be replicated between multiple sites, to ensure that when someone is added to a list on one site, they are recognised on any other site they visit

ANPR is an efficient system for capturing and recording vehicle number plates and triggering an appropriate action, such as raising a barrier. Our Intelligent Number Plate Recognition (INPR) can be configured to trigger different actions, depending on the time of day, or individual vehicle. INPR can also be used to determine which vehicles have entered a premises, and the system can also be easily searched using several criteria.
Our INPR system can interact with a large number of devices, including gates; traffic lights and LED signs, and grant access depending on whether the plate is in your list of authorised users. Hotlists can also be used to ensure that only staff have access to staff only car parks, or to send an SMS or E-mail alert when an important visitor, or urgent delivery arrives on site.
The system features a comprehensive search function, allowing you to search for specific number plates across your entire site, or at specific entry/exit points. The system can also be fitted with an overview camera that provides a wider image of the vehicle as it is detected, as well as the number plate, and time of entry/exit.
A typical INPR System will normally consist of one or more INPR cameras, A Video Capture Card, A Relay card to trigger outputs such as barriers, and an INPR Computer. Unlike many other systems which require additional video processing boards, our INPR will run on a standard Windows based PC, and can process up to four lanes of High speed traffic using one capture card. We have various different cameras available to suit different types of installation, where vehicles may be approaching from different angles, or through a wider than normal lane.
