HaiVision and Obzerv Collaborate for Long-range Surveillance Video Encoding
Aug 9, 2007 12:00 PM
HaiVision Systems announced technical collaboration with Obzerv Technologies. This technical collaboration is aimed to assure codec performance for the specific attributes of video generated by long-range night surveillance cameras.
The rigors of such video include high contrasts, low-light scenes combined with rapid-scene motion created during long-range panning. The technical collaboration between Obzerv and HaiVision has been established to provide performance benchmarks during encoder development and market test activities. These testing procedures assure integrators that HaiVision’s codec systems are performance tunable for severe video applications. A first round of tests done earlier this year has already demonstrated excellent performance for an integration solution.
“Long-range night surveillance applications require very flexible bandwidth management capabilities, operation over unreliable networks, and high-quality efficient compression capable of dealing with scenes exhibiting fast moving and high dynamic range characteristics. Many encoders have trouble dealing reliably with such constraints, even freezing or interrupting services. We submitted HaiVision systems with pathological video sequences that tripped other systems and they came true perfectly,” says Deni Bonnier, president of Obzerv Technologies.
“High-end surveillance applications are critical by nature,” says Francois Gariepy, HaiVision’s president. “It matches perfectly the strengths of our codec products. Our collaboration with Obzerv will deliver a perfectly tuned integrated solution and eliminate risks for our mutual integration partners.”
