More Details


The company addressed Softeq to develop an integration solution for two video platforms. The first is the client’s video surveillance system and the second is a third-party video analytics platform.

One of the challenges was that the two systems operated different domain models. So, the solution needed to have an adapter to transfer data between them. Softeq had to develop an integration solution so that the two systems would work together.

In the event of an incident, the solution would allow security officers to work faster. They would be able to pinpoint people and objects of interest rapidly. The platform would allow them to review hours of video data in a few minutes.


Solution Design

The Softeq engineers built a solution to enable the integration of a video content analytics platform with the customer’s enterprise video management system. The solution consists of two parts:

1. A proxy web service for video and metadata transmission between the customer’s video storage and the analytics platform
2. A plugin to display the analytics platform UI in the customer’s web portal

Using the solution, the customer will be able to comprehensively and quickly analyze a video snippet within a specified interval. The solution helps:

  • Simultaneously collate objects or people that have appeared at different times within the video
  • Through accurate object recognition technology, the system uses advanced multi-camera search to identify people and vehicles, as well as any other item
  • Search for objects similar in appearance
  • Search and identify the location and distance between individuals
  • Extract and aggregate video metadata

The solution utilizes security protocols selected by the customer.
