TAKING HIGH RESOLUTION VIDEO TO THE CLOUD SMART COMPRESSION COMPRESSION BY A FURTHER 90% ON TOP OF ALL OTHER COMPRESSION METHODS WITHOUT LOSS OF IMPORTANT DETAIL FROM IOMNISCIENT

Overview: New Cameras have increasingly high resolution. Today it is impractical to transmit video from a large number of high resolution video streams to the Cloud with the internet bandwidth that is available today even in most advanced countries. You then have a choice. You can transmit and record your video in the resolution of the camera – which requires an enormous amount of bandwidth and storage (and of course one needs fibre or other ultra high bandwidth network) Or You can transmit and record at a lower resolution which means that you have lost the detail that their cameras can pr

The new patented Smart Compression from iOmniscient solves this dilemma for you. It records every face, license number and significant event that is seen in the camera in high resolution while the rest of the video is recorded at low resolution. In every single frame of the video you never miss anything that is important. Equally you dont waste bandwidth and storage on anything that is unimportant. To enable Cloud Computing with high resolution cameras one needs enormous bandwidth to stream the video. With iOmniscient’s Smart Compression you can stream very low resolution video even while so

The Issues: Consider a user who installs a 2 mega-pixel camera. He can record the video at 2 mexa-pixels or he could reduce the image size and record at 1xCIF (equivalent to 0.1 megapixel). If he records at 2 megapixels (mp), it takes an enormous amount of storage and requires significant bandwidth for transmission. However, much of this resource is wasted as the network will be transmitting and the recording system will be recording a lot of useless information continuously because he does not wish to miss the small amount of important information that may be there. If he records at 1xCIF

The retail industry operates in a crowded environment with many separate events occurring simultaneously. The top priority for the retail industry is to increase sales. To achieve this, retailers need to have a good understanding of the flow of people through the shopping center to enhance customer service and use as a tool for marketing. Shopping Centers are constantly busy with people, therefore they are susceptible to terrorist attacks. For this reason, it is important to be able to find any abandoned objects which could potentially be dangerous, such as a bomb.

St Joseph’s Hospital - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

St Joseph’s Hospital

iOmniscient and St Vincents Group have partnered with each other to create a safer environment for aged loved ones. We have achieved this through the implementation of smart, efficient, and affordable IQ solutions.

  • For those who were feeble and yet mobile, the highest risk was that they might fall down when they were alone particularly in the bathroom. It could sometimes take hours before a fall was detected. The victim could have broken a hip or be in enormous pain.
  • Body worn devices could provide some level of fall detection but old people often forgot to carry the device. For privacy reasons it did not make sense to put cameras in places like bathrooms.
  • iOmniscient put together a solution involving a special depth sensing camera which could accurately detect falls viewing only the personʼs silhouette. An alarm is immediately sent to the carer ensuring a much faster response than had previously been possible.

The St Vincents Group is one of the foremost providers of Aged Care in Australia. They are in a continuous search for technologies and methods for improving the services they provide to those in their care in parallel with a search for productivity improvements to keep their costs down.

  • Old persons also often slept a lot on sofas or beds. It was important for the carer to ensure that there was some occasional movement and that the person had not died. The same depth sensing camera was used to keep a watchful eye on the patient without being intrusive.
  • Perhaps the biggest challenge was in the dementia wards where patients often escaped and then did not know how to get back. In these wards it was important to allow free movement to staff and visitors but to ensure that dementia patients did not wander off. iOmniscientʼs Face Recognition system for uncontrolled environments ensured that an alarm was raised if a patient attempted to leave the premises.

The system was first tried out at the Hutchinson Disease Ward of the St Josephʼs Hospital in Sydeny. Sufferers from this illness lose muscle control and can fall down often. Helen Miller, General Manager for the St Vincentʼs Aged Care Services said that the families of patients were delighted at the increased responsiveness and care provided to their sick relatives. The major risk factors were addressed without putting pressure on staff who were already stretched.
