On Sept. 20, Surf Solutions announced the official launch of its new SurfSight product line. SurfSight is a smart and robust surveillance solution with cyber security capabilities, that can gather and consolidate video from multiple sources in real time.
SurfSight connects remote sites and moving vehicles with the video surveillance network and provides secure distribution and access capabilities for ad-hoc viewers- on any device and on any network.
“One of the challenges of surveillance networks is the ability to reach a large number of remote cameras in real time, while reliably processing video feeds under unstable networks conditions or in limited bandwidth environments”, explains Niv Kagan, VP of Products at Surf. “Most surveillance networks are closed systems that allow transfer of video feeds only between a limited number of pre-defined users and cameras. These systems can’t offer secure access, video sharing and viewing capabilities to ad-hoc users at any location, and this limits their ability to inform multiple parties of situations as they occur in real time.”
SurfSight addresses the growing surveillance market by extending the reach of video surveillance from cameras to mobile devices.
The SurfSight solution is comprised of two main products which may operate independently or together: SurfSight Edge and SurfSight Core.
SurfSight Edge gathers and consolidates a large number of video feeds from remote sites over limited network bandwidths, while adjusting the video stream to changing network conditions. This ensures optimal transmission quality in real time (<200 ms latency) while achieving up to a 90% reduction in bandwidth usage.
In addition, SurfSight Edge features computer vision capabilities that allow for event based detection, including pre-defined face and motion alert parameters- for intelligent recording and streaming.
SurfSight Core allows secure distribution of multiple video feeds to remote destinations in real time, without exposing access to the surveillance network. It also allows remote viewers to view and contribute real-time video to the network securely from any mobile device.
Together, the SurfSight product line allows stakeholders to achieve total situational awareness and effectively take action if and when needed.
