Protean allows for the near real-time evaluation and distribution of critical information gathered from video and sensor inputs. It generates tailored alerts, recommended courses of action, and task lists that are appropriate to each operator’s level. Operator access can be configured so that users are restricted to certain views and subsystems based on individual clearance levels, while administrators can monitor real-time and historical user activity across the system.
Protean is currently used in security and surveillance applications for border protection, maritime and coastal security, anti-hijacking systems, and critical infrastructure protection.
Protean integrates seamlessly with many different types of cameras, including analog and IP. It provides complete video management tools for viewing, recording and replaying video through an integrated Network Video Recorder (NVR). Its easily configurable video display gives operators access to live video, recorded video, and video snapshots. Operators can digitally zoom any images on the display regardless of the source, and can listen to accompanying audio.
In addition, PTZ cameras can be controlled manually or configured to automatically zero in on alarm events. While the video is being recorded, meta- data related to the event is recorded and can be replayed at the same time. This allows security personnel to see exactly what led up to the alarm.
