Camera Integration

1000’s of cameras are already supported and further camera integration has been added. Cathexis has added over 400 new IP Camera integrations, including cameras from the following brands: Arecont, ARH, Axis, Avtech, Bosch, Cisco, CP Plus, Dedicated Micros, Mobotix, Pelco, Sightlogix, TruVision, Uniview, and Vivotek.


Heat-maps can be applied as overlays to selected cameras for a quick overview of areas of motion within a camera view. The heat-map shows a colour-map overlay on the video depicting the amount of motion within that camera view. With this new feature, CathexisVision uses data collated from the Motion Database in order to indicate areas of motion.

Reference Image Management

This feature provides the ability to ensure that cameras are always showing the desired view, thereby flagging deliberate or inadvertent camera tampering or position shifts. Any movement of the camera, or change in the camera view against a reference view, will be indicated in this feature with the percentage change of the current camera view vs the reference image shown.
Our sophisticated Adaptive Pattern Matching algorithm ensures that even in variable environmental conditions, the reference image comparisons are accurate. This means that if you set up a camera reference image in the daytime, the algorithm will “adapt” when compared against a night-time image. We also provide the ability to export the reference images for later retrieval.

Cyber Security – Encryption

In accordance with our ongoing quest to ensure system and data integrity, we have added improved security measures to our system. In addition to the existing secure, internal systems communication encryption, CathexisVision now supports encryption for all external site connections, and offers four, selectable encryption levels. We have also added secure IP camera connection and data encryption to further enhance security.

Object Classification / Neural Networks

CathexisVision Video Analytics now uses Neural Network technology to enable us to classify objects (humans, vehicles, animals etc). When added to our sophisticated video analytics suite (which includes line-crossing and speed detection), object classification enhances our ability to create a more accurate decision-making environment and dramatically reduces false alarms. This  improves the effectiveness of the system.
In addition to real-time alerts, we also provide an Object Classification database, which allows users to search for objects, and associated metadata and video footage,  for simple forensic analysis.
