CathexisVision software offers multiple levels of users, each with a unique username and password. Administrators can manage users across the site, or across multiple sites, from a central location CathexisVision 2020 Newly…

Database Shredding

Optional database shredding is a new feature that enables permanently destroying video older than the user-defined recording limit. This option offers the benefit of securing data privacy and security by destroying information and preventing it from getting into the wrong hands. The feature also has the secondary advantage of freeing up the database, and removing the worry of running out of recording space. It makes an invaluable contribution to the software, giving users greater power and agency over how recording is stored.

Extended filtering to scheduled metadatabase reporting

Cathexis is defined by its powerful integration capability and the metadatabase stores third party system information. Knowledge of, and control over, the metadatabase is achieved through scheduled metadatabase reporting, which allows users to create and edit reports, as well as search the metadatabase to extract information. In our 2020 software, extended filtering has been added to scheduled metadatabase reports, which enhances the reporting process, making it even easier for users to find the information they are looking for.

Video Ageing

Video ageing has been developed in response to customer demand for video to be managed more economically, both in terms of space and size. Cathexis has answered this call by building a dynamic tool for our 2020 software. This feature allows video footage in one database to be transcoded, in a reduced size, and stored for a longer time in a second database.

Motion recording made simple

We have introduced a simplified “motion recording” feature, which enables users to very quickly add motion recording to cameras or groups of cameras. While this feature does include some advanced settings (like flare and noise reduction), it does not replace our advanced Video analytics and event management system, which remains in place for more sophisticated configurations.

Camera Wizard

Our Camera Wizard has been improved and refreshed. This feature explains all the steps needed to add a camera, as well as allowing the creation of databases, schedules, and events along the way. In 2020, the end stage of the camera wizard has been made more efficient and scheduled recordings, motion recordings, and analytics recordings can be configured here.

Heatmaps

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.

Bookmarking

new bookmarking feature provides a simple way to recall specific moments or incidents that were captured on live or pre-recorded footage. This feature provides the ability to preserve camera layouts in live or review mode, creating a bookmark that cannot be overwritten..

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.

Text and Graphics overlays

CathexisVision has added even greater functionality to its video overlays to display text and other information from resident and third-party devices on the camera panels. Cathexis now has the ability to re-position text overlay blocks, and to change overlay sizes, text sizes, transparency and colour. We also now have the ability to overlay graphics (like active graphs for a metal detector integration or vehicle and driver images for ANPR).

Snap Search

The CathexisVision Adjacent Camera Mapping Feature allows for simplified and accurate camera selection, streamlining the process to follow people or specific incidents taking place on site, by eliminating the need to remember camera names and locations in a crisis.

New API for integration

The new Application Programming Interface (API) provides for added functionality and more contemporary HTTP/RTSP/SIP protocol. In addition, it provides a user-friendly solution to interface third party systems, including: Building Management Systems, Physical Security Information System (PSIM) and Situational Awareness Platforms. Cathexis has also added a sample application to make the integration simpler and perform intermittent troubleshooting.

Camera Anti-Tamper Tamper

CathexisVision 2017 comes with complete anti-tamper technology, which will notify the control room via an alarm in the event of any IP surveillance camera tempering, including: lens covering or spray painting. Clients can also include a user-defned specific action for the alarm, to which the person tampering with the device will be unaware of.

64-Bit Operating Systems

CathexisVision 2017 is well-equipped for future enhancement, and this has been achieved through signi­ficantly improving the overall operating system. Clients will benefit from the fact that CathexisVision software makes full use of recording and client viewing server hardware.

Alarm Management Gateway

The CathexisVision Alarm Manager software provides this interface with complete alarm logs and the ability to “escalate” alarms to supervisors. A comprehensive reporting facility is included in the software. Similarly, when monitoring multiple sites from a central location, the alarm manager receives alarms from the various sites and provides an automatic connection to the sites initiating the alarm. Alarm video previews with pre- and post-event clips can be automatically downloaded and archived at the control room.

Failover

CathexisVision provides complete redundancy by way of its elegant failover feature. This ensures that if any recording and video management server fails on a site, a “failover server” will automatically perform the tasks of the failed server. To add to this, when the failed server is replaced, all configuration and recorded footage will be automatically ported back to the replacement server. This ensures that your site runs seamlessly through the whole process.

CatObserver

CatObserver is a feature that enables a selected viewing monitor to be configured as a “virtual camera” so that all the activity viewed on this computer screen is recorded. Advantages include easy archiving and access to all that an operator has viewed during an incident without having to archive or access multiple cameras’ footage.

Health Monitoring

We regard system “up-time” as paramount. The Cathexis Health Manager provides real-time analysis of the system and can be configured to send alarms to selected recipients if problems are detected. Camera failures, hard drive analysis, environmental conditions, communication integrity, software errors, and many more parameters are monitored to provide peace of mind. The software also provides full reporting capability to enable you to generate system status reports.

Video Analytics

CathexisVision provides its own analytics suite as well as the facility to integrate on-camera (Edge) analytics. Algorithms provided by Cathexis include a multi-zone “SMART” learning motion detection algorithm, abandoned or removed object detection, loitering, speed, direction, line crossing, queue length analysis and object counting. Our user friendly interface allows you to easily configure the algorithms, using both live and recorded video footage.
