Video Surveillance is in the market for decades and has become a most sought after solution wherever physical security is of concern. With analytics space growing video surveillance is not anymore a threat detection (monitoring and recording) solution but is becoming a threat prevention solution and is also expanding in the areas where video and image analysis can lead to the prediction of the outcome such as quality of the crops.
With the focus on video streaming and analysis from the day of its inception, GS Lab has been serving customers working in this area and have added major names in its portfolio. GS Lab currently works with two major clients in the area of video surveillance and caters to all areas of product right from product requirement, feature design, development, testing, deployment and support to the end customer. By supporting the end users from varied domains such as airports, defence, universities, stadiums etc. has given GS Lab deep insight into customer needs and their pain points. Some of the recent features engineered at GS Lab are:
After the attack on Brussels airport there was a request from one of the European airports if the video surveillance can covert the live and recorded video. The reason was to safeguard sensitive information from the people who have access to the system but are not the administrator of the system. Though the feature sounds simple and straightforward the complexity was in providing or removing the access at the user and camera level and media server which provides access to the streams having no information about the user. GS Lab designed and engineered this feature and is now at use at the airport.
HTML5 based video player:
As most of the video surveillance managers in the market have plugin based video players for browsers and with browsers removing support for the plugins, there is an urgent need to move to a non-plugin HTML5 based video player. The biggest challenge in video surveillance is latency. Moving from RTSP based streaming to HTTP based streaming the latency increases. GSLab took this challenge and delivered HTML5 based video player with a live latency of 5 seconds.
Apart from this GS Lab has setup a dedicated camera connector team which is well versed with proprietary standards of major camera manufacturers such as HIKVision, Bosch, Pelco, Axis, Cisco, Vivotek etc. and common standards such as ONVIF.
