DORI (Detect, Observe, Recognize, Identify) is a standard system (EN-62676-4) for defining the ability of a person viewing the video to distinguish persons or objects within a covered area. The numbers in this table do not reflect intelligent function distances. For intelligent function distances, refer to installation and commissioning manual/project design tool.
IVS (Perimeter Protection) Intrusion, tripwire, fast moving (the three functions support the classification and accurate detection of vehicle and human); loitering detection, people gathering, and parking detection
Smart Object Detection Smart abandoned object; smart missing object
AcuPick Uses deep learning algorithms and works with back-end devices to accurately match targets, such as people and motor vehicles, and search through live and recorded videos to quickly locate targets.
Face Detection Face detection; track; snapshot; snapshot optimization; optimal face snapshot upload; face enhancement; face exposure; face attributes extraction including 6 attributes and 8 expressions; face snapshot set as face, one-inch photo or custom; snapshot strategies (real-time snapshot, quality priority and optimization snapshot); face angle filter; optimization time setting
People Counting Tripwire people counting, generating and exporting report (day/week/month/year); people counting in area and queue management, generating and exporting report (day/week/month); 4 rules can be set for tripwire, people counting in area and queue management.
