Vaion vcore 1.5 release: bookmark videos easily for collaboration and trigger counting area notifications

Despite the stressful times we’ve all been experiencing, we made the most of our home offices and challenged ourselves to stick to the monthly release schedule. Today, we’re ready to show you how to improve collaboration and analysis with video bookmarks, as well as how to trigger notifications on counting areas using rules in vcore release 1.5.

Video bookmarking

We’ve added video bookmarking to allow security teams to go back and analyze videos related to an incident. These could be videos that need more attention to determine what has happened or videos that will later be used as evidence.

First, the user finds the video clips of interest and then creates a bookmark. These bookmarks can then be found again easily and also be retained for longer than usual. In addition, they can be shared with other vcore users, which allows one user to share information with their colleagues easily. Once operators complete investigations, the video can either be exported to an archive or the bookmark removed.

A bookmarked video can also be turned into a link to be shared with users without access to vcore. For example, the specific video can be shared with people within internal departments, such as the HR department, or with external agencies, such as the police. Administrators can configure an access password and how long the clip is accessible for. Once created, the shared link can be viewed from anywhere in the world via Vaion vcloud. Watch an example below.

Object counting rules

Last month, we made people and vehicle counting available in vcore. Now, we’re expanding the feature with rules that enable operators to set and receive notifications based on different scenarios.

With vehicle counting, parking lot operators can have a clear picture of the number of vehicles entering and exiting, and if people park their cars in the right areas. In the video below, we explored a counting rule set for a store owner who wants to find out when visitors are using the employees’ parking spaces. Whenever the maximum number of vehicles established in the rules increases, his operator will get an instant notification. To increase visibility and the ability to respond fast, vcore sends the same notification in Slack in an appropriate channel.

Setting counting rules works in a variety of other scenarios as well. For example, retailers can set rules at the entrance of particular sections of their stores or in the cash register areas to learn when they need to optimize staffing and day-to-day operations.

vcore also accurately detects and counts vehicles and notifies traffic managers when congestions occur in vital areas or when incidents between multiple cars occur.
