Audio Analytic Ltd, the emerging leader in sound classification technology, and AxxonSoft, one of the world leading developers of open VMS and PSIM platforms, are pleased to announce a licensing agreement in which Audio Analytic’s sound recognition technology is now integrated into the Intellect Enterprise physical security management platform from AxxonSoft.
This integration of audio detection and classification technology will allow Intellect Enterprise to automatically alert security operators to a range of security related events, including: car thefts or break-ins (car alarm detection), and office or building break-ins (glass break detection). This allows the system to detect crimes and events by analysing audio; detect events off-camera or in areas where cameras are not located; and detect events regardless of lighting conditions. The individual analytics will be available to AxxonSoft customers as optional features when purchasing Intellect or as future upgrades. In the next version of Intellect Enterprise detection of verbal and physical violence in hospitals, prisons, reception areas, etc. (aggression detection) will be integrated.
Audio Analytic’s technology can recognize complex sounds by using advanced psychoacoustic modelling - the science behind how humans distinguish and understand the meaning of sound. The Audio Analytic CoreLogger™ sound recognition software is designed to be easily integrated into third party products and systems, and can detect a variety of sounds depending on the type of Sound Packs™ installed with high levels of ambient noise.
"Intellect Enterprise already has powerful video analytics, with real-time video detection tools and video archive features. By combining these with industry-leading audio analytics, our product will be able to intelligently detect and respond to more types of threats, with even greater effectiveness," said Dmitriy Gorbanev, Technical Director at AxxonSoft.
"We are very excited about this collaboration. AxxonSoft’s Intellect platform is a highly featured solution capable of delivering significant value to customers. With the addition of integrated audio analytics such as glass break and car alarms, Intellect now has the capability to detect a broad range of complex security related events that at present either require separate sensors or are not currently possible using video only solutions." said Dr. Christopher Mitchell, CEO of Audio Analytic.
The new capabilities will be on show during the up and coming Security Essen 2012 exhibition in Essen, Germany from the 25th to 28th September at the AxxonSoft Booth in Hall 2, Stand 319.
AxxonSoft is a leading software developer that combines IP-based physical security management, intelligent video surveillance, and an enterprise-wide platform into fully integrated vertical and horizontal solutions. Over 250 highly-qualified specialists work at AxxonSoft, and the company has 33 offices throughout the world and partners with more than 2500 security and video surveillance system installation and integration companies.
