HD Video Surveillance – Foveal Imaging with Camera Eyes – Section I Video 11


The hard fact of video surveillance is that
any modern HD camera operating in ‘full capture’ mode will eventually CRUSH any wireless network.
OUR solution is to train the camera to capture ONLY ‘target rich’ footage and then transmit
ONLY the pixels necessary for prosecution. This approach has gained a new ally in Foveal
Imaging which is a new technology based on the human eye. The ‘sensor’ of the human eye is the retina
and the pixels that it uses to capture images are called ‘rods and cones’. The density of
these determines the sharpness of the image. There’s an area in the middle of our retina
called the ‘fovea’ that is PACKED with these marvels which decrease proportionately outward. Get close to the screen and take a look at
this image and TRY to concentrate on the center. How much clarity are you REALLY seeing around
the outer edges? The fovea represents 1 percent of OUR field
of view, which is 1 square millimeter of ‘retinal real estate’ BUT transmits 50 percent of our
visual information. If you want to see the size YOUR fovea, hold out your arm and view
the size of your thumbnail. This technology promotes a completely different
sensor design where a MASSIVE number of pixels are ‘over amped’ in their ability to define
light and color AND reach into darkness. If they were all turned on at once, the circuitry
would EXPLODE. Unlike an eyeball the computer moves this
minute ‘area of interest’ along the sensors’ surface. This synthetic fovea sits behind
a VERY wide angle lense and is able to track one or more subjects. Because most of the pixels are turned off
most of the time, the energy consumption is MUCH less allowing for smaller battery powered
wireless cameras. Now, our camera watchdogs can fire more precise
pixel artillery upon the invader.
