Davantis Video Analytics

Perimeter security through video image analytics

DAVANTIS was founded in 2005 at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. We have spent a decade performing research and development into video analytics-based perimeter security solutions.

Our high level of specialisation and experience have made us experts, with more than 30% of our team devoted to developing new solutions with proprietary technology compatible with all existing security systems.

i-LIDS® Certification
The Davantis perimeter protection solution is certified as a primary monitoring system by the UK’s Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), specifically as an i-LIDS® approved primary detection system for operational alert use in sterile zone monitoring applications.
 

Not that many systems have achieved i-LIDS® strict evaluation criteria and Davantis is one of the select few manufacturers to join the primary monitor certification group.  With this certification, the Davantis system clearly demonstrates its high reliability for perimeter protection in all kinds of scenarios, with one of the absolute lowest false positives rates on the market.  “We are extremely proud of this certification as it must give real confidence to any customer that the system they are buying will behave exactly as we say it will. This certification from a highly prestigious independent entity says a lot about Davantis and its product”.

Perimeter Protection
Davantis video analytics has become a powerful and essential tool across sectors and industries for the protection of citizens, businesses and property.
In towns and cities – so resources can be prioritised and so efficiently and effectively allocated.
In mass transportation hubs – to face the particular challenges to safety and security that the modern age brings.
In critical infrastructure – to avoid the ramifications of failure, whether accidental or not.
In highways – to improve road safety and prevent accidents to ensure smooth traffic flow.
In government and military facilities – to ensure the heart of decision-making is maintained and assets protected.
In the retail sector – to enhance customer safety and improve operational performance.

Thermal Protection
Whilst Davantis video analytics will improve the effectiveness of any video surveillance system, you can significantly increase your level of protection through incorporating thermal imaging cameras.
These cameras work in almost every weather condition, including rain and snow, and in all light conditions – by daylight and in the brightest sunlight or the dullest day – and whether in crystal clear or polluted air or by moonlight or in the darkest of dark nights without external illumination.
 
Thermal cameras are also an excellent solution where long, straight perimeters are involved: indeed, with a range counted in the upper 100s of metres, one thermal camera can do the task of several standard ones.

Davantis video analytics take the innate power of thermal cameras to an even higher level through highly sophisticated proprietary algorithms and machine learning capabilities. These algorithms have been specifically designed to take into account the power of the cameras to work over much longer distances with the result that false alarms, such as those caused by external lights or shadows, are pretty much consigned to history.
 
As with all Davantis systems, setup and maintenance are easy, with special parameter configurations for thermal cameras. System operation remains simple and effective, thanks to our ClickThru™, 3-click alarm management.  As well as the detection power that comes with Davantis video analytics, you also get access to unbeatable, multilingual help desk support.

i-LIDS® Certification
The Davantis perimeter protection solution is certified as a primary monitoring system by the UK’s Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), specifically as an i-LIDS® approved primary detection system for operational alert use in sterile zone monitoring applications.

This certification from a highly prestigious independent entity says a lot about Davantis and its product”.

Central Management Software
A key strength of Davantis video analytics systems is that we also provide monitoring stations solutions – and these can be either stand-alone or integrated. This means you don’t have to replace any existing video management system because we will integrate our system and not compete with what’s already installed.

The list of monitoring station software products and companies we work with increases all the time and includes the biggest and the best.  (Click on the ‘Technology’ button / ‘Why Davantis?’ drop-down for a list of camera and monitoring station companies we work with.)

Superior Speed and Total Assurance
The point is that whether stand-alone or integrated, Davantis adds real power to your system.  Underlying the power of Davantis is the company’s uniquely powerful ClickThru™ technology.

This is a simple 3 mouse clicks alarm management system embedded within the monitoring station which allows proper assessment and appropriate action in just a matter of a few seconds rather than long minutes (the protocol is easy to define and readily changeable):

One click to see a snapshot highlighted by a square surrounding the cause of an alarm trigger, so allowing instant verification and action, if required…
 
One click to watch a 10 - second video clip to provide more detailed information (3 seconds before and 7 seconds after the trigger) to check on possible movement(s) at the trigger point…

One click to watch the live camera that’s been triggered.

DFUSION: Video Analytics with Deep Learning

Beyond Deep Learning

Deep Fusion combines our current market- leading videoanalytics, with the most advanced Deep Learning technology

Nothing will ever be the same again

Deep learning is changing the world of AI and applied to image analysis has proven effective distinguishing objects, and accurately ...classifying people, cars and other object types. However, you need to observe high-quality, well-lit images where the subject observed is relatively large and unobstructed.

These conditions are difficult to find in the CCTV environments where video analytics are used, which tend to be outdoor sites with complex, changeable conditions.

It is here where traditional video analytics has shown great efficiency at detecting small, moving objects any condition.

Can you have the best of both worlds?

DAVANTIS wants it all without sacrificing anything. That’s why we’ve developed Deep Fusion technology, which is capable of combining our market-leading ...traditional analytics, with Deep Learning.

Based on our continuous research in innovation and more than 15 years’ experience in the sector we have managed to combine the best of both worlds.

ATKPRO Optional Module

What happens when an intruder appears and disappears quickly from the field of view?

Sometimes intruders are detected but quickly disappear, and you can’t see where they have gone. With DAVANTIS and its ATKPRO module, this won’t happen to you.
When an intruder is detected, the Smart PTZ function positions the PTZ camera at the detection point. After positioning the camera, ATKPRO module takes control and automatically follows intruders as they move about the site. The PTZ video footage is sent to the CMS together with the alarm to give the operator a better view of the intruder and information about what they are up to and their location, even when outside the field of view of fixed cameras. Having analysed all the information, the CMS operator can trigger deterrent measures to force the intruder off the facilities. ATKPRO module, provides higher resolution images of intruders the moment they are detected, even outside the field of view of your fixed cameras.
