Initially crafted as a white label solution, SELISE Video Explorer T eventually grew to stand for a lot more. Known as VET for short, shaped up to become an advanced surveillance solution that supports a USB source and allows the user to review/analyze recorded videos from either a desktop or a laptop.
It can read information from both Linux (EXT2 and EXT3) and Windows (NTFS) hard drives, and currently supports AVI, MP4, H.264 & MJPEG formats for playback. Individuals can use markers to pinpoint events of particular interest on the footage, and maps to specify their locations. The application also boasts a wide array of options for viewing videos. At its best, the app can play up to six videos side by side, simultaneously. If necessary, the six frames can be merged and exported as one single video as well.
All in all, the multilingual and user friendly User Interface with a short learning curve makes for a very capable (and pretty awesome) analytical tool for relevant entities.
Technologies that have gone into the app of this video explorer are .Net, MVVM, Prism and XML.
The desktop application is targeted towards small to medium businesses such as retail stores, warehouses and hotels, as well as large scale transit-service providers such as airports and railways. In the future, the application could evolve into a camera companion or a video surveillance companion that directly interacts with the hardware to extract and organize information.
For now, the app complements the surveillance activities undertaken by RUF Telematik and adds a level of sophistication to it.
