Resolutions are Increasing Faster than Moore’s Law. From 2009 to 2014, video resolutions increased from SD (640x480) to 4K (3840x2160). That’s 27 times more raw pixels. In the same period of time, the processing power of GPUs increased by 33x, but Moore’s Law saw CPUs increase by only 10.3x. New aerial and space sensors are here, but are your software and hardware prepared to process all that data?
California-based MotionDSP began making Ikena Spotlight about five years ago to redact video from surveillance cameras. Since then, the company has added algorithms to redact footage from cameras in motion -- such as body cams -- and is getting ready to launch the latest version this spring with audio redaction and modulation, improved tracking and a faster workflow for decoding and encoding video.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), more commonly referred to as drones, have been a popular topic among both businesses and law enforcement agencies due to growing interest in their use in non-military applications. Police departments can deploy drones to improve their ability to enforce the law and protect lives, all while saving valuable resources like police officer time and tax dollars.
Drones will soon be blended into our everyday lives. They will be easier to fly — even autonomous. They will fly themselves on preset courses safely without a pilot. Then innovative computer vision and image processing algorithms will help analyze the drone imagery and convert the data into useful information in real time. Flying cameras plus high performance computing plus fast data processing technology equals more accurate answers than we have ever had at our fingertips.

Today, with detection tracking algorithms and video enhancement programs, the company’s applications help explore the critical topic of how to maximize the efficiency of military and forensic analysts by removing routine tasks from the individual. “Trained analysts are very good at what they do,” said Varah. “However, their skills lie in understanding human behavior and what is happening in a given situation. Through this software, they can spend more time thinking, and less time working to get there.”
