Value Creation with Security Products & Services

Providing image analysis solutions that contribute to security and safety of public facilities

In recent years, it has become increasingly important to take measures to prevent terrorism and vicious crime, both in and outside of Japan. In particular, we’re seeing an increase in the number of security personnel and security cameras, especially at airports and other facilities where large numbers of people gather. Against this background, there is a heightening need for the implementation of a more efficient and effective security system.


JVCKENWOOD is developing and providing such products as Intelligent Video Analytics(IVA) and integrated-control facial recognition systems to serve as a new image analysis solution. These systems help improve security and safety of our communities with higher precision while reducing the amount of manpower and work needed. This is achieved by real-time analysis of enormous amounts of videos coming in from security cameras, and with speedy recognition of specified visitors. We are aiming to newly implement security camera systems that are combined with these aforementioned services by the end of fiscal 2018, in order to contribute to counterterrorism and other measures to ensure security and safety at public facilities. We are planning to actively offer these solutions to the market in order to answer the needs of society, both in and outside of Japan.


* Intelligent Video Analytics(IVA): Analytics software that discerns events, attributes, and behavioral patterns through video analysis of the monitored environment.


Development of IVA

IVA is a system that not only records live videos of the surroundings 24 hours a day, as with traditional surveillance cameras, but also conducts image analysis of the recorded videos in real time. The system is equipped with an advanced real-time alert function, which identifies suspicious unattended objects as well as incursions into restricted areas and sounds the alarm, practically in real time. Furthermore, the system creates a database of all the real-time analysis that it has performed, thus storing an immense amount of metadata to allow the performance of complex and comprehensive searches at an amazing speed. IVA, which can integrate and monitor a maximum of 500 cameras, shows promise in being utilized for a variety of purposes that include not only accident and crime prevention but also marketing and other activities.

Development of integrated management-type face recognition system

The integrated-control facial recognition system detects and sends notice in real time of the presence of specified individuals whose facial information has been registered in advance. This makes it possible to be vigilant against criminals and people who are known to have disturbed the public peace in the past, without having to be dependent on traditional methods of human visual observation, thereby helping to strengthen anti-crime measures. In addition to preventing crime, this system is expected to help provide proactive assistance for VIPs. Thus, in the future, we expect this system to expand its presence in the market for its ability to enhance vigilance precision while also reducing required manpower.
