IDV Solutions' new solution for physical security, Visual Command Center (VCC), has a specialized bundle of tools and services for the security specialist. I'll lay out a few of the more interesting (from my perspective, anyways) use cases in a series of posts, starting with this one.
Context adds meaning. By accessing two separate feeds in a unified context, the utility of both are enhanced. In this case, I'll describe the benefit of blending live camera feeds and a drive-time service into a unified workflow.
Drive-Time service provides a fast and intuitive means of asking for sequential coverage areas by time, which reaches out to IDV's cloud-based transportation network and returns polygons for each coverage area. Here, I've asked for 1,2,3,4,and 5-minute rings from around a particular camera on California's I-5.
area-of-interest query, restricting the items in the feed list on the right to only those falling within. In this case, I'm interested in seeing cameras within a 5-minute driving range.
other methods of drawing areas of interest available from the toolbox...
