Chapter

Getting Started Nextiva Review is an application that is used to view, record, and replay surveillance video. Live video is available for viewing from cameras connected to local or remote sites. Realtime activity can also be recorded on demand. Operators can use Review to retrieve and display recorded video from a recorder or storage device, including video recorded during an alarm event. Nextiva Review contains several features for reviewing surveillance video, including: „

Camera maps, which are interactive visual representations of facility layouts and camera locations.

„

Export functions, for transferring video to a local or network drive, or burning it to a writable compact disc (CD).

„

An investigation management system, used by authorized personnel to gather case-related data from recorded video.

„

The Image Toolkit, used to enhance individual still frames of video.

The application window provides a user-friendly layout, and is divided into various sections that make it easy to customize views. Along with System Requirements, this chapter contains the following procedures: „

However, running two instances of Nextiva Review will result in increased CPU usage. When you attempt to start a second instance of Nextiva Review, the following information box appears:

Verint Video Intelligence Solutions

1: Getting Started

This message box is simply a reminder, and clicking OK allows you to continue. However, no more than two instances of Nextiva Review can be run at the same time.

Connecting to Multiple Sites A site is comprised of a Nextiva system that includes a Nextiva Master Server or Master Recorder and a number of connected servers and components. Nextiva supports connections to multiple sites on the same network through the Review interface. Operators can therefore log in and view video from another site without having to log out of the current session. Note: When using this option, note that Nextiva Review must run on the same network where the Multiple Site option was configured with Nextiva Control Center. The following features are available when an operator connects to multiple sites through Review: „

All cameras connected to the site, export video, and pan/tilt/zoom control of PTZ cameras.

„

Bookmarks can be added to video from cameras connected to the site (the bookmark list and query function is for the local site only).

„

Alarms from the other sites are received in Review, and can be accessed through the search. Review automatically logs in to the site when the operator selects an alarm in the search results, and displays the Alarm mode window.

Note: Permission to use these features depends on the user access rights of the operator. Nextiva sites and user privileges are configured in the Nextiva Control Center application.

14

Verint Video Intelligence Solutions

Nextiva Review Operator Guide

To connect to multiple sites through Review: 1. Select the required site from the Site drop-down list, located above the camera tree in the navigation pane.

A login dialog box appears if your login credentials are the same for both the local and the selected site. 2. Enter the User Name and Password for the remote site if prompted to do so. 3. Click Login. Nextiva Review switches to the selected site and the cameras connected to that site load in the camera tree. Review displays the remote site only; local site information does not appear. 4. Select the local site from the Site drop-down list, and return to your current location when required.

1: Getting Started

Establishing a Remote Connection Users can launch Review and view video over a secure remote connection by accessing Nextiva sites through their corporate virtual private network (VPN). Nextiva sites are configured for remote connectivity in Nextiva Control Center. Depending network or Internet traffic, optimal video quality may be unavailable when viewing video remotely, and the speed in which the video stream is displayed can be slow. The amount of bandwidth (limited, full, or best available) and the type of connection (local or remote) appears in the Review status bar at the bottom right of the interface. Note: Expect a performance delay if using low bandwidth.

The remote connection is unavailable if the maximum number of users have accessed the site remotely. A high-priority user always has access to the site, and operators with lower priority therefore lose connectivity.

„

Play Live Video on New Alarm: Review automatically displays live video from a camera associated with the alarm event when this option is set to On. This applies only to alarms where the priority is equal to, or above, the Alarm Priority Threshold. Note: Only one live video window will open for a camera in cases where more than one alarm occurs.

Setting Video Quality Preferences The Video Quality preferences in Review are as follows: „

Deinterlacing Mode—Video frames are made up of a number of fields, each containing a portion of the image. The process of displaying these fields together so that they appear as a single frame is called interlacing. Deinterlacing converts interlaced video into a non-interlaced state in order to provide a higher viewing quality. This process also requires more CPU.

The following deinterlacing settings are available for live and recorded video: †

None—No deinterlacing filter is used. This option provides the lowest viewing quality but also uses the least amount of CPU processing.

†

Fast—Provides a quick deinterlacing filter on the video, without taking too much CPU load. This is the default for live video.

†

Full—Provides a more extensive deinterlacing filter. This option uses the most CPU. It is the default for recorded video and is especially recommended when a still image is required.

Changes to the deinterlacing mode are affective immediately. „

Remote Video Quality—Determines the video quality for streaming live and recorded video when connected to a site remotely.

The following settings are available: †

Limited—Decreases the video quality so low-speed connections can receive the video stream at a quicker rate.

†

Full—Provides the normal video quality for the stream. This option uses the most bandwidth.

†

Best Available—The server decides the video quality for the stream, according to the best amount of available bandwidth on the network.

To set video quality preferences: 1. Click the Tools and Configuration button on the application toolbar, then select Preferences. The Preferences dialog box appears.

Exporting Video Operators use Review to export video files (in AVI format) to a local or network drive, or to a writable compact disc. The workstation must have a writable CD-ROM drive in order to export video to a CD. As the video file is created during the export process, it is encoded with a specific coder/decoder (codec). This codec is used by the operating system (or program) to properly play video in a particular format. The same codec is required in order to decode these files for playback on different a computer, or from a CD. The required codec is exported, along with the video file. The following occurs during export: „

11. Drag the slider left or right across to determine the Block Size and Contiguous Blocks. The block size setting must correspond to the size of the objects to be detected. The next step is to set the sampling resolution. This is the rate at which Review performs the activity scan. A higher rate speeds up the scanning process, but may cause the system to miss some activity. 12. Go to the Set sampling resolution section of the dialog box.

13. Select the required motion rate (for example, two seconds) using the fields provided. This determines the number of seconds one video frame is analyzed. The system divides the image into blocks (like a grid), and calculates the average color of each block. The color of the corresponding block is compared with the first frame. This determines whether the block contains moving objects.
