Advances in multimedia and interactive technologies


This manual will surely satisfy a wide range of readers: security and surveillance professionals, programmers, intelligence analysts, and probably even a paranoid home-owner--as long as she is not a mathematical lightweight. Approaching the concepts of video surveillance from a strongly theoretical and mathematically rigorous direction (the author is a signal and image processing specialist with expertise in development of mathematical models and algorithms for image analysis), the text dives head-first into moving object detection algorithms form the first chapter. Several mathematical models are treated in depth; the text moves then into practical applications: shape recognition, object identification, the problems of various adverse conditions (noise, lack of illumination, image classification) are covered, and industrial an quality control applications are described. The final two parts deal with an overview of video technology in general, and a brief tour through various devices and applications, including cameras, motion detectors and IP video surveillance systems. An interesting--and even enlightening--overview of this rapidly changing technology that is, for good or ill, is rapidly gaining importance in today's society.
