IC Realtech's Machine Learning

IC Realtech connects cameras & NVRs to state-of-the-art Machine Learning (ML/AI).

ML is an umbrella term that includes a variety of techniques that have driven radical advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Some kinds of ML - like Deep Learning with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) - get the most attention because their results are amazing and they require such massive computing power that the tech industry sees a sea-change opportunity in enabling computers to understand what’s happening in the real world.

The big innovation here is in applying ML to all video streams at a scale and price that has never been possible before. IC Realtech's multi-stage processing funnel eliminates spurious motion, adapts to the scene, ranks the importance of events, learns quickly from very few user interactions, and applies labels in real-time at low cost. The processing pipeline is not only extensible with hooks but also employs a variety of ML techniques including Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), Long Short-Term Memory Recurrent Neural Networks (LSTMs), and the most expensive CNNs. This enables people to exploit the latest advances from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, NVIDIA, etc… that would otherwise be extremely expensive. People get a real-time Search Engine for their own private video streams. It's a browse and search experience that is unprecedented in both speed and cost.

How it works

  1. Install one of our ICR Box products on the camera network. The Box will allow ella to break down your surveillance video into metadata and send it along to the secure server.

  2. The metadata is analyzed by state of the art Deep Learning, which then transforms it into searchable pieces of information.

  3. Use ella as your video surveillance search engine - the same way you search the internet today, with Natural Language (ex. If you try to search "man in a white shirt", you will be shown all the video segments gathered from all the cameras connected to ella that show a man in the white).

Any Device

Open to all video streams—including those you already have. Record with any Android, iOS, Browser, VMS, NVR, or IP camera.

Cloud Storage

IC Realtech's ella serves all your recorded video from the cloud, so you never have to worry about reliability or speed.

Personalized Alerts

Search-based video alerts tell you whenever something important happens that matches your query.

Smart search

Most video monitoring systems require you to sift through hours of video to find the events that matter. ella lets you zero-in on events in seconds (like people in blue or red on sidewalk in Chicago) or browse the highlights of the day at-a-glance across all your cameras

Technology that learns

Using the most advanced machine learning algorithms, ella is able to identify the most important events that were recorded. ella also learns what you care about from the way you use it, so it gets smarter over time, continuously improving your daily summaries and alerts.

Freedom of Choice

ella is an open platform for smart video monitoring. It scales from a single pet cam at home to 1000s of video streams in data centers. It works with all cameras, DVRs, NVRs, and VMSs that support standard H.264 RTSP video streams. Here is our list of suggested cameras, or if you are confused about setup and/or which cameras to choose? Let us help.
