The Memoreyes Video Safety System Prevents Crimes | #Memoreyes #CrimePrevention #Safety #SituationalAwareness | Memoreyes™, the Video Safety System that thinks and acts like a human, fights crime by being aware of its surroundings.
“I like to call it SAT, which is an acronym for Situationally Aware Technology,” says John Collings, founder and CEO, Memoreyes of Atlanta. “The system uses artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor the environment and to then deter unwanted behavior when necessary. Our system not only detects and documents events at high resolution for future use, but it’s designed to see the right thing at the right time.”
The underlying premise behind the Memoreyes system is SAT, and that’s achieved through the use of a highly effective sensor package comprised of thermal imaging, radar, and sound. In a word, it enables the AI portion of the system, which is called ‘The Director,’ to literally see a 360-degree area. In fact, the Memoreyes system is built upon the understanding that ‘There’s more that goes on outside a camera’s field of view than in it.’
Using a cellular App, the Model 360, the ‘All Property’ system, is able to differentiate between people who belong and those that do not. Once authentication takes place, the Director is able to track unknowns in relation to known individuals. The system makes decisions based on multiple criteria, such as interception paths, velocity of an unknown versus a known target, sounds, and others things.
“The Memoreyes system networks with other cameras in the system to follow an event to its conclusion. Each camera knows where to look all by itself,” says Collings. “No ordinary video system can do that!”
The Memoreyes App enables authenticated users to request that the system ‘follow’ them as they proceed through an outdoor area. A good application for this might be a young lady heading for the dorms as she leaves the library on a college campus. She can get immediate help as well by pressing the panic button. Another application is a retail store manager carrying a money bag as they make their way through a dark parking lot to their car for a drive to a local bank.
The Memoreyes system doesn’t wait for an authorized user to request help. If it ‘sees’ that an unknown target is moving at a high velocity in an intercept path with a known individual, the Director will begin flashing lights and issuing audible warnings. The Memoreyes Model 100, ‘Entrance System,’ is equipped with seven HD cameras–four that provide a 360-degree view, and three for license plate reading.
Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees. The Camera Housing
The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.

Chinese Government Blocks IPVM | #TpromoCom #China #Censorship #Politics | IPVM has been blocked by the Chinese government without any notice or explanation. This means IPVM.com is no longer officially accessible anywhere in China. The move comes as Hikvision and Dahua face a global pushback over their track record on human rights, cybersecurity, and Chinese government ties – pressure that is in part motivated by IPVM’s reporting.

Startup Company Catalog to Develop DNA Data Storage Technology | #TpromoCom#Data#DNA#Network | a startup based at the Harvard Life Lab, has announced its plans to develop the world’s first DNA data storage technology. http://ow.ly/xWNA30kQIiF (scroll down)
For years, scientists around the world have exerted time and effort to develop the most efficient medium to store massive amounts of information. Every possible medium is currently being studied for storage purposes, including our own DNA. Now, the Boston-based startup Catalog has announced its plans to produce the first DNA data storage technology that can be used commercially.
Catalog claims that it has found a low-cost method of storing a terabyte of data, about the size of 40 Blu-ray discs, in a DNA pellet. In the company’s announcement to the press, Catalog said that it had secured a $9 million USD funding from several venture capital firms to develop the DNA storage technology.
