BriefCam's "Transforming Video into Actionable Intelligence" allows law enforcement and retailers to secretly identify people by their gender, body size, color, direction, speed and more.
BriefCam's Video Synopsis version V allows police and retail stores to use surveillance cameras to identify individuals and cars in real-time.
"BriefCam is the industry’s leading provider of Video Synopsis® solutions for rapid video review and search, real-time alerting and quantitative video insights. By transforming raw video into actionable intelligence."
What is really disturbing about the video, is no one knows where it is being used and by whom. BriefCam's limited disclosures, claim it is being used by top law enforcement agencies and governments but that's it.
BriefCam admits that the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Disney, the Javits Convention Center and Smart City initiatives in Boston and Beverly Hills are using Video Synopsis.
Watchlisting or "real-time alerting" goes hand-in-hand with biometric surveillance cameras.
NEC's NeoFace Watch software is being showcased at the International Security Expo 2018. NEC admits facial recognition is integral to smart cities.
"NEC and NPS will showcase a vast range of safety solutions to overcome challenges facing cities; including facial recognition system, automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS), CONNECT police platform, and video analytics solution. The solutions will form part of Safer Cities that NEC and NPS aim to build, to contribute to realize a safe and secure society for all citizens."
BriefCam, like NEC is so good at spying on everyone that even Homeland Security is impressed.
Aaron Miller, Director of the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness for the City of New Orleans said, "with cameras covering the city and BriefCam’s unique ability to rapidly pin-point objects of interest, incidents can be solved more quickly, and trends in pedestrian, crowd or traffic behavior can be uncovered in a matter of minutes."
If you are you still wondering why DHS is so excited, I give you BriefCam spying police smartphones.
At approximately 6:00 into the video Hartford Police Sergeant John Michael O'Hare reveals that police can access surveillance cameras in real-time using their smartphones.
BriefCam's entire business model appears to be focused on one thing, surveillance. Perhaps nothing says that better than suggesting stores use surveillance cameras, Video Synopsis and Data Fusion to identify people walking by storefronts.
"How many people pass the Duty-Free storefront? Of those, how many people enter the store? When correlated with the store’s revenue data, this information could help operations managers understand how many of those store entries turned into actual sales."
Corporations are so excited by BriefCam's ability to spy on the public, that the Massachusetts General Hospital used it toidentify how many people actually visited their museum on any given day. (To learn more click here.)
BriefCam euphemistically calls this "business intelligence" or as I call it corporate spying on Americans.
Everyone's privacy is at stake when police and corporations use surveillance cameras to identify people walking on public streets and travelling in their cars.
