Application for the Automated Surveillance of Exhibition Spaces

SEDOR® is a high-performance and self-learning video analysis system which provides outstanding analytical results due to state-of-the-art image analysis algorithms and the constant adjustment of the system parameters to the current surrounding conditions (auto-adaptation). If used together with the different applications, it can serve a variety of surveillance and counting purposes.

SEDOR® Art is an application for the DVS Analysis Server software designed for the surveillance of artwork in exhibition spaces. SEDOR® Art is able to protect exhibited works of art from theft and damage. The application reports illegal approaches, changes in position, the theft of a piece of art, or unattended pieces of luggage in the exhibition spaces.
