Cambridge Pixel has recently released its new RadarVision software application. RadarVision is a novel solution to allow radar sensors to be added into security displays.

By converting the radar video data into an RTSP video stream that can simply be displayed by a normal video management system (VMS) or PC media player, RadarVision offers an extremely easy way to add radar information into the security display.

RadarVision makes the radar appear like another camera to the VMS. It even supports the Pelco-D control interface, so the operator can use a joystick to pan and zoom the radar video.

RadarVision can be supplied as a software application or packaged into a box-level solution, as part of the new RIO range.

VSD Extensions

VSD is Cambridge Pixel's integrated radar and camera video security display application, designed to address the needs of a modern security system.

VSD has recently been upgraded with a number of new features and enhancements, some of which are described below.

Track Table: this is a new popup window that displays a list of current tracks. Targets that are causing alarms are clearly marked in this window.

Track and Message Logging: tracks, alarms and messages may now all be logged to a .csv file, for easy post-event analysis.

Gates: gates are boundaries that will raise an alarm if crossed by a track. Directional gates are also supported, allowing tracks to cross without alarming in one direction but not the other.

Proximity Alarms: alarms may be raised if targets get too close to a defined point or to the coastline.

Help Feature: online help is now available, prompting the user on how to use specific controls.

Rulers and CPA/TCPA Graphics: rulers may be drawn to measure the distance and bearing of a target from the radar origin, a reference point, or from another target. The ruler display can also indicate the closest point of approach and time to closest point of approach.

Track filtering: allows the user to hide tracks that are within a configurable distance of land or a reference point.
