Panoramic image stitching
The Logipix Control Center software allows for stitching together the images of Logipix Panorama or Virtual Panorama cameras. The images that are produced by individual sensors do not simply overlap, but are geometrically transformed for an accurate merge. The panoramic image provides an expanded view for the operators, with resolutions reaching hundreds of megapixels. There are no hidden or redundant areas in the stitched images. The Control Center handles a stitched panoramic image as a single image.
Synchronized panoramic image display
The Logipix Panorama cameras create their images in a synchronized fashion, and the Control Center ensures the synchronized display of these images. This feature results in a flawless view, as there are no glitches and observed objects can appear in the footage in their original state.
White balance correction on the stitched image
The Control Center provides efficient white balance correction as well to smoothen the color gradient between the stitched images. This successfully creates natural, quality footage.
The Logipix Panoramic image and the image of a Logipix ONE camera can be assigned together. The individual camera can be installed far away from the Logipix Panorama, and closer to the priority area. This way the desired area can be monitored with a much higher PPM value. The image with higher PPM is synchronized with the panoramic image for an even more convenient surveillance procedure.
GPS-based object labeling
A special Logipix software interface is capable of receiving the GPS coordinates of various objects from external sources. The Logipix Control Center is able to display virtual labels on the camera images that can be easily associated with radar and VCA-recognized objects.
Tagging and marking on the image
Operators can place different tags and marks on the camera images as virtual objects. Tags can be either private or visible for all operators. They contain an arbitrary polygon and a text description. Marked areas can either be predefined or dynamically added.
Logipix ePTZ function
The Logipix Control Center allows operators to define special zoom areas within a panoramic image. If a certain event occurs that triggers the I/O of the Panorama camera, the Control Center automatically zooms in and shows the defined area in high resolution in a special zoom window.
PTZ control on the panoramic image
The PTZ and the Panorama cameras can be measured together by placing guidance points on both images. The Control Center thus provides a unique function whereby Logipix PTZ cameras can be controlled on the panoramic images by selecting the area of interest.
Further PTZ control functions
The Control Center provides versatile PTZ control functions in the Video Monitor, such as mouse controlled joystick emulation, control by simple clicking and drawing around the area of interest. PTZ position bookmarks and GPS positioning also greatly facilitate the monitoring process. Another Control Center function allows the operators to control the PTZ cameras by clicking the required areas on an associated map.
The JPEG2000 standard forms the basis for the Logi-zoom function, which makes it possible for the Logipix NVR to store images in full resolution. Only the required, zoomed picture area is sent in high resolution to the monitoring center, while the rest of the image is sent in a lower resolution.
Touch-screen features utilize the ability of touch-screen monitors to recognize the presence and the gestures of fingers on the screen surface. Single-touch and multi-touch features are available in the Control Center, facilitating several functions in the video monitor such as zooming, changing between monitor profiles or controlling the PTZ.
The dashboard is an instantly customizable monitor profile that can be freely sorted in the Video Monitor interface. It is ideal for creating an optional monitor profile, which saves valuable time when operator actions must be taken quickly.
The Logipix Control Center allows for a video wall operation mode. The layout can be either fixed or modified dynamically by the operators in a synchronized way. The layout change can happen automatically if triggered by system-generated events.
Stadium event management
The Logipix Control Center provides an effective stadium event management function. Different camera setups can be adjusted for during the event and for after the event. This allows significant storage space to be saved.
Operators can watch live and archived video streams on the same interface in the Control Center. A single click is enough to see the archived images from a camera or zoomed area. In this case, both the live and archived image of the same camera or zoomed area is visible simultaneously on the same monitor profile. Time interval selection is available for a deeper analysis of archived images. Thumbnails of the selected interval also help to find the exact time of the desired event.
The health report is an important tool for checking the system. The health report gives a summary of the condition of system components. It continuously monitors the cameras and recorders, and logs their state. It reports potential risks and malfunctions, which helps to sort out problems during maintenance before they generate unexpected down-time in the system.
Fast system configuration
Configuration even of large-scale systems is fast and efficient with the Collective Copy function. A transparent grid of devices and parameters accelerates and facilitates the procedure.
