TAKE IN LARGE VOLUMES OF DATA & STANDARDISE IT.

We live in a world where formats of data (video, audio, imagery etc.) are changing rapidly, and often converting these to something you can easily work with can be time-consuming and frustrating.

 

SCi-Describe takes in large volumes of contrasting information and puts it into a format that SCi-Discover, SCi-X and other data exploitation tools can understand.  This could range from a large quantity of security footage held in a vendor specific format, or two separate files of images and metadata that need to be combined. Data in SCi-Discover is standardised, regardless of the format that it was originally supplied in.

 

SCi-Describe also allows you to monitor and record live streams of information into SCi-Discover for further analysis.

Automatic Extraction of Metadata from Live or Archive Video

SCi-Describe captures the footage using an innovative 'screen scraping' method which extracts and interprets the information from either live or archived video and embeds it into a STANAG 4609 compliant format.

Traditional metadata extraction

SCi-Describe can extract information from both Line 21 ESD closed caption data and custom metadata formats. Convertor plugins are also supported

STANAG 4609 Compliant

SCi-Describe outputs STANAG 4609 compliant H.264 video and KLV metadata in MPEG Transport Streams to allow direct interoperability with Information Management Systems, Video Exploitation Systems and Situational Awareness Systems.

Support for Multiple Video Source Types

SCi-Describe includes a number of hardware module options to allow capture from High Definition and Standard Definition video sources including DVI, SDI, HDMI, PAL and NTSC. 

H.264 Video Encoding Performance

H.264 encoders can be configured for baseline, main and high profile modes. GOP and bit rate control can be configured for each video output stream to tailor the output for network and client dissemination.

Streaming over IP Networks

SCi-Describe supports unicast or multicast of STANAG 4609 streams over UDP for managed networks, and HLS transport for dissemination across networks to overcome packet drop and jitter.
