Anyone using video analytics successfully especially for human detection? A few years ago there was a lot of hype and it seemed to be pie in the sky but I think it has since evolved into a decent tool although expensive. I often need a wide field of coverage where the relevant target moves through the frame in the distance beyond effective analytics range. I have had good results with Flir on board analytics picking up human targets at 600m with a 19mm lens. The unit is solidly mounted and the settings are biased toward night time detection when the heat contrast is greater than daytime which generates false alarms. Admittedly a 35mm lens would be better but we would then miss the broad area surveillance that is needed restricted by budget.
