Video analytics module
Flussonic Watcher supports video analytics functions including face recognition and license plate recognition (LPR). The video analytics module is not installed when you install Watcher, so you should install it manually only on the server(s) where the recognition will run. You will find installation guide on the next pages.
The module includes two types of the video analytics for Flussonic Watcher:
- Video analytics on GPU requires a powerful video card.
- Video analytics on CPU can work practically on any CPU.
The video analytics module can work both in Cluster and Single mode of Flussonic Watcher installation. In a Cluster installation, the recognition module works on a streamer where Flussonic Media Server must be installed first. If you use a Single server, install Flussonic Media Server and Watcher before you install the recognition system. See Watcher installation ways for details on the two installation modes.
Connect camera(s) to detect faces or license plates to the streamer.
