1.9 PRODUCT RELEASE NOTES

February 3rd, 2021

The Vintra team is proud to announce the release of FulcrumAI 1.9! For this release, we focused on improving and extending the capabilities and accuracy of our real-time alerting and giving users more information about the results the system is producing.

FulcrumAI Realtime version 1.9 is available to all customers with an active subscription. If you have any questions on the new features, please refer to the material in the FulcrumAI Help Center, reach out to support@vintra.io, or contact us at 408-610-8959 to easily upgrade your system.

Improved Situational Awareness

Updated

  • We redesigned our rule engine to provide more context when an alert is produced so GSOC operators have more situational awareness about an event. Users can now see more data about what triggered an alert, system confidence levels, and be informed when the rule condition is not true anymore.

Confidence Levels

New

  • Vintra’s analytics work out of the box in most applications, without the need for cumbersome learning or training processes. Users who desire more granular control can easily tweak individual rules and object classes directly in the system, without the need for an admin console or hidden menu.

1.8 PRODUCT RELEASE NOTES

New Face Classifiers

New / Updated

  • Our 1.8 product release includes enhancements to our face search capabilities to help to detect a person’s face given occlusions, personal accessories and other defining human characteristics. The new classifiers include a face covering detector, glasses, and gender (male/female). These new classifiers are most representative of a person’s face and will help to accurately classify a face versus a non-face image and improve overall accuracy.

Multi-Class Targets and Target Lists

New

  • Users can now create ‘vehicle’ and ‘body’ targets from detections (previously could only use a ‘face’ detection to create a new target).
  • Create a new target from a face, body or vehicle and include them in a Target List. Combine as many targets as you want and search for them in post-event investigations or in real-time across multiple camera streams.

Target Tracker

New

  • Target Tracker searches are now capable to re-identify a person or vehicle target across a month’s worth of data from a large number of cameras (on-premises version).

Updated

  • Upgraded database to power our Target Tracker re-identification based searches, resulting in a 1- to 2-order of magnitude improvement on most searches (on-premises version). 
  • Improvements to tracking via new/better models for generating target signatures.
System Installation & Operation

Updated / Fixed

  • Rebuilt system installer to improve initial installations and upgrades, both online and offline (on-premises version).
Region-of-Interest

Updated / Fixed

  • Updated the API Region-of-Interest filter so users can retrieve just the portion of an object’s path that falls within a specific region.
Monthly Subscription Model

New

  • Starting with this version, Vintra has a new purchase option – a monthly subscription bundle that includes hardware. No large up front purchase is required to get going, pricing is set per camera per month for software, hardware and support.

Target Tracker was developed as a direct result of members of the Vintra customer community wanting to increase situational awareness, and the need to find people of interest. With Target Tracker, you can locate a Target across multiple scenes and camera locations without using data from the face as a primary input.

Similar to Person Target Tracker, this feature empowers users with the ability to search for and locate a specific vehicle across multiple scenes and cameras without the use of data from the vehicle’s license plate.

  • Rules engine 2.0 (Real Time only) allows for custom scheduling, alerting on specific object types & attributes (including the new object types and events), and setting priority for alerts from each rule
  • Improved alerting page (Real Time only) with more / better ways to sort & filter
  • Improved Face Recognition updates to the face recognition module include increased accuracy on non-caucasian ethnicities and women. Vintra built its own heterogenous training data set from more than 50 countries around the world, resulting in one of the lowest published bias rates on the popular “Racial Faces in the Wild” validation dataset.
  • We have renamed “SUBJECTS” to “TARGETS” throughout the product — to reflect the fact that in the very near future it will be possible to search for specific non-human objects (stay tuned!).
