AbstractThis paper introduces a new concept for the area of video surveillance called Critical Evidence Snapshot. We show that automatic extraction and annotation of Critical Evidence Snapshots, which are defined as video snapshots that provide a piece of information that is both useful and new, is the key to improving the utility and efficiency of video surveillance systems. An implementation of an ACE (Annotated Critical Evidence) Surveillance system made from off-the-shelf cameras and a desktop is described. The results obtained on several real-life surveillance assignments confirm our vision for ACE Surveillance as the next generation technology for collecting and managing surveillance data.
