The growth of electronic media, process automation, and especially the intensified interest in national and personal security in the past few years, have all contributed to the growing need for the automatic detection of features and activities in still photos and video streams, on a massive scale, in real-time, and without the need for the human eye. To date, all available automated processing technologies have fallen short, and cannot provide a solution that is both technically viable and cost-effective.

This white paper details the basic concepts behind a unique, patent-pending technology called IPoIP (Image Processing over IP) networks. As the name implies, IPoIP Technology provides a solution for automatically extracting useful data from a large number of simultaneous image (video or still) inputs connected to an IP network; but, unlike other methods, it does so at reduced costs without compromising reliability.
