AbstractDespite the population's growing awareness of the need to use surveillance systems for better security in private and business settings, such systems still have not become commonplace. The main reason for this is the amount of time and resources an average user has to dedicate in order to collect video data and then to dig through it searching for evidence when using traditional DVR-based surveillance systems. Here we present ACE-Surveillance - automated surveillance technology based on real-time Annotation of Critical Evidence, that provides an efficient and low-cost solution to the problem. We describe the main features of this technology as related to its two components: ACE-Capture and ACE-Browser. The first component deals with detection and archival of annotated evidence, which is normally performed on a client's desktop computer, The latter deals with browsing and displaying archived video evidence and can be performed either locally on client's computer or remotely via a dedicated server. A new Zoom-on-the-Evidence browsing technique featured by ACE Surveillance is introduced. Live demonstrations of running the technology on several real-life long-term monitoring assignments are shown.
