Smart Cameras & Smart Encoders

Smart Cameras & Smart Encoders for SmartTraffic applications

Product overview

Smart Cameras and Smart Encoders are devices that have available resources to host Citilog’s range of SmartTraffic applications.

The Citilog SmartCam solution combines an AXIS IP Camera (with support from AXIS Camera Application Platform) and a Citilog SmartTraffic Video Detection application to supply a compact, turnkey and cost-effective solution for Automatic Incident Detection.

Video detection algorithms run directly inside edge equipment (network cameras or encoders).


With the new Edge architecture, these solutions provide real benefits:
  • Savings on installation costs and maintenance (less hardware, less cabling, less racks...)
  • Less equipment & hardware
  • Less energy consumption
  • Increase in system reliability
  • Scalability
  • Optimization of the network bandwidth requirements (Video on demand and on alarm only)
  • Wireless communication and/or solar panel compatible

Alarm management & Integration into Video Management System

The SmartCam is designed to provide alarms, data and status to the Citilog MediaManager alarm and video management system. Hosted centrally on a server, this system was specifically designed to manage incident on roadways. In parallel to the Citilog Operator interface (MediaManager) a Citilog server which host the incident database, configuration and maintenance interface will also provide alarms and data to a third party VMS using Citilog's standard SDK. All data on the Citilog server are available on the SDK.

Choosing the right Smart Camera

The Citilog SmartTraffic Video Detection applications can run on AXIS IP Camera equipped with a processor (ARTPEC) of generation 4 and above. Check each SmartCam application for compatible cameras. The AXIS cameras able to host the application can be chosen from the Axis website and are summarized in the Technical Specifications below.
