DIVIS TIP OF THE MONTH
CargoVIS & ParcelVIS for video-based shipment-research
Create, view and edit markers
Bordesholm, October 7, 2019
In the live view of CargoVIS, our video management software for transshipment warehouses, and ParcelVIS for the image-based parcel research in the depot, it is possible to set markers to quickly find specific sequences in a video clip. You can think of a marker as a bookmark in the video.
Example from practice:
A security guard discovers something suspicious in the video during his shift. He sets a corresponding marker in the sequence so that the respective scene can quickly be found again later via the search and can then be examined thoroughly.
How it works
In the live view of CargoVIS or ParcelVIS, click the button located in the upper left corner of the video image. This opens a window with the marker dialogue displaying information about the selected sequence. Here you can manually enter additional information related to the incident.
