GoodVision Video Insights offers two basic options for video processing to choose from, depending on the video source and level of detail required. You can use any of your own favorite cameras regardless of the manufacturer. Please note in order to analyze extracted data properly, your cameras must have the static viewpoint.
Never before were such options bundled in a single product!
1. Fixed camera
A processing option designed for videos from fixed cameras on roads, junctions, pathways etc. placed up to 50m high above the ground. Videos from fixed cameras are processed normally in just a couple of hours from the upload. Data for all object classes are extracted from the video including pedestrians and OGV1, OGV2 recognition. For detailed specification and guidelines for fixed cameras please go to Fixed Camera Processing Guidelines.
If you are connecting your camera live stream to GoodVision instead of uploading video recordings, read about the Video Stream Processing Guidelines.
GoodVision Video Insights enables processing of time-compressed videos too. If your footage is recorded with time-lapse function (e.g. from cameras like Brinno), please make sure you provide the system with correct video metadata (especially the real video duration) - for detailed specification see the requirements for time-lapse videos.

2. Drone Camera
A processing option designed for:
- UHD drone cameras surveying from 50 to 250 meters above the ground
- UHD fixed or temporary cameras in big heights with a steep view
Results from drone camera processing will be available to you on the next business day after video upload. In an ideal case the trajectories from a recording with a stable drone view are compact through the whole scene. Due to high heights of the footage, pedestrians are not reported for drone cameras.

For drone videos which are not completely stable throughout the recording (e.g. slightly moved, rotated or jittering), we have developed a stabilization procedure that helps to hold the scene still so that the trajectories remain as compact as possible. However, it can easily happen that some parts of the video were not in focus all the time during the footage, as the drone would turn a bit or change its position.
For such cases, we implemented a mask overlaying the camera screenshot in the Video Insights application which lets you know where these zones occurred. It is not recommended to place filters to measure traffic volumes and travel times on the grey zones (it’s possible but the outputs cannot be guaranteed). The mask is a guidance where you should be careful with the results and rather concentrate on the bright parts with complete data for your analysis.
