Observant Innovations is a British company that designs and manufactures innovative solutions for inspection, monitoring, and surveillance challenges.
At the heart of its technology is the Aperture imaging workbench, a powerful real-time capability to capture, manipulate, process and then store, very high quality imagery for professionals in many different use cases, including emergency services, military, inspection and monitoring, safety and security.
Our camera and software solutions developed using Aperture capture and present a history of a scene for immediate 'real-time' or subsequent contextual understanding and analysis.
These provide mega pixel imaging which allows for software enabled digital virtual 2D image Pan, Tilt and Zoom (vPTZ).
In 360° panoramic solutions this allows for 3D vPTZ functionality to pan, tilt and zoom into one or more 3D view portions of the imaging.
We exhibited at Security & Policing 2019 in
Farnborough UK, from the 5th - 7th March
We were on stand A16...
& on the CBRN UK stand B1...
& in the CBRN Immersive Feature.
In the CBRN Immersive Feature many people followed the evidence with JSaRC, the National CBRN Centre and the National Crime Agency as they responded to a suspected hazardous substance incident.
On our stands we showcased:

Imaging Management System for remote real-time supervision
The Observant Monitor System
The Monitor system has been specifically developed for the supervision of working and automation environments by providing high quality imaging from within the workspace.
Multiple independently controllable views allow for excellent contextual understanding by providing both overview and zoomed-in detail.
All these views are digitally extracted in real time from a single image sourced from a very high quality, high resolution machine vision camera.
Visibility of the work processes is often restricted by the viewing angle, poor visibility and lighting, reflection and glare. It can be challenging for operators to establish and retain an overview of processes even when near the workspace. Remotely it’s even harder.
MONITOR ensures that operators can now view real time imaging transmitted live from within a workspace to a local screen, or their desktop, laptop or mobile device, facilitating supervisory overview of live processes, and post-process review.

360 Degree Panoramic Cameras
Observant designs and makes single image 360° Panoramic Cameras. The cameras enable high-resolution visual documentation of everything occurring in their vicinity, ensuring that nothing is missed.
SENTRY is designed to fit seamlessly into standard CCTV infrastructure.
PATROL is a vehicle mounted camera: “Body Worn Video” for a vehicle.
All too frequently, even in an environment cluttered with CCTV and consumer video camera devices, vital evidence is missed.
Often cameras are pointing in the wrong direction and what video is available fails to reflect the true, or the complete nature of the situation..
Observant’s cameras have a “lighthouse” Field of View. The vital contextual environment is fully captured to ensure a thorough situational understanding.
The 360°PATROL camera is designed as part of an integrated in-vehicle PC based surveillance system.
The 360°SENTRY camera can be used as a “nest” of up to 8 virtual vPTZ HD cameras through an ONVIF compatible Video Management System, or through Observant’s own monitoring and reviewing software.
