Imaging 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.

The Observant Aperture Imaging Workbench
MONITOR’s robust imaging platform, the Observant APERTURE Imaging workbench, allows complete flexibility of viewing, with the ability to control every aspect of the MONITOR camera image acquisition process.
Real-time understanding is enhanced by using image processing which is independent of camera imaging acquisition and archival.
Customised analytics can be added to enable alerts both for expected outcomes, and errors. There’s also the ability to add augmented reality (AR) overlays, for example to compare visible progress against planned results.

The system continually records physical processes, capturing and archiving images which allow both live and retrospective vPZ views. Once started, the system requires no interaction as all operating processes are fully automated. Time tagged recorded data is securely stored on the system’s own data storage PC.
The system may be configured to meet unique operational requirements, for example, to store all recordings in a single archive, create a new archive for each new day of operation, or even to create a new archive each time a recording application is run.
With versatile screen layouts, powerful timeline searching and playback controls, the REVIEW software (see image below) simplifies post process analysis, providing that all-important information and evidence as to what happened and why.
