  • Patent number: 11172159
    Abstract: There is provided a monitoring camera system including at least one monitoring camera and a recorder connected to the monitoring camera. The monitoring camera captures an image of an area of a monitoring target, detects a motion in a captured video of the area, associates information relating to the motion with the captured video, and transmits the associated result to the recorder. The recorder associates the captured video of the area captured by the monitoring camera and the information relating to the motion with the monitoring camera, and records the associated result. The recorder reproduces the captured video of the area on a monitor recorded in the way that a reproduction speed of the captured video in a section in which the motion is not detected on the monitor is faster than a reproduction speed of the captured video in a section in which the motion is detected, based on the information relating to the motion.
