  • Patent number: 11281914
    Abstract: A vehicle monitoring system includes at least one camera, and a server that is communicably connected to the camera and a client terminal. The camera captures a license plate and an occupant's face of a vehicle entering an angle of view of the camera, and transmits a captured video to the server. The server acquires an analysis result of the license plate, analysis results of a type and a color of the vehicle, an analysis result of the occupant's face, and an analysis result of the number of occupants based on the captured video, and accumulates the acquired analysis results as analysis results of the captured video, and sends the analysis result to the client terminal in correlation with a snapshot of the captured video.

  • Publication number: 20210374429
    Abstract: A vehicle monitoring system includes at least one camera, and a server that is communicably connected to a client terminal. The camera performs capturing a vehicle while switching a first capturing condition including an image parameter for capturing a number of the vehicle entering an angle of view of the camera and a second capturing condition including an image parameter for capturing an occupant's face of the vehicle, and transmits a first captured video under the first capturing condition and a second captured video under the second capturing condition to the server. The server arranges reproduction screens for the first captured video and the second captured video that are reproduceable in the client terminal and displays the reproduction screens on the client terminal based on the first captured video and the second captured video.

  • Patent number: 7389524
    Abstract: An image server and an image communication system capable of displaying images of plural image servers differing in IP address on a browser window by using a versatile browser, and a methods for controlling them. Plural image servers communicate with a client computer displaying image information presented from image servers through a network. Of the plural image servers, the controller of a certain image server receives a request from the client computer, and displays the image data of the image server and image data of other plural image servers simultaneously on the browser window of the client computer. Accordingly, the controller of the designated image server creates display information, and supplies the information to the client computer.

  • Publication number: 20080036877
    Abstract: The network camera of the present invention is connected to a terminal apparatus, and includes a camera and a memory. The camera photographs an image and is movable within a predetermined photographing range. The memory stores predetermined positional information indicating a position of the predetermined object. It is prohibited to display the image of the predetermined object on the terminal apparatus. The network camera has a controller that controls the camera to move within the photographable range to acquire a series of images from the camera at predetermined time periods. The controller, when acquiring the image including the predetermined object based on the predetermined positional information, performs a masking process operation with respect to a predetermined image area that includes both the image of the predetermined object acquired at a present time period and the image of the predetermined object acquired at one time period previous to the present time period.
