Video Intelligence and Multi-Sensor Fusion

SALSA VIP is an advanced Multi-Sensor Fusion platform that integrates leading video intelligence and analytics with video management software for Public Safety, Law Enforcement, and Defense applications. SALSA VIP correlates, fuses, and aggregates data from multiple sources to detect, characterize, alert, and track vehicles of interest across hundreds of streaming traffic cameras and archived data.

The SALSA Video Knowledge Graph TM machine learning algorithm correlates sensor observations to physical objects across space and time. A confidence for the fused data is computed based on similarity of the sensed features (i.e., attributes), the provenance, and pedigree of the observations. Man-machine teaming continually improves the accuracy of the results.

Watch What Matters

Using Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Computer Vision, SALSA VIP extracts operational insights from video to generate highly accurate situational awareness. Actively search or create alert profiles for vehicles of interest based on type, make, model, color, location, time, and direction of travel, yielding high confidence results within seconds. 

Vehicle Search

Search for vehicles based on a singular attribute or a combination of attributes (type, color, make, model, location, time, direction of travel).

  • Search archived and live video feeds simultaneously
  • Supports large number of cameras 
  • Highly accurate results (above 80% accuracy)


Receive real-time alerts based on vehicle descriptions and behaviors, such as:

  • Vehicle approaching at an unusual time
  • Vehicle arriving/departing a location of interest
  • Vehicle approaching an unauthorized area
  • Unusual traffic volume in an area for the time or day
  • Vehicle parked at an unusual location

Pattern of Movement Analysis

SALSA VIP provides :

  • Vehicle’s last known locations, top destinations, and patterns of travel
  • Vehicle arrival and/or departure times
  • Total number of vehicles by day-of-the-week, hour-of-the-day, month-of-the-year

Semandex Video Knowledge Graph™

The VKG enriches observations derived from multiple sources to amplify the context of video sensor observations and enable high performance entity resolution and tracking.

  • Links previous exploitation and source video with other source reporting
  • Enables a higher level of analysis for future activity anticipation

Rapid Deployment

SALSA VIP can be deployed on-premises hardware and is capable of integrating into a cloud architecture or operating as a stand-alone “Roll on/Roll off” capability. SALSA VIP containerized software package is easy to set up and manage. SALSA VIP supports immediate integration with IP-based network cameras and sensors, producing data in standardized and interoperable formats. Software APIs allow for configuration to ingest a variety of data feeds and sensor types.

Effective Scalability

Multiple software containers can be installed on any number of servers, from portable transit cases, for local coverage and data centers for regional coverage, to enterprise deployments federated across different regions, for global coverage. From back-packable high-performance computing resources used in tactical operations to on-premise high-performance computing clusters.

Edge Processing Ready

The Edge Processing Units (EPUs) provide fully operational video analytics in environments where there is limited power and bandwidth to transmit HD video.  Each EPU is capable of computing vehicle signatures at a bit rate of approximately 25 Kbps per detected vehicle and offers ultra-low power high-density inference processing of approximately 2 Watts.

SALSA VIP EPUs turn a conventional camera into a “smart camera” that can be exploited as close to the sensing location as possible, while transmitting back only the minimal required information for a back-end processor to index, analyze, and cross-correlate, providing the information needed for analyst to act. The EPU provides the vehicle classification, color detection and vehicle/track characterization in real-time to a remote distributed search sub-system.
