IC Realtime announces new Ella feature


A couple of months back, I got the chance to speak to Matt Sailor, CEO of IC Realtime, about the company’s new natural language video search platform Ella. Yesterday, the company announced its first update: including a time-lapse compiler and creation tool.

“With this new update, users can create a time-lapse video from a range of time or by a specific query to produce more detailed and relevant results. The same natural language processing included within Ella is leveraged to create time-lapse videos that can be specific to a certain object, color, or vehicle make and model,” the announcement read.

“Never before have customers had the ability to request and generate time-lapse videos within seconds and customize those time-lapse videos to narrow down the results down to very specific objects, colors, vehicles, or user-created zones,” Sailor said in a prepared statement.

Sailor continued, “One area where we see great opportunity is within the construction market for customers interested in monitoring construction sites to ensure personnel safety but also want to create easy-to-view time-lapse videos that showcase job-site progress or start-to-finish projects. This new feature can also be used by new or existing customers who need to monitor sensitive or restricted access areas and produce time-lapse videos across a day, week, month, or any duration of time.”

The new tool is available now for Ella users and can be used system-wide across all Ella subscribed cameras.
