LEADTOOLS provides developers with the LEAD Motion Detection DirectShow Filter for use in their .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ applications. This filter can be used to compare the current frame with previous frames to perform various operations such as drawing annotations on the movement, starting and stopping capture, and integrating with remote controls to track objects as they move. Surveillance and UAV ground station applications benefit from motion detection since it allows them to run more efficiently and gather more accurate data.

Overview of LEAD Motion Detection Filter

  • DirectShow filter for detecting motion in videos
  • Motion Detection callback fires when the current frame is different from the previous frame with many configuration options, including
    • Sensitivity
    • Object size

    • Region of interest
  • Perfect for surveillance and UAV applications, such as
    • Draw rectangles or annotations around the moving objects
    • Start and stop capture so only clips with movement are recorded
