Motion Detection Filter SDK Libraries

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.

Motion Detection Filter Libraries

The LEAD Video Motion Detection filter compares the current frame with the previous frame. Every time there is a difference between frames, the filter fires a callback with coordinates of where motion is detected. The filter exposes its functionality through both user and programming interfaces.

  • Motion Detection callback fires based on many configuration options, including
    • Sensitivity
    • Object size
    • Detection intervals
    • Region of interest
  • Perfect for surveillance and UAV applications, with the ability to:
    • Draw rectangles or annotations around the moving objects
    • Start and stop capture so only clips with movement are recorded
    • Determine X-Y offset and feed to remote control cameras to automatically track and keep camera focused on moving object
  • Apply during video playback, conversion, or capture
    • Real-time video processing
    • Post-processing video editing
  • Adjust parameters on the fly for instantaneous results
  • Developers control the LEAD Motion Detection Filter with included .NET (C# & VB) and C DLL libraries for 32 and 64-bit development
