Windows Server    AW-SF200 Auto Tracking Server Software
 Auto Tracking Server Software is application software that runs on Windows. By operating this software on a Windows Server PC to which a Panasonic remote camera is connected, tracking of persons shot by the remote camera can be performed simultaneously by multiple remote cameras.
Ver.4 or later: A stable tracking operation can be performed by the face authentication function that detects the face of the set person and the human body detection by deep learning.

Auto Tracking Server Software Ver.5.5.9


  GPU is required to run the system.
  
  
    Web Application: 5.5.0, Tracking Control: 5.5.0, Auto Tracking Lib: 5.5.9

Network
 • The Server PC, Client PC, and remote camera must exist on the same network, and a fixed local IP address must be set for each.
 • This software does not operate in the DHCP environment.

About the Server Configuration
 • This software works even with a single server configuration, but by configuring with multiple servers, it is possible to expand the number of remote cameras that can be controlled at the same time.
 • Set one of the servers that make up this software as the main server for centralized management and the rest as the sub server for expansion.
