ilex performs advanced video surveillance. It provides all the functions of video surveillance including analytics, recording, viewing and rapid historical search. Its key features also include full Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the use of relational databases.


The first part of Aralia’s complete three-part software suite, ilex provides all the functions of video surveillance, including analytics, recording, viewing and rapid historical search. It is an advanced, intelligent and scalable video surveillance system that can integrate with existing CCTV infrastructures, as well as the latest digital systems.

ilex sends video data to a distributed relational database, incorporating real-time cataloguing within video picture, automatic reporting of alarms and rapid SQL-based querying of the entire stored video data. All configuration and video data, including


analytic metadata, are stored in the relational databases. Our innovative approach permits ilex to utilise the querying and data processing capabilities of a large scale SQL database. Pioneered by Aralia, this approach gives ilex a clear advantage over competing systems.

Configure Alarms for Automatic Alerts

With its configurable rules, ilex can be easily customised to fit any user’s needs. Create alarms to automatically detect objects that pose a security threat based on your individual security risks:
  • First, define regions of interest (ROIs) on a camera’s Field of View (FOV) to set up detection areas for objects.
  • Second, configure alarm rules to detect specific objects based on characteristics such as object type, colour, size, speed and direction.

When an alarm is detected by objects that meet the pre-set configurations, ilex will alert the operator by sending out an automated alarm.

Key Features of Advanced Video Surveillance

  • Records into a distributed relational database at evidential quality.
  • Real-time cataloguing of picture content
  • Automatic reporting of alarms
  • Video data reduction uses ‘intelligent’ data thinning
  • Rapid SQL-based querying of the entire stored video data
  • Object analysis on PTZ cameras
  • Ability to use multiple compression technologies
  • Runs on any type of platform including blade servers with a SAN or NAS


  Take Immediate Action: Alarm Alerts and Event Playback

Take action as soon as a security issue arises:
  • Quickly and easily replay the footage from an alarm incident or from any chosen period within a camera’s recorded data.
  • Instantly view a snapshot image of the alarm event highlighting the object that triggered it.
  • Save and print snapshot images from the alarm event for future reference.
  • Filter and reorder alarm incidents according to categories for quick referencing.
  • Search through video footage visually using the Timeline feature.

Full Geographic Information System (GIS) Interface

Our latest version of ilex includes a full Geographic Information System Interface. GIS Network Maps, Location Maps and a GIS Toolbar allow the end-user to quickly visualize threats and respond accordingly. Drag Field of View (FOV) cones to move cameras and view alarms as icons on the map.
