ASPECTS RELATING THE MEANS OF VIDEO RECORDING IN LIVESTOCK RESEARCH
E. Köntés, I.M. Pop
Using video recording surveillance systems in livestock research has a number of advantages: it confers privacy to animals which are undisturbed by human presence, it is a factor reducing the human effort especially in 24-hour surveillance, greatly reduces errors in further analysis and increases data verifiability. This work is a synthetic analysis of three video surveillance systems, technical data analysis and results obtained from testing them for 30 days in different conditions at three livestock holdings. Each system has advantages and disadvantages, such as data storage capacity, recorded data transfer method and data transferability from the system to the data processing unit. A very important aspect is the system sensitivity of sequenced data analysis under natural, artificial and infrared light. Sequence analysis of the data is an intelligent (clever) way of these systems by which we are able to adjust specific action-sensitive areas for filtering information insignificant to the research. Video surveillance system is an advantage in livestock research, the right choice and proper function adjustment helps further data processing. Information resulting from the synthesis of the three systems and data obtained from use provides practical information for applying these systems in research.
