Recent developments in computer and image processing technology have led to the expansion of several automatic surveillance systems. This paper describes a general, scalable, and distributed framework monitoring model for real-time video-analysis intended for research, prototyping and especially, for business economic purposes. The architecture of the system considers multiple cameras and is based on a server/client model. System modules can be connected in different ways, therefore achieving more flexibility. Three main design criteria’s have been considered 1- low computational cost 2- easy component integration, 3-sensors grouping. The experimental results show the potential use of the proposed system.
