iQ-Hawk is a unique application which performs multiple detections and recognitions of people and vehicles, simultaneously on a single camera. As events are detected the system automatically zooms in on the event to capture the face (for humans) or license plate (for vehicles).

Traditionally PTZ cameras were used to enable operators to zoom in on an event to see the culprit. Criminals who understood how the technology worked were able to defeat the system by sending in a decoy. When the PTZ camera zoomed in on the decoy the criminals could perpetuate their crime outside of the limited view of the zoomed camera. iQ-Hawk cannot be defeated in this way as it continues to detect events in the entire field of vision even while it performs multiple digital zooms to identify the culprits involved in different events.
