ASIS 2010 Video: Analytics and Video Management

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Video analytics is still trying to get over its reputation for overhype. Most vendors are trying to manage expectations, and its pretty much established that analytics perform well when designed to detect trespassing, loitering or attempts at unauthorized entry. Still questionable are applications such as facial recognition and bag-left-behind. Also low light, foliage and background movement can create problems. 

Some vendors are trying a new tack, however, steering away from hype and talking instead about how analytics add value in a networked security environment. When integrated with a video management platform, analytics can used in searched of stored video without pre-set rules. Third-party software and applications, such as Google Earth, can be overlayed on the system. Analytics are even finding applications beyond security. The technology can be used in people counting and other business performance metrics, examples of which surfaced at last month at ASIS.International in Dallas.

During the show, Security Squared visited with several analytics companies to look at the ways analytics, when combined with video management, create a strong value proposition. Our video report showcases interviews with VideoIQ, AgentVI, DVTel/ioimage, ObjectVideo (via Cisco Systems) and France-based start-up Keeneo, along with several demonstrations.
