Qognify, the technology solutions provider for enterprise operations and safety, has joined NVIDIA Metropolis, a programme designed to nurture and bring to market a new generation of applications and solutions that make the world’s most important spaces and operations safer and more efficient with advancements in Artificial Intelligence vision.
As a business, Qognify offers various video management Internet of Things solutions that help customers safeguard people and assets. The rise of IP camera deployments and the increasing number of video streams per installation has made it more essential than ever to add an automated perception layer to the image stream through video analytics in order to better understand how an enterprise’s space is being used. This is where NVIDIA with its Metropolis platform comes into play as the system helps Qognify reliably detect and classify important objects in the video stream.
NVIDIA Metropolis makes it easier and more cost-effective for enterprises, Governments and integration partners to leverage world-class Artificial Intelligence-enabled solutions in order to improve critical operational efficiency and safety problems.
The NVIDIA Metropolis ecosystem contains a large and growing breadth of partners who are investing in the most advanced Artificial Intelligence techniques and the most efficient deployment platforms and also use an enterprise-class approach to their solutions. Partners have the opportunity to gain early access to NVIDIA platform updates and further enhance and accelerate their Artificial Intelligence application development efforts. Further, the programme offers the opportunity for partners to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other Artificial Intelligence-driven organisations.
Chen Porat, vice-president of R&D at Qognify, stated: “The NVIDIA solution does all the heavy lifting for video analytics in combination with our own video analytics platform. We’re planning to roll-out to all of our VMS products in the future. It moves resource-intensive calculations to the GPU and therefore gives back bandwidth to the CPU to manage other tasks needed by our physical security solutions.”
