Following on from successful beta trials involving key partners, Digital Barriers has announced the launch of its Cloud Video Platform (CVP). From launch, CVP provides automatic video alert verification, camera tampering alerts and face detection, all from a cloud service. In turn, this enables organisations of all sizes across both the commercial and public sectors to analyse their video more effectively and efficiently.
The volume of video being captured and stored by organisations is on the increase each and every year. Typically, it’s locked away within a corporate data repository. In truth, this video is rarely viewed or shared due to the cost and complexity of analysing it or viewing it at the point of need.
Using advanced video analytics, CVP can help organisations identify what’s important and compress live and recorded video such that it may be shared more easily, subsequently enhancing operational effectiveness.
CVP can also help Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) reduce their number of false alarms through advanced analytics and enhancement tools over direct web services. Managers and operators are able to use CVP to quickly verify potential threats without significant installation or deployment costs, whereas in the past deploying such tools has been both time-consuming and expensive, leading to prolonged procurements and delayed implementations.
CVP has been designed to be easy to integrate. It’s highly efficient and is extremely cost-effective. The solution is designed to deliver genuine benefits to organisations, helping to make sense of the often limitless volumes of video being captured and stored. Importantly, CVP is able to operate on public, private and secure Government clouds.
Digital Barriers will launch new video analytic algorithms to CVP over the coming months, including its full facial recognition and Government-accredited intrusion detection analytics (designated SafeZone). It will also host third party analytics such as license plate recognition and vehicle traffic analytics.
Later this year, Digital Barriers’ video technology, TVI, will also be available as a cloud service to provide reliable, live, real-time video streaming over cellular networks (including 4G) from existing video stores.
Zak Doffman, CEO at Digital Barriers, commented: “The growth in IP network video and edge analytics has already created a generational technology shift in this market. Now, the evolution to cloud services will do the same again. Our video streaming and analytics technologies are uniquely capable over wireless networks. This is why they’ve been adopted by some of the world’s leading defence and security organisations and have sold into more than 30 countries. This gives us a very compelling advantage over other cloud video offerings that will inevitably come to market.”
Doffman concluded: “With the launch of the Cloud Video Platform we can give connected cameras anywhere in the world almost instant access to our suite of advanced video tools with no deployment costs or delays. This solution will continue to develop as we add cutting-edge analytics from not only Digital Barriers but also third parties.”
