IP Products

Range with analytics

VCA has launched a new range of high definition IP network video devices which feature its analytics. VCA says that it offers its analytics as an OEM solution, which can be incorporated into other manufacturers’ cameras and software, and is now also offering its own brand of products for installers and systems integrators to generate new revenue streams beyond the traditional security sector, the firm says.

As an OEM solution, VCA analytics has been deployed worldwide in excess of 250,000 video channels as what the makers call an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for applications including people counting, dwell and intrusion detection, vehicle monitoring and tailgating.

Kevin Waterhouse, Executive Vice President, Global Sales for VCA said: “We see our highly affordable range of analytics devices generating significant new business opportunities in two distinct market sectors, ie intelligent perimeter protection and business intelligence. Whilst our OEM business remains robust and continues to grow, we will now be offering our own brand range with pre and post sales support services directly to installers and systems integrators so that they can benefit from our experience and knowledge of these specific market sectors.

“False alarms continue to be a major issue for organisations who need an effective perimeter protection solution to detect intruders. It is now taken for granted that high definition cameras from any reputable manufacturer should be able to capture evidence grade images. However, our on-board video analytics significantly upgrades the capability of our cameras, which should perhaps be better described as ‘Intelligent Video Detectors’. They provide a greater opportunity for installers, remote monitoring centres and end-users, to work together to reduce the time consuming and costly impact of false alarms.”

The video analytics incorporated into all the new VCA camera models also opens up the opportunity to gather data to help such as banks, casinos, hospitals, colleges, retailers and hospitality venues, to achieve a greater understanding of the behaviour of people who work or visit their premises.

This means that in addition to providing security personnel with a tool to detect and combat theft and other crime, the technology is also capable of capturing metadata which can be graphically displayed in customisable reports, to provide marketing, health and safety, human resources and other operational departments with information the company adds.
