NETAVIS Observer Summit 2015
Video analytics is a trend in IP Video but for many end customers, the question is still: What are the benefits? We designed this year’s Observer Summit to explore this question together with our top partners in Europe and the Middle East. It was centred on three key themes:
Business Value delivered by IP Video
Video Analytics in Verticals
Partner Empowerment for Business
In line with this year’s NETAVIS Observer Summit topic: “Business Value in Verticals”, NETAVIS and the event’s technology partners presented tangible solution scenarios for the verticals retail, traffic & transport, and public surveillance.
Within the vertical Retail NETAVIS showed how valuable data about customers and their behavior in the shop is collected by means of video analytics – as added value to conventional loss prevention. But even more important, participants learned how this information can be presented and processed in a way that allows for vital conversion rate management and increased sales of the shops. Therefore, the NETAVIS Retail Dashboard and Digital Signage applications were shown and specific reference projects were discussed.
In the vertical Traffic & Transport, NETAVIS showed the integrated number plate recognition for European and Arabic plates that is running directly on the camera server from NETAVIS Observer 4.6 onwards. The simple and intelligent NPR list management optimizes processes at entrances and gates and more. The reliable solution for highways and motorways – iCAT Traffic - monitors traffic flow and issues alarms in case of wrong-way drivers. Reference projects in the fields of logistics and transport were available as well.
Related to Public Surveillance and critical infrastructure NETAVIS focused on large and complex installations, with the most important topics being IT compliance and integration. The user interface of NETAVIS Caberra process automation as well as Active Directory Support, event and alarms via SNMP and the integration of various physical security applications illustrated the technological know-how of NETAVIS in this vertical. Specific use cases of the NETAVIS Observer 4.6 highlights I/O Device Administration and Rule Administration and reference projects were presented as well.
