About the evolution from analogue CCTV to IP video:
Compared to the decades of predominance of closed, analogue CCTV systems, the last 20 years have been marked by a rapid digital evolution of video surveillance. After an initially hesitant conversion to IP based solutions, physical security has long since moved into the IT departments. Furthermore, the increased deployment of video analytics radically improved the quality of video surveillance.
By now, video analytics also collects business data which vastly exceeds classical security topics and can generate important business value. In-Store-Analytics is becoming a standard application of video surveillance in retail, and also other industries are frequently using IP video for counting, classification and more.
NETAVIS Software has advanced this evolution in Europe and the Middle East. The open video management platform Observer with highest IT compliance has been continuously developed and the product iCAT represents decisive pioneer work in server based video analytics. The next logical step forward in IP-video for NETAVIS Software is sMart Data Warehouse. Remarkable contribution to success can only be derived from video analytics data, if it is provided as user-specifically tailored information to guide decision making and action. NETAVIS Observer, iCAT and sMart constitute the open platform for security and business, which can truly fulfill on the customers’ demand for added value through IP video now.
