NETAVIS, a manufacturer of a Linux-based video management software, is now starting a partnership with Milestone Systems, a world leading provider of open platform IP video management software (VMS). Therefore, NETAVIS will be storing and displaying data from the Milestone xProtect software in its own data warehouse.
Video management system beyond classic security technology
Today an IP video system can generate and store far more than just video data. Metadata, object data and much more is generated with modern IP video management systems and the appropriate video analytics in the background. The challenge nowadays is more on the visualization of this data. Users want simple and flexible views to easily access their current systems. This is where business intelligence is applied. Business Intelligence Solutions enable any data to be prepared and presented for easy decision making. As a result, video data can be used increasingly outside of typical security applications such as for retail marketing, logistics, industrial processes, and many more.
Data visualization in the NETAVIS sMart Data Warehouse
Based on the Milestone MIP SDK, NETAVIS has developed an integration for their sMart Data Warehouse. This makes automatied visualization of the data from the Milestone database possible. This visualization is provided through dashboards or predefined reports in predefined time periods. The sMart Data Warehouse can store and display all relevant data of the Milestone xProtect family. Examples include peoplecount or heatmaps, which can also be generated for large areas at the same time.
Initial solutions and integrations will be presented together by both companies at Security Essen, between 25.09 - 28.09 at the Milestone stand, located in Hall 5 with the number 5F10.
