Video Analytics for Security and Beyond
Despite the huge amount of video data collected, statistics show that only 10 percent of data is ever used and most loses its value within seconds of being generated. Why use such a limited amount of data?
Many security organizations are focused on delivering the right information in case of an emergency or providing the correct evidence after a criminal act. Yet the fact is, a new video security system can be a large investment. Together with the service, maintenance and management costs associated with it, most video systems are currently considered overhead.
So how can you maximize the value of your video system? Video analytics ensure surveillance images are continuously analyzed in real-time to alert users to things that need attention. This helps organizations make sense of video data and adds an extra layer of protection by providing alerts to potential security risks before or as they occur, such as detecting loitering in a parking lot or a perimeter breach after hours.
With Bosch video analytics other conditions such as a line/ perimeter crossing, illegal parking, loitering, people counting, speeding in areas like parking lots, and color matching alerts can be programmed to provide alerts to enhance security and safety.
Additionally, it can enable organizations to re-purpose the data for new uses for the business—offering valuable insights to other departments within an organization, such as providing the ability to analyze behavior in retail stores to help merchandizers create more effective display placements.
How is this possible? Analytics can provide organizations with the additional information about video data that they need to re-purpose for a business advantage. The cameras can interpret data directly at the source and re-assign it to help organizations make smarter decisions.
By providing business information that goes beyond conventional security applications, new functionality can easily be added to a video security system. In this way, video analytics can help organizations reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve sales. The organization gains greater value from the system and a return on investment that can be measured in tangible business results. Then, the video system is no longer considered overhead. Thinking beyond security opens up video analytics to revolutionize how video data will be used in the future and can take data usage to a whole new level.
