What analytics, you ask? How about Crowd Detection. Loitering Detection. Running Detection. Missing Object Detection. People Counting. Intrusion Detection. These are just a few of the new analytics features included in the Vivotek In-Camera Analytics Plugin included in Nx Witness v4.2.
In-Camera Analytics plugins allow Nx Witness to bring in objects that are detected with associated metadata tags and store that metadata next to the associated video in Nx Witness. The plugins included in Nx Witness v4.2 make it easy for customers to choose cameras from leading IP camera manufacturers, but keep a consistent user experience in the Nx Witness interface.
In-Camera Analytics Plugins also allow users to capture and view object metadata/events and use them to create automations in the Nx Witness Rules Engine. In-Camera Analytics Plugins are just one more way in which Network Optix continues to standardize the way that Nx Witness interacts with AI-powered in-camera video analytics.
And as IP camera manufacturers continue to innovate and add video analytics and AI-enabled computer vision applications to their hardware Nx will continue to expand the capabilities of Nx Witness to utilize the metadata generated to make it possible to capture and use this valuable, actionable video generated business intelligence.
So what are the new hardware plugins and what features do they support?
