March Networks Analytics Camera

Video analytics has been overhyped and under-delivered on the business value promised for many years. The reasons vary by the product, software and implementation designs of different engineering schools of thought. I believe the software analytics engine should belong close to its observable scene, i.e. reside in the camera to perform well. It also must be a “thin client” to perform efficiently and cost effectively at the edge, especially in multiple camera configurations. The metadata delivered by the camera must have processing muscle available to process initial data analyzed by the camera. And the analytics have to be simple to configure for both technicians and end users. March Networks’ MegaPX analytics dome camera can be configured in five minutes, which is quite a breakthrough. This is where the wheels usually fall off this technology, resulting in unhappy customers. March Networks addresses all of the key elements with a true day/night, 1080p, motion detection unit that can be effectively used for people counting, customer queue time and tripwire security applications. Taking the “rocket” out of this science should help deliver the business results we have all been waiting for! — Boucherle
