Pelco Partners With IBM for Intelligent Video Analytics

Pelco says the integration will leverage data from video footage to quickly identify and respond to potential risks or opportunities.

LAS VEGAS — Pelco by Schneider Electric​, a global leader in surveillance and security, announced at ISC West that it has formed a technology alliance with IBM to create “Pelco Analytics Powered by IBM.”

The collaboration integrates IBM’s deep learning analytics into Pelco’s video management system (VMS), leveraging data from video footage to quickly identify and respond to potential risks or opportunities, according to the company.

It is said the analytics will be able to quickly analyze large volumes of archived video to identify people and objects of interest, decreasing the time needed for video forensic analyses.

“Our strategic alliance with IBM builds on Pelco’s mission to leverage the full power of video to ensure video footage receives proper evaluation, attention, and action,” says Jean-Marc Theolier, CEO of Pelco by Schneider Electric. “By fully integrating and leveraging IBM’s expertise in deep learning and powerful algorithms, we will create more efficient and safer business, school and city environments, with the ultimate goal of making the world a better place to work, live and learn.”

Pelco says its user interface for analytics will be optimized based upon the solution to provide a superior user experience. New efficiencies offered through Pelco’s VideoXpert VMS and Pelco Analytics Powered by IBM will allow cities and other large commercial and public organizations to manage video from thousands of cameras, analyze patterns of movement and behavior, and make changes to processes and policies that can help mitigate or eliminate potential problems, according to the company.

“This collaboration combines both IBM’s and Pelco’s knowledge and experience in verticals and enterprises to drive best practices and innovative, new solutions,” says Mark Gildersleeve, head of business solutions for Watson content and IoT platform, IBM. “Together, we aim to help cities and enterprises make smarter, safer decisions.”
