IntelliVision’s Scalable Video Cloud Services Patent Connects Cameras, Mobile Devices
The video Cloud service is said to provide reliability, security and real-time viewing and analytics-based monitoring in multi-million-camera networks.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — IntelliVision Technologies Corp., a provider of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning video and audio analytics software for smart cameras, announces it has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office titled “System and Method for Scalable Could Services,” number US 10,142,381 B2.
IntelliVision says this technology of scalable Cloud-based services is a key component of the company’s video analytics service, which can also be deployed on the device or at the local server level.
The patent was granted for the highly connected and scalable Cloud-based system that allows a video camera to recognize an event, upload the event data from the camera to the Cloud server, and then allow retrieval of the event data by end-user devices such as smartphones, with the ability for on-demand live streaming/viewing and further analytics computation in the Cloud.
The key advantages of the patented system over other systems are its scalability, security and consistent, reliable service for video cameras numbering in the millions, according to the company.
“As more and more IoT devices such as video doorbells and security cameras are integrated into the smart home and the enterprise environments, the need to manage millions of these devices becomes more urgent,” says Vaidhi Nathan, SVP cameras and analytics for NSC. “This patent demonstrates that IntelliVision continues to be at the forefront of new technology for large-scale deployments of smart camera video analytics.”
The system usually runs over Cloud services such as Amazon EC2, Microsoft Windows Azure or the Google App Engine, according to the company. End-users can set up and configure cameras for their monitoring needs and view the camera streams live using their mobile devices. Analytics events are stored and managed in the Cloud through these video Cloud services.
“IntelliVision has been a pioneer in intelligent video and audio analytics technology and associated monitoring systems for over a decade with significant investment in R&D,” says Nathan. “We are honored to receive this broad patent for our highly secure and scalable Cloud system.”
