IDIS Partners With VMI for Remote Monitoring Capability With Deep Learning Analytics
Together, the companies are delivering AI-supported remote surveillance services, including business operations monitoring.
COPPELL, Texas — Buyers of video technology are focusing increasingly on business protocol enforcement applications, in addition to traditional security, says IDIS America and virtual guarding and monitoring service partner, Virtual Management Intelligence (VMI).
The two companies announce they are working together to deliver AI-supported remote surveillance services, including business operations monitoring, in sectors such as transportation, warehousing, cannabis production, food processing, banking and finance.
In the transportation sector, for example, IDIS video is being used by VMI to improve monitoring of 24-point vehicle safety checks which must be carried about by drivers to ensure compliance with Department of Transportation (DoT) requirements.
At high-security locations such as banks, the company is helping to streamline and adhere to opening and closing protocols. And, in major industrial applications — from coffee roasting to food processing — its monitoring services are underpinning both safety and production line efficiency, according to an announcement.
“These are applications where customers want video technology to focus on the wider wellbeing of their business operations, and to reduce their liabilities,” says San Kim, VMI, operations Director. “Security is still a key requirement but there is a growing realization that cameras can be used for so much more. VMI is using IDIS end-to-end video solutions, including IDIS Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA) to deliver enterprise-level monitoring to more customers more affordably.”
He adds, “IDLA’s automated detection tools — including line-cross, loitering and object detection — are taking pressure off VMI’s monitoring teams and helping them give users of all sizes access to the kind of customized 24/7 surveillance that was traditionally only available to large corporations with dedicated control room operations.”
Kim also says that the convenience of the solution is helping users cut their insurance liabilities and reduce litigation costs.
The comparatively long operational life of IDIS video tech, its straightforward maintenance and upgrade paths, along with its ease of use for VMI’s customers, are also proving to be valuable in reducing the company’s trouble-shooting workload, according to the company.
“Compared to alternative mix-and-match solutions that we’ve tried, the IDIS end-to-end, single supply model is more cost-effective to operate and maintain,” Kim adds. However, he warns against the industry over-promising when it comes to the capabilities of deep learning analytics. “For the video sector as a whole, the challenge now is to focus on applicable solutions that work in real life. We’ve already proven that our deep learning engine is solid, we now need to look at how best to use the level of accuracy we’ve developed.”
Jason Burrows, sales director, Western U.S., IDIS America, says, “We are working closely with VMI to offer some of the best value video monitoring solutions available, not just for security purposes but for much wider business applications, as well. Looking ahead, we see exciting opportunities for deep learning analytics to be closely customized to solve the specific problems of individual customers.”
