As part of the Security Essen Security Experts Forum, Jose Carlos Faria Agrela, Senior Sales Executive EMEA at Azena will deliver a presentation entitled, “How to start leveraging AI video analytics for and beyond security”. The presentation will explore emerging use cases for smart cameras and examine how security professionals can harness AI video analytic applications to add value to their organization beyond security.

Relevant Vertical Markets for the Application of Video Analytics Platform

  • retail
  • manufacturing and logistics
  • healthcare
  • parking
  • stadiums
  • oil and gas

“We are pleased to be able to illustrate the growing range of use cases that our platform can address, everything from simple line crossing and people counting to detecting smoke and fire on an autonomous robotic device,” said Sven März, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Azena.

Download and Install Apps onto a Video Surveillance Camera

The Azena Application Store features video analytic applications created by third-party developers. Users can download and install the apps onto their cameras with just a few clicks. This enables users to create video analytics solutions as individual as their organisation and allows them to react to changes quickly or gradually pivot and extend their camera system to ensure they are getting the most out of it.

The Azena platform allows multiple apps to be run in tandem on the same camera or different sets of apps on different cameras. Camera functionally can also be changed or extended simply by adding new or different apps where required. Cameras can easily be integrated into an existing video surveillance system with video management systems, or used in conjunction with other on-premise or cloud software platforms. The cameras can also be directly integrated with any endpoint for device control, for a full range of integration options.

3 Key Features for Integrators and End-Users

1. Autonomous robotic devices to monitor high-sensitivity environments

Smart cameras using the Azena Operating System are now being deployed on autonomous robotic devices used to monitor high-sensitivity environments, such as stadium and entertainment venues, manufacturing and logistics, and oil and gas facilities. Autonomous robots can traverse into high-risk areas that humans cannot safely access, or simply perform automated tasks, such as spill or hazard detection in a retail store, warehouse facility or corporate office environment.

2. Project Management: Critical infrastructure installations or remote sites with little to no internet connectivity

Integrators using the Azena platform can also benefit from enhanced device and project management capabilities to more effectively serve their customers. The platform offers a variety of new options for app installation and maintenance, from fully remote connections to new support for installations that run on a completely closed network, such as critical infrastructure installations or remote sites with little to no internet connectivity.

With more advanced project management features, integrators have a clearer picture of app licenses that are assigned to specific customers or projects. Camera installations can be more easily segmented by customer, project and location, and access rights for particular users can be assigned and managed based on projects. This data can also be integrated into an integrator’s existing project management software.

3. Develop, upload and sell your own app

The ability to develop and upload a proprietary app to the Application Store enables integrators to sell this type of app only to their customers. This allows highly specialised or vertically oriented integrators to further protect their unique approaches to certain customer segments or needs whilst still leveraging the Azena platform as part of their tailored solution.
