Eagle Eye Networks, a global leader in cloud video surveillance and artificial intelligence (AI), has introduced Eagle Eye Smart Video Search, a new feature for all customers to make searching for video as fast and easy as searching the web.
Built into the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS (video management system), Smart Video Search allows customers to quickly search across all cameras and all locations and instantly find the exact video they’re looking for, and quickly share video clips. There is no extra subscription fee, and no special cameras, hardware or local installation are needed.
Similar to a web search, customers type in descriptions such as “man with blue shirt”, “person with backpack”, or “white Toyota car”. Results can be narrowed down by date, time, location or camera. Eagle Eye uses AI to index video in near real time, making the video searchable almost instantly, and delivering fast, accurate results. For example, if there’s a security incident in a parking garage, users can search and–within minutes–find the person who entered the parking facility in that region.
Business owners and security directors can use Smart Video Search to set up real-time alerts to notify them of important or problematic situations. Another important feature of Search is “re-identification,” the ability to identify a person of interest and follow them across all cameras. Examples include: getting an alert when a vehicle or person enters a facility at odd times, or when an unauthorised car parks in a restricted spot.
Other key differentiators of this new feature include:
● Available to all customers at no additional charge
● Works on any standard camera, with no additional hardware required
● Uses AI to enable faster search for forensic and real-time use
Eagle Eye Smart Video Search offers many new benefits such as saving time and resources when investigating an incident; providing real-time alerts; allowing security and law enforcement to make informed decisions during critical incidents; it also provides data to simplify security, improve operations, customer services, logistics, etc; and it can improve security and operations in retail, smart cities, smart parking, education, manufacturing, logistics, hospitality, healthcare, anywhere you have security cameras.
“With billions of security cameras deployed across the globe, the amount of video data is exploding, making it impractical to manually search security video for incidents, information or insight,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “Two decades ago, as the web was exploding into billions of documents, search engines transformed web pages into searchable content and made them accessible to everyone. Similarly, Eagle Eye Networks Smart Video Search transforms video into searchable content and makes it available to everyone.
