VideoIQ, a producer of IP surveillance camera systems, has partnered with FLIR to create a solution that provides analytics, network video recorder (NVR) storage and IP video encoding for FLIR’s high-performance thermal cameras.
The Thermal Analytics Processor uses VideoIQ’s new FLIR mode analytics to enable users to automatically classify detected objects as people, vehicles or boats, thereby delivering the greatest accuracy while dramatically reducing false alarms, VideoIQ says. The Thermal Analytics Processor optimized for FLIR, provides 160 gigabytes of on-board NVR storage, eliminating the need to stream images across a network to a central NVR and reducing network traffic and bandwidth by up to 90 percent, the company says.
By automatically encoding analog video from a FLIR camera into an IP video signal, the Thermal Analytics Processor makes those cameras plug-and-play compatible with existing IP networks, thereby simplifying site infrastructure, VideoIQ says. The Thermal Analytics Processor supports integration with many video management systems including Genetec, Milestone, ONSSI, Lenel, and VideoIQ View.
By working with FLIR, VideoIQ has developed the most scalable and accurate zero light surveillance solution available on the market for critical infrastructure, government and transportation customers, said Ed Bednarcik, VideoIQ’s president and CEO.
