That noted, I do think we should do some video analytics testing for the multi-imagers. While most multi-imagers are likely going to be poor in analytics, if Avigilon's are strong, it is something we should consider.
For Network Optix, when there is an issue such as a multi-directional camera taking 2 licenses for 4 heads, they will fix that in a patch update. The issue just needs to be brought to their attention. They will happily give out temp licenses until the patch can be released so that you can record without needing additional paid licenses.
We contacted Network Optix about the Avigilon camera requiring two licenses in NX Witness, they responded and said it was a software issue and all multi-imager cameras should require one license. If a customer comes across this issue, they can contact support and a patch will be shipped to them. Moving forward the model will be supported with just one license.
We added a section under the NX witness issue explaining this.
Added a section explaining the performance of Avigilons self-learning analytics during testing. The analytics rejected false alarms from many common sources such as blinking lights, shadows, drastic light changes, swaying foliage, and small/large animals in the scene. Avigilon's self-learning analytics also did not miss any detections on people or vehicles in the scene.
