Ex-Googler Startup Camio Cloud Video Tested

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Dec 16, 2015

Two ex-Googlers, one who was a Director of Product Management and another who is a Stanford PhD, have built a cloud video solution that aims to deliver Google style searching to cloud video / surveillance.

Camio has introduced advanced analytics (people, vehicles, color) and plain language search, essentially allowing users to "google" their Camio cameras for the video they want.

This search is shown in this animation:

We tested Camio with IP cameras, including Axis and Nest, to see how well these features performed.
