Favorite Video Analytics 2016

By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 22, 2016

Video analytics are security professional's choice for the next big thing.

Despite that, our Video Analytics Market Guide and Favorites 2014 showed that adoption was still poor and only one vendor had significant support.

Now, in our 2016 guide, 150 integrators told us who their favorite analytics were and what they were using.

Inside this report, we examine integrator's choices and share color commentary on why integrators choose what they did.

John,

As this was a survey of your constituency, it is the "favorite" and as such the only ones that get evaluated (or presented) are those that are "voted" on by said constituency.

I'd love it if the options could be expanded to include some outliers that are great choices, but don't lock you into a specific VMS product or camera manufacturer.

I've been using HPE Autonomy as of late, and despite some startup glitches and frustrations, it's beginning to show its mettle in both performance and agnosticism. It has it's own VMS (of course it does), but works and plays well with two or three other VMS brands.

The product offers multiple analytic products under one technology roof and is really beginning to take shape in the US market.

The product can handle LPR (multi-country, mixed plates, car / color identification), Facial (onboarded or not), Scene Analysis and detection (heuristic learning algorithm for aberrant behavior detection) and audio detection (using camera's built-in audio) to discover audio alerts and look for specific patterns or language spoken.

All this to say, I think that broadening the review (beyond Installers favorite - which usually leads directly to whomever is providing the largest margin) is a good thing.

Something to think about -

Thanks,

Ed

Ed, thanks for the feedback. Can we chat offline so we can hear a little more about your HP Autonomy experience? Autonomy is just not widely used so it's not surprising it would not show up here.

On this point:

"beyond Installers favorite - which usually leads directly to whomever is providing the largest margin"

I disagree here. For example, Axis is overwhelmingly the favorite camera and they provide poor margin. And VideoIQ/Avigilon has been the favorite three straight times, and in our testing, the reason for that is fairly clear. Of the analytics that don't cost a small fortune (e.g., IBM, HP Autonomy, etc.), VideoIQ/Avigilon has worked the best.

Who here has used people counting and what product(s) did you use?

Did it perform well and was it easy to set up?

Did you user have a preference for cloud based or something running inside their own network?

Any additional comments or insight are appreciated

Thanks

Maybe one should separate the video analytics into edge-based vs server-based or live detection vs post-event.

This would give a better comparison.

Looking at the responses, edge beats server by a wide margin and live detection beats post-event by a similar large margin.
