IMS Comments on Video Analytics

By John Honovich, Published on Mar 25, 2009

At the IMS conference, Geoff from SecurityInfoWatch reported on video analytics progress. Money quote: "an industry niche that is maturing, but is still somewhat in its infancy." What's strange is that this is the same thing people said 5 years ago. The argument is made that the industry is not 'in dire straits' citing many deployments but then cites that only "$50 million was spent on PC-based (server-based) VCA projects in 2008." For a market segment with hundreds of millions of investment starting from the first half of this decade, it's a strange situation. Kohls' report talks about the problems of overselling but does not talk much about technological advances. However, a recent article from SecuritySystemsNewsEurope does, citing IBM and Milestone. IBM talks about "cross-correlation of analytics happening on different, multiple camera views" which sounds great except it is infeasible to do in production at any reasonable cost. Which, of course, brings us back to more over-selling.
