ioimage / DVTel Analytic Updates

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 20, 2014

In the 4 years since DVTel Acquired ioimage, they have gone quiet but upcoming new products combined with the VideoIQ acquistion could be giving a boost to the former leader. Indeed, recently, PSA endorsed ioimage as having far greater probability of detection, after Avigilon dumped PSA's access to long standing premier partner VideoIQ analytics.

In this note, we share our findings from talking with DVTel and comparing to VideoIQ.

[UPDATE: See IPVM's test results of the HD ioimage analytic camera.]

This is an interesting development and I look forward to some head to head tests.

You might want to consider changing the title of the article though. When I read "ioimage / DVTel Analytic Improvements", that's what I thought I was going to read, were some test results. Maybe a better title might be "ioimage / DVTel Announces Improvements".

Thanks, and again, look forward to some head to head tests.

Tests almost always have the word 'Test' or 'Shootout' to make it very clearly that it is a test.

I changed the title from 'improvements' to 'updates'

I am excited about the Updates on the ioimage / DVTel line – the critical portion for me is the Monitoring station integration.

Prior to deploying large numbers of VideoIQ we were an ioimage end-user with approximately 500 channels. VideoIQ's mature platform is hands down the best. I suspect this feature is in the works for DVtel similar to the AXIS integration.

As a large end-user of VideoIQ I did not welcome the purchase, I would have preferred AXIS acquire VideoIQ however no one consulted me. We are watching the acquisition closely.

I loved the ioimage product line in the past, I am certain they will take advantage of the opportunity’s at hand.

Hmmm..... Head to head tests. I have both cameras on hand. Time for some fun?

Brad,

you have a DVTEL SC1 (VGA resolution) and VideoIQ HD dome.

comparing the two would be like racing a 1973 VW beetle against a 2012 Hyundai :)

I suggest waiting for our ioimage HD line for an "apple to apple" comparison..

You, but don't you have the option of seleting a lower resolution for both analysis and recording in the VideoIQ unit? I though I saw that option last I looked, but not 100% sure....

Sagy, Hey buddy! Yes this true. I also have a VideoIQ VGA unit too, which is what I would compare it to. FWIW last time I did tests... The ioimage unit had much better range detection. Looking forward to the HD products. -Brad

Fair enough my friend. VGA to VGA is a fair race ;)

Yes its possible, but it just controls the output resolution, not the resolution at which the unit runs its analytics.

It appears IOIMAGE TRK-101 encoders are only supported by DVTEL vms. So no 3rd party VMS support them that I can find. I can't find any information on 3rd party vms supporting IOIMAGE equipment since DVTEL bought them. This doesn't seem like a viable option then to VideoIQ

Thanks for the question about DVTel ioimage 3rd party support.

I asked DVTel and they say that ioimage is integrated with Exacq and Milestone.

I can now confirm Dvtel ioimage video does work with Milestone, we are still struggling to get an event server plugin for Milestone inorder to manage the alarms. Will keep everyone posted.
