March Network's Tagged RFID Object Search Recorded Video

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 20, 2016

Video analytics has gotten fairly good at tagging people in video, but it does not solve the problem of finding items like specific merchandise or high value equipment.

Using analytics to identify all objects in a scene may still be a long ways off, and will likely never be able to detect items concealed by a person. However, March Networks has an approach to this problem that can also be applied to other VMSes.

In this report we examine March's approach to object-based search and applications for their implementation.

Genetec has something similar with RF Code:

Wow, this is a really cool feature. I do a lot of work in the cannabis industry and this would be a great value add for my clients. I love it.

I hadn't considered that, but I agree, with the amount of seed-to-sale tracking that is going on in that sector something like this could make it easier when you have to investigate how/where a plant handled or originated pre-sale.

Brian, you're absolutely correct. Being able to integrate with seed-to-sale tracking provides a higher level of compliance which helps both the operator and the state quickly investigate an anomalies that are detected. Not to mention once it gets to the retail stage you can integrate into POS and now provide key business insights that many traditional retailers are already doing. I think the cannabis industry and the security companies that service the industry are in a unique position to drive innovation and growth of both industries simultaneously.

Any have experience deploying this solution? Any issues to be aware of? Looking for feedback.
