5 min setup and 6 second incident to alert time? These numbers sound like they are possible in a lab testing environment, however in the real world I find that hard to believe.
Also if a medium-large retail store decides to purchase this technology for 40 cameras, that would mean they would need roughly +40mbps upload capability for just pushing video to AWS. And that is at a pretty conservative 720p @ 10fps per camera.
In regard to resolution/fps, Percepta said the AI is trained at low FPS and resolution:
our AI is trained on just 15 FPS footage at a very low resolution. So it still performs very well in spite of these. In spite of this, you have sparse data. And we're also concerning pricing wise, supporting higher resolution data for higher accuracy while we're [sic] false positives.
In regard to large numbers of cameras, Percepta said it would be used in high value areas:
we've actually spoken with Walmart as well and they basically indicated it's not a blanket coverage of all cameras, it's high traffic items, you know, high value areas think jewelry, think electronics, cigarettes. Exactly. And even our store by store basis, it's not uniformly across the chain. It's, you know, the areas with higher theft, you're not going to put it you know, for nothing if shrink is not high.
