Author: IPVM Team, Published on Mar 09, 2018

Video analytics is hot again (one of the top 2 trends going into this year), this time driven by deep learning and artificial intelligence.

But, how much of video analytics are actually being used today?

200+ integrators told IPVM how often they use it and why they either choose to use or avoid analytics. And there is a new #1 reason why integrators say they do not use analytics. In this note, we break down the results and compare to our 2011, 2014 and 2016 studies.

2018 Usage

Almost half of integrators still rarely or never using video analytics with less than 1 in 5 using them often:
