How modern video analytics make an impact on the industry


By Scott DunnDec 01, 2022

Video analytics is in the midst of a revolution. For decades, the video surveillance goal was primarily to record video for later review in the event of a security-related incident. True, there might be a security guard keeping an eye on a handful of wall monitors to look for signs of suspicious activity, but by-and-large the technology was reactive. Of course, that has all changed in recent years, and the advancement of video analytics has made security technology more proactive, alerting on incidents in real time and allowing security personnel to respond quickly and effectively.

That technology continues to evolve and improve. Those improvements have come in the form of better camera (image) quality, more powerful computing at the edge, greater cloud integration and expanded use cases that go beyond security—all of which has played an important role in changing the way today’s organizations use video analytics. As we move into 2023, those changes are worth keeping an eye on—both because of how they have already affected the industry, and how they promise to affect change it in the future. As the analytics revolution continues, a number of key analytics trends that will change the way businesses operate in ways that go far beyond security.

Trend 1. Hybrid Deployments Will Continue to Grow
The advent of cloud computing was a significant development for analytics, allowing organizations to take care of vast amounts of computing power beyond their on-site capabilities. For video analytics, cloud was somewhat limited in its application—after all, sending an entire video feed to the cloud for analysis would require vast amounts of not only bandwidth, but storage space as well. Fortunately, the recent development of Deep Learning Processing Units (DLPUs) has dramatically increased the processing power of modern IOT Devices such as cameras, allowing them to conduct onboard processing and run analytics natively at the network edge. As a result, only the relevant metadata (and maybe a few seconds of video) needs to be sent to the cloud.
