Nowadays, security agencies are focusing on investing in better surveillance products and are deploying more and more surveillance cameras for round-the-clock monitoring of large areas. This has led to a rise in the amount of video data generated.
This data is difficult for security professionals to monitor as they can watch only a limited amount of data. Also, they tend to lose their concentration in a short span of time, and suspicious movements on screen are frequently overlooked. AI in video analytics solutions play an important role in monitoring video data as they can analyze large amounts of video data quickly, thus improving the effectiveness and accuracy of surveillance. Also, the application of AI in video analytics solutions is not only limited to surveillance as it also helps in improving marketing effectiveness, store operation, building layout design, traffic patterns, and other activities.
AI in video analytics involves three types of configurations: edge-based, server-based, and hybrid systems. In the edge-based configuration, cameras are provided with inbuilt analytics solutions for auto tracking and face detection. In the server-based configuration, the solution is deployed on the central server, thereby helping in complex processing. The hybrid system involves both the edge-based system and the server-based-system, thereby substantially reducing the overload of network and servers.
The global AI in video analytics market is driven by a rise in demand among enterprises for actionable insights from video data and increase in investments by governments in emerging technologies and public infrastructure to enhance public safety. Some of the major restraints hampering the market include the high amount of investments involved during the installation of legacy products and privacy issues associated with the solutions. Also growing deployments, investments and shift towards the IP based cameras is playing an important role in the AI in video analytics market.
Key players operating in the AI in video analytics market include Agent Video Intelligence Ltd., Cisco Systems, Inc., IBM Corporation, IntelliVision Technologies, Verint Systems, i2v System, Bosch Security Systems, NICE Systems, Honeywell International, ObjectVideo Labs, LLC., Viseum International Limited., and Pro-Vigil, Inc.. These companies invest considerably in research & development to incorporate new technologies in their solutions and develop new products. Additionally, these players engage in strategic partnerships with other players to expand their presence and gain market share in different regions across the globe.
