Video surveillance has become a necessity and standard of security for all kinds of businesses around the world. But smart, tech-savvy businesses are now taking it to the next level with video analytics. Keep reading to learn more about video analytics, as well as why you need it for your business.
What is Video Analytics?
Similar to the way the human brain controls the entire body, a video analytics system is the hub of tracking, measuring, and analyzing the video coming through your surveillance system. Video analytics uses algorithms and AI software to increase security and ramp up the way you make use of the video you’re capturing. The system has dozens of functionalities including smoke detection, motion detection, facial recognition, and much more.
Who Needs Video Analytics?
Whether you’re a large company or small business, the sheer amount of video you’re recording is likely to be far too overwhelming for you to take full advantage of. Any type of business can take advantage of intelligent video analytics. The system has a vast array of features to maximize your security efforts while reducing costs and streamlining processes. Here are just a few of the many industries benefiting from video analytics.
Surveillance is a must at any hotel, but video analytics can fill in the gaps where the surveillance may not be enough. Advanced data reports allow hotel managers to spot suspicious activity or quickly locate unattended luggage.
Any place with large crowds can be a target for criminal activity and violence. Major sporting arenas can stop suspicious persons before they do any harm with the help of facial recognition and tampering detection.
Our real-time alert system can be a huge help to overburdened law enforcement teams. Video analytics can track footage and scan for dangerous activity, then send an instant alert to notify authorities.
With so many patients and visitors in and out of hospitals, it can be an overwhelming task for security teams to monitor security screens. Healthcare organizations can take out the guesswork by pairing their current efforts with video analytics.
When studies are being conducted over time, researchers will do anything to protect precious data. Research labs can use video analytics to track locations and detect smoke or fire before it destroys lab specimens.

The Technology Behind Video Analytics
Pro-Vigil’s video analytics takes what is captured on camera and turns it into structured data that can be analyzed. This happens automatically, effectively detecting and determining certain events based on what is happening within the frame. It requires no extra analysis work on the ground, making it an automated process once programmed. Video analytics is technology that’s also able to eliminate the likelihood of a false alarm by identifying and ignoring activities considered irrelevant. The technology can focus on what’s important and filter out the surrounding white noise.
Benefits and Features
Our video analytics system reduces the amount of time needed to collect data and analyze it. Much of this happens automatically, which can be of great benefit when needing precise analysis in the moment. That means when something suspicious, troublesome, or dangerous is detected, alerts are sent out immediately, notifying the proper authorities who can then act to rectify the situation.
The data recorded from our surveillance analytics systems is stored so that is can be accessed at any time. This is done through our advanced video search options, enabling users to pull up the information they want based upon the parameters set by the system. The same system can also access this information whenever it needs to in order to place more accurate context on current events being observed.
The data and analyses collected from our video analytics systems can be sent to one of Pro-Vigil’s Central Surveillance Centers for further insights. Reports can then be sent to give you informative analytical discoveries. These reports help keep you updated on what has been found and how the system is functioning. As a result, you know the details on your video analytics software performance.
