Johnson Controls has added two new appliances to its video security products portfolio: Tyco Analytics Appliance and Tyco Transcoder. When added to existing IP recorders, the hardware offloads video processing from network video recorders, increasing system capabilities without overhauling the infrastructure. The Tyco Transcoder increases transcoding by 14 channels to meet live streaming requirements with constrained network bandwidths while maintaining a small form factor. The simplified set-up reduces installation time and the hardware can be easily deployed in a variety of environments.
Apart from its extensive use for physical security, there’s another application popping up for video data: intelligent traffic management (ITM). Being a critical component in the Smart City movement across the globe, ITM is aiding metropolitan areas in learning more about traffic patterns in order to make transportation more efficient and safe.
