D2K Project: SecurityHive’s Data to Knowledge Project – IntelliVision


SecurityHive’s D2K Project presents four questions to physical security and video surveillance product manufacturers asking them how their products turn computer data into business knowledge (D2K) their customers can apply to their business – and to their bottom line.

We reached out to IntellVision, a San Jose, CA., company that is a vendor of “Intelligent Video Analysis and Automated Monitoring” products and solutions to the security, surveillance, and safety markets. IntelliVision products have been deployed at customer sites since early 2003.

Here is IntelliVision’s D2K feedback:

Question #1)
Define the users that would be interested in your product/service and what traditional benefits they would gain from similar products/services.
We have a Channel/Partners strategy where we want to be the provider of video analytics to security channels/partners in the security industry. This means that SI/patners/ manufacturers of all kinds, hardware and software alike, can leverage our 12 years of video analytic development and embed our solutions in their products to help them differentiate or add value to their offerings. The best part about it is that our customers are not limited to video analytics for the security industry but rather IntelliVision offers retail, transportation, consumer home security, access control, and others as well. We are a one stop shop. 

Question #2)
Explain what business challenges your product/service solves and why customers would be interested.
In a matured industry where differentiation becomes difficult, video analytics is the new & latest category of innovative technology. Cameras manufacturers, for example, have been fighting over resolution for a few years now but this will plateau at a certain point; video analytics however will continue to evolve, change and help cameras to distinguish themselves in a cluttered and matured industry. 

Question #3)
Elaborate on how the users of your product/service will turn the usage of your product/service into business knowledge about their environment that would lead to a greater business understanding.
If we are talking about end users here, video analytics provides them what traditional video surveillance lacked, real time awareness. Historically, a surveillance system would record and record until you something bad happened and you needed to review the video. Now video analytics tells you what’s happening as it happens, so you can prevent it. Now that IntelliVision is at the forefront of putting analytics inside cameras instead of big bulky servers, analytics will be more widely adopted and more crime, theft and other security threats will be prevented. 

Question #4)
Describe the process of how the use of your product/service will help businesses turn the data gained into greater business awareness/knowledge for their own benefit.
IntelliVision Retail BI and Analytics suite converts video into data and business information. This includes customer counts, metrics, service times etc. Our customers use this information and dash board to gain valuable insight into their own businesses and continue to focus on improving this. Improvements can be reduce service time and queue length and improve business efficiency.
