With more verticals looking to video surveillance as an IoT application, Salient Systems’ platform will enable partners to solve specific customer problems through big data and analytics capabilities.
Salient Systems – a longtime force in video surveillance – is taking its CompleteView VMS platform into the booming Internet of Things market.
Tom Chamard, executive vice president of global sales at Salient Systems, said CompleteView VMS’ ability to quickly render and manage video surveillance over a WAN or LAN makes it a “compelling” offering for solution providers looking to gain a foothold in IoT.
“The manner through which we process the video is very efficient, and we can render the video and do forensics on the video rapidly,” he said.
As more businesses look to video surveillance as an IoT application, the CompleteView VMS platform – which can be integrated with other software packages – will enable partners to work with customers to solve specific problems through big data and analytics capabilities, according to Chamard.
For instance, Salient Systems has worked with a retail store to install a video surveillance system that helped it track personnel behavior and marketing trends and keep tabs on potential theft and liability claims, he said.
“In retail we have customers leveraging our platform to optimize their merchandising processing, traffic flow, and where to position goods in their store,” Chamard said. “Those kinds of analytics can run on that infrastructure and it’s an example of how we interface with IoT functionality.”
