IDIS introduces DV-1304-A solution: the ‘AI Box for Surveillance’

SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY manufacturer IDIS has expanded its range of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered add-on devices with the launch of the ‘AI Box for Surveillance’, designated the DV-1304-A.

The NDAA-compliant DV-1304-A model provides end users with all the benefits of AI-powered video through a simple and affordable four-channel add-on box, thereby eliminating the need for analytics software or for the host organisation to upgrade to edge AI cameras.

In fact, what is the latest AI device from IDIS allows highly accurate and multi-function analysis from just a single camera without any need for calibration.

Pre-installed with the IDIS Deep Learning Engine, the ‘AI Box’ can be simply connected to existing NVRs. Leveraging the power of DirectIP plug-and-play technology, end users can easily deploy additional boxes in order to expand their systems. With this approach, SMEs can maximise the value of their existing investments and, in tandem, adopt a proactive approach towards enhancing security and safety.

Taking advantage of simple connection and no ongoing license fees, users can now benefit from highly accurate analytics including object detection, line crossing, loitering detection and face detection, with the added benefits of faster and more efficient event search.

Employing either the cost-free, fully-featured IDIS Center or the enterprise class IDIS Solution Suite VMS, operators can configure real-time notifications in order to oversee everyday events and receive alerts to potential threats before losses or damage can occur. This eliminates the need for security personnel to monitor multiple surveillance streams, in turn resulting in faster responses to incidents and more positive outcomes.

James Min, managing director for IDIS Europe, explained: “Deep learning video analytics have a vital role to play in driving a proactive approach to managing safety and security, while at the same time increasing operational efficiency. The launch of the DV-1304-A further builds out the IDIS true plug-and-play, end-to-end solution for a range of applications. It’s an innovative and affordable appliance that delivers all of the benefits of AI-powered video without the associated price tag, guaranteeing a low total cost of ownership.”
