Vemotion reports surge in streaming video surveillance applications

VEMOTION INTERACTIVE – the UK manufacturer of live video streaming solutions for systems integrators and OEM solutions providers – reports that, over the past 12 months, trends in streaming live video have accelerated and the company has witnessed an increase in demand for its mobile and rapid deployment CCTV camera solutions.

Delivering ultra-low latency, high-resolution live streaming HD video transmission over GPRS, 3G, 4GLTE, 5G, Wi-Fi and Satellite networks, models in Vemotion’s range of low bandwidth video streaming products provide live video surveillance solutions for mobile, rapid deployment, temporary or permanent deployment CCTV video surveillance applications.

Over the last year, Vemotion’s public sector business has remained robust. Contracts with local authorities, the Emergency Services, Government agencies and the military have all been extremely busy throughout the period. 

“Several project decisions were delayed initially, but lately we’ve seen activity really pick up,” confirmed Steve Haworth, CEO at Vemotion. “Private sector projects have been much more mixed. Many are now starting to look at video streaming as a way in which to be more efficient and flexible.” 

The ability to install cameras in an area of specific interest, whether for temporary deployment or fixed, and to monitor crime ‘hot spots’ for drugs observation, persistent vandalism, fly-tipping or neighbourhood nuisances has witnessed a noticeable uptake. With Vemotion’s ultra-low latency encoders/cameras’ inherent ability to be deployed beyond the economical reach of existing fixed CCTV networks, Haworth puts that uptake down to agencies wanting to maximise their surveillance budgets and efficiency. “In essence, to be more proactive at capturing off-grid incidents rather than missing events.”

Operation on mobile devices

According to Haworth, more and more integrators are building Vemotion’s smaller, lighter and more powerful encoders into PTZ cameras on the edge or running the company’s streaming software on mobile devices. 

“The simple integration of our streaming encoders and software makes it very easy to capture live high-quality video footage as it unfolds. Alongside the use of video analytics, busy Control Room operators can be automatically alerted to activity without the need for constant human monitoring. This provision provides ‘eyes on the ground’ and the vital intelligence for organisations to make faster and more informed decisions that drive better outcomes.”

Using Vemotion’s range of encoders, customers can live stream and control low latency surveillance camera video footage from anywhere without the need for wired infrastructures. 

“Integrators and organisations are developing new solutions to a raft of common problems,” concluded Haworth. “For example, we’re seeing the Vemotion VB-35 encoder allied to facial and face mask recognition being deployed across many applications. The use of compact and lightweight Vemotion encoders to provide live mobile video on drones for search and rescue operations has really escalated. This solution provides a quicker and cheaper airborne search capability when set against the traditional expensive helicopter alternative.”
