Easier to manage data
Video analytics makes managing data far easier. You can decide which information to stream, such as only streaming video when there is a moving object, or an alarm is triggered. This significantly reduces network strain and storage requirements. Technologies that make use of Video Analytics to increase the bitrate are Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction, it reduces image noise before encoding, and intelligent streaming, this technology achieves the most efficient bitrate by adjusting the encoder setting based on the level of movement.
Scalable and more robust
Intelligence at the edge also can make your surveillance infrastructure more robust and reliable. Every smart camera operates independently so there’s no need for a central analytics server. Decentralizing intelligence in this way means that a system can easily be scaled by adding more cameras, but also, if one camera fails, the rest of the system will maintain full performance.
