Vemotion report a surge in streaming video surveillance applications
Vemotion Interactive, the UK manufacturer of low-latency, high-performance, 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 seen 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, 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, and the mix of local authorities, emergency services, government agencies and military sectors have all been extremely busy throughout the period. “Several project decisions were delayed initially but we have seen activity really pick-up latterly,” confirms says Steve Haworth, CEO at Vemotion. “Private sector projects have been much more mixed, and many are now starting to look at video streaming as ways to be more efficient and flexible.”
The ability to install cameras in an area of specific interest, whether for temporary deployment or fixed; to monitor crime hot-spots for drugs observation, persistent vandalism, fly-tipping or neighbourhood nuisances, has seen a noticeable uptake. With Vemotion’s ultra-low latency encoders/cameras ability to be deployed beyond the economical reach of existing fixed CCTV networks, Steve puts the noticeable 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.
“More and more integrators are building Vemotion’s smaller, lighter and more powerful encoders into PTZ cameras on the edge or running Vemotion 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, and alongside the use of video analytics, busy control rooms 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 to 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,” Steve explains. “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, lightweight Vemotion encoders to provide live mobile video on drones for search and rescue operations has really escalated, to provide quicker and cheaper airborne search capability vs the traditional expensive helicopter alternative. “
