A perfect IIoT tool for integrators: how will you use it to innovate?

    Axis is all but synonymous with network-based surveillance cameras. The same operational efficiency, open APIs, and edge computing that built a world-leading position in that sector can be used for industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions, helping integrators and end-users improve productivity, safety, and quality while reducing waste and downtime. Ask anyone about robots, and […]

      Future-proofing video surveillance investments with edge analytics

      You’ve probably heard of ‘edge analytics’ (or ‘analytics on the edge’) in relation to video surveillance. Put in its simplest form, it relates to increasingly powerful video analytics taking place on the ‘edge’ of the network, i.e. in the camera itself. My colleague Andres Vigren’s recent post provides a great introduction. As with any new […]

        Artificial intelligence on the edge: the opportunities for video surveillance

        In the world of video surveillance, one of the primary benefits of edge computing will be the ability to undertake advanced analytics using artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning within cameras themselves. Firstly, what do we mean by “on the edge”? The number of devices on the edge of our security networks is growing and […]

          The 6 technology trends affecting the security sector in 2021

          It’s useful when looking forward to first look backward: hindsight has a wonderful way of providing context for future-gazing activity. And when looking back over the past year, one insight could understandably be that attempting to predict the future is a futile activity! While the COVID-19 pandemic had taken hold in Asia before the end […]

            Artificial intelligence in the surveillance sector

            If you’re a bit tired of hearing about the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) in our lives and work, you are  not alone! AI have been one of the buzzwords of the past few years, and like all buzzwords its overuse and misunderstanding can lead people to be skeptical about its potential. While that’s understandable, […]

              Analytics and the future of physical security

              Axis recently hosted an online event, Understanding Analytics and the practical guide to implementation. During the event, I spoke about the past, present and future of analytics, together with my colleagues, Shaun Southall and Wayne Davis. This has prompted me to consider the technological developments, new methods of working and advances in analytics and artificial […]
