It’s an often-quoted fact that a human can survive more than three weeks without food, but only three days without water. And many sectors of industry – not least food production – rely […]

            What factors should you consider for optimal video analytics performance?

            AI continues to be hailed as the technology that will augment and improve human performance in many sectors and the video surveillance industry is no exception. AI-based analytics is increasingly being used to quickly process large amounts of data and trigger actions. These functions help to support a security team when monitoring large and changing […]
