What is intelligent video?

Intelligent video is digital video technology integrated with analytical software. Video analytics software may run on a networked device, such as a sophisticated IP camera, in an embedded system or on a computer computing device.

Applications of intelligent video systems include:

  • Tracking a moving target.
  • Searching for an object.
  • Counting instances of something, such as the number of customers entering a building.
  • Identifying the geographic location of something or someone.
  • Detecting suspicious activity and triggering alarms and/or alerts.

Intelligent video is increasingly common in IP surveillance systems. Other applications include marketing and education.
