Data is the fuel that drives applications in the IoT. Videos from IP cameras for security purposes contain more than just video information.
Cameras equipped with powerful processors and artificial intelligence can not only deliver but also analyze video and provide valuable insights.
On ACK Data website it shows some outstanding reasons why video analytics with security cameras is attractive for companies and especially for app developers.
According to PWC, the value of commercialized data will grow to over $300 billion by the end of 2022
According to LDV Capital (“A Paradigm Shift in Visual Data Capture”)
44 billion cameras in the world by 2022, 8% of those will be security cameras (over 3 billion cameras)
The “Internet of Eyes” will be larger than the “Internet of Things”
Where there is growth in cameras, there will be tremendous opportunity in the capture, analysis, and interpretation of visual data.
Massive camera growth will create infinite new business opportunities that cannot be fathomed today.
Therefore many new start-ups are working on video analytics and turning devices in the IoT into self-learning units. We have found some exciting applications here.
Let's take a look at some exciting startups and their ideas.
Start-Ups that will Revolutionize Video Analytics & Deep Learning
Data collection through video surveillance is an emerging source of revenue which is missed each and every year because its potential and value are simply unrecognized. By evaluating and analyzing content with ACK’s solution “Recall“, companies can generate revenue, which clearly affects the bottom line.
Rather than destroy collected data after 30 days, businesses should learn to evaluate that information and determine how it can be a revenue generator.
