Johnson Controls unveils AI powered NVR for accurate people counting and tracking


Johnson Controls is introducing a new, more powerful Network Video Recorder (NVR) that will provide the foundation for self-training analytics and, eventually, artificial intelligence.

The hardware offers highly accurate people counting and tracking from an overhead view by distinguishing between humans and objects in the camera’s field of view. When combined with the full suite of analytics available through VideoEdge, as well as the command and control of the Victor Video Management System, users are able to access insightful business data. This includes rules like crowd formation, heat mapping, perimeter protection and license plate recognition.

The NVR manages analytic reporting with confidence via a graphic processing unit that optimises performance beyond standard video intelligence. The Deep Intelligence NVR features all the capabilities of the powerful VideoEdge 2U NVR such as maximising smart streaming resources through triple video streams, H.265 codec support, VideoEdge TrickleStor edge-based redundancy and front-accessible storage drives. The victor client on VideoEdge hardware platforms allow users to leverage high-performance video streaming, audio, video intelligence and an expansive feature set for improved real-time command and management
