March Networks unveils AI-enabled ME6 Series IP Cameras for accurate detection of security incidents and threats

March Networks, a globally renowned video security and video-based business intelligence solutions, announced that it is pleased to introduce its ME6 Series IP Cameras, a new 6 MP camera line powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). ME6 Series IP Cameras Incorporating advanced system-on-chip (SoC) technology from California-based company, Ambarella, the ME6 Series use Deep Neural Network processing power to accurately distinguish between people and vehicles. This built-in intelligence is combined with next-generation security analytics for the most accurate, real-time analysis and detection of events. Organisations can enhance security and rapidly respond to incidents with the cameras’ highly accurate notifications on perimeter and zone breaches, loitering, and atypical activity involving vehicles. The ME6 Series’ analytics are embedded on the cameras for convenient out-of-the-box use – no training required. AI-powered analytics The ME6 Series IP Cameras are March Networks most intelligent cameras to date “The ME6 Series IP Cameras are March Networks most intelligent cameras to date,” said Nathan Dinning, Edge Devices Product Manager for March Networks. He adds, “The AI models used in these devices are designed to accurately detect both people and vehicles. This means other objects, for example - a tree branch blowing in the wind, will not inadvertently trigger an alarm. This level of intelligence can greatly reduce false alarms and allow customers to more rapidly and accurately respond to potential threats.” Digital Overlap High Dynamic Range (DOL- HDR) In addition to AI-powered analytics, the ME6 Series also incorporate Digital Overlap High Dynamic Range (DOL- HDR), the latest in HDR sensor technology for superior image quality in highly contrasted lighting conditions. DOL- HDR combines three separate exposures in every frame, delivering only the sharpest, most colorful and well-lit images for customers. Additionally, the cameras offer a new Region of Interest (ROI) feature that allows users to adjust compression levels within identified zones and save on storage. Using this feature, customers can identify zones of high or low importance in the camera’s field of view and apply additional compression in those zones. When combined with March Networks’ existing Low Bit Rate (LBR) feature, the ROI feature can help customers reduce data rates by as much as 65%. Organisations can choose from two distinct ME6 Series models including: The ME6 IR Dome, an indoor/outdoor dome with a 3.6-11mm motorised lens with P-Iris The ME6 IR DuraBullet, purpose-built for outdoor environments, featuring a 2.7-12mm varifocal lens with P-Iris and remote zoom and focus Built-in IR LEDs Both ME6 Series models have built-in IR LEDs that can illuminate objects in the dark at over 130-feet (40 meters) away. Both are also protected by weather-proof (IP66), vandal-resistant (IK10) enclosures to ensure optimum performance in all climates. “We’re very pleased to add the ME6 Series IP Cameras to our portfolio,” said Dinning. “The powerful combination of accurate security analytics with superior image quality will make the ME6 Series a popular choice in both new and existing installations.”

March Networks announces integration between its Searchlight and Zebra Savanna cloud platform
March Networks announces integration between its Searchlight and Zebra Savanna cloud platform

March Networks, a global renowned video security and video-based business intelligence solutions company, is pleased to announce the expansion of its Retail Solution to include fraudulent return investigations through the Zebra Savanna data intelligence platform. March Networks’ new integration – between its Searchlight for Retail software and Doddle, which designs, develops and integrates consumer fulfilment technology – is powered by Zebra Savanna, a cloud-based platform that enables the real-time collection of data from Zebra Technologies’ sensors and devices. March Networks Searchlight March Networks Searchlight logs events from Zebra Savanna and other systems within the retail environment Through this unique collaboration, March Networks Searchlight logs events from Zebra Savanna and other systems within the retail environment, like Doddle, that are powered by the Zebra platform. Searchlight can then match those events with corresponding video clips for greater enterprise-wide visibility. For example, with the Searchlight-Doddle integration, retailers using Doddle can keep a record of all of their product returns in Searchlight. When a customer arrives in-store to return a product facilitated by Doddle’s returns technology, Searchlight records that event, allowing retailers to quickly and easily pull up the surveillance video associated with the return. This allows retailers to visually verify the details of all product returns, including the individuals involved and the condition of the product at the time of the return. Zebra Savanna cloud-based platform In addition, the integration also tracks other retail events such as coupon use at the point-of-sale (POS).  Retailers offering coupons through fulfillment partners like Doddle that are powered by Zebra Savanna can track the full buying cycle in Searchlight. When a customer uses a coupon, it’s recorded in Zebra Savanna and visible in Searchlight, allowing retailers to track the success of promotions offered through third-party vendors. “As more consumers turn to online channels for their retail purchases and returns, these latest Searchlight capabilities bridge the gap between digital and in-store transactions, providing retailers with complete visibility into the buying cycle,” said Jeff Corrall, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Integrations for March Networks. “According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), 11% of retail purchases are returned and an average 8% of returns are fraudulent. With Searchlight, retailers can proactively detect and target this fraud, and recoup associated losses.” Power of integrated data and video “By working with leading retail manufacturers like Zebra Technologies and fulfillment technology companies like Doddle, March Networks is proving the true power of integrated data and video, and its ability to positively impact the retail bottom line.” Returns can have an impact on retailers’ margins, especially over peak periods" “Returns can have an impact on retailers’ margins, especially over peak periods,” said Gary O’Connor, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Doddle. “Working with partners like March Networks means the Doddle platform can provide deeper insight. Retailers have the ability to re-convert customers through personalized digital journeys, while also having access to more capability to prevent fraud.” Integration with RFID data from Zebra sensors March Networks’ Retail Solution is used by more than 300 retailers worldwide to facilitate improved efficiency and compliance, reduction in losses and risk management, thereby enhancing customer service and compete more successfully in the market. Searchlight is the centerpiece of the solution that helps retailers to improve performance and profitability through the integration of clear surveillance video, relevant business data, including POS transactions, and highly accurate analytics. March Networks’ Searchlight also integrates with radio frequency identification (RFID) data from Zebra sensors and devices for enhanced product tracking, loss prevention and inventory management. March Networks will showcase the Searchlight for Retail-Doddle integration powered by Zebra Savanna in Zebra Technologies’ booth #3301 at NRF 2020: Retail’s Big Show Expo, January 12-14 in New York, NY.
