Umbo Computer Vision, a provider of autonomous video security technology, has announced the release of Umbo SmartBullet. Umbo SmartBullet is the bullet-style variant of its learning cameras for businesses, integrators and governments looking for autonomous video security capabilities and a simple end-to-end user experience.
Surge in camera deployments
“Approximately 119 million professional video cameras were sold globally in 2017*,” said Jon Cropley, Principal Analyst in Video Surveillance and Security for IHS Markit, a business information provider. “This major surge in camera deployments has caused a significant increase in hours of footage to be monitored. As a result the need for faster processing and higher quality resolution has never been stronger.”
With real-time video security capabilities and AI-based technology, SmartBullet enables facilities managers at businesses in high crime areas, critical infrastructure installations, school campuses, transportation systems and other public venues to record, track and receive more accurate notifications when intruders have entered a property, climbed a wall, crossed a border, etc.
Solving a market-wide problem
This higher rate of accuracy means alerts that security managers will actually want to see and pay attention to, creating a safer environment for customers, employees, civilians, and students.SmartBullet takes video quality up a notch, delivering better resolutions and higher frame rates than the SmartDome
“To date, the majority of security cameras on the market are lacking high video resolution, data processing capabilities or have weak exteriors. SmartBullet is the perfect solution to this market-wide problem,” said Shawn Guan, CEO at Umbo Computer Vision. “It is capable of processing more streams at better resolutions and adaptive, transformative design makes it right for all sorts of different environments.
Additionally, SmartBullet seamlessly integrates with Umbo SmartCloud and Umbo Light services for the best user experience in the industry.”
SmartBullet features and capabilities include:
Full metal body armour
SmartBullet is built with distinctive full-metal armour displaying a powerful look that deters potential crime on sight. The stunning design is as tough as it looks, rated IK10 for high impact resistance. Users can also enjoy the design’s IP66 dust and water rating for protection from the elements.
3x more powerful
SmartBullet takes video quality up a notch, delivering better resolutions and higher frame rates than the SmartDome. Higher quality streams mean better results when Umbo Light, the company’s visual intelligence computer vision service, is active. SmartBullet will also have two-way audio and zooming capabilities to improve overall data capture.
Featuring an industry-first transformative design, SmartBullet can be configured for different customer needs. Available configurations at launch include an LED torch for floodlight illumination and infrared (IR) for visibility up to 160 feet.
