Hikvision, the provider of innovative security products and solutions, announces technology partnership with Videonetics, a visual computing platform development company. The partnership includes integration of Hikvision network cameras with Videonetics’ Intelligent Video Management Software (IVMS), which will enable customers to view, record and analyse Hikvision H.265+ compressed video streams from Hikvision network cameras, both in real-time preview and playback. Customers will also benefit from reduced cost of ownership due to low storage and bandwidth requirements without compromising the video quality. Advanced video analysis The integration will enable advanced video management features and video analytics applications. For example, through Videonetics IVMS, users will be able to view real-time video feeds, recorded video, navigate quickly from one camera view to another. Moreover, they can also export videos or video image snapshots from integrated Hikvision cameras for advanced video analysis such as object classification, crowd monitoring, perimeter protection, object of interest, smart urban video analytics and traffic monitoring etc. Field tests have shown that Hikvision H.265+ radically decreases the bitrate of ultra-high definition surveillance video by up to 67% compared to H.265 Importantly, all video streams will be compressed by Hikvision’s self-developed H.265+ smart codec technology. H.265+ significantly reduces bandwidth consumption and storage requirements. Field tests have shown that Hikvision H.265+ radically decreases the bitrate of ultra-high definition surveillance video by up to 67% compared to H.265. This is especially valuable when network conditions are unstable, when bandwidth is limited, or when customers are required to store data for extended periods of time. Limited bandwidth conditions “We are glad to be on board with Hikvision as technology partner. I am sure that our IVMS integration with Hikvision’s H.265+ compression technology will help our customers to design highly efficient surveillance solutions for both public and private sectors across the world,” said Avinash J. Trivedi, VP – Business Development of Videonetics. “Hikvision offers a Technology Partner Platform for partners to jointly develop versatile solutions needed by end-users,” said Adler Wu, Global Technology Alliance Manager at Hikvision. “Our H.265+ codec technology provides a more effective compression solution that allows our customers to achieve unhindered video transmission under limited bandwidth conditions and great savings on storage without compromising image quality.”
