IntelliVision Technologies today announced it has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office titled “System and Method for Scalable Could Services,” number US 10,142,381 B2. This technology of scalable cloud-based services is a component of the IntelliVision video analytics service, which can also be deployed on the device or at the local server level.
The patent was granted for the scalable cloud-based system that allows a video camera to recognize an event, upload the event data from the camera to the cloud server, and then allow retrieval of the event data by end-user devices such as smartphones, with the ability for on-demand live streaming/viewing and further analytics computation in the cloud. According to IntelliVision Technologies, the advantages of the patented system over other systems are its scalability, security and consistent, reliable service.
The system usually runs over cloud services such as Amazon EC2, Microsoft Windows Azure or the Google App Engine. End users can easily set up and configure cameras for their monitoring needs and view the camera streams live using their mobile devices. Analytics events are stored and managed in the cloud through these video cloud services.
The IntelliVision family of video analytics solutions includes object detection and classification (humans, vehicles, pets, airplanes), people/vehicle counting, demographics, intrusion/perimeter watch, object left/removed, license plate recognition (ALPR/ANPR), audio/sound recognition and face recognition. Here are more details.
