IDIS is supporting return-to-work tactics during COVID-19 with the launch of the AI Box (DV-2232). Powered by IDIS Deep Learning Engine, the AI Box is an add-on appliance that’s compatible with existing IDIS network cameras and DirectIP NVRs, eliminating the need for complex analytics software or edge VA devices.
The IDIS AI Box for COVID-19 includes functions for social distancing adherence, people counting and occupancy control, crowd detection mask detection and dashboard and reporting tools.
“The COVD-19 pandemic has tested everyone’s resilience,” said James Min, Managing Director, IDIS Europe. “IDIS has developed credible and practical solution to help reduce infection risks, with automation that improves operating efficiency and technology that avoids the cost of hiring in additional manpower or redeploying existing staff to higher-risk front line roles. Moving forward, much of this functionality will also prove particularly valuable for retail, with AI-driven video delivering insights into sales and improving the customer experience and for facilities managers to optimise buildings and workspace.”
Users of the AI Box can take advantage of four video analytics functions simultaneously across 32-channels and each camera stream, making the IDIS AI Box adaptable for all sizes of business. In addition, users can benefit from a perspective view, giving superior analysis compared to top view analytics cameras and ensuring that each camera provides exceptional surveillance for security, safety and data intelligence.
With the use of cameras positioned at entrances and exits, the IDIS AI Box generates AI-assisted alerts to overcrowding, with real-time calculations to underpin occupancy control interventions. For retails customers, dashboards positioned at store entrances use a three-step traffic light system to automate the admissions and flow in and out. In addition, the dashboards show estimated wait times at peak periods and allow retailers to customise the displays with company logos and promotional graphics.
In addition, comprehensive reporting tools are provided for all four of the video analytic functions. They provide data analysis, including people counts and occupancy, along with any violations, by time, day and month, for accurate and required record keeping. This data can then be exported to Excel spreadsheets for easy referencing.
