Video-surveillance vendor VideoIQ has partnered with FLIR to create a solution that provides analytics, edge NVR storage, and IP video encoding optimized for FLIR's range of high-performance thermal cameras.

Building on VideoIQ's adaptive analytics technology, the Thermal Analytics Processor uses VideoIQ's new proprietary FLIR Mode analytics specially tuned to get the most out of FLIR's high-resolution thermal cameras. The Analytics Processor, in conjunction with FLIR's world-class thermal imaging cameras, enables users to automatically classify detected objects as people, vehicles, or boats with no calibration, delivering the greatest accuracy while dramatically reducing false alarms.

The Thermal Analytics Processor optimized for FLIR provides 160GB of on-board NVR storage, eliminating the need to stream images across a network to a central NVR and reducing network traffic and bandwidth by up to 90%. By automatically encoding analog video from a FLIR camera into an IP video signal, the Thermal Analytics Processor makes them plug-and-play compatible with existing IP networks, simplifying site infrastructure. The Thermal Analytics Processor supports integration with many VMS systems including Genetec, Milestone, ONSSI, Lenel, and VideoIQ View.
The Thermal Analytics Processor will be available from FLIR on Oct. 1.
