Net4, a UK-based technology service provider, this week launched its Net4.Vision platform, billed as a scalable and flexible video analytics solution with advanced security features, powered by AWS Wavelength services.
The Net4.Vision platform is available immediately on AWS Wavelength, enabling video analytics as a service on any 5G network where AWS Wavelength zones have been enabled. Built upon SeeWare, the physical recognition platform from SeeChange, the software enables a wide variety of analytic models to be deployed across a wide range of industries and uses cases.
As part of the product launch, Net4 and SeeChange have joined forces to deliver smart building and health and safety solutions as initial customer propositions. An official announcement reckoned the value of each segment, as stated by the partners:
- Smart Buildings: In the last few years the way our buildings and workplaces are used has changed. It is important for businesses and building owners to understand the changing use of workspaces. Net4's smart building solution provides detailed insights into workplace utilisation, driving optimisation and more efficient building usage.
- Health & Safety: Alongside this, Net4 has made available its health & safety solution that focuses on increasing safety in the workplace. Accidents in the workplace not only cost money and impact operations but they also affect staff, visitors, and customers alike. The Net4 solution automatically monitors key areas for hazards such as spillages and obstructions, providing alerts and improving safety management.
The company says its Net4.Vision platform can be used with both new and existing video cameras, extending the life and increasing the value provided by an organization's existing cameras.
AWS Wavelength zones are already available in UK, Germany, USA, South Korea, and Japan. Net4 is inviting interested channel partners and customers to get in touch with the company "to find out how Net4.Vision can help improve their operations."
Alex Taylor, Net4's CEO commented, "We are excited that Net4.Vision is now available to our customers. It is powered by AWS Wavelength and uses the 5G network, enabling our customers to reduce the cost of ownership of video analytics solutions whilst simultaneously enabling a scale-on-demand capability."
