New Video Analytics Technlogy for Business and Security

case arial, try sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>A new video analytics technology for both security and business, the sMart Data Warehouse, was showcased by Netavis Software at the Security Essen 2016 fair for security and fire prevention in Germany. The new IP platform contextualises security and business data to provide user-specifically tailored information for each user and the tasks at hand.

“Our vast experience with IP video and seamlessly integrated video analytics shows that video analytics data is truly valuable only when combined with business and other relevant data and individually processed for each user. With sMart Data Warehouse, the NETAVIS platform for security and business is now complete, and we are in a position to generate real added value with IP video for our customers,” said Wolfgang Baumgartner, CEO of NETAVIS Software.

The professional data warehouse technology and elaborate interfaces facilitate the integration of video meta data, sales and revenue figures, weather information and much more. For business analysts, sMart offers versatile options to analyse and compare all available data in detail. In addition, it serves as information source for big data applications.

NETAVIS sMart Data Warehouse is immediately available to be hosted on the customers’ IT infrastructure as software. Ingram Micro offers NETAVIS sMart Data Warehouse pre-installed on professional IVS Supermicro servers as sMart Appliance. Alternatively, a cloud solution of sMart Data Warehouse is provided. Both deployment options are already implemented successfully in pilot projects.

According to, the official product launch includes not only NETAVIS Video Analytics modules but also a light sensor from NOVATEC as well as 3D sensors from XOVIS and VIVOTEK.

Compared to the decades of predominance of closed, analogue CCTV systems, the last 20 years have been marked by a rapid digital evolution of video surveillance. After an initially hesitant conversion to IP based solutions, physical security has long since moved into the IT departments. Furthermore, the increased deployment of video analytics radically improved the quality of video surveillance.

By now, video analytics also collects business data which vastly exceeds classical security topics and can generate important business value. In-Store-Analytics is becoming a standard application of video surveillance in retail, and also other industries are frequently using IP video for counting, classification, and more.

The new sMart Data Warehouse technology joins the company’s open video management platform Observer and the product iCAT.
