SHENZHEN, CHINA, RESTON, USA & TAIPEI, TAIWAN: ObjectVideo, the leader in intelligent video, announced the completion of an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnership agreement with AVTECH Corp., a leading supplier in the IP device, software, mobile surveillance software (EagleEyes) and CCTV market.
AVTECH will incorporate ObjectVideo OnBoard intelligent analytics software into a wide variety of products, with the first being an Intel PC-based offering of the OV Analytics Service running within AVTECH's HyDra Professional CMS software.
"ObjectVideo is very pleased to be working so closely with AVTECH to make their upcoming product offerings ObjectVideo-enabled," said Raul Fernandez, CEO for ObjectVideo. "Mass market demand for reliable analytics is growing rapidly, so this relationship with AVTECH allows the two companies' combined technology innovations to be brought to market."
AVTECH will be incorporating patented ObjectVideo analytics into several new products built on the HyDRA platform, including the AVH-100 -- the first HyDRA product in AVTECH's line of network video recorders (NVRs.) The HyDRA platform is designed and developed by AVTECH for versatile IP surveillance, such as production line management, office access control, etc. With ObjectVideo analytics, this platform will be more powerful and intelligent, making it suitable for a wider range of business and personal applications.
"AVTECH sells many DVR, NVR, IP camera and CCTV camera products in the market today, and ObjectVideo provided the most ways in which we could incorporate their [intelligent video surveillance] technology into those products in an efficient manner," said Chap Tien, CEO of AVTECH. "We will even be able to offer OV to our customers as a part of a PC-based video management solution."
This type of partnership is made possible by ObjectVideo's multi-platform availability as a patented software ingredient, which enables partners like AVTECH to benefit from the expanded architecture flexibility and device options that are making it significantly easier to embed analytics throughout the video ecosystem.
