960 639 Stuart O'Brien

Motorola Solutions has announced the newest addition to its video security and analytics portfolio, the Artificial Intelligence Network Video Recorder (AI NVR).

The AI NVR combines the traditional Avigilon NVR with the capabilities of the Avigilon AI Appliance to provide enterprises with a solution that fulfills their analytic, storage and cyber security needs. The solution is cloud-connected, enabling remote management through Avigilon Cloud Services so that users can easily perform software upgrades and download new applications. 

“The AI NVR is a game changer when it comes to helping enterprises achieve their security goals. We are providing a cost-effective option that enables our customers to become more efficient in their security efforts, resulting in a safer environment” said John Kedzierski, senior vice president, Video Security & Analytics at Motorola Solutions. “By combining analytics and the cloud in an appliance that is easy to deploy and manage, security operators are able to make better informed decisions while streamlining their system management operations”.

Rather than replacing an entire video security set up, users can now connect their existing camera system with the AI NVR to gain access to the Avigilon advanced analytics. This includes Avigilon Appearance Search™ Technology and Object Detection and Classification, as well as No Face Mask Detection and Occupancy Counting from the COVID-19 insights suite. 

The AI NVR is a comprehensive solution, enabling users to adopt the power of Avigilon’s neural network-based analytics while running on a hardened operating system that can be managed remotely. The AI NVR is now available for order.

Motorola splashes $445m on AI video analysis specialist

VaaS International Holdings (VaaS) has been acquired by Motorola Solutions for $445 million.

The deal, which includes a combination of cash and equity, will see VaaS, a ‘video analysis as a service’ provider, provide Motorola with global data image analytics resource for vehicle location.

VaaS’s image capture and analysis platform, which includes fixed and mobile license plate reader cameras driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence, provides vehicle location data to public safety and commercial customers.

Its subsidiaries include Vigilant Solutions for law enforcement users and Digital Recognition Network (DRN) for commercial customers. The company’s 2019 revenues are expected to be approximately $100 million.

Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions, said: “Automated license plate recognition is an increasingly powerful tool for law enforcement.

“VaaS will expand our command centre software portfolio with the largest shareable database of vehicle location information that can help shorten response times and improve the speed and accuracy of investigations.”

VaaS’s platform also enables controllable, audited data-sharing across multiple law enforcement agencies. Vehicle location information can help accelerate time to resolution and improve outcomes for public safety agencies, particularly when combined with police records. For example, law enforcement has used VaaS’ solutions to quickly apprehend dangerous suspects and find missing persons.

“We are very excited to be joining Motorola Solutions,” said Shawn Smith, co-founder of VaaS and president of Vigilant Solutions.

“This acquisition enables us to continue to serve our existing customers and expand our footprint globally, while at the same time supporting a company with a commitment to innovation and growth, guided by a common purpose that aligns with our mission and culture: ‘To help people be their best in the moments that matter.’ It doesn’t get any better than that.”
