OTTAWA (ON), June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – March Networks®a global leader in video surveillance and video-based business intelligence, is pleased to announce the addition of the ME8 Series IP Cameras to its line of products powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
Incorporating advanced system-on-chip (SoC) technology from Californiabased in Ambarella®, ME8 series IP cameras use deep neural network processing power to accurately detect people and vehicles. This built-in intelligence is combined with next-generation security analytics and 4K Ultra High Definition (HD) resolution for the most detailed video and accurate, real-time event detection. 4K ultra HD (8MP) produces razor-sharp images, with four times the resolution of a standard 2MP camera.
“The addition of the ME8 series cameras aligns with our plan to offer customers a fully AI-enabled product line,” said Net Payne, director of sales and marketing at March Networks. He noted that the company currently also offers AI-enabled 6MP cameras and powerful sound. X Series Hybrid Recorderspurpose-built for tomorrow’s AI applications with NVIDIA® SoC technology. The ME8 series adds to the company’s complete end-to-end solution, which also includes its growth cloud service portfolio.
“Moving customers to the cloud and enabling AI in our product line is our primary focus,” Payne said. “The artificial intelligence models in these cameras enable a level of accuracy in detecting people and vehicles that can help resolve security incidents much faster. With this accuracy, false alarms are significantly reduced.”
ME8 Series AI-powered video analytics enable organizations to improve security in public and private spaces by detecting atypical activity more quickly and consistently. With this built-in video intelligence, customers can quickly respond to incidents such as building or area intrusions, dropping suspicious objects, wandering, and perimeter violations by people and vehicles.
When combined with March Networks Searchlight™ data analysis software, the cameras can also intelligently capture information about non-security events such as curbside deliveries. Using analytics of vehicles stopped by the cameras, for example, restaurants can track the number of mobile deliveries at different times of the day to analyze trends and improve speed of service. Big-box retailers and grocers, meanwhile, can oversee all of their curbside deliveries, investigate any disputes, and uncover trends to improve service.
Organizations can choose from two distinct ME8 Series models, both of which are fully compliant with the US National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Models include:
• The ME8 IR Domean indoor/outdoor dome camera with a 3.6-11mm motorized P-Iris lens
• The ME8 IR DuraBulleta bullet camera specially designed for outdoor use and also equipped with a motorized P-Iris lens from 3.6 to 11 mm
Both ME8 Series models have built-in IR LEDs that can illuminate objects in the dark over 131 feet (40 meters). Both are also protected by weather-resistant (IP66) and vandal-resistant (IK10) housings to ensure optimum performance in all climates.
