WiZR and Wind River have collaborated to offer AI-enabled video surveillance and analytics on the Wind River Titanium Cloud virtualization platform. Titanium Cloud is a commercial-ready, NFV infrastructure software platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with the high reliability that industries demand. WiZR has validated and pre integrated their solution as part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem program to ensure companies can securely manage their camera streams and analytics on a stable NFV.
WiZR enables proactive security and business intelligence with industry-leading AI, video and IoT integration. With all the functionality you would expect from a standard Video Management System, WiZR moves beyond forensic video with a comprehensive incident management and dispatch system that provides real-time, AI-enabled security coverage to prevent crimes before they occur. Advanced analytics, such as traffic metrics and facial recognition, can be combined for insights to optimize staffing, quantify advertising exposure and more. WiZR’s scalable architecture can be fully virtualized and extends to 4G and 5G integrated with Titanium Cloud. Customers can ensure their cameras and sensors run with optimal stability and security through the prevalidated WiZR and Wind River solution.
“Wind River is an established leader in secure operating platforms and trusted by some of the largest companies and governments worldwide.
