Hitachi Vantara has launched Lumada Video Insights to offer intelligence using the internet of things (IoT), video, artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics. The company said that video insights is an integral part of its DataOps strategy.
Lumada Video Insights brings together Hitachi’s video offerings for smart spaces with new technology updates and integrations into Hitachi’s Lumada portfolio. The solution complements and extends the Lumada platform and services ecosystem with expanded AI, computer vision, advanced analytics, data integration and orchestration capabilities to help enterprise and industrial customers accelerate their IoT initiatives and cultivate their own smart spaces and ecosystems.
According to Gartner, “A smart space is a physical or digital environment in which humans and technology-enabled systems interact in increasingly open, connected, coordinated and intelligent ecosystems. Multiple elements — including people, processes, services and things — come together in a smart space to create a more immersive, interactive and automated experience for a target set of personas or industry scenarios.
This trend has been coalescing for some time around elements such as smart cities, digital workplaces, smart homes and connected factories. Gartner believes the market is entering a period of accelerated delivery of robust smart spaces, with technology becoming an integral part of our daily lives, whether as employees, customers, consumers, community members or citizens.
AI-related trends, the expansion of IoT-connected edge devices, the development of digital twins of things and organizations, and the maturing of blockchain offer increasing opportunities to drive more connected, coordinated and intelligent solutions across target environments.
With the capabilities to collect, store, manage and analyze video data, Lumada Video Insights delivers valuable analysis and alerts to help organizations be more effective, efficient and secure.
Advances in computer vision and machine learning have allowed the video to be a rich source of insights that provide operational and customer experience intelligence, and real time-situational awareness and alerts to enable swift, effective and proactive responses to incidents, emergencies and customer issues.
With Lumada Video Insights, customers can gather data insights to improve planning and identify opportunities for cost and waste reductions and factors to improve operational excellence.
Lumada Video Insights strengthens the Lumada portfolio of data-driven applications, which is further supported by Hitachi Vantara’s data integration, orchestration, storage and management offerings to provide end-to-end solutions and business value to customers around the world.
“Smart spaces innovation is a focus area for Hitachi Vantara as we continue to see a demand to use new and diverse sources of data blended with more traditional data to gain rich insights,” said Brad Surak, chief product and strategy officer at Hitachi Vantara.
“With Lumada Video Insights and our focus on DataOps, we are excited to expand our work with public and private organizations to transform how retail, government and transportation use data-driven intelligence to innovate and achieve greater outcomes.”
