The security industry is to receive a bright lining up ahead with the launch of Alibaba Cloud IoT’s video service Link Vision 1.0, including the IoT video open platform and the Internet of Things video AI solution. The security industry, which started out with the traditional mold of security cameras, has steered in a new direction by unlocking the potential of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Reportedly, the Link Vision 1.0 is slated for its official release by the end of August.
With urbanization on the rise like never before leading to a huge demand for safety in fields as diverse as road, finance, education etc, the security industry is anticipated to record an unprecedented growth rate of 10%, following a total output value of 800 billion yuan in 2020. Given this conjecture, the advancement of digitization and intelligence in enterprises has to be revved up in order to meet the security threshold.
The current scenario of the consumer security market is still hinged on traditional camera products, along with the head players tinkered with certain R&D. The small and middle scale enterprises are still locked in outdated P2P business models with a single profit model, with the users still availing the mobile APP. Furthermore, many traditional home cameras only store video on the local SD card, leaving the real-time security and alarm still a half attended matter.
But now, the Alibaba Cloud Link Vision IoT open platform can be roped in for all such SMEs that are not technologically adaptive, enabling them to smoothly incorporate “hardware + software + service” model. Not only this, the camera cloud access management that can be accessed by the enterprises from now for greater efficiency over the old P2P model.
The security monitoring systems will also benefit from this breakthrough by accessing global visual objects and security events, well-timed warning and proper follow-up as opposed to the traditional modes that kept them off the complex video AI structured analysis necessary for advanced security, tracking, search and control.
Alibaba’s Cloud Link Vision IoT Video AI solution fits the bill of the required security solution with its network access of up to 128 local industrial-grade web cameras, as touted, enabling the enterprises to extract high-quality video AI structured data and upload it to cloud storage to easily realize global visual objects.
Alibaba Cloud IoT stands for the concept of “ubiquitous computing” as a necessary prerequisite, and as backed by this media edge server, this calculation can be coordinated on 3 sides of the cloud side.
Released just yesterday, Alibaba Cloud Link Vision is expected to catapult security engineering into new heights of digital transformation, by opening up the cloud edge integration capability in the video business field for real-time and huge data-processing by the security industry.
