IQinVision and viasys make IQeye cameras smarter

May 2009 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Video analytics run on the camera saves valuable CPU time, improves results.

IQinVision ( has announced the release of a firmware upgrade that enables customers to run the complete suite of viasys video analytics on IQeye’s PRO LINE series megapixel network cameras.

Today, most video analytics software products run on remote servers, not on the security camera. This approach requires high resolution images to be streamed across the network and limits the number of video channels that can be analysed.

“Analytics at the edge allows for a more scalable and affordable video analytics solution by eliminating expensive servers and dramatically reducing bandwidth requirements,” commented Paul Bodell, IQinVision’s chief marketing officer. “It also improves the performance of the analytics by allowing it to work with uncorrupted video.”

Running viasys analytics software for intruder detection, perimeter security, and alarming on IQeye intelligent cameras minimises the amount of video data sent over the network and substantially reduces the amount of processing the server has to handle. It can also be used with on-camera storage and IQrecorder, IQinVision’s 'no-client' camera-based network video recording software, to deliver long-term event recording that requires no network bandwidth.

The CEO of viasys, Hannes Ackfeld said: “Having IQinVision products as the proven base for next generation motion detection will help customers, system integrators, and distributors to have simple, reliable, and affordable analytics installed in minutes.”

The software plug-in has been widely deployed by leading VMS platform developers like Milestone, Genetec and OnSSI.

viasys Edge Analytics runs on all IQeye PRO LINE products and installed IQeye 700 and 800-series cameras and can be field upgraded. Free demo software and license upgrades are available directly from viasys at For further information or purchase inquiries, visit:
