SAN JOSE, Cali  — Video analytics provider Vintra has announced an integration with IP security solutions firm Genetec Inc.

Vintra says Genetec customers can now take advantage of FulcrumAI, Vintra’s deep learning video analytics solution integrated with Genetec Security Center to deliver what the firm calls real-time, total-environment intelligence from any camera source, fixed or mobile.

Vintra goes on to say it has built its proprietary deep learning-powered video analytic solution, FulcrumAI, from the ground up, and has optimized its machine learning models to take advantage of the latest GPU hardware and acceleration techniques. The firm’s solution can now be deployed to augment the majority of enterprise-grade security, safety, and productivity needs and scenarios.

Vintra explains further that FulcrumAI is now available as an SDK integration with Security Center, and that FulcrumAI gives organizations the capability of analyzing large amounts of video data streaming from fixed and mobile cameras, integrated directly into the Genetec Security Center platform.

According to Vintra, users can now create and activate both real-time rules for objects and face recognition-powered block lists from a tab within the Genetec software. Alarms and alerts generated by real-time rules are received in Security Desk’s Alarm Monitoring task. They are handled, identically, alongside any other alarms received by the system. Users can search video from fixed cameras, PTZs, body cameras, drones, dash cameras and mobile phones. Additionally, users can search for and set alarms on a list of descriptive attributes of objects such as people and vehicles, and within specific camera zones of interest. Relevant detections can be saved for investigative case reporting purposes.

“The integration of Vintra’s FulcrumAI with Security Center can help prevent potentially harmful events from unfolding and know exactly where those might occur, delivering fast and accurate results as well as timely situational awareness,” said Jordan Jaumeau, director of Development Partnerships at Genetec, in a prepared statement. “The integration leverages Genetec Security Center UI, allowing Security Center operators to gather intelligence and make decisions using their familiar Genetec environment.”

“We’re excited to be working with Genetec to bring deep learning, neural network-based analytics that provide proactive prevention, increased situational awareness and post-event video forensics to our enterprise, public safety and transport customers,” said Patrick Vermont, director of Product at Vintra, also in a statement.  “The exciting integration of FulcrumAI and Security Center means measurably better security outcomes, a reduction in operational costs and an increase in employee productivity for forward-looking organizations that are operationalizing AI today.”
