Canon Singapore has launched innoVI, an AI-driven, cloud-based video analytics service for its enterprise customers. This service is offered in partnership with Agent Video Intelligence, a global provider of video analytics solutions.

This collaboration will allow Canon Singapore’s enterprise customers to make use of innoVi with their existing surveillance cameras. These customers can choose to make use of the platform’s AI-based video analytics for a monthly subscription fee. This Software as a Service (SaaS) distribution model will allow these customers to save on any upfront investments for their video analytics business requirements.

innoVi is centrally managed and its algorithms are improved constantly so that its video analytics performance is accurate and reliable. The platform is able to work with most fixed IP cameras and make use of their video feeds for its analytics work. innoVi is also fully automated and does away with the need for any human intervention for its operation. As a result, customers can save on the hiring of dedicated security personnel for monitoring video feeds and recordings.

Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore, said,

We are always looking for ways to help our customers improve and streamline their processes, and are delighted that this partnership with Agent Vi enables us to be the first to introduce cloud-based video analytics to Singapore. Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative encourages businesses to harness the power of AI, data analytics and cloud computing as transformative business tools, and this offering cements our commitment to helping companies as they move forward in these areas.

According to Canon and Agent Vi, the platform is easy to install and requires little maintenance, making this SaaS distribution model ideal for hotels, private estates, and healthcare facilities. The monthly subscription fee starts from only S$137, with no upfront fees.
