Video surveillance has ceased to be something unusual long time ago. In cities, we are observed from almost all sides by video cameras. Surveillance systems are installed not only in shops, offices, warehouses, parking lots, schools, kindergartens and hospitals, but also in apartments, private houses and in the surrounding areas.
Starting from version 3.3, the Eocortex software supports video analytics built into certain models of IP cameras.
The coronavirus pandemic has created new standards of staying in the public places. In many countries of the world, it is required to wear face masks while visiting shopping malls, medical establishments, public transport and other places with a presence of large quantities of people. It is the computer vision that helps the companies and authorities to enforce the new safety procedures.
Eocortex has been changing the world’s video surveillance and integrated safety and security systems market for 11 years. 4000 cameras on one protection key or 5630 connection options – is this a lot or a little? And what about a 20 faces in the frame for recognition? No problem! In the traditional summing-up, we will tell you how we were transforming the market in 2019.

Any company strives to grow and evolve. Some companies are very secretive about their plans and inventions. Others keep blogs reporting their every move. Eocortex may be placed in both categories. On the one hand, our research in the sphere of artificial intelligence is purely a trade secret. On the other hand, the company products are always developed taking into consideration the feedback and the requirements of our partners and users of the software. In this column, we will tell you about something that all of them will see in the nearest future, when the latest update of the Eocortex software is released.
The video surveillance experts have been arguing for a long time – what is better, a video recorder or a video server? We have conducted some research and concluded that the point of view regarding this issue depends exclusively upon the product of the company whose representative participates in the discussion. In order to conclude the argument, we invoked the state-of-the-art technology.
As the old saying goes, “The shoemaker's son always goes barefoot”. Since olden days, it has meant that a professional makes such a unique and sought-after product that nothing is left for own use. Today, in the times of digital copies, even a unique IT product is available to anyone. Thanks to the work of distributors and installers, the Eocortex software, for example, can be installed at any facility anywhere in the world. But do those distributors and installers use Eocortex themselves? We have asked them directly.
Eocortex has developed special software for judicial police services, providing the officers with the personal video surveillance systems. Let's examine this case in more detail.
