Samsung Techwin America, Ridgefield Park, N.J., introduced its Open Platform feature at this year’s ASIS show, making it possible for third-party companies using standardized APIs to develop applications and install them on Samsung’s WiseNet III cameras. This gives users the freedom to deploy their ideal combination of edge applications including video analytics, advanced features and video management software to match their individual requirements, further enhancing the already feature-rich cameras, Samsung described.

“Samsung’s open platform camera technology provides a launch pad for the development of innovative video surveillance and security systems that can be applied to a wide variety of market segments,” said Tom Cook, vice president, sales, Samsung Techwin America. “Our ongoing objective is to meet customers’ needs by continuing to push the boundaries of traditional video surveillance.”

The cameras’ open platform framework allows end users to install any one of a number of applications that provide advanced functions including cloud connectivity, video direct to storage, people counting, intrusion detection, queue management, license plate recognition, face capture and recognition, transit and cargo recognition. Companies that already have written applications for Samsung’s Open Platform include PlateSmart for LPR, Agent VI for video analytics, and Verocity for direct-to-storage video transfer from the camera.
