BriefCam announced future availability for BriefCam video content analytics on Axis cameras with built-in deep learning processing units. BriefCam’s edge analytics initiative complements its portfolio of on-premise and cloud solutions, by enabling greater freedom of choice for flexible deployment architectures through edge-based computing.

Through the Axis application development partner program, BriefCam leverages the AXIS camera application platform (ACAP) to enable comprehensive analytics directly on Axis Communications’ upgraded camera series. The first camera to support BriefCam video content analytics is the AXIS Q1615 Mk III featuring a dual chipset, ARTPEC-7, and a deep-learning processing unit (DLPU), for video processing and metadata generation at the edge.

By enabling BriefCam analytics on the edge, along with post-processing and management capabilities, users experience real-time processing, with reduced costs and complexity, as well as reduced storage and bandwidth requirements, enabling greater flexibility and cost efficiency for large-scale deployments.

“Axis is proud to forge a deeper technology partnership with BriefCam toward our shared vision for advancing best-in-class video surveillance technologies,” said Mats Thulin, director of core technology, Axis Communications AB. “Comprehensive video analytics is a key component to further optimizing surveillance camera investments and enabling new and expanded use cases for video — by deploying analytics at the edge, users have greater flexibility in how they implement and utilize video analytics.”
