NETAVIS Observer Summit 2013 Review
NETAVIS Observer Summit 2013 was a big success. After welcoming all the national and international guests CEO Wolfgang Baumgartner invited founding member, manager and developer of NETAVIS, József Lázár, up on stage to guide through the last 10 years of the IP-video industry and the history of NETAVIS together.
After humoristic details in the companies’ life and interesting moments of the development of NETAVIS Observer, Wolfgang Baumgartner discussed the course of IP Video industry in the upcoming 10 years. The main question will be how metadata derived from leading edge video analytics will lead to automatic real time actions according to the workflow of the end customer processes. Right before the first networking break, Thomas Rehberger, NETAVIS, introduced the latest highlights of Observer 4.4 and lab previews of the upcoming version 4.5 and invited the guests for personal hands on.
Harald Rätzsch, former CTO of Skidata, discussed limitations of current video management and analytics scenarios and showed examples, where video meta data successfully translate to real time actions by Caberra This intelligent workflow engine accelerates and improves proceedings at the end customers side and therefore adds value to existing video surveillance systems. After that, technology partners of NETAVIS Observer Summit 2013 introduced the latest developments in IP video technology and again invited to connect in the technology show and networking breaks.
