Advantech Collaborates with GeoVision to Accelerate Surveillance Deployments


November 23, 2016, Taipei - Advantech, a global leader in the embedded system market, announced its collaboration with GeoVision, a leading video surveillance solution company, on the ARK-V and ARK-S series, to reduce integration effort and accelerate time-to-market for customers implementing in-vehicle and outdoor surveillance projects.

Accelerating Deployment of In-Vehicle and Outdoor Surveillance

In-vehicle and outdoor surveillance is growing, particularly in the transportation and governmental sectors. Key elements in surveillance projects can range from simple NVR with cameras and video management software, to more advanced systems that incorporate analytics and video back-up solutions. Projects usually require complex integration of many hardware peripherals and software, and customers find it challenging, especially when faced with compatibility issues.

Advantech and GeoVision have validated the compatibility of GeoVision’s GV-VMS video management software and IP cameras on Advantech ARK-V and ARK-S series hardware. GV-VMS performs valuable video functions such as live view, recording and playback both from local and remote sites, two-way audio communication, centralized camera management, and supplies an active tampering alarm as well. Customers can now deploy surveillance projects more efficiently with a hardware platform that is ready for GV-VMS and IP cameras.

In addition, as part of its collaboration, GeoVision also provides video analytics functions which include, among others, license plate recognition, people counting, video stabilization, and video defog; these options help customers improve daily operation efficiency and optimize video surveillance capabilities. For large scale monitoring demands, GeoVision also presents central monitoring solutions that can connect thousands of cameras from numerous locations. Furthermore, GeoVision’s GV-Backup Center, a software platform that can automatically back up video and audio recordings, is also available for those customers looking for reliable backup solutions critical for in-vehicle surveillance.

Saving Time and Money, and Facilitating Cloud Connection

ARK-V and ARK-S series acquires data from various environmental and vehicle health sensors via a variety of interfaces such as: PoE interfaces, serial, Ethernet, digital I/O, CANBus, OBD-II, or J1939 protocols. The collaboration with GeoVision broadens the series offering to include video management capabilities. Customers shorten their development times, reduce development resources, and save time, money, and reduce their times-to-revenue.

Additionally, in order to realize the value of IoT for surveillance, the ARK-V and ARK-S series is pre-integrated with Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/RMM, an integrated IoT platform software service for remote management, system security, and pre-configured cloud services that mitigate development effort and empower IoT solutions.
