Uncanny Vision’s surveillance AI technology is used for various applications such as smart parking, retail analytics, gate security, toll automation, smart cities, ATM monitoring, worker safety and perimeter security.
Following this acquisition, Eagle Eye Networks has doubled the size of its sales staff with the aim of building a sales organisation with exceptional technical knowledge, vertical experience, and deep expertise in the local market.
Besides the sales, the company is also expanding its India engineering team as part of its broader goal to increase innovation, development velocity, and the breadth of applications supported. The team will focus on product development, research and design as well as data science and machine learning.
“India has a fast growing economy; its businesses see the benefits of cloud video surveillance leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to improve operations and security,” said Dean Drako, CEO – Eagle Eye Networks CEO.
“Backed by a global organisation, the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS (video management system) is the perfect match for India’s cities, educational institutions and growing businesses, providing an open, flexible and powerful system that will meet their current and future needs,” added Drako.
