Working Smarter With a Smart Video Intelligence System

bridge toll booth

The tollbooth for the bridge was quickly approaching and I found myself frantically searching in my glove box for the electronic transponder that would allow me to pass without having to stop and pay. Where was it? Not in the top glove box. Not in the lower glove box either. I didn’t have time to stop and clean out my car, nor did I want to pull over to search for it. It would take too much time – time I needed to do other, more important things. If only I had a tool that would make it jump out at me, like a giant magnet to find the "needle in the haystack."

10 ways to climb sales mountain base camp

Lesson #2: Establish your base camp

Any mountain climber knows the importance of establishing a good base camp to support an expedition up an imposing mountain…in your case a sales mountain. We are not talking about a simple one day rock climb with a 1,000’ of vertical ascent. We are talking about those 21,000’ peaks that require some real planning and effort! Why is this so important?

QuickClip: Advanced Object Tracking Analytic

Most DVRs, NVRs, and VMS use basic motion detection to send alerts or to create an event that makes it easier to search for a suspect in low-traffic areas. 3VR’s Advanced Object Tracking analytic takes motion detection to the next level. In this video, as part of 3VR’s QuickClip series, we show you how you can use the analytic with forensic search to find the color and direction of a suspect car. The analytic can also be used to search by size, shape, and speed and can also be set up as an alert. This makes it easier to find a suspect or, in the case of the video above, a suspect car. Basic motion detection on a busy street is impractical, so a search must be done manually, meaning, the alternative is to search through hours and hours of video. In the QuickClip video above, a busy street is no problem for 3VR's Advanced Object Tracking analytic when trying to find a suspect car in a matter of minutes.

What a show! 2013 was the first year 3VR attended Retail’s BIG show and we were floored by the caliber of speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and attendees. Over 27,000 people attended the show and the energy was palpable. Below are a few highlights:

1. Technology Abounds

Retail technologists from all over the globe were showing off their goods, and attendees were more than interested in a look at new, innovative products. From CRM tools to warehousing equipment, the products ran the gamut, and 3VR was glad to take our part in pushing the mold with our video solution. As one of only a handful of companies showcasing video intelligence, 3VR’s booth was packed with people interested in hearing our story. The difference between our technology and that of our competition was clear--but we’ll save that for another blog!

How 3VR Can Come to the NFL's Rescue

Colin Kaepernick 49ers

Our beloved San Francisco 49ers traveled to the East coast, overcame a 17-point deficit against the Atlanta Falcons, and secured a spot in Superbowl XLVII! I just love football; I’ve been to countless NFL games and I’ve had season tickets for my alma mater (Cal Golden Bears of UC Berkeley) for 10 years. Here in the U.S., professional football becomes more popular each year. Costs for TV commercials during games are at an all-time high, player salaries are ridiculous, and the former head coach for Cal was listed as the highest paid state employee in California. But actual game attendance is decreasing. WHY? And can 3VR come to the rescue?

The Age of Intelligent Connectivity: 3VR Moves One Step Farther in 2013

3VR Executive Series Al Shipp An Open World

As another year goes by, I find myself reflecting on the past year while beginning to anticipate what lies ahead this coming year. Throughout my career in technology, I’ve had amazing opportunities to work around some incredible people such as the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs and witnessed how innovation can transform businesses and economies. As an engineer, I have always been fascinated by how a simple idea can grow to change people’s lives. Here in Silicon Valley, the notion of ideas changing the world is part of the fabric and why I live here.

Early in my career, I joined IBM – this was at a time when the IBM Personal Computer had just been announced and was flourishing. We weren’t the first company to build a personal computer, but IBM helped PCs become mainstream. The company, founded in 1911, populated homes and offices throughout the world with its little beige boxes, running on what was then the most powerful 16-bit Intel processor and MS-DOS. I was part of the team that designed the first group of IBM PC printers and it was a rare opportunity for me to manage product development from design to putting the product into the market. It was never just about the bottom line or one-upping competitors. It was, to me, about seeing an idea from concept to design to reality. When you see your products being used by thousands of people, you get a sense of deep satisfaction of having been a part of that creative process of innovation impacting our culture and society.
