Hitachi Visualization Suite 4.5: Newly Enhanced With Predictive Crime Analytics
Hitachi Visualization Suite (HVS) is a hybrid cloud-based platform that integrates disparate data and video assets from public safety systems—911 computer-aided dispatch, license plate readers, gunshot sensors, and so on—in real time and presents them geospatially. HVS provides law enforcement with critical insight to improve intelligence, enhance investigative capabilities and increase operational efficiencies. Along with capturing real-time event data from sensors, HVS now offers the ability to provide geospatial visualizations for historical crime data in several forms, including heat maps. This feature is available in the Hitachi Visualization Predictive Crime Analytics (PCA) add-on module of the new Hitachi Visualization Suite 4.5 software release.
Hitachi Video Management Platform: Comprehensive Management for All Your Video Data
The new Video Management Platform (VMP) is an appliance-based solution that offers rich data integration, management and visualization for video applications powered by VMware software. Using Hitachi-supported hardware and designed to deliver a set-it-and-forget-it user experience, VMP provides a turnkey, end-to-end video management solution that is both highly scalable and redundant, separating storage from compute to give users on-demand access to and rapid deployment of video assets. VMP supports every major video management software supplier to simplify storage and compute of all types of video data.
“Our initial Hitachi Visualization release was designed to give law enforcement, emergency management and other security organizations greater situational awareness and the capacity to more effectively and efficiently extract insights from a broader range of data sources to ensure faster response times when a situation developed,” said Mark Jules, vice president, Public Safety and Data Visualization, Hitachi Data Systems.
Public safety and the protection of people, property and infrastructure is a foundation of smart cities and societies,” adds Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, director of global smart cities research at IDC. “Digital technologies, like those from Hitachi Data Systems, that provide real-time, aggregate and contextual data, support public safety initiatives that can transform how law enforcement and other first responder agencies locate, mitigate and prevent crimes, and ultimately make our cities safer places.”
Hitachi Visualization is part of the Hitachi Social Innovation solutions that support smart city programs.
Hitachi Visualization Suite 4.5 with Predictive Crime Analytics, and Hitachi Video Management Platform are exclusively obtainable.
