Omdia is a global leading technology research institution. The VSAIS annual report has been published for more than 10 years, and the integration and transformation of the consulting industry is reflected by institutional entities ranging from IMS and IHS Markit to Omdia. The statistics of intelligent security are in line with a new round of industry trends, involving traditional network cameras, Linux-based storage, VMS, video encoders, newly added external storage, and video analytics software sold separately without hardware binding.
Hermit Zhang, the president of Uniview, said:
“We are pleased about Omdia’s predictions and insights on industrial technology trends. In the past eight years (2011-2019), Uniview has become a world-class enterprise at the revenue scale and application technology level, and 90% of our IP cameras are AI cameras with intelligent functions. But at present, artificial intelligence has only replaced the word “artificial”. There’s still a long way to go in intelligent innovation. Taking machine learning as an example, it is mostly focused on people and vehicles, the front-end, back-end, and edge intelligence which are in a very narrow range. In the future, the real machine learning is to enter the whole spectrum and the whole natural state including animal bionics. In terms of organisational structure and innovation trial, Uniview is doing research work 5 to 10 years ahead of time to support a trillion level global AIoT market.”
