The plug-in was realized through Canon’s ongoing development of VCA, which makes possible the analyzing and application of data from video captured by network cameras to realize benefits in such fields as marketing and service.
Four detection functions offered by multi-person tracking technology
The use of network cameras is not limited to applications targeting crime prevention, as they are also expected to contribute to enhancing marketing and service processes. In addition to the use of network camera video data to realize high levels of safety and security, Canon is working to develop VCA for applications in the field of marketing.
