Extra-large capacity is not just a demonstration of the technology, but a necessity dictated by the transition to cameras with ever higher shooting resolutions. The latest generation of AllFrame AI technology supports the simultaneous connection of 64 cameras with a total workload of up to 180 TB per year. Also, it is possible to access already recorded data without interrupting the system operation for processing the received data in real time. As a result, video systems based on artificial intelligence will be able to find individuals, create traffic jam maps and analyze other important events.
