SDN offers a hybrid cloud-based AI platform, to transform the way businesses connect, extract, and share video footage
Since our inception in 2018, we have sold approximately 10,000 units and generated $350,000 in revenue. We have partnership agreements in more than half a dozen countries, and our clients include names like DP World Fleets, Emirates Transport, Abu Dhabi School Police, and MSC.
The video surveillance industry market is projected to be worth $4.1 billion in the MENA region alone. With 180 million surveillance cameras having been shipped in 2019 alone, but 94% of clients having not developed AI and Deep learning analytics, we believe there is a specialized area in the market for SDN.
Problem or Opportunity
Clients (retail, schools/universities, gated communities, corps, facilities, enterprises, etc.) struggle to link multiple business sites and manage all surveillance cameras from any place at any time. • Complicated & costly network configurations, remote access to DVR/NVR is almost impossible, NVR/DVR cannot support multiple sites, use of encrypted standards, software is from the 1990s, etc. It is hard to search and filter through zettabytes of video data from thousands of cameras for business use. • No mechanism to search through huge amounts of video footage and extract intelligent data insights Limited ability to share video data and valuable information seamlessly between individuals & entities • Nonexistent platform for account access privileges, all data is stored locally and not accessible remotely, etc.
Solution (product or service)
CONNECT Allow real-time access to any surveillance camera remotely Link and manage multiple business sites and video footage from one online, cloud-based platform Connect all sites with highest security standards in mind • EXTRACT Provide a unique way to present and visualize video footage history from multiple cameras under one platform Search and filter through huge amounts of video data and extract insights Analyze video footage using the SDN AI engine (facial recognition, customer classification, heat maps, movement analysis, camera timeline, object detection, etc.) to enhance business efficiency and performance • SHARE Provide clients and key players with intelligent insights and in-depth analytics extracted from video footage Allow all business departments (HR, sales, marketing, etc.) to access and gain benefits from the extracted data (number of unique customers, areas with highest traffic, repeat customers and purchasing history, customer demographics, employee productivity rates, etc.) Enable all business departments to track and monitor their own specialized activities and operations at all times
Key players are all located in North America, like Verkada, Rhombus Systems, Cisco Meraki, Lytx and Samsara but they uncompetitively priced in the MENA region
