Live Video Analytics Preview
Build intelligent video-based applications using the AI of your choice
Capture, record and analyse live videos
Live Video Analytics is a platform for building AI-based video solutions and applications. You can generate real-time business insights from video streams, processing data near the source and applying the AI of your choice. Record videos of interest on the edge or in the cloud and combine them with other data to power your business decisions.
Run at the edge
Deploy live video analytics on edge appliances to process live video near the source, minimising latency and bandwidth
Use real-time analytics
Analyse live video and generate analytics in real time to enable faster business decisions
Reduce cost by only saving the video relevant to your business and processing video at the edge instead of the cloud
Plug in analytics
Integrate AI from Microsoft, the open-source community, or your data scientists to fit your business scenarios
Available as IoT Edge module
Process and analyse video in your environment and on the edge appliance of your choice with Azure IoT Edge to reduce latency and elegantly handle intermittent cloud connectivity. In case of interruption, Live Video Analytics automatically syncs the latest state of your video workload when connectivity resumes.See how to use Azure IoT Edge Learn more about Azure Stack Edge
Build intelligent applications
Build applications that combine video analytics with other real-time business data to take fast business actions, and create solutions with custom video workflows to drive business outcomes. Design apps that span the edge and the cloud to leverage edge processing for low latency.
Flexible, simplified development
Focus development efforts on the business outcome rather than setting up and operating a complex, live video pipeline. Developers can leverage their existing skillsets and build apps in the programming language of their choice.See the APIs
