Hitachi Review

Highlight

To flexibly adapt to the growing and changing risks to public infrastructure and companies posed by threats such as terrorism in the lead-up to an international sports event to be held in Tokyo in 2020 and threats to food safety from contamination, organizations from throughout the Hitachi Group are currently making a collaborative effort to create a platform for physical security. The platform will be created around a core of functions that integrate multiple security systems such as video surveillance and access control systems. It will enable various physical security solutions, providing features such as system scalability, video analysis functions tailored to specific applications, and cloud system support. However, its applications will not be limited to just ensuring safety and security. In readiness for the IoT era, it will also enable active use as a platform for providing video analysis data and various other types of data to systems such as big data analysis systems, and production control systems in plants. These applications will extend the platform’s physical security uses to customer business improvements such as optimizing operations in companies.
