Bosch Launches the First Fully Open Camera Platform
Bosch has announced the launch of INTEOX, a new camera platform designed to modernize the security and safety industry. The first fully open platform of its kind, INTEOX gives users, system integrators, and application developers unlimited freedom for innovation and customization.
The platform combines Intelligent Video Analytics from Bosch with high performance, a commonly used open OS, and the ability to add software apps securely. It supports latest technologies like neural network based analytics.
INTEOX enables app developers and integration partners to take advantage of its built-in intelligence and capabilities to easily develop unlimited software apps based on a common language. At the same time, system integrators can customize their security solutions to meet specific and changing customer requirements by adding apps and deploy them into cameras.
“As sophisticated sensors with Intelligent Video Analytics built-in as standard, INTEOX cameras can provide valuable data that can be analyzed and used in a wide variety of new and beneficial ways, many of which the industry can only imagine. Bosch supports the platform with the highest levels of data security and privacy protection, and the quality and simplicity that comes with working with Bosch”, said Michael Seiter, senior vice president, responsible for the Bosch Video Systems & Solutions business.
The INTEOX cameras, together with the IoT infrastructure, enable app developers, system integrators, integration partners, and other market players to create customer-specific apps and insert them easily into cameras. “INTEOX will fuel innovation that is beyond the scope of any single company today. The introduction of this open camera platform will accelerate the future growth of the entire security and safety industry,” Seiter said.
