Eagle Eye Networks, Uncanny Vision, USA, BangaloreEagle Eye Networks, the global leader in cloud video surveillance, recently announced the acquisition of artificial intelligence leader Uncanny Vision, accelerating the company’s leadership in providing AI and analytics to make customers’ businesses more efficient and the world a safer place. The acquisition also includes research and development capabilities and a new regional office in Bangalore, India.

“After evaluating more than a dozen AI companies, we began working with Uncanny Vision in 2020. It didn’t take long for us to conclude that Uncanny Vision is the clear leader in surveillance AI,” said Dean Drako, Eagle Eye Networks CEO. “Their award-winning AI technology is deployed across thousands of locations, including Fortune 500 customers.”

The deal accelerates Eagle Eye’s plan, announced in November 2020, when Eagle Eye raised funds from venture capital firm Accel to reshape video surveillance dramatically.

Uncanny Vision’s deep learning algorithms enable recognition, identification, and prediction, improving business operations, customer service, and site safety. Uncanny Vision’s AI is used today in multiple applications, including:

· Smart parking

· Retail analytics

· Gate security

· Toll automation

· Smart cities

· ATM monitoring

· Worker safety

· Perimeter security

Drako said, “Uncanny Vision’s tools for training, building, and optimizing models, and its infrastructure for managing and storing training data are superior. This is a key component we’re excited to add to the Eagle Eye Networks platform.”

All 60 Uncanny Vision employees will be retained, and Eagle Eye plans to expand the Bangalore office. Eagle Eye is committed to supporting Uncanny Vision’s current customers. It will continue to build its global infrastructure to provide the very best 24/7 support to its valued customers worldwide.

Uncanny Vision co-founders Ranjith Parakkal and Navaneethan Sundaramoorthy have joined the Eagle Eye leadership team. Parakkal said, “We share the Eagle Eye team’s vision to deliver advanced, cyber secure AI cloud video surveillance offerings that transform video surveillance for businesses around the globe.”

“The economic model of delivering subscription-based AI on a per-camera basis through a global cloud infrastructure will ignite growth for security integrators who are otherwise challenged with how to build a financially stable business,” said Alper Cetingok, Managing Director and Head of the Security & Safety Practice at Raymond James.
