Linius CEO in Forbes: The role of virtual video in security and defense

In his latest Forbes article – titled Defense, Intelligence And The Role of Video In Counterterrorism – Linius CEO, Chris Richardson, explores the changing role of video in intelligence operations.

Richardson argues that, while video is undoubtedly playing an increasingly important role in informing security and law enforcement agencies – at home and abroad, cumbersome analysis techniques and mushrooming video volumes are barriers to timely action.

Richardson goes on to say that manual footage interpretation and compilation processes, currently required to enable analysts and decision-makers to derive meaningful insights, meant that “reacting to events, rather than preventing them, is often the only possible course of action.”

Richardson says that applying video virtualization technology, with proven artificial intelligence capabilities, could empower “law enforcement and intelligence agencies to programmatically search across, and splice together, multiple video surveillance streams from disparate sources (such as drones, security cameras and archives).

“The upshot? The ability to systematically deliver the actionable intelligence needed to identify and mitigate threats in near real-time.”

About Linius Technologies Limited:

Linius Technologies Limited (ASX: LNU) has invented and patented the Video Virtualization Engine™ (VVE), which is available on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud.

Amazon, Microsoft and IBM are investing billions in virtualizing ‘video services’ (technologies) and Artificial Intelligence in the cloud. It is arguably the biggest battle on the internet, given that video accounts for nearly 80 percent of internet traffic.

Only Linius can expose the data that makes up the video file, making cumbersome video as flexible as all other forms of data. Accessing the data within the video file is the missing link for video cloud service providers, creating unparalleled value across the internet video industry.

Linius’ VVE-powered Video Hyper-Personalization and Search Solution enables anyone to instantly search the data within video, from across an infinite number of sources, and automatically assemble the results in a single stream on-the-fly. No human hands required.

Linius is revolutionizing the way organizations and individuals across the globe produce, deliver and consume video, enabling previously impossible hyper-personalized video experiences.

It’s a breakthrough set to disrupt entire multi-billion-dollar industries.
