The Event Intelligence Group (EIG) provides services for live events. EIG gathers relevant data from on-site resources, such as high-definition security cameras (HD CCTV), and relays information into an events communication center in real-time. This enables risk managers and event authorities to identify and resolve possible issues before they escalate. Video analytics can count people, perform facial recognition, recognize license plates, and track crowd density. EIG also conducts location-based monitoring of social media, GPS services and communication solutions.
