Vergence Technologies believes traditional video surveillance tools, processes and workflows are antiquated. Without leveraging maps and external data, traditional surveillance does not provide a holistic view, leaving the user with lower situational awareness. The proliferation of video cameras compounds this problem by producing thousands of hours and petabytes of "dumb video" that is not easy to use or search. Additionally the trend of moving storage and computation to the cloud makes expensive on-site equipment obsolete and insecure.
