DIGITALCOM, a pioneer in the surveillance and security business, has teamed up with Hitachi Vantara, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hitachi Ltd and Milestone Systems, a provider of open platform IP video management software, in a joint effort to contribute towards the country’s goal of digital transformation, Smart Life and Smart Cities.



With Digitalcom acting as the distributor, the three companies will offer the local market a new Smart Cities Video Intelligence Solution for Public Safety, combining Hitachi Video Analytics (HVA) and Hitachi Visualization Suite (HVS) from Hitachi Vantara and Video Management Solution from Milestone Systems. 

The Smart Life Smart City concept is diverse and covers many aspects of living. For the successful implementation of Smart Life, Smart City, a good database is critical. Hitachi Vantara and Milestone provide the database, the analytical capabilities and a full range of security and surveillance features. Combined with the in-depth experience of Digitalcom, the companies provide an intelligent state-of-the-art implementation public safety and an enhanced experience for the digital age. 

Within the solution, Hitachi Video Analytics (HVA) analyses and processes videos from CCTV and video files, allowing the system to learn and investigate from a whole range of events. 

HVA can adjust image resolution, keep notifications up to date for overall operations and has privacy features to blur faces that are not required for disclosure. The platform also offers Live Face Matching (LFM), which compares the faces collected by CCTV with the database of people already registered. This is crucial in security when face recognition is required. 

Finally, Hitachi Visualization Suite (HVS) links video data from CCTV to other layers of data for actionable smart city intelligence. From monitoring water levels to traffic volume, HVS is capable of integrating hundreds of simultaneous events for geospatial visualization. HVS provides a single-screen, map-based view that combines video, operational data, GPS transit and fleet vehicle tracking, building and infrastructure data, social media and other sources. 

“Now more than ever, enterprises, businesses as well as law enforcement, emergency management, and public sector personnel require a comprehensive, end-to-end intelligent platform solution 

 that offers video surveillance and advanced insights. By working together, Hitachi Vantara, Digitalcom and Milestone Systems are delivering technological capabilities that will make Smart City, Smart Life in Thailand a reality,” said Thanavut Changtrakul, head of Hitachi Vantara Sales in Thailand.

Suwich Chitkasemsuk, managing director of Digitalcom, said that the company is the first IP Network Camera manufacturer in Thailand. Our business started from customer care and evolved into distribution of network equipment and servers through our partners. 

“Our IT and Security dealers in Bangkok and provinces nationwide are 1000-strong. Together with Hitachi Vantara and Milestone, we form a partnership to launch an intelligent platform solution that will lead the way to a Smart City.
