Telstra Focuses On Video Data And Analytics With Gorilla Investment
Telstra today announced it had made an equity investment in Gorilla, a provider of video big data and analytics technology.
Telstra international president Tim Chen said Gorilla’s software solutions enable the conversion of raw video into searchable data and real-time searchable video cataloguing.
The retail, security, broadcast and government industries could benefit from Gorilla’s scheduling and management, and its video analytic software solutions in intelligent security and forensics.
“Telstra’s equity investment in Gorilla Technology Group will also allow the company to integrate its software into our network, and provide Gorilla the opportunity to resell the integrated solution to enterprise and government customers worldwide through our international connectivity and data centres,” Chen commented.
“Gorilla Technology Group will also provide storage using Telstra’s cloud solutions to its customers worldwide.”
Gorilla CEO Dr Spincer Koh stated Telstra’s cloud and telco infrastructure along with Gorilla’s software platforms and applications will provide leverage for both companies “in creating new business opportunities globally”.
Gorilla will announce the availability of its first line of broadcast video services on Telstra’s cloud infrastructure at the NAB 2015 show in Las Vegas in April.
