Australian operator Telstra has made an equity investment in Gorilla Technology Group, a Taiwan-based provider of video analytics for business intelligence, security, enterprise unified communications, education, broadcast media and entertainment. No details related to the amount of the investment have been released.
Telstra says the Gorilla Technology Group’s software services will enable the Australian operator’s business customers to convert raw video into searchable data and real-time searchable video cataloguing. The retail, security, broadcast and government industries are expected to benefit from Gorilla’s solutions for scheduling and management and its video analytic software in intelligent security and forensics.
Telstra’s equity investment in Gorilla Technology will also allow the company to integrate its software into the Telstra network, and provide Gorilla the opportunity to resell the integrated solution to enterprise and government customers worldwide through Telstra’s international connectivity and data centres. Gorilla Technology Group will also provide storage using Telstra’s Cloud services to its customers worldwide.
Telstra’s cloud and telco infrastructure and Gorilla’s software platforms and applications offer synergies for both companies to leverage in creating new business opportunities globally, the companies said. At the NAB 2015 show in Las Vegas in April, Gorilla will announce the availability of its first line of broadcast video services on Telstra’s cloud infrastructure.
