IVA+™ Licensing

The MEGApix® IVA/IVA+™ camera line feature an intelligent analytic engine that allows users to:

  • Detect and classify people and vehicles in real-time
  • Automatically analyze video to detect and determine events
  • Use zones and virtual tripwires with multiple trigger points allowing for a greater event detection level, while reducing unwanted false alarms and false-positives
  • Use logical rules to allow multiple detection inputs to be linked together to provide deeper event filtering

While MEGApix® IVA™ cameras come preloaded with a base IVA™ license, users can acquire and apply an IVA+™ license to the camera to upgrade to advanced IVA+™ analytic capabilities.

This article will outline the difference between IVA™ and IVA+™, how to purchase an IVA+™ license, and where to apply the license to activate it on the camera.

**NOTE:  It is recommended that users have an active myDW account to purchase and manage IVA/IVA+™ licenses.

**NOTE:  You can delete an IVA+™ license from an IVA™ camera to use it on a different IVA™ camera, but cannot be used on two different IVA™ cameras simultaneously.  The IVA+™ license cannot be deleted if it is in use and must be deactivated before deletion.

Supported/Affected Devices:

  • MEGApix® IVA/IVA+™ Camera Series

Analytic Options

The MEGApix® IVA™ and MEGApix® IVA+™ models feature analytic features that can be used to detect when people cross into a designated area, keep count of how many times a drawn line is crossed, and more.

It is worth knowing the difference between the IVA™ and IVA+™ options.  Cameras can be purchased pre-loaded with options of either IVA™ or IVA+™. 

The difference between the two options has to do with the types of analytic events that can be used.

See the table below for the difference between IVA™ and IVA+™.
