About Us

We convert real-time video into useful information.

You can search the entire Web in 50 milliseconds. Why can't you know what’s happening in video without hours of manual review?
That question inspires Camio to enable a new generation of applications that use machines to see and understand the real world.

Camio is the real-time video search and alerting platform that works with all cameras.

Using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Camio recognizes what’s important. So organizations can protect people and profits with 50x efficiency.

We’re empowering the security industry to shift from evidence collection to protective security while radically reducing costs. We’re helping companies better understand their customers and their operations — free from the proprietary lock-in and slow release cycles of systems that can’t grow with your needs.

Leading companies in manufacturing, biotech, retail, real estate, higher education, and finance all choose Camio to power their video surveillance across 35 time zones.
