How Video Surveillance Has Transformed Business

on Saturday, 14 July 2012. Posted in Video Surveillance

Video technology for the retail industry is rapidly progressing. Integration of data and advanced video analytics, allows traditional surveillance technology to transform itself into a reliable business enhancement tool. For example, a sports store has reported a 15% increase in sales through analysis of customer behavior captured on surveillance cameras and responding by changing staffing patterns. Retail businesses are demonstrating such examples that show that video analytics can be used to do more than catch the bad guys.
 
The traditional role of retail video surveillance is not going to be significantly impacted. It will continue to function as a preventive tool against shrinkage, a way to track activity at checkout counters and a way to increase store safety while reducing legal claims arising from accidents. However, retailers are adding a layer of analytics to their image capture capabilities.
 
Today's smart digital systems record data that can stay in the store infinitely, get indexed automatically, be automated to isolate events, people or incidents, and thereby reduce time to review. Until recently, only high security facilities had access to this technology. Now, facial recognition software, pattern recognition and event alerts are becoming achievable.
 

IP Video Surveillance Fundamentals Overview

on Tuesday, 28 February 2012. Posted in Video Surveillance

This section provides an overview of why video surveillance deployments are migrating from analog-based systems to IP-based systems. The time between 2007 and 2010 represents a market transition in the industry where sales of IP-based components began out-selling analog-based systems. While analog systems have a cost advantage in small deployments (sixteen cameras or less), when larger number of cameras are deployed, IP-based systems may be more cost-effective initially and have a lower ongoing total cost of ownership. IP-based video surveillance systems, especially the end-node (the IP camera), have several operational and technological advantages. Why implement IP video surveillance over analog-based systems? The following subsections provide the answer.
