A new guide for security teams details how legacy analog surveillance cameras can be upgraded into a modern cloud-based video surveillance system.
Eagle Eye Networks released a best practices guide “Analog Video to Cloud” for business owners who are interested in economical ways to upgrade legacy analog video surveillance cameras to a modern, digital cloud system, and how existing cameras can be reused in the process.
This report details the advantages of managing analog camera video in the cloud including lower costs and greater flexibility, outlines video-to-cloud upgrade options, and provides readers with actionable information to successfully transition analog camera video to the cloud without having to “rip and replace” the entire system.
A recent Eagle Eye Networks study showed that analog cameras to the cloud grew in 2020 after four consecutive years of decline, likely driven by improvements in encoder technology and the need to remotely access and view video surveillance systems during the pandemic.
Topics covered in the guide include: cloud architecture, payment models, cameras and coaxial cable alternatives, and HD analog cameras.
