Security and video surveillance needs change with time, and it's important to keep up with those changing needs. For video management system (VMS) software, features that were sufficient to meet video surveillance needs when a system was installed may not be sufficient now.
It often appears that everyone in the industry is talking about how to lower the costs of networked surveillance cameras compared to that of the analog security video type. What doesn’t seem to get as much attention is the fact that the really expensive cameras are growing as fast as is the low-end camera market.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) were designed to provide guidance for any site involved in manufacturing, storing and/or transporting chemicals.
Today’s IP video systems have more cameras than ever, and why not? Given the simplicity of installing a camera anywhere on the network, many enterprises are reaping big benefits from additional cameras to provide more video and better visibility into every aspect of enterprise operation.
As more IP video data is managed by IT departments, Cisco announces that their latest Video Surveillance Manager program is enabling security professionals to move beyond traditional surveillance deployments to transform security.
In the past five years, city surveillance has become one of the largest vertical markets in the network surveillance industry. Throughout North America, cities of all sizes are deploying city-wide surveillance solutions. Even cities with populations as small as 10,000 are deploying systems.
IP surveillance has long since graduated to a mainstream technology in the security industry – but if you’re still sitting on the fence as to whether or not it’s right for your application, the following list of IP surveillance benefits may help you to decide.
In the decade since 9/11, the United States has invested enormous resources into protecting our critical infrastructure from asymmetrical attacks, such as car bombs and hijacked airplanes. The problem is that our most vital facilities – pipelines, ports, refineries and power plants – are also vulnerable and difficult to secure due to their remote locations.
