With the arrival of the age of IoT where an increasingly number of devices are connected to the Internet, the issue of cybersecurity has gained more importance. The recent distributed denial-of-service attack all but underscored the urgency of protecting devices against cyber threats.
How to fully employ the information video provides to enhance business intelligence and operational efficiency has become an increasingly important focus for solutions providers, especially amid fiercer competition in the video markets.
For 2017, video surveillance players cited various trends, such as advanced compression, analytics and managed service. But according to vendors, none of those compares with the issue of cybersecurity, especially after the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack last year.
It goes without saying that cameras, NVRs or other security equipment for industrial, transportation or other applications that are critical in nature should be toughened and hardened to withstand extreme conditions. To find out how strong a product is against water or particles, it is better to ref...
Now that the New Year has begun, most video surveillance vendors have offered their insights into what will be the prevailing trends in 2017. Taking a look at these trends, we can see that they reflect a generate desire by the vendors to offer more value to users amid harsher competition in the indu...
Last year video surveillance growth was a mere 4.2 percent, due mostly to Chinese vendors' effort to drive down prices and gain more market share. Amid this, the more well-established Western vendors are investing in technology and solutions that go beyond traditional security applications and provi...
Ensuring data redundancy and integrity has become more important than ever, especially as far as video surveillance is concerned. Besides hardening each individual component in the system, the resilience and robustness of the whole system should also be considered.
The total cost of ownership (TCO) is a great tool to calculate the money to be spent on a surveillance project during its entire lifecycle. If the right technology or product is used, it can help save on the TCO to be incurred during the project’s lifetime.
It goes without saying that in surveillance, data integrity and loss time prevention are of utmost importance. Each individual unit that makes up a surveillance system – for example cameras and encoders – should ideally have built-in redundancy and resilience measures.
The growing popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT), along with more developed technology and lower cost of sensors, has boosted the use of sensors. Based on figures from a report by bccResearch, the global market for sensors reached US$101.9 billion in 2015.
