With increased demands placed on safety and security globally, coupled with new IP and 360-degree camera technologies, video surveillance is expected to grow steadily. But it isn’t just about security any longer. Smart video is also about extracting value and intelligence from the content captured. This could include gaining insights into retail shopper behaviors, managing traffic congestion, or providing more efficient operations and yields.
What has changed in video surveillance is not how data is captured, but how it’s used to drive actions, not only to support fast data applications that analyze collected data now, but big data applications ready to analyze data in the future. It’s no longer about just storing data, but what we can do with it once captured, that is fueling a new generation of smart video.
