Data and Surveillance: Delivering Actionable Insights

HOW DATA DRIVES GREATER INSIGHTS

Surveillance is More Than Just Seeing; It’s Looking Ahead


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.

$62.62B by 2023

The global video surveillance market is expected to reach over $62 billion in revenue by 20231

We amass and generate large amounts of information from the increasing number of data points captured by such edge devices as surveillance cameras. Applying analytics to real-time captured data is driving new smart video apps whose video streams extract value and intelligence that drive actionable insights. The ability to add local storage to and have enough built in compute power to enable real-time data analytics in the camera itself, will make every edge unit in the surveillance system a smart and independent subsystem.

DERIVING INTELLIGENCE FROM CAPTURED VIDEO

Smart Video with Actionable Insights


Today’s surveillance systems collect huge amounts of data, but only a small amount is actually utilized. Unless a security incident occurs, you typically don’t need the data. However, the captured data can be extremely valuable for other types of business or operational insights, not related to security and protection. These insights can lead to generating revenue, improving efficiencies, and problem solving.


Smart video is about the shift from imagery to insights, from simply collecting data for forensic or backwards-viewing, to analyzing and understanding its context. It uses artificial intelligence (AI) and algorithms derived from big data apps to provide immediate insights and forward-looking predictions, that are driving today’s smart video applications.

SURVEILLANCE EXPERTS AGREE

Today’s surveillance systems have moved beyond simple low-resolution video capture, to massive networks capturing 4K video and leveraging advanced new analytics software to unlock new business value from video recordings. This has resulted in a surge in the volume and velocity of surveillance data at the edge and is creating demand for storage solutions that support the performance requirements of 4K video, 24/7 operation, and movement of video for smart insights.
