Surveillance systems are a really sophisticated piece of technology and regular advancements are being undertaken by major surveillance companies to provide better service to their clients and gain an upper hand on competitors. No matter what the reasons are for these advancements, they are pretty cool. Here are some of the latest advancements in surveillance systems:
- Integration of Cloud-Based Systems or VSaaS:
VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) is a cloud service model specifically designed and developed for video surveillance system. If you ever wanted a really scalable video management system, then now you have it. With the help of cloud, you can store “unlimited” amounts of recordings and that too properly sorted!
Cloud has made the work of purchasing new hardware for storage irrelevant as you can get more storage with just a click of a button and that too at a fraction of the cost. You don’t have to worry about malwares as companies have implemented their malware detection systems like Hikvision malware in their respective cloud systems for the protection of your recordings.
- Integration of Different Types of Camera Systems:
With the need for better security systems, many camera systems are becoming obsolete. Due to this, many companies are now making camera systems that have multiple features like a motion detection system camera, which only records when it detects motion. This saves electricity as well as storage capacity of the drive. These technologies help make your surveillance even better.
- Increasing Quality of Video Recording:
Earlier, the size of the recorded video was a big hindrance to improving the quality of the video. The camera could record high resolution videos, but because the size had to remain less, the image size would pixelate on big screens. Ever since big data has taken the world by storm, video recording quality has also increased tremendously as size isn’t that much of a problem anymore.
- Face Tracking Algorithms:
Since video surveillance systems are now connected to cloud systems, they have the resources to run complex algorithms instantaneously. Due to this reason, a video camera can now track a specific face and follow that face across the entire network of cameras. This is especially useful when the security personnel need to keep an eye on any suspicious individual.
These are the latest advancements in the video surveillance systems sector. There is still research underway and soon we would see much more advanced surveillance systems.
