New Products and Technology Are Changing Our World
Did you know there are over 50 million surveillance cameras in the U.S. today? Or that many countries like Great Britain have created massive video systems that permit monitoring of virtually all of major cities like London?
The post-911 world has been greatly affected by changes in society, security and technology. Government and corporate officials have pushed for greater use of surveillance to enhance physical security; dramatic enhancements in digital technology have enabled greater transmission, storage and management of video and related data, at reduced cost; and business people and consumers alike have grown to accept the intrusiveness of video surveillance as the one of the prices to pay for a safer society.
The Ubiquity of Video Surveillance
You may not even notice cameras as you work, shop, travel or play, but they’re probably nearby. Look at all the locations where wireless and wired cameras have become commonplace:
- Office buildings
- Retail shops
- Buses, trains, lobbies, airports
- Highways and stop lights
- Government and military facilities
- Schools – inside buildings and on campus
Video Surveillance Options
Whether you’re managing security and surveillance for your transportation system, company or school, or acting as a VAR or integrator for your customers’ networks, Intelect can help you understand the complex world of video surveillance, design a solution, and help you implement it. Here are some of the questions and issues you need to consider before investing in a video surveillance system:
- What are the goals of your network, and how will you measure them?
- How does video surveillance fit into your larger security programs?
- Will your video network be integrated into other systems, e.g. real-time alerts?
- Do you need real-time video, or can it be stored and reviewed later?
- Do you have the resources to effectively monitor your network?
- Do you require digital IP video, or will analog suffice?
- How much remote surveillance do you need? If this is a significant need, are you prepared to create a backhaul system to centrally collect the data?
- Will you prefer wireless surveillance, or can a wired solution work?
- If you plan to monitor vehicles such as buses and trains, how will you capture and access the data, and how often?
These are just some of the most pressing issues in the exciting, but sometimes daunting world of wireless and wired video surveillance. Intelect can be your single source to understand how these questions affect your organization, then engineer and implement the best video solution for you.
