Top 5 video surveillance technology trends for 2013

Top 5 Video Surveillance Technology Trends 

Predictions from Charlie Hare, national category manager, security and mobile video solutions, Panasonic System Communications:1. Transition from analog to IP surveillance systems will accelerate. Recent advances in surveillance technology and the ability to integrate existing analog structures with new IP-based products and software have made it even easier to increase system scalability, enhance functionality and reduce costs. As a result, even businesses that may have been reticent to transition to IP-based surveillance technologies are finding it difficult to ignore the benefits. 2. Higher image quality via HD. While full, 1080p HD cameras have been readily available in recent years, they have seen limited adoption; however, significant advantages between standard-definition and high-definition video quality will drive a migration from 720p. Economies of scale and significant advancements in compression technologies, bandwidth management and a richer and more capable network infrastructure means the benefits that better video quality delivers will outweigh the challenges. 3. Video analytics will play bigger role in business optimization. More cameras mean more data that can be used for a variety of business operations – from marketing to supply chain optimization. As algorithms become more sophisticated and increasingly powerful, computer technology can interpret surveillance video in real-time and more reliable, application-specific analytics capabilities will emerge. 4. Increased capture and management of evidence-grade video. The growth of video surveillance has spurred an increase in the use of security video as evidence in civil and criminal litigation. Questions regarding picture quality, provenance, and chain of custody will diminish as video evidence is captured in high resolution, time-stamped and stored in a tamper-proof encrypted file. 5. Comprehensive offerings from a single company. In 2013, more surveillance customers will be looking for comprehensive system and solutions offerings from a single vendor and holding them responsible for end-to-end integration and interoperability among the system components.’
