Create smart surveillance systems

Keywords:video surveillance systems  digital systems  digital sensor  compression technology 

The past few years have seen the rise of video surveillance and its widespread adoption throughout the world. This adoption has been driven by a transition from analogue to digital systems. This transition is marked by decreasing camera and recording equipment costs, advances in digital sensor and compression technology, and improved IP network infrastructure that reduce the cost of transporting video data over large distances.

While this "cost reduction" approach has been successful in driving rapid growth in the industry, digital surveillance systems have been little more than replacements for their analogue counterparts. The true potential of the leading-edge surveillance technology has not yet been realised. This article discusses the technical requirements of future video surveillance systems and the hardware and software changes that are taking place to meet these needs.
