CCTV Monitoring and Security Camera Networks

Monitoring of Security Camera Networks

The video surveillance market is growing at a rapid pace and the adoption of video analytics is expected to fuel this growth. Security camera networks are being deployed in more and more businesses, organizations, and government facilities. The challenge for system administrators is how to effectively monitor these growing networks and ensure that the video data is being collected and analyzed properly.

There are a number of commercial software packages available for monitoring security camera networks. These applications range from very simple closed-circuit TV viewers that allow administrators to watch live video and browse recorded footage, to sophisticated applications that integrate video analytics with other security technologies to provide real-time alerts and forensic analysis.

The key to success with any video surveillance system is to ensure that the video is being monitored and analyzed properly. This means that the system administrators need to have the right tools to monitor the video data and the ability to quickly respond to any security incidents.

Unfortunately, many businesses and organizations do not have the personnel or the tools to properly monitor their security camera networks. As a result, the video data is not being collected and analyzed properly, and security incidents are going undetected.

The good news is that there are a number of tools and solutions available to help businesses and organizations monitor their security camera networks. The key is to find the right solution that meets the specific needs of the business or organization.

SVTCCTV Experience Monitoring Security Camera Networks

Police and security teams guarding airports, ports, and border crossings from terrorist attack or illegal entry need to know immediately when someone enters a prohibited area, and who they are; a network of surveillance cameras is typically used to monitor these at-risk locations twenty-four hours a day, but these can generate too many images for human eyes to analyze; a new approach uses mathematics to perform this analysis more accurately and in a fraction of the time it would take a human camera operator.

You can’t have a person staring at every single screen, and even if you did the person might not know exactly what to look for.

For example, a person is not going to be very good at searching through pages and pages of faces to try to match [an intruder] with a known criminal or terrorist.”
For camera-based surveillance systems, operators typically have a range of computer-vision algorithms they could use to analyze the video feed. These include skin detection algorithms that can identify a person in an image, or background detection systems that detect unusual objects, or when something is moving through the scene.

In addition to port and airport security, the system could monitor video information obtained by a fleet of unmanned aircraft. It could also be used to analyze data from weather-monitoring sensors to determine where tornado’s are likely to appear, or information from water samples taken by autonomous underwater vehicles, he says. The system would determine how to obtain the information it needs in the least amount of time and with the fewest possible sensors.
