Adding video analytics to analog surveillance

December 05, 2011 // By nexcom
Video surveillance today is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Gone are the days of security staff watching fuzzy images on closed circuit TV (CCTV). In their place, high resolution Internet protocol (IP) cameras are improving video quality and enabling new applications like video content analytics. This shift is also driving the integration of security and surveillance into broader enterprise IT infrastructures, enabling new cost efficiencies. However, the large installed base of analog cameras presents a critical question: how can end customers take advantage of digital technology while preserving their investments in analog cameras?
