Special Topic: Storage of Video Footage

  • Video surveillance boom creates storage headaches
    Video surveillance is growing at an eye-popping rate. The world market for network video surveillance products increased by 41.9 per cent in 2006, according to IMS Research. Cheap digital cameras, big broadband pipes, ubiquitous wireless connections and readily available technologies are combining with demand for more safety and security to create a dramatic surge in installations at the front-end. But with that comes a need for video storage solutions at the back-end to house huge multimedia files on networks. Security people need to work with IT staff to sort out their selection criteria for the best possible storage system.

Installation Focus: Casinos

  • Specifying IP video systems for the casino market.

Product Focus: Wireless cameras
