Significant innovations in key technology areas have enabled the development of jaw-dropping new video applications and handed a multitude of opportunities to a wide swath of business segments.

The Next Evolution

The longstanding practice of watching hundreds and thousands of cameras for suspicious behavior, and then reacting, is over. This method has proven ineffective, especially as surveillance continues to proliferate in home, business, smart cities and other connected environments.

Tackling Traffic Congestion

Tackling Traffic Congestion

One of the biggest drawbacks to living and working in modern cities is traffic congestion. It frustrates motorists. It increases the probability of accidents. It can slow response time for emergency services. And, it lowers air quality.

Securing Data Centers from the Inside Out

By the end of 2013, the world’s datasphere had grown to approximately 4.3 zettabytes large. By 2018, as artificial intelligence, smart devices, streaming services, cryptocurrency, 4G and other data-heavy applications exploded—the size of the world’s datasphere swelled sevenfold to 33 zettabytes. Come 2025, the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts the world’s datasphere to swell to 175 zettabytes.

The global video management software market is expected to value $4 Billion in 2022 and reach $30 Billion by 2032 while displaying a CAGR of 22.63% during the forecast period.

Big Solutions, Small Projects

A lot of buzz in the security industry revolves around the explosion of the global datasphere. Especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many industries to transition from in-house operations to work-from-home—if not entirely digital—formats, global data creation, consumption and circulation has skyrocketed.

A Business Owner’s Demand

Business owners are making the move to higher resolution cameras at a pace that defies the influences of the pandemic, supply chain challenges, and labor shortage, according to a new 2022 worldwide security camera report.

The Ongoing Value of VSaaS

The Ongoing Value of VSaaS

Subscription-based service models are increasing in the security industry. Shifting to video subscription as a service (VSaaS) or SaaS in general involves changing the mindset that one is receiving a service rather than a product. What end users want is a system that is always current rather than a product that can quickly become out of date or is not functional when it matters most.

Leveraging Surveillance

Leveraging Surveillance

Mitigating loss is a primary objective of retailers everywhere. Historically, this has meant taking preventive actions against shrinkage, employee theft, and Organized Retail Crime (ORC). Today, retailers are confronted with a new threat as a rise in active shooter incidents has presented new challenges.
