High quality Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS solutions) and intelligent video management software are required for effective security surveillance.
Video surveillance has improved with intelligent video management systems. Such systems have revolutionized security operations in various industries, corporate facilities, banks, hotel chains and even government buildings.
You first need to determine whether or not you will need this software. IVMS is a powerful tool for different types of organizations or companies. It is quite useful if you need surveillance videos for monitoring threats, investigating security incidents and detecting security violations.
Make sure you are choosing a system that will not only capture but also index and store videos in a compressed and easy-to-search manner. An advanced intelligent video management software can capture and compress videos into “events”. These videos can be easily analyzed and searched by the users. It is better to invest in a software that can also index and isolate faces, text, motion and activities automatically within the video.
The software you choose should enable you to search the database of security events without any hassles. This will ensure that the most critical video data is easily available if security officials need it. They don’t have to watch hours of video footage to get what they want.
It helps if the system comes with integrated analytics especially because advancements in motion, biometrics and character recognition have become quite popular in the surveillance industry. It is best if the system you choose operates like a security platform and makes good use of the storage and bandwidth.
Compare different manufacturers in order to choose a software that is cost-effective and protects the investment you make. The system should work with existing networks and cameras in a seamless manner. There are chances that you may have to add a new camera or area to the surveillance plan. If the IVMS doesn’t integrate with the existing equipment, it will pose challenges.
The system you choose should be easy to deploy and use. This is because sophisticated systems can be complex to use. If the software isn’t easy to manage, it will pose problems.
Initially, conventional video surveillance systems required officials to spend hours watching recorded video footage in order to analyze suspicious events. But today, intelligent video management systems have made it easier for them to scan thousands of hours of video data without any human intervention. Security personnel can investigate further if the IVS system has encountered any questionable activities.
According to various tests, it has been concluded that after 20 minutes of continuous video monitoring, humans tend to lose 50-60% of their visual perceptibility. But an intelligent video system is immune to the fatigue and scours video images while ignoring extraneous data.
The manner in which ITS solutions are required for making roads safe for people, even intelligent video management systems are necessary for effective surveillance. These systems are perfect for dynamic security environments that can change in size as well as character.
