Motorola?has the expertise?to design best-in-class solutions for public safety agencies and?has?been active in this space?for decades.? It is this experience and the expertise which we are offering to this critical India market.

What are the international security trends in video surveillance?

The increased threat highlighted by?the?attacks in New York City, Barcelona, London, Mumbai?and Delhi,?to name a few,?is considered by many?as one of the drivers for significant growth in the wide spread deployment of digital video surveillance system around the world to cover large parts of cities and open spaces as well as the traditional domain of CCTV for indoor (closed space surveillance) and what is emerging as trends in these deployments are:

  • Use of digital cameras using IP (internet protocol) for communication is being networked together like an IT network. ?The video surveillance network resembles an IT network, with servers and computing devices;?In this case it will be with servers and cameras as the devices for image capture-instead of computing devices.
  • The growing sophistication of digital cameras that not only capture image but also can provide a limited amount of analytics capability.
  • The wide spread use of video analytics software offer basic video analysis and advanced features, such as intrusion detection, people counting, vehicle recognition, queue management and facial recognition. ?These systems can then be integrated to an overall security apparatus, with data bases of people names, vehicle license plate numbers, photo IDs and can be used to trigger various actions (alarms, notifications, warnings, access control, etc.) based on predefined policies and operational procedures.

The other trends we see are the increased use of fixed broadband wireless networks to deploy large scale outdoor video surveillance systems.
