EBOOK: The Future of Video Surveillance – Trends, Opportunities and Challenges

Download this free eBook from IFSEC Global, as we compile answers from leading vendors on the major threats, challenges and opportunities in video surveillance.

So often the focal point of new tech trends and practices in the security industry, the world of video surveillance continues to undergo change. No longer viewed as simply a deterrent or a grudge purchase to review incidents, the advancements in technology have somewhat ‘shifted the goalposts’.

Alongside numerous other benefits, deep learning algorithms, video analytics, edge processing and cloud-based systems have provided professionals with valuable devices and platforms to not just ‘protect’, but prevent real-time threats from becoming security incidents in the first place. Notwithstanding the business operation benefits AI within cameras is bringing.

In this eBook from IFSEC Global, we seek to clarify some of the key themes from those pioneering the transformation of video surveillance. We surveyed and spoke with several key vendors in the sector to gauge their thoughts on the opportunities and challenges they’re witnessing within the industry – both from their own point of view, and from the conversations they’re having with customers and partners on a daily basis.

We’d like to thank all the companies who found the time to offer their unique perspectives: Axis Communications, Eagle Eye Networks, Genetec, Hanwha Techwin, Hikvision, IDIS, Milestone Systems and Omdia.
