Broadband and video surveillance

What impact will the introduction of broadband video surveillance systems?

What benefit can we have?

On which issues we must put our attention to grasp the real benefits?

We talk about first advantage in the introduction of broadband video surveillance systems based on networked IP cameras: real-time data transmission, high-definition picture, excellent fluidity of video, clickable map from multiple concurrent users. Increasing the quality, detail and overview and usability.

Any critical issues to handle: these IP based systems require a network infrastructure with appropriate bandwidth. Nowadays there are many options to get broadband access required.

Paradoxically, the speed of connections can lead to serious problems of congestion which can lead stall systems designed without due attention. More videos are defined more commit network resources and those of processing.

For example if a chain of 10 stores have a centralized Control Room, to receive the live streams to 30 cameras installed in various provinces, is potentially to manage a flow of 200 Mbit/sec.

As you can imagine, the computing resources to devote to the control room can be really challenging compared to the real needs.

It is therefore essential to use of software that can control the bandwidth of benefiting from them the greatest potential at the right time, ensuring the absence of congestion.

To continue our example, we can configure the system so that it uses the low resolution, low frame rate, when they are displayed simultaneously the 30 streams, and applies maximum definition when it displays a single.

With these settings the system will always be fluid, will not require the installation of expensive hardware and will always be stable, responsive and functional.
