FREMONT, CA: Video surveillance technology plays a critical role in guarding businesses' safety across industries. Enterprises ranging from hospitals and schools to manufacturing plants and retail stores rely on video surveillance to mitigate several kinds of risk. Until recently, the camera systems offering this video surveillance usually fell under facilities management teams' responsibility. Enterprises move from old, inflexible analog camera systems to modern and agile IP-powered digital video surveillance technology. Read on to know more.

Organizations that embraced voice-over IP telephony found themselves combining VoIP into their collaboration, productivity, and customer relationship management solutions.

Enterprises move from old, inflexible analog camera systems to advanced and agile IP-based digital video surveillance technology. Simultaneously, they are transforming responsibility for these systems from facilities teams to IT groups who are more familiar with offering reliable and consistent digital services to other business units.

As IT experts take charge of video surveillance, they also accept hurdles and opportunities similar to those they took on with digital telephony implementation. First, they must realize that video surveillance is a needed technology that, like a telephone, must offer a consistent, reliable, high-performance experience. Surveillance outages expose an enterprise to an unacceptable level of risk, and video systems must be handled to offer highly available service to safety and security employees.

Manufacturers implementing EVS systems can combine video data directly into manufacturing and safety operations. Applications range from rapidly identifying disruptions on an assembly line and automatically dispatching maintenance teams to monitoring employee use of eyewash stations and summoning emergency medical support. Retailers leverage video data to track customer activity and streamline product placement in their stores.
