Role of CCTV Surveillance Systems in Improving Security
In the past decade, CCTV Surveillance Systems have made significant technological advancements not only in terms of individual features but also the potential to communicate with other monitoring technologies.
The industry experts say that there are three major means of using CCTV systems: as an interdictive device, forensic purposes and a deterrent. In the education Industry also, CCTV Cameras have been used for exam security in order to prevent cheating from using high-tech technology.
The CCTV monitoring devices were initially simply destructive. The idea of watching “Big Brother” was also necessary to deter people from going wrong. However, CCTV monitoring systems are actually popular enough to lose novelty, diminishing reliability as a basic barrier, in particular for unauthorized entry or breaches.
Usage of CCTV Control Services Emerging
With the more effective capturing and preservation of technology and applications such as video analysis, CCTV tracking systems have developed into a forensic instrument — that is the storage of evidence during an activity.
As CCTV surveillance services are more readily combined with monitoring systems, alarms and access control equipment, a third application of CCTV is gaining momentum: allowing security workers to detect and disrupt safety violations as they happen or even before they occur.
Smart video algorithms can identify suspicious movements and notify a guard to access a video camera, for example, by using the advanced motion detection technology. Object algorithms may recognise someone who might actually loiter or even a briefcase or other suspicious object that should not be left anywhere. Again a control guard may be alerted by the system to take necessary action.
Facial recognition is the most advanced smart video algorithm. However, most analysts believe that it is still many years to use this technology as an effective instrument in the private sector.
Intelligent video algorithms are typically a part of a security room computer system so that video is fed via a variety of CCTV cameras. On the horizon, however, the producers can create cameras that process the smart video algorithm directly within the camera.
Another technology is now growing in common with CCTV cameras, with a wide dynamic range. A large dynamic field means that cameras can overcome the specifics where the light and the dark areas of the same scene are tremendously large. This cannot be achieved by traditional cameras.
