How High Resolution Cameras, Big Data Analytics Are Impacting Video Storage Needs

By Jumbi Edulbehram, Regional President, Americas, Oncam

High Resolution Cameras

The IP surveillance camera market has come a long way in the last decade and is constantly changing and evolving, with manufacturers that push the envelope when it comes to producing bigger and better technology. Today’s camera manufacturers create cameras with an entire system on the edge, greater frame rates, better compression, more security, increasing capabilities (such as day/night or light sensitivity), and much, much more.

The industry is currently embattled in a race for higher resolution cameras and an increased amount of functionality, which can take a major toll on the storage needs of the end user. But innovative technology providers continue to answer the problems that evolving technology produces, allowing the marketplace to reap the benefits.

Applying Analytics

Many IP cameras today are able to run video analytic capabilities directly on the camera — allowing users to automatically detect noteworthy events and data based on pre-defined criteria. There are a number of basic pixel-based analytic processes, as well as additional object-based and other sophisticated analytics (face capture, for example), that can be run inside the camera so that additional analytics software does not have to be installed.
