R&D departments often develop their work based on the application of their training and technical knowledge . In LANACCESS , we also have the experience of several Security Directors , who provide a real vision of the current and future needs of the market.
The need to support our work as Security Directors in Closed Circuit Television ( CCTV ) is increasing, regardless of whether we are responsible for a single building or hundreds of them or for the sector of our activity. Our needs and the information provided by video systems are increasing at the same rate as technology and risks.
Basically, Security Directors need the following:
In both cases, our need tends for the chambers to cover as much surface as possible . In other words, we are increasing the number of cameras installed a lot and we are increasing the quality of the images . And with this, the amount of information to be stored in the form of data and in many cases to be transmitted, with an increase in our bandwidth needs.
To these basic or elementary needs, current technologies are providing a higher image resolution, Artificial Intelligence, systems integration platforms (P-SIM), etc.
On the other hand, we need video systems to be robust and reliable . That its operation is intuitive for our system operators and that the technical support is fast and efficient . All this without forgetting that our CCTVs must now also be cyber-safe and monitor their failures in real time.
The near future is almost a reality today. Despite the fact that some of the applied technologies are in their initial stages, we are sure that all manufacturers make a great effort in R&D.
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) applied to the CCTV is achieved extract data or metadata of the content of the images, by sorting and classification information will be considered. This, duly analyzed, will become intelligence . We are close to achieving what a few years ago we considered utopias, such as detecting the criminal in our entrances or locating a video sequence just by making a description of the suspect (he had a blue shirt, a red car, etc.).
Technologies facial recognition in America and Asia will have a larger potential market than the old Europe, which is corseted by the rules on data protection and still can not find the balance between the right to protection and the right to safety.
Along these lines, the application of facial recognition in collaboration with police databases and the various national and international police forces , especially with the incipient Ameripol, will undoubtedly be an excellent tool in the fight against organized crime .
As these collaborations between Ameripol, Europol and Interpol progress and they understand that technological collaboration with private security is a natural ally, with enormous capillarity in each society supported by new technologies, the fight against crime can be very effective.
