Why should a customer continue to buy “premium” surveillance cameras?

Remarkable changes are happening in the video camera market for surveillance applications, including the emergence of lower-priced products that offer features that previously were only available at a much higher price point. Deflating prices of cameras are sometimes referred to as a “race to the bottom” – foreshadowing a market of low-cost cameras that all provide similar features. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable to comment on camera pricing trends and how c...

Uniview Ultra 265: The new era of high definition video surveillance

From ADSL to 4G, from Resistive Touch Screens to OLED, electronic products are in pursuit of higher and higher definitions. Starting from the D1 resolution, video surveillance products have now reached 4K, which is 25 times higher. However, the development speed was held back by the increasing need for storage space and bandwidth brought by higher resolution video. Combining U-Code and H.265 Taking the 4K camera as an example, the common industry standard bitrates is 8Mbps for H.264. Hence 591...

Diving into AI and deep learning at NVIDIA’s San Jose Conference

A technology poised to transform the physical security market is deep learning, which is a neural network approach to machine learning, differentiated by an ability to train using large data sets for greater accuracy. In effect, the system “learns” by looking at lots of data to achieve artificial intelligence (AI). Phases of deep learning I heard a lot about AI, including how it can transform the physical security marketplace, when I attended NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conferenc...
