Best practices guide: analogue video to cloud
You can affordably upgrade your legacy analogue surveillance system to a high-performing true cloud video management system (VMS) by reusing most, if not all, of your existing cabling infrastructure and analogue cameras.
In today’s security industry, the technology exists to “encode” and transmit video in multiple accepted formats, and many video manufacturers have released products that do this quite well. The “gotchas” around reusing your existing cabling and cameras are few but can be severe if you or your security service provider are unfamiliar with analogue signal transmission and the power required to successfully transmit or convert it over the distance of the wiring.
In this paper, Eagle Eye Networks details the advantages of managing your analogue camera video in the cloud, outlines video-to-cloud upgrade options, and provides readers with actionable information to successfully transition analogue camera video to the cloud.
