Choosing the right storage technology for video surveillance
In the last ten years we have witnessed the rapid transition from analog to digital recording technologies, which utilise all IP cameras. These IP cameras have made it possible to record higher resolution images than ever before by using advanced compression technologies and commercial grade image processors.
These high-resolution cameras, coupled with the demand for longer video retention times, have driven the need for increased amounts of storage. The days of recording from a finite number of cameras are over. Today’s security systems need to be designed to scale for increased camera count, higher retention requirements, and evolving camera and surveillance technologies
