Video Surveillance - Camera Dome

More Than Choosing the Right HD Camera

Rather than merely looking at your immediate security concerns, you should consider how the choice of a VMS today will impact what you will be able to achieve as your security needs and video technology evolve over time. Deep integration of the latest IP cameras, readiness to support the computational needs of HD and 4K video, and adaptability to complex network topologies and new storage solutions are all important considerations when choosing a modern VMS platform.

Data Privacy

Achieving True Video Privacy

Personal data privacy is top of mind and with the growing proliferation of cameras, video privacy is a topic of great debate. Encryption of communications, stronger authentication, and the protection of video should be up front and center for any public or private organization. Simple password protection is no longer enough and a better approach for video security exists today. It is one where video authorization is secure and both archived video and video in-transit is encrypted.

Buy the Way You Want

Historically, security system buying has been an up-front, total purchase. Although the norm, this ownership model does not always factor in the buyer’s budgeting and purchasing behavior. But, the Software as a Service “buy-as-you-go” model of cloud applications is shaking up the IT industry. Buying security software should be flexible, allowing organizations to purchase everything up-front, while having the option to purchase on a subscription for more predictable budgeting.
