Surveillance trends for 2017
February 2017, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The rise of a depressed economy, particularly in South Africa, has caused a significant amount of pressure on most manufacturing concerns. The reality that security gets pushed to the doldrums infiltrates most businesses as most folk place emphasis on more pressing matters, such as paying salaries and keeping the proverbial lights on.

That being said, the security industry has an incredible way of re-inventing itself. With the advent of megapixel technology it has become evident that the ‘camera footprint’ is in danger of decreasing. Not only is this great news for our consumers, but it does question our intention with design. From a systems integrator perspective, are we actually after creating a monster amount of cameras or are we after minimising and more importantly optimising sites to assure client satisfaction?

A different approach

The answer is multi-faceted. We as designers can get extremely lazy and stuck in a rut in the way that we have always done things, or we can invent a new approach to the problem by asking the correct questions and by utilising devices that are much smarter.

The use of multi-directional cameras placed in one housing is an example of how to decrease counts of cameras. Utilising high megapixel panoramic cameras is another.

Most of my learned friends would argue bandwidth, they would argue space and they would argue cost. Surprisingly on all three counts the manufacturers have come up with answers to our question. The invention of smart H.264 decreases a significant output of bandwidth to a minuscule amount, the driving down of price has made these products affordable. Understanding pixel density and how to optimise a design is of crucial importance and this will be a driving trend in 2017.
