With the advent of new technology, the scope for innovation has increased manifold. And so has the threat to this technology.
For the past few years, the major topic of focus for video surveillance has been focused on the migration from analog to IP and what’s needed to make this switch possible. It’s an important conversation, but there are other emerging trends and technologies that are redefining not only the infrastructure behind video surveillance but also how enterprises and organizations are fundamentally using this technology.

1. Surveillance cameras with embedded intelligence
The cameras with wider coverage & higher resolutions is accelerating and in addition to this there is demand to have more capabilities, like compression, streaming, storage and analytic already embedded into the camera. With improved intelligence in cameras, storage management software to effectively manage the influx of data will become even more important. Sparsh is a pioneer and leader in manufacturing Electronic Video Surveillance products inIndia with its Smart IP camera series provide built-in intelligence for better & secure world.

2. IoT sensors and video management
There is a lot of innovation in the Internet of Things (IOT) space that is creating entirely new ways of interacting with locks, cameras and alarm sensors.The emerge of internet of things (IoT) is one of the main reasons for rapid data growth. The challenge here is to merge IoT data with video surveillance and enable collective business intelligence.Embedded sensor technology is  allowing  cities to become smarter, and data from that sensor input will be integrated with video data and analysed to help make urban communities more attractive. Sparsh is already working in this direction and has launched many IoT camera & solutions.

3. Statistical reporting from Video Data
Today, most of video analytics are for non-security purposes. To support these analytical functions, video must be retained for longer periods. Video-based data is now is being used for business purposes and will produce greater financial returns as well. Highly sophisticated video analytics applications will see greater adoption to make better business decisions.

4. Video surveillance-as-a-service emerges
As we see smarter cameras and more types of sensors integrated into them, there’s been a movement toward more in-band analytics. This confluence of factors is laying the foundation for surveillance-as-a-service.

Smaller deployments will be aggregated into this service model. For example, corporate campuses can centralize surveillance services if they use smart cameras with in-band analytics and other sensors, in order to automate functions and enable a more proactive approach to surveillance, and bridge the gap between a prosecution model to a more preventative system.
