Commentary and Opinions

The possibility of governments collecting and analyzing personal data changed dramatically after the enactment of The Patriot Act in 2001. The public outcry following WikiLeaks and the NSA PRISM program has kept controversial data collection methods in the headlines over the past few years. The legality of this type of data collection is still in question.
Unfortunately, none of us has any trouble imagining a security breach. Breaches are so frequent these days, so fast and so clever, that seemingly out of nowhere we could find critical infrastructure threatened, networks at risk, markets in danger.
When newspapers, popular magazines, and cable news channels run stories on public safety security and video surveillance, their knee-jerk reaction is too often a clever reference to “Big Brother” and an implication that something dangerous and sinister is happening.
By John ConvyVideo harvesting is the process of delivering access to many dissimilar video systems in a standardized form, so that you can ingest any video feed into a master video system of any kind.An example of an environment where video harvesting might be valuable is a Safe City project, with a diverse mix of many different digital and analog video streams. Some of these might be state of the art and some could be older, legacy systems.
By Richard BrentIt’s 2014 and time for a new way of thinking when it comes to security. It’s kind of like our five senses, we have each one for a reason and they are all equally valuable. We need to start giving audio the same amount of attention that we give video when it relates to security. Both audio and video should be on the same playing field but the present reality is that our industry remains focused on video only systems.
