Video Management Step by Step

How to effectively manage video on the network

Lavery: Higher compression rate and higher capacity medium are being introduced to the industry. This includes the use of H.264 compression which will increase the use of megapixel cameras that are too burdensome to most networks at this time. Also, the increased use of fiber, media converters and 802.11n wireless technology will increase network capacity.

Monti: Embedded, distributed intelligence will have the largest impact on the video security industry over the next ten years.  

Anderson: Video storage and management should be done on a software platform on a conventional server.  Most VMS platforms, software is run on a box, which adds a lot of complexity, costly especially for smaller applications.
