The history of surveillance shows continued adoption of consumer technologies. Flash technology is the latest technology to be ‘hijacked’ and deployed in a new and creative way to meet the unique requirements of the market. Just as IP camera manufacturers are adding SD cards designed for consumer digital cameras, surveillance-optimized systems are adding flash storage as a standard feature of newer systems to increase performance for the cost-sensitive surveillance end user. It’s the latest surveillance innovation for protecting people, assets and infrastructure while simultaneously opening up new analytic uses for rich-content video.
