ISC Solutions booth 1822 - TimeSight Systems, Mt. Laurel, N.J., a provider of video lifecycle management (VLM) for video surveillance, and Sentry360, a developer of advanced multi-megapixel surveillance cameras, announced a technology alliance. The companies are demonstrating their synergistic technologies at ISC Solutions.
Industry reports indicate that the video surveillance industry is seeing continued growth, with the number of installed cameras at more than 100 million worldwide and climbing annually. According to users, two of most significant problems associated with traditional video surveillance installations are ensuring the exact target area for adequate video coverage in the event of incidents, coupled with the rising cost of storing that video data as cameras continue to increase in both number and in resolution.
The collaboration between two security technology companies in the IP video space addresses these issues by combining fully immersive video with video lifecycle management to allow enterprise-class systems to not only catch all relevant video, but to also retain that video through a complete and useful lifecycle to enable true return on investment (ROI).
The hallmark of this alliance is the delivery of scalable ROI for digital surveillance. Sentry360’s multi-megapixel 360-degree immersive imaging and directional cameras reduce the amount of cameras needed to cover a given environment, thereby reducing both cost and complexity. Complementing this is the TimeSight video lifecycle management technology, which provides the ability to actually shrink stored data over time, according to business rules, to allow for greater capture and retention of high resolution video on far less bandwidth and storage requirements.
“This alliance leverages the two key technologies that deliver exactly what enterprise users are demanding — better video and better use of that video,” remarked Charles Foley, chief executive officer of TimeSight Systems. “They get wider coverage, better video, and longer retention, all with fewer cameras, fewer storage servers, and less overall cost.”
