A proliferation of cameras has resulted in an overwhelming amount of video available to security operators, analysts and investigators. Technology that used to be prohibitively priced, is now cheap and readily accessible.
According to a recent analysis by Cisco Systems, internet traffic related to video surveillance is expected to grow sevenfold between 2016 and 2021 as cameras move towards IP Video. More video equals greater potential to monitor for risks, find clues or events that will help solve a case or respond to incidents quicker — but the curse? Someone has to monitor or, in a post-event situation, review all that video.
