A Primer on Wireless Network Architectures and Applications for Video Surveillance
In recent years, there has been explosive growth in the video surveillance market due to an increased need to secure the world’s ports, airports, cities and transportation infrastructure as well as schools, hospitals, government and other critical environments.? ? Organizations of all kinds are being challenged to install video surveillance in areas that are too remote, too costly or even physically impossible to reach with additional wired cabling . As a result, wireless solutions have been a boon to the video surveillance market as they enable the ability to cost-effectively leap over these barriers, allowing a virtually unlimited number of video surveillance cameras to be deployed quickly, easily and affordably.? Though there are many wired video surveillance networks already in use today, the need to expand and scale those networks cost-effectively and in a timely manner introduces an opportunity for wireless solutions to take over where wire left off.
Today, there are two predominant wireless technologies that are being utilized for the successful deployment of wireless video surveillance networks รข??? point-to-point (P2P), and point-to-multipoint (P2MP). This presentation will provide a primer on these primary wireless technologies, and how each of them stacks up as a solution for video surveillance networks.

Video Surveillance, Security and Smart Energy Management Systems
This presentation and discussion will be centered on how the technology underlying Video Surveillance is changing from that of traditional CCTV and video recorders to that of computers, wired and wireless computer IP networks, cellular and wireless mesh networks, cloud computing, video and data analytics and correlation of data and integration with distributed sensors.? Various components of high technologies from Silicon Valley such as computer, semiconductor, sensors, communications and software technologies are coming together to create systems that are proactive in nature and generate actionable information with ubiquitous access from anywhere and at any time . The deep monitoring capability of such a system combined with control electronics is likely to provide the foundation for implementing Smart Energy Management at affordable prices.

The Role of Video Analytics in Video Servers and Network Edge Products
The video surveillance systems landscape in recent years has changed due to the advent of digital video and networking platforms.? Worldwide physical security concerns have provided further impetus for acceleration in innovations and deployment of sophisticated video surveillance systems.? Video analytics or video content processing, a technology that enables real time detection, classification and tracking of people, traffic and other classifiable objects, has emerged as an important tool in many such systems.
When effectively deployed, a video analytics system, at the very least, adds reliability and productivity to a surveillance system.? A number of end-user published case studies clearly demonstrate such systems also provide a solid return in operational and capital cost savings relative to incrementally higher investment.? A video analytics enabled video storage management system provides for event- or rules-based indexing or logging, event-based archiving and event-based retrieval.? Many well designed video management platforms offer integrated communication system for real-time alerts, secure and flexible viewing anytime-anywhere, and, added flexibility in network architecture design.
Besides physical-security-driven video surveillance systems, several video analytics deployments are beginning to gain a foothold in traffic control applications.? Mission-critical and perpetual traffic control system solutions must often adapt to unique and challenging road conditions in many older and larger cities.
Newer video analytics software architectures perform in centralized, high channel density, video server configurations as well as compact, low-density, network-edge products with symmetry and equal effectiveness.? Video content processing is recognized as an evolving and strategic technology with a promising potential in wide-ranging application segments including automotive, medical, manufacturing, robotics, etc.
