Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Video analytics seems to be the only technology that can solve the problem of the subscribers outgoing channel, as well as the problem of storing video in the cloud. Despite the advent of cost-effective ways of storing video, storing large video volumes in the cloud is the most expensive component of the VSaaS service. Video analytics can be considered as a specialized encoder, which leaves in the video only the data that the user needs. A universal encoder, such as H.264, does not understand the importance of each element in the image and, therefore, cannot effectively filter redundant data to provide VSaaS services. For example, a standard encoder cannot distinguish a small person in the background and numerous raindrops in the foreground. If a person and each droplet are encoded with the same detail, the flow will be substantially redundant for transmission and storage.
Definition of CCTV Systems:
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems refer to a network of cameras and recording equipment used for surveillance purposes. Unlike broadcast television, the signal in a CCTV system is not openly transmitted but is instead monitored, typically for security and surveillance purposes. These systems are prevalent in various settings, capturing and recording footage that can be reviewed or monitored in real-time to enhance security, deter crime, and assist in investigations.
