Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Computer vision, the field of how to enable computers to see the world, has been studied in the research community for a long time, and various technologies have been developed and are mature enough to be deployed in our daily lives. These technologies include but are not limited to facial recognition for personal password login, moving object detection and tracking for video surveillance, and human activity recognition for entertainment purposes. The backend software system captures and analyzes the live video data and responds accordingly, depending on the target application.
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.
