Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Local video storage on the gateway server on the subscriber side allows more efficient use of the outgoing channel due to data buffering. When a video analytics event occurs, the camera or the local gateway server records the video in local memory, which is then transferred to the cloud storage via an available communication channel. For such an event recording mode, the recording speed may be higher than the maximum video data rate. Local storage is also a means of ensuring the fault tolerance of a video surveillance system in the event of a temporary disconnection of the communication channel between the camera (local server) and the cloud 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.
