DALLAS, TX USA – November 20, 2015 – Stealth Monitoring announced that it now watches 7,000 video cameras every night. In October Stealth saw and reported over 1,400 incidents, dispatched police 250 times, and led to the arrests of 22 people. Stealth has clients in 26 states in the US from coast to coast that range from enterprise customers with up to 50 sites to single location businesses.
Stealth Monitoring provides live video surveillance to hundreds of commercial locations nationwide. Stealth also sells, rents, and services high resolution IP megapixel cameras and equipment for a complete video security solution.
Stealth Monitoring has become a large video service provider to support this large scale of cameras. Stealth operates multiple control center rooms with multiple layers of redundancy. One 1.3 megapixel IP camera can produce up 10 megabytes per second of video content. Client network video recorders store up to hundreds of terabytes of data. The Stealth facility receives petabytes of video each year.
Live video surveillance is a fast-growing sector of the video security market. An estimated 17 million networked video cameras will ship in 2015. Virtually all of them, as well as the existing base of over 100 million video cameras, are not watched live. These cameras are reactive for after-the-fact investigations and cannot prevent a live crime in progress. Recorded video is typically ineffective in apprehending suspects as they can’t identify criminals that wear hats or hoods to hide their faces.
In comparison live video surveillance is proactive. Stealth live surveillance combines video analytics with human intelligence. A Stealth operator can see unusual activity, activate a speaker warning to deter thieves or criminals, and call the local police. Numerous Stealth calls for dispatch result in police arrest while the suspect is still on-site.
Stealth Monitoring doesn’t just watch cameras. The company also monitors camera and data network health. Proprietary camera statistics software constantly checks cameras and equipment to ensure they’re working and correctly operating. It can detect problems related to power, internet, wireless, and camera outages. Stealth control center staff can notify the property owner and property management when there is a technical problem. They can often remotely repair hardware problems 24/7 for clients with Stealth-supplied cameras.
Video reviews are another Stealth video monitoring client service benefit. Stealth Monitoring analysts conduct video research, study significant video analytic data, and respond to customer investigation requests. Stealth provides a concise summary of what happened on camera with related police report data if available.
