Proactive live video surveillance is hard. It's not only difficult to economically and effectively monitor thousands of high resolution IP video cameras. It's also a huge challenge to successfully build a video monitoring network and record, store, send, and manage terabytes of video security data.
Stealth Monitoring President David Charney and host Michael Harris of Kinetic Strategies discussed Big Video Data and Business Intelligence in the Time Warner Business Class (@TWCBusiness) podcast How Big Data & Fiber Can Transform your Business.
The podcast topics included:
Here are edited comments from the podcast.
Our philosophy is that successful video management is not about just video feeds. This is also about data analytics, data warehousing, and business intelligence. We have built data sets that come back to us in close to real time. Within minutes we can tell the status of every single network object.
That means if somebody weed whacks the camera in your parking lot and cuts the wire, within minutes we will have reports here that tell us that camera 7 is down.
If it is truly weed whacked, then we know that camera's down and we dispatch technicians to go repair it. We can also start a camera or upgrade the firmware automatically from Dallas [our control center] with one of our analysts on the help desk team.
We have unbelievable service levels that we can create for our clients because of all of the data we're sending back to us. We can look at different exceptions and changes with a different lens. It's more than other people would be doing.
