Video Surveillance can give you both positive as well as negative feelings and that’s due to the fact that we are under constant vigil which on one side gives us a secure feeling, and on the other side breaks our privacy. As per a recent survey, it is proved that an average American citizen can be caught on camera more than 75 times a day.
Well, most of you might have never observed this happening. But the next time when you leave your house, keep an eye on all those electronic cameras that are watching you at the gas station, traffic signals, parks, work place, garages, errands, and such—you will know the count for yourself.
While this increase in video surveillance worries some, there are undisputed benefits particularly in the realm of public safety. For instance, after 2013 Boston Marathon bombing law enforcement officials used surveillance footage to identify and track the suspects. Security cameras at the venue captured every move of the bombers and this helped law enforcement agencies to reconstruct the crime scenes such as from where they approached the site, how the explosives were planted, and their escape.
The agencies also used a different type of infrared aerial footage to locate one of the suspects who was hiding in a boat in a residential neighborhood. Sans this valuable video evidence, it surely would have taken more than four days to pick the two attackers out of such a large crowd.
Thus, the usage of surveillance has increased to prevent crime, protect property and improve public safety.
According to a recent survey report conducted by IHS Technologies, approximately 566 petabytes of data was generated in just one day from new surveillance camera installations installed worldwide in 2015 and future estimates show that by 2019 that data will grow to over 2,500 petabytes per day.
This explosive data growth combined with extended video retention periods poses a major challenge for companies as they struggle to collect, process and organize these incredible large datasets. And this is where the need for smart and economical video storage solutions arises.
DNF Security knows where the industry is heading and what it needs at this time. So, it offers all its video storage and recording solutions in such a way that they can be integrated with a cloud based archival solution.
DNF Security Falcon series of Video Storage appliances can be integrated with DNF Security Cloud Connection. By doing so, users can store all frequently accessed hot data on the physical appliance and transfer archives or cold data to a secure StoneFly Cloud Drive hosted in Microsoft Azure or the StoneFly Cloud Business Center.
Thus, users can immediately save on capital and operating expenses, enabling organizations large and small to implement offsite video archival and backup inexpensively.
