This white paper delves into the new era of digital video surveillance archives. Digital video is quickly replacing analog systems, driven by requirements for high quality images for enhancing detail under a variety of visual conditions such as motion, low-lighting, and distance.
Digital video creates very large files that agencies may need to store indefinitely, exceeding the capacity and performance of legacy archive systems. This paper discusses a solution for lowering the costs of very high capacity archive storage using software defined object storage, industry standard x86 hardware, and an open-platform VMS (Video Management System). These are the foundations upon which large scale digital video surveillance can be achieved with most efficient cost, scale, and performance.
