I recently bought a new house which happens to be right across the street from my bank. This means that, in addition to working with our banking customers all over the world, I’m now able to observe my local branch from the front porch. From these various perspectives, I have seen the increased focus banks of every size are placing on developing strategies to attract and retain customers, as they continue to keep savings and investments safe. More than ever before, banks are looking at new ways to enhance what they’re currently doing and improve the services they’ll be able to offer in the future.
As the physical security / video surveillance market continues to mature, you are seeing more and more attention paid to integrated solutions. Instead of solely looking at video management software (VMS), or video analytic software, or access control systems, you are now being drawn to VMS systems that work seamlessly with a wide range of additional capabilities such as video analytics, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, and access control – just to name a few. Over the years, end-users have come to understand —even expect— advanced technologies like video analytics being part-and-parcel of the provided solution set. Security.World caught up recently with Paul Eaton, President of Convergence To Pixel, to talk more about integrating other organizational systems into video surveillance VMS systems.
