Powered By Genetec: The Next Movement

In orchestral music, a movement refers to a self-contained section within a larger composition. For example, a symphony usually consists of four movements, each with its own distinctive musical material and structure. The movements typically have different tempos, keys, and moods, and they often follow a traditional pattern. As an audience member, you can listen for a movement by paying attention to changes in the music. Typically, there will be a pause between movements, and you may notice a shift in tempo or key.

The U.S. NDAA And The Impact On Video Surveillance

A crucial piece of legislation that establishes the Department of Defense’s (DoD) budget and policies is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of the United States. The DoD and other federal agencies’ use of video surveillance camera equipment is a crucial component of the NDAA. Concerns regarding the potential use of surveillance technology by foreign adversaries have risen in recent years.

Smart Cities and Security.World

Urban regions that use cutting-edge technology and data analytics to increase their livability, sustainability, and efficiency have created a new term “Smart Cities.” The idea of these Smart Cities centers on the management and optimization of urban processes through the use of numerous interconnected technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud computing.

Advancements in Airport Security with Video Surveillance

By Jay Jason Bartlett Airport security is a crucial aspect of air travel since it safeguards the safety and security of passengers, employees, and aircraft. In reaction to the rise in terrorism and other security threats, airports have implemented a number of security measures to fortify their defenses. One of the biggest advancements in airport […]

Testing Physical Security Systems: Ensuring The System Is Working Properly

Physical security systems play a critical role in protecting people, property, and assets from unauthorized access, theft, vandalism, and other forms of harm. These systems range from alarm systems and perimeter fence to surveillance cameras and access control devices and they need to be inspected frequently to make sure they are operating properly and offering sufficient security. Testing the physical security systems that we have spent significant expense into installing into our environments involves evaluating their performance and detecting any vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers.

Outdoor Events and Nomadic Surveillance Cameras: A General Overview

In recent years, the usage of mobile security cameras at outdoor events has grown in popularity. For event planners wishing to improve their security and monitoring capabilities, these cameras offer a versatile and portable alternative. Nomadic cameras can aid in ensuring the participants’ safety and the success of any major gathering, including concerts, festivals, sporting events, and other types of events. In this article, we will highlight the advantages of employing mobile cameras and other security equipment as well as how they may benefit security workers and event planners.

Video Surveillance In No-Light / Low-Light Conditions

Video surveillance cameras are frequently used in a variety of settings to provide protection and security. However, these cameras frequently have lighting problems, especially at night or in dimly lit environments. The capacity to record clear video may actually be hampered by these lighting circumstances, which may even threaten the surveillance system’s overall performance. These circumstances make low-light or no-light video security cameras useful because they can record precise and clear video in low lighting.

Autonomous Physical Security: Advancements And Future Prospect

As we know it, physical security is the protection of personnel, property, and assets from theft, damage, or unauthorized access. With the advancement of technology, physical security has evolved from traditional methods such as access control systems, video surveillance cameras, and human security guards to autonomous systems, providing enhanced protection and improved operational efficiency. Autonomous physical security refers to the integration of advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), robotics, and internet of things (IoT), to create self-sufficient security systems that can operate without human intervention.

Physical Security And Cyber Security: Two Layers Of An Overall Security Solution

Physical security is a crucial aspect of cyber security as it deals with the protection of the tangible components of a computer system. Given that it involves safeguarding the actual physical parts of a computer system, physical security is an essential component of cyber security. The elements of physical security include protecting workstations, servers, storage systems, and other pieces of gear. To guarantee the privacy, accuracy, and availability of the data stored and processed on these systems, these assets must be physically protected.

Retention Challenges in Video Surveillance Storage

Video surveillance retention is the practice of keeping recorded footage from security cameras for a specified period of time. While this technology can be beneficial in solving crimes and monitoring security, it is not without its limitations. One of the biggest limitations of video surveillance retention is the cost involved. Installing and maintaining a video surveillance system can be expensive, and the cost of storing the recorded footage can add up quickly.

Snap Surveillance Opens North American Operations

Snap Network Surveillance announced the establishment of North American operations based in San Diego, CA. This new office will focus on the United States and Canada regions as well as provide additional support to Central and South America. The new San Diego office will function as a demo center for the company’s Force Multiplier VMS add-on tool, which delivers significantly faster and more reliable suspect tracking and forensic review capabilities.
