Ensuring the safety and security of patients and employees is critical to healthcare organizations of all sizes. For larger facilities, such as a hospital campus, the task can seem monumental – leading many in the industry to turn to solutions partners to develop a migration strategy from analog or hybrid systems to deploying complete IP network surveillance technology systems to ensure their security infrastructure is up to the task.
An increased shift to HD network video products is also contributing to significant growth within the security industry.
According to IHS Research, the total market for video surveillance equipment in the Americas is estimated to grow to $5.7 billion in 2015.
For the healthcare industry, the move to high-definition IP surveillance systems allows hospitals to leverage the power of the facility’s existing IT network to correlate information from traditionally separate subsystems, such as video surveillance and analytics. Many hospitals already have installed robust network infrastructures in recent years, which make them well suited for IP-based video systems.
HD imaging Megapixel IP cameras have a wider field of view than analog cameras and digital zoom features allow hospital staff to maintain a wide frame for complete coverage or zoom- in options to examine specific points of interest, that analog cannot capture.
In addition, HD imaging delivers crystal clear HD images that capture minute details including facial features, tiny lettering and numbering. Such cameras can be positioned at hospital entrances, waiting rooms, and high-security areas to provide a watchful eye over patients.Source: panasonicforbusiness.com
