The demand for storage is always growing. With higher resolution 4K cameras and more devices connected to video surveillance systems, deployment
requires scalable, secure, and high-performance storage. If the data storage deployment environment is centralized by decentralized infrastructure and latency-sensitive requirements, users should consider a centralized shared storage solution such as a Storage Area Network (SAN) or cloud-based service.
Choosing the right VMS is essential to an organization’s successful surveillance deployment. A central hub for connected devices, the VMS controls things like internet protocol (IP) cameras and sensors. While most video cameras are designed to support video recording and reviewing capabilities, they do not provide shared access across the organization’s wider surveillance network. The VMS collects video data from connected devices, stores that data in a central repository, and serves as an interface for viewing video in real-time or accessing recorded streams.
Storage—a key component to video surveillance—is expected to grow 18% annually, to a $1.6B market. While retrofits and upgrades account for a significant portion of this growth, surveillance has evolved beyond just security. Customer satisfaction, business intelligence, behavior analytics, and facial recognition are among the new use cases. Higher camera resolution, frame rates, and the wide dynamic range required for 4K to produce panoramic video all contribute to the growing demand.
