A BOLD NEW VISION FOR PUBLIC SAFETY AND SERVICES OPERATIONS
THE CHANGING WORLD OF VIDEO
FROM PASSIVE TO PROACTIVE
Video surveillance has been a powerul productivitytool in the public saety and public services arenasor more than a quarter century now. But videosurveillance merely scratches the surace o what ispossible with video today, and what will be possiblein the very near uture. Video surveillance is rapidlyevolving into a much more comprehensive concept:video security. And the potential or video securityto help improve public saety and public works,streamline services, ght and prosecute crime,increase eciency, promote collaboration, reducecosts and save lives is virtually limitless.Video systems are being driven by bold new ways othinking about video. A new wave o advanced videotechnologies is transorming video systems rom therelative passivity o simple video surveillance to morepreemptive, more proactive, more intelligent videosecurity solutions.
BREAKTHROUGH CAPABILITIES
Video security encompasses a wide range opowerul new video-based capabilities, including:
 Streamlining video to vehicles and handhelddevices to increase real-time situational awarenessand enable rst responders to assess events andcircumstances beore they arrive onthe scene.
 Integrating disparate analog and digital videonetworks into a single video management system.
 Correlating voice, data and video inormation tocreate a more complete picture.
 Delivering analytical capabilities that allow videosystems to recognize certain events that can helpdeter crime, reduce road congestion, capturesuspects and improve eciency.
 Identiying cameras based on geography or eventbrings up appropriate video(s) to the operator screen.Video security systems also have a benecial eecton community relations. Studies show that thevisible presence o video cameras and equipment inhigh-crime areas or at dangerous intersections helpsdemonstrate that government is proactive in itscommitment to maximize public saety and security.
YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW
For years, traditional video surveillance solutionshave ollowed a simple, amiliar path. It begins withanalog video cameras recording activities in speciclocations. Once the video is recorded, it is transportedto a central command center where it is available orpost-recording analysis. While proven eective overthe years, this is essentially a passive methodology.Today, that’s actively changing.

Breakthrough video security solutions are ast emerging, and areprepared to help protect lives and property by being smarter, asterand more proactive.When movies and television programs like Quantum o Solace,24 and CSI show the heroes doing amazing things with videotechnology, is that real? In a ew cases, some liberties may betaken or entertainment purposes. But the act is, video technologyis making quantum leaps in its capabilities, especially in the publicsaety and public services sectors. Video has come a long way romsimply video surveillance monitoring.
 
EXPANDED AND ENHANCED FUNCTIONALITIES
From its beginnings in relatively straightorward videosurveillance applications, video has evolved into multi-aceted video security systems thatdeliver more proactive public saety and servicescapabilities. Video security includes three majorunctionalities, enabling you to: 
CAPTURE AND TRANSPORT
Video security encompasses the basic capture andtransport o video surveillance images and data.
MANAGE AND CORRELATE
 Video security includes breakthrough managementcapabilities such as intelligent video analytics andcorrelation o video to other data.
DEPLOY AND ACT
 Video security solutions enable proactive deployment,simplied personnel shiting and other ways o makingvideo inormation more actionable.
REAL-TIME VIDEO IN MORE PLACES
The new proactive video security solutions o todayand tomorrow are driven by the move to digitalcameras and IP-based network connectivity. Thepower and fexibility o IP-based video technologiesnow give video applications the crucial ability to costeectively distribute real-time video to many dierentplaces, providing immediate data and analysis thatcan dramatically improve the saety and eectivenesso police, re, EMS, public works and other municipaland government personnel. At the same time, videosecurity enables advanced new capabilities such asvoice, video and data integration that consolidateand correlate all available data on a specicevent, coordinating and delivering more and betterinormation… all in real time.
VIDEO ANALYTICS
Advanced video analytics enable systems to not onlycapture what’s happening at given locations, but alsoto automatically interpret the inormation the video iscapturing. Analytics rules engines use pre-determinedcriteria to analyze event and parameter data rom avariety o sources. Using combinations o sophisticatedalgorithms and communications protocols, analyticssotware makes it easy to customize video capture,recording and analysis. Public saety and otherdepartments can congure the system to record andrecognize specied content. Is there motion where thereshould be none, such as on the perimeter o a acility?Is there an object where no object should be, such asunattended luggage in an airport terminal? Is there nomovement where there should be movement, such as avehicle parked in a location or too long a period? Videoanalytics enables aster problem recognition, whichleads to more ecient, more eective problem solving.
INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION
Once live video has been analyzed and interpreted,intelligent automation systems can make decisions onthe most appropriate response based on pre-denedrules. Automated responses include actions like alertinga dispatcher o specic situations such as large crowdor trac buildups. They can also include commands tointelligent devices, such as directing video cameras topan/tilt/zoom and begin recording in the direction o anevent. For example, when a re alarm sounds, camerasnearest the location can automatically send video tothe control center, which can instantly stream the videoto re vehicles en route, enabling re ghters to betterassess the situation beore they arrive. Or a police car’sdashboard camera can be set to automatically beginrecording when the vehicle’s siren or lights are turnedon. Expanding capabilities will allow intelligent digitalcameras to work together in concert, enabling, orexample, the automatic tracking o a suspect movingrom camera to camera.
VIDEO SECURITY FUNDAMENTALS
PAGE 3
 What’s the defnition o video security?
Video security systems are end-to-end high-speed network architectures that deliver expanded and enhanced video-based unctionalitiesdriven by a variety o highly sophisticated technology tools. Video security solutions makevideo smarter, aster and more proactive. The undamentals: the use o powerul analyticcapabilities, automated intelligence throughout the network, seamless interoperability andcommon, intuitive end user interaces.
Advanced videoanalytics enablesystems to not onlycapture what’shappening at givenlocations, but also to automaticallyinterpret theinformation thevideo is capturing.
