The necessary evolution of video surveillance systems

In 1942, Germany developed a closed circuit television for its army. The idea of ​​creating this surveillance system was to follow up on the launch of V2 missiles.

 

Similarly, but on the American continent, the United States Army developed a similar system to follow nuclear tests from a safe distance, which kept scientists, military and personnel running the tests out of radiation.

 

The use of these types of rudimentary systems continued by governments and armies. Many years passed for this type of technology to be marketed for the benefit of private companies.

 

Subsequently, the systems called “quadrant generators” appeared, with which several cameras could be displayed at the same time on the same monitor or group of monitors.

 

The first recording systems on videotape were followed by digital recording. In parallel, the video surveillance cameras also evolved, leaving aside those of b / w and focusing on the color ones, significantly improving the resolution and consequently the detail.

 

Already by the decade of the 90's, the launch of the first cameras connected to computer networks marked the new birth of video surveillance, where the cameras are connected to a local area network without the need for a computer, allowing users constantly check them from any connected device.

IKUSI is a company with more than 40 years investing in research and development to evolve video surveillance systems at the speed that the world demands. The company has a capacity installed in practically the entire globe, which allows governments, companies and organizations of all sizes to insure assets, facilities and personnel with the highest standards of quality and regulatory matters.

 

Currently, there are highly innovative schemes such as those proposed by IKUSI, such as security as a service (SECaaS), which is a model in which a service provider integrates its security services into an corporate infrastructure subscription by way more profitably than most other corporations can provide for themselves, when considering the total cost of ownership.

 

SECaaS is inspired by the software as a service (SaaS) or “software as a service” model, as in other aspects of modern computing, both for companies and governments. It does not require local hardware, which avoids significant capital outlays. Future models are not static but scalable and adaptable to the needs and physical and computer infrastructure of each organization.
