Cost savings - less video sent over the network reduces the network load and storage requirements.
Time savings - monitoring and searches in recorded video become easier, allowing operators to manage more cameras.
Greater efficiency - automatically monitoring video for security incidents helps prevent crime, rather than simply reacting after the event.
Creation of business value - integrating video data into other systems, such as headcounts from entrance cameras in retail stores, means the surveillance system can contribute insights and new solutions for other business functions.
