Some of the latest innovations showcased within PSIM segments included retail, hospitality, education, critical infrastructure, manufacturing, oil & gas, transportation and smart cities.
Surveillance is moving beyond security to other applications. The role of a camera has moved on from passive to intelligent surveillance. As a result, intelligent video is not only used as a security tool but is emerging as a tool for gathering business intelligence and other applications. With the development and application of technology, it further brings with it a range of challenges for end users, installers and consultants. Additionally, these challenges demand a complete clarity around how one can proactively use technology to manage a seamless integration of various security components.
