Video surveillance is routinely used in the banking segment for many years. It may seem, therefore, that little can be added to the use of video in these institutions. However, the advances and innovations in IP video segment allow providing concrete solutions to specific problems of banking. Generically, the IP video processing makes it capable of video surveillance systems reagents, which always working on material recorded in other real-time and even predictive systems (that anticipate incidents), which from the point of view of safety is highly recommended.
Regarding security applications, IP cameras offer many performance improvements over their analog predecessors. For example, the network offered resolutions in high definition (HDTV) and even uplifting performance megapixel facing the identification of persons and actions when working with video. Using multimegapixel resolutions multiview options appear that allow a single camera offers multiple video streams as if it were several, each with resolution and number of images per second different.
One of the recent advances in IP camera technology is related to the so-called Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). This is a feature designed to provide clear images even in backlit conditions where the intensity of illumination can vary excessively, or when there are two areas, a very bright and a very dark at the same time in the same field vision. WDR enables the capture and display of both bright and dark areas of the same image, so that you can see details in both areas, bright areas are not saturated and are not pure dark ” shadows “. The cameras have this feature are ideal for areas where ATMs are installed, and partly come to respond to the demands of bank security specialists.
For branches there is a possibility “revolutionary”, it is recording in the cloud, or hosting, which eliminates the presence of a local engraver (in relation to: cost, installation, space, maintenance, etc.) In favor of recording in a data center, which is accessed through the Internet for viewing or downloading of recordings. As this is very dependent on the bandwidth available in the agencies, their use is suitable for applications with few cameras (1-4) per branch.
