Video surveillance to benefit smart city project



Keeping par with the need to build smart city, the need to have video-based surveillance to ensure security in public spaces has become imperative.

In 2016, Seagate, a US-based data storage company, released a report stating that Indian organisations use 249 cameras on average for video surveillance on their premises.

“The smart city initiative, where over 100 cities are to be developed for better connectivity and security, as well as the demand from the commercial sector are expected to drive India’s video surveillance market over the next six years. Video surveillance has been around for a while now, but in recent years, the technology has truly grown mainstream in India,” said Sameer Bhatia, Country Manager, India and SAARC, Seagate.

Seagate is closely working with the market leaders in the surveillance solution providers segment to develop best-in-class solutions that ensure customer data is safe and secure.

Increase in video data to support video analytics, growth of surveillance in the healthcare sector, rise of biometric applications and video management and Internet of Things (IoT) are some of the key trends that has the potential to transform the video surveillance industry in India.A?
