Commercial Video Surveillance
The majority of video surveillance system users in the world today apply them in a very similar fashion as above. The systems that have been provided are meant on most part to recover recorded imagery after an incident has occured. But most of these purchasers would like to have the above quality of video recovered from their systems, but can't. In these small commercial facilities the proprieter makes all the decisions. They will "educate" themself on variety of different products, read their 3rd-5th proposal, they now realize that the system cost of their system is well out of their means, they fold and select the lowest cost provider.
For small operations a successful video surveillance system must be well designed, well selected and well executed to be able to get the best value out their phased-in investment.
Industrial Video Surveillance
Video surveillance systems used in industrial processes allow operators and their equipment to be more productive. The operator has the ability to see all crital points of the operation from a central command control station. When an operator recognizes that a process is in jeapardy, they can quickly shut it down to facilitate a repair. The cost of a minor shut down is far less than that of a catastrophic failure. Remote surveillance reduces down time which is critical to the operations bottom line. Critical to industrial video surveillance is the design and selection of equipment for the working environment.
