How CCTV OEMs increase video data capacity and reduce costs

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) working in CCTV and security are using Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OEM Solutions to expand data storage capacity, apply analytics and lower costs.

The rise in global security threats has increased the demand for advanced video surveillance technologies that store and analyse large amounts of video data. According to research from industry analyst IHS Markit, the number of surveillance cameras to be shipped globally in 2018 is 130 million. To put that into perspective, it was fewer than 10 million in 2006. Older storage systems, video cameras and servers are simply not designed to support the needs of today’s CCTV industry.

Surveillance providers are demanding more storage capabilities from OEMs due to the growing volume of video data they need to store, and the ever-higher definition formats it’s captured in. New data and compliance laws also require these surveillance companies to retain video data for longer periods of time.

These growing collections of data are also essential to businesses that want to drive value from predictive analytics. According to research firm MarketsandMarkets, the video analytics market alone is expected to grow to $8.5 billion USD by 2023.

To benefit from the growing security landscape, leading security surveillance OEMs are choosing to partner with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OEM Solutions. By integrating HPE OEM Solutions’ hybrid cloud technologies into their surveillance platforms, security OEMs can create new solutions that help companies increase video data capacity and leverage analytics, all while lowering costs.

Providing cost-effective predictive analytics

While security headlines often focus on cyberthreats, physical threats such as fire, theft and crowded gatherings are also increasing. For CUDO Communication, which specialises in state-of-the-art intelligent video surveillance, helping customers develop predictive analytic capabilities is paramount.

Their IntelliVIX software analyses video signals in real-time to enable immediate threat response. This technology is run on HPE OEM Solutions servers which are purpose-built for high-performance computing and big data analytics. As a result, CUDO customers can rapidly analyse massive volumes of CCTV footage to meet their security objectives at a lower total cost of ownership.

Optimising server performance and reducing complexity

Surveillance solutions developer Venzo Secure required a partner to help them reduce the complexity of technology implementation while lowering costs.

With the understanding that video surveillance solutions are not one size fits all, Venzo needs to deliver customized state-of-the-art platforms optimally configured for each individual deployment. That’s why Venzo integrated HPE OEM Solutions servers that can be modified to meet the needs of each installation.

Being able to tailor solutions, backed by 24×7 onsite support, for specific customer needs has helped reduce costs by delivering the right server platform for each specific implementation. Venzo customers benefit from a 30 per cent increase in server performance.

As security surveillance providers expand into new markets, CCTV solution provider Vista needs to ensure on time deliveries and 24×7 support for customers all over the world, 365 days of the year.

Vista regards the reliability of their technology as a top priority. ‘If a customer has a problem with recording or accessing the video, it puts the entire purpose of our solution into jeopardy,’ said Gary Rowdan, Divisional Director at Vista.

HPE OEM Solutions offers global logistics and support to assure a consistent customer experience. This extensive supply chain and service network enables OEMs to expand their businesses across the globe at a reduced risk.

To keep up with the rapidly evolving security surveillance industry throughout the world, OEMs need to provide advanced real-time analytic capabilities, superior scalability and global support that meets the unique needs of every customer. Choosing a partner with the experience, portfolio and expertise to help deliver this package can make the difference between short-lived progress and long-lasting success.
