Green Surveillance

Rising energy costs and environmental concerns are compelling many organizations to embark on “green” initiatives in an effort to optimize their computing environments and reduce costs.

Green IT becomes even more important when video surveillance is taken into consideration. With the recent proliferation of CCTV, energy consumption and server usage required for video surveillance has increased dramatically, resulting in higher total cost of ownership (TCO).

Video surveillance energy consumption is largely attributed to the electrical power required to operate the many servers that are running the cameras and storing vast amounts of recorded video. However, as video surveillance transitions from proprietary “black box” DVR deployments towards software based solutions, video becomes both greener and leaner.

Simply put, IP-Surveillance can lead to a greener environment and increased operational efficiency through reduced energy costs, increased server capacity utilization and higher scalability and availability as compared to analog CCTV deployments.

More information about Green Surveillance can be found in the White Paper.

Sincerely,

Justin Schorn
VP Product Development
Aimetis Corp.
