Video surveillance moves to IT

What new video skills does the IT staff need to have?

Graphic for video surveillance story
A recent survey conducted by Enterprise Security Group (on behalf of Axis Communications) says more IT departments are getting involved in video surveillance projects. As cameras move from analog over to IP-based systems, it makes sense that IT get involved, considering the increased bandwidth and storage demands that these cameras provide to the business. But in addition to those challenges come some other issues, including a lack of video skills needed by the IT groups.

In this Google Hangout video, I talked with Fredrik Nilsson, general manager of North America for Axis, about the survey results and how IT can handle this move towards video surveillance (as well as the notion that big data and analytics can help fund video projects).
