Highlight

Video surveillance systems, which have been heading for digital formats and higher image quality along with a switch from analog cameras to network ones for the purposes of crime prevention, disaster response, anti-terrorist measures, and tighter internal control are expanding in terms of their introduction and use at enterprises and public facilities. They are also spreading into a wide range of other business areas through the utilization of video content analysis and various databases. Moreover, activity involving the solving of management issues, such as operational efficiency or quality of product improvement, has been initiated recently in the industrial field with the progress of IoT technology, accordingly. In addition to security purposes, Hitachi is also proposing plant surveillance video for things such as product quality improvement and plant safety by making use of image sensing for analyzing and recognizing humans, vehicles, and other objects from surveillance video.
