Getting the Infrastructure Right for Surveillance Systems

Editor’s Note: This webinar was originally webcast on February 17, 2016 and released publicly 90 days after the event.

The rising demands for capturing and managing video surveillance data are placing new pressures on state and local governments, law enforcement agencies, and education officials. The challenges go beyond the expanding costs of equipment, storage, software and management time. Officials must also lay the right foundation to scale their capabilities, improve performance and still remain flexible in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of surveillance tools.

Find out what state, local government and education IT leaders need to know, and what steps you can take to:

  • Improve performance and ROI on cameras-per-server for the dollars invested
  • Optimize and simplify the management of daily surveillance processing, including the integration of facial recognition, redaction and analysis software
  • Fortify reliability and dependability to reduce the risk of surveillance data retrieval failures

This webinar was brought to you by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel.
