How Enhanced Video Surveillance Boosts Manufacturing

Enhanced video surveillance technologies promise to revolutionize the efficiency and effectiveness of manufacturing environments. These solutions combine cutting-edge video cameras, storage and management hardware with modern machine learning and analytics technology to provide organizations with hindsight, insight and foresight into their operations. The addition of video analytics provides the ability to automatically analyze, detect and trigger alerts on events seen by cameras in real time.

Manufacturers are increasingly turning to the Internet of Things (IoT) to provide the steady flow of data required to make crucial business decisions in real time. Enhanced video surveillance technology adds another important data source to these monitoring systems, allowing organizations to supplement traditional physical security measures as well as achieve goals previously unachievable through video surveillance.

These include preventive worker safety alerts and the improvement of operational processes, allowing plant managers to proactively intervene. Enhanced video surveillance provides manufacturers with the ability to actively monitor their factory floor and quickly act upon that information to improve the bottom line.
