Infrarail seminars: From Forensic to Real-time Surveillance

On Wednesday 2 May at 15:10, David Thomasson, Business Development Manager at Axis Communications will be presenting ‘From Forensic to Real-time Surveillance’ at Infrarail.

Traditionally, video from analogue security cameras is used forensically by viewing recordings of incidents after they have occurred.

Now, with a network video solution, real-time video from vehicles, stations and infrastructure can be viewed from any authorised location connected to the network, including via the internet and wirelessly.

Response resources can access live images via hand-held devices so they know exactly what to expect upon arrival and can prepare the appropriate response as the scene develops.

At the same time, the higher resolution available with network video cameras offers the option of greatly reducing the number of cameras required, resulting in tremendous saving on installation, maintenance and ongoing power supply costs.

David Thomasson of Axis Communications will go through this developing technology, look at the pros and cons, and give some examples of recent successful installations.

Delegates will hear first-hand how a modern installation can give enhanced results, and provide more information, without costing the earth.
