Depending on your needs, IBM can perform an initial security threat and vulnerability assessment, assist you in designing your Digital Video Surveillance solution, integrate the solution with your existing IT infrastructure, help you procure the necessary hardware and software, and provide solution support and long-term maintenance. IBM Digital Video Surveillance requires no tapes and can feature higher image quality than analog - reducing exposure from video degradation and misplaced tapes, and enhancing content availability. By making the transition to digital video, you can reduce maintenance and labor costs by automating the day-to-day capture, indexing and storage of video content, and can enable uninterrupted and automatic storage of video surveillance to disk. Because digital video is networked and accessible from virtually anywhere at any time, you can more effectively manage and monitor remote sites.

By integrating IBM Digital Video Surveillance into your corporate IT network and infrastructure, you can provide real-time access to critical security information to the people who need it. Innovative tools and analytics can provide automated real-time alerts and the ability to rapidly query captured video metadata for post-event analysis. By using a service-oriented architecture (SOA), IBM enables disparate applications to share data, which simplifies the integration process. This allows employees, regardless of location, to view and share live and archived video from virtually any site - improving collaboration and communication and helping to mitigate security risks.
