While not every hardware failure is as dramatic as that one, consequences of IT hardware failure here on earth can be “astronomical” as well — lost productivity and revenue, expensive repairs and even legal or contractual liabilities being among them. Not only are video hardware failures costly, but they are also common when the hardware is not purpose-built.
Given the 24x7x365 nature of business today, uptime and availability of video surveillance systems play an important role in determining the success of many organizations. Yet downtime happens, its reasons vary from sudden hardware failure to human error. When a system goes down, it can deny access to mission-critical video, leading to loss of safety, productivity, and efficiency.
Using mechanical switches to call up security cameras, engage intercoms or open doors? It may seem cumbersome and risky, but limited budgets force many corrections facilities to continue using analog systems. The good news is that it’s possible to make incremental moves forward toward Internet protocol (IP)-based cameras, digital video management software, and video appliances. But only a system with true open architecture can deliver a total lower cost of ownership and future scalability.
