Opinions On Intelligent Video: Feared Obsolesence?

Continuing our discussion of intelligent video.

Point Three: I don’t think most organizations are concerned that video
surveillance hardware and software purchased today will be rendered obsolete by
new technology in the future. This sort of idea is very common in information technology (IT) but not prevalent in physical security. That
is likely because most purchases are thought in terms of 10- or 20-year
amortization and are largely hardware based. Also, most video surveillance
systems are still quite proprietary — built with limited possibility for
integration. That has a way of delaying obsolesence, since the customer doesn’t
see how new technologies are superior. Basically, the customer doesn’t even try
to plug newer technologies into older architectures, so the myth of "good
enough" can be maintained.
