Since the terrorist attacks of 9-11 and the Madrid and London train bombings, security measures have been taking place everywhere. The fastest-growing market segment however, has been the government sector, which can be broken down into city halls, court buildings and correctional facilities, customs and immigration offices, public safety, streets/intersections, and military. The government has the biggest task in providing protection to the public on all levels.
It’s important that when something happens the authorities are able to bring a solution on time and are able to register the events with enough resolution to clearly identify suspects and such. The need for high resolution, color fidelity, and frame rate is acute for surveillance purposes to ensure that the quality of the video output is of an acceptable standard that can be used both for preventative surveillance as well as for evidence purposes. Video surveillance cameras with proper advance notification of their use can act as a strong deterrence to avoid acts of vandalism.
