Shipping is an industry with complex transactions over multiple locations and high expectations for the process to be carried out perfectly. That’s why video surveillance is a critical component for loss prevention and quality control.
One benefit of implementing the new surveillance system was how it eliminated “blind spots” within stores, such as inside a walk-in beer cooler, which made it easy to prevent theft and catch thieves, according to Harrison.
Visual information is no longer the only — and perhaps not even the primary — component of a video surveillance system. Images are still valuable, but it is the data inherent within them that provides for new applications and value. A camera is now a computer with a lens. Video once provided LP with extra eyes. Now it also offers brains.
There may be no better symbol of the nation’s modern, high-tech military as its fleet of predator drones. So it surely caused a few red faces at the Pentagon when it was discovered that insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq had used $26 software to intercept live video feeds from the unmanned planes.
