In the not so distant future

Category : General 4K UHD

we can easily envision a world controlled by AI Megasystems which many have predicted will rule the world. In that twisted landscape video surveillance, security cameras and audio monitoring would become the eyes and ears for the machines controlling the environment. Picturing rebellious humans destroying surveillance cameras and monitoring devices is not so far-fetched.  


Tracking traffic patterns for vehicles and pedestrians will become commonplace utilizing analytics. Some industry analyst even theorized that by 2026 most humans in large cities will be sharing automatic vehicles to get around. In all of these rolls, video surveillance will play the principal aspect of monitoring and remote control.

Quality questions on UHD CCTV

The most common question heard today by security professionals has to be “what is the best resolution available?”

This is a very difficult question to answer based on the fact that budgetary concerns are a massive limitation for most applications.

However, for those that have unlimited budgets there are many levels of ultra megapixel cameras available, Even some going beyond the 20 megapixel range.

For UHD 4K systems, we return to the same limitations as legacy analog or IP. Many levels of quality exist within the 4K resolution arena. There are cameras available on the market for under $400 which are rated at 4K (8 megapixel) yet some of the nicest ones we’ve seen are well over $1000 each. So what makes the difference? The answer could be something as simple as the lens. Much like camera prices, there are many levels of quality and prices for lenses that are rated UHD. Once again we have seen prices ranging from $50 up to $600 for a single fixed lens. Like everything else in life, you get what you pay for. Eve true 4K resolution is what you desire, be prepared to shell out a substantial amount of money to get real 4kcctv.

4K TVs are coming! Soon we will have movies in higher resolution than ever. But what about security? Fact is, the surveillance industry has been using 4K plus resolution for many years. Megapixel cameras ranging in the 8. 10, 12, and even 16MP have been used in many applications worldwide.

What we really need is the mass manufacturing of 4K cameras and recorders for surveillance. This will come in due time… right after 720P, 1080P and 5MP IP cameras and HD-SDI cameras. Regardless of how you get the signal from the camera to the recorder, HD is the new standard for security recording and evidence collection.

Hacked Security cameras from Engadget News

Increase Use Of CCTV For Traffic Fines Raises £300 Million

Closed-circuit security cameras are supposed to make you safer, but some malware is turning them into weapons. Researchers at Incapsula have discovered code that turned about 900 Linux-based CCTV cameras into a botnet, which promptly bombarded an unnamed “large cloud service” that serves millions of people. The intruders compromised cameras from multiple brands, all of which had lax out-of-the-box security — in some cases, they’d been hacked by more than one person.

The botnet conducted a “run of the mill” denial of service attack, and it would be relatively easy to thwart the attackers with a bit of caution. However, it underscores the potential dangers of security cameras. There are millions of connected cams worldwide, many of which likely weren’t installed properly — and it’d be trivial to use those cameras to spy on people. Until companies either ship more secure cameras or tell their customers how to protect themselves, these surveillance systems will likely represent an ongoing risk.
