Significantly Enhancing Financial Services Security

Significantly Enhancing Financial Services Security

Financial services institutions continually face risk of theft, both from external sources and from within. In addition to their own incentive to apprehend thieves, financial services institutions also are required to meet official guidelines for security, which include making available high-quality video surveillance recordings covering a certain number of days prior to a robbery.

To provide sufficient recording time as well as high-resolution/high-frame-rate images, financial institutions must, for example, deploy high-capacity DVRs solving also problems like lack of detail of targets, inconsistent clarity in bright or low light, or high-contrast lighting situations as well as color inaccuracies in varying lighting conditions.

In addition, the variability of physical layout from one branch to another, and of light throughout the day, makes it difficult to achieve consistent video image quality without frequent adjustments to camera settings.
