Video Archiving

Appears in the issue.

Geutebruck of Windhagen, Germany, has added the fading long-term memory (FLTM) software option to its CCTV platforms. Systems can retain high-quality video for long periods using less storage capacity by progressively reducing the frame rate of stored footage over time. For example, a store that faces the prospect of robbery, vandalism, and fraud—and retains a video record for 30 days—can store all its footage at 25 frames per second (fps) for the first three days, reduce it to 6.5 fps for the next four days, then store i-frames only (1 fps) for the remaining 23 days. In this example, the total storage per camera required is reduced from 1.3 terabytes to 290 gigabytes, and archive costs are lowered without affecting utility or security.
