Property surveillance and processing of the footage is a major challenge, by which many homes, small and medium-sized enterprises and multinational corporations are affected. A solution which has to work with a wide range of organizations, calls for a system of great flexibility and scalability. For long there was no overarching method, however modern virtualization technologies can achieve sophisticated scaling, thus supporting all sorts of differently sized structures.
This paper presents an in-depth examination of existing camera systems, their problems, and their combination with present-day virtualization technologies. I will look into various motion detection methods, and their application in real-life environments, to measure the scalability and performance on a multi-camera system.
Finally, I determine that it is most definitely viable to combine these two very different technologies, and the union of virtualization and surveillance will probably be one of the most capable in the future.
