Vast improvements in video surveillance technology have led to a major increase in the number and types of cameras supported by video management systems. The increase in cameras has led to an explosion in the amount of available video data, and this influx of video has made it nearly impossible for security departments to efficiently process seemingly endless hours of video. More security managers are asking how they can improve investigations and monitoring without spending countless hours trying to find what they need.
Our series with Paul Boucherle, principal at Matterhorn Consulting LLC., aka the Swiss Sherpa, continues here with part 6! Paul will be providing lessons to help system integrators climb their sales mountains. If you missed Lesson #5: Bring the right equipment for Base Camp II, you can read it here.
Last month, you learned some guidelines as to what equipment you should bring to Base Camp II. As you ascend the Sales Mountain, you will have to consider the summit assault plan and part of that plan is knowing the "terrain" you’re going to be playing in.

Did you know that overheating may lead to the premature failure of your security network video recorder? Improper cooling and ventilation could affect all the components of your hybrid or network video recorder (HVR/NVR), from video cards to the main processor.
As temperatures increase with the onset of summer, security and IT managers should watch out for heat and other environmental conditions to maintain their security HVRs/NVRs in mint condition. Longterm exposure to heat, dust and even vibration will affect the proper operation of your recording devices. Make sure to add health monitoring software that will alert you when a component is out of operating specification. This software is typically included with advanced HVRs/NVRs.
To ensure long-lasting performance, download this free infographic to learn other ways you can optimize your HVR/NVR’s operating environment and protect your investment today.
