Back in 1976 - Years before IBM released itsS Personal Computer to the masses and helped push along a technological revolution that's changed the way people around the work work communicate and access information - a handful of tech excutives made some bold predications in a series of interviews with U.S News. Murray Turoff, a computer science professor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, ventured that owners of personal computers would one day be able to make "conference" calls and hold virtual meetings, cutting, down on the need for business travel and allowing employees to work from home. IBM's mid-2000s departure from a personal computer production industry it helped ioneer is increasingly looking like a shrewd move as demand for traditional desktops continues to wane in the face of laptops, tablets, mobile phones and wearable technology. Research outfit Gartner in July estimated global PC shipments declined in April, May and June for the seventh consecutive quarter of contraction.
According to the debate of whether surveillance cameras should be put in public areas, like schools, stores, libraries, airports, bars and clubs, some individuals feel more secure with the cameras, while other citizens and privacy advocates feel nervous about the idea of someone warching them every time they are out in public When we install a home security camera, we gain increased house safety. Just like that, the main benefit of surveillance cameras in public spaces is also the increase of public safety. Public surveillance cameras help you stay safe while clubbing shopping, and travelling. Additionally, crimes can be deterred before they even in some cases. If a suspicious individual or individuals or items are seen in an area, the appropriate authorities can be contacted to move into the area before any damage is done or any crime is committed. Moreover, any people in the area can be cleared as a precaution.
Video surveillance systems stated out as 100-percent analog systems and are gradually becoming digital. Today's systems, using network cameras and PC (personal computer) severs for video recording in a fully digital system, have come a long way from the early analog tube cameras, which were connected to a VCR (videocassette recorder). In between the fully analog and fully digital systems, there are several solutions that are partly digital, that is, systems that incorporate both digital and analog devices. This has led to some confusion in the video surveillance industry today, as some talk about a "digital" system to mean analog cameras that connect to a DVR ( digital video recorder), whereas others use the term to describe a network video system with network cameras. Although there are digital components in both systems, there are some very important distinctions to make between each of the systems Although DVR's provided great improvements over VCRs, they also had some inherent downsides. The DVR was burdened with many tasks such as the digitization of video from all cameras, video compression, recording, and networking. Additionally, it was a "black box. solution, that is, proprietary hardware with preloaded software, which often forced the end user to source spare parts from one manufacture, making maintenance and upgrading expensive.
