Global MSC Security to Host ‘Developing Smart Surveillance Operators’ event

The latest online event from Global MSC Security has been designed to help security managers understand how the latest video surveillance technology is enabling camera operators to improve how live incidents are managed. The free-to-attend live event will take place on Tuesday 16th March at 13:00 (GMT) and will include expert insight from Genetec, Hanwha Techwin and Bosch Security and Safety Systems. In addition to this, the former Surveillance Camera Commissioner and new Chief Privacy Officer at Corsight AI, Tony Porter QPM LLB, will join a panel of independent speakers, chaired by Consultant at Global MSC Security, David White.

Trained surveillance camera operators are very good at making the right judgement calls under pressure, but they need a clear operating picture. This is where the latest technology can help. The Global MSC Security event will demonstrate how operators can be automatically alerted to potentially suspicious or unusual activity. By presenting them with real-time insights, they can take the appropriate course of action at the right time, to mitigate or deescalate a situation.

“It is not realistic to expect an operator to concentrate on a video wall for long periods of time and detect the often subtle cues, or patterns of behaviour, that suggest an incident is taking place, or about to escalate,” explained Derek Maltby, Managing Director of Global MSC Security. “It is also true that many operators are not sure about what it is that they need to be looking for. To compound the problem, incidents may occur on cameras that do not have a live feed on the video wall.

“The direction of travel in both public and private sectors is towards smart surveillance, and many organisations already have the foundations in place through recent investments in IP-based systems,” continued Maltby. “However, it is also true that in most instances these same systems are vastly underutilised. This event is aimed at putting organisations on the right path, making sure they understand the true value and realise the full potential of what they have.”
