CMOS And CCD — Small Differences Along The Way From Light To A Signal
Historically, CCD (charged coupled device) sensors have
existed much longer than CMOS sensors, that is to say, for
more than 40 years. Due to constant improvement and
optimization over the years, CCD sensors today stand for
excellent image quality. In 2009, the American scientists
Willard Boyle and George E. Smith were awarded the
Nobel Prize for Physics for the invention of the CCD sensor.
Originally developed in 1969 for the storage of data, the
potential of the charge coupled device as a light sensitive
apparatus was soon realized.
Integrated And Networked Physical Security
A traditional security system is composed of a variety of subsystems such as video
surveillance, access control and intrusion detection alerts. By themselves, each of these
systems is a critical component of a sophisticated security infrastructure. But for the most
part, these platforms operate as separate components without the ability to communicate
with each other. This inability to share critical security information between devices and
platforms leads to missing data, which can result in security hazards and lapses.
Preserving Irreplaceable Video Evidence
There’s no margin for error when it comes to public safety. Metropolitan police departments all across the country are doing their best to deter criminal activity. When
it can’t be prevented, the agencies want to apprehend and help to successfully prosecute the perpetrators. With human resources stretched thin, video surveillance has become a
critical tool in the war on crime. Video surveillance puts thousands of extra “eyes” on the street, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Control Access And Protect Assets With Print-On-Demand Intelligent ID Cards
Fraud and theft are constant threats to any organization, and the protections put in place against malicious activities must constantly evolve. To solve this challenge, businesses are deploying multiple levels of security, of which access cards are a critical component.
