The author reflects on the future of video surveillance on the implementation of the H.264 compression standard in the U.S. He cites that the use of video compression standard allows more video storage, faster video searcher and easy sharing of video. He says that the trend affecting the future of video surveillance also affects all of the physical security industry.
