Tamper-Proof Video Security System    

A de-centralized system for storing replicated security video footage on plurality of cameras, protective footage from deliberate or accidental destruction


A video security system becomes itself a target for potential attackers, in order to destroy or remove the evidentiary video footage from the site during an attack. The server room where security video servers are located is known to insiders and can be accessed. Sending video footage to a remote video server is susceptible to attack by way of cutting the main communications cable and preventing transmission of video evidence prior to the attack.

The invention discloses a system that distributes replicated video footage on solid-state storage embedded in each of the cameras, making the evidentiary video footage virtually indistructable.

Primary Application of the Technology

Video surveillance systems protecting the perimeter and premises of high-value sites, where video footage is critical for incident investigation and prosecution, and where the video evidence itself is likely to become a target.

Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 348: Television

Generating, processing, transmitting or transiently displaying a sequence of images, either locally or remotely, in which the local light variations composing the images may change with time.

Subclass 143: Observation of or from a specific location (e.g., surveillance)

Class 386: Television Signal Processing For Dynamic Recording Or Reproducing

Apparatus and corresponding processes for processing a sequence of images, in which the light variation composing the images may change with time for dynamic recording or reproducing of the sequence of images. The processing involves the following steps: (a) Receiving a sequence of images from a local (e.g., camera, etc.) or remote source (e.g. broadcasting station, satellite, cable, etc.); (b) Converting the received sequence of images into a form suitable for dynamic storage, which form may or may not be reproduced later; or (c) Converting retrieved information from a dynamic storage medium into a sequence of images.
