The Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG) provides one of the most modern transport systems in the world. More than 500 million passengers travel every year via bus, tram and six subway lines over a network of 95 kilometers with 100 stations and nearly 580 subway cars.

Eyewatch, a company belonging to the Deister Electronic Group, had a truly good idea for a new product and, with it, blurred the distinction between previously separate technologies. The motivation to develop it was the realization that conventional cameras and video systems create enormous amounts of image material in a short time. If this could be pre-sorted, ignoring all the uninteresting stuff, there would be great savings in storage capacity and therefore also investment.

Of the estimated 40 million surveillance cameras installed around the world today, approximately 95 percent of them are analog. Considering that the average lifespan of those cameras is five to seven years, much of that technology is still in good working condition. So for businesses considering an upgrade to newer network technology, there are sound fiscal reasons for wanting to incorporate existing analog cameras in their migration strategy.
