Here's a delicious example of IP surveillance direct from Naples, Italy. A family-owned pizza place called La Focaccia has installed a new IP-based surveillance system featuring ACTi network cameras.

Tampa Bay Downs, the self-proclaimed "only thoroughbred racetrack on Florida's west coast," recently had to upgrade it video surveillance system in order to meet new Florida regulations for electronic surveillance in gaming facilities. The key to the upgrade was transitioning from an analog solution to an IP-based digital system to monitor the facility's 30-table Silks Poker Room. Previously, the analog CCTV cameras in the poker room transmitted footage to digital video recorders (DVRs), but the system only provided moderate resolution and offered very little in the way of scalability or upgrade potential.
