Nowadays, video systems are an important component of security concepts on cruise liners and other ships. The various systems are now being increasingly consolidated into one single networked system, which provides new opportunities as well as challenges, e.g. in terms of data security.
It is not rarity to find in excess of a thousand cameras on the larger cruise liners. They are used for completely different purposes. Are installed inside and out, in passenger zones and in the engine room. They assist the captain with navigation and contribute to supplying passenger entertainment. This means there is a considerable difference between the requirements of the cameras. In any case, there is no single "ship camera".
One intention of video systems is the documentation of incidents and accidents to be ready for any liability claims that arise. This means, there are greater or smaller requirements on ensuring the ship is covered with video engineering, depending on the region of use and the nationality of the passengers.
As for comparable facilities on land, such as airports, shopping centres and hotels, cruise liners also require comparable security measures. But increasingly, the focus is also on organisational objectives, alongside video technology's classic purpose of protecting from crime. The optimisation of staff deployment in order to create the most comfortable surroundings for passengers is a significant objective. Queues should be avoided and, where required, a helping hand should always be ready. Video technology also helps with this.
