Video is one of the most powerful sensors for delivering actionable, real-time information to Smart City applications – and in case of public safety, not only every single second but every single video image counts.

In this fireside chat, Genetec and Sensity/Verizon will explore how video and IoT are transforming urban services, enhancing citizen experience and improving public safety for future and existing smart cities.
