Video technology makes it possible to use video surveillance not only for security and safety, but for all kinds of uses to cost-effectively monitor operations for business optimization and process improvement.

Computer vision uses image processing algorithms to solve some of its tasks. The main difference between these two approaches are the goals (not the methods used). If the goal is to emulate human vision, like object recognition, defect detection or automatic driving, then it may be called computer vision.
Image processing is, as its name implies, all about the processing of images. Both the input and the output are images. Methods frequently used in image processing are: filtering, noise removal, edge detection, color processing and so forth. Image processing methods are harnessed for achieving tasks of computer vision.Video Surveillance
software enables new level of home security & surveillance.
Artificial intelligence is giving surveillance cameras digital brains to match their eyes, letting them analyze live video with no humans necessary. This could be good news for public safety, helping police and first responders more easily spot crimes and accidents and have a range of scientific and industrial applications. But it also raises serious questions about the future of privacy and poses novel risks to social justice.
