Video technology will revolutionize our lives by 2030.

Video technology have consistently improved society in subtle and obvious way. Modern video cameras are able to instantly identify stolen license plates and alert police to safety and security. Video technology can also be used to create heat maps that show how certain products perform in stores, to automate access to buildings, etc.

The video technology industry continues to evolve and innovate in order to meet our modern needs. Video technology will revolutionize the way we live, work, and play. By 2030, we will enjoy exponential advances in video technology that will positively improve our cities, healthcare system and education system, as well as the hospitality industry.

There is often confusion and ambiguity surrounding the constant evolution of technology. People can be more confused than they are informed by terminology such as the “internet” or machine-learning “. It can be difficult to grasp the benefits of technology advances. With this in mind, here are a few of the most promising ways that video technology will improve society by 2030 and beyond:

Smart cities: Going greener

Today, 55% of the world’s population live in cities. By 2050, nearly seven out of 10 people in the world will live in urban areas. A larger population means a longer commute in many cities — on average, commutes have increased by 20% since 1980 in U.S. cities, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. While many smart cities use video cameras to monitor traffic, future video technology will allow for more control and management of traffic and reduce air pollution.

Many smart cities are exploring the concept for a walkable city : by using urban design to connect homes, work places, schools, and retail stores along with easy access routes for bike and pedestrian use. This green solution could improve air quality, people’s health, and reduce congestion.

City planners will use video technology to drive urban development. City administrators will use analytics to track how many people are using city parks and other areas that could become pedestrian byways. Video cameras can be used to identify revitalization areas, such as underground parking structures to make way for more walkable pathways. Video technology will increase walking and travel ease, as well as reduce pollution and traffic.

Healthcare: Video surgeries improve outcomes and mitigate risks

Hospitals around the world face unique security challenges in order to keep their facilities safe, from parking lots to emergency room.

Today’s hospital security systems use surveillance video technology to protect patients and property. The future hospitals will use video technology to provide precision remote surgery. Robotic surgical technology and advanced communication systems will allow surgeons to connect across the country, resulting in better outcomes. The result is that the best surgeons can be matched with patients according to their needs and will operate from anywhere.

After the surgery, the surgeon will conduct remote rounds via an app. This allows the surgeon to communicate with the patient in recovery and monitor his/her vitals. Precision robotic surgery performed by skilled surgeons may result in shorter hospital stays and/or less readmissions. Video technology can dramatically improve the outcome for major medical events, by pairing the most qualified medical professionals with the patients most in need.

Additionally cameras in remote surgery rooms will be integrated into video management software to allow it to record operating procedures, and collect data during surgery. The detailed recording can be used by the hospital to train surgeons and staff in the operating room.

Education: Supporting positive behavior in the classroom

Schools today are adopting a holistic approach to security. They create an environment in which safety and security tools operate in real-time via connected networks. Data is shared with local law enforcement to improve decision making and response to emergencies. Video technology of the future may offer more than safety to students. It could also promote positive behavior and improve academic outcomes.

Positive behavior support is a proactive approach that schools use to improve school safety and improve behavior. This framework is geared towards prevention and not punishment. It uses universal behavior support to improve school safety and behavior. The process of creating support structures in classrooms is time-consuming because teachers have to manually record and collect data.

Video technology is able to reduce data collection by automatically capturing video data from classrooms. Teachers and staff can identify problem behavior and adjust educational or behavioral support to improve student performance on tests and in general.

Ultimately, school administrators can use video technology to improve academic performance as well as reduce bullying and drug and alcohol abuse.

Hospitality: VIP service and sustainability through video technology

Many hotels use license plate recognition (LPR), video analytics, motion detection and access control to monitor and prevent suspicious behavior. But in 10 years or so, these safety tools will be used for a full VIP experience to delight and protect guests.

In the future, LPR will identify the vehicle of rewards program guests and notify hotel staff to ensure that the valet team greets them by name. This particular guest has already consented to biometrics to ensure seamless check-in/check-out. Facial recognition validates their identity and allows access control to recognize and speak to their phone to open the hotel suite doors as they approach. The virtual assistant, which is integrated with video technology, greets the VIP and asks if they’d like their favorite drink delivered to their room by a robot.

This technology can do more than just improve customer service and convenience. The internet of things (IoT), which will enable hotel staff to be alerted to trash and recycling bins, will allow them to monitor their water consumption and temperature. Motion detectors will turn off lights and run water to conserve energy, and send data to the video management software. These data will be used to improve sustainability practices at the hotel.

Companies are embedding video technology to optimize their operations

Video technology will make our society a better place to live, as it evolves and advances. Video technology is being used by many companies all over the globe in ways that extend beyond security. Powered by data-driven video management software with smart video analytics, business leaders are currently using video technology to optimize processes at every level. Video technology helps business leaders and government officials run their businesses efficiently, remotely or in-person.

Business leaders will use video technology in the future to monitor and track air quality, and to reduce waste and pollution. Video technology will be used in parking lots with limited space to maximize parking, reduce congestion, and improve vehicle flow. They will use it to automate tedious manual processes by quickly gathering and processing video data and applying predictive problem solving.

Video technology is set to revolutionize the way we live, work and play. It will continue to improve and become more integrated into our daily lives over the next ten years.

FIFA 23 lets you turn off commentary pointing out how bad you are

FIFA 23 lets you turn off commentary pointing out how bad you are

FIFA 23 might be the best game soccer game yet for terrible sports fans, as it lets you turn off commentary that criticizes your bad playing.

Now that the early access FIFA 23 release time has passed, EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can hop into the game ahead of its full release. But as Eurogamer (opens in new tab) spotted, they’ll find a peculiar option waiting for them.

FIFA 23 includes a toggle to turn off ‘Critical Commentary’. The setting lets you silence all negative in-match comments made about your technique, so you can protect your precious ego even when you miss an open goal or commit an obvious foul. The more positive commentary won’t be affected. 

Spare your feelings

The feature looks tailored toward children and new players, who don’t want to have their confidence wrecked within mere minutes of picking up the controller. But even experienced players who just so happen to be terrible at the game might benefit.

It’s not perfect, though. According to Eurogamer, the feature didn’t seem to work during a FIFA Ultimate Team Division Rivals match, with critical comments slipping through the filter. Still, who hasn’t benefited from a light grilling every now and then?

Polite commentary isn’t the only new addition in FIFA 23. It’s the first game in the series to include women’s club football teams, and fancy overhauled animations that take advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S’s new-gen hardware. EA will be hoping to end on a high, as FIFA 23 will be the last of its soccer games to release with the official FIFA licence.

If disabling critical commentary doesn’t improve your soccer skills, maybe building a squad of Marvel superheroes will. Although you might not do much better with Ted Lasso wandering the pitch.

FIFA 23 is set to fully release this Friday, September 30.

Google Pixel 7 price leak suggests Google is totally out of touch

Google Pixel 7 price leak suggests Google is totally out of touch

We’re starting to hear more and more Google Pixel 7 leaks, with the launch of the phone just a week away, but tech fans might be getting a lot of déjà vu, with the leaks all listing near-identical specs to what we heard about the Pixel 6 a year ago.

It sounds like the new phones – a successor to the Pixel 6 Pro is also expected – could be very similar to their 2021 predecessors. And a new price leak has suggested that the phones’ costs could be the same too, as a Twitter user spotted the Pixel 7 briefly listed on Amazon (before being promptly taken down, of course).

According to these listings, the Pixel 7 will cost $599 while the Pixel 7 Pro will cost $899, both of which are identical to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro starting prices. The leak doesn’t include any other region prices, but in the UK the current models cost £599 and £849, while in Australia they went for AU$999 and AU$1,299.

So it sounds like Google is planning on retaining the same prices for its new phones as it sold the old ones for, a move which doesn’t make much sense.


Analysis: same price, new world

Google’s choice to keep the same price points is a little curious when you consider that the specs leaks suggest these phones are virtually unchanged from their predecessors. You’re buying year-old tech for the same price as before.

Do bear in mind that the price of tech generally lowers over time, so you can readily pick up a cheaper Pixel 6 or 6 Pro right now, and after the launch of the new ones, the older models will very likely get even cheaper.

But there’s another key factor to consider in the price: $599 might be the same number in 2022 as it was in 2021, but with the changing global climate, like wars and flailing currencies and cost of living crises, it’s a very different amount of money.

Some people just won’t be willing to shell out the amount this year, that they may have been able to last year. But this speaks to a wider issue in consumer tech.

Google isn’t the only tech company to completely neglect the challenging global climate when pricing its gadgets: Samsung is still releasing super-pricey folding phones, and the iPhone 14 is, for some incomprehensible reason, even pricier than the iPhone 13 in some regions. 

Too few brands are actually catering to the tough economic times many are facing right now, with companies increasing the price of their premium offerings to counter rising costs, instead of just designing more affordable alternatives to flagships.

These high and rising prices suggest that companies are totally out of touch with their buyers, and don’t understand the economic hardship troubling many.

We’ll have to reach a breaking point sooner or later, either with brands finally clueing into the fact that they need to release cheaper phones, or with customers voting with their wallets by sticking to second-hand or refurbished devices. But until then, you can buy the best cheap phones to show that cost is important to you.
