“Digital One is a progressive new approach to video security and surveillance systems operation that embodies both existing analog systems products and new digital IP-based systems products,” Panasonic Vice President Frank Abram said in a statement. “It is an all-encompassing philosophy toward product development and systems integration.” Another Digital One goal is to provide end users with cost-efficient ways to upgrade their systems. The initiative is an outgrowth of Panasonic’s Networking Initiative that works to extend the scope of networked devices to include existing analog-based systems.
