Video surveillance techniques are evolving from static and passive cameras documenting events to dynamic and preventive networks. Two trends lead this change: the shift towards wireless IP systems and the emergence of video analytics. The former allows for flexible networks, massive customization whereas the later comes to solve the problem of increase network complexity. This evolution brings however new threats for individual freedoms, challenging in particular the application of data protection safeguards. This paper takes the prototype developed by DYVINE project as example for the next generation of video surveillance networks and analyses its potential threats from a data protection standpoint.
