The video surveillance market has undergone a drastic change overa past decade. The technological advancement and dropping in the cost of the equipment allows the monitoring to be done in the most efficient way. A surveillance camera is becoming aneffective tool for the government agencies for discouraging crime. The shift from analog cameras to IP cameras, which offer high resolution alongwith better imagequality,is a major driver in this surveillance market. The market is likely to witness a large growth in IP video surveillance by 2018. The analog business is still efficient in many countries like China, and Philippines;but IP is the new trend with a lot of potential; and it is likely that the increased adoption of IP cameras will back off the analog cameras sales/market in future.
A large number of cameras are used in IP video surveillance systems, which are bound to generate the need for more storage. The migration from analog to IP has more than doubled theneed forstorage capacity. Rising expectation for better picture quality will, further, lead to the requirement formore memory space. Much of the storage space is wasted as a result of storing video without analysis and there will be an increased requirement for storage due to high frame rate of the image.This issue can be overcome up to a limit by the usage of edge storage and video analytics, which analyzes and stores video at a fixed frame rate and resolution. More advance approaches used by video analytics includes applications/features like ‘motion detection’, in which the video surveillance systems will stream only when an event occurs. Another major solution to this storage issue is the use of edge storage, where a hard drive or memory cardsare used in cameras, for storing video, and this video content is not sent from the camera unless the user wants to view the recorded video. However,still, the requirement for storage remains unresolved due to the demand for better picture quality and cost. Another unsolved problem is the vandalizing of video surveillance systems by criminals or thieves. The burglars are well aware of the methods and they can easily damage the this system.
The video surveillance systems and service market is considered to have great potential due to the intelligent video surveillance and hosted video solutions. The use of VSaaS platform, where the cloud can be deployed to either a hosted or managed cloud with the existing IP or analog camera, will be beneficial tosmall and medium scale business people because it eliminate Network Video Recorder (NVR) expenses. The intelligent video surveillance is used in smart applications to detect emergency events like traffic accidents, illegal entry and; subsequently, process it immediately to the concerned response group. Another major opportunity is the use of video analytics in retail applications. The retail video analytics help in analyzing live captured video to identify the area forimprovement in various operations in retail segments. This surveillance is extremely important for ensuring safety in areas like casinos, hospitality, parks, and restaurants.
