Over 50% of video surveillance cameras will be Megapixel and HD by 2014
August 25, 2010 // Julien Happich
The growth and adoption of megapixel and high definition (HD) video surveillance equipment is one of the key trends shaping the video surveillance market towards 2014. According to IMS Research's latest report, “The World Market for CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment – 2010 Edition”, by 2014 more than 50% of all network cameras shipped will be HD or megapixel resolution.
One of the main benefits of network security cameras has been the availability of megapixel (and more recently HD) resolutions, a feature that until recently analogue video surveillance products had been unable to offer. However, recent developments from the HDcctv Alliance, the organisation responsible for developing the high definition over coax standard (based on the industry HD-SDI broadcast standard), could see end-users given a greater choice when specifying megapixel and HD surveillance requirements.
Whilst a high proportion of new, enterprise-class projects are implementing network video security, existing video surveillance installations, which are predominantly analogue, still represent a majority of the installed base. It is this sector of the market which will be most interesting in the coming years; will customers reuse their existing analogue infrastructure and invest in HDcctv, transition to network security cameras, or adopt a hybrid system?
There appears to be little disagreement between protagonists of high definition video surveillance that video surveillance systems are transitioning from analogue video to networked systems; however, there is discord regarding the system topology needed to achieve this. For customers looking to capture high definition and megapixel video, this can be done using a pure network video solution or by using an HDcctv analogue video surveillance solution that brings the data onto the network using an Ethernet enabled DVR.All news
