Four trends in the development of video surveillance system
From the current monitoring industry, remote real-time monitoring network system has evolved from the early single analog video surveillance system to DVR and other video monitoring system as the core, at the same time, unified front-end alarm, access control and other peripheral security system integrated network management system, the system highly integrated model has emerged. With the increasing demand of users for the monitoring and networking system, network resources continue to expand the development of the future will be more security and even internal control of the Third-party systems will be required to be included in the monitoring network system, and the system users will be from the existing security departments and some business units into security, internal control, business , inspectors and other relevant departments at all levels.
The trend of IP
The trend of video surveillance market from analog CCTV video system to more mature, proactive, network-based IP video will still be the mainstream of the future. The transformation from passive analog to network-based intelligent video Solutions has significantly enhanced the ability of video surveillance to detect vulnerabilities quickly and efficiently, as well as the ability to deliver video and data across the company or even to external agencies.
Network based IP video surveillance can more effectively deal with security threats, improve operational efficiency, and effectively control and save costs. This has always been the trend of IP conversion, but also reflects the customer hope that video data and other network data, as well as other types of network security data and corporate data integration, thereby creating a more comprehensive security system solutions.
End-to-end Complete Solution
Video surveillance Security market there are many market segments, market segments of users with vertical diversity of characteristics, based on the user's own company size, product range of different video surveillance security requirements are also different. As the market matures, how quickly does the end-to-end solution trend be popularized?
As we have seen in other industries, more and more companies are looking for a comprehensive solution for their security systems-a single, trustworthy supplier offering a full range of solutions, rather than purchasing fragmented solutions from multiple vendors. Because if you adopt the latter, users will end up with the challenge of consolidating different solutions, and they also face the burden of relying on multiple providers regardless of support, maintenance, or upgrades.
We've seen in the industry that customers view video surveillance as a solution rather than a product or technology. They will compare the overall benefits of the full solution, not necessarily the benefits of each component. Compared to the IP trend discussed earlier, although an end-to-end solution may sound counterintuitive, it is actually quite logical and comprehensive. As long as the End-to-end suite of solutions is based on a non proprietary standard and it platform, and the various components of the solution, such as video management software, encoders, and IP cameras, can be integrated with other vendors ' products.
Focus on it intelligence based customer service
One of the benefits of an open, standards-based architecture is that it can easily integrate with the enterprise's existing IT infrastructure and available commercial networks, servers, and storage technologies. These benefits drive vendors to provide users with different services and support, focusing not on "unpacking and then fixing", but also on network configuration, remote access, solution troubleshooting, and network monitoring tools.
This reflects the changing mindset and expectations of the client. Customer care is no longer just about how good the product is, but how well the vendor's partners are performing, what their employees ' it knowledge is, and how professional they are at supporting the solution in a networked environment.
The rise of Integrated intelligent video analysis
Intelligent video analysis often has the advantage of zeroing and automation, thus helping to simplify human resource-intensive operations.
A few years ago, when intelligent video analysis was introduced into the market, it felt like an independent market with huge growth potential. But as time passes, intelligent video Analytics has become a niche market and evolved into a powerful feature of end-to-end holistic solutions, and intelligent video analytics is bringing greater impact, business value and effectiveness. Tighter integration with a broader range of applications, and low prices as part of a full suite of solutions, are just the tip of the iceberg for all the eventual benefits. Video surveillance security market is experiencing a gratifying change. In meeting video security needs, we have seen a dramatic evolution from a single product to a "comprehensive solution" sale. This is not a change, but an evolution that takes years to evolve, and is reflected in the four major trends described above.
A better understanding of these trends and the changes they bring will help companies plan, identify, and find key criteria for success. Defining these trends also helps vendors and integrators improve and expand the solutions and support services they can offer to customers to better meet changing customer needs. Most importantly, these trends will serve as a catalyst to enhance business value while protecting life and property and data in the world.
