Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 13, 2013

  • Cost - Commoditization or Aggressive Competitors?
  • Image Quality - WDR and Low Light
  • VMS Enabled Cameras - Replacing VMS Server Software?
  • Panoramic Cameras - Replacing PTZs?

Additionally, we also examine video analytics on cameras and super high resolution cameras, which are secondary drivers.
