Indeed integration of Video, ACS,Fire, Intrusion is exciting to focus on in 2018. However, i want to believe that integration is the mother to unified systems and this deserves to be given an attention. Systems like Genetec, symmetry have unified solution and i feel it will be geat to talk about it.

Mentions of 4K and H.265 (combined), were about 1/3 of "Other".

Beyond that, there was mentions of wireless products, bodycams, burg/fire systems, video intercoms, and VMS/IP based systems (integrators migrating away from HD analog or Dahua/Hikvision-style NVR appliances).
