Axis's Retail Report Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 12, 2011

In this note, we examine a report on retail surveillance use sponsored by Axis. While the report claims an overwhelming interest in network surveillance, we believe the sample size is heavily biased to chain retailers with large locations, under-representing the mass of retailers who find it quite difficult to justify IP camera adoption.
