2018 Video Surveillance Cameras Overview

By: IPVM Team, Published on Dec 11, 2017

This report concisely explains the developments for surveillance cameras offered in 2017 and the state of offerings going into 2018, including cybersecurity, multi-imagers, resolution, H.265, HD analog, image quality, video analytics and cost.

Compare this with our Video Surveillance Cameras 2017 Overview and the Video Surveillance Cameras 2016 Overview.

Cybersecurity

For the first year, really ever in video surveillance, cybersecurity became a major factor. The two events that most impacted the industry were Dahua devices getting massively hacked and Hikvision's simplisitic IP camera backdoor being revealed. With the two largest volume manufacturers hit so heavily, the industry took notice. They were certainly not alone, as various vulnerabilities were found, at various levels of criticality across many manufacturers (as cataloged in our Directory of Video Surveillance Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities and Exploits).

Likewise, many manufacturers started marketing their commitment to cybersecurity (both as an offensive, i.e., way to beat competitors, and a defense mechanism, i.e., to stop customers from defecting).

Resolution Slowing

Camera resolution was not a major factor / shift in video surveillance cameras offered in 2017. Incrementally, adoption of 4MP continued to grow, with 4MP increasingly becoming the most typical resolution used and 4K use growing. However, compared to the past few years, the rate of resolution 'increase' has slowed, with 10+ MP camera options not growing significantly.

I don't think the race is over , the economy has changed and end users are willing to pay more for quality and performance

Manufacturers have adjusted to economics and therefore are willing to set a different standard. Approach to the industry

Who and why has changed in the sales process , more low end, high end , less in the middle on the stat's

consumer confidence is high , therefore sales are in line with that

The HD Quality has jumped into the market with coax and integration using existing infrastructures 

This has changed the perception of market and therefore changed all the variables .
