5th AnniversaryBy: John Honovich, Published on Apr 03, 2013
In just 5 years, IPVM has become the most informative and influential source on video surveillance globally. This note recaps our achievements, outlines our goals for the next 5 years and, to thank you, offered a special 50% off membership deal.
In 2008, IPVM, then IPVideoMarket.info, started out as my programming project, spidering and detecting new web pages on surveillance manufacturer websites, aggregating and displaying them (here's what it looked like in 2008). It just kept on expanding to reviews and tests and surveys and training.
Now in 2013, we have:
- Over 2400+ Original Articles
- 160 Tests
- 119 Tutorials
- Dozens of survey results (see our popular Surveillance Stats Handbook)
- A free eBook downloaded over 50,000 times
- 90,000+ visits last month
Our focus for expansion is simple: testing and training. While testing, is by far the most expensive thing we do, it is the clear cornerstone of our positioning and incredibly valuable for making decisions. Equally important, it enables us to deliver unrivaled education.
Over the next 5 years, the goal is to have 6 - 12 full time test engineers doing 200+ tests per year, on core technologies, shootouts and products across surveillance, access control and intrusion.
