Hosted Video Taking Off! Hundreds of Channels Per Week!

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 02, 2013

Big news coming out of mega camera manufacturer, Axis. They have confirmed that "hosted video is taking off, with hundreds of new channels being installed each week." Not tens, not dozens, not scores, but hundreds!

Let's appreciate how 'big' this is. Axis's 2012 revenue was ~$600 million USD and they roughly shipped 1 million channels (cameras and encoders) in that time. That is ~20,000 channels per week and, of them, a few hundred are hosted video - working out to be 1 to 2% of their total channels.
