IP Camera 2009 Mid Year Review

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 26, 2009

Megapixel was the most dominant trend in IP cameras over the first half of 2009. So dominant was megapixel, that not only did most manufacturers release new megapixel cameras but a new non-IP megapixel standard was proposed. Not surprisingly, industry people voted megapixel as the overwhelming choice for having the most impact on the video surveillance business.

Megapixel Product Explosion

In the last 6 months, megapixel has transitioned from a product that only a dozen or so manufacturers offered to being available in almost every video surveillance booth on a trade show floor (this was literally the case at SecuTech Taipei this April).

Non-IP Megapixel

In the mix of this, the recent announcement of the HDcctv Alliance, a trade group advocating non-IP megapixel standards has created quite a stir. Many (most?) of the powerful IP manufacturers are dismissing this as too little, too late. On the other hand, some traditional analog manufacturers have started to rally around it. For an overview of this, see our HDcctv introduction and our HDcctv competitive analysis (both featuring extensive community debate).

IP Camera Testing

We launched our IP camera testing program. The first of its kind, they are independent tests that provides extensive training and analysis of the product's performance. [See our IP Camera Testing Guidelines for background information.]

IP Camera test results released include:


Additionally, we are currently in the middle of testing Cisco's HD camera, IQinVision, Mobotix, Sanyo and VideoIQ.

The Next 12 Months and IP Camera Standards

While a few announcements were made on IP camera standards, most of the work on the trade specifications (PSIA, ONVIF) happened behind the scenes. I expect the next 12 months to generate numerous announcements and product launches around ONVIF and HDcctv. These events will help show how strong and how quickly standards may impact real-world projects.
