IP Video Software Price Points

By John Honovich, Published on May 25, 2009

Two important points about IP video software - tiering price levels and the value of enterprise management.

MSRP around $100 USD seems to be the common price point for IP video software licenses without enterprise management (e.g., Axis Cam Station, LuxRiot, NUUO are all in this range). [Note: there are other similar product offerings that are free but these are usually only for use with the vendor's own IP cameras (e.g., ACTi, Mobotix, IndigoVision, Vicon, etc.]

[Update 2011: Price points have dropped to ~$50 USD driven by Milestone's aggressive price drops.]

By contrast, MSRP around $200 USD seems to be the common price point for IP video software with enterprise management. However, this can go significantly higher depending on the level of 3rd party integration and advanced functionalities included.

Enterprise management - the ability to centrally access, view and manage video resources - is probably the most important element. It's a feature that only a limited number of providers currently offer. However, this is changing and I would expect over a dozen providers to have it by next year (as the market grows).
