New Surveillance Products Review June 2011

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 14, 2011

In this report, we provide in depth coverage of new surveillance product releases announced in May and June 2011. Below are the products we are reviewing including a link to each company's announcement:

This is a sequel to our Spring 2011 new products review in which we reviewed dozens of new products.

Usually, by the end of April, all the new significant product releases are done. This year, many significant new products were announced in the winter and new ones keep on coming. Here is a short overview of the significance of the products reviewed:

  • Axis is claiming ground breaking advances in low light performance, an always challenging area that could have a major competitive impact against leaeding D/N cameras, I/R and white light illuminators
  • Axis has released new encoders with massive price reductions compared to their existing offerings, changing the competitive landscape of the encoder market
  • Dallmeier has gained significant attention for announcing the highest resolution camera in the market by far (51MP)
  • With Hawk-i, major VMS supplier Milestone finally has an iPhone / iPad application that is cost competitive with the market
  • Panasonic is the first surveillance vendor claiming to provide commercially available age and gender detection
  • Vivotek is claiming to be the first to deliver the 'next generation' in video codecs (H.264 SVC)

Over the last 2 months, we have investigated into each of these offerings. This report aggregates our findings on the competitive positioning and potential of all of them.
