VMS / NVR / DVR 2009 Mid-Year Market Review

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 19, 2009

Over the first half of 2009, improvements in deployment simplicity was the strongest theme for video management systems. While few to no groundbreaking features were introduced, more than a dozen manufacturers took steps to reduce the complexity of migrating to IP and deploying software.

Coming out of ISC West, widespread hybrid DVR announcements were one of the industry's overall strongest trends. Such developments were viewed both as ways to help customers extend the life of their existing systems and tactics by incumbent manufacturers to stop the switch to IP video software providers.

On the other hand, IP video software providers offered their own advances by releasing or partnering with providers for pre-loaded NVRs. The most discussed entry was Intransa's NVR series that supports 3 of the biggest software providers - Genetec, Milestone and OnSSI. Many welcomed the elimination of setup complexity with others questioned the value given the price point set by Intransa.

Going forward, the next item to watch for is the roll-out of IP camera specifications (e.g., ONVIF, PSIA). In the next 6 months, VMS manufacturers will start announcing support for these specificaitons. While widespread actual support will take time, adoption of IP camera specifications has the potential to reduce prices for IP video software and shrink the number of companies in the market.
