I use cloud AI and it’s just so ridiculously expensive. We’re going into 2020, these companies need to put real AI right in the Cameras...not the Mickey Mouse crap. There is absolutely no reason why companies should be charging $10/cam/mo for AI or $300-700 per channel for onsite analytics when there’s companies like monitoreal rolling out devices to do it onsite for a very reasonable price.

they can all pitch that the money is needed for “development”, But lets be real- crowdfunding will overtake these expensive companies by creating better, cheaper solutions.

What problem are you solving with AI? What VMS?

For other's reference, Monitoreal is a startup offering a small appliance that does AI on-site without monthly charges. We covered them this week in our ISC East report.

This is the challenge of an early stage market. To be clear, analytics has obviously been around for nearly decades, but this generation of AI / deep learning / analytics is fairly new.

The problem with startups like Monitoreal and Camect is that you have to get a new platform that is unconnected with your existing VMS. Most users will prefer to get from their own existing offerings and as #1 alludes, most don't have AI in most cameras.

I do think it will get there. As I argued earlier this year, 2020 is the year AI Video Surveillance (Finally) Goes Mainstream. The chips, software, packaging is all coming together.

I'm surprise multi-sensor technology wasn't mentioned. Has this trend seen it's day?

Do you mean the whole array of multi-imagers? If so, I only see multi-imagers continuing to grow. I can't replace our old PTZ's in place of multi-imagers fast enough.

Hanwha has a new motorized multi-imager releasing Q1, it looks great on paper and I am hopeful the other big players will follow suit and continue to push this technology.

Buy a 360 Camera with Client-side Dewarp...You'll thank me later. ie Vivotek FE9191.

Pixel density drops off over distance very rapidly with all the 360s (not just Vivotek). More than 10'-20' away from the imager and they are of limited use. I stopped selling 360s unless a customer specifically asks or if it is a small, confined space like a vestibule.

What are your thoughts about a fisheye at the center of a fieldhouse/arena? We recently had a camera die and a spare fisheye kicking around which we're going to put above center.

Fine if you care about situational awareness\operational use. You wont get any recognition anywhere over 25' radius from center.

Aside from terrible pixel density, lack of low light use, and warped image at the edges, many end-users just dont like the spherical look and dont want to have to dewarp anything. Client side dewarping also limits the VMS you can use. Fisheyes have their place, maybe in square rooms smaller than 450 sq ft with plenty of light or used as a cheap 180 on a wall or 270 corner.

Stay away from fisheyes, you will thank me later.

Multisensor cameras were mentioned in a few responses in the 2019 Gaining and Losing survey but in less than 3% of responses.

They were not mentioned by any integrators in this survey, however we asked specifically for the "top industry trend", which would be an odd response in 2020.

It is mature these days. Its usage and sales are certainly increasing, much higher than overall industry growth, but I think this reflects that there will not be major shifts in mutli-imager offerings in 2020 where there is a reasonable expectation for a big expansion in quality analytics offerings next year.
