Here is a list of upcoming video surveillance reports that will be released in November and December 2009. Let me know if you have questions or topics that you want to be covered in these reports.
2010 Video Surveillance Industry Guide
On November 2, 2009, we will release the 2010 Video Surveillance Industry Guide. This will be a 300 page PDF that provides coverage on key video surveillance trend and in-depth coverage on over 100 global video surveillance companies.
Product Comparison Reports
We will release 3 product segment comparison reports:
Managed/Hosted Video: On November 15, 2009, we will release a report examining the fast growing market for managed/hosted video surveillance. The report will cover at least 10 different providers and contrast the strength and weaknesses of various offerings.
Storage: On November 30, 2009, we will release a report examining options for video surveillance storage focusing on 'non-traditional' storage options including SAN, NAS and on-board storage. The report will compare a number of manufacturers.
Wireless: On December 15, 2009, we will release a report examining the product options for transmitting video surveillance over wireless infrastructures. This will include mesh, MIMO, point to point and consumer alternatives, contrasting various manufacturer's approaches.
We plan to release a number of product test results in November and December, including:
- Exacq's VMS software
- Sanyo's HD cameras
- Pelco's Sarix HD cameras
- Mobotix's Megapixel camera and VMS software
Exact dates will depend on progress in testing and may shift due to complexities of testing.
In addition to the test and comparisons, we plan 1 or 2 other reports per week on general industry topics.
