Favorite Video Analytics Manufacturers 2011

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Dec 19, 2011

[UPDATE: New version - Market Guide and Favorite Video Analytics 2014]

Video analytics remains one of the most controversial areas within surveillance today, fueled by new bogus claims from one fringe player after another. However, certainly some video analytics are being used but how much and what types?

To find out what integrators really think of analytics and how often they are actually deploying them, we asked two video analytics questions as part of our Fall 2011 integrator survey:

The second question was left open-ended, so integrators could choose their favorite instead of being confined to a preselected list of options. We also gave space for comment so they could explain their choice, or why they did not deploy analytics.

The Responses

Of 84 total responses, over twenty unique analytics providers were named.

The Analysis

The most striking outcome of the survey was confirmation of how infrequent video analytics are being used and the widespread lack of confidence in video analytics.

However, a few analytics providers stood out, though by much smaller margins than in our other survey questions. Integrator responses also showed much less consensus than in other survey questions we have asked. Inside, we examine these points in depth.

Use of the Favorites

As with all IPVM research, manufacturers are strictly forbidden from using the results to market or promote their products. This information is offered only to help the community understand what integrators prefer, not to assist in sales. All members must conform to our terms against promotional use.
