Readers Choice: Video Analytics - Next Big Thing 2012

By John Honovich, Published on Aug 21, 2012

5 years from now, the next big thing will be.... video analytics. Wait. What? Is this 2002 or 2012? Well, according to your fellow IPVM readers, the surveillance technology that will have the biggest impact in 5 years is video analytics.

The chart below ranks reader's choices from over 600 votes:

While I agree with readers that video analytics has the most upside, it also faces the largest risks. By contrast, the runner up, edge storage, has a much clearer shot at impacting the market. Despite tying for second, hosted video is likely to disappoint, as it is marginalized by both edge storage and managed video, providing similar value with much less drawbacks.
