In the last month, a renewed sense of optimism has emerged in the video surveillance industry - mirroring the rise of the global stock markets and culminating in a better than expected turnout at ISC West. What does this mean?
The 4th quarter was fairly bad for video surveillance. We predicted major long term changes for the security industry, argued that the stimulus package would be a minor force for the industry and that 2010 would be worse than 2009 for the business.
It seems clear now that the rate of descent is either slowing or stopping. Are we now out of danger and should we expect to see the previous pace of business resume?
