2014 Video Surveillance Guide

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 09, 2013

The 270 page, 2014 Video Surveillance Industry Guide, covering the key events and the future of the video surveillance market, is now available.

3 Biggest Trends Going Into 2014

The report covers the market in depth, with especial attention on 4 big trends that shaped 2013:

  • Asian manufacturers rising - With Western innovation low, Asian manufacturers improving and cost pressures significant, the balance of power is shifting but is there a comeback in store for 2014?
  • Avigilon rising - Not only did they grow, they accelerated it. Can they continue that in 2014 or is their key executive's recent resignation a sign that good times are coming to an end?
  • Access control incursions - with overall video advances weak, more manufacturers turned to access with Axis releasing IP door hardware, Milestone adding access control management and Avigilon acquiring an access control developer. However, none of it is 'real' just yet. Will 2014 be the year when these developments come to fruition or failure?

Those are just a few of the topics covered in the 50+ chapters inside the Guide. See the full Table of Contents.

I remember to join personal member will provide IPVM document for free , don't you ?

Hello James:

All members see the same updates and reports. For group members only, the 'Biannual Industry Guides' are collections of those materials. There is no 'new' information in those guides you cannot access as a 'Personal' member. A snip from the note above:

"All content in the guide was taken from existing reports or updates already available to all members. The PDF guide provides a convenient way to read them in an organized fashion or print them for off-line review."

The chart below gives an overview of what each plan entails:

Let us know if that answers your question. Thanks!

Sorry Gents - I am a solo user and can't see myself paying for a group rate just to get the PDf version of the guide.

Hi Richard,

I agree. I would not recommend paying a group rate just for the PDF version of the guide. As we said, you can read everything online already.

John

I'm also solo and can't see paying a group rate to get these files
