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.
