Winners Losers Spring 2012

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 22, 2012

Now that the dust has settled from the product announcements of the last month, we can better understand the impact on the overall video surveillance market.

Trends

Here's the biggest three trends we see out of nearly 50 new product announcements:

  • Lack of Innovation: Even more so than last fall, very few new products were especially noteworthy. This was especially surprisingly, given that Spring is traditionally the time of year when the biggest releases happen.
  • Edge Storage: Centered around Axis's expanded support, numerous VMSes added support as well as Axis's own controversial VMS replacement offering. While people talked about edge storage for years, this is by far the application's biggest boost ever.
  • Improved Image Quality: While resolution increases were uncommon this year, a slew of prominent manufacturers increased enhanced WDR and/or low light performance. As such, we see 'beautiful' surveillance video becoming commonplace.

Compare these to our analysis of Fall 2011 and Spring 2011 trends.
