Video goes digital - Sponsored tutorial

Video compression and data flow for surveillance systems. By Cyril Clocher.

The desire for greater security has boosted the popularity of video surveillance systems, which are now deployed widely – even in homes. But problems with traditional analogue based systems are influencing a push for digital based systems. The growing popularity of computer network, semiconductor and video compression technologies means next generation video surveillance systems will undoubtedly be digital and based on standard technologies and IP networking.
According to IMS Research, global demand for network video surveillance products increased by 41.9% in 2006 and is forecast to exceed $2.6billion by 2010. Meanwhile, the video server market is forecast to quadruple in size over the next five years. And market researcher iSuppli says the market for surveillance camera chips should hit $1.25bn in 2011 – more than double the $525million reported for 2006.
