Things are looking up for the IP surveillance market. 2010 has been a good year, as IP Camera Sales alone jumped 30% according to IPVideoMarket.info. But 2011 is looking even brighter, and here are the top reasons why:
- Mature IP Technology: Over the past years, the IP Surveillance market is developing at a rapid rate by offering more advanced IP cameras, Video Management Software, and Video Management Engines at a better cost.
- Declining Analog Surveillance Sales: As IP Surveillance offers more scalable, affordable and performance-driven features, analog cameras and DVR sales have declined and are expected to decline in the following years.
- Demand for Image Quality and HD Cameras: Resolution is key in today’s surveillance industry, and IP Cameras these days are boosting up their megapixel resolutions like never before.
- Economic Rebound: With the economy slowly rebounding from the recession, we see more companies investing more on surveillance, giving the IP surveillance market a broader customer base than in recent years.

When it comes to security solutions, there are two major issues that we come across with everyday: one is the possibility of failover, and the other is redundancy. It is a frustrating situation to be in, but there are ways to eliminate these unfortunate predicaments and design a Resilient Surveillance and Storage System.
Tune in on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at 10:00am PST (1:00am EST) as we present our weekly DNF Security Webinar. This week’s webinar is titled “How to build a resilient Video Surveillance & Storage Solution? When ‘Up-time’ is a Must!” We will cover the following:
- How to define, the high availability, redundancy and failover requirements from Server- to-Storage?
- What are the parameters of design and the components to choose from?
- What are the statistical possibilities of failover?
- What are the tools and techniques in designing a resilient & robust system?
Walk away with a better sense of how to build a resilient video surveillance and storage solution. Register here for more information:

In a down economy, high unemployment rates and tumbling stock prices are not the only factors that you have to worry about—increasing crime rates are another crucial factor. It seems inevitable that whenever things get a little tough the number of robberies, violent crimes, and other related activities are sure to come. But there is a silver lining, and that is the growing technology of video surveillance.
According to market research firm, IMS Research, the video surveillance storage market is expected to reach $5.6 billion within the next three years. Although DVR systems are the current heavy hitter in the surveillance world, the sophisticated digital wave of new surveillance technologies such as IP SANs (Storage Area Networks) and Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) are on the rise. This is because surveillance networks as well as VSaaS are much more scalable and flexible than that of traditional analog solutions.
However that does not mean that DVR solutions are a thing of the past, there are many end-users that prefer the analog approach. But with the technology of security solutions increasing every day, it seems that the future of the surveillance security industry is digital.

Surveillance on transit systems has been employed on various scales in every part of the world as public safety becomes more of a pressing issue. However, the older traditional systems typically have low resolution, fixed monitoring, and lack flexibility to increase the number of units. These systems do not provide the proper real time surveillance capabilities needed to capture every day activity.
Instead, transit systems need on the go surveillance with the flexibility to scale as storage needs grow. One solution is the ruggedized mobile surveillance which complies with military standards. This guarantees a perfect solution for moving medium surveillance where it can absorb shocks and vibrations. Real-time surveillance is provided by using cellular network to connect and allow live streaming as well as playback. In addition, it comes with Wi-fi built that offers wireless connectivity for new wireless IP cameras along with the regular IP camera. It can transfer hundreds of Mb data pretty quickly to archive them to remote storage.

The mobile video surveillance market is expected to double by 2015 (Frost & Sullivan, July 2009), but are you equipped with the right system to handle harsh conditions? As proven by Military Standard testing, a good Ruggedized Mobile Surveillance system lasts longer, is safer from damage, and the right ones can communicate via multiple types of transmission.
To learn more about what to look for in a solution, sign up for our informative webinar Ruggedized Mobile Surveillance – Built to Move on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 11am PST.
We will provide in-depth information on standard mobile surveillance systems, the significant differences of a ruggedized solution and how DNF Security can fulfill those needs.
