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.

We have teamed with NUUO, a leading video software maker, to launch the new Falcon Hybrid N Series. This solution is ideal for security administrators looking to incorporate the latest IP technologies, while still supporting existing analog investments. The Falcon N supports up to 64 recording channels, up to 8TB of video storage capacity, and integrates advanced NUUO digital video software, including Central Management System (CMS).

Remember when you purchased your first digital camera? It was easy (sort of). You could take as many pictures as you wanted. And purge the crappy images later. There was instant preview. You could email the pics without a scanner or a trip to the photo store. Pictures went from special occasions to daily occurrences. This same thing is happening in surveillance. As people transition from analog video to digital video and IP technologies, a whole new world emerges. Images are higher quality. You can make out faces, nail polish color and name badges. You can act, or react immediately based on the footage. You can analyze the footage. You can view the footage remotely: from home, on your mobile, or when you are out and about. Each of these features of digital video are opening up new opportnities for physical surveillance.

From Security World Magazine:
Why is everyone migrating to intelligent IP video surveillance?
Intelligent network-based video surveillance technology based on Internet Protocol (IP) can transform yesterday’s analog CCTV system into tomorrow’s feature-packed security management tool. And it is available today. The technology infuses the power of video into a company’s security infrastructure and delivers value not just to the security department, but potentially — through open architecture connectivity — to almost every part of a business and even to the bottom line. No wonder everyone is migrating to IP-based intelligent video surveillance. The economic benefits are as clear as the numbers on a ledger sheet — although these benefits are sometimes not clearly communicated to company management. This article will describe the basics of IP video surveillance — the technology and its security benefits — with an emphasis on its costs and its value to transform security.
