Video surveillance software market expected to grow rapidly in the coming years
The switch from analog to digital video surveillance has caused quite a stir in the industry. We've already discussed the rise of IP cameras and their expected growth in the coming years. Another area that's expected to grow exponentially is the video surveillance software market. A recent study by ABI Research predicts video surveillance software revenue to grow fourfold by 2013.
Video surveillance software comes in a variety of forms, from NVR software for managing multiple cameras and handling remote viewing and recording, to video analytics software for detecting criminal activity as it happens. Some software is even designed specifically for analyzing customer behavior in retail environments. The advent of digital surveillance has truly opened up limitless possibilities in this area, which makes it easy to understand why video surveillance software, like IP cameras, is on the up and up.
