This Frost & Sullivan research report titled "Advances in Digital Video Surveillance and Optical Security Systems" provides an overview of the latest developments in the field of digital video surveillance and the main factors impacting this market. It covers all aspects of a surveillance system such as cameras, video management, and video analytics that provide intelligence to the system. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following application sectors: aerospace and defense, homeland security, retail, education, healthcare, and transportation. The technologies covered are Internet protocol (IP)-based video surveillance, video analytics, and wireless surveillance systems.

Technology Overview
The digital video surveillance systems market is growing significantly, boosted by heightened public and private security concerns as well as a technology shift. The security industry is converging with information technology slowly and gradually transitioning to IP-based video surveillance systems. Video analytics is another technology that is rapidly advancing in surveillance systems. "The world is witnessing several grave terror attacks as well as threats, increasing the urgency to develop reliable and secure defense mechanisms," noted the analyst of this report.

"Video surveillance has proved to be an effective crime deterrent and is being globally adopted by security and law enforcement agencies," said the analyst. The digital video surveillance systems market is growing rapidly not only in terms of technological advances, but also in adoption of new applications. The number of cameras deployed is anticipated to be high along with the increasing security budgets for government and private sector organizations.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), an effective method for collecting vital information, have been employed for over a decade to perform video surveillance for defense and homeland security applications. The need for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance drives the growth of the global unmanned aerial systems market. Future enhancements in remote sensing include improved accuracy, resolution, timeliness, and convenience of remotely sensed data to render such data more readily available for diverse areas of interest. Global research initiatives focus on image compression, data fusion, and image processing to 3-D vision, remote sensing, object detection, and video analysis.

Although video surveillance provides security, the use of such systems has resulted in a significant amount of concern that is expressed regarding violation of privacy by such cameras. There is a growing trend of integrating video surveillance solutions with access control, intrusion detection technologies, home automation systems, and fire and safety applications, which is stepping up the adoption of video surveillance systems. "Competitive factors should be considered by companies such as the ability to integrate products into a complete solution, innovation and differentiation from competitors, proven record of accomplishment in alleviating surveillance systems, and the formation of strategic partnerships with various layers of the value chain," concluded the analyst.
