In an interview at Secutech Thailand 2023 with Asmag.com, Miss Thachawan Chinchanakarn, regional sales manager of Synology, discussed the company's role in the trend of transitioning from DVR to NVR within Thailand's surveillance sector.
According to a study
by Research and Markets, the Asia-Pacific Video Surveillance Systems Market is expected to experience a growth rate of 15.4% CAGR from 2022 to 2027. This impressive growth is largely attributed to the increased adoption of video surveillance technologies in the Asia Pacific region, fueled by major investments in smart city initiatives and infrastructure projects.
Within this burgeoning market, Thailand stands out as an early adopter, making a transition from Digital Video Recorders (DVR) to Network Video Recorders (NVR) in its surveillance systems. This transition from DVR to NVR is not merely a change in technology; it marks a significant upgrade that reflects the digital transformation happening across the region.
The shift to NVRs comes with an array of benefits, including support for high-resolution IP cameras, which ensures clear and detailed footage. Scalability features enable businesses to effortlessly expand their camera networks to meet changing demands. Remote accessibility allows real-time monitoring and control from any online location, and intelligent video analytics enhance security with automated event analysis and alerts. Moreover, the integration with systems like access control and alarms make NVRs a comprehensive and adaptable solution in the rapidly advancing surveillance landscape.
At the forefront of this transformative journey stands Synology, a company renowned for its storage solutions. Tailoring their offerings to cater to diverse business needs, Synology plays a crucial role in enabling industries to bolster their security measures and thrive in the digital era. With comprehensive solutions encompassing robust data management, data protection, and a centralized surveillance management system, Synology seamlessly aligns with the burgeoning trend of NVR adoption that is gaining traction across the Asia-Pacific region.
In an interview at Secutech Thailand 2023 with Asmag.com, Miss Thachawan Chinchanakarn, regional sales manager of Synology, discussed the company's role in the trend of transitioning from DVR to NVR within Thailand's surveillance sector.
