IHS publishes Top Video Surveillance Trends for 2016 report. Few quotes:
"4K video surveillance has been repeatedly touted as a major trend in video surveillance for the last 18 months and it can sometimes be challenging to see past the marketing hype. Yet make no mistake, the video surveillance market is going to 4K cameras; it’s only a matter of when rather than if. For 2016, IHS is predicting:
• Volumes of 4K cameras shipped in 2016 will remain low, less than 1% of the 66 million network cameras projected to be shipped globally. We are unlikely to see over million 4K network cameras units shipped in a calendar year until 2018.
• More “4K-compliant” cameras will be launched because of the increased use of 4Kp30 and above chipsets, meaning more cameras adhering to 4K standards, such as SMPTE ST 2036-1.
• Like the HD surveillance cameras, early 4K models offered the resolution at lower frame rates. We’ll see more cameras with a higher frame rate offered, and closer ties to other video standards."
