What IT Managers Need to Know About IP Surveillance
The video surveillance market is in the throes of transition. IP surveillance is rapidly taking over from traditional analog CCTV. Within the next three years more than half the surveillance cameras used in North America will be IP cameras, according to the research firm Frost & Sullivan. Over the next two years IP video surveillance product sales will increase by more than 200% "significantly disrupting and overtaking analog CCTV sales", according to IPVideoMarket.

- Bandwidth and storage growth can be managed and scaled more easily and flexibly, using open standards
