The previous models of 4K cameras offer a lower frame rate resolution. However, the advent of 4K in video surveillance is much ahead in the consumer market, as compared to that of 1080p.
- Further, the use of GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) in the video surveillance system is accelerating the camera capabilities by at least 25% higher performance, 30% higher camera counts at full HD resolution, and 30 frames per second against 15-30 frames per second, which was throwing a massive pile of CPU earlier.
- Advent to this, the infrastructures have become smarter across the world in recent years, with the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence and deep learning technology-enabled cameras expected to increase during the forecast period. Several chip/processor companies are investing in developing AI chips for the cameras. For instance, in recent years, HiSilicon (Shanghai) Technologies Co. Limited launched a series of high-performance AI chips for the camera to address surveillance intelligence.
- Another hardware advancement that occurred is the intelligent video surveillance cameras related to the concept of mobile vision. Consumer electronics companies are developing mobile application-based video surveillance cameras. For instance, Xiaomi introduced a 360-degree camera with mobile vision capabilities for smart home applications. The increase in smart home projects across the world is expected to contribute to the deployment of such technologies to improve public safety.
China in Asia Pacific is presumed to dominate the market
- The introduction of the smart cities concept in the country is the major driving force for the video surveillance market in China. Advanced video surveillance techniques have been integrated with the city administration to boost efficiency. Yinchuan city in China is an example of an advanced smart town where everything, from buses to dustbins, is integrated into a unified system.
- One of the pioneer systems designed using video surveillance was the Hangzhou "City Brain" project, created by Chinese retail and tech company Alibaba, which uses camera systems and sensors across the city to collect data on road conditions in real-time. The data is fed to an AI hub, which manages traffic signals at 128 intersections and helps city officials make better decisions faster.
- China is making progress on a surveillance system that will connect security cameras nationwide via a cloud to a database of every person's facial ID profile and a file of their personal details, according to an article in the South China Morning Post (SCMP). The article has led to a discussion as to whether the system already exists and what its potential dangers may be.
- The SCMP piece updates the story on the Chinese government's plan to implement a national system that could use surveillance cameras to identify any one of China's 1.3 billion people within 3 seconds and with at least 88% accuracy. The project has been underway since 2015, and various technology companies have been involved. It is, however, facing some technical difficulties.
