Need for Significant Investment in R&D
Research & Development investments have direct impact on new firm entry. large R&D investments are needed for introducing technological changes and to overthrow new entrants.
Structural barriers arise from the existing demand, cost and technology conditions of an industry and are the same for all firms, new or existing, while strategic barriers are created from the actions and strategic choices of incumbent firms. Examples of structural barriers are economies of scale and capital costs, while examples of strategic barriers are limit pricing and collusion.
R&D is considered as a structural barrier to entry, however it also has a strategic side, as incumbent firms may use R&D strategically it in order to impede new competitors.
Video surveillance systems have long served as the workhorse of physical security, exposing and even deterring criminal activity. But changes in technology have allowed cyber hackers to turn the tables on these dependable devices and make surveillance cameras another piece of equipment that needs to be protected. As more and more facilities opt for advanced IP (internet protocol) cameras, they expose themselves to hackers who, often, can easily gain access to system networks, changing or stealing data and rendering cameras useless.
In a video surveillance network, each IP camera is a unique, connected device with its own passwords and security settings. Poorly configured devices with design flaws or faulty firmware, combined with a “set it and forget it” mindset, can give hackers easy access to manipulate video footage and potentially compromise other critical systems housed on the same network. Facilities often invest vast resources to combat cybersecurity threats to their IT systems. And the same vigilance should apply when managing video surveillance systems.
Hacking of IP surveillance cameras first appeared in the public eye in 2016 when a huge DDoS attack influenced one-third of all US Internet services. An immense number of IP cameras had been hacked on the grounds that their default usernames and passwords had not been changed.Vulnerabilities in internet-connected camera enable an attacker to seize control of the camera for manipulation. They can remotely control the camera for use as a surveillance device with the capacity to snoop on any recorded sound or video. Pictures and videos recorded by the camera can be transferred to a mobile application. Exploitation of bandwidth resource, end-user deception, anti-forensic data planting and zombie exploitation are a few highlights that fall under possible manipulation.
Top Market Opportunities
Cloud technologies and cloud based surveillance is a key driver for IP technology adoption. Increased awareness about the benefits of these solutions, including remote monitoring, encouraging ROI, reliability makes it an opportunity.With growing maturity and adoption of cloud-based video surveillance technologies, service providers and network operators are finding they can acquire new revenue streams and increase ARPU by offering the right Video Surveillance solution to key vertical markets, including: restaurants, offices, warehouses, retail stores, fitness centers, financial institutions, multi-unit apartments, property managers, hotels, schools, health services and law enforcement.
Untapped SME Market
Huge opportunity for electronic security system will emerge from Small Office Home Office (SOHO) and Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) markets across the world. The home and office security system market is growing at 25 to 30 per cent annually. The SME market is still largely untapped as only 40% of the respondents of a survey point to have implemented surveillance systems and hence can be an opportunity that can boom the growth of the IP Surveillance Camera Market players.
Investments of about $1.2 trillion will be required over the next 20 years across areas such as transportation, energy, and public security to build smart cities in countries like USA, UK and India. Under the “Safe City” project, the Union Ministry of India proposes $333 million for security and surveillance in 7 big cities which is an opportunity for the Market Players.High level of security concerns and increasing rate of adoption of security systems are creating exponential growth in surveillance market. It has also created enormous market opportunities for the vendors and installers. Additional measures taken by institutions and increasingly by individuals, to reduce theft and vandalism are inducing further demand in this market. Additionally, this increasing adoption rate has also opened up opportunities in the government and commercial sectors for business intelligence.
Increasing security concern
Since there is an increased security concern in residential areas due to an upsurge in crime and theft incidents, people are adopting advanced surveillance systems to protect their indoor and outdoor assets. This system is easy to install and helps to provide real time view of location.
IP surveillance system is configured with inbuilt video analytics, which gives out warnings if there are suspicious activities going on. The system alerts the organizations and helps them to prevent any such occurrences. Therefore, these systems generate huge demand and usability in banking and financial institutes and amongst business users.
Availability of Intelligence Services
With increased demand for Security, Video-based Surveillance has become an important area of Surveillance. An Intelligent Video Surveillance system basically censored the performance, happenings, or changing information usually in terms of human beings, vehicles or any other objects from a distance by means of some electronic equipment (usually digital camera).
The scopes like prevention, detection, and intervention which have led to the development of real and consistent video surveillance systems are capable of intelligent video processing competencies. In broad terms, advanced video-based surveillance could be described as an intelligent video processing technique designed to assist security personnel’s by providing reliable real-time alerts and to support efficient video analysis for forensic investigations.
The Availability of Intelligence Services such as alerts and video analytics are driving the demand for IP Video Surveillance Cameras.
Reduction in Complexity of Cabling
IP cameras (commonly referred to as Network cameras, or Megapixel cameras) feature an embedded video server that converts images into a digital format inside of the camera. Because IP cameras are embedded devices and do not need to output an analog signal, they are capable of capturing far higher resolutions than traditional analog cameras and require less cabling.
IP cameras connect to a local network via a single Ethernet cable, which transmits power, video and data to and from the camera which reduces the complexity in cabling. Additionally, IP cameras have a unique IP address, and can be accessed directly via the network – providing remote access and storage flexibility.
IP network cameras can by deployed anywhere reachable by Ethernet cabling or a wireless access point, expanding deployment options to include longer reaches or even outdoor coverage.
Increased Flexibility and Scalability
An IP surveillance system is more robust, flexible, and scalable. IP (Internet Protocol) cameras send digital signals over a computer network. Although slightly more inexpensive initially, an IP-based video security system gives the ability to monitor, view and record activity from remote locations. Cameras can be controlled simply by logging into the network using a computer, tablet, or even a smartphone.
Delivering high-quality video in real time, IP-based surveillance systems are highly scalable and are flexible as any number of cameras can be added based on the Demand.
High Bandwidth Requirement
While there are a lot of advantages of IP Surveillance over Analog Surveillance, bandwidth occupied by IP Surveillance Cameras are an important consideration before implementing an IP surveillance project as the bandwidth demand is typically higher when compared to other types of Surveillance Cameras such as CCTV or Analog Cameras. The IP Surveillance cameras can malfunction if enough bandwidth is not provided.
Factors affecting the bandwidth occupied by IP Surveillance Cameras:
- Resolution: Various resolutions are supported by IP Surveillance cameras, from QVGA to HD. Higher the resolution, higher the bandwidth required to transmit every video stream from the IP Camera to the user monitoring station (computer/ server).
- Frame Rate: Various frame rates are supported by IP Surveillance cameras from 5 frames per second to 30 frames per second (for example). Higher the frame rate, higher the bandwidth required.
- Compression codec: There are various types of compression schemes applied to the transmitted video like MPEG4, H.264, etc. Better compression (H.264, for example), lower the bandwidth required to transmit each video stream.
- Compression ratio: A video stream can be compressed more than 90% of its original size, based on the compression codec and the compression ratio used. Better the compression ratio, lower the bandwidth required.
- Type of Camera Operation: An IP Camera can be operated in fixed mode or PTZ mode. In the latter, the movement of the camera can controlled (even from a remote location) and the bandwidth occupied in this mode is higher.
- Type of movement/complexity in the scene: If the movement/ complexity in a scene being shot by the IP Camera is less, the bandwidth occupied by the resultant video stream is lesser.
- Other factors: Many other factors like indoor/ outdoor shooting, shooting in bright light/ dark surroundings, etc affect the amount of bandwidth occupied by each video stream. Special applications like face recognition/ license plate recognition require higher resolution/ frame rate recording and hence they will occupy more bandwidth.
Thus IP Surveillance Cameras require more bandwidth when compared with other types of Security Cameras as IP Surveillance Cameras require bandwidth of 1 MB/Sec when compared with 150 KB/sec required by Analog Cameras. thus hindering the adoption of IP Surveillance Cameras.
The Lack of Data Privacy
The information from IP Surveillance Camera can be found anywhere in the world via Internet-connected Android or IOS devices and apps. There is, however, a potentially darker side to this technology because not only can it can be watched, but also to listen to what is going on within proximity of one or more cameras. That means these devices can be used for an unintended purpose -Spying (and in violation of end-user license agreements) which can be illegal under federal and state criminal laws as well as subjecting abusers to civil liability.
Complexity in Configuration
Configuration refers to the way a system is set up, or the assortment of components that make up the system. Configuration can refer to either hardware or software, or the combination of both. The IP Surveillance Camera require that they have a certain minimum configuration. For example, the software might require a graphics display monitor and a video adapter, a particular microprocessor, and a minimum amount of main memory.
When the IP Surveillance Camera is installed it is needed to configure it, which means to set various switches and jumpers (for hardware) and to define values of parameters (for software). For example, the IP Surveillance Camera may need to know what type of video adapter is used and what type of printer is connected to the computer. The configuration of IP Surveillance Cameras involves complex steps which includes setting up the monitor and the Camera itself. The Complexity in the Configuration of the IP Surveillance Cameras hinders the adoption of the same.
The High Costs Associated with Upgrading of Existing Analog Infrastructure
If the network is not set up already and the switches in place, the IP Video Surveillance camera can increase the cost and labor involved in the CCTV installation, regardless of the fact that it needs fewer cables overall. It may cost more to initially set up the IP camera system if the switch is made from analog; The cameras and equipment (aside from cables) tend to cost more on an individual basis compared to their analog counterparts.
Vulnerability to Hacking
Internet Protocol (IP) surveillance cameras afford certain conveniences in homes and businesses primarily owing to their accessibility. With these devices, it’s possible for, say, parents to remotely check on their children in their homes or company personnel to see what’s going on in and around their business premises.
However, their usability tends to come at the expense of security, resulting in such issues as Hacking. More seriously, this trade-off has also led to some consequences that It is also observed, with hackers gaining access to cameras to record videos, selling access to cameras to other parties, or even using cameras for malicious view around shops and getting access to credit card information from unsuspecting customers. Despite the sensitivity of the images and information caught on exposed cameras, though, It is believed that this activity is not the doing of sophisticated hackers.
For one thing, services related to the abuse of IP surveillance cameras and other devices connected to the internet of things (IoT) are often advertised not in darknets, or parts of the internet that are available only through specialized anonymity-protecting tools, but in publicly available social networks such as VK.com. The software and tools used for network enumeration and gaining access to cameras are themselves publicly available as well. In addition, the means of payment used for transactions are often not anonymized.
It is also observed that because cameras often use default passwords or streaming video without authentication, much of the activity related to exposed cameras doesn’t require special knowledge or advanced hacking skills. It’s small wonder, then, that tapping into exposed cameras is considered an easy task for entry-level cybercriminals and script kiddies, or unskilled hackers who use existing scripts or code rather than developing their own. Hence it turns out to be an easy task for hacking the IP Surveillance Cameras.
Rise in number of inferior quality products by local players
There are no standards for the manufacture of IP Surveillance Cameras Lack of standards is also paving the industry to be more streamlined, there is the way for more imports and countries like China and Taiwan are dumping products without any set standards for an association, specifications regarding the manufacture of IP Surveillance Cameras.
There is no regulatory body to keep a check on the industry’s activities, which is a bad situation for a business like ‘security’. The association can also encourage local manufacturing. Moreover, there is a need to educate customers not to compromise on security by using inferior quality products. Customers are very price sensitive and just to save a nominal amount, they compromise on the quality of products, even though it involves their own security. Due to their lack of awareness, customers get mislead by any unorganised player.
The key issue is the unorganised sector and the low customer awareness of quality products available in the market. It is important that the mindset move from just having a surveillance system in place to having a working system that takes care of the predictable threat as well as works well over a period of time. Here, the role of the consultant whether it is an architect or interior designer is also critical as they too should focus on Page quality and durability as against price point alone.
Artificial intelligence for video surveillance
Artificial intelligence for video surveillance utilizes computer software programs that analyze the audio and images from video surveillance cameras in order to recognize humans, vehicles, objects and events. The A.I. program functions by using machine vision. Machine vision is a series of algorithms, or mathematical procedures, which work like a flow-chart or series of questions to compare the object seen with hundreds of thousands of stored reference images of humans in different postures, angles, positions and movements.
The A.I. asks itself if the observed object moves like the reference images, whether it is approximately the same size height relative to width, if it has the characteristic two arms and two legs, if it moves with similar speed, and if it is vertical instead of horizontal. Many other questions are possible, such as the degree to which the object is reflective, the degree to which it is steady or vibrating, and the smoothness with which it moves.
Combining all of the values from the various questions, an overall ranking is derived which gives the A.I. the probability that the object is or is not a human. If the value exceeds a limit that is set, then the alert is sent. It is characteristic of such programs that they are self-learning to a degree, learning, for example that humans or vehicles appear bigger in certain portions of the monitored image – those areas near the camera – than in other portions, those being the areas farthest from the camera.
Forensic Video Analytics as a Service
When reviewing video for investigations one of the biggest challenges is the sheer volume of video footage which may need to be examined. It's said that typically it may take a trained officer or analyst using traditional methods (a notepad and the pause/rewind buttons) 1.5 - 2 hours to review just an hour of raw video footage. This can be a huge consumer of resource.
The problem is particularly prominent in police forces where the issue is amplified by a combination of budgetary constraints and a spike in the amount of video inputs (increased use of body worn cameras and more publically submitted videos). There have long been grounds to find a more efficient solution. Several video surveillance analytic solutions for forensic video analysis have been available for some time, yet, the improvement in accuracy in the last 18-24 months using deep learning technology has been critical. This advancement has pushed accuracy to a level of competency that can be reliable enough to assist human analysts. However, deploying this technology can prove expensive for police departments.
At present there is a significant hardware cost required to run this type of video analytic. And many of the potential clients are not managing live cameras but instead looking for a tool to search through the repository of potential evidence they have collected from multiple sources in many formats. Some providers have offered use of their analytics and software packages in a “as a service model” where police forces or agencies can utilize the vendor’s onsite infrastructure and internal analysts to outsource their forensic video analysis.
Moving this model to a cloud platform is an obvious evolution where by following some training clients can use on-demand forensic video analytics for particular cases remotely with their own analysts without large hardware investment.

Radio Frequency (RF) detection aerials:
These products are used to detect, analyze, and locate the RF used by the drone base station to communicate with the drone. The benefits of RF detection aerials are that they can detect and locate both the drone in the air and the person controlling the drone, in some instances even before the drone takes off. RF aerials are also able to detect over a much greater range than radar or video surveillance cameras.
Additionally, RF aerials can potentially even interfere with the communication between the drone and the controller. However, doing this can have unknown effects, such as the drone dropping out of the sky. The problem with RF aerials is that they are not particularly accurate at providing a specific location, nor are they able to provide video verification of a drone.
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) also known as H.265 and MPEG-H Part 2, is a video compression standard, designed as a successor to the widely used AVC (H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10). In comparison to AVC, HEVC offers from 25% to 50% better data compression at the same level of video quality, or substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate.
It supports resolutions up to 8192×4320, including 8K UHD, and unlike the primarily 8-bit AVC, HEVC's higher fidelity Main10 profile has been incorporated into nearly all supporting hardware. HEVC is competing with the AV1 coding format for standardization by the video standard working group NetVC of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
Distribution Chain Analysis
IP Video Surveillance Camera supply chains are characterised by two main parts, one being the manufacturing process and the other being the distribution process. The first two steps (suppliers and manufacture) may be included in the manufacturing process, whereas the three other steps may be included in the delivery process.
