ID preferred in SA

January 2009 News

Axis Communications recently conducted a survey in South Africa that showed that Internet Protocol (IP) solutions are the most requested with regards to new and upgraded video surveillance installations.

When asked, 83% of the respondents in the survey cited IP surveillance as the solution most requested by their clients. This, compared to only 40% who listed analog systems as their clients preferred surveillance solution, confirms the prediction that IP surveillance will surpass analogue to become the standard in the video surveillance industry.

Despite the other business benefits offered by IP Surveillance systems, such as improved stock control, productivity maximisation and aiding market research, the primary reason for installing video surveillance solutions remains business and personal security concerns. This view was confirmed by 100% of respondents.

The growth of IP Surveillance is a result of the public’s realisation that IP systems can be effortlessly integrated into existing IT and communication infrastructure, offering ease-of-installation previously not experienced with video surveillance systems. 68% of the respondents cited this as the reason for the continuous growth of IP surveillance, while 80% attributed the growth to the lower total cost of ownership of IP surveillance systems due to their reduced power consumption.

When asked which industry sector required video surveillance solutions the most, 67% of the respondents identified transport, while 65% pointed towards retail.

The survey was conducted in August 2008 and drew insights from integrators and distributors in the video surveillance industry.
