Video Content Analysis in Security & Business Intelligence Applications – World

IMS Research first published a dedicated report on video analytics in 2006. At that time, many in the industry predicted a more rapid uptake of the technology than transpired. Reasons for this slower growth included installation problems, false alarm rates, lack of market education, and a global economic downturn. Despite this, development of VCA (Video Content Analysis) technology has continued and market expectations are changing. A more realistic set of expectations are being set and there is a new sense of optimism.

This report is the most comprehensive analysis available on the emerging and fast moving market for VCA. It is ideal for senior managers or executives who need to assess how best to pursue opportunities in this market and compete effectively. It addresses the following questions:

  • How big is the market for PC-based and embedded VCA software? How quickly will it grow over the next five years?
  • How does the intelligent device market segment by cameras, encoders, DVRs, and NVRs?
  • How quickly will the market grow for video business intelligence applications?
  • How fast are vertical markets like banking & finance, casinos, healthcare, retail, residential, commercial, education, traffic management, energy & utilities, government, and transportation growing?
  • What impact will “free” analytics have on the charged analytics market?
  • Who are the leading suppliers? How do their market shares vary by product type and by region?

Automotive Camera Modules - World

Increased availability, better awareness of benefits and government mandates are all intensifying interest in advanced driver assistance systems. Several detection technologies are at disposal but arguably the automotive camera module is the most versatile and cost effective, offering the best potential of all current detection technologies available.

This is IMS Research' s third dedicated automotive camera modules report. Like previous editions, it provides forecasts of fitment rates for 12 advanced driver assistance systems, breaking out the proportion of systems using a camera module (percentage & units), average selling price per module, and revenues. Where appropriate it also shows usage (percentage) of other detection technologies, for example radar and ultrasonic.

This edition addresses several new areas, this includes analogue vs. digital camera usage and "one-box" vs. "two-box" camera usage. The report also looks at the image sensor market in more detail than previous editions. Focusing on the current and future feature requirements for image sensors in front cameras and rear cameras respectively. The features are: resolution, field of view, dynamic range and frame rate. Topics such as stereovision and megapixel are also discussed. Market share estimates for 2010 and 2011 are provided in the final chapter for; front camera suppliers, rear camera suppliers and image sensor suppliers.
