As the market for Internet protocol-based video surveillance products continues to grow, consumers of those products want integration between access control and video, greater interoperability and intelligent video analysis, says a report on IP-video trends.

The trend toward IP is influencing the way security products are purchased, with information technology managers working more closely with security managers in making buying decisions says the report—IP Trends in Security, A Survey of Systems Integrators and Installers in Europe and North America 2012 Edition—by IMS Research, a consultant and producer of market research to the global electronics industry.

Intelligent video analysis, access control and interoperability are just a few examples of how the transition to IP-based security products will evolve beyond the limitations of analog video, says IMS Research.

The latest report is a third edition and it provides manufactures of security products with direct feedback from system integrators and installers identifying their preferences and requirements for IP-based video surveillance products, the company says. In addition, the report is published in two regional volumes, Europe and North America.
