IHS latest survey report confirmed that proliferation of body worn video surveillance equipment within law enforcement agencies in recent years, has increased the demand for video storage solutions, especially hybrid and offsite storage offerings.
According to IHS forecast, while hardware was estimated to account for approximately 55 percent of the $60 million global market for body-worn video surveillance equipment and service in law enforcement in 2014, demand for storage is expected to outpace hardware over the next several years and will generate more than 50 percent of the market’s revenue in 2019.
Generally speaking, they are two types of storage solutions prevailing in surveillance industry. One is the local video storage, where a storage server serves the recording and storing purpose on premises. The other is a third party off-site cloud storage and management through an external data center such as AWS or Microsoft Azure. Additionally, a third type of hybrid storage is also predicted to have bright future ahead.
