The security market has rapidly expanded since we entered the digital age, with the market research institute, IHS Research, estimating it will grow by 16% yearly until 2019. This growth has brought new technological breakthroughs – and new possibilities for end users.
Some of the most significant innovations are network cameras, intelligent applications, thermal network cameras, Axis’ Lightfinder technology and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). There have also been huge advances in image quality, such as the implementation of HDTV.
“We are committed to our long-term strategy of continuously releasing innovative network video products and offering intelligent security solutions in a global market together with our partners.
Axis has always been at the forefront of these developments. We’ve been driving innovation ever since we started the shift from analog surveillance to network video back in 1996. And today, we’re still leading the market.
Our ambition is to remain in front. That’s why we’re already working on the next industry innovations.
Network cameras create new opportunities to work with new applications. Axis has pioneered this market, showing how IP solutions stretch far beyond security applications. Retailers, for example, are utilizing the technology to manage their inventory and optimize store layout, while cities are using it to manage the flow of traffic, reduce vandalism – and much more.
We’re also pushing the limits of image quality, by exploring how it can be optimized for the surveillance task at hand – no matter how bad the light or ambient conditions. And, another step in our long-term growth strategy is our recent expansion into the physical access control market.
