Video Surveillance Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Market Fragmenting Among Product Categories Print E-mail

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 18, 2008- The transition to networked video surveillance is driving a proliferation of product categories in the digital video surveillance market, according to new research from MultiMedia Intelligence. Among the segments MultiMedia Intelligence identifies in the DVR market are Embedded DVRs, PC-Based DVR, Hybrid Network Video Recorder (NVR/DVR), Embedded NVR and NVR with network-based storage.



Traditional Embedded DVRs still dominate the overall video surveillance storage market, comprising 62% of the nearly $2 Billion DVR market in 2007. However, growth has shifted to networked storage products. MultiMedia Intelligence expects the hybrid NVR/DVR segment, which supports both analog and Internet Protocol (IP) camera inputs, to be among the most compelling segments.
“The hybrid NVR/DVR market reflects the broader surveillance market,” according to Mark Kirstein, president of MultiMedia Intelligence. “IP surveillance cameras are growing quickly, but will not supplant CCTV cameras any time soon. Both analog and IP cameras will co-exist for a substantial period of time.”
The NVR category is growing quickly as well. However this segment is split between two sub-segments. The software virtualized NVR category largely reflects a software-based solution, as the hardware tends to be industry standard network storage equipment. The embedded NVR category features a stand-alone hardware NVR, much like the traditional embedded DVR form-factor.


MultiMedia Intelligence’s video surveillance research also found:

  • The DVR market is migrating to higher compression video codecs; MPEG-4 and H.264, as well a dual-codecs.
  • Increasing channel counts, migrating from 4 and 8 channel DVRs to 8 and 16 channel DVRs
  • While CCTV cameras are currently the largest semiconductor segment in the video surveillance equipment market, by 2012 DVR/NVR equipment will become the largest semiconductor opportunity.
