About Homeland Security Surveillance Camera
Surveillance cameras monitor the behavior and activities of people for the purpose of managing, directing, or protecting them. Electronic systems, such as the closed-circuit television (CCTV), are generally used to perform surveillance from a distance. These cameras are primarily used by various governments and government agencies for intelligence gathering, crime prevention, protection of people or infrastructure, or for the investigation of crimes.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global homeland security surveillance camera market to grow at a CAGR of 6.22% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Baxall, CONTROP Precision Technologies, Dedicated Micros, The Infinova, JVCKENWOOD, Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic, and Vicon Industries.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is edge-based video surveillance. With the recent trends in camera technologies, high-resolution cameras are in high demand, as they provide superior-quality images/footages. However, they are expensive. This is where edge-based surveillance comes to the picture. Prior to edge-based technology, the high-resolution cameras required higher bandwidth and a robust processor to use several cameras, simultaneously. Moreover, a higher number of cameras slow down the entire network and make it compulsive for users to make expenses on additional servers.”
According to the report, one driver for this market is immediate responses to attacks. As terror and turbulent attacks are increasing worldwide, preventive measures have been initiated (such as the installation of surveillance cameras) near critical infrastructures, government organizations, and in mass transit locations such as bus and railway stations, airports, and marine ports. In case of any uncertain event, such as natural calamities and terrorist attacks, the law enforcement agents and the police officers are expected to be proactive in looking for a suspect, act quickly to rescue the victims, and take precautionary measures for the safety of people. For example, surveillance cameras were very crucial during the 2014-2015 floods in Indonesia, Southern Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Western Malaysia and the cyclone in South East Asia in 2015. As a result of the footages shared by the surveillance cameras, a lot of aid and relief were provided to the victims of the affected regions.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is issues with quality of surveillance data. CCTVs and sensor-based surveillance systems provide analytical information about potential threats in a region, in real-time. However, the surveillance cameras have issues with the quality of the footage, such as sensor noise, low-quality images in poor lighting conditions, and low camera resolution. Also, the images or audio recordings may lack clarity and the objects of interest can get obscured. This imposes a concern for the surveillance camera manufacturers. Of late, the homeland security departments of various countries have implemented surveillance cameras on public transport systems such as metros, trains, airplanes, and buses (which are run by the country’s government). Such deployments of cameras have brought up some problems that are usually encountered on conventional CCTV deployments. These camera issues could lead to the misinterpretation of the actual incidents that happen in these public transport systems.
