  • 2013 IP surveillance camera semiconductor market will continue to expand

        According to IHS company´s industrial electronic reporting , public and personal safety as more and more attention , IP surveillance camera semiconductor market this year will continue to expand.
        2013 IP surveillance camera revenue will reach $ 307.1 million , compared with $ 228.6 million last year, an increase of 34% . Beginning last year, the market will remain above 30% for three consecutive years of growth . Last year, an increase of 33 % in 2014 is expected to grow by 30%. 2017 will grow to $ 700 million .
        IP surveillance camera not only used to improve the streets and public places, the security situation in the city , but is also used in private facilities , parking lots , factories and industrial areas , from a central control room for monitoring specific areas or processes. Although analog camera costs low, but not too far away when used , but often lack the IP camera possess some of the advanced features.
        IP video camera is more suitable for remote monitoring, it can be through the Internet , can also provide powerful wireless support and encryption. They can also provide high-definition images, intelligent analysis and local storage , and analog camera not have these advantages .
        IP camera largest market in North America, compared with other markets , the market is more affordable in relatively high-end devices. Analog camera of choice for the Chinese market , Chinese market share in the analog camera huge share, delaying the entire Asia-Pacific region the popularity of IP network camera speed. However, Asia 2015 will become the world ´s second largest IP surveillance camera market , second only to North America, Europe, pushed the third . Europe continues to be the eurozone crisis.
        IP camera shipments this year from 2012 ´s 6.1 million to 8.2 million in 2017 increased to 20.2 million .
        Overall , network surveillance camera is playing a role in helping to alleviate the people for many security concerns . Economic chaos in many regions , prompting people to pay more attention to their personal safety , but not with the terrorists continued to events related to the gathering places of public safety personnel challenges.
        Multi-core central processor enters the camera
        In the security IP camera,the included four main functions: image acquisition, completed by the image sensor ; image signal processing , using a dedicated module to complete ; compressed by the core processor or dedicated components to complete ; information transfer via Ethernet is complete.
        Core or main processor is the nerve center of the camera , an image processor and compression manage the flow of data between subsystems , and control the camera network communication.
        In the main processor can use a variety of architectures, system on chip (SoC) as lower power consumption, the IP camera occupies a very high share . SoC prices due to camera resolution and different types , from the semi- HD Full HD $ 10 to $ 30 , as well as ultra-high definition 4K $ 60 .
        In addition to other SoC , IP camera processor may use a field programmable gate array (FPGA) or digital signal processor (DSP), but the two forms are not commonly used.
        There is a trend to use of the camera in the multi-core central processor, in order to provide more processing power.
