In most surveillance operations using a DVR, the commonly used method is to link the DVR card to a computer containing the software. This has serious limitations in the event of a virus attack or power failure, because the surveillance system could be thrown off gear. In order to overcome these problems, a new type of DVR called the “embedded DVR” has been launched.
The embedded DVR works with very little or no help from the computer. It is a plug and play meaning that installation is very easy and recording can start as soon as the device is installed. Embedded Mobile DVR can support 4-16 cameras, and a television screen can be added for viewing live pictures. Embedded DVRs provide all the features that come with computer based DVR systems including network support options that allow you to share the recorded data. The motion of the camera can be controlled based on motion and playback and search option are also available.
Embedded DVRs can be programmed to record at specific times. With an alarm facility available, fast detection of any intrusion can be detected. On integration with a web server, remote audio/video monitoring and recording is facilitated. Data storage is usually in MPEG format. If there is a problem with storage, a back up plan is activated where by the data is written onto CD disks. Embedded DVRs also have remote storage facility meaning storage of information can be done at a location away from where the input device is located. This can minimize data pilferage or theft.
Embedded DVRs are now used extensively in the transport sector. Specially developed embedded DVRs have in built features like impact resistance, shock & and vibration resistance are now found in trucks, school and city buses, airport shuttles, cars, taxis, etc. These DVRs are compact and take inputs provided by camera located in different parts of the automobile. It can also provide the driver with a view of the road and\or passengers at all times. In such a system, the storage device is often a replaceable hard disk drive. In some cases, a USB mobile hard disk enclosure is also provided. Use of DVRs in public and private transport devices can increase the security of passengers and cargo.
With enhanced emphasis on security, embedded DVRs have become an irreplaceable component of industrial and corporate security systems. In the near future, the embedded DVRs may find new applications many areas. The full potentials of this device are yet to be realized and it may not be a surprise to see them used by everyday people for everyday living.
The market for embedded DVRs has grown rapidly due to the increasing demand for IP video surveillance systems that can be used in any location, in any network, and on any platform. The increasing use of digital video recording (DVR) technology has been the driving force behind the growth of the global embedded DVR market during the forecast period. This growth is mainly due to the rising demand for IP-based video surveillance solutions. According to Frost & Sullivan, the global IP video surveillance market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.
1.0% between 2014 and
- The increasing demand for security solutions in residential and commercial spaces has increased the adoption of IP video surveillance solutions. In addition, the growing trend of smart homes and the growing need for remote monitoring has also led to an increase in the adoption of IP video surveillance systems. Moreover, the high cost of setting up video surveillance systems has also increased the adoption of IP video surveillance systems. According to Frost & Sullivan, the global market for embedded DVRs is expected to grow at a CAGR of over
3.0% between 2014 and
20% from 2012 to 2017. The global IP surveillance market is segmented on the basis of end-use industry, deployment type, application, geography, and technology. On the basis of end-use industry, the market has been segmented into healthcare, retail, manufacturing, government, energy & utilities, and others. The healthcare segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2012 and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. The rising adoption of IP surveillance systems in healthcare environments for both security and facility management applications has increased the demand for IP surveillance solutions.
In conclusion, the TV industry has been trying to make viewers’ DVR experience more seamless for years. In addition to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, online video services like Pluto TV are also creating a market for live TV alternatives that let viewers watch all their favorite channels at once. Although the transition to a streaming TV service can sometimes be frustrating for viewers, these new options are a welcome alternative to the traditional cable bundle. With the rise of these new platforms, many viewers are finding ways to save money and still get the same quality programming that they used to enjoy. While these streaming services are changing the way we view television, they are also forcing broadcasters and cable providers to change the way they deliver their shows.
