In 2008, the security industry buzzword was ‘convergence.’ It was a statement on how the market was shifting from analog video surveillance cameras to digital IP surveillance cameras. The experts were saying how the convergence would top 51% percent digital IP by 2009. It took until 2015. If we look at another part of the market, we see the earliest conversations about Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) around 2010.

As the physical security / video surveillance market continues to mature, you are seeing more and more attention paid to integrated solutions. Instead of solely looking at video management software (VMS), or video analytic software, or access control systems, you are now being drawn to VMS systems that work seamlessly with a wide range of additional capabilities such as video analytics, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, and access control – just to name a few. Over the years, end-users have come to understand —even expect— advanced technologies like video analytics being part-and-parcel of the provided solution set. Security.World caught up recently with Paul Eaton, President of Convergence To Pixel, to talk more about integrating other organizational systems into video surveillance VMS systems.
