Assemblyman Ralph Caputo, D-Essex, NJ, was even more impressed with a nearby store’s video camera that recorded the entire incident and identified the car. So he crafted bill A-3843 permitting a municipality to enact an ordinance establishing a private outdoor video surveillance camera registry, requiring owners of such cameras to register them with police.

CaughtOnCamera: Burglar With Sledgehammer

SAN ANTONIO – A South Side homeowner’s video surveillance cameras were rolling earlier this month when a burglar used a sledgehammer to break into his home in broad daylight. The crime happened around 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 11, near Loop 410 and Roosevelt Avenue. The burglar used brute force to make entry into Amadeo Patterson’s home. "He uses a sledge hammer and within seven or eight seconds he’s inside the house," Patterson said. Patterson’s eight video cameras were rolling as the burglar grabbed whatever he could get his hands on. "He took a compound bow, two laptops, a Samsung touch-screen device, a whole bunch of jewelry and just a whole bunch of little stuff like that," Patterson said. Patterson has lived in the home since he was 8-years-old and this was 14th time he had been burglarized. Weeks before the most recent break-in, Patterson said another person got in through a window when the burglar bars were removed as the house was being painted.  "They came through our bedroom window and broke out the window," Patterson said. "They weren’t able to get in because of our headboard so I guess since he couldn’t get in he took our push mower instead." Fed up with the crime Patterson installed the surveillance cameras, but even they didn’t scare off the mid-day burglar. "He’s looking at the cameras he knows they’re there but apparently he don’t give a crap," Patterson said. "Unbelievable." Patterson said his neighbors have also been targeted. He’s now […]

Ambarella Positioned To Profit From Booming IP Camera Market

Summary: The IP video surveillance camera market is undergoing a fundamental disruption, driving strong secular growth (23% CAGR 2013-17). While the key IP camera vendors are based outside the US, and thus harder to invest in, Ambarella ( AMBA ) is well positioned to profit from its dominance in semiconductor video encoders. Currently, AMBA is trading at a very modest P/E multiple of 11x ex cash based on a FYE (January) 2015 EPS estimate of $1.12. Given the competitive dominance & growth profile, we believe a more reasonable P/E multiple is 18x ex-cash, which leads to $25 price target. Many discussions regarding Ambarella focus on its sports camera business. This is understandable, as GoPro cameras account for a significant portion of Ambarella’s revenue, and GoPro is a highly successful and visible consumer product. However, we believe that the IP camera market will be the key growth driver for the company, though investor focus on this market has been modest. In this article, we would like to provide a better picture of the secular growth of the market and why Ambarella is well positioned to benefit from it. IP Camera Industry Overview: The IP camera market consists of the traditional, business-focused (enterprise and SMB) video surveillance camera market and a nascent consumer IP camera market. Between these two markets, the traditional video surveillance camera market accounts for the majority share of the current TAM. The consumer IP camera market, although small today, is expected to grow rapidly, as the hardware […]
