5MP, SOHO megapixel IP cameras next big trends

Suppliers are ensuring compliance with quality standards to boost competitiveness. More cameras now conform to ONVIF or PSIA.


  • Higher resolution eyed: The bulk of releases adopt 1.3 or 2MP CMOS sensors with 720p resolution. With full HD a trend in many electronics products, many suppliers expect 3 and 5MP models will soon breach the mainstream.
  • Quality standards compliance: More makers are developing products that comply with ONVIF. Some companies are emphasizing conformance to PSIA. Larger operations such as Hikvision and Dahua support both standards.
  • Features & functions: Most megapixel IP cameras from China use IR LED lights and H.264 or M-JPEG compression. Wi-Fi and PIR sensor modules may be added on request. Many suppliers also offer browser support or applications enabling connection via smartphone or other mobile platforms.
  • SOHO sector rising: A growing number of companies are developing cameras for SOHO setups. Such models are typically compact and easy-to-install configurations.
