Some of the market trends disclosed by Sudhindra Holla emphasized the fact that Network Video had overtaken the Analog market in 2015. Investment by Government, City surveillance and Critical infrastructure was going up and with HD becoming an industry standard, high resolution and compression is becoming a key requirement. He also talked about Analytics usage picking up in India.
