China! – By the end of 2010, approximately 10 million cameras were installed in China as part of a nationwide buildup of an internal security infrastructure
City-wide deployments of 100,000-plus cameras in China are not uncommon, dwarfing even the largest European or U.S.A. “enterprise” projects. Chinese “Safe Cities” are rushing to construct their surveillance systems by fusing Internet, video surveillance cameras, cellphone, GPS location data, face recognition biometric databases and command & control centers. This growth in turn has resulted in vastly increased demand for technically advanced surveillance systems, thereby creating huge growth opportunities for foreign intelligent video surveillance systems manufacturers, vendors and distributors.
