By combining their expertise with D-RON’s extensive reach and experience in the distribution of video systems, the partnership is set to deliver an innovative solution to customers to solve the main pain point such as operational efficiency, cost, bandwidth and security.

Research estimate that the global Video surveillance Market size, valued at USD 44.10 billion in 2021, will grow from USD 48.20 billion in 2022 to USD 98.18 billion by 2030, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% between 2023 and 2030.

The global video surveillance market is set for notable expansion due to increased security needs and technological advancements. The Asia-Pacific region, mainly China and India, will likely witness significant growth due to the rising adoption of video surveillance systems across sectors. However, growing device numbers and network traffic often cause performance and security concerns, emphasising the need for a comprehensive solution addressing network segmentation, data segregation, adaptability and security. Traditional methods fall short in terms of bandwidth, reliability, bidirectional protocols, and Quality of Service (QoS). Private networking is costly and demanding, adding financial pressure. Devices used in the surveillance market are very often reliant on legacy systems with inherent vulnerabilities leading to potential back doors. The expenses of acquisition, maintenance, and specialised expertise compound the challenges in video surveillance networks.

"This partnership signifies a pivotal moment in the world of cyber security and video systems integration," said Mr. Melvern Chia, Executive Director of Blu5. "As digital landscapes continue to evolve, our collaborative efforts will not only enhance protection against cyber threats and inherent system vulnerabilities the but also ensure that organisations can embrace technological advancements boosting economic, operational and energy sustainability".
