Imagers: Expect higher quality, better processing and lower costs. At the high-end, I wouldn’t be surprised to see manufacturers upping their megapixel counts. 180 and 360 degree imaging, which is already pretty good, will also get better.
Thermal: As I wrote about earlier this year, thermal devices are getting smaller, cheaper and more ubiquitous. There could be a growth in dual visible/thermal imaging cameras, analytics designed to work specifically with thermal, and the use of thermal imaging in access control.
H.265: This video compression is not likely to be seen in cameras or encoders this year, but its buzz will grow as high-end digital cameras and 4K displays embrace this technology that enables efficient transport of very high resolution images.
