In-home Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) refer to the physical devices integrated into set-top boxes and CCTV cameras for video recording and storage. These DVRs employ local hard drives to digitally save video files. However, they come with limitations such as storage capacity and the number of simultaneous recordings, which are contingent on the number of tuners. For instance, a DVR with two tuners can only record and watch one show at a time. The burgeoning adoption of advanced technologies like AI, deep learning, and facial recognition in CCTV cameras is expected to augment the demand for in-home DVRs. Moreover, the increasing investment in smart city projects worldwide, encompassing smart infrastructure, security systems, and parking management, will further fuel the market growth for in-home DVRs.
