When it comes to intelligent video surveillance in particular, AI-driven products are beginning to unlock new functionality, and even change the role video surveillance plays for companies. From better sensors to higher resolution cameras to more efficient processing units, we're seeing an unparalleled convergence of hardware and software. And that's creating new opportunities for everything from intelligent threat detection to personalized customer experiences. We're just at the beginning of this journey, but it's clear that best practices are changing.

These issues are not new; instead, they have reached a boiling point where the international business community is getting leary of putting too many eggs in China’s basket. The U.S. government has certainly done its share to bring many of these things to light. And while this is happening, and companies look elsewhere to move, the possibilities of increasing North America manufacturing has become more attractive than ever.
