Look at you trolling your own posts. If Arecont Vision is such a third rate player than why use them for your headlines? Nobody should care, right? Unless maybe there is something else going on here?
The fact is, Arecont Vision was the only manufacturer selling megapixel cameras 5 years ago. Other manufacturers that could have sold them decided to wait for an innovator to develop the market for higher resolution cameras. They didn’t want to make the significant investment of evangelizing the benefits and work with the different VMS providers to change their architecture to handle higher resolution cameras. It was a huge gamble that paid off but didn’t come without growing pains.
Because Arecont Vision is American made and their architecture allowed them for parallel production they were able to produce products in smaller quantities that larger, incumbent manufacturers could never do. Did they make mistakes along the way? Of course they did. Do they keep making mistakes? Of course they do. We all do (except for you of course).
Now again, you want to portray that you know something of the inner workings of Arecont Vision. You don’t. You don’t know how seriously problems are taken or how they are managed. But I do. You even make the assumption that you “get me” and that I would be doing far better than I am now if they better managed their company – you even imply that you know what I am feeling.
So what else is going on here John? We can clearly see that you have something personal for them (long before this post) but now you have crossed a line – A line that redefines IPVM’s objectivity as being suspect. You’ve turned a good thing into nothing more than a tabloid – how can we trust your objectivity? Before this post, I had to take any comparison you made on any product with a grain of salt because how could you know every setting in every camera (VMS etc)? But now it raises the question that you let your own personal feelings into your objectivity which effectively means you don’t have objectivity.
It’s a shame that you let your ego and personal feelings into your “reporting” and have to resort to such a deceptive post (to sell subscriptions, entertain or get even). The funny thing is you will never admit that you are wrong and that this post is no different than the misleading ads you have called out others on which is contradictory to your “Rebellious approach: to call out, debunk and stop misleading marketing practices”.
Now IPVM is nothing more than an online version of the National Enquirer – void of integrity and objectivity because of one man who can’t admit when he is wrong.
Now that would be a headline worth reading.
