Avigilon Endorses H.264!

In a stunning turn of events, Avigilon is now endorsing H.264, declaring that H.264 streams result in "using less bandwidth and storage space without sacrificing image detail."

Welcome to the 21st century Avigilon! We are glad you joined the rest of us.

Alas, I am a little surprised given the years of non-stop JPEG2000 hyping and fear mongering about quality problems of H.264. On the other hand, given that they discontinued their 5MP and under JPEG2000 cameras earlier this year, I guess it should not be totally surprising.

However, Avigilon continues to heavily market their 'PRO' series (8-29MP) that are JPEG2000 only. Are they tacitly acknowledging a major weakness of the cameras (that most everyone else has been well aware of for years)?
