Also funny is this IndigoVision claim:
"IndigoVision is also known for having the most open, end-to-end video security solution in the world. Every major camera manufacturer can be seamlessly integrated and managed with IndigoVision’s Control Center video management software."

Second place gets a set of steak knives.
- Bosch a 7/10
- Axis a 5/10
- Avigilon a 4/10
Ok, but I couldn't find 'hide nor hair' of IndigoVision's score...
Also, IndigoVision has a classically innane 'up to' claim:
"IndigoVision’s SMART.core technology gives highly optimised H.264 compression and ACF+, reducing storage costs by up to 95%."
Although I can't agree or disagree with their "tests", not having other cameras for comparison, I will say that their 12000 camera does provide excellent picture quality. We have been testing a beta version for a number of weeks. That said, I would love to see how it compares with its competition when tested by an unbiased tester.
For anyone who has yet to vote in the 'competition', remember in order to win you will need to submit to IndigoVision whatever your choice is.
Although how the winner is chosen is not stated, my intuition tells me that the best camera to choose might be IndigoVision, if for no other reason than it will make the required 'publicity agreement' a little less awkward, i.e. ("Although I actually voted for Avigilon, I have always respected IV...").
Also note that the airfare is listed as one person and "one return trip"' which is sure to spark energetic dialog about IV with ones significant other...
Update: It gets worse, the winner may be announced after the dates that the trip must be taken by:
...one return trip... which must be taken before 31/12/2015...
The winner will be announced by 31/12/2015...
Maybe if you are feeling lucky you can just go to Rio, and then get reimbursed after you win...
It's amazing the qty of crazy there is in this Industry...
I would really like if the other manufacturers replied with tests using the same cameras to see what results look like.
Has IndigoVision VMS been tested by IPVM? I cannot find it in any comparisons. Out of our 50 plus offices we have VMS installed we have about five Indigo installations that the local management chose. I think the sales team woo'd them with their compression claims, "10 year future proofing", extreme hardware life claims, open camera architecture, etc.
The company appears to have semi-slow growth and only appox. 52 million in revenue (2013). Given our spend of roughly 10+ million annually I would be hard pressed to be a customer that is 20% of their annual revenue.
Are there any reasons to seriously look at Indigo? Anybody a strong supporter or have experience with the product for large scale enterprise use?
Well, I'm biased! It appears to me that the IndigoVision 2K has the best image.
With that said, I have no idea if the image was taken directly out of the camera or if additional processing was done to make it look good. Or any other tweaks on the camera.
But I'm hoping to win the trip!
Hum.. Why Avigilon's FOV wider in low light image?
