Carlton, I jotted down some points from our conversation this morning for your reference.
Want Your Business: No response really – we do realize that competitors in our key practices would love to get our market share. However, we continue to see the reverse - probably due to the superiority of our products and technologies, solutions expertise, and customer first culture.
We'll Never Leave You Behind:
In July 2009, Verint released what March launched we believe in 2013 - scalable NVR up to 64 inputs over IP/analog plus more if a customer chooses to use encoders. Verint applications including the Vid-Center user application and Op-Center health monitoring and system admin. applications have always been backward compatible with our hardware platforms including EdgeVR, Net2 and Net1 recorders released in 2000 – 13 years back.
We are not sure where your sources got their data from. Based on what we know, March has changed / launched new hardware platforms every 1-2 years in the recent past including:
September 2011 - 4332C and 4324C Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs)
October 2012 - The 7532 windows based NVR
January 2013 - The 8000 Series
Proven Reliability (& Customer Satisfaction):
Across Verint businesses, more than 90% of the Fortune 500 financial institutions use Verint solutions:

We believe this is a testament to our solutions and practice leadership in banking and finance and our customer first organizational culture.
Here is our most recent customer foot-print in banking video surveillance (which continues to grow):
- More than 1,000 banks and financial institutions around the world use our systems including
- More than 50 of the top 100 US multinational banks and financial institutions
Verint NVRs have more analog or / and IP camera input capacity than March besides storage, etc. Customers upgrade based on their need and desire to use advanced technologies such as IP, storage, processing power, etc.
Hope this helps. Thanks
