Gentlemen, the Analog HD marketplace has three nearly identical technologies which are nearly completely incompatible. How this came to be is another story but...
left alone this situation will likely devolve into a chaotic mess of confusion and finger pointing which will be a big pain in the ass for everyone involved.
The agreement would be to openly share technology between Techpoint (Hikvision), Nextchip (Techwin) and Dahua (Dahua) to enable each to accommodate the relatively minor differences between the three Analog HD protocols.
Basically, it would allow any of the joint technology holders to put a Magic Switch in their chipset and allow any to any connectivity.
I believe that John and staff are uniquely qualified to entreat to the bargaining table these three beefy Asian conglomerates, for their own good and the good of the industry.
IPVM is apparently sending a delegation to the Far East; this would be an excellent time to engage several of the major players in this unfolding saga and effect a positive change that would have long term effects.
Do you think such a move would be beneficial to the Analog HD market?
To the industry in general?
