What IP Cameras Are NOT Made In China?

A member asks:

Now here's a suggestion that I would like IPVM to take forward on every product test going forward - Country of Manufacture. It's pertinent and would hopefully focus people minds that Trumps escalating trade war with China (and the rest of the world), that will have serious implications across a broad swathe of products. My feeling is that IPVM will be reluctant as it would dilute the argument against Hikvision - so lets see. Surely there is no justifiable reason to "hide" the country of manufacture is there?

We will add the country of manufacturer for each test. That's easy.

In addition, it would be valuable to have an overall directory of what cameras are not made in China. This discussion will be used to exchange ideas and share information to put this together.

The two biggest non-Chinese made manufacturers are Axis (factories in Thailand, Eastern Europe) and Avigilon (factories in Canada and USA). Who else can be added?
