Out of curiosity, what advice would you offer to Hikvision to become a significant player in North American Enterprise video surveillance systems?
It seems like Hikvision is moving in the enterprise direction with hirings of proven industry executives, a greater focus on the enterprise market, and a smart (professional) series product line with 4K resolution cameras and larger NVR's, while keeping a separate "value" product line for the SMB market.
Is the "Chinese" label and "budget brand" tag only perceptions that need to be overcome in order to be successful in the enterprise market? Or is there something deeper to it?
Which is more likely, Axis garnering significant market share in the SMB market or Hikvision successfully penetrating the enterprise market?
