ADI Launches HD Analog W-Box Series

By: Brian Karas, Published on Dec 13, 2016

Forget $100 MP cameras or even $50 MP cameras.

ADI continues to build its white label W-Box product portfolio, now adding HD analog for incredibly low prices.

In this note, we review ADI W-Box's new HD-TVI lineup and the impact on ADI's key suppliers like Dahua, FLIR and Hikvison.

Are you sure these cameras are supplied by Hikvision? They don't look like they come from Hikvision. Any CM can produce TVI product

Hikvision has been the supplier for other W-Box cameras and recorders, and there are terms used in the description, like "H.264+", that are very "Hikvision"

Also, look at the wording on this product: WBox TVI Camera and a Hikvision TVI camera under "Function", they have the same word order, and the same odd capitalization (Wide Dynamic Range and Digital Noise reduction), the dimensions and weight are also identical.

We have not tested these, so it is possible that the cameras and/or recorders are not Hikvision products, and ADI has only duplicated portions of wording and description from comparable Hikvision products, but is using hardware from a different supplier.

What a sad state of affairs. Chia Pets probably have much better margins than entry level video anymore! Clap on, clap off!

And Chia Pets not only have better profit margins, they also have better hair.
