This Manufacturer Shuns IP Cameras

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Dec 14, 2017

One manufacturer has chosen a bold strategy in avoiding getting caught up in the race to the bottom: shun IP solutions.

We spoke with an executive from this company to better understand their approach to shunning IP, and what they offer as an alternative to IP, without going to HD-CVI or HD-TVI.

In this note we examine their strategy, why they say this was the right move for their company and target customer base, and what competitive risks they face doing so.
