Arecont Attacks Competitors, Drops Prices

By Brian Karas, Published Jun 09, 2016, 10:04am EDT (Info+)

Arecont is fighting back against the surge of multi-imager cameras from Axis, Avigilon, Pelco, and soon Hikvision.

Referring to competitors as "clones", and dropping prices, they are taking an aggressive stance.

In this note, we examine Arecont's multi-imagers,  and contrast them to competitors, analyzing whether they are really 'clones' and whose are best.

So I guess Hikvisions first move is to discount their multi imager once it hits the market.
